Mince pie Marathon raced ahead today (but Mummers Play postponed)


The Jack FM and Smeg mince pie marathon has been going for 24 hours with around 5000 mince pies being baked between 19th and 20th December.

They were being baked at Smeg’s new appliance showroom in Abingdon and delivered to care homes, fire stations, police stations and¬†other places of work all round Oxfordshire.

There were also mince pies for sale at Abingdon’s Fairacres Retail Park, the Market Place and Smeg’s HQ. People can leave donations at the https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/smeg-ukmincepiemarathon¬† to help the charity Special Effect who develop inclusive technology.

The Abingdon Mummers have postponed their tour of the pubs of Abingdon. The upsurge in Covid has made it difficult to get a full team. Their Charity is Be Free Young Carers. They may still do a tour sometime in the new year.

Here they are wishing you a Merry Christmas five years ago.
