Christian Aid Week and East St Helen Street Bunting


On the Market Place today, a stall was selling cakes, plants and books for Christian Aid. Christian Aid week ran from 15th – 21st May. There was some door to door collections using paper envelopes. This year there is also the Abingdon e-envelope for online donations: https://envelope.christianaid.org.uk/envelope/abingdon-christian-aid

This morning the people of East St Helen Street were putting up their bunting for the Jubilee celebrations.

I am not sure we on West St Helen Street will be able to match them, but we will see. Two weeks to go.

    Hard to judge without seeing it in person but the bunting seems a little low? Is there a risk of vehicle contact?

    Are any permits required to erect this?

    Backstreeter Рnow there’s a challenge! Can the good folk of Backstreet assemble as much bunting as those in Fore Street? You have less than 2 weeks!

    Nothing says “Party!” like bunting! I also noticed the royal standard … illustrious guests?
