The former Samuels shop in the Bury Street precinct has been transformed into a community free space. It is organised by the Friends of Abingdon Civic Society and allows community groups in Abingdon to showcase their activities.
The space opened during Heritage Open Weekend and some of the heritage displays still remain, such as the Abingdon Artists’ Historic Buildings, and aerial photographs of Abingdon.
The Abingdon Carbon Cutters, are in the shop this week, pressing apples and pasteurising apple juice using apples brought in by Abingdon residents.
On Saturday, Abingdon PCSO’s were also in there, and have left a display on keeping yourself and your property safe.
Another shop window in Abingdon has been used for a community display since September. Madrina are a charity who help young people who could not otherwise afford it, to go to their school or college prom.
