The Mayor of Abingdon-on-Thames opened the Abingdon Baptist Church Christmas Fayre at 10 am.
The Town Crier announced that purchasers could enjoy a ‘plethora of perusing pulpitude’, or something similar. He knows some long words and strings them together in an astonishing alliterative assemblage.
Inside there was a lot to buy.
On the way in, we were given a Christmas Card with the word ‘JOY’ and tokens to get free drinks from 35 Ock Street, the Church in Abingdon’s open cafe, on the premises. We got two coffees and bought a large piece of carrot cake for £1.60 that we shared. My wife said it was the best carrot cake she’d ever tasted.
