Another lovely window display from finishing touch

Easter shop
Another lovely window display from finishing touch in Stert Street this Easter.
Further up the street a shop window, formerly Sweet Chocolate, is under wraps. So we can no longer get our Easter treats from there this year.

According to an article in the Oxford Times the new proprietors already have branches in Oxford, Cowley, and Witney where they promote and sell E-Cigarettes.

Health Centre’s new traffic barrier makes the news

Car Park
The new traffic barrier at the Marcham Road Health Centre has made the news again.

Both the Health Centre and Community Hospital next door are run by the NHS, and appear to be thriving from the amount of traffic they attract. Abingdon residents have campaigned on more than one occasion in the last fifteen years to keep the Community Hospital open, and so its success is good news.

But parking has become a problem and so the Health Centre has introduced a barrier to ensure their patients and staff can find parking when they need it.
Car Park
It leads to a strange sight at weekends when an empty Health Centre Car Park is seen alongside a busy Hospital Car Park.

Unicom Theatre and Abingdon Exchange

Martin spotted this new sign walking up the Vineyard the other day. He says he is guessing someone ordered the sign by email – r and n can get squashed together in a few fonts. He says does no-one proof-read these things? Or is there a new sponsor!
Abingdon Exchange
Ashley says “Not sure if you have spotted it but the Abingdon Exchange has closed down or at least all the shelves in the shop are empty and it looks a bit deserted
