Brian Eastoe with the Ox & Bucks Woodcarvers (who meet at Abingdon College) have an exhibiton today in the Roysse Room, as part of the Abingdon Arts Festival.
They are asking people to choose their favourite work with a poll.
The exhibition was meant to run for two days and so they apologise that there was a mix up yesterday.

Thanks to Verity for the picture.
There will also be an Easter Party in the Albert Park on Saturday 31st March, 2 pm to 4 pm. This has become an annual family event.

I was told that a vehicle was set alight on this footbridge, in Southern Town Park, back in January 2012. The bridge is on the route to the Drayton Road Allotments and used by people getting to the allotments or out on walks.
The tape and bollards, put up at the footbridge after the incident, are gone. People have found other ways round for the moment. I can see a track has been trod across sports fields which used to be fenced off and free from dogs. I hear the Vale of White Horse District Council have it scheduled to repair in April 2012. The sports club and people going that way will be very glad when the footbridge finally gets mended, so the sooner the better.
