Abingdon Town Magazine

June 12, 2018

Abingdon Town Magazine
Edition One of Abingdon Town Magazine popped through the letter box of every home in Abingdon a few weeks ago. It is a wonderful magazine for local stories and content. A lot of magazines and local newspapers have some local content but are filled out with more general information. Abingdon Town Magazine is all about Abingdon.
Abingdon Town Magazine
There was a visit for a meal to the Limoncello restaurant.
Abingdon Town Magazine
There was an article about authentic Polish food on our doorstep, with four polish recipes from Polski Sklep ┼╗ubr, and an article about Aunt Sally, the local pub stick and skittle game.
Abingdon Town Magazine
There was an interview with John North of Masons, and My Abingdon by Matt Heritage of the Brewery Tap. And lots more.

I look forward to the next edition.

    Not through my door in Mill Road, it didn’t.

    Agreed – it was a decent local magazine. Hope they continue it.

    I hope this excellent magazine is distributed far and wide – everyone needs to know what a lovely town Abingdon is and all the good things that happen here.

    I agree – much better than some of the other magazines we have had from time to time.
    Interestingly, I have been told that part at least of the funding came from the BID. Before they came along, Choose Abingdon used to help fund this sort of thing. I wonder where the money to promote Abingdon – to local people, not just tourists – will come from now.

    Not through our door either… But a good idea though none the less…

    Missed a trick though; surely “Abingd-ON”. “A river, A town, Aspire”…

    Looks good. But I haven’t had one – south Abingdon. Anyone know who was responsible/paid for distribution?

    Looks like South Abingdon is not part of the distribution area. Let’s hope someone from the magazine’s team reads this blog and gets some copies to us.

    Not got it here in N Abingdon either. Perhaps it was just the centre or if your name began A-K or something.

    We got one here in North Abingdon. It seems a bit hit and miss generally.

    Not received – West Abingdon!

    It may be easier to identify who did get it!
