Easter Saturday

In the window of Frugal Food I see that various events are advertised today. Roy Bailey and John Kirkpatrick are playing at the Unicorn Theatre (Old Abbey Buildings) tonight. There is an Easter Fair for Radley Lakes at Radley Village Hall. And between those events is a poster asking 'Is there more to life than this?' advertising the Alpha Course.

Andrews the Estate Agents have replaced most of the houses in their window with the easter egg pictures, coloured in by children from St Nicks school.

There is a huge banner advertising the Alpha course outside Ock Street Baptist Church. I couldn't get it all in without stepping back and getting run over.

I went to a good church service at Ock Street Baptist church yesterday, where we all gathered at the front (about 150 people) to sing the last two songs, and it felt like being part of a huge choir.

Today, some of the people from that church were giving out easter eggs in little bags. Included in the bag was an invitation to the Alpha course saying 'Dinner and discussion about the Christian Faith. Friday evenings at 7pm starting 13th April. Abingdon Baptist Church.

It was a lovely day in town. The easter cakes in the window of Baker's Oven enticed passers by...

Holland and Barratt were giving away 3 for the price of 2 on everything.

and not far away a swans nest has appeared.

thanks for the coverage of the great Easter Egg giveaway by Abingdon Baptist Church. Much appreciated.

The event also merited a few "in brief" lines (without photo) tucked on page 10 of the Abingdon Herald, 12th April. I ought not to sound churlish, but I had hoped for a better spread.

Anyway. Thanks again.

The Herald gave a very small piece about Abingdon becoming a Fair Trade town, while in the same week they had a much larger article about Wallingford town council rejecting the Wallingford Fair Trade bid. Conflict is what makes a story.
