I have just found your blogs while looking for news abou the floods. How glad I am that I have done so! Having appeared in the play 'Two Angry Women of Abingdon when Abingdon Drama Club performed it as part of their 40th (I think!) anniversary celebration, it brought bqack many happy memories. I can also remember when Margaret Jones and Co painted the underpass originally.

I can assure you that your site is being saved to 'My favourites'.
