News from Abingdon

The County Council has resurfaced Lambrick Way near the Marina.

The County have added these little chess pieces in the road approaching the Guildhall. Just beyond, some of the blocks in the road supplied for the recent Abbey area redesign are chipping. Tests are being done to see if they are a sub-standard batch. The district council are in discussions with suppliers and contractors to get them replaced.

There is a new Polish Delicatessen about to open in Stert Street. Importing Polish food has become big business of late. The signs in the window are in both Polish and English.

Work continues on the Market Place, and it looks like the workers have done a smooth job with the surrounding York Stone slabs.

Chancellors won't be there much longer. Their new premises on the High Street was having the carpet tiles fitted today.

Colours all around

A sky blue casement window at the Nags Head overlooks one of the smaller arches of Abingdon Bridge.

Forsythia is in bloom and behind it can be seen the Upper Reaches Hotel.

At the top of Bridge Street, a face peeps through a sea-side peep-hole, grinning madly, with colour all around.
