Mayor's Charity Ball

The Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers were dancing in the foyer as the guests arrived.

The mayor and her escourt sat at the top table...

Next to them were guest speaker Polly Vacher, and the chair of the Vale District Council. Polly told us of her recent Wings around Britain flight, where she flew between and landed at 221 different airfields in Britain - all in aid of Flying Scholarships for the disabled.

More than a few guests had civic chains. There were mayors from a lot of the surrounding towns.

There was a guess the name of the bear, a charity auction, and a raffle to raise funds for Phab and Age Concern.

and dancing to the sound of the Oxford University Big Band.
