Co-op Day 3

Entertainment was laid on for the first Saturday since the new Co-op opened.

A D.J. was playing the Travelling Wilberries when I went in.

Clowning around were Abbey and Teabags, who did free face painting and balloon modelling. On the subject of tea, one lady was telling me that it was good to be able to get '99' tea again in Abingdon. But she wondered why there was no delicatessen like the old co-op. People of her age like to get only a couple of slices of ham, or bacon, and have it cut as they want.

On the other hand Frugal Food has a deli next door, as has Added Ingredients.
