Two MPs and a Boxing Match

Last night there was a lot going on...

David Cameron, MP for Witney, and leader of the Conservative Party, was at Larkmead School in Abingdon talking to people as part of his Euro and County Council election tour. (Thanks to Elizabeth for this picture).

Dr Evan Harris, MP for Abingdon, was at a showing of the film 'The Age of Stupid', followed by a discussion about issues raised by the film. (Thanks to Martin for this picture)

There was also boxing at the Guildhall. Very popular this prooved.

It began with a few younger boxers and worked its way up. This young lad from Abingdon Town Amateur Boxing Club went on to gain the best performance of the evening award.

There were about 15 bouts in all.

Evan Harris came to watch the boxing after the politics was over.

The boxing club is raising funds for a new gym on Caldecott Rec. For more info see the Boxing Club Website.
