Mayor Making


The new Mayor - starting today - is Patricia Hobby. Her escort for the day was her Grandson.

The new Deputy Mayor is Duncan Brown.

The Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers revealed a new dance before the Mayor Making. ( Well! Not that new really, more long lost and newly re-discovered. ) It is called the Abingdon Broom Dance.

Not to mention all those innocent liddle-widdle caterpillars that were sacrificed for the silk sari.
