People from an eventful weekend

Many good causes were being publicised at the Euro Rock Event and The Dragon Boats. Here are but a few, and some people you may or may not know,...

The Studio Theatre Club are performing The Recruiting Officer at the Unicorn Theatre from Wednesday 13th May to Saturday 16th May. Thanks to Alan for this picture. Seen here visiting the Euro Stall, and sporting a Euro bag, is a very dapper recruiting Officer. He was out recruiting people along to the show.

Abingdon and District Twin Towns Society had a display at both events. You can see their pictures of the weekend on the ADTTS Site.

And 2121 (Abingdon) Squadron, Air Training Corps, who meet near the Harley Davidson showroom in Whitecross, had a stall. Here is an opportunity for young people to join up and find their wings.

Cancer Research UK were making people aware of their Relay for Life in Abingdon. "..a tribute to those who have been affected by cancer. Over 24 hours on the 29-30th of August, 2009, teams of friends, family, neighbours and colleagues will gather at Radley College, Abingdon to take turns walking laps around the track and join in the party atmosphere.... and before then to raise money for life saving research"

On show at the Dragon Boats were wood carvings of Oxfordshire to be permanently displayed in the Guildhall. This lady carved the Old Gaol in Abingdon - bottom right.
