Christmas Craft Fair

This craft fair was organised by Abingdon Town Council.

Peter Green opened the event with his Town Criers bell. Children were saying he looks a bit like Father Christmas - except in green.

The real Father Christmas was there with The Abingdon Lions. He will be out and about round Abingdon between 6 PM and 8 PM on the following busy schedule...

Mon 7th : Sellwood Road / South Avenue
Tue 8th : Appleford Drive
Wed 9th : Mill Road
Thu 10th : Preston Road
Fri 11th : Audlett Drive

Mon 14th : Peachcroft Northwest
Tue 15th : Peachcroft Southeast
Wed 16th : Hanson Road / Langley Road
Thu 17th : Boulter Drive / Alexander Close

Not sure why he does not do the town centre. That is one thing I miss living here - the approach of the sleigh bells.

Many stalls had Christmas goodies.

On the Added Ingredients Stall there was somebody cooking up and letting people sample hot sauces.

Members from the Abingdon Concert Band were playing carols this week. I do have a video - to be shown tomorrow.
