Abbey Come Abbey Go


The VoWH council are running a public exhibition in the recently renamed Abbey Shopping Centre on the 15th 16th and 18th January. The exhibition will be seeking everyone's views on plans to enhance the Charter Area of Abingdon - and will also show plans for the refurbishment of Abbey Shopping Centre. Pictures hopefully to follow after the 15th.

Meanwhile, at the top of the Shopping Centre, the Abbey bank looks about to morph into Santander.

In 2004 The Spanish Bank Santander aquired the Abbey National (renamed afterwards Abbey).

Why doesn't VoWH stick to the original name - The Bury Street Centre - if they must have 'Centre' The blue is not a particularly nice colour - why not use the green from the Town's Coat of Arms.

I think it's great and will be looking forward to seeing the plans. Abingdon has some lovely areas but that little street of shops is a complete eyesore - tired, tatty and shabby looking! I almost feel like an extra from Life on Mars when I walk down there such is the 1970s feel to the place! :-)

My name is Sam Tyler. I had an accident, and I woke up in 1973. Am I mad, in a coma, or back in Abingdon?
