A bit of The Mayor of Abingdon's Day

The Mayor, Patricia Hobby, was there this morning to cut the ribbon and toast Dream Doors, the new kitchen refurbishment business run by Mike & Elaine (centre). All the best to them.

The Mayor was also there with her team, most of Abingdon Town Council, to play Phab at carpet bowls and a quiz this evening.

Nigel Carter, him in the sky blue, runs the Phab club, who meet every Thursday at Christ Church Centre. Phab's aim is to create opportunities for children and adults of all abilities to enjoy life together. Nigel makes that 'mission statement' fun.

In terms of carpet bowls the create opportunities bit means that those who have not got as much muscular control as the rest of us can use a bit of guttering to aim the ball.

At the end of the evening the Mayor presented Nigel with the annual Abingdon Town Council v Phab Trophy.
