Last Weekend – This Weekend

The riverside, riverside bars, and open air pool were not so full this weekend in Abingdon. There were not so many people taking the Salter’s steamers as last weekend.

Warning notices appeared last weekend along the River Thames in Abingdon and along the mill stream. The cooler weather and faster flowing river, this weekend, should at least reduce the risk from toxic algae.

But nevertheless, please don’t paddel.

Happy New Year MMXVII

My Latin is not very good, but it looks like the monk on the roundabout, near Fairacres and Tesco, is wishing us all a Happy New Year in MMXVII.

Man for all Seasons & Christmas Carol

Man for all Seasons
Man for all Seasons is being advertised on the new fence outside the new flats on Stert Street. Like many Abingdon Drama Club productions this is likely to be a sell out.

Next to that on the fence is a Christmas Carol by Oxon Film and Stage Works, also at the Unicorn Theatre.

Strong River Flows – Rowing Cancelled

Rowing Cancelled
The Abingdon Rowing Club Committee have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Abingdon Spring Head of the River time trials. Not only can’t they get all their landing platforms, and other equipment, up to Rye Farm Meadow, but also it is too dangerous for rowing.

Announcing the 20p Christmas Card Postal Service

20p Christmas Post
5 Scout Groups and 2 Guide Companies from the Abingdon area run the 20p Christmas Post in Abingdon, Northcourt, Radley and Shippon.20p Christmas Post
Last year they collected, sorted and delivered about 6400 cards.

They have been running the service for 20 years.

They have 2 ’sort’ evenings, the first about a week before the closing date and the other on the closing day.   Around 30-50 people help with the sorting.  They don’t deliver any cards until after the second sort.

Each group is allocated an area of Abingdon, Northcourt, Shippon or Radley to deliver. They then split their cards into rounds of about 50-100 cards. This means that about 100 youngsters, many accompanied by parents, deliver the cards before Christmas.
