    Three good news stories in succession and hardly a coment between them! The bad news may provoke more overt reactions, but thank you Backstreeter for continuing to give us some good news as well – don’t think because we don’t respond we don’t like the posts!

    The flower festival is well worth a visit tomorrow if you didn’t manage today. Really Beautiful and clever arrangements of the themes Alastair describes.
    In the Pink in the Market a place great entertainment in a very good cause.
    The Fire station 50th anniversary celebrations also great fun, and it was great to see so many people turning out for it.
    I got chatting to sone relative newcomers to Abingdon who said how lovely it was that there was so often so much going on in the town.

    A great day in Abingdon. The flowers were wonderful. I expect we shall be seeing (in due course) photos and news from the other other two great events on today. Lots of us will be commenting then I hope!
