    Many thanks to all of the members of the Flowers Club. The displays were stunning and provided a bright spot in that corner of the town. Using an empty shop unit for Community groups is a good idea.

    The Comminity FreeSpace is managed by the Friends of Abingdon: if other groups would like to use it (as the name implies, it is free) there is more information at We have had some great displays in there recently and it would be good to see that carry on in the New Year.
