Bra bunting decorated the pillars of the County Hall to announce that local charity Against Breast Cancer had taken over the Market Place for their Splash of Pink charity event.

The Mayor of Abingdon, Councillor Margaret Crick, was there to support the event and judge the shop windows. She stayed there a good couple of hours despite the rain.

The Abingdon Lions were also there supporting Splash of Pink, and tomorrow the lady next to Pikachu will be abseiling down the JR Hospital to raise money for the children’s ward (Just Giving page Here).

There were lots of lovely cakes on the Splash of Pink cake stall, and the Crown and Thistle were serving bacon butties, and beefburgers which were much needed to keep people warm inside.

For amusement, among other things, you could hurl a foam pie at someone’s face.

There were performances in the rain by Abbey Brass, Mr Hemmings Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers, Rock Choir, and Abingdon Operatic. They performed numbers from Top Hat which they perform soon, at the Amey Theatre – including the song ‘Isn’t this a lovely day (to be caught in the rain)’.

Winner of the best pink shop window was Willow’s Shakeshop. Second place went to Masons.
