Their own Squire, The Mayor of Ock Street, can be seen here with the sword and cup and Horns of Ock Street.

The Church of England have delayed their celebration of St George as we are so close to Easter, but that did not apply to Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers who made sure it was remembered on April 23rd.

    It is a good thing that we celebrate our traditions and history.

    The Town Crier was also out in the morning to remind people it was St George’s Day and Shakespeare’s Birthday.
