From Snow Correspondents

Thanks to Peter who sent me a picture – of his – that has already appeared on BBC South. It shows the moon last night above St Helen’s Church. If the lunar eclipse was visible at all last night it would have been around dawn and from Cornwall and Devon – cloud permitting. Did anybody see it in Abingdon?

George, who I have not heard from for ages, sent me a picture of the crosses in St Edmund’s Churchyard. Each cross is a memorial to one of the Sisters of Mercy who came to help educate the poor of Abingdon in days gone by.

Richard sent two pictures, taken on Monday, where neighbours on Cameron Avenue – off the Radley Road – got together to clear their road.

    As a former Convent girl (1980s) I can tell you that some of the Nun’s graves are more recent. A few of my former teachers are there. Last June I went to a reunion because the Convent was celebrating its 150th birthday.

    Well done on the 150th. I was using a little poetic licence. It was with the same spirit the sisters of mercy carried out their work as when they first came to teach the poorer children of Abingdon.
