    Thinking about community “stuff” why can’t the Friends of Abingdon get more involved with the town centre rather than focusing on the Abbey Buildings? reason being the old No-Tag shop on the Square is in a very poor state, very dilapidated, such a shame to see this beautiful old building like this, it is on the Market and the price reflects its condition, why doesn’t the F of A buy it and make a community shop of it? citizens advice? tourist information? etc etc.

    Friends of Abingdon already run the community shop in the precinct. FoA recently split into two charities, one focused purely on the maintenance and sustainability of the Abbey Buildings, and the other is a civic society that do many community based activities including running the community shop.

    I’m sure Hester can provide more details

    Happy to have a chat with you about the role – and limitations – of the Friends of Abingdon Civic Society. Probably easier to do it over a coffee in town some time than via this blog, but in the meantime if you or anyone else reading this – wants to find out a bit more take a look at our website
