Community Shop Returns in the old Gas Board Showroom

April 26, 2013

Community Shop
The community shop is back after a year off – due to the redevelopment of the Abbey Shopping Centre. Community groups will soon be able to promote themselves in the community shop with exhibitions, and / or activities, and anything that makes the town vibrant.

May and September are already fairly booked up but if your community group would like to use the shop email Hester ( ). Both Hester and Heather (pictured above) have worked on this venture. Together they represent The Friends of Abingdon and the Choose Abingdon Partnership.
Community Shop
The shop was until recently a toy shop and, Hester reminds me, it was once the old Gas Board Showroom.

It must have been where we bought our first oven in 1986 – a Flavia Festival with oven, 4 gas rings, and grill above.

    I do hope that this time the people using the community shop will make it look presentable. Last time many people just put a few posters in the windows and it looked like empty. All it needed was the typicle poster advertising a circus to be complete.
