    About 20 motor scooters gathered mid morning on the Market Place, and were to be seen buzzing round town afterwards.

    14042113

     

    People were sitting outside at Costa, Java&Co and Throwing Buns.

    About half the shops in Abingdon town centre were open. Meanwhile the Fairacres out of town shopping centre, and Millets farm, were having a busy bank holiday as people looked to buy things for the house and garden.

    14042121

    We were not aware of any particular events in town. But there were quite a few people just visiting and walking down East St Helen’s Street, looking at the Alms Houses, and popping into St Helen’s Church where there were displays of Easter Lilies round the church. There is a growing tradition at St Helens for people to give donations for displays of lilies at Easter – to remember people they have lost.

    14042114

    Even more people were going to the river and the parks, and Mister Whippy was doing a steady trade.

    14042120

    Kevin from Walkabout Abingdon says that he already has a lot of forward bookings and endorsements as he enters into the second year of providing visitors with guided walks round Abingdon. He will be starting again in May, but today he was just enjoying the quiet bank holiday. He said he has recently started tweeting and recently tweeted “The History of Abingdon in 140 characters.” He asks if others would like to try to do better.

    The Vale of White Horse are about to sell Old Abbey House, now that arrangements for Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council, and Citizens Advice are finalised.

    Their advert says that it has Residential potential subject to achieving the necessary consents, and will be vacant by June 2014.

    Unconditional or conditional offers are invited by noon 16/04/14.

    This sign was spotted on the way up to the Vineyard the other day. As a guess, someone ordered the sign by email – r and n can get squashed together in a few fonts. He says does no-one proof-read these things? Or is there a new sponsor!

    14041724

     

    Not sure if you have spotted it but the Abingdon Exchange has closed down or at least all the shelves in the shop are empty and it looks a bit deserted.
