Abingdon Museum Friends
Abingdon Museum Friends work with and for Abingdon County Hall Museum, in its role as a focal point for Abingdon’s residents, the provision of a tourist destination for visitors and as a place to learn, understand and enjoy the heritage and environment of Abingdon.
The Friends organisation supports the Museum through fundraising and voluntary work. They meet monthly during autumn and winter for a variety of talks and social gatherings. In the summer months there are day trips to other museums and places of interest both locally and further afield. Past visits have included seeing the new bells of St Helen's church, before they were commissioned, and the Birmingham Backs-to-Backs, an art gallery trip.
The Friends funded the acquisition of a delightful watercolour by Nathaniel Sparks. It shows a riverside view of Abingdon from Fairlawn Wharf and dates to the early part of this century. Money raised through the events programme has contributed to other projects, such as the transfer of old film footage of Abingdon onto videotape
