Dragon Boat team paddling for victory
Published on: 04 Sep 2015
This weekend is Dragon Boat weekend! Not sure if the most fun is had by the excited teams paddling down the Thames for victory in the races, or by the amused spectators admiring (?) the outlandish costumes and grimacing faces of the suffering paddlers.There's stalls, drinks tent and fun entertainments for families and it all takes place on the banks of the lovely River Thames. Good luck to all the teams and to the hard-working volunteers from Rotary Club of Abingdon Vesper! More details on the event listing byclicking here

The new flower baskets and central flower bed  in Roysse Court are now established and make a bright and welcoming view as visitors walk up in to town from the riverbank area.
