The Town Council aims to keep residents informed through a mixture of digital and print media so that there is a way to access information that suits everyone.
This website, hosted and managed by the Town Council, carries a breadth of information across all the sections and covers every aspect of the town council's buildings and services including the Museum and Guildhall as well as general town information, an interactive events calendar, guidance for visitors and tourists, a history section run by our local historical society. The community section features a list of clubs and societies active in the town, and a business directory. Locals are able to uplaod any event in town to the web diary. This will be greatly appreciated by people of ages in the town. Anything else you notice please send a message through the site or call in at Information at the front of Guildhall before 3.00 pm.
There are two social media accounts (facebook and twitter) in use by the Town Council which often link to articles on this website and a What's On twitter account which publicises events that are on the calendar and provides links to the appropriate pages. A town app is in development.
The council produce a residents’ newsletter called the Town Crier which is delivered to 14,000 household and businesses within Abingdon-on-Thames twice a year.
We also research and produce the Abingdon-on-Thames Official Guide which is printed and delivered to every household and business within Abingdon every two years. The latest copy was published in summer 2015.
The Abingdon-on-Thames Official Map is also provided by the council and delivered every two years to every household and business in town.
Look out for the What's On in Abingdon-on-Thames pages which are published in Round and About magazine and the Events listings outside Guildhall.
Copies of all the above publications can be picked up in the Abingdon Information Centre and most of the information in the above publications is also reproduced across this website.
