The Abingdon Bunting Brigade have been toiling away to prepare wonderful festival bunting for the event at Rye Farm Meadow and they are collecting a steady stream of completed sections, all of which will be used to brighten up the event.
Groups which have joined in include the Guides, Scouts, a swimming club, the Rock Choir and residents of Bridge House Care Home.
Organiser Kay O’Regan said ‘This is exactly what we hoped for when we set this project up and we are delighted to officially welcome the whole team to the Bunting Brigade!’ Chantelle Merritt, the Lifestyle Coordinator at Bridge House said, ‘The residents absolutely loved making it and are very happy to have been part of a community project.’
There is still time for people to get involved and the Bunting Brigade’s facebook group has all the details.
