My Abingdon

Abingdon ward Councillors have focused attention on supporting small improvements to the local area that would achieve high impact. With this in mind, they contributed towards a review of Abingdon’s Conservation Area Policy via the Edwardes Square and Scarsdale Abingdon Association by funding an architectural historian to assist in the review. Councillors also funded a volunteer-maintained weather station in Pembroke Square and match funded the enhancement of gardens surrounding Chatsworth Court Garden by the Earl’s Court Road. Councillors also committed to supporting young people via coordinating the promotion activities for young people, both in the ward and in the borough and the sponsorship of a dance class for young adults with disabilities.

This year, and more recently Abingdon Councillors has been readying the unveiling of a Blue Plaque for Lady Churchill, who lived in Abingdon and are supporting efforts to increase footfall to the parade of shops on Stratford Road. Plans are also underway for Councillors to disseminate useful council contacts to local residents.
