I WAS delighted to learn that the Abingdon Town Council has agreed to the principle of renting the Abbey Hall to the Regal Cinema of Evesham until the summer of 2020, while plans for the Hall’s long-term use as a ‘Community Hub’ are developed.

Will the Community Hub include a large public hall for community use, as provided by the Abbey Hall, or does it plan to build one elsewhere in the town centre? It was for such an essential community facility that Abingdon town residents submitted their petition at the end of last year. The residents have a right to know the council’s thinking.
