We welcome people from all backgrounds and all ages. Whatever your experience, there’ll be something for you to enjoy!

Not to worry if you don’t have any artistic flair, we’ll be there to watch, although anyone is welcome to perform if they want! 10% of the bar profits that night will go to OCV, so it’s a unique way to support the organisation.

Everyone is welcome, and it’s a great way to find out more about OCV if you’re thinking of getting involved in our weekly tasks. No need to RSVP, but feel free to contact socials@ocv.org.uk if you have any questions.

Local produce market @ St. Nicolas Church, Abingdon
Jan 31 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

The St Nic’s local produce and craft market is back! Every Friday morning between 11am and 1pm there will be stall in the little garden at the top of Stert Street (in the church if wet) selling fresh veg, local eggs, home-baked cakes and preserves, plants, seedlings and flowers.

Go early to get the best selection!

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne ongho@dial.appleinter.net.

We are very happy to support this well-established venture bringing excellent, incredibly fresh local food right into the centre of town. Please help make it a success!
