Be great to see lots of you down at The Star pub, THIS eve, anytime between 7:30 pm – 9:30pm ish (on Rectory Road which is off Cowley Road (turn at The Truck Store)) for a drink and/or some shared food and a catch up, after a little gap in directly Abundance-related things! There will be thank you cake for all those who’ve been helping throughout the year, and for those who’ve been generally supportive too and for new folks!
We’ve got a few things in the diary this weekend and next (see doodle poll here for more info on what’s happening when, & to sign up to help out if you can!)

Also, big THANK YOU to all those who helped at Disco Soup and who have helped with Abundance activities throughout the year in general! We’re going to have some kind of end of year do for all you WONDROUS volunteers, new and old, and so that will be one topic of discussion for tomorrow evening: what would you like to do?
