Friends of Abingdon is now two charities

The Friends of Abingdon was first formed in 1944 and had numerous successes over its 75 years. However times and challenges change and in 2018 it was agreed to reorganise into two separate charities:

  • The Friends of Abingdon Abbey Buildings Trust manages and cares for the Abbey Buildings and has ambitious plans for enhancing them and securing them for future generations.
  • The Friends of Abingdon Civic Society undertakes a range of activities aimed at making Abingdon a great place to live, work or visit, and to foster appreciation of and pride in the town’s heritage and environment.

The two charities work closely together but now have separate websites. To find out more, and how to get involved…
