Shutting Up Shop

Today, Friday August 28th, is the last day of operations for the AbiMeds team. With more than 3,700 packages delivered by bicycle, demand is declining and some of our volunteers are returning to their “normal” activities, so it’s time to shut up shop.

Our phone line (01865 818351) will stay open a while longer to provide information to anyone still finding it hard to get their prescriptions, and in the next day or two we’ll put some guidance here on this website.

So one final thank you to all our 80+ volunteers – telephone answerers, hub team and cyclists; also to the Town Council for help with photocopying and the Friends of Abingdon Civic Society for use of the Community Freespace – our “Hub”.

Lets just hope we never need to do this again, but if we do, we know how to do it!
