This Easter Saturday Nicola joined locals at Abbey Gardens in Abingdon to watch Eggbert’s Adventure’s first ever Egg & Spoon championships.
The event was organised by local author, Paul Gustafson, who wrote the ‘Eggbert’s Aventure’ children’s books and supported by local businesses as well as Visit Abingdon and the Town Council. As well as the egg and spoon races there were art workshops, a bouncy castle, facepainting and more children’s entertainment, all helped by the beautiful weather making it an enjoyable day for all.
Categories for the races ranged from four years old, to over 65s meaning anyone and everyone could take part, and Mr Gustafson is hoping to have broken the world record for largest egg and spoon race.

Nicola says: We are already known for known for our unique bun throwing tradition here in Abingdon, and now we can add the World Egg & Spoon Championship host to this list. It was great to see so many families taking part in the races, as well as local businesses coming together to support the event and make it such a fantastic day.
