Launch of Abingdon First World War website
Heritage Open Day: The photographic archive of Abingdon people who served in the First World War is now online - drop into the rolling presentation in the Guildhall on Saturday 18th September. In September 2014, the Abingdon Heritage Weekend exhibition was the starting point for a collection of local family photographs and other memorabilia about those who had served in the Great War. More exhibitions followed and more photographs and documents were added over the next 5 years. The Friends of Abingdon Civic Society took on the task of digitising the collection and making it into a user-friendly website so that people could use the collection to study local history, to find out more about their families or about the street in which they live.
