BBC historian Gareth Howell returns to recount the harrowing story of the end of the Great War.
What happened during the last year, to what extent did American assistance aid the European efforts, and what was the ultimate outcome of the war?
Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council are pleased to announce that from 21st October 2018, the Bus service 41 will be re-introduced.
This service is operated by Thames Travel and is based on the previous 41 service which stopped when the Oxfordshire County Council could no longer subsidise a lot of bus routes. Now Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council have funding for a year to bring the service back.
The Bus Serves South Abingdon on Monday to Friday. Please see link here for the timetable
Please note that the Council meeting on Wednesday 17th October 2018 will be held in the Main Hall of the North East Abingdon Community Centre, Lindsay Drive at 7pm. This meeting is open to the public. Please click here to find link to the agenda.
The organisers of next week's Abingdon Michaelmas Fun Fair are promising a bigger and better version of one of last year's hit attractions. Mission Space will replace the Sky Fly ride on Ock Street, towering 40 metres (130 feet) high. For two days only – next Monday and Tuesday – riders will be able to enjoy an exhilarating experience as they are twirled high over the rooftops of the Oxfordshire town.
100th Commemoration of the World War One Armistice
Please see below a list of events organised by the Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council to commemorate the First World War Centenary.
Abingdon Michaelmas Fair will take place on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th October from 12 noon to 11pm each day. The Michaelmas Fair is the longest street fair in Europe, running from the Market Place, through the High Street, The Square and the full length of Ock Street. This historic street fair has its origins in the shortage of labour following the Black Death of 1348/9. The Fair was a hiring fair, the equivalent of today's employment agencies and online job websites.
The Mayor of Abingdon-on-Thames, Cllr Margaret Crick, will be holding her Civic Service at 10:30 AM on Sunday 9th September in St Helens Church, Abingdon.
The Service will be led by the Rector of Abingdon, Dr Charles Miller.
All are welcome to attend the service.
