PUPILS in Abingdon will help protect local memories of World War One ahead of the centenary of the conflict's end.

Members of the public are invited to Our Lady's Abingdon School on Friday to bring wartime artefacts and heirlooms and share their stories about them.

A team of Year 9 and Lower Sixth students will be on hand to carry out interviews, photograph the items and upload them onto an archive Oxford University is creating.

Anyone with a relative's letter from the front line, medals, helmets or souvenirs from World War One, is asked to bring them along.

The Abingdon event will take place from 1pm until 4pm. Refreshments will be available and there is no need to book.
