    Thankyou Backstreeter for your excellent coverage of the Heritage Weekend – and huge thanks to all those who worked so hard in the planning beforehand. There was so much to see, experience and enjoy – so many organisations, groups and individuals involved. Thankyou to all for showing what Abingdon was and is – a great community town to be part of.
