YOUNGSTERS at Shiplake Primary School are playing their part to cement a friendship link with children in northern France.
Year five pupils at the Memorial Avenue school have written letters to schoolchildren in Ors.
They decided to put pens to paper after a visit from Beth Timms, from the Dunsden Owen Association, a group celebrating First World War poet Wilfred Owen’s connection to the village.
Owen lived in Dunsden from September 1911 until February 1913 and was a lay assistant to the vicar of All Saints’ Church.
Teacher Emily Potter said the children were studying their local history topic and Mrs Timms came and spoke to them.
