Visitors were entertained by re-enactment groups who organisers say never fail to impress.

A statement said: “The Wartime Village would like to say a huge thank you to the re-enactors, sponsors, stalls, supporters and visitors who, together, made this second Wartime Village event pleasurable and fun.

“The team have worked hard over the past months to create this event in support of the Village Church Farm Museum; every penny raised helps to keep the museum open to the public throughout the year.

“Without your support there would be no event and we are always happy to welcome you all back next year.”
