Community spirit has been in full show in Wrington, as the village’s history was re-told as part of Wrington Fair Week.

The celebration, which happens once every five years, began with a spring fete and then saw dozens of activities take place in the village.

Wine-tasting sessions, discos, barbecues, flower-arranging lessons and a family barn dance were just some of what the fair week had to offer.

The event began with a spring fete and ended with a fantastic pageant, which saw villagers line the streets to watch a re-telling of the village’s history.

Children experienced what it would have been like to be evacuated to the village during World War Two, classic cars were driven through the village and soldiers also lined its streets.

Villagers also enjoyed evenings of music, photography sessions, a scarecrow trail, as well as a treasure hunt.
