A village held its annual fete in commemoration of the First World War.

Leafield resident, 16-year-old Jake Acock, organised the celebration, which he restarted, after a four-year hiatus, last year.

The teenager put together the fete, which was held yesterday.

It had a First World War theme with organisers dressing up as soldiers and land girls; the village was decorated with poppies and cars from the era were on display.
