VILLAGERS in Tiddington have fought and won for the honour of Oxfordshire.
On Friday they took part in the annual tug-of-war across the River Thame against their Buckinghamshire rivals in the village of Ickford.
The annual tug-of-war between the two villages is a tradition that dates back 63 years.
Carpenter Dan Brownsill, 33, the captain of the Oxfordshire team, said: “I am very pleased. It was very hard, but it was one of the best pulls we have had for probably 10 years.
“I have been pulling for 21 years and I wouldn’t say I look forward to it because it is hard every time, but it is a very good tradition.”
Including this year’s victory, Tiddington have won the competition for the last four years.
