Villagers paid homage to the 1940s as Sutton Primary School staged a summer fete on Saturday.
Manea Silver Band provided the soundtrack to the event, while revellers enjoyed the vintage tea room and beer garden.
There was a martial arts demonstration and the police and fire brigade turned up in their vehicles for the children to explore.
In keeping with the 70th anniversary of VE Day theme, there was also a memorabilia stand where you could see guns and grenades and even try on a helmet.
Local tradespeople showcased their goods and there were performances from lane Academy and Little Rascals.
The fete, which was organised by the Friends of Sutton School, raised hundreds of pounds for the school.
Committee member Louise Harvey said: “It was lovely to see so many people turn out in spite of the wet weather. They showed true British spirit.”
