Families flocked to an event at Papplewick and Linby Village Hall to celebrate the 70th anniversary of VE Day.

Dry weather meant that some of the attractions were able to take place outside, including music by Nottingham Ukelele Orchestra and recordings of nostalgic songs played by Kevin Rostance.

Meanwhile, children congregated inside the hall for entertainment by Peter Presto’s Magic and Punch and Judy Shows. The event was organised by the Papplewick and Linby branch of the Royal British Legion.

Branch chairman Colin Tinker said: “It is a way for us to honour all those who fought for freedom and peace, including those who did not return.”
