The energetic ZumbAnita presented a Zumba demonstration and there were performances by Brize Norton Military Wives Choir, RAF Voluntary Band and Ryan Clayton on the bandstand.

Prizes for the Scarecrow Trail were presented by West Oxfordshire MP Robert Courts.

The organizers said: “We are so grateful to each and every one of you for supporting our event and helping to make it such a success. We were amazed at the turnout and it was certainly one of the most frequented in its 40 year history.
