Didcot Railway Centre hosted 225 school children at their D-Day Commemoration Day. I think this is a great shot of Ladygrove Primary pupils Bethany Wright and Adam Baker skipping down the platform, gas mask boxes flying. Nice composition, nice colours, a fine job of taking us back in time by Ed Nix

Hastily skipping over the issue of whether you can May dance in June (I believe the event was postponed for some reason) Mark Hemsworth has caught a lovely moment from the event at Batt CE Primary School.

Liuguoqing in acrobatic splendour as ‘Immortal Chi’ put on a show as part of the Oxford Pride Parade
