Oxfordshire's Grove and Wantage Extravaganza recently made a triumphant return, uniting communities and entertaining residents.

This year, the festival celebrated the 80th anniversary of D-Day, featuring live music from a duo singing 1940s songs, military vehicles, a funfair, a circus workshop, a dog show, falconry displays and a spectacular flypast.

House-builder, Barratt and David Wilson Homes, marked their third consecutive year of support, donating £500 towards the event.

This aligns with the company's ongoing commitment to the community, particularly those residing near their Brookside Meadows development on Denchworth Road.

This festival, attracting over 3,000 attendees annually, was held at Grove Rugby Club.
