FAMILIES enjoyed a First World War pageant day in Quedgeley on Sunday.

A Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flew overhead while visitors to the event at Severn Vale School enjoyed a range of activities.

There were displays including martial arts, dog agility and music as well as stalls by a host of organisations including the police, South West Ambulance Service, Quedgeley Youth Parish Council, the local scout group and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

In the evening Gloucester Mayor Deb Llewellyn arrived by horse drawn carriage with a group of Chelsea Pensioners for a Songs of Praise presented by the Rector of Quedgeley and Kingsway the Reverend John Ward.

It was followed with music from the war eras by the Gloucester Excelsior Band, a concert based on Dads Army and an Act of Remembrance for those who died in the First World War.

All money raised will go to Help the Heroes.
