The intergenerational tea party held at the Sawtry Old School Hall bought together the older community to give them a chance to remember World War Two.
Co-organiser and community development officer for Care Network Cambridgeshire Susan Bate said: “We thought it would be nice to give the older generation a chance to talk about their experiences.”
During the day the youngsters were given an activity pack to carry out with their elders which included stories from the war and a quiz that the groups could do together.
Everyone was given a chance to reminisce with artefacts from the past displayed by the Sawtry History Society.
