There is also a memorial wall where people can pay 50p to write a message, with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.

Landlady Samantha Oldfield said: “I just think people need to remember everyone that fought for us and lost their lives.

“I’ve had a really good response to it. It’s the first year I’ve done a big display like this and I think people have been quite shocked by it.”
