First Winscombe Scout Group raised £1,500 at its Christmas café and fair.

The money will be used to help young cubs, scouts and beavers with new equipment.

Homemade cakes, crafts and even Christmas trees were sold at the community centre, in Sandford Road.

Father Christmas also read festive stories to the children in Santa’s grotto.

Games corners were set up for all the family to enjoy, while yummy festive refreshments were available in the cafe.

Alison Williamson, secretary of the scout’s fundraising committee, said: “We are so pleased with the amount raised on the morning, and would like to thank everyone who came and supported the children.

“We are very well supported by the village and shops which kindly donate gifts for us to sell, which we are extremely grateful for.

“Overall, it was a great morning, with lots of fun and smiling faces, which was fantastic to see.”
