Banwell Football Club, in Riverside, hosted a fair on July 29, with hundreds of people turning out to try a range of different activities.

Birds of prey expert Avon Owls held an exhibition at the fun day, letting children get their hands on some of its creatures.

A giant tortoise was the star attraction at the event, with boys and girls queuing up to have their picture taken.

A dog show also proved popular and many people watched on as well-trained pups executed their routines to perfection.

The fun day also featured a range of stalls where people could get their hands on some hand-crafted gems created by arty villagers.
