St Mary’s Church, in 
Yatton, held its festive 
fete at the village’s junior school on Saturday and it was supported by the 
local community.

For anyone not sure what to get loved ones for Christmas, there were plenty of gift ideas 
on sale.

Potential presents on offer included soft toys, board games, jewellery items and crafts.

There was also a lucky Christmas dip and a mystery gift stall, whereby people picked random wrapped up presents to take home with them.

A raffle draw was also held, with a wide selection of prizes on offer to lucky ticket-holders.
