Wild Wet event with gunfights and native American dancers.


A SOMERSET pub became a rootin’ tootin’ saloon at the weekend to raise money for charity.

The Fox And Goose in Bristol Road, Brent Knoll, hosted gunfights, native American dancers, horse riders, face painting and fancy dress all on the theme of the Wild West. A western town and encampment was also set up complete with a sheriff’s office and saloon.

The event, held on Sunday and Monday, helped raise money for Help for Heroes.
