The voluntary, community and social enterprise groups attended Your North Somerset on Sunday, where more than 3,500 people viewed stalls, tried food and watched some entertainment.

It was organised by Voluntary Action North Somerset, and its operations manager Lorna Muffett said: “Lots of people have told me how surprised and delighted they are by the wide range of charities, support services and entertainment on offer today.

“We’ve had free face-painting and henna tattoos as well as a chance to find out about volunteering, long-term health conditions, local theatre and lots more.”
