RESIDENTS have been reminiscing on Christmases past in the We Grew Up In Weston-super-Mare Facebook group.

A photo of the High Street Christmas Bus from 1972 was shared on the social media group, which was created so that locals can remember times gone by.

Many remember the bus well. One commenter said: "I was barely a few months old when that pic was taken (yeah I feel a bit old now).

"But I do remember when I was a bit older in my toddler days, visiting the High Street and ALL the shops on it! Was a busy place back then."

Another added: "Remember it well, that's when we had a bustling High Street with all the shops full and hardly any charity shops."

One Weston local said that the photo brings back "good memories", with another saying the town in those days was "a great place to be."
