AN AGE-OLD village market is being kept alive by Banwell residents determined to hold on to their tradition.

The community is hosting the annual sheep market, which no longer sells livestock, at the disused fire station in East Street from 10am-4pm on Saturday.

Dozens of villagers are expected at the event, which will feature a book sale, cakes and punch.

Money raised will go toward restoring the building, which the county fire service withdrew from in the 1980s.

Restoration funds would go toward rebuilding the chimney stack, repairing guttering and a lead-lined window.
