People in Weston sampled foods from around the world and enjoyed an array of games and entertainment at a charity Christmas fete on Saturday.

The event raised money for Bringing Communities Together (BCT), which promotes equality and diversity and offers English lessons to people from other countries, and took place at the charity’s base, in Alexandra Parade, on Saturday afternoon.

The day featured an array of games, including hooping Rudolph’s nose and feeling the stocking, while the Refugees Welcome North Somerset group was also on hand to offer information and chat to people about its work.

A BCT spokesman said: “Lots of people from the local community came to enjoy themselves at our Christmas fundraising fete.

“Lebanese and Moroccan food aromas filled the space, local crafts were on sale, and of course everyone had their face painted.

“Fabulous raffle prizes were won and we were entertained by flamenco dancers.”
