An inaugural summer fair was held in the tourist town to raise money for the Cheddar Youth Trust, which presents grants to people aged five to 25 which can make a big impact on a child’s education, training or sport.

Youth trust representative and parish councillor Corran Fineran said: “The idea is to help and support a child or young person to achieve their ambitions or simply take part in an activity which they could not normally afford.”

Organiser Georgi Cooper said: “I have always wanted to organise and host a fair to help promote local traders and when I learned more about the Cheddar Youth Trust, it seemed like the perfect charity to raise money for.

“There was such a great atmosphere with great stalls including Beauty By Kimberly and Sweet Dreams.”
