CHEEKY chaps tucked into tasty treats at a Christmas Fair in Somerset.

Members of Weare and District Scouts held a fund-raising evening selling delicious delights and Santa arrived in the village on Goodie the pony on a trap.

ILPH Good as Gold, or 'Goodie' to his friends, is a rescue pony who is being looked after by the trap driver, Pat Pomeroy.

The lucky lads greeted Santa at the village hall and managed to put in a few requests before he had to head back to his grotto in the North Pole.

Scout leader Mike Wilkinson said: "There wasn't any food left over so I think the scouts enjoyed themselves.

"We raised £270 during the event that will be spent on cooking equipment for camping."
