The doors to Kewstoke Village Hall were thrown open on Saturday to allow buyers to snap up attractive craft items.

Ornaments, figurines, bags and more were on sale.

Parishioners also organised a raffle to raise money for the village church.

Prizes included a toy snowman, bottles of wine and useful home accessories.

For some people mid-November may feel a bit early to begin buying up stocking fillers.

However, it is not too soon to begin thinking about Christmas cards, with just six weeks to go until the big day.

Helen Lowe and Grace Pryce-Jones sold handmade greetings cards at the craft event.
