Windwhistle Primary School, based in Kingsley Road on Weston-super-Mare’s Bournville estate, moved its Christmas fair from a Friday to a Saturday as it has grown to such a big event, and it proved as popular as ever.

It raised £800 for the Parent Teacher Association, which buys treats for the children.

The fair was packed with craft stalls and games.

One stall, called My Chocolate Explosion, sold bouquets of chocolates.

People took part in a lucky dip, bought Christmas gifts and decorated biscuits, and children were able to meet Santa.

They were also able to relax and enjoy a hot chocolate, complete with marshmallows and whipped cream.
