More than 1,500 people visited the town’s first ever Feelgood Festival.

The event was put on by the Warriors of Wellbeing, a group of organisations aiming to change how mental health is viewed in North Somerset.

As well as the games and activities, visitors were signposted to various mental health services.

Helen Yeo, from North Somerset Council’s public health team, said: “It was great to see so many people and organisations coming together to talk about mental health and how to combat stress.
