CLEVEDON and Nailsea were brimming with Christmas spirit as revellers turned out in their hundreds for the towns' festive fayres.

The wet and windy weather failed to put people off as they flocked to St Nicholas Fayre in Hill Road, Clevedon, on December 6.

Bob Reynolds Jazz Band, Nailsea Folk Choir, the Salvation Army and Clevedon Light Opera Club entertained shoppers as they browsed the many stalls and tucked into mulled wine and mince pies.

There were also line dancing displays and fairground rides and Father Christmas delighted youngsters with a visit.
