THE streets of Wedmore thronged with people as hundreds visited the village's historic street fair on July 2.

The fair originated from the 13th century, when King Henry III granted a charter allowing a market to be held in the village annually, a tradition revived 30 years ago.

Fair-goers, some of whom were dressed as pirates, were treated to dancing by schoolchildren, a pig roast, and a variety of stalls, while youngsters were delighted by face-painting, games and competitions.
