Shipham’s annual Christmas market and food hall was attended by more than 450 people from all across Somerset.

There were festive stalls filled with local crafts, jewellery and plenty of activities for children.

One of the highlights this year was a performance by children from Cheddar Voices singing group.

Organiser Becky Downton said: “It really has been one of the best events we have held this year.

“All funds raised go towards special projects at Shipham first and preschool, so not only is it a wonderful afternoon for the community, the children benefit as well.

“We have had fantastic support from businesses including Ian Studley who sponsored the event, and Fountain Forestry who donated the wonderful Christmas tree.”
