The Birnbeck Regeneration Trust hosted its annual festive fair at the Boulevard United Reformed Church on November 9, where guests enjoyed browsing a wide range of stalls in search of stocking fillers.

A healthy crowd also tucked into tasty sweet treats and had fun chancing their arm on a spin of the tombola.

Among the stallholders were Shane and Debora Pratt of JR Suncatchers, who offered up a range of Christmas trinkets.

Delicious cakes were served by Barbara Petry, Sue Adams and Lesley McCann, while Sammy Aldridge showcased her mum's edible bouquets.

The event raised money to support the trust's efforts to save Weston's decaying Birnbeck Pier.
