Santa Claus took a break from his busy schedule to visit children in a Somerset park this weekend.

Youngsters from Burnham and Highbridge had a treat on Saturday as Santa landed his sleigh and reindeers in the Green Flag award-winning Apex Park and transformed the information office into a grotto.

More than 120 children queued to meet the famous man in the red suit and tell him which gift they dreamed of finding under their tree on Christmas Day.

The event was thrown by the Friends of Apex Park and Sedgemoor District Council and ran throughout the day.

A council spokesman told the Mercury: “It was a great success and the children were very excited to see Santa.

“Thanks go to all the Friends who helped make it special for the children.”

Santa set off from the park to carry on with his preparations back at the North Pole for the big day later this month.
