Members of a village scout group came together at the weekend to mark its 100th anniversary.
The 1st Wedmore Scouts was established in October 1919 and it welcomed more than 50 old and current members to mark the centenary on Sunday.
They were treated to four cakes while they were at their den, in Combe Lane, joined by the cubs and the beavers.
Scout leader Bill Belshaw said it was lovely to see everyone and a great occasion.
He said: "The scouts - old and current members - were shown lots of photographs showing the history of the club, some dating back to the 1930s and 1970s.
