Winscombe Community Association put on the Christmas gathering to enable people to pick up gifts for loved ones and enjoy some crafts and treats with friends.

Children were able to post their Christmas lists and tell Santa what presents they are hoping for under the tree.

Cards, wreaths and decorations were on sale and Lolo Dee-Shapland sold her festive shopping bags to raise money for Cardiac Risk in the Young.

Scores of villagers visited the event, which was held at Winscombe Community Centre.
