The May Fair on the Green was opened by Mike Williamson, the retiring chairman of Winscombe and Sandford Parish Council.

Winscombe Primary School performed a traditional maypole dance, while animal lovers we given the chance to get up close to some feathered fair-goers, courtesy of Avon Owls.

Families lined up to try their luck with the human fruit machine, while other popular stalls included a tombola, wheel of fortune and name the dog.

Cubs and scouts from Winscombe ran a craft stall and there were also fairground rides for thrill-seekers to enjoy.
