Weston's Christmas market still enjoyed large crowds on the weekend despite the stormy weather.

Held at the Winter Gardens, the Christmas Fayre was organised by Laura Poulding and Georgia Pickburnt to 'bring everyone together for some Christmas fun'.

The Winter Gardens event was separate to the partially-cancelled market organised by North Somerset Council at the Italian Gardens. This was due to the yellow weather warning for wind issued for the South West.

The town's Christmas lights switch-on also had to be cancelled.

Festivities continued however, with 'thousands' of people still still enjoying the Christmas fun.

On offer was arts, crafts, fresh produce and a chance to meet Father Christmas.

Stall holders including All Things Rustic, Kimi Design Decoupage and Uncle Paul's Chilli Charity were selling their local produce.
