Shoppers browsed a number of stores in Worle High Street on December 6, while the community centre, in Lawrence Road, hosted its Christmas fair.

Youngsters could get their face painted and have glitter tattoos, while rock painting, tombola and a lucky dip also took place.

Stores also opened late at night to promote independent businesses in the town.

The event was in place of the traditional High Street Christmas fair.
