A street fair will be held in Worle High Street this winter for the first time in about 11 years.

The Worle Traders’ Association has organised the Christmas fair to take place on December 8 from 6-10pm.

The road will be closed and packed with stalls, food vendors and entertainment. Shops will also be open late on the day.

Organiser Mike Skidmore said: “It has been quite a while since we have arranged a street fair, so hopefully this event goes to plan and we can make it an annual event.

“A lot of areas have late-night shopping, but not in Worle.”

Stalls will also be in the community centre, in Lawrence Road, and the RNLI and Worle Lions Club will be collecting on the evening.

Members of the Lions club will be marshalling the event.

Mike said: “We need people to go along so we can hold events in the future.

“If this takes off, we might also do one in the summer.”
