The day started at noon on Saturday and was organised by the Axbridge Sports and Social Club to celebrate the community.

Food and drink stalls there on the day included Hullabaloos Lemonades as well as music from band Sad Ken and entertainment from Faye Ashton and Phobe Mulcahy from the Flashback Theatre in Somerset.

A club spokesman, Pauline Ham, said: “It was a very enjoyable day and the atmosphere was lovely.

“Lots of Axbridge people work together to make this event a success, so a big thank you to them for achieving it again this year.”

“The money we raised from the event last year was put towards new lights for the Christmas tree we have here in December – so any money we make is all invested back into the town and put back into the event.”
