Nailsea and Tickenham Football Club put on its Tickly Come Dancing event and more than 300 people turned up to watch the dancers compete for the Tickly Trophy.

Bristol City Football Club legend Louis Carey, West End star Richard Wood and Bristol Hippodrome choreographer Courtney Jackson were on the judging panel which chose Charlie Ashton and Holly Edwards as the winners.

Chairman Bob Gregory said: “This is a great night for the local community, we really appreciate the fantastic support our football club generates and the funds raised go directly back into improving facilities at the club, including going towards the purchase of a new public defibrillator at Fryth Way.

“We will also be installing additional goals with nets on the field next to our main pitch for anybody to use at their leisure. “
