Almost 1,000 displays were on show on Saturday afternoon at the village hall.

Ann Loader, the event’s chairman and secretary, said about 160 people took part.

She said: “The quality and inventiveness of the exhibits was remarked on by the judges and the displays looked fantastic.

“A hog roast was enjoyed by many on the field and whilst admiring the craft fair in the village hall, tea, vegetarian quiche and delicious cakes could be consumed too.

“The field was filled with stalls and games for the children and the country crafts this year included hedge laying and a tree quiz alongside a display of spinning.

“Partaking of ice creams, cider, beer and Pimm’s completed a wonderful afternoon.”

Portishead Concert Band and The Rock Choir in Nailsea also performed.
