THE official mascot for the Football World Cup visited some Wraxall schoolchildren last week.

Coombe Garage Tyres in Southfield Road, Nailsea, hosted the event with Fuleco the Armadillo, who is the mascot for the football tournament in Brazil.

Children from The Downs School were given the chance to pose with Fuleco, whose name combines the Brazilian words for football and ecology.
