A summer fair has helped a school to raise more than £3,200 for new playground equipment.
The Whiteoak Way Schools Association (WOWSA), which raises money for Hannah More Infants and Grove Juniors in Nailsea put on a fun-packed event with games, treats and demonstrations.
Police community support officers took along one of their police dogs for the children to meet and Hugo Williams and Matt Benbridge from @theGym gave children the chance to try out exercise equipment.
Volunteers ran stalls including a tombola, splat the rat and a lucky wheel giving guests the chance to win a variety of prizes.
Children on Saturday tucked into candyfloss and cakes and enjoyed spending their pocket money on sweets and games.
