The schools' annual fiesta swept through the village as children paraded from Cherry Grove.

A fun fair at the schools' grounds kept hundreds of people entertained throughout Saturday afternoon.

Yatton and Claverham Against Plastic Group and Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group were among the exhibitors, while food, drinks and games were also available for people to enjoy.

Junior school children also ran an eco-stall making eco-bricks, as more emphasis was placed on environmental issues than ever before.
