The Bristol Camper Company sponsored a Volkswagen cruise to the village on October 29.

They provided hot refreshments at their Langford base before members of the Vee Dub Family events team convoyed out to The Failand Inn, in Clevedon Road, where drivers enjoyed a chilli supper and live music from The Sirens.
