People braved the chilly temperatures of the water as they took part in a paddle for the Marine Lake Enthusiasts (MARLENS).

The event also saw members of Clevedon Canoe Club, Model Boat Club and SUP groups set off donned in twinkly lights.

The night glow, which took place on Saturday, was opened by a lantern procession from Clevedon Pier to the lake, near Salthouse Fields, which was led by the North Somerset Samba Band.

From 5.15pm people took to the water and watched a performance from the Darklyte Fire Collective.

The money raised will go towards the MARLENS work with the lake, including the regular cleans and maintenance.
