Families took part in an Easter egg hunt, made sand sculptures, painted pottery and more at the Long Ashton Community Centre on Saturday.

The event raised money for Help Bristol's Homeless and people had the chance to win a PS4 console and a hot air balloon ride in a raffle.

Organiser Kate Bolton said: “The day went really well and it had such a community feel about it.

“People enjoyed eating ice cream outside on a warm, sunny day and the children's games run by Sarah Jane did very well.”

The fair attracted more than 30 stalls to the centre in the village and people could also get their face painted, make an Easter bonnet and take part in a chocolate tombola.
