The Mendip Christmas Fair took place in Redhill on Saturday and Sunday and exhibitors showed off their creations to the public.

A great variety of items were on sale, including intricate ornaments and beautiful flowers.

The Friends of Children’s Hospice South West did a roaring trade too with their charity Christmas cards sale.

Food dominates many people’s festive season, and there were some sweet treats to enjoy as well as Aldwick Court.

Yara’s Fudge was a popular stall, unsurprisingly, and cakes sold well too.
