Hundreds of people enjoyed fairground rides, side-shows and burgers at Nailsea’s May fair.

The May fair is organised by 2nd Nailsea Scouts and the event has raised more than £3,000 for club funds.

Fairground rides, inflatables, stationery engines, motorbikes and a car boot sale were set up in Millennium Park.

Families were also able to try their hand at circus skills.

The Twice Dailies played a slection of Adge Cutler songs and crowds also tucked into food from the barbecue.

Organisers would like to thank everyone who helped set up the event including, everybody who turned up on the day, North Somerset Council, Scotch Horn Leisure Centre, Nailsea Town Council and James Rogers Fun Fair.

The event also provided fundraising opportunities for other local charities who took part on the day.

Money from the fair will be used to help maintain the headquarters and replace some worn out equipment.
