The Mendip Morris Men entertained Congresbury villagers with a festive performance on Boxing Day.

The dance group, which formed in 1956, travels around North Somerset performing traditional Cotswold movements.

They are sometimes joined by three other Morris characters – the fool, the green man and the manic spotted horse.

The Morris Men visited the Plough Inn, in High Street, and performed for villagers throughout the afternoon.

People in Congresbury also enjoyed a walk through the village and its surrounding countryside on the morning of Boxing Day, which finished in time for the Plough performance.
