Christmas spirit filled Crown Glass Shopping Centre as families tucked into festive treats and browsed more than 30 stalls selling presents, decorations and cards.

Snow machines added a touch of magic to the festivities and the reindeer donkey rides were a huge hit, as always.

Music was provided by Golden Valley Primary School choir, In Accord Choir and the Mangled Wurzels and families also enjoyed dance displays and crafts.

More than 30 stalls were up in the shopping centre and a number of stores also stayed open late.

This year’s fair was organised by Crown Glass Shopping Centre and all the money raised from the event will be donated to Springboard Opportunity Group which supports children with additional needs and disabilities.

Centre Manager Martin Nelmes said: “We are delighted with the turn out on Friday which proves what a great community we have here in Nailsea.

“It was a great family friendly evening with more than 30 stalls and entertainment, we would like to thank all those that attended and donated generously to Springboard Opportunity Group.

“We have started planning for next year’s event which we hope to be bigger better and would welcome any community input and support.”
