Organisers of the 17th Nailsea Community Skate Park Festival were thrilled with the turnout and community spirit on Saturday.

Event organiser Phil Williams said: "The skate park was packed throughout the afternoon without any hint of trouble, a fantastic advert for the skate park and the skatepark community, and perhaps an encouragement to other members of the local community, particularly in Clevedon and Portishead, to look again at the facilities they offer for this passionate section of their community and get behind their plans."

The event included table tennis, a youth hang-out and a bouncy castle.

Phil added: "A huge thanks to the organisers and sponsors who gave time and finances, and supported in practical ways."
