Midsomer Norton teenagers lay on a big day
A group of Midsomer Norton teenagers pooled their talents to organise a family fun day at the town's cricket ground.
The teenagers were all volunteers taking part in the National Citizen Service programme and had organised the event as a social action project.
The team laid on a host of activities for the day with dance acts, dancers from the Susan Hill School of Dance, martial arts exponents from Jamie Woodlands Martial Arts Blackbelt Academy, and music from the Sam Evans Band and Jaycee.
Adding to the mix was entertainment such as face painting and a bouncy castle.

Georgia Redmond, a team member, said that the organisation had been a lot of work but they were pleased with the event.
She said: "We had a last minute panic when two of our dance acts pulled out two days before the event but we got there."
The fun day raised £267 which will be split between the RSPCA, Cancer Research, Alzheimer's Society and the Children's Society.
The group graduate this weekend when the programme ends.
During the summer they have taken part in team building activities in Wales and shadowed staff at a hotel in Cheltenham.
Georgia said: "We have learned a lot through the programme. We were all very shy before taking part and this has helped us improve our confidence."
As well as Georgia, the team included Abi Sutton, Chloe Dando, Ellie Sykes, John Rowe, Kyle McPhee, Jasmine Sparey and Shelby Noel.
