CHRISTMAS may seem like a distant memory already . . . but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have some winter fun.

Families in Minehead have been enjoying the town’s Winter Festival which started on Tuesday.

An ice rink and bouncy castle are just two of the activities residents and visitors can enjoy at Wellington Square until Saturday.

Children have also been enjoying a puppet show at the Regal Theatre and dance and sporting events at West Somerset College

This is the town’s second Winter Festival following the success of last year’s event.
