FAMILIES are invited to take part in a Christmas Trail around a West Somerset village next month, for the chance to win a tasty prize.

The event, organised by the Friends of Exford School, features a trail around the village of Exford - which is located between Minehead and Dulverton.

A circular route will follow the public footpath from The Exmoor Stores, around Coombe Farm, and back to the shop, with the challenge being to find Christmas pictures coloured by children at the school alongside a letter, to form a Christmas word.

Maps and entry forms will be available in The Exmoor Stores, Exford, from December 1 to December 31, and donations can be made in the shop.

Entry forms should then be returned to the shop, and one form will be picked out in the New Year to win the main prize - a pork dinner box donated by Bray Valley Wines, Coombe Farm Partnership and The Exmoor Stores.

Everyone who participates in the trail and donates will received a free sweet (donated by Mole Valley Farmers) from The Exmoor Stores.

For more details, you can contact Serena Colwill via 01643 831237 or 07854 104913.
