Porlock is awash with a wonderful array of festive Santas getting up to all sorts, and all guaranteed to put smiles on faces.

The annual Porlock Santa Festival launched on Friday December 10th with Santas staying in place until the end of the month so visitors and residents alike can enjoy the Santa Trail.

A select panel of village judges have done their rounds and the winners have been announced with the Best Santa of the Year and of the Porlock Newsletter Best Santa cup being The Top Ship with their display entitled ‘Sloe Down Santa’.

Second place was ‘Santa’s Solution’ by The Cottage B&B and third equal were ‘Santa’s Checklist’ by the Spar and ‘Rudolf’s Lie-in’ by Myrtle Cottage B&B.

The Lorna Doone Best Comic Santa cup went to ‘Santa’s Checklist’ by the Spar and the Porlock Visitor Centre Most Festive Santa cup went to ‘Santa’s Starry Night’ by Porlock Pharmacy.

If you haven’t already seen the Santas, pick up a Santa Trail – available in several outlets along the High Street – and enjoy all the imaginative and fun displays until the end of December.
