A TODDLER from Highbridge has won a competition to name a 10ft tall life-sized toy camel.

Three-year-old Samantha Wilson chose the name ‘Cracker’ for the camel, which formed part of the Christmas displays at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll.

Phil Tyzack, Manager of the garden centre, said: “We’d like to congratulate Samantha on winning the competition. It is a lovely, cuddly camel and we wanted to give children the chance to name it.

“We hope she enjoyed her prize of having breakfast or tea with Father Christmas and his elves.”
