Residents from different generations enjoyed a range of fun activities on offer at Dearne community centres and libraries.

A group of older people gathered to dance their way to fitness at the Ivanhoe Centre in Conisbrough.

The sessions are aimed at people aged 50 and over and are held every Tuesday from 11.30am to 12.15pm.

Pictured at the session above are Lori Heald, fitness instructor and Lee Walker, helper, with the participants.

Meanwhile, over at Swinton Library, younger people joined their mums and dads to take part in a craft activity session.

Pre-school age boys and girls made cards and hats, with a little help from their parents.
