Parents and youngsters gathered at Mexborough Market on Saturday to enjoy a range of attractions as part of a family fun day.

Mexborough magician John Turner wowed youngsters with a range of tricks and balloon sculptures. The event was part of Love Your Local Market Fortnight and further attractions are planned for this coming Saturday. To help mark the celebration, shoppers are also being given the chance to win vouchers to spend on the market. Shoppers can collect a word search from one of the traders and then post completed puzzles in the box outside the market office. The first prize is a £60 voucher, while a £30 voucher will go to the runner-up. The competition ends on Wednesday, May 29, at 4pm and winners will be drawn at random.
