The sun shone for the traditional Whit Sunday celebrations held in the grounds of Conisbrough Castle on Sunday May 27.

The event, also known as Pentecost, was organised by Churches together and hundreds of people joined in the fun, with stalls, refreshments, children’s entertainment and a balloon race.
