Dog show, music and fairground fun in store at Conisbrough Gala this weekend

A SUMMER fair returns this weekend after taking an unexpected year off — and organisers are determined to come back with a bang.

Conisbrough Summer Gala will take place at the Welfare Field on from 11am on Saturday, with a range of entertainment, stalls and activities on offer.

There will be a charity fun dog show, with an appearance from Rain Rescue’s mascot Frankie Rain (pictured).

Singer Helen Evans and SV Dance Studios will both be performing.

There will be fairground rides for smaller children, while the Ivanhoe Centre will be open for refreshments throughout the day.

Co-organiser Penny Lloyd-Rees said: “It is amazing how many businesses have set up over lockdown and many of them will have stalls, including those with gifts, crafts and homewares.

“We also have a few new community groups, such as Denaby Allotment Group, who will be selling their produce, and the Active Dearne community champions will be attending.

“The library will be there, signing people up to their summer reading challenge, and we have the Clifton Alpacs, who are always a big drawer.”
