Other attractions included an array of fairground rides, DJs spinning a variety of hits, gardening groups, performing arts shows and displays. Meanwhile sports fans enjoyed watching a demonstration of soccer skills by players from the Doncaster Belles.

Martial arts demonstrations were also popular with the crowds.

Thorne Rural Lions Club member Terry Wilcox, 54, chairman of the show, said: “We will have had about 5000 people through the gates by the end of the weekend which isn’t bad at all.

“There has been about 80 stalls up along with a classic car show, live bands, football skills, a re-enactment and many other great attractions.

“There has been a lot of smiling faces which is what events like this are all about.”
