Super Hero Day takes place on Saturday, July 28, and everyone is invited to get involved.

Following the success of last year's event which was attended by circa 2,000 people, the newly established Mexborough Events Committee Inclusive (MECI) have been working hard behind the scenes to put on another fabulous family day in the town.

The Sentinel Squad are supporting again with lots of popular Super Heroes walking around town into shops and cafes with the opportunity of a 'selfie' with your favourite character!

Councillor Sean Gibbons, Chair of MECi said: "This is our second 'Super Hero Day' in Mexborough following the success of last year's inaugural event. The MECi committee have been working hard behind the scenes to put on another fantastic family event in town and it is great that to see so many local residents working so positively together with local businesses, DMBC Stronger Communities & Markets team plus numerous other community partners. We hope that many families join us for a fun packed day in the sunshine."
