Hundreds of people across the borough flocked to a family-friendly summer fayre in Balby last weekend.

More than 600 people turned out for St Catherine’s House and Woodfield Park’s summer fayre.

Entertainment on offer at the fayre included Punch and Judy show, Birds of Prey, a bouncy castle as well as face-painting, arts, crafts, a range of stalls and a live singing band.

The event was organised by Flourish Enterprises, who are a newly launched social enterprise supported by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).

They provide work and vocational opportunities to people with mental health needs and learning disabilities who need support to get back into education or employment.

Lisa Hudson, of St Catherine’s House, which is part of Flourish Enterprises, said: “We had fabulous weather and there was a great atmosphere. Thanks to everyone for coming along.”
