1) Family Fun Day, Sandall Park
Enjoy hook-a-duck, a dog show, bouncy castle, cakes, raffles, craft stalls, kids rides, face painting, helium balloons, food vans selling sweet and savoury treats, bric-a-brac, and much more this Sunday July 15, at Sandall Park.
The charity family fun day will raise funds for Lowland Rescue, when it kicks off at 12pm, running until 4pm.

The sessions costs just £1 per person - for adults, toddlers and babies - and includes unlimited hot drinks and squash. There will also be cake for the adults, and healthy snacks for the kids. Open to children of any age, there will be plenty of toys to play with whilst parents chat over a cuppa. Drop in, all welcome.
Mexborough Athletics Club, Tuesday evenings, 6.30pm
Calling all Dearne Valley mums and friends, of all fitness levels and running abilities, to a new evening session designed to encourage and inspire.
Session leader Fleur Holland said: “We really are a club like no other. The support is what makes us unique; nobody ever gets left behind, even the faster runners turn around and come back to make sure we all finish together. We have members who come to us having never run before, gain confidence, and go on to run half and full marathons. Make new friends and let us help you become the best version of yourself.”
