Fortune favoured Sheffield residents at a community gala which fell victim to downpours last year.

Memories of the rain were washed away as the sun smiled on Chapeltown Park for the annual summer fair.

Families lapped up the activities on offer in the scorching weather, with a barbecue and ice creams feeding hungry mouths.

A convoy of classic cars and bikes motored into the village for the Chapeltown Cavalcade - a feature which proved a roaring success with hundreds of visitors throughout the day.

Fair-goers voted for the best in show, won by a 1985 Bentley owned by a Chapeltown resident.

Ed Brown, organiser of the cavalcade, said: “We couldn’t have asked for better weather for it. We set off from Stocksbridge in the morning with around 22 vehicles then more joined us in the afternoon. We had lots of people coming through the day.”

Nearby Newton Hall was a hive of activity, with a huge number of local businesses showcasing everything from scrumptious cupcakes to crafts and cards.
