The sun shone for the annual South Kirkby and Moorthorpe civic parade at the weekend.

Around 2,000 people turned out to enjoy the civic Sunday event.

Organiser Diane Hickes, deputy clerk at the town council, said it was a day to remember.

She said: “It was absolutely fantastic. The weather was with us, which always helps.

“It was a real success - one of the best we’ve had for a number of years and that’s probably because of the weather.”

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service band led the parade from Exchange Street car park in South Elmsall where mayors and mayoresses from across the district turned up to show their support.

South Kirkby’s mayor, Coun John Taylor, and the mayoress Karen Taylor, were joined by their counterparts from Featherstone, Normanton, Morley and South Elmsall.

Junior football and cricket teams also took part in the march along with the Royal British Legion.

The parade walked to All Saints’ Church in South Kirkby where a service was held.

Afterwards everyone made their way to the Recreation Ground, on Barnsley Road, South Kirkby, where horse and pony and dog shows were held.
