Community music kept Clapham’s Street Fair moving with a lively beat in the sunshine on Saturday.

Carnival-type performances from the Dales Jam, a group of jazz musicians from all over Craven, and a cappella singing by Settle Voices were both new features at the 34th annual event.

There were also bell-ringing demonstrations and organ recitals at the church.

Although the fair is the main fundraiser for St James’ Church, who ran ten of the stalls, another 14 charities and organisations were represented.

Away from the stalls and street entertainment, there was a rare breeds corner, a display of classic cars on the car park, while the Cave Rescue Organisation showcased its activities outside its depot.

Co-ordinator Sue Mann, said: “There was a great community spirit at this year’s event and it made for a good humoured day, which everyone enjoyed, while raising money for a lot of different causes.”
