Couples gathered in the tea and coffee room area of Interiors on Saturday afternoon for the ‘From Mexborough With Love’ event.

Musician Alan Wood serenaded visitors sat at candle-lit tables while poet Ian Parks recited original love poems, created by members of the Mexborough Read to Write Group.

The event was organised by the Doncaster-based Right Up Our Street organisation, which promotes arts-themed events across the borough.

Mr Parks, the Right Up Our Street arts development officer for Mexborough, said: “The Mexborough Read to Write group meets at Interiors every Wednesday from 1pm onwards - so it seemed the perfect place to host this event. It was great to see the community get together to enjoy poetry and song.”
