Project to remember sporting talents

Have your say

A new project is set to explore the history of Barnsley’s sporting stars.

Michael Dugher, MP for Barnsley East, is leading People’s Sport in Barnsley, which will focus on talent which has emerged from the town and Shaw Lane - a centre for amateur sport since 1864.

The project, funded by Heritage Lottery, aims to establish a collection of sporting memories and artefacts to preserve the sporting history of the site. Local young people and their families will also be invited to take part in activities designed to preserve Barnsley’s sporting heritage.
