Residents sign up for scheme

Have your say

training sessions are taking place for Good Neighbours who have signed up to improve community life.

About 60 people have signed up for the Barnsley scheme, which will see them helping out during spells of bad wintry weather.

The ‘Good Neighbour’ volunteers will clear footpaths and minor roads to help keep their communities moving safely.

They will also be provided with a grit mix to spread onto cleared areas if they are not normally serviced by Barnsley Council.
