Volunteers take part in spring clean of Barnsley streets

Have your say

A group of volunteers teamed up with Barnsley’s Love Where You Live campaign to clear up the streets in their neighbourhood.

Ten Berneslai Homes residents and staff from St Helen’s in Athersley spent a day cleaning up the bushes along Laithes Lane and Wakefield Road.

In just over four hours, the group cleared up over 60 bags worth of waste and cut down branches at the side of the path.

Coun Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesperson for communities, said: “With more events to come we’re already off to a brilliant start.”
