A great day was had by all on Saturday 21 May when local company, Artifaces, was invited by Henry Boot Construction to join in with the fun of this year’s Love Your Local Market event.

Children visiting the town centre popped in to the Semi-Open Market to have a makeover, with princesses being the favourite choice of design. Even the markets office staff and town centre ambassadors joined in, promoting the heart theme around the town centre!

Barnsley Markets’ Treasure Hunt

To celebrate this year’s Love Your Local Market Event, which ran from 17to 28 May 2016, Henry Boot Construction sponsored the main prizes at the Barnsley Markets’ Treasure Hunt. The competition entrants had to find 20 heart signs, which were positioned on various stalls throughout the Semi-Open Market and Market Hall.

The new Mayor, Cllr Linda Burgess, presented the prizes to the lucky winners at a ceremony held on Tuesday 31 May 2016 at the Better Barnsley shop. The first prize, a 40 inch LED TV was won by six year old Alan Roberts, who was thrilled to win the TV for his bedroom. Denon Chan of Barnsley was also delighted to win the Samsung tablet for achieving second place in the competition. Other prizes included hampers and vouchers, which were kindly donated by the market traders.

The Mayor thanked the Barnsley Markets’ office staff for all their hard work in the running of the competition.
