Children from Greenfield Primary School in Hoyland, which is open to accommodate pupils of keyworkers, have kindly been working hard to create displays to bring colour to the new canteen at The Glass Works, Barnsley.
The children’s creations have been placed on the walls around the canteen to add some character and colour.
The new canteen has been created to ensure social distances at breaks and can hold up to 50 operatives. To facilitate this, a 2m queuing system has been implemented together with a one-way system both outside and inside the facility. Operatives are required to use washing stations upon entering and leaving and each of the canteen’s fixed tables and chairs are 2m apart. The tables also display a useful red and green card system. If the card is green, the operative is assured the table is clean and ready for use. Before the operative leaves the table, they will turn the card over to red to show the table is ready to be cleaned.
Funded by Barnsley Council, The Glass Works project, which includes 26 new retail units, a 13 screen Cineworld, Superbowl UK, seven restaurants and cafes, a new public square and 500-space car park. The first phase included the new Library @the Lightbox and the newly refurbished Barnsley Market. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2021 and will provide a vibrant town centre that is welcoming, safe and accessible for all.
A huge thank you to Greenfield Primary School for their contribution to The Glass Works. We are all in debt to the amazing work the key workers continues’ to do during these challenging times. The artwork is a thank you to them whilst also reinforcing the key safety messages to our workforce.
