A BARNSLEY-THEMED van has made its way onto the town’s streets as a refinishing company aim to raise spirits across the borough.
Ross Walsh, 26, works at Elite Refinishing in Mapplewell, the home to the Kes-inspired van - though this isn’t the only van the firm have refurbished this year.
He said: “I thought it would be a good idea to go with a Barnsley theme which is why we ended up choosing Kes - it was painted on the van and it’s received quite a lot of attention ever since.
“We painted it on the van and it was the first time that we’ve done anything like that - we’ve got vans that we’ve painted in different ways but nothing like this.
“It’s received the most recognition out of everything as well, some of the comments we’ve received on our social media pages are absolutely brilliant.”
