AGE UK Barnsley’s latest ‘Take a Seat’ bench has been installed in Darton Park.

The scheme is a partnership effort to place benches in areas which the borough’s elderly population have told Age Friendly Barnsley they’d like to walk around but are wary due to not having anywhere to sit and rest on the way.

Darton West Coun Trevor Cave said: “I visit Darton Park regularly with my dogs and since the new bench was installed I’ve had lots of positive comments from park users about it.

“Lots of people stop and sit for a while during their walk around the new footpath.

“People have been asking for a bench in that location for some time so it’s really good that Age Friendly Barnsley were able to provide one for that site.”
