BARNSLEY Museums have been shortlisted in the prestigious Fantastic for Families awards.
Now in its ninth year, the award is an annual programme open to UK-based cultural organisations who provide opportunities to older or family audiences.
Barnsley Museums were nominated for the audience impact and innovation award, which recognises the achievements of organisations who have demonstrated innovation to reach and make a difference to families in need.
Coun Robert Frost, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture, said: “We are delighted to have been nominated for this award.
“We understand the importance of culture in our communities and how it can have long lasting, positive impacts.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
