FREE Halloween-themed events are being provided by Barnsley Council to help families impacted by the cost-of-living crisis.
Pumpkin-carving workshops began on Thursday in Barnsley Market, while craft sessions are planned at Library @ the Lightbox.
Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said: “We are aware that as we head towards the colder months there are immense concerns over the impact of the cost-of-living crisis and energy costs in our communities.
“We are delivering a variety of activities, keeping community at the heart of what we do.”
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."
