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.”
Since 1858, we have been the voice of Barnsley. We believe everyone should have access to the news regardless of their ability to afford it so we made the decision to keep our reporting free online.
With your support, our journalists can continue to do this - journalists like Jack. "I'm Jack, a reporter at the Barnsley Chronicle - It’s important to me to write about what really matters to the people of our community, every day is different and I’ve met and spoken to so many amazing individuals."@jacktolson
