A SERIES of one off markets will come to Wombwell High Street this year.

Markets based around Easter, home and garden, fashion and Christmas are all planned by the Wombwell Ward Alliance alongside Barnsley Council markets officers.

Coun Robert Frost, chair of the alliance, said: "The one off markets will be on Wednesdays so as not to disrupt the normal markets.

"It is all about getting more people into Wombwell, and in turn they will spend more time on the High Street in the shops and cafes."

The first of the new markets will be held on April 1, with the theme of Easter and Craft.
