Teens help improve park's bandstand

By helen williams, Hoyland Reporter Friday 8th August 2014

TEENAGERS are brushing up their painting skills to bring Locke Park bandstand back to its best.


The young people are doing the work via Barnsley Football Club as part of the National Citizens' Service (NCS).


The four-week programme runs in the summer for year 11 and 12 students across Barnsley. The football club delivers the scheme locally and there are 165 places available.


The group is due to finish the work today and will then help the Friends of Locke Park raise money on Sunday.
