Community Hero of the Year
For more than 14 years, Bronia Warden has helped people to become more active through her Healthy Bones class.
The chair-based exercises to music help strengthen people’s muscles, improve balance and prevent falls and the sessions are open to all including older people, those with learning disabilities and those recovering from illness.
Bronia has been described as a special person who always has a smile on her face.
Upon receiving her award, Bronia said: “I’m so overwhelmed. I don't see what I do as a job. I just look at it as my dad being elderly and I look at what he gets and if I wasn’t there or we didn't have a big family, what would happen?
“It's not just about exercise and falls prevention, it's about making sure I'm always there if they need to talk to me or have got any problems.”
For this award we are looking for someone who has made an outstanding contribution to Barnsley, making our town a better place to live in.
Be it by enhancing the town’s reputation, building bridges between communities or reducing inequality, we want you to nominate the people who have changed Barnsley for the better.
The following points are intended as guidelines only, to help you with your nomination.
- Has someone worked tirelessly for the good of others?
- Have they fought for a better quality of life for residents in the borough?
- Are they voice of the village or district where they live?
- Have they done something to turn your life around or the lives of others?
We welcome direct nominations for this award, and our judges may also put forward those nominated in other categories who, in their opinion, have made exceptional contributions to their community.
Our winner will have made an outstanding difference to the lives of an individual, community or family. If you know someone who has done this against all odds, we want to know about them.

As one of Yorkshire's largest roofing contractors, Fenton and Fenton believe that it is extremely important to always inspect your roof regularly and if necessary, make the needed repairs.
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that you should do a roof inspection at least two times a year, checking the inside and outside of your home.
On the inside look for places where the roof deck is sagging, where dark spots and trails have appeared, signs of water damage or leaking and outside light showing through the roof.
As for the exterior you must always visually inspect your roof for cracked, torn, bald or missing shingles and scan for any lose material or wear. Check for signs of moisture, rot or mold and ensure that all drains are open and allow water to exit.
