Quotes

Ch Supt Brooke said: "The alcohol charter represents a commitment from all One Barnsley members to better understand the impact of alcohol on employees, residents and our communities."
Emma said: "It was a doctor at the hospital who recommended it. He uses it for his own son, but it's still classed as an alternative therapy so the NHS won't fund it."
Simon Thompson, head of employer engagement in careers and engagement at Sheffield Hallam, said: "This internship programme is an excellent example of the Council and both universities working together with local businesses to provide students with rewarding internship opportunities that will allow them to develop their skills and gain valuable work experience."
Mumtaz, another UCU member there, added, "The mood is positive. There's lots of tooting and hooting from cars going past. I think the strategy has to go beyond just a day here and there. I'd like to see the TUC come into the fray too.”"
