Quotes

"Holding the evening in Barnsley has certainly set the bar for our future events and has given us a real challenge, one I am sure the Chamber will rise to next year."
The spokesman added: "It is important that parents or legal guardians of the child understand the implications and responsibilities of home educating – specifically, that the responsibility of education rests with them and there will be no work or tuition provided by the local authority."
"Walk Barnsley was free to join and I would urge other businesses to sign upup to the Walk Barnsley pledge, and watch the difference in their staff as we have ours."
"These would allow us to give our learners hands on experience and help us to engage with the local community."
