Learners have been to visit the Town Hall to meet the Mayor of Barnsley, Councillor Linda Burgess. The Mayor gave us a tour of the Town Hall and explained how local government works. She showed us key rooms in the building including the Council Chambers and the Mayor’s Parlour. It gave the learners a fantastic insight to the work of the Mayor’s office, local Councillors and democracy. She introduced us to the this years Mayoral theme, ‘best of Barnsley’, which left us all feeling inspired and proud to live in Barnsley. The Mayor made us feel very welcome and answered the many questions the learners had. We would like to publicly thank the Mayor for this opportunity.
