AROUND TOWN


O


to the May/June edition of Aroundtown Magazine.. Dear Reader


Welcome


ne of the benefits of our job is we get the chance to meet inspirational people that frame our local


communities. In this issue we share with you some of the wonderful volunteers, who each give their time to a cause close to their heart.


One such group was the team of volunteers at


Wortley Top Forge who spend hours painstakingly restoring the former iron forge out of sheer passion for our industrial past. I had the pleasure of embarking on one of their fascinating guided tours, topped off with a ride on their miniature steam railway.


On another historical note, we spotlight the charming village of Mapplewell, which has recently been put on the map with the Tour de Yorkshire passing through. We have taken a step back in time to look at an industry of yesteryear.


We visited Barnsley town centre and it was fantastic to see the investment happening right now. With the development of the markets and the impending opening of the spectacular new library, it was wonderful to see the regeneration which is helping to encourage people to visit the town.


Once again, we have some wonderful summer events happening in our region with everything from family festivals to some extraordinary exhibitions.


We would like to thank you, our readers, for continuing to pick up your copy of Aroundtown. We hope you will be further inspired to support local businesses and events. As we spring into summer, let’s hope for an abundance of sunshine and opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the wonders of our region.


Happy reading! Cheryl and the team x www.aroundtownmagazine.co.uk
