Did you work in town factories?

BARNSLEY Council is calling on women who worked in the town’s factories to come forward and share their experiences as part of a new exhibition.

The authority is particularly interested to hear from former employees of the sewing factories, the tennis ball factory and Barnsley Canister Company.

The council are also asking for photos and any objects from the workplace to feature in Experience Barnsley, a museum which will open in the Town Hall in 2012 following a £2.6 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

Anyone who would like to contribute can meet the Experience Barnsley team at the Central Library on Saturday, October 22, between 1 and 4pm.
