Hey Linda,

When's work on the new market starting? you said early this year, late last year, the year before, the year before that, the year before that etc etc,

Barnsley did have a proud market heritage now it's starting to look like an embarrassing flea market in areas.

I bet she doesn't shop there.

Like many others I loved Barnsley's old open market, goods were cheap and it was a great way to shop. Unfortunatley the covered market because of the rents the council charges will never be able to compete with the supermarkets. Go in to the market after 3-30pm and the place is closing down, while busy working people can shop 24 hrs at places like Tesco. Demolish the covered market and give us back our old open market, and keep council meddlers out of it.!!!!
