COUNCILLOR Joe Hayward has urged residents and businesses to support the parading troops in Barnsley town centre next month.

A parade of 120 troops from the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment will march through Barnsley town centre on the morning of Thursday July 18.

Accompanied by a military band and a colour party, the parade will start at 10.45am at Churchfield and form up outside the Town Hall for inspection.

"At the freedom parade the mayor will perform a speech and the council will provide a meal in the Town Hall after the troops have been welcomed by townsfolk," said Cllr Hayward.

"Events like freedom parades are integral to morale for our regiments. It’s important we celebrate our troops and that they see thousands of people who have come along to thank them for their work."
