THE new town hall gardens and fountains in Barnsley are to get a royal seal of approval.

The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, will officially open the newly-named Barnsley Pals Centenary Square on September 13.

People haven't waited to make full use of the new town centre feature, though, as hundreds have been showing up to play among the 30 weaving water jets.

They're already so popular extra seating has been installed to cope with the numbers.

Will you be heading down to its official opening?

As a valued not supporter of BMBC Councillors Gravy Train drivers. I've decided to go and look at this what could be a jewel in the crown. Having said that there is so many road works trying to get into Barnsley Town centre.. I've decide to wait till Kipper Jackson is elected the new Mayor. That's probably the best time to visit and gain entry into town using the roads.
