BARNSLEY Town Hall is to be lit in red throughout November as part of an awareness campaign to encourage people to go online.

The Go On Barnsley - a month long campaign to encourage more people to get online - will launch at Barnsley Central Library on Thursday between 10am and 3pm.

It has been organised by Barnsley Council.

Coun Tim Cheetham said: "Too many people in Barnsley are missing out, either because they don’t know what they’re missing, or because they find the idea of computers and the internet all a bit scary.  Go On Barnsley is the chance for people to try it out, with help."
