YOUTH services and the police have teamed up for a series of special events to entertain youths tonight (November 4).

There will be a band night at Oakwell stadium from 6.30-pm for those aged 13-19. At The Metrodome, free ten pin bowling will be on offer for 11-19 year olds from 4.30 to 9pm and there will be a climbing wall set up in Barnsley interchange from 6pm.

It is part of a campaign to give youths in the town centre something extra to do to discourage them from hanging around the market area.

There's already been regular drop in sessions at the Core where youths are offered craft workshops and tea and coffee.
