THE winner of the Voice of Barnsley competition has been revealed - with a landslide vote.

We Are Barnsley teamed up with Barnsley Hospital to find people that talk proper tarn and who wanted to represent the Barnsley accent in a positive way.

We arranged for the winner to be adopted as the ‘official’ voice of Barnsley – it will be the first voice that patients and the public will hear when they call the hospital as part of a welcome message that will go live in March.

It was opened up to your votes and we had over 200 people log their votes - the winner, by a landslide, was local lass Louise Jones.

Congratulations Louise - to hear her doing her interview and script, PRESS PLAY
