A NEW campaign with an aim to unite Barnsley has been launched.

Town Spirit will bring Barnsley Council, partner organisations, businesses, residents and communities together achieve more than ever before and continue to build a brighter future, a better Barnsley.

Made up of eight key themes – Build it, Love it, Achieve it, Change it, Develop it, Protect it, Live it, and Imagine it, the aim of Town Spirit is to tell stories and showcase the ambitions for all of Barnsley’s towns and communities.

Town Spirit will show businesses how the work of the council and other partners fits together – helping to remove the barriers so people can see the links between services they receive.

Diana Terris, Chief Executive of Barnsley Council, said: “Town Spirit gives us a clear way of sharing our work with our communities and residents. It doesn’t show the organisations, teams or structures, just the outcomes of the hard work taking place right across the borough.

“Town Spirit isn’t just to promote council services – that simply wouldn’t work. The only way we’re going to build thriving communities is if we all work together."
