A We Are Barnsley Float At The Mayor's Parade?

Monday May 16 2011

Barnsley Council has made a first call for entries for this year's Mayor's Parade which will be held on July 9.
A spokesman said: "The Mayors Parade 2011 sees a welcome return by popular demand for the inclusion of decorated, and in certain circumstances, people carrying floats."
‘Inclusion’ is the theme for this year’s parade and the people of Barnsley have been asked to submit their ideas and designs for a decorated float, the top 15 will receive funding for a flat bed transit sizes van to turn their ideas in a reality.
A spokesman added: "Dig out you crepe paper and costumes and get your creative juices flowing on your school or group’s grand designs. We will happily consider entries hand drawn on A4 paper or digitally produced images. Remember to give your float a name. "
The selection panel will offer a bursary to cover the hire cost of the van for 3 days, to the 15 entries that will make the biggest impact on the day. Entrants will need to provide their own driver.
The deadline for your design submission is Friday 27 May to
The Mayor’s Office
Yorkshire House
30 Shambles Street
S70 2SW

** We want as many people to enter for a float as possible as we believe this parade is a great way to celebrate our town...but we thought it might be nice to get a We Are Barnsley float on there? We are going to put in an application but since WAB is all about you we wondered - what do you think should go on our float??***
