Poor weather forecast puts paid to date for a Playday

An outdoor Playday due to take place at Locke Park in Barnsley tomorrow has been postponed until August 27, from 11am to 3pm, due to a forecast for poor weather.

The council’s Early Childhood Services apologised for inconvenience caused by the delay.

A spokesman for the department, which organised the Playday, said: “We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event.

“We have rescheduled it for Wednesday, August 27, at Locke Park so the families of Barnsley have the opportunity to celebrate Playday.”
