Stephanie Peacock, MP for Barnsley East, recently attended the Central Area Council Celebration and Awards Evening.
The Central Area Council covers the five wards of Central, Dodworth, Kingstone, Stairfoot and Worsborough. The awards evening was held to celebrate the achievements of people in those five wards.
The local MP took the opportunity to speak about the importance of young people getting involved in civic and community life, and handed out awards to ‘highly commended’ young people and five Young Volunteer of the Year awards.
She said: “It was great to attend the Central Area Council awards evening to celebrate the achievements of people in Central, Dodworth, Kingstone, Stairfoot and Worsborough wards.
“It’s fantastic to see young people engaging in and actively helping their local community, and it’s important their efforts have been recognised.”
