members expressed concern at the lack of progress on the bowling green.
Councillor Vodden also reported that an urgent meeting had been arranged

provided if the proposed sale of Brierley Hall for residential development
went through because Brierley was fast becoming one of Barnsley’s biggest
housing estates and that is not acceptable. The Annual General meeting

number in the century club draw for December was 35.
