Yorkshire Day 1st August 2021 Winner

In anticipation of Yorkshire Day this year we ran a community call out competition asking the local people of Barnsley to share their favourite Yorkshire Saying.

With many responses ranging from variations of ‘It’ll be reet’ and ‘Turn the big light on’ there was a clear stand out winner for the team at Cortonwood Shopping Park.

Lindsay from Barnsley put it perfectly and shared her favourite saying which was; ‘By ‘eck, that’s champion! Tha dunt need Yorkshire Day t’know we’re great’

This favourite Yorkshire saying sits proudly on the Cortonwood website and Facebook page.
