The cafes in May Day Green and Market Parade markets have been welcomed into the Barnsley Breastfeeding Welcome Here scheme.
The cafes - May Day Green Market, Market Parade, Paul’s Place, Freddie & Henry’s, Hilton’s, Bailey’s and Kay’s - were presented certificates to mark their membership and signage to display.
The Welcome Here scheme helps to signpost families to places where they are able to feed their babies in welcoming, comfortable and relaxed environments.
Any venue open to the public is invited to sign up to the Welcome Here scheme. On joining, venues receive online training which provides guidance to ensuring a welcoming environment for breastfeeding families. Venues are also listed on an online directory which signposts families to breastfeeding-friendly venues across the borough.
