The Parish of Silkstone and Silkstone Common has been twinned with the French Commune of St. Florent des Bois since 1991 and over the years many exchange visits have taken place. This year a group of thirty-five visitors led by M. Jean-Louis Batiot, Maire de St. Florent attended a reception in Barnsley Town Hall, hosted by the Mayor Cllr. Ken Richardson. Afterwards they enjoyed a guided tour of the new ‘Experience Barnsley’ Museum recently opened in the Town Hall.
