Dear friends,

No Fracking in Barnsley is a new non-partisan campaign, established with the aim of bringing together concerned groups and individuals to oppose fracking in Barnsley. Working on the principle that together we are stronger, the campaign will raise the profile of local opposition.

Evidence is mounting that fracking is harmful to the people and communities that live with this industry. In light of the recent round of licences, which cover Barnsley and the surrounding areas, the government has declared that almost the whole of South Yorkshire is open to be fracked.

The time to act is now! We want to build a vibrant campaign to keep the frackers out of Barnsley, forming an anti-fracking network that shares news and resources, supports our campaigns and each other’s events.

We are appealing to groups from across the political spectrum, in the spirit of friendship and solidarity to join with us.

You can find our website and social media feeds here:




Please follow us and share our news and we will do the same for you. We have lots of plans for campaigning and events in the pipeline and would be delighted if you could join us.

Yours in solidarity,

No Fracking in Barnsley
