Shoppers will benefit from Meadowhall’s £60m refurb By Gail Robinson A £60m refurbishment of Meadowhall has started. The first area of Meadowhall to benefit from the extensive makeover will be both levels of The Arcade, from M and S to the central dome. The extensive changes include new balustrades and handrails, redesigned ceiling bulkheads, as well as new seating, lighting and signage. The refurbishment is taking place overnight when the centre is closed to ensure visitors and retailers are unaffected by the works. The refurbishment will create distinct districts within the centre, each with an offer and character of its own. The works will also enable a number of retailers to install

NEW LEASE OF LIFE: Wentworth Woodhouse.

Wentworth Woodhouse given new lease of life By Oliver Dyson

THIS week’s picture of the week was taken by Richard Scott and features snowdrops at Wentworth. If you would like to submit a picture to be considered for picture of the week, you can email it to or alternatively, submit via the Barnsley Chronicle Facebook or Twitter.

WENTWORTH Woodhouse will be given a new lease of life as a tourist attraction thanks to a new deal. The country house, the biggest private home in the country, will be purchased by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust (WWPT) in a £7m deal with the Newbold family, who own the property. A spokesman for SAVE Britain’s Heritage, a campaign group dedicated to supporting Britain’s historic buildings, said: “The long term strategy is for the public to visit and enjoy all the most interesting parts of the property while restoring the others for revenue-earning uses such as events and holiday lets, with business units in the stable block.

“Traditionally a historic house of this size would have required a vast endowment. “This business model will provide a substantial income stream intended to cover both running costs and periodic bouts of repair.” It is hoped the sale will be completed within two to three months. Extensive repairs, costing an estimated £42m, will be phased over ten to 15 years, allowing time for funds to be raised and the work to be carried out while the property is open to the public. An annual Clifford Newbold lecture will be held to mark the work of the Newbold family, who opened the house to the public in 2012, after buying it in 1999.

BARNSLEY Council will write to housing minister Brandon Lewis to express ‘deep concerns’ about the government’s proposed Housing and Planning Bill. The bill, which is being discussed in Parliament, was criticised by councillors at the full council meeting at Barnsley Town Hall last Thursday. If passed, a legal duty will be placed on councils to guarantee the provision of 200,000 ‘starter homes’ on new developments, while a ‘Pay to Stay’ scheme will be implemented for those living in social housing, meaning their rent could rise if their income increases. Concerns about a loss of affordable housing and the sale of ‘high value’ council homes were made by Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesman, who confirmed that a meeting with council leader Sir Steve Houghton, chief executive Diana Terris and local MPs will take place before a letter is sent. He said: “The council notes that the Housing and Planning Bill is currently being debated in Parliament and, if it’s passed, will threaten the provision of affordable houses for rent and purchase.

“It will force high value council homes to be sold on the open market, extend right-to-buy to housing association tenants and completely undermine Section 106 requirements on developers to provide affordable homes. “There is no commitment in this bill that affordable homes will even be replaced like-for-like in Barnsley and while it introduces some welcome measures to get to grips with rogue landlords, it doesn’t help with high rents, poor conditions and it certainly does not help arrest the recent rise in homelessness.” The council will now analyse and report on the likely impact of the forced sale of council homes, the extension of right-tobuy as well as looking at any further likely impacts of the bill on the local area. Coun Sarah Tattershall added: “To potentially deprive residents of a council property - those who can’t afford to buy a home - is unfair. This bill needs to be stopped as it’s fundamentally wrong. “This will undermine localism and we must write to the Secretary of State to voice the council’s concerns about this. It is a serious issue and will directly affect the most vulnerable people in society.”

Barnsley a top feature in Chinese magazine BARNSLEY is one of the top features in a Chinese Christian magazine which is thought to have been seen by millions of people in the Far East. ‘Cosmic Light’ has a tenpage feature on missionary James Hudson Taylor’s early history in Barnsley before he travelled to China. It shows photographs of Hudson Taylor and places across the borough which are significant in his early history in Barnsley, before he moved to China in 1854 and founded the China Inland Mission. There are photographs of Pinfold Steps, near where his grandfather lived, the former Barclays bank on Church Street where he worked and the former chapel on Pinfold Hill, now the Lamproom Theatre. Hudson Taylor’s grandfather was a reed maker in the linen industry and lived in a cottage with his parents at the top of Pinfold Steps. He later had a house built on the corner of Pitt Street and York Street and moved wife Mary and children, including James (Hudson Taylor’s father) there. James married Amelia Hudson, who he met at the Manse Chambers, and the couple moved to 21 Cheapside where their missionary was born. Hudson Taylor later worked at the former Frudd’s Bank on Church Street and preached at Salem Chapel. There are also photos of Emmanuel Church on Huddersfield Road, Tudor

Cottage, Paddock Road, Staincross and Royston Parish Church. The magazine is distributed across China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other countries on the Far East. It is estimated there are between 60 and 100 million Chinese Christians. Colin Wilkinson, 63, a member of Barnsley’s James Hudson Taylor Group, said the magazine was sent to the group by Hudson Taylor’s greatgreat-grandson, Jamie Taylor the fourth. He added: “Barnsley’s fame appears to be spreading around the world. “I don’t know how they got the story, but it is about James Hudson Taylor and his connection to the church, and about the trail and the history in Barnsley.

“It’s featured quite prominently and it’s very interesting.” Hudson Taylor is one of the most celebrated Christian missionaries. After moving there, he adopted Chinese culture, cutting his hair and wearing native Chinese dress. Snapshots from the Chinese magazine. He is revered by Chinese Christians and is popular within their circles, but they know little of his hometown and find it difficult to imagine. Colin, along with fellow group members Fred Thompson and Mike Rossiter, plan to attend a Christian heritage conference later this year which will celebrate and promote historical Christian figures. I Last Sunday Barnsley featured on Songs of Praise for an episode on Chinese Christianity.

Large range of designer frames ITALIAN style can be found at Hoyland’s Premier Eye Care thanks to the launch of new designer ranges at the King Street opticians. Stylish frames from fashion house Bulgari joins the growing list of designers, which includes: Jimmy Choo, Prada and Boss. Premier Eye Care boasts one of the largest collections of designer eyewear in Yorkshire, with an impressive range of sunglasses and contact lens options also stocked. Optical sales advisor at the Hoyland branch, Jackie, said: “We’ve now got Bulgari frames it’s a big name and is hard to find in Barnsley.” The friendly Hoyland practice has long been a stockist of Rayban frames, including a large range of Rayban sunglasses. Prices start from just £99, putting fashionable styles within the reach of most this summer. Jackie, commented: “Obviously, that is cheaper than you will find them anywhere else on the high-street.” But if you would rather be without your glasses, why not take up a free contact lens trial? Try a month’s worth of lenses for free at the King Street store, after receiving a thorough eye test and the right recommendations for you. There is nothing more important than looking after your sight and making sure you get all minor eyerelated problems checked out by a professional. At Premier Eye Care, opticians can carry out a quick and simple health check on every patient,

whether it is in-practice or as part of an at home visit. They have invested a large sum of money in upgrading its equipment throughout the business - including at the King Street branch - to make sure each client has a pleasant, relaxed experience and receives a premier service, everytime. Even though they use state-of-the art equipment, the friendly team at Premier Eye Care Hoyland know that for some, a trip to the opticians can be just as daunting as a visit to the doctor or dentist. This is why highly-trained staff insist clients address them on a first name basis, putting first-time visitors at ease the moment they walk through the door. With this in mind, Premier Eye Care has introduced the Primary

Eyecare Assessment and Referral Scheme (PEARS) to local branches. Instead of assessing minor eye problems in a busy and often clinical hospital environment, optometrists can examine these inpractice. Not only does this speed up the process and save you time no more queuing in hospital corridors - but it also allows you to visit your local eyecare professional and discuss the problem with someone you trust. Clients of any age can be catered for by the experienced team, who offer free eye tests for children under 16, home visits for less-able clients and specialist services for over 60s.

TAKE A STAND: Public back ban on junk food advertising.

Parents back ban on kids’ junk food advertising ... IN Yorkshire, 73 per cent of the public back a ban on junk food advertising before the 9pm TV watershed, according to a new survey published by Cancer Research UK. And 55 per cent support a tax on sugary drinks, which could help tackle the rising childhood obesity epidemic. This new survey shows strong support for the government to act in order to fight childhood obesity, with 81 per cent of Yorkshire people thinking it’s a problem. It also found that 70 per cent of the Yorkshire public support reducing junk food advertising online and 60 per cent support cutting price promotions on junk food. Almost six in ten underestimated the proportion of overweight or obese adults in the UK according to the survey. Being overweight and obese is a major cause of preventable illness and death in the UK, including cancer, type two diabetes, heart disease and stroke. More than one in five children in Yorkshire are overweight or obese when they enter primary school, and alarmingly this increases to one in three in year six. This is why Cancer Research UK is calling on the government to take action to protect children. Nicki Embleton, Cancer Research UK spokesman for Yorkshire, said: “Junk food is everywhere. Children are bombarded by advertising tailored to tempt them with pretty colours and cartoons

which all influence the food they prefer. “At a time when junk food is cheap and packed with extra calories, we need stronger action to help prevent children from choosing these foods. “We want the government to ban junk food adverts on TV before the 9pm watershed, put a tax on sugary drinks and enforce targets for reducing the amount of fat and sugar in food. Reducing obesity rates could save the NHS billions of pounds. And, ultimately, we owe it to future generations to reduce preventable disease caused by being overweight and obese.” Dr Julie Sharp, head of health information at Cancer Research UK, said: “To give children the best chance of a healthy future, we need to make sure there are plenty of healthy options available to them. But this is difficult when they’re exposed to lots of cheap junk food. “Obese children are more likely to be obese as adults, which in turn increases their risk of developing cancer in later life, along with many other health problems. So it’s important that young people are encouraged to eat healthily and keep active and that healthy choices are easy to make. “Obesity is the biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking and is linked to up to ten different types including breast, bowel, and pancreatic cancer.” For more information, visit

Do you suffer with Free microchipping offer bad headaches? Why not try some Pilates? MORE than ten million people in the UK regularly suffer from headaches making it one of our most common health complaints, but did you know Pilates could be your natural saviour? Lynne Robinson, founder of Body Control Pilates and author of Pilates For Life, said: “People forget that Pilates is both mind and body training and even a short Pilates session can help you unwind and relax. This in turn can be helpful with some of the more common types of headache, such as those caused by tension or by poor posture. “As you focus on controlling your alignment, breathing and centring, there’s no time to worry about anything else, your mind clears. This can be enormously beneficial if you suffer from headaches caused by tension and stress. The trick then is to take what you’ve learned in your class and use it whenever you feel a

headache coming on. A few moments of deep breathing can do wonders.” Sometimes headaches can be caused by poor posture. If you sit hunched at your desk all day, your shoulders are rounded, your head is thrust forward, your neck can be overextended. This puts pressure on the area at the base of the skull and top of the neck and can lead to headaches. “I used to suffer from terrible headaches and jaw problems, which I finally discovered were a result of my upper spine being stiff,” added Lynne. “Pilates helped me to mobilise this area, which in turn freed my neck and my headaches disappeared.” Lynne says a variety of popular Pilates exercises can help avoid headaches, but explains that if you suffer from headaches it is advisable to check with your doctor before exercising.

BARNSLEY dog owners can take advantage of a free microchipping event being held today to ensure they don’t fall foul of new law coming into effect later this year. Every dog owner in England will have to microchip their animal from April 6 under plans intended to cut a rise in strays. The microchips are coded with owners’ details, and owners who do not comply could face fines of up to £500. Barnsley Council has teamed up

with Dogs’ Trust to offer a series of free microchipping sessions for dogs, with the next event taking place today (Wednesday) at Cloughfields Community Centre, Hoyland, from 11am. Dogs will be treated on a first come first served basis with the last dog seen at 3pm. The Dogs’ Trust has specified that all dogs must be wearing a collar and lead and have a handler present who is aged 18 or over. All puppies aged up to six months

old must be fully vaccinated and must be carried. Coun Roy Miller, said: “We’ve had high turnouts at previous events which show real commitment from responsible dog owners. “It ensures they are compliant with the upcoming change to the law in and also makes sure that if they do lose their dog, they are quickly reunited with it.” I For more information about the event contact the council’s dog warden on 773743.

Have you stayed in Kirklees? Lottery prize unclaimed HAVE you strayed into the Kirklees area recently and bought a lottery ticket? There is an unclaimed prize of £93,164 and time is running out for the mystery winner to claim it. The ticket matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on September 12, 2015. With just over a month to go before the deadline, National Lottery players are being urged to check and doublecheck their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this life-enhancing prize in time. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 14, 20, 28, 31, 40, 46 and the bonus ball was 44. The lucky ticket-holder only has until March 10. A National Lottery spokesman said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will

come forward at the very last minute to claim the money. “We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing Lotto ticket could be hiding. “This life-enhancing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.” If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lotteryfunded projects across the UK. G Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email

THRILLED: Winner Mat Wright.

Mat bags Halifax Giving Extra Award THE musical director of Barnsley Youth Choir has won an award for helping to transform the lives of young people through singing. Mat Wright is one of 66 Halifax Giving Extra Award winners from across the UK. He was nominated by Yvonne Worsley, a trustee and secretary of Barnsley Youth Choir, who said he had gone above and beyond for the people in his community. Mat coaches almost 300 young people aged 11 to 24 each week across a number of choir groups. The youngsters sing a broad range of music, from classical, pop and folk through to gospel. Having pretty much started the choir from scratch six years ago the youngsters, who previously had little experience of singing, have surpassed expectations and recently won three gold medals in Magdeburg, Germany, as part of the European Championships. The choir now

receives regular requests to perform internationally and has rocked the choral world with their achievements. Many of the young members have come from disadvantaged backgrounds or have disabilities. Through Mat’s dedication and determination the youngsters now have a purpose and ambition and are proud of what they have achieved. In addition to coaching, Mat also helps fundraise for the choir and is actively seeking community support and additional volunteers. As a winner, Mat will each receive £300 in vouchers and will be put forward to be chosen as one of our seven regional winners. Regional winners will be announced by the end of February and will each receive £5,000 to make a further difference in their community.

‘Time to Talk’ day, which aims to end the stigma surrounding mental health and get people talking about what’s troubling them. The housing association provides a variety of mental health support across the region, including its Barnsley Dementia Support Service. Juliann Hall, director of care, health and well-being at SYHA, said: “Mental health doesn’t discriminate against anyone – it can affect all of us, at any point in our lives. “Whether you’re just feeling down, lonely or have a more serious diagnosed condition, we’ve got support available which can help. “The more comfortable we all are talking about mental health, the easier it is for us to spot the signs of potential problems and do something about it.” I To find out about support available in Barnsley visit ental-health.

Pack your case and hit a year-round sunny spot WITH winter still looming and the cold weather taking its toll, many of us are looking to take a break and if you can’t wait to until the summer to have a well earned break then here’s a few places you could get yourself off too. As the recent storms have forced us to batten down the hatches, why not use this time to plan your escape to sunnier climates and book a foreign holiday, there are plenty of places you can jet off to around Europe at a good price. You could pick short-haul destinations like Spain, for a quick, low-cost getaway in the coming months or go for somewhere a bit more expensive and get some higher temperatures. The Canary Islands are a firm favourite all year round for holiday makers who are after their fill of the sunshine. It’s an ideal choice if you are after warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine, with plenty of bustling resorts for you to choose

from on islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. If you are looking for something a bit quieter then go for the lesser known La Palma, its beautiful cove beaches and quaint towns are all extremely laid back and quiet, the perfect place to escape and relax. With its soft, fine black volcanic sand and rich volcanic soil — due to being an ancient volcanic island — there is some stunning countryside making it great for trekking and picturesque walks. If that’s not for you though, then all the other islands have plenty of activities, whether you are going as a couple, with family or with friends, with plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you entertained through the nights. If you are one for sightseeing and tourist fun, then get yourself off to Italy and discover its astounding history and beautiful architecture. Reasonably warm temperatures of around 16 degrees you will be

There are not many other cities

like Rome, an incredible place to explore and holiday with its cobbled streets and remnants of ancient Roman history. Enjoy lots of local cuisine and take in the sites of the Sistine Chapel and the works of Michaelangelo, the Pantheon and of course the Colosseum.

YOU don’t just need to jet off abroad to have a great holiday this spring. There are plenty of places around the UK to have a perfect early holiday, whether you fancy staying in England or venturing to Scotland or Wales. If you fancy Scotland then have a look at the beautiful Aviemore. It would make a great adventure holiday for all the family as there is so much to do. You will find wildlife parks, a mountain railway and outdoor adventure parks where you will get your chance to do things like zip wires, quad biking, climbing wall, archery, clay pigeon-shooting, gorge walking, kayaking and more. There is also miles of beautiful trails for you to walk around and take in the beautiful surroundings, the perfect family break. If you would prefer to head to Wales, then there’s no better place than stunning Pembrokeshire, home to the UK’s only coastal national park. The top place to visit is Tenby with its glorious beach, boat trips and even a dinosaur park — there’s also plenty of

options if you drop on a bit of wet weather. Take a boat and visit the holy island Caldey Island which is just 20 minutes away from Tenby, owned and run by a community of monks, the island is open to visitors in the warmer months and is the perfect spot to relax. Or if you fancy something a bit more adventurous, you could test your bravery on a tour of some of Tenby’s more mysterious corners, hearing spooky tales of all things paranormal, from ghostly pirates to witches and UFOs. If you choose to stay in England then there is no better holiday than Cornwall, a favourite amongst UK holiday makers. Cornwall has breathtaking coastline, family-friendly beaches and attractions like the Eden Project, Land’s End, The Minack open-air theatre and St Michael’s Mount. For older children there’s surfing lessons, while younger kids can play on the beach and do some rock pooling. And let’s not forget the cream teas, pasties, and ice cream, there’s plenty of delicious options for all you foodies out there.

Sticking to a budget when going on holiday is always a good idea HOLIDAYS can be expensive, so it is important that we try and stick to a strict budget, especially if we plan to go on holiday early and take a later one in the summer. Set up yourself a budget for your holiday and think about the things that you need to pay. You will need to save money for travel insurance, holiday clothes, sun creams and other essentials, travel money and of course paying for the holiday itself. Then you will need to think about all the things you will need to spend while you are there including on food and drinks, holiday treats, travel, entertainment and excursions. You don’t miss what you don’t have, get the frame of mind that you are saving like you are paying for a bill and commit to saving a regular sum each month. But be realistic, it is easier to save a smaller sum each month rather than aiming too high and giving up after a couple of months. You could start by saving £1 in your first week and increasing that with each week that goes by. Think about where to stash your savings — you might start with a coin jar, but make sure you transfer your money to a
