Chris encourages people to enter TV, radio star and stroke survivor Chris Tarrant is urging people in Yorkshire and the Humber to enter the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Awards. Chris survived a stroke in 2014 while travelling back from Thailand. He is lending his support for the awards by joining the judging panel for the event. Chris said: “I never thought a stroke could happen to me, I feel unbelievably fortunate to have made a good recovery. Stroke can be devastating but thanks to the Stroke Association there have been developments in treatment and post-stroke support that mean many more people now make better recoveries. Survivors can go on to live full, sometimes extraordinary, lives. “I am delighted to be a judge for the Life After Stroke Awards. These awards have so much

heart, they really celebrate guts, dedication and spirit. Many people recovering from stroke, and the people who support them, are unsung heroes and deserve this chance to shine.” The awards recognise the courage and determination of survivors as they recover after stroke and celebrate the support and given by carers, volunteers and professionals. Nominations for the 2016 Life After Stroke Awards are now open. If you know an inspiring stroke survivor, or person who supports stroke survivors, nominate them for an award today. The Life After Stroke Awards are sponsored by the Toni and Guy Charitable Foundation and Next PLC. The closing date for nominations is April 30. Award winners attend a star-studded ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel on November 16. Find out more, visit www.stroke.org.uk/lasa

Are you a colourful character? CALLING over 60s from Yorkshire, are you living life to the full, redefining retirement and doing anything but acting your age? If so, you could be the North East’s most colourful character. McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, is launching a competition to find and recognise colourful characters — people aged 60+ who believe age is just a number and are determined to make the most of life in retirement with no intention of slowing down. Maybe you still have the

same get-up-and-go as a person half your age? Remain active by taking a regular exercise class or going for a daily jog, are a bit of daredevil and enjoy something more high adrenalin or just have an unusual interest or hobby? Whatever the reason, McCarthy and Stone would love to hear why you think you are a colourful character. The closing date for entries is May 6. One colourful character will be selected from each region by a panel of judges, including TV personality Arlene

Phillips, and will receive a £100 Red Letter Day voucher. Regional winners will then go head-to-head with each other in a public vote on Facebook to find the National Colourful Character for 2016. As well as carrying the title the overall winner will also receive a trip of a lifetime courtesy of Saga Holidays. It’s easy to enter, you can do this online at mccarthyandstone.co.uk Regional finalists will go head to head in June and the national winner will be selected in August.

dining collections and with alternate colours such a creams, greens, browns and blues also available.

Protect kids when they are online

BE SAFE: It is important to teach children about being safe online from an early age.

NECESSARY steps need to be taken to protect children when they are online. Nowadays kids start using the internet at a very young age, but many are not yet equipped to understand the dangers of revealing too much information online. A recent study revealed that of one million people who were victims of online crime, 20 per cent of them said it was their children who had downloaded a virus or malicious software to the parents’ or family computer. Another danger is targeted attacks on children by cyberthieves, who pry on young people because their identities can easily be manipulated. Criminals, for example can combine a child’s national insurance number with a fake date of birth and address to open bank accounts, get credit cars or loans. Here are some tips and tricks parents can implement at home to teach children about internet privacy and safety: ● Lay out some ground rules. You can start by telling

that anything shared once on the internet stays there forever and that nothing is 100 per cent private. ● Tell them to check with you. First tell your child what ‘personal identification’ means. ● Password protection and usage. Children at a young age start creating their own email accounts these days. Although such email websites alert users to choose strong passwords, advise your child on what kind of passwords to choose. ● Curb social media usage. Have a talk with your child and discuss what they should not share on social media, for everything stays forever on the internet. ● Sending messages on IM clients like messenger or Whatsapp is something every teenager does, but they don’t always know that their chats are not 100 per cent private. Therefore, you should advise them never to share personal or bank details or other sensitive information like passwords via messages. ● Share news of personal hacks with them.

● Explain the dangers of free public wi-fi. ● Install a VPN. For ultimate protection install a VPN service on the device they use to encrypt their online communication data. VPN, or a Virtual Private Network, creates a connection tunnel that automatically encrypts all the date coming in and out of your device, and effectively protects anyone using the internet. ● Warn them of game scams. ● The internet is as social as ever with new chat rooms and forums uniting different interest groups are popping up every day. As kids are eager to discuss their interests with peers, it is important to speak to them about sharing one’s private information. ● Email deals are fake and if your kids receive an email about a great offer like a free cell phone or concert tickets, it’s a trick designed to get one to give up personal information.

Research into Parkinson’s disease TWO fifths of people with Parkinson’s in the Yorkshire have felt the need to hide their symptoms or lie about having the condition. The research, released by Parkinson’s UK, has revealed an alarming level of fear around sharing a diagnosis of Parkinson’s, cutting people off from vital support available at a time when many report struggling emotionally to come to terms with their condition. Nationally, those who did feel the need to hide their symptoms reported not wanting people to feel awkward or embarrassed around them, feeling they would be judged, or not feeling like the symptoms were socially acceptable.

There are 127,000 people with Parkinson’s with the UK with an estimated 11,000 affected in Yorkshire. The findings come as almost three in ten people who have told friends, family or colleagues about having Parkinson’s in Yorkshire felt that telling people for the first time they had the condition was like ‘coming out’. The charity is concerned by the findings, which reveal a worrying level of emotional repercussions for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Nearly two fifths of those surveyed in Yorkshire experienced negative emotions in the year following their diagnosis, with the news having the hardest

emotional impact on younger people with Parkinson’s. Many people reported feeling ‘like their world had ended’, ‘like they were grieving’ or ‘like they didn’t know who to turn to’. Positively, people who have shared their diagnosis with their immediate family in Yorkshire reported feeling ‘able to accept they had Parkinson’s’, while over a quarter reported feeling relieved, and 16 per cent say they felt glad they didn’t have to hide their symptoms anymore. Steve Ford, chief executive at Parkinson’s UK said: “No-one should feel alone in dealing with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s. “Too many people are struggling with their diagnosis alone because of fear of what people might think, say or do. “It’s worrying that many people with Parkinson’s, for a wide range of reasons, are not able to access the help they need — and it’s having a devastating impact on their emotional health. “We are determined that each and every person with Parkinson’s is aware of the support available so they can feel equipped to have these difficult conversations. “We know that the right support, whether through family, friends or Parkinson’s UK, is vital for those with the condition, to help them come to terms with their diagnosis and know that they’re not alone. “We are here to help people find the support they need, when they need it.”

Yorkshire is the UK’s most polite county — survey YORKSHIRE is the UK’s most polite county, tea is the favourite British beverage and Prince Harry is the butler of choice according to a survey by Pride of Britain. Ahead of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations this summer, Pride of Britain Hotels has researched what it means to be British in 2016 — from Britain’s most popular figure heads and celebrities to the most polite county and the nation’s favourite sayings. As expected, the Queen is the public figure who best represents Britishness, with 38 per cent of the vote, followed by Hugh Grant, Stephen Fry, Kate Middleton, Dame Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Where politicians are concerned, 13 per cent of Scots believe David Cameron best represents Britishness, as opposed to the East of England where nine per cent believed it was Boris Johnson. More than a third of those surveyed thought that politeness best defined Britishness, followed closely by stiff upper lip, sarcasm and good hospitality. More than a quarter of 55 and overs felt Brits were defined as resilient as opposed to just ten per cent of 25 to 34year-olds. In terms of the politest part of the UK, Yorkshire came out top, followed by Devon, Lancashire, Surrey and Kent. The nation’s love of the British cuppa remains strong, with 42 per cent of Brits preferring tea to any other British drink.

Nearly a fifth of Londoners named cider as their favourite British beverage compared to 14 per cent of the population as a whole. When asked which Royals the nation would most like to serve them for a day, Prince Harry was the clear favourite, winning 26 per cent of the vote. This compared to Prince William, nominated by ten per cent of the population, and Kate Middleton who proved more popular than her husband with 15 per cent of the vote. On to the nation’s favourite sayings, with top billing given to ‘keep calm and carry on’ with 26 per cent of the vote, followed by ‘awful weather’ and ‘jolly good’. Almost a third of those over 55 preferred the phrase ‘mustn’t grumble’ and just over a fifth of respondents in the North East is ‘alright pet’, and 15 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds like to say ‘old chap’. The British public were also asked what they would like to give the Queen as a present for her 90th birthday and corgis, family photographs and flowers all proved to be popular options. Some more unusual suggestions included a ‘Keep Calm I’m The Queen’ t-shirt, a Segway for the long corridors of Buckingham Palace, a homemade dish of Lancashire hotpot and a much deserved day off.

A streaky tan is a bad beauty mistake

LOOK GROOMED: Gel nails are important for a polished look.

A STREAKY tan is deemed the worst beauty sin for women in Yorkshire. New research has revealed that 63 per cent of people believe that a streaky tan is the worst beauty mistake you can make, followed closely by lipstick on your teeth and mascara panda eyes. On the opposite end of the spectrum, women reported good hair as being the most important thing to make a good first impression, with flawless skin and beautifully

applied eye makeup in second and third place. It was also revealed in the research by SensatioNail that we are a nation of beauty hoarders. More than three quarters of women have old cosmetics at home that they never use. The top reasons being they never throw anything away, items go out of fashion and products didn’t live up to their promise. Yorkshire women estimate their makeup bags are worth

an impressive £111. But we also have at least £70 worth of beauty products we never use and we would like to buy more. More than four in ten of Yorkshire women say they would get more massages and pedicures if they had more time or money, just ahead of facials. We are more efficient with how we spend our time though as most women get ready for a big night out within an hour. Some have more time to dedicate to beautifying

and spend up to two hours. Women affirmed a polished look makes an impression in the workplace and even on their emotions. Almost a quarter of women said they paint their nails to give them a more polished and professional look and a further said they painted their nails to feel more confident. When asked about the greatest beauty development of the last decade, gel nails came out on top, followed by waterproof mascara and teeth whitening.

‘We keep quiet about our own problems’ THE Samaritans have revealed that while most of us like to think we’re good listeners, we keep quiet about our own problems, with nearly two-thirds of people in Yorkshire believing they’re good listeners, but less than a fifth feel they can talk when something is on their mind. The figures come as Samaritans launches its ‘We Listen’ campaign, supported by Network Rail and the wider rail industry. The message is that while it’s easy to hide your feelings, when someone really listens, which is what Samaritans volunteers do, you’re more likely to open up and start working through your problems. The message from Samaritans is, ‘we don’t just hear you, we listen’, reassuring callers that dedicated listeners are interested in the real problems they are grappling with. Samaritans CEO Ruth Sutherland said: “Life’s pressures can build, without you even realising, it’s all too easy to turn away, ignore how you’re feeling, and put on a brave face. “But you don’t have to do that with Samaritans, our volunteers make time for you and really listen to you, because simply being listened to can help you put into words what’s really going on in your life and help you find a way through.” Network Rail has been working with Samaritans to raise awareness of the charity’s emotional support services since 2010, along with Britain’s train operating companies and British Transport Police. As well as funding advertising campaigns, the partnership has seen more than 11,500 rail staff trained in listening and confidence skills, enabling them to identify people at risk and help them. In the past year, railway staff may have prevented more than 450 people from harming themselves on the rail network. The awareness raising campaign will be promoted heavily online and across social media, with people invited to explore and share a short film showing the difference between hearing and listening. You can call Samaritans for free any time from any phone on 116 123 (you don’t even need credit and this number won’t show up on your phone bill), email jo@samaritans.org, or visit samaritans.org to find details of your nearest branch. Get on board with our #WeListen campaign by following Samaritans on Twitter @samaritans or Facebook www.facebook.com/samaritanscharity.

More kids wearing second hand clothes MORE children are wearing hand me down clothes now than a generation ago according to a new survey. Almost half hand down all the children’s clothing that is a suitable condition to younger children or friends and 67 per cent of parents say they accept second hand clothes for their kids. This compares with just 50 per cent of parents who say they wore second hand clothes themselves when they were children. The survey suggests that it isn’t only modern day thriftiness that is driving hand me down behaviour, the rise of the ‘eBay generation’ is also having an effect, with 39 per cent of parents in the north admitting to buying children’s clothes second hand and 40 per cent saying they have sold clothes, either online or at a table top sale. Despite the buoyant market for second hand clothing, northern parents still aren’t that good at caring for their clothes. Only a quarter use a stain remover in their wash regularly, compared with a massive 68 per cent who use a fabric conditioner, scoring softness over cleanliness. This may explain why stains mean that over a quarter of parents living in the north of England throw away more than ten items of clothing per child in their first five years of life and 35 per cent throw away a white school shirt at least every six months. A surprising 39 per cent admit to letting their kids go to school, or out for an activity, in stained clothing.

York Dungeon will be more thrilling than ever BIGGER, bolder and more thrilling than ever, The York Dungeon will be re-opening on May 13. Visitors will once again be able to experience the horrible history and frighteningly funny thrills. Those who passed through Parliament Street on April 14 will have spotted a mighty band of ferocious Vikings with their longboat run aground as the flood waters dispersed. Their next stop? The York Dungeon where a new interactive show, the Vengeance of the Vikings, will be unveiled.

Andrew Turner, operations manager at The York Dungeon said: “Bearded, bold and fearless, the Vikings were masters of weaponwielding and famed for their ruthlessness in battle. Our visitors will be able to journey through the revamped Dungeon and will find themselves in the heart of the Viking defences in the middle of a battle, before they experience a very close encounter with Snore Short Sword, Viking soldier and master weapon maker. “They’ll learn all about the torturous techniques employed by

this ruthless race, which was famed for its magnificent stature. Whipping, viper pits and the infamous blood eagling that was enforced on sneaky Saxon invaders, just make up part of what lies in store.” Kate McMullen, head of tourism at Make It York, said: “We’re delighted The York Dungeon is back. “As one of the city’s most popular visitor attractions it has been greatly missed. “The Vikings hold a fascination with visitors from all over the

world, so this new exhibition is sure to be an asset and adds another new reason to visit York in 2016.” The York Dungeon has had a complete overhaul after the flooding from December and it will take you back to the past’s most horrible bits. See, hear, smell and feel the city’s darkest hidden stories as they come to life before your eyes as frighteningly funny characters transport you through time.

Woodward Carpets – excellent, reliable service for almost 17 years

Half of over 50s say home needs repairs

THE Woodward family, owners of Woodward Carpets, have been providing excellent, reliable service to people in Barnsley for almost 17 years. Their busy shop on Barnsley Road at Dodworth stocks what store manager Greg Woodwards describes as “top quality at a good price.” With a range of carpets, vinyl and Karndean flooring on offer, customers will find everything from traditional to modern styles, as well as unusual wood, stone and ceramic designs. A family firm in the traditional sense of the word, the business is run by two generations of the Woodward family. Greg said: “If you visit the shop you will no doubt come across either me, my mum or my dad. My mum works in the showroom, I go out to measure up and my dad still fits carpets along with the two lads we employ - well, I say lads, one of them has been with us for 14 years. “That’s the main thing that keeps people coming back, it’s a good old-fashioned, honest

ALMOST half of over 50s say their home is in need of repairs and some have to borrow money to pay for it, according to research. Up to 45 per cent say their home needs work but one in five over 50s cannot afford to pay for it to be done, a study by The Saga Equity Release Advice Service has revealed. Some people say they will try to fix problems themselves to save money. The study estimates that 66,000 over 50s will take out a loan to pay for central heating repairs and 75,000 will borrow money to repair a leaking roof. Around 120,000 people aged 50 to 59 say they will use their pension to fund repairs to their homes which could reduce their retirement fund. Gutters and roofs most commonly need repairing, but some homes have heating, electrical and plumbing problems which need attention. Alex Edmans, head of retirement at Saga Personal Finance, said: “They say home is where the heart is but it’s not where the heat is if the roof is leaking or the window frames rattle in the wind.”

family business. I’d say that 75 per cent of our business is repeat custom, either from the same people or the children of people that we fitted carpets for years ago.” Woodward Carpets are experts in both domestic and commercial flooring jobs, and will tackle anything from small rooms right up to commercial properties including hotels, shops and offices. Greg said he and the Woodward’s team aim to fit your perfect floor that

will last for years. To make sure they understand your requirements, they offer home visits where they talk through styles before designing your ideal look. With over 25 year’s experience in the flooring trade prior to opening the Dodworth shop in 1999, Greg is confident that Woodward Carpets have the specialist knowledge, eye for design and excellent after-sales service to ensure 100 per cent customer satisfaction. “We can offer an

honest, all-round personal service, where you get value for money,” said Greg, adding: “We know that we are great at what we do and we’re confident people will love it.” For more information visit the showroom at 1 Barnsley Road between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Wednesday and Friday, Thursday from 9am to 1pm and between 1am and 3pm on Saturday.
