Disappointment and confusion as Civic Trust’s calendar is scrapped By Katia Harston

ARTIST: Frank Ayton at the latest Civic exhibition. Picture: Wes Hobson. PD075915

The Fireplace www.fireplacepenistone.co.uk

A CALENDAR being planned by the Barnsley Civic Trust has been abandoned amid claims by a contributor that entries were deemed ‘not worthy enough’. Over the summer local artists were invited to submit artwork to be included in the calendar on the theme of ‘Show your Barnsley’. From a short list, 13 were to be selected and all the entries were to to be exhibited at the Civic. The calendar has now been shelved and there appears to be some confusion as to why. Contributor Frank Ayton claims it was torpedoed because one of the judges didn’t think the entries good enough but the trust’s secretary told the Chronicle it was because there were not enough entries and the chairman put it down to judges not being able to agree on final selections. Mr Ayton, 79, of Kensington Road, Barnsley, said it was a ‘storm in a teacup’ but the decision to abandon the calendar had left him and some of the other contributing artists disappointed.

■ Calendar given boot amid rumours about lack of entries In retaliation Mr Ayton put together a notice to be displayed with the 24 paintings — now on display at the Civic — explaining how they had been produced with the intention for 12 to be used in the calendar. He sent a copy of the notice to the Chronicle, which reads: “Two of the judges made their 12 selections but the third, a member of the Barnsley Civic Trust Executive Committee, made no selections and instead said he did not think them worthy of being in a calendar.” Mr Ayton added: “I don’t know if the judge didn’t like the idea of the paintings or the paintings themselves. The painters have been told and there is disappointment from a couple.” Trust secretary Allan Parks, who would not comment on whether entries were snubbed due to their quality, said: “We wanted 12 pictures depicting Barnsley life and only had eight artists’ submissions.

There was not enough choice to make a calendar for this year and we couldn’t extend the competition. “It was about having 12 artists and we didn’t want to over feature any one artist, that’s not really fair. “It was not intended to put anyone’s nose out of joint and we are very grateful for the artists who wanted to participate. “It’s great they took part and if they are willing, if the executive committee take the decision, it is proposed we hold it over to next year.” Owen Gleadall, chairman of the Civic Trust said: “Two things have happened. “The first thing is that the person responsible for the calendar has resigned from the Civic Trust. “The second thing is, I understand the three people responsible for choosing the pictures couldn’t agree on 12 for the calendar. “As a result, it has gone on for so long we can’t produce one in time.” Advertiser’s Announcement

STRAY of the WEEK

Barnsley Independent

GLANCING back

Fear Barnsley was losing its shopping appeal By Ian Thompson THE success of Meadowhall and Wakefield led to worries about Barnsley’s contracting shopping centre. A solution to the problem and what was going wrong was outlined in a candid report to the council at the end of 1997. A Government inspector gave his backing to the building of a superstore on Westway. His report called for the rejection of plans to provide shopping sites at Dodworth, Bleachcroft Way at Stairfoot, Old Mill Lane and Wakefield Road. The inspector concluded that the town centre needs reviving

NEEDING LOVE: Nanook. THIS week’s Stray of the Week is Nanook from Royston Animal Welfare (RAW). Nanook is a stunning pure white lady of six-years-old and is a bit shy as she is upset after leaving her old home. She is very used to living with other cats, but wouldn’t like to share her home with a dog. Sharon Whittaker, from RAW, said: “She needs a home with a patient new owner who is willing to give her the time she needs to adjust. Time is all that is needed for this beauty to come out of her shell and show her true colours.” For more information or to offer Nanook a home, leave a message and phone number on 298271, or email cats@roystonanimalwelfare.org If you're looking to adopt a rescue dog or cat, visit the RAW website at www.roystonanimalwelfare.org/rescue for details of all the animals currently in need of a loving home.

because of a decrease in food retail floorspace through store closures. The Pioneer Store on Peel Street — the only specialist food store in the shopping centre at the time — was falling behind competition. The inspector said: “Its character and operation are not of the highest quality. Its lines are limited and its car parking facilities are uninviting. “The store is patently undertrading — in stark contrast to Asda which is obviously on the point of over-trading. “Even after a sharp decline in competition in the food sector in the town centre, trade continues

to leak from the town centre into competing locations. “The Pioneer turnover has slumped dramatically in recent years from £19.7m to £11.4m. “It is now in the second division, falling behind Tesco and Asda in several key indicators including turnover and number of lines. “I do not regard it as serving any kind of anchor role in the town centre. “Proposals have been out forward to extend the store but the question raised immediately is: why was this not done before? “The existing food retailing provision in the town centre is patently not fulfilling its true potential.”

The Pioneer’s owners, Co-operative Retail Services, said the shop needed to be modernised and that there were plans to improve it. The loyalty of most of the regular customers had led to a continued rise in spending. This was despite there being fewer shoppers in Peel Street. The Government inspector’s remarks came in a report into a council development plan. ■ Today, the Pioneer Store on Peel Street has been replaced by a branch of Quality Save and, next door there is a Lidl supermarket. A Morrisons was also built off Westway.

PASSION: The Hurriers Tony Wright and Sam Horton. Picture by Ian Parker.

Live music helps feed hungry mouths A WEEKEND of live music has done more for Barnsley than just provide sounds for the soul — it has helped feed hungry mouths. The Barnsley leg of We Shall Overcome, organised by Jason White, Chris Scarfe and Chris Sammon, was held over a weekend at The Polish Club this month which saw more than 35 acts play over two stages. It was held to raise funds for families directly affected by government welfare cuts, collecting cash and donations for food banks in Barnsley. As well as the three day event at The Polish Club, there were also collections at gigs in Worsbrough and Hoyland Common and at an art exhibition and auction in town. Jason said: “Music only played a small part in it. Though our line-up was considered one of the best in the country, we also incorporated art, sculpture, photography, poetry and speeches. “We have so far raised more than £1,750 and about a bath tub full of food donations too. “There was a real sense of community over the weekend, with many inspirational stories, such as the elderly widow who

spent her scratch card winnings on food after hearing about the event, or the young children that used their pocket money to buy badges because they didn’t want to think that other children and families were going hungry. “We have given a donation to Barnsley Churches Drop-in Project, based in the town centre. They’re currently feeding about 98 people a day. They not only provide hot meals but also clothing, tents and bedding to both individuals and families. “Who would have though that in 2015, we’d have to have a national whip-round for those in need?” Other than the money raised and good will shown, Jason said the event showed a community pulling together and ‘solidarity at it’s best’. “Who can believe that we still live in an age where local residents have to go to food banks or soup kitchens to feed themselves. As long as this still happens, then We Shall Overcome will happen too. “This year it was We Shall Overcome weekend, and next year it will be We Shall Overcome Week, from October 2 — 9.”

Dream of owning your own home? Right to Buy could open the door for you The advisers are available from Monday to Friday, 8am until 6pm. You can phone, email or chat online. What to do next If you decide that home ownership is the right choice for you, and you want to find out more about Right to Buy, have a look at our website or speak to one of our advisers. If you decide to go ahead you will need to fill in the application form and take the process forward with your landlord.

Right to Buy is the scheme that helps eligible council and housing association tenants to buy their home at a discount on the market value.

Since discounts were increased in 2012, over 35,000 people in England have become homeowners through the Right to Buy scheme. Could this be the right time for you – or somebody you know – to join them? You can get a maximum of 70% off the price of your home – up to a cash value of £77,900, or £103,900 in London. Each year this discount increases by the rate of inflation. Recent changes in eligibility mean you now only need to be a secure council tenant for three years instead of five before you can apply to buy your home. So now could be the ideal time to take that next step. Buying your home is a lifechanging decision and a commitment you shouldn’t make without seeking expert impartial advice. First you need to find out whether you’re eligible and if you can afford it. Who qualifies for the Right to Buy? If you’re a tenant and can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions, then you are likely to be eligible to buy your current home through Right to Buy: • Are you currently a council tenant, or were you living in your home when the council transferred it to another landlord (usually a housing association)? • Have you been a council or housing association tenant for 3 years or more? • Can you confirm that you do not live in sheltered housing or other housing designed for elderly or disabled people? Tenants also need to be free from legal problems with debt or outstanding possession orders, and your home mustn’t be due to be demolished. The government has plans to extend Right to Buy. If you’re a housing association tenant and currently not eligible for Right to Buy you can sign up to receive updates on the scheme by visiting our Right to Buy website. You can also look at other government schemes that might help you on www.ownyourhome.gov.uk.

How much does it cost? Home ownership brings many benefits such as freedom to make changes, a sense of pride and an investment for the future. But it’s not the right choice for everyone and one of the biggest questions to answer is ‘Can I afford it?’ When you buy a home you need to budget for one-off costs and ongoing costs. And you need to allow for your finances to change in the future. The one-off costs could include stamp duty, professional fees for a survey, conveyancing and other legal costs. The ongoing costs include mortgage or loan repayments, repairs and maintenance. If the property is leasehold (usually a flat) there will be an annual service charge and ground rent. There is plenty of guidance available to help you add up what this means for you. Working out your budget We have an easy-to-use calculator on our website to help you work out what discount you could get and if you can afford to buy. The Money Advice Service offers free, impartial advice on budgeting, mortgages and other financial matters. You can contact them on 0300 500 5000 or go to their website at www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk. With the Government’s official Right to Buy adviser service, you can get free and impartial advice as well as the help and support you need throughout the process of buying your home from filling in the application form to completing your purchase – if you decide it’s the right choice for you. The advisers can provide information on finding a mortgage, appointing a solicitor and arranging a survey. If you are midway through buying and have a problem, get in touch with the adviser service and they can help you.

Layer comfy jumper over your little black dress to provide the ultimate casual and cosy look, you get double fashion and festive points if you wear a Christmas jumper.

Your House for Winter

ADVERTISING FEATURE

It pays to get your heating checked out WITH PICS: BC Images, Laura’s folder, Warm.jpg SUMMER is now long gone and with the year racing ahead the cold weather has quickly arrived. All we want to do when we get home from work is get wrapped up with a cup of tea and turn up the heating. But how can we warm our homes without racking up a huge heating bill. Start off by giving your heating system a service. All central heating boilers should be serviced and safety checked at least once a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Older boilers are far less energy efficient than newer ones, so why not consider an upgrade. According to the Energy Save Trust, a new boiler can save you £305 in heating bills. Make sure you check all of your radiators are working to their full potential. If

a radiator is warm at the bottom but cool at the top it could mean there is air in the system, which means they may require bleeding to reach their maximum efficiency. It may sound silly but letterboxes are really draughty, which can lead to cold hallways and a potential increase in fuel bills. Install a letter box draught excluder that fits onto the inside of your front door is an inexpensive easy DIY job. Insulating your loft is a simple and effective way to reduce energy waste and lower your heating bills. All new homes are fitted with loft insulation that meets the latest building regulations of 11ins, but if you are in an older property you may want to consider a top up. Your thermostat should typically be set between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius, but by installing

thermostatic radiator valves you can set different temperatures in different rooms, according to individual preference. These can be easily fitted to existing radiators. Seven to 12 per cent of a home’s heat escapes through windows and doors. Worn and torn weather-stripping around these frames let in drafts and cold air, prompting you to turn up your heating. These need replacing every new years, so if you haven’t done it for a while or you’ve never replaced them then fit new strips to keep in the warm air. A good way to prevent unnecessary heat loss from radiators, especially if they are attached to external walls, is to use heat reflective aluminium foil behind the radiator. This prevents the heat from disappearing through the wall by reflecting it back into the room.

COSY: Keep warm this winter. It’s important to let the sunlight in throughout the day, using as much natural and free heat as possible. Leave your curtains open all day and as soon as dusk falls, close them to keep the heat inside. Cover bare floorboards as floors account for as much as ten per cent of

heat loss if they are not insulated. If you have wooden flooring put down rugs and blankets to keep in the heat and keep your feet warm. If there are cracks and gaps in the floor, squirt in some filler to prevent any heat loss.

One in ten homes aren’t ready for colder weather RESCUE PACKAGE: Yorkshire Wildlife Trust launch a rescue package for hedgehogs across the region.

Why hedgehogs are in deep trouble HEDGEHOGS are in deep trouble – they have declined by 30 per cent in the last ten years and there are now thought to be fewer than one million left in the UK. Disconnected habitats and dwindling food resources are at the root of the issues facing hedgehogs across the UK, and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust hopes to ensure this beloved endemic mammal finds a stronghold in Yorkshire with the help of their supporters. They have launched a new appeal

especially for hedgehogs in Yorkshire. Donations will be used to enable them to lobby against the use of harmful chemicals which is hampering insect populations that hedgehogs rely so heavily on, facilitate their work with land owners, councils and developers to promote suitable habitats for hedgehogs across Yorkshire, and inspire and engage families across Yorkshire to ensure their gardens are hedgehogfriendly and most importantly, connected to one another.

Across Yorkshire there are a number of events you can join to learn more about Yorkshire’s wonderful hedgehogs. For some events you will have the opportunity to meet rescued hedgehogs and hear their stories, for others you will help to build vital winter refuges for hedgehogs and other small mammals. ● To make a donation or find out more about the Trust’s hedgehog appeal visit www.ywt.org.uk/hedgehog

ONE in ten homes in Barnsley aren’t yet ready for the colder months, according to new research in the town by British Gas. Ten per cent of householders admitted to being unprepared, despite the fact that more than half of the town’s residents believe the onset of winter is already underway. One quarter of Barnsley families say they dream of a draught-free home, but admit they are not taking steps to prepare for winter. The British Gas survey revealed that only 13 per cent of the town’s population plan on ensuring their home is fully insulated. Yet nearly half of those surveyed said they would opt for a thicker duvet, while 48 per cent will be

revisiting their winter wardrobe to find warmer clothes. Barnsley residents told researchers their top tip for keeping warm in winter was to wear an extra layer. Other popular options to fight off the chill included snuggling under a blanket and treating themselves to a hot drink. Very few people had considered making home improvements as an option to keep their family warmer. Just seven per cent said they would think of insulation to keep warm, even though more than half of those surveyed said feeling warm and cosy was what makes a house a home. Thousands of households in Barnsley could be

missing out on a warmer home and big savings from a government-backed scheme that provides free cavity wall and loft insulation, through British Gas. The survey in the town showed that people underestimated the year-on-year savings by £100. Less than a fifth of residents correctly judged they could be saving £160 off their energy bills after cavity wall insulation, while a third were on the money with their estimate that loft insulation could bring a saving of £140. British Gas research also showed that 67 per cent of people were unaware that many people can get financial help to replace their gas boiler, to help keep them warm and to save on bills. A new, efficient gas boiler can lower household energy bills. Jonathan George, of British Gas, said: “People in Barnsley will be wrapping up this winter but it’s clear many don’t realise that home improvements, such as insulation, have a bigger impact. They could save as much as £160 from cavity wall insulation and £140 from loft insulation. “It’s not too late for families in Barnsley to think about insulating their homes so they can keep warm this winter, and perhaps to get financial help with that. “We’re holding events throughout October and November to show people how to be winter ready, and we’ll be offering insulation for free to all those who qualify.” The government-backed insulation scheme provides cavity wall and loft insulation to eligible homes. Barnsley residents will be able to meet energy experts and discuss their options at Ridings Shopping Centre on October 30 and 31. As well as making savings and ensuring homes are as protected and insulated as possible, many charities urge people of all ages, but especially the elderly, to take sensible steps to keep their bodies as well as their homes warm during the winter months. This includes consuming hot food and drinks, wearing extra layers of clothing and trying to keep moving as much as possible. Residents are also urged to keep an eye on potentially vulnerable neighbours. ■ To find out more about the scheme, visit www.britishgas.co.uk/winte rready.co.uk

Classic film Calendar Girls gets a new lease of life in Gary and Tim’s musical ... By Laura Rowley WHEN it comes to writing popular songs Gary Barlow has few equals with 50 million records sold and still counting. His mate Tim Firth is a childhood friend who hit the jackpot when he wrote the film and the play of The Calendar Girls. For the past two years they have been collaborating on a musical version of that inspiring story of the 12 members of the Rylstone and District Women’s Institute in Yorkshire who took off their clothes to produce an alternative calendar in memory of a friend, which became a worldwide sensation and made lots of money for cancer research. At this stage, the idea of turning Calendar Girls into a musical was far from Tim’s mind, indeed he thought,

that after the play and the film, there was little a musical adaptation could add to the story. But then he began to think about it, he said: “Perhaps these songs could become special moments that you achieve in a musical that you can’t achieve in a play, where the character actually sits and inhabits their own thoughts and we share those thoughts.” He then began to think that these songs could be linked with the story of Calendar Girls, and so the idea of Calendar Girls the Musical was born. The dynamic of Tim and Gary’s collaboration was unusual. Tim would send Gary a line indicating an aspect of the woman’s character such as ‘so I’ve had some work done’, or a title such as ‘Mrs Conventional’, or an anthem to Yorkshire, and Gary would

set about writing a three minute song about that. The result is a musical score that is a patchwork quilt of songs that incorporate different bits of different songs as well as both of Tim’s and Gary’s lyrics. For Tim, though, the additional challenge was to make the musical a fresh take on the original story. Although, in Tim’s estimation, he’s changed 90 per cent of the story, the essential honesty must remain, he said: “Every so often the daughter and son of John — the cancer victim who inspired the calendar — turn up and it’s always a kicker, and you think yeah that’s someone’s dad you’re dealing with here, it’s not just a character in your musical, this is a living issue for those people.” They took the production to Burnsall Village Hall, the place where the story

began, for a weekend of concert performances with the cast reading off book. For Tim, this was a necessary and important process. Firstly, because he wanted the local community, and in particular the ladies themselves, to get a first look at the intended production, and secondly, because he wanted the honest Northern feedback from a real audience. This and the project in general, has been a real eye opener for Gary in particular. It has allowed him to address what he does as a songwriter in a number of ways. He has spent most of his career writing songs and then in his words, ‘dressing them up to make them sound better.’ For these performances the songs had to stand up to being played in a

village hall on a piano and guitar which made him think about how he writes songs in a way his career in pop never did. He is by nature a writer of hit records and yet he knew above all that the songs must in style and tempo serve the narrative of the script first. He believes there are two or three songs that people will be singing as they leave the theatre. Gary said: “It’s a complete luxury living with these songs, rethinking them, re-branding them, changing the tempo, it’s been so beautiful to watch it and I do believe we’ve now got the best versions of our songs. The play will open in Leeds just before Christmas and Manchester just after, before hopefully transferring to the West End.

Memorial plans for Mexborough poet Ted Hughes By Lynsey Bradford A MEMORIAL to former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes will see him meandering through two different landscapes each paying homage to his work and early life in Mexborough. A maquette has been made by Barnsley sculptor Graham Ibbeson who has tried to capture the character of Hughes and his love for the town, as well as the environment which was crucial to the development of that character. Graham, of Cockerham Lane, Barnsley, said: “Ted spent his formative years in Mexborough from being seven-years-old and didn’t leave home properly until he was 20. “A lot of his work is based in South Yorkshire — Mexborough is a working town, a working class area. “What I’ve tried to do is reflect that kind of South Yorkshire man, but also Ted Hughes the poet. So he is walking through a part industrial and part rural landscape. “One the industrial side there is pit head winding gear, chimneys and coal and on the rural side there is the pike, fox and crow and the female muse.” Ted Hughes moved to Mexborough when he was seven, he was born in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire. He was Poet Laureate from 1984 until his death in 1998. He was friends with Monk Bretton man

Jack Brown, who has been trying to get a lasting memorial to Hughes for quite a while, and the pair corresponded over a number of years. Graham said he was approached to create the memorial because there is no memorial to Hughes in Mexborough. He arranged with Jack and former Mayor of Doncaster Peter Davies for a blue plaque to be erected where Hughes used to live on Main Street. The new memorial will be erected in Mexborough, but the location is still a topic of discussion. Graham said: “We’re looking at a site near the markets, but there is some development happening there. “Main Street is not really suitable for it, but there are several other suitable locations. “We want it in central Mexborough.” Graham said the memorial would also be accompanied by a Ted Hughes trail and an educational programme so schoolchildren in the area would know who Ted Hughes was. The maquette will be put on display at The White Bear, Church Street, Barnsley, on November 5 at 2pm. Graham added: “I’m still working on it at the minute, so I may be happy with it when it’s finished. “There are certain elements which I have changed but it does look like him so hopefully I’ve got it right. “It is open to change though.”

week when England winger Jessica Clarke popped down to the ground with the Women’s FA Cup. Jess, who plays professionally for Notts County, also took time to chat to youngsters taking part in a tournament on the astro turf pitches.
