2 ÂŁ50k grant will boost visitors A ÂŁ50,000 grant from the Arts Council will help increase footfall at visitor attractions such as Worsbrough Mill and Cannon Hall. The grant was applied for by Barnsley Council’s art and museums service. Coun Linda Burgess said Worsbrough Mill was looking at possibly creating a shop to sell organic flour, and other ideas to help expand the business then just offering milling demonstrations. She said because there is already a shop at Cannon Hall, other activities and ideas are being considered to get more people in. “We do need to make sure we keep these visitor attractions and increase the opportunity for them to get people to come and spend money so these attractions aren’t lost.â€? She said arts and culture were seeing cuts across the country and the team had done well to secure that sum of money.

LAURA’S ON MEND FROM RARE ILLNESS BY DAN GREAVES A LUNDWOOD girl is on the road to recovery after she was temporarily blinded by a rare tumour that only affects about one in a million people. Laura Evans, 12, of Parkland View, was diagnosed with pheochromocytoma – a rare tumour on the adrenal glands of the kidneys. The tumour led to Laura having extremely high blood pressure which caused bleeding behind her eyes, temporarily blinding her. Her condition is so rare she has become the focus of essays and medical journals. Mum Julia said: “Laura started feeling ill about two years ago — she was complaining of palpitations and sweating. “One day she said her vision was

blurry so I took her for an eye test. “From there the optician told us to go straight to Barnsley Hospital. “She was haemorrhaging behind both eyes. It was from there where she was diagnosed with pheochromocytoma. “The consultant said he’d never seen that in a child before in his 35 years as a doctor.� Laura was referred to consultants at the Queen’s Medical Centre at Nottingham University Hospital, where she had the tumour surgically removed in September. Doctors spent three days bringing her blood pressure down before the operation. Laura now has to return to the hospital once a month for tests. “She’s doing okay now — she seems better than she has been for the past couple of years,� said Julia. “She’s just so brave. She’s been

Holy Trinity pupil was selected by the When You Wish Upon a Star charity to meet pop star Ed Sheeran. Laura said he was ‘brilliant’.

SEAMAN’S VICTORY TO GET COMRADES THEIR MEDALS BY PAUL NIZINSKYJ A FORMER Arctic convoy seaman is celebrating after ‘battling for years’ to have his comrades recognised for keeping Russian supply lines open during the war. Ken Burkinshaw, 89, said he was very pleased to hear Prime Minister David Cameron’s announcement that those veterans who braved perilous conditions in the Arctic 67 years ago would finally be awarded medals. Ken, of Cherry Tree Street, Hoyland, has four medals awarded to him by the Russians. But the Cold War made doing

the same a sensitive issue for the British government as the Russians were the new enemy after 1945. And, by the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, veterans were denied recognition because of a rule stating medals may only be awarded within five years of a war’s end. Only about 400 are thought to be still alive and Ken said he felt sorry for the widows of servicemen who had not lived long enough to be awarded for their service. But, as an active member of the Russian Convoy Club in Dewsbury and the Royal British Legion, he said it was time well spent.

He said: “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time and a lot of people, including several MPs, have become involved in trying to push this through over time. I’m very glad to see our work has paid off.” Ken served aboard the HMS Sheffield after being conscripted once he was old enough to fight. “I was going up there in 1940 at 16-years-old,” he said. “We complain if it goes five degrees below zero here but there it was minus 40 degrees. You had to be careful your nose didn’t run because, if you tried to wipe it, it would break off. And quite often the guns wouldn’t fire because they were

full up with ice.” But the bitter elements were not the only perils Ken and his fellow seamen had to face. There were also German U-boats and aircraft. “We lost 14 ships in one convoy once,” he said. He added that, despite receiving the cold shoulder from the British government, he and his comrades had been well treated by the Russians. He said: “I’ve been to the Russian embassy three times for presentations. The Russians in this country are marvellous to us. “At least they appreciated what we had done.”

Successful slimmers: Slimming World members Kerry Betton, Alison Brammer and Dorothy Key. Picture: Brett Carr. PD34008

SUPER SLIMMERS BY HELEN WILLIAMS THREE slimmers who lost 17 stones between them are shaping a new career helping others to lose weight. Alison Brammer, Dorothy Key and Kerry Betton are now Slimming World consultants and re-launching groups in Lundwood, Darfield and Goldthorpe, and setting up a new group in Kendray. Kerry, 43, from Worsbrough Common,

On top of that, I’ve got a new career and I’m doing something I’m passionate about.” Dorothy, 54, a nurse from Barnburgh, had tried to lose weight many times before but always got tired of restricting what she ate. She lost 2st 4lbs. Alison, 38, from Cudworth, lost 4st 9lbs. “I never dreamed I would end up helping other people to lose weight.”

WELCOME RETURN OF IVOR’S FISH AND CHIPS BY GAIL ROBINSON A POPULAR fish and chip shop which closed down and then fell derelict has got customers once again queuing in the street. For more than 60 years hungry fans had flocked to Ivor’s in Thurnscoe for the finest fried fare. Ivor himself became a local legend – as did his crispy batter, crunchy chips and home-made secret recipe tartar sauce. When it was finally time for Ivor to hang up his fish fryer, the business was passed on to his son Bernard and the hungry punters continued to be kept well-fed. But ten years ago Bernard too retired and the business on Houghton Road was

sold. It existed as a kebab shop, but as its popularity plummeted so did sales and it closed three years ago, and was vandalised until the building was almost wrecked. However, 18 months ago three local couples decided to step in and bring back Ivor’s. Dawn and Graham Asquith, of Barnies Rubble DIY, Steve and Julie Roebuck, of BSR Garage, and Jonathan Roebuck and Karen Marsh all had fond childhood memories and put their money where their tastebuds were and began the renovation project. They also contacted Bernard who agreed to not only pass on all his frying tips and show shop manager Warren Scaife how to

cook the perfect fish and chips, but also to share his family's secret tartar sauce recipe. When the chippy reopened last week there were dozens of people waiting for the doors to open and business has been booming since. Dawn Asquith said: “Ivor’s was such a huge part of not only Thurnscoe, but the entire Dearne Valley. Everyone went there as kids, as teenagers and grown ups and it was like something in our community died when Ivor’s went. “The support has been absolutely incredible. We already have seven staff and are setting on two more because business has been so busy.”

Headteacher moved by retirement send-off DEDICATED headteacher Harry Goodliffe has retired after 29 years at Wilthorpe Junior School. Mr Goodliffe, 61, said he had been moved by his warm send-off. “I’ve had presentations galore and there was an assembly that was brilliant where the kids sang, recited poems and told stories about me. Mr Goodliffe was also given presents of a camera, a sat nav device and £100. A Barnsley man, now living in Darfield, he started at the school in 1983 after spells at Worsbrough Common junior and pri-

mary schools. He did his teacher training at Kesteven College in Grantham in 1969 where he met his wife Christine. They have a daughter Amy, 30, who lives in Darfield, and has followed in both her parents’ footsteps by becoming a teacher. Mr Goodliffe said: “I loved my job – even my hobby was school. On holiday I would see something and think ‘that would be good in the classroom’.” He added that one of the highlights of his career was in 2008, when Ofsted described Wilthorpe Junior School as ‘outstanding’.

Post office modernised A POST office will close for nine days to undergo modernisation. New Lodge Post Office, on Wakefield Road, will be converted to an open-plan branch, with five serving points. It will be closed for refur-

bishment from January 16, reopening on January 25. New opening hours will be 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. The nearest offices during closure will be High Street, Royston and Haddon Road, Athersley.

APPRENTICE VICTORY FOR GRAFTER ASHLEIGH BY LYNSEY BRADFORD LORD Alan Sugar’s search for a young apprentice is over after he awarded Dearne youngster Ashleigh PorterExley £25,000 to kick-start her business career. Ashleigh, 17, of Swinton, beat off stiff competition from 11 other candidates to be crowned the winner of this year’s Young Apprentice. She said she was ecstatic when Lord Sugar announced her as the winner on the show and will use the money to set up a business in either property management or accountancy. She said: “I felt numb, totally ecstatic. It still hasn’t sunk in yet.” You’re hired: Young Apprentice winner Ashleigh PorterAshleigh, who is studying business and admin, and taking an evening accountancy Exley.

Lottery grant secures future of town’s drink and drugs project A DRUG and alcohol advice service has received a £138,000 grant to ensure its recovery enterprises project can continue. Barnsley Alcohol and Drug Advisory Service (BADAS) has welcomed the cash boost from the Big Lottery Fund as it means the service’s Recovery Enterprises project will be able to continue when its Coalfields Regeneration Trust grant comes to an end. Recovery Enterprises works with people in Barnsley who are recovering from drug and alcohol problems and aims to increase their confidence, motivation, skills and employability, as well as supporting their continued recovery. The project is based in a workshop on Pontefract Road where participants learn to make quality wooden products, recycle furniture and produce craft items for retail. As well as getting involved in the production side of the project, people can also help in running the business such as attending craft fairs and

festivals, and marketing. Spokesman Lynn Rogers said: “We are thrilled to have received this grant – it will enable us to add additional recovery support resources to the project and to continue on after our current grant expires. “We’re seeing positive outcomes for people recovering from drug and alcohol problems and the new funding will allow us to build on this and enable more people to move on in their recovery and their lives.” She said people recovering from drug and alcohol problems find the woodworking project gives them structure and provides activities which take their minds off their problems. The project provides a workplace type environment and gives people experience of time keeping, teamwork and skills development, said Lynn, and more than 120 people have benefited from the project to date.

course, applied for the show after watching it with friends, but said she never ‘in a million years’ thought she would get through the audition stages, never mind win. The former Wath Comprehensive pupil added: “I loved every moment of it. Some of my favourite parts would be making such strong friendships with the other candidates. “I also loved meeting Labrinth and swimming with the sharks, which were two of the treats I went on as prizes for winning some of the tasks.” Ashleigh said her favourite task was when her team had to create an afternoon tearoom and the end task, which involved creating a sports brand for a global market. She added: “I love a fast-paced, intense challenge and I think the team spirit and determi-

nation on both of those tasks made them even more enjoyable. “I think the fact I never claimed I knew everything made me stand out sfrom the others – I am very much a ‘say it how it is’ type of person. “Also, I think the fact that I am a grafter stood out for me, and Lord Sugar respected that.” She described Lord Sugar as inspirational, and said his sidekicks Karren Brady and Nick Hewer took all the candidates under their wings throughout the series. She added: “He’s firm but fair and he’s also very witty. “All of the candidates were so passionate about the competition. I got on with all the candidates. We all learned to deal with each other’s bad habits.”

LITTLEWOOD AND WILLIAMS GIVEN CRICKET LEAGUE’S HIGHEST HONOUR TWO STALWARTS of Worsbrough Bridge CC have been given the highest honour the South Yorkshire Cricket League can bestow. Trevor Williams and Derek Littlewood collected the Harry May Memorial Trophy at the league’s end of year awards dinner for their combined 116 years of service to the club. Littlewood started scoring for the club in 1951 at the age off 11. He started playing at 14 and eventually became the first team captain, leading Worsbrough to the South Riding A Division title in 1982. He won the B division averages in 1977. Littlewood became Bridge chairman in 1996. Williams joined Worsbrough in 1957 and soon became a star all-rounder for the first team with regular wickets and centuries. He captained the team for a period and continued playing into the 1990s, winning the C division bowling award in 1996. Williams was club secretary for 20 years from 1988. Both Williams and Littlewood were named life presidents of the club in 2010. Club secretary Alan Littlewood said: “At a time when loyalty at a cricket club is hard to find, these two have been rewarded for their brilliant service to the club. “Both men have spent their fair share of time doing groundsman duties through the years and both became club umpires

after playing. “They opened the batting together for many years and became a formidable opening pair, with a reputation that put fear into many an opening bowler. “All their hard work and dedication has put the club on a firm footing, and they are an inspiration to the ‘new generation’ of Briggers.”

Stalwarts: Trevor Williams and Derek Littlewood, above top, receiving their joint award from South Yorkshire League President Alan Phelan and Williams and Littlewood with other Bridge winners Tom Peck and Rob Peace.

Reece Kelly also competed while Spencer Harrod and Callum Ogley impressed on their debuts. Coach Eddie Newton said: “The kids were fantastic at Goole. There were 145 kids there. “We are now preparing to take a team to the South Yorkshire Open in the new year.”
