Liz packs her trunk to pursue art

3 Queen gives JPs praise THE Queen has praised magistrates as they celebrated their 650th anniversary. She paid tribute to the role of JPs, who handle 90 per cent of criminal cases, in a message read out at a luncheon at Holiday Inn, Dodworth. VIPs at the event included Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire David Moody, the High Sheriff Andrew Coombe, the Magistrates’ Association chairman John Thornhill and Mayor Coun Karen Dyson. Others who attended included district judge John Foster and his predecessor Michael Rosenberg. The lunch was one of a number of events nationwide to celebrate JPs whose role has included monitoring church attendance and enforcing the Common Book of Prayer in the 16th century to dealing with those involved in this summer’s riots.

FOOTBALLERS risk cutting themselves when they play on a Monk Bretton field because broken glass is being left on the pitch by youths. Chairman of West Green junior football club, Darren Hayes, which has two teams playing on Silverdale Park, said they were having to spend half-an-hour before each match clearing the ground. A couple of kids, who don’t play for the football club, have already cut themselves while playing on the field, he said. “It has got quite bad. There are quite a number of beer bottles and wine bottles – both full and broken ones. “Bottle necks are also being thrown into the goal areas. “Three or four youths the other week thought it was quite funny to smash glass bottles against big stones.”

PLAYERS’ GOAL IS TO PLAY ON A SAFE PITCH ‘Parents have to scour the field for half-an-hour checking to make sure there is no glass’ Darren said it was worse at the weekends, when youths have been outside drinking the night before. On one occasion the club had to call the police as they saw yobs on the roof of Silverdale Community Centre throwing tiles on the ground. “Parents have to scour the field for half-an-hour checking to make sure there is no glass. We easily fill a carrier bag and there are often fragments of glass. We shouldn’t have to do that.” The issue has been made a priority for Royston Safer Neighbourhood Team, which means patrols in the area will be increased. Darren said he realised it was difficult to stop but hoped this would make a

difference. He said the only other thing he could think of was having a warden to clear the ground before matches. At least four football teams use the pitch and there have also been concerns about glass smashed in the multiuse games area. Coun Margaret Sheard said she had received a lot of complaints about the issue. “It’s really quite dangerous. If they are playing football and there is a bit of glass, they aren’t going to see it. “West Green junior football teams have done really well getting quite a few children off the streets, giving them something to do. “It’s a shame for all that to be spoilt by a handful of people.”

Sisters gets accolade for her mentoring role A MENTOR at Barnsley Hospital has been recognised for her outstanding contribution. Sister Amy Marshall was presented one of six awards for her ‘outstanding contribution to mentoring students in clinical practice’. The award, from Sheffield Hallam University, was presented at the annual mentor conference and covers all of the health trusts in South Yorkshire where student nurses can be placed as part of their learning. Nursing students across the region nominated mentors who had made an impact on them and Amy, the learning environment manager for ward 34 was one of the few who received the accolade. Amy said: “We enjoy having students here and aim to provide a great example of what nursing is; hard work, high standards and the best possible patient outcomes. “The award means a lot to me as it came from students themselves, but the recognition is for us as a ward and a team, it acknowledges the effort put in. “The students we mentor today are our future colleagues, and as such we want competent, compassionate, skilled nurses to work with.”

THE man told off by a judge for referring to female court staff as ‘love’ says he is grateful for being pulled up on his manners. New district judge John Foster says men appearing before him must refer to all female court staff as ma’am. When Geoff Guest appeared before him over a breach of an order, he was asked to confirm his identity by court advisor Pam Bower and when he replied ‘yes love’ was swiftly taken to task by the judge.

Lidl plans delayed PLANS for a new Lidl supermarket at Town End have been delayed because of plans for another store which will adjoin the building. The former Co-op Pioneer site was originally to include a Lidl supermarket and two smaller retail units which would open onto Peel Street. But Lidl has now ‘sold’ this extra space to a single unnamed ‘national non-food retailer’. It says work will start again soon. A spokesman said: “We have been progressing matters with a national operator for the additional retail unit to be constructed as part of our development. “In order to construct this unit to their specification, works have been temporarily delayed whilst our engineers and contractors incorporate their requirements into the design.”

It’s what I always say to anyone if I know their name, ‘yes love’, ‘hello love’.” “But he’s right. It will be yes ma’am next time.” Mr Foster said there was a lack of respect in the country, and that courts should maintain ‘proper standards’. “Courts are solemn and serious.

Branching out: Moo Design’s Kimberley Lawton, left, and owner Clare Bottomley. Picture: Brett Carr

The Barnsley shop opened two years ago in the middle of the recession but despite tough economic circumstances trading is strong. Owner Clare Bottomley said Moo already had customers from Leeds so the move made sense. “We are going to keep our base in Barnsley because we have built up something we are proud of. We have designers who stayed here rather than going to London. We’ve had a lot of customers from Leeds so thought it was

time to expand.” Moo is based in George Yard and its workshop is above the retail unit. When it launched there were two staff but that has grown to ten. “What we are most proud of is we have been through the recession and we have managed to give lots of people jobs and give local businesses work.” Clare said Moo, known for its handbags and leather accessorised clothing, has customers in Cornwall, Liverpool and Manchester. Many other retailers had copied Moo’s designs, she said. “We take it as a form of flattery.”

Ardsley school receives good report from Ofsted AN ARDSLEY school has been given a glowing report by Ofsted education inspectors. Oakhill Primary was graded ‘good’ overall, the second highest grade Ofsted can give. It was also judged ‘outstanding’ in some areas, including pupils’ behaviour, the extent to which pupils feel safe and the effectiveness of care, guidance and support.The report says: “Pupils are keen to help one another and as a result, behaviour is exemplary in and out of lessons. A good example of this was when an older boy intervened to settle a minor dispute among younger pupils playing bas-

ketball. A resolution was found quickly and the older boy supported the group in playing more effectively as a team.” It also says that on some lessons, the more able pupils are not challenged enough and gave this as one area for the school to improve. Summer Lane primary in Barnsley was inspected at the same time as Oakhill. It was graded ‘satisfactory’. The report said some aspects were good, but improvements were needed in writing, the nursery stage (especially in reading) and in the quality of teaching and assessment.

ring in the first place. According to the RAC most breakdowns are caused by a lack of maintenance or understanding of a car’s systems. While it is not recommended that the average motorist attempts complex car maintenance, such as changing spark plugs or fan belt replacement, there are some basic checks that drivers can do each week to minimise the risk of a breakdown or accident. These include: I Make sure all exterior lights, including brake lights, work correctly. Remember to keep the lights clean for maximum visibility. I Check front and rear

wiper blades for wear. I Check windscreen washers, making sure they are adjusted correctly. Screen wash should be added during the winter. I Ensure dashboard warning lights operate correctly. I Check oil and water levels and ensure they are topped up. Have the antifreeze content of the cooling system checked before the first frost. I If battery level is low, top up with distilled water (unless the battery is a maintenance-free one). Check the battery connections, ensuring they are tight and uncorroded. I Inspect the jack and

wheel brace, making sure you know how to use them – practise changing all four wheels if necessary. If locking wheel nuts are fitted, ensure the locking key is in the car. I Tyres, including the spare, should be checked for pressure and tread depth. The minimum legal tread depth for cars is 1.6mm around all the tyre. I Inspect car keys for wear and replace if necessary. A worn key will quickly wear out a lock barrel and cause the lock to jam. It is worth noting that batteries in a fob will usually require replacement at least twice a year to maintain operating performance. It is also essential that drivers make sure their car is regularly serviced. A pre-winter service will give drivers peace of mind and it is essential for those

Modern vehicles are complex and inexperienced DIY maintenance could do more harm than good – particularly where electronic injection systems or safety aspects such as braking systems are involved – so it’s best to leave certain things to the experts. According to the RAC, the most common fault that stops a car is a flat or faulty battery (17 per cent), followed by tyres (eight per cent), engine (four per

cent) and alternator (three per cent). If you do experience a flat battery, here are a few simple tips that may get you moving: If your engine tries to turn over, it may not be completely dead. Check if any lights, or other electric equipment has been left on. If they are, turn them off and don’t try to start the car for 20 minutes. This should be enough time to allow the battery to regain enough power to start the engine. To extend battery life, get into the habit of turning off all controls, including lights, the heated rear window, and radio, before turning off the engine when it is parked up for the night.

Flying high: Dave Tindall in action at the British Supercross Nations Cup at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield. (S)

SUPER DAVE IS SOLDIERING ON DESPITE being 30 years older than most of his rivals, a soldier from Wombwell competed in the British Supercross Nations Cup. Dave Tindall failed to make it through to the final after finishing sixth in his 12-man heat. But the 46-year-old says he was proud of his performance in the biggest event of his motorsport career at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield. “I walked away at the end of the night which is a big achievement,” he said. “I was 30 years older than a lot of the other riders and I was the oldest in the competition by 12 years. I had a really good night. “I was in contention to qualify for the

final but I did not want to risk falling off because I have a job to do whereas most of those other guys have all of half-term to recover.” Tindall began racing when he was 13 but gave it up to focus on representing the army windsurfing team which he did for 17 of the 22 years he was in the forces. He served in countries such as Bosnia, Germany and Cyrpus. After finishing the mandatory 22year stint as a soldier he joined the Territorial Army and completed a tour of Afghanistan in March. Since then he has been driving a bin lorry for Barnsley Council. He has just applied to return to Afghanistan early next year. He will race again at the next round of the Nations Cup in Newcastle on November 26.

Scott’s floating talent SCOTT Nutter, eight, stole the show in his first competitive race when he came second in the under 11s in the first leg of the South Yorkshire Cross-Country Championships held at Clifton Park, Rotherham. The Barnsley AC prodigy beat much older boys and is tipped for great things.
