7 Gecko turns up in spuds at farm BY KATIA HARSTON A SHOP supervisor at Cannon Hall Farm had a ‘tropical’ shock as she was restocking the vegetable racks. Employee Clare Lyons, who lives in Barnsley, found an uninvited visitor nestling in a box of new potatoes in the Cawthorne farm’s shop – a baby gecko. The potatoes had been brought up from Suffolk, which is not an area commonly known for its exotic reptiles, and farm staff believe the little lizard had hitched a ride from the spud supplier’s depot down south. I If you can help find a home for the gecko contact the farm on 790427.

SCHOOLS’ MERGER PAYS OFF

BY LIAM FOUNTAIN

ONLY a small percentage of former pupils of Kingstone and Holgate schools have ended up without a job, training or out of education, according to latest figures. The schools, which merged to become Horizon Community College in September, were both below the regional average for NEETs (not in education, employment or training). Kingstone with 1.8 per cent and Holgate 2.1 per cent of pupils respectively, the average being 4.5 per cent. Since the merger significant investment has been made in careers, information, advice and guidance, as well as workrelated learning for students. Paul Harrison has been appointed as a careers advisor, Nicola Daykin as workrelated learning co-ordinator, and Maxine Derbyshire who delivers support to stu-

dents on vocational placements. Paul was the careers advisor for Kingstone and Holgate schools before the merger. He said: “These figures could not be achieved without the help and support from the staff and pupils, as well as working in collaboration with specialist multiagents. I have been extremely fortunate for the past ten years to work in two schools within Barnsley who’ve had great leadership teams in place. This is now being strongly reflected and encouraged within the new school. Historically, both Kingstone and Holgate have had similar achievements of low NEET figures over a number of years, making them two of the best schools both in the Yorkshire Humber region and nationally.” Mr Harrison said the process students go through ensures each of them has the opportunity to have face-to-face, careers guidance, and the chance to do work experience.

WARNING OVER SKIP HIRE FIRMS

It’s full steam ahead with the Santa specials HO ho ho, Santa's on track for delivering his present this year. Popular Santa Specials are back at Elsecar Heritage Railway and 3,000 tickets have been sold so far, according to Heritage Railway chairman, Del Tilling. The festive railway rides got underway just recently with Santa walking through the train handing out presents and spreading Christmas cheer. Beer, wine and mince pies are on offer as well as cupcakes from neighbouring business Ania's Cupcakes at Elsecar Heritage Centre. “The Santa Specials are increasing in popularity every year,” Del said. “There’s no better way to start Christmas than by taking the little ones to see Santa on a real life steam train.”

FINES could be issued to people who use two skip hire and waste management companies after their permits were revoked for environmental offences. Grantscope Limited and RG Wastecare Limited were prosecuted by the Environment Agency, after surveillance showed the companies were regularly disposing of waste by burning it at their site at Boulder Bridge, Shaw Lane, Carlton. They were both found guilty and ordered to pay fines of £10,000 each. The companies had appealed to the Planning Inspectorate but the decision was upheld and the companies’ registrations as waste carriers, which previously allowed them to legally transport waste, were removed. Ian Harrison, of the Environment Agency, said: “After the January prosecution we carried out an assessment to

decide whether the companies were competent to continue operating. We decided that the impact of the offences had been serious and that the risk of the companies reoffending was significant enough to revoke their permit. “Following the Planning Inspectorate decision the permit revocation is now in effect, and the companies are not legally allowed to transport or accept waste. “Householders should be aware that using an unregistered waste carrier to take away their waste could result in fines of up to £5,000, and for businesses the fines could be even higher. “Information on registered waste carriers can be found on the Environment Agency website.” The companies also use a number of trading names, including Star Skips and Mad Metals.

METRODOME GYM LIFTS TOP PRIZE AT AWARDS NIGHT BY LYNSEY BRADFORD THE Metrodome’s gym has been crowned one of the best in the country at a prestigious national awards ceremony.

Worthy winner: The Metrodome’s Kirsten Peace and the Gym of the Year award. Picture: Wes Hobson. PD33451

It was one of the finalists in the National Fitness Awards at The Athena in Leicester, fending off stiff competition from hundreds of nominations to win the best local authority or trust-managed gym of the year category. Those shortlisted were required to have made good progress in recruiting and retaining members, or invested heavily in creating new fitness opportunities. Tim Wilson, said he felt very proud to be chief executive of Barnsley Premier Leisure, which runs the Metrodome. “We were proud just to be shortlisted for this fantastic award. I know personally

how hard the staff and everyone associated with BPL have worked. “We were confident of our own successes, but knew that we had tough competition amongst our fellow nominees. When we were named it was an amazing feeling and an outstanding achievement for BPL.” The submission highlighted an increase in membership to 4,200 and the successful introduction of a children’s gym which now has 400 members. A GP referral scheme which has helped almost 900 people was also praised by the judges. Tim added: “The Metrodome is not the only BPL site which has improved; we have achieved a 646 per cent total membership growth across all sites.” Judges praised The

quality and quantity of nominations in this year’s National Fitness Awards were higher than ever and all our winners can be justifiably proud of their achievements.”

Metrodome for its continued investment in facilities, calling it 'the perfect venue for a great day out for the whole family.' Event director Judith Halkerston said: “The

COUNCILLORS GET £20,000 FUNDING FOR TOILET BLOCK BY KATIA HARSTON FOOTBALLERS and spectators of two junior clubs won’t be caught short again after £20,000 was secured to buy a toilet block for the pitch where they play. More than 250 kids from Ardsley Athletico JFC and Hoyland Common Falcons’ JFC use the Elmhirst pitch on Ardsley Road. It doesn’t have any toilets, or

changing rooms, and for the last six years the two teams have had to use the loo at the nearby McDonalds or youth club. Raymond Pinder, the chairman of the Ardsley club, said it’s not been ideal which is why the teams have pushed for facilities to be built so folk aren’t ‘caught short’. “With this money there is going to be proper plumbed toilets on site and I believe there’s going to be a first aid

‘With this money there is going to be proper plumbed toilets on site’ and changing room as well. “What we originally wanted was a large changing room and toilet facilities and that was going to cost about £150,000. But the £20,000 for this is definitely a step in the right direction.” Worsbrough ward councillors

John Clarke, Betty Barlow and Gill Carr have been instrumental in securing the funding. Coun Clarke said it had been a long, drawn-out process but he was happy with the result. The money will be used to buy a secure cabin complete with separate men’s and

women’s toilets, and a changing/first aid room, which will be on site by February. He said Barnsley Council had given £13,000 and £7,000 had come from S106 money released for community use by the developer of the Leslie Road development in Kendray. “We were told the football teams would like us to consider putting toilets on there,” said Coun Clarke. Every time they held a big tournament, attracting hundreds of people, they

were having to spend about £1,000 on portable toilets. We have worked hard to make it happen and the ward councillors are buying the teams a generator to use as well so they have electricity on site.” Coun Clarke said the toilet facilities are an investment in the village as they will belong to the ward, not the clubs, so they can be used elsewhere in Worsbrough should something happen to the clubs and future need arise.

Celebration time: Trees in Mandela Gardens, Barnsley, were wrapped in wool as yarnbombers descended to publicise carers’ rights day and World aids Day. The exercise, where trees, railings and lampposts are strung with knitted and crocheted items, was on December 1 and saw celebrations in the Civic. Visitors and organisers also celebrated international disabled persons’ day. Pictured is Jenni Upperdine, of Swanswell Carers’ Support Service. PD33385

£4M NEEDED TO CLEAR LAKES AT CANNON HALL BY LYNSEY BRADFORD UP TO £4m is needed to clear the lakes at Cannon Hall of silt and restore features including the walled garden, greenhouses and paths. The Save Our Lakes campaign was launched in July by the Friends of Cannon Hall and funding will be sought from the Heritage Lottery to restore the lakes and make improvements to the surrounding areas. There are also plans to include the creation of an outdoor classroom and activities for schools and families, Coun Linda Burgess said. She added that the lakes had become silted up naturally over a number of years and the project would look at ways of preventing it happening again in the future. “Most of the people are aware of the beautiful lakes we have at Cannon Hall. When there is heavy rainfall, there is a massive amount of water that’s coming down and dredging a lot of silt down from very high up. “There have been some investigations in to what could be done, though it will be a massive cost. “The council doesn’t have the budgets to do that kind of work and so there is this campaign that’s been started.”

Call for money to feed animals

‘The council doesn’t have the budgets to do that kind of work and so there is this campaign that’s been started’ Coun Burgess said a bid for funding would need to be made to make sure the lakes are improved so they are visually more attractive but also a better habitat for a range of wildlife. “It’s not as simple as getting a dredger in but clearly there is a lot of work to do to clear the lakes of rubbish and there is work to be done to make sure that any silting up in the future is potentially addressed.” She said the restoration works would help increase the number of visitors to Cannon Hall and the lakes needed to be in a good state in order for that to happen. “It’s a big scheme and potentially very costly and will need a bid to the Heritage Lottery but that does have to be supported by other funding, which is why fundraising events have been taking place. “They need to see that the community is absolutely wanting this to happen and the Save our Lakes campaign has got a lot of support in Cawthorne.”

A HORSE sanctuary is appealing for donations to help feed animals during the winter and keep the centre open. Albert’s Horse Sanctuary, on South Lane, Cawthorne, needs £1,000 to cover costs during the Christmas period. The equine charity, which has been registered since 2006, cares for 45 animals. Sanctuary manager Mary Hepworth said funding is needed because of the extra food required by animals during the colder months. Although primarily a horse sanctuary, the charity also looks after other animals, including pigs, sheep, goats and rabbits. “There are various reasons why the animals come to us,” said Mary. “If people can’t afford them any more, if they’re old and if they’re not rideable. They either put them to sleep or send them to a sanctuary.” I To donate call Mary on 07721327879 or visit the sanctuary on South Lane, Cawthorne, S75 4EF

THE WIND FARM OBJECTORS VOW TO FIGHT ON BY KATIA HARSTON OBJECTORS to a wind farm development in Woolley were left bitterly disappointed when the two, 46m turbines were approved. Village residents now fear it will lead to a flurry of wind farms in the area following the decision by Wakefield Council’s planning board. It means York-based energy firm, Arcus Renewables, can go ahead and erect the turbines on land off Gypsy Lane, south of the village, in a field close to Windhill Lane and Wheatley Wood at Staincross. The approval comes despite Woolley Parish Council lodging an objection and another 90 individual objection letters. Woolley Village Residents’ Association and Barnsley Council also objected. A representative from the village association, Richard Dixon, along with Carol Robson from the parish council, spoke at the

planning board meeting to persuade the committee to overturn the planning officer’s recommendation for approval. Mr Dixon said no public consultation was carried out prior to the plans being submitted and the first many residents heard about it was through a small news feature. He said a village action group had been fighting the plans since they were first submitted in April. “This was an ill-conceived and poorly thought through application for many reasons. “First, it took us to point out to Arcus that, due to the low bridge at Haigh, they would not be able to use this route to deliver substantial components for their scheme. “Indeed, we still remain convinced no-one from the developers has ever visited the village. “Second, the turbine site has huge archaeological importance which Arcus failed to pick up on. “Third, their proposed delivery routes take in very narrow coun-

try lanes not suited to HGVs. “We believe this will result in considerable damage to road surfaces and hedgerows, some of which are protected. “Fourth, neither a proper noise assessment nor risk assessment survey has been carried out by the developer. “Their application was lacking in so much detail, a decision was deferred back in September.” Fellow campaigner Carol Robson said the developers stated there would be ‘benefits to the local economy’ with local employment and extra trade for local businesses. She said: “There will be no local job opportunities due to the short-term construction phase and we don’t have any shops, pubs or cafes for the contractors to use. It’s clear to all there will be no community benefit whatsoever.” Following the decision, the village action group has committed to remain together and plans to examine all available options to try and reverse the approval.

Dream role: A graduate has landed a dream job working for Sky Sports. Emma Paton, aged 23, of Manchester Road, Thurlstone, was chosen after she did an unpaid internship with the broadcaster at

the Olympics. She will cover a variety of sports, and one day hopes to become a presenter, after completing a masters in sports journalism earlier this year. “I am really looking forward to it and excited.”

LOUIS AND OLIVIA UNCOVER THE BEST GROTTO IN TOWN THE Santa’s Grotto at Worsbrough Mill has been voted the best in Barnsley after the Chronicle sent a family on a secret mission. Laura Deakin, 25, of Jones Avenue, Wombwell, visited grottos at the mill, Wentworth Castle Gardens, Cannon Hall and The Alhambra with her children Louis, six, and Olivia, three, with the aim of picking the best one. She said: “The children really enjoyed it at Worsbrough Mill. It was more like a pantomime than a grotto. “The mill was done out like a toy shop and the children went in and met an elf and a reindeer. “Then they wrote a letter to Santa and went upstairs where they were baking bread and then they went into see Santa. We were in there for quite a while.” Laura said even when Louis questioned why he had seen more than one Santa, the Santa at Worsbrough Mill explained that the real Santa was very busy in the North Pole and that all the other Santas were helping him out. Laura said grottos at Wentworth Castle and Cannon Hall came a close second, both having activities for the children. ers Vouchbe can d for ase purch perfect the tmas Chris t Gif

DUGHER CALLS FOR THE VOTING AGE TO BE LOWERED BY LYNSEY BRADFORD BARNSLEY MP Michael Dugher has called for the voting age to be lowered to 16 to engage younger people in politics.

Seeking change: MP Michael Dugher.

Mr Dugher, who is the vicechairman of the Labour Party, said confidence and trust in politicians was at an all time low following the expenses scandal. He believes fresh ideas are needed to get youngsters involved in voting following the police and crime commissioner elections last month. Mr Dugher said he agreed with James Evans, a member of the UK Youth Parliament, who in 2009 said: “At 16, we can

marry our MP, we can sleep with our MP and we can have children with our MP. We can sign up in preparation for fighting, potentially dying for our MP. “And suddenly we are not mature enough to vote for them. What an absolute disgrace.” Mr Dugher said a ‘worrying’ electoral commission study in 2010 revealed only 44 per cent of 17 to 24-year-olds were registered to vote and that new ways to increase their participation was needed. Mr Dugher added: “Many young people are the ones bearing the brunt of the harsh economic climate. Extending the vote to 16 and 17-year-olds would give them a tangible way

of expressing their views. “Young people need a say as their future is synonymous with the future of the country as a whole. “When a young person can’t get a job and is left languishing in long-term unemployment, this is not just a disaster for that person and their family, but for the whole country. “The crisis of youth unemployment risks creating a generation that is disengaged from the economy, from society and from politics, a generation that believes that they have no stake in the country.” The Barnsley MP said Labour leader Ed Milliband had been supportive of the principle of votes at 16, and believes politics needs to change and open up.

He also confirmed the Labour Party is actively considering this prospect as part of its policy review. Mr Dugher added: “This need to consider fresh ways to get more people engaged in voting was brought home with the government's dismal police and crime commissioner elections. “Less than one in six cast a vote — the lowest ever participation in a national election. “Labour is determined to open up politics and that is why we plan to seriously look at the possibility of votes at 16 in our policy review, which is set to inform Labour’s election manifesto in 2015.”

These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. If any provision in these terms and conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the remainder of them shall continue to apply.

(ii) The Company may require any alteration it considers necessary or desirable in an advertisement as a prior condition of its publication, whether or not such advertisement has been accepted or previously published. (iii) The Company will permit only standard abbreviations and no hyperlinks or metatags may be included in any advertisements save with the prior consent of the Company. 3 Placement of Adverts (i) Whilst the Company will endeavour to comply with reasonable requests from Advertisers, the Company does not guarantee the publication of any advertisement or its publication on any particular date or in any particular position.

(ii) In no event can orders be cancelled once the Company has commenced to carry out the order in accordance with the first publication date requested by the Advertiser. In other cases notice of cancellation must be received by the Company prior to the relevant current deadline. (iii) All cancellations must be notified in writing by post or fax. E-mail notice of cancellation is not acceptable. 5 Copyright (i) Copyright of all artwork, copy or other material created, reworked or contributed to by the Company shall vest in the Company. (ii) The Advertiser authorises the Company to record, reproduce, publish, distribute and broadcast (or to permit the same) all advertisements (including but not limited to text, artwork and photographs) and to include and make them available in any information service, electronic or otherwise. 6 Advertiser’s Property All artwork, photographs, leaflets, film or other property delivered by the Advertiser to the Company is held by the Company at the Advertiser’s risk and the Advertiser should insure all such property against loss or damage from whatsoever cause. The Company reserves the right to destroy without notice all such material after the date of its last use in connection with the publication of an advertisement, unless the Advertiser has given written instructions to the contrary. 7 Box Numbers (i) The Company will endeavour to forward all replies to a box number, to the Advertiser, as soon as possible after receipt, but the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage alleged to have arisen through delay in forwarding or omitting to forward such replies, howsoever caused. Box addresses must not be used for sending goods or materials of any value. The Advertiser authorises the Company to examine material passing through boxes and hereby authorises the Company to return to its originator or destroy any communication, which, in the opinion of the Company, should not be delivered to the Advertiser. (ii) Advertisements from dealers are not accepted under a box number, nor may a box number be used for the distribution of trade canvassing material. 8 Disclosing Information (i) All advertisements must be accompanied by the Advertiser’s full name and address and the Company may require evidence of authenticity of any advertisement. All trade advertisements must contain a trading name. (ii) The Company reserves the right to refuse an advertisement containing only a mobile telephone number unless the Advertiser discloses to them a BT land line number (or similar). (iii) The Company reserves the right to disclose the name and address of Advertisers if required by law or any regulatory or government authority or to other third parties where the Company, in its sole discretion, deems it reasonable. 9 Limitation of Company’s Liability (i) The Advertiser shall check the advertisement and notify the Company immediately in writing of any errors. The Company assumes no responsibility and shall not be liable for the repetition of errors in a series of advertisements unless it has received reasonable written notice from the Advertiser. (ii) In the event of any error, misprint or omission in the print-

ing of an advertisement or part of an advertisement (however caused) the Company will either re-insert the advertisement or relevant part thereof, or make a reasonable refund or adjustment to the cost. No reinsertion, refund or adjustment will be made where the error, misprint or omission does not materially detract from the advertisement. (iii) In no circumstances shall the Company’s total liability (including consequential liability) in respect of any error, misprint or omission exceed either the amount of a full refund of any price paid to the Company for the advertisement in connection with which liability arose, or the cost of a further or corrective advertisement of a type and standard reasonably comparable to that in connection with which liability arose. (iv) Save as set out in this paragraph 9, the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly as a result of the publication of any advertisement or any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly by any total or partial failure (however caused) of the publication of any advertisement in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications or internet sites in which the advertisement is scheduled to appear. 10 Assignment (i) The Company shall be entitled to assign its contract with the Advertiser or any of its rights or benefits thereunder. (ii) The Advertiser may not assign, transfer, sub contract, charge or in any other way deal with any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the Company’s prior written consent. 11 Data Protection Act (i) The Company will hold information it obtains in its dealings with customers to administer the Advertiser’s account, for statistical purposes, for debt collection and for fraud and crime prevention. If the Advertiser does not wish its information to be used for marketing purposes, it should inform the Company in writing. (ii) Telephone calls to the Company may be monitored or recorded for staff training purposes. 12 Advertising Agencies (i) An advertising agency, whether recognised or not, submitting an advertisement shall conform to the conditions laid down by the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising regarding observance of the provisions of the British Code of Advertising Practice and to the Standard Conditions for transactions of business between newspapers and advertising agencies as agreed between the Newspaper Society and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising. (ii) The terms of the Recognition Agreement between the Newspaper Society or between the Newspaper Society and the Newspaper Proprietors Association and recognised advertising agencies are deemed to be incorporated in these conditions of acceptance for the publication and transmission of all advertisements accepted from a recognised agency. Without prejudice to the foregoing, these conditions of acceptance specifically extend to any personal guarantee given by the directors of or any other person on behalf of a recognised agency in respect of any unsatisfied liabilities of the agency in the event of the agency’s liquidation or insolvency. Such guarantee is part of these conditions of acceptance. 13 Leaflets For the purpose of these terms and conditions, any leaflet or other publication or material distributed with any of the Company’s newspapers or magazines is deemed to be an ‘advertisement’, and references to the publication of such advertisements is deemed to be the distribution or insertion of such leaflet or other publication or material. PAYMENT TERMS FOR ADVERTISERS Orders for the insertion of advertisements are accepted subject to the following payment terms: 1 Rates (i) The Company reserves the right at any time to change the scale of advertising rates and to apply such rates to advertisements (series or otherwise) accepted and not wholly executed at the time of any such change. (ii) It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to bring to the Company’s attention at the time of booking any discount, allowance or exemption from Value Added Tax to which entitlement is claimed. (iii) All gross advertising rates (except classified lineage and semi display) are subject to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance levy from time to time (currently 0.1%) payable by the Advertiser to help finance the self-regulatory system. (iv) All rates and prices quoted by the Company are exclusive of Value Added Tax. 2 Advertising Agencies (i) Commission will only be granted to agencies formally recognised by the Newspaper Society or the Company at the time of placing the order. The rate of commission payable will be determined by the Company and may be carried or withdrawn at the Company’s discretion at any time, subject to giving the advertising agency seven days written notice thereof. (ii) All advertising agencies claiming commission must quote order numbers for every booking made. 3 Time of Payment (i) Unless credit terms have been agreed, pre-payment for any advertisement must be made in full no later than the relevant deadline. (ii) In the event that credit terms are approved, payment shall be made for each advertisement no later than thirty days from the date of the invoice for such advertisement. Should the Advertiser be in breach of these terms, or of any contract with the Company, then the full amount in respect of all advertising published and all other amounts accruing from the Advertiser shall become due and payable. (iii) The Company reserves the right to withdraw credit facilities from any Advertiser at the Company’s discretion. (iv) Payments by post must be by cheque or postal order made payable to the Company and crossed. All payments must be accompanied by the relevant invoice, statement or remittance advice issued by the Company. (v) Any query in respect of an invoice must be brought to the attention of the Company within seven days of its issue. The existence of a query on any individual item on an account shall not affect the due date of payment of any balance of such account. 4 Late Payments (i) The Company shall be entitled to charge interest on all sums due at a rate of 5% above the base rate for the time being of Barclays Bank plc until payment is received, after as well as before any judgment is obtained, together with compensation for late payment under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and regulations made thereunder. (ii) The Company shall be entitled to add to any sums due any reasonable costs and expenses (including administrative costs) incurred by the Company in obtaining payment thereof on an indemnity basis. (iii) The Company shall be entitled to charge the Advertiser ÂŁ15.00 in respect of any cheque tendered which is not met upon presentation (and to vary this charge at any time without notice). (iv) The Company reserves the right to exercise a lien over any documents or other property of the Advertiser in its possession if the Company’s charges are not paid in accordance with these terms and the Company’s rate card from time to time.

Making waves: Megan Exley shows off her skills on the water.

TALENTED ROWER, 16, EYED AS FUTURE OLYMPIC CHAMP BY GAIL ROBINSON A SCHOOLGIRL has been selected to take part in a special training programme designed to develop future Olympic champions. Megan Exley, 16, had never actually sat in a rowing boat before she decided to apply to the ‘Start’ programme which helped create Team GB’s most successful rowing team of all time.

But she was so impressive when taking part in strength and endurance trials that she was accepted. She is now doing some form of training seven days a week and told the Independent she has taken to rowing ‘like a duck to water’. Megan, who stands at five feet nine inches, says she is not ‘spectacularly tall’ but unusually her arm span is eight centimetres more than her height, which is considered a great attribute in all rowers.

The head girl at Hope House School, Barnsley, is a keen sportswoman and already plays netball and squash. She says she was inspired to search out details about the ‘Start’ programme after learning about it as she cheered on members of the Team GB rowing team. ‘Start’ supported rowers came away from London 2012 with five golds and a bronze and the haul was hailed as Team GB’s most successful Olympic Regatta of all time.

“It was brilliant and I was in tears as I watched some of the races and medal presentations,” said Megan, of Birdwell. “I had never been in a rowing boat and didn’t even know where my nearest rowing club was, but I knew I wanted to find out more and have a go.” She rows for a team in Doncaster which is one of the ten areas in the UK where Start projects are run and it is there that Megan is training on and

He then fought in the adult K1 division, which also allows kicks to the legs, head and body, and won bronze with a spin kick knockout.

off the water – and toughening up her hands. “You don’t see Olympians rowing in gloves,” laughs Megan. “It is very cold out on the water and your hands do hurt

and ache, but it is all part of the toughening up process. “If you want to be an Olympian you have to work hard and be dedicated and I’m prepared to do everything I can.”

TRAINING this horse has been a real pain for Michelle Steeples – so far she’s broken her back in three places, her foot, ribs and an elbow. But the hard work has paid off for Michelle and her feisty companion Jenta, after coming second in the horse’s first show jumping competition at Bromley Farm, Wortley. After ‘breaking most of the bones in her body’ and with an arm in a sling, Michelle is hoping to be back in the saddle for another two competitions taking place on Sunday and December 30. “It’s not been an easy one, I’ll give her that. she has been very hard to deal with. From being a real youngster she’s been a nightmare,” said Michelle, 30, of Shortwood Villas. She has kept horses for more than 20 years and has been show jumping since the age of nine. She bought the Warmblood horse about four years ago and keeps her at Bullwood livery in Tankersley, training with her five days a week. But the relationship has been a turbulent one to say the least. Michelle was thrown off her fiery fourlegged friend last year, breaking her back in three

places, and an ambulance had to be called out. She was unable to ride Jenta for six months but has now managed to rein her in with the help of trainer Mark Whitemore of Yorkshire Equine Academy. And with impressive jumps of 1.2 and 1.3 metres already, Michelle believes Jenta has the the ability to ‘make it to the top of the show jumping world’. Michelle said Jenta is of a strong blood line, and is

related to gold medal winner Nick Skelton’s horse Big Star that jumped for Team GB in London 2012. Despite her injuries Michelle has persevered because of Jenta’s ability. “It’s my dream; I’ve searched so long for a horse as talented as she is, it’s made me want to do it more.” Michelle is looking to take part in more competitions next year and has set her sights on the worldfamous Horse of the Year show in 2014.
