2 Men’s store aims to be snowed under FRANK Bird Menswear aims to be snowed under with customers thanks to its Christmas campaign. The business, which has a branch in the Arcade in Barnsley, is offering customers the chance to win back the cost of anything they buy from the shop until December 23. There is just one condition — that it has to snow on Christmas Day. Customers keep receipts from anything they buy from Frank Bird between December 1 and December 23 and then register on www.letitsnow.uk.com. Then they sit back and hope it snows on Christmas Day. If it snows over two centimetres at London Heathrow airport, Frank Bird will also refund any Christmas shopping done in the store from Christmas Eve to midnight on Christmas night.

GRANDSON KEEPS UP FARRIER TRADITION BY ADAM GUEST THREE men have forged a very special relationship – as three generations of farriers. Brian Mayes, 80, his son Roger, 53, and grandson Jack, 16, are all skilled in the art of horseshoe making and fitting. Brian started in 1946 and ran Foulstone Forge in Wombwell for 25 years before retiring ten years ago. He passed the skills on to his son and now it is Jack’s turn. The former Penistone Grammar School pupil has just finished a prefarriery and equine course at Myerscough College in Preston and will now take a four-year apprentice-

ship under the watchful eye of his dad at his forge off Lidgett Lane, Pilley. Roger says they make and fit horseshoes across Barnsley and he is very proud to carry on the skilled trade. “It’s nice to keep it in the family,” he said. Jack said: “It’s just family tradition, I like meeting customers and being out with the horses, I’m a physical, practical guy. “It’s physical hard work and the more experienced you get like my dad and my granddad it becomes natural to you.” Brian added: “I’m very proud, it’s an achievement to have three generations doing the same jobs and never being out of work.”

CASTLE’S LATEST REPAIR...
Essential work: Engineers work on the ceiling.
ONE of the most important repairs ever carried out inside Wentworth Castle was unveiled last Friday. The restoration of the ceiling of the Michael Barratt Brown room has cost £80,000 and been mostly paid for by the Country Houses’ Foundation. It was last summer when severe cracks appeared in the room which is named after the first principal of Northern College and is usually used as an IT room by students. Those cracks were so serious it was unsafe for classes to continue. Scaffolding was erected and investigations began to discover the extent of the damage and what could be done to repair it. But it was only when the ceiling and floor joists above it were revealed that the severity of the damage was uncovered. The defects were so severe it was impossible to preserve parts of the original 18th century structure and a new steel and timber floor had to be put in. Much of the history of Wentworth Castle has come to light during the project. Steve Croall, Northern College's head of estates and facilities, said: “We don’t know what the original plaster work was like. but this was one of the grandest rooms in the house.”
Cracked: Workmen fixing the ceiling.
Knitting fans create a Christmas purl BY GAIL ROBINSON MOST folk would not think of picking up their knitting needles when it is time to trim the Christmas tree. But that is exactly what the members of Wath WI did — and used their knitting skills to create the tree itself as well as all its decorations. The nimble fingered ladies have shown incredible skill and imagina-
tion to knit and purl the tree and then decorated it with knitted bunting and baubles and Santas and even knitted paper chains. Now the eight-feet high tree is gathering admiring glances in Wath library where staff say visitors have been incredulous at the novelty of the knitted tree. Every single piece of knitting that went into creating the finished product was made from spare wool the

ladies had just lying around. A local timber merchant donated a piece of wood that was used to create the solid spine of the tree which was then covered by knitted branches. When Christmas is over the ladies can either store the tree and its decorations for next year — or even pull it all out and start knitting the same wool again next year — the ultimate in recycling.

LAURA HOTFOOTS IT TO X-FACTOR TO JOIN RITA ORA ON STAGE BY KATIA HARSTON A DANCER from Carlton performed alongside singer Rita Ora at the XFactor live final last Saturday night in front of 10,000-strong crowd. Laura Amy White only found out she had the job as a backing dancer for the singer less than 24 hours before she was due on stage. The 25-year-old got the telephone call last Friday while on her way back from visiting a friend in Southampton and had to
hotfoot it to Manchester Central Arena to make rehearsals early the next day. “It was the most whirlwind 24 hours, it was so exciting, especially as I was not allowed to tell anyone what job I had been booked to do,” she said. “It’s definitely been the highlight of my career so far and the response has been insane. “I love X-Factor and I do watch the show so it was unreal to be on the other side of the camera.
“When I stepped on the stage and heard 10,000 people shouting and screaming, I was absolutely buzzing. “It was the best feeling looking up and there were the judges Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Tulisa (Contostavlos) and Nicole (Scherzinger). Nothing prepared me for that feeling. “I don’t tend to get nervous as I have been dancing all my life, but performing for a famous artiste was definitely nerve-wracking.” Laura rehearsed with Rita Ora all day Saturday before

the live show and said the singer was ‘lovely’. “She is very down to earth and worked so hard all day and there was no diva behaviour at all.” Laura runs The Dancebox Studio, on McLintock Way, Barnsley, and has been dancing for 23 years. She turned professional about three years ago after training ‘all over’ including at the Northern Ballet Theatre and Phoenix Dance Company, both in Leeds, and at the National School of Contemporary Dance.
Yorkshire legends to get in the scrum at charity match BY LYNSEY BRADFORD YORKSHIRE rugby legends will play against a team captained by Barnsley coach Andy Gilmore-Appleyard to raise money for charity.

German-born Sabine Little has decided to follow up art glass installations at Cannon Hall and Wentworth Castle Gardens by creating a large chandelier made from decorated wine glasses. The chandelier will be suspended
from the Rotunda, a former hunting lodge in the parklands of Wentworth Castle Gardens, in May next year. “I’m hoping the public will help me decorate the wine glasses, making the final result both colourful and owned by the community,” she said. “Brownies, schools, retirement homes, sports clubs, library events, I would love to work with as many local groups as I can. “It’s an activity suitable for all ages, similar to painting and drawing with

felt tip pens, and I am hoping that many of the participants will be able to visit the chandelier next spring.” The Rotunda will be the third structure at Wentworth Castle Gardens to feature one of Sabine’s works, and is part of her Arts Council-funded project ‘Follies for Follies’. The first wine glasses were decorated at Wentworth Castle Gardens’ Christmas fair, and Sabine, who moved to the UK in 1994, is now looking for groups interested in helping the chandelier grow. Earlier this year, Sabine created a Rapunzel sculpture for Stainborough Castle, then a mosaic portrait of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. ■ If you would like to be involved in Sabine’s chandelier project visit folliesforfollies.com or email Sabine – Ambitious project: Sabine Little. firstname.lastname@example.org

GRANTS TO BRING EMPTY HOMES BACK INTO USE PRIVATE homeowners in Barnsley whose properties have been empty for more than six months will be offered up to £15,000 by Barnsley Council to bring them up to standard so they can be used by council tenants. The authority has approved the financial assistance plan for private stock owners in an effort to bring long-term empty homes back into use and ease pressure on its social housing waiting list of 7,648 people. By accepting the financial assistance, homeowners will be required to enter a five-year lease agreement with the council for the
property and will receive an annual rent. A report by the council states the number of people waiting for housing demonstrates ‘the very real pressures’ faced by the town’s housing market. There are about 1,569 long-term empty (six months or longer) private sector properties in the borough and that is expected to rise as a result of repossessions, reduced sales and oversupply of newly-built flats and stalled housing projects. Coun Linda Burgess, who oversees development, environment and culture, said the council is planning to bring 12 empty homes back into use by the end of this year and another 17 in 2013/14.
Under a previous scheme, some 20 long-term empty homes were brought back into use. In order to increase that number the council made a bid to the Homes and Communities Agency for £160,000 which was accepted and will be used alongside £200,000 of council funds. Coun Burgess said: “There is a massive shortage of properties to let in Barnsley for social housing and there is a lot of private sector stock that’s empty and could be let out. Where they have been empty for more than six months in an area where we need houses there is an opportunity to spend up to £15,000 to bring them up to a decent state.
“But that’s also on the proviso that the private sector landlord signs an agreement to let out the property for five years which Berneslai Homes would manage. “The landlord would be paid an annual rent but they have to continue to fund any maintenance.” She said there are ‘all sorts of reasons’ why people leave properties empty and told the Chronicle it can be as simple as landlords not having finance to make a property suitable for letting. Coun Burgess said the financial assistance programme is a ‘great opportunity’ especially with so many people on the council housing waiting list.
Well deserved: Chief Superintendent Andy Brooke presenting Glen Howell with his Commander’s Commendation. Picture: Brett Carr. PD33505
Police award for Thurnscoe hero A THURNSCOE man who rescued two neighbours from a burning building received an award for his bravery. Glen Howell, 39, was awarded the Commander’s Commendation from South Yorkshire Police. Glen, of Peartree Avenue, said: “I’m really proud to accept this award – I’m gobsmacked. I wasn’t expecting it.” On September 22 Glen returned home and was alerted to a fire in a flat opposite his house, where a disabled man was trapped inside. Glen went in and lifted the man to safety. “When I found him he said he didn’t want to leave so I threw him over my shoulders and carried him to safety.” Glen re-entered the building with a neighbour to switch off the gas before helping the owner of the flat upstairs who was asleep and unaware of the fire. “Looking back it was dangerous but all that goes away in the moment.” Chief Superintendent Andy Brooke said: “I have no hesitation in this award for his courage and selfless actions.”

TWO WINS AT METRODOME BUT MALLIN FIGHTS TEARS AND BEN KNOCKED OUT BY ASHLEY BALL MATTHEW ‘Buster’ Mallin fought back tears from swollen eyes as he tried to explain why he lost over ten rounds to Sheffield rival Dave Fidler at the Metrodome.
Ben Davies after his win over Simon Jenkinson, above, and right Matthew Mallin, pictured on left, during his defeat to Dave Fidler.
Mallin lost his unbeaten record as Fidler pipped him to the decision by a mere point in a thrilling headline fight. “It was a bad night at the office,” said the 22-yearold light-middleweight from Stairfoot. “I’m absolutely devastated to have lost to a kid who’s nowhere near as talented as me. That was his world title fight and he’ll not get another shot at a title. The worst thing is that I let him have it and put it in the palm of his hand. It got to the sixth round and I was standing there and letting him hit me. “I don’t know why I didn’t turn up.” The early rounds saw Mallin set the pace but southpaw Fidler came more into the contest as the fight wore on and landed several left handed blows. Although not hurtful, clean blows sway rounds and the tight ones went Fidler’s way. The seventh deserved to be level with each fighter having dominating spells in a pulsating three minutes of action. Mallin had literally used his head and got two severe warnings for doing so but now wishes he used it in a different manner. He said: “Maybe it’s a mental thing with me. Maybe I thought it was going to be
easier than it was and lost my concentration. “I turned it into a war and I don’t know why I did it. At the minute I’m puzzled about it. It wasn’t how good he was, it was how bad I was and I still only lost by a point. It’s a blip and it means I come back better. I want the re-match to get it out of the way.” Monk Bretton’s Ben Wager suffered an even more traumatic night after being knocked out in sickening fashion by Jamaican Mark McKray. A steady opening saw Wager ahead but he let down his guard in the second round and was caught by a booming left hook and looked shaky upon getting back up. A succession of hooks sent Wager to the canvas again and forced the paramedics into the ring to administer oxygen. The light-welterweight was walking around after the show and seemed fine but it was a bad knockout against an opponent who had lost his last 15. Middleweight Ben Davies from Dodworth recorded a stoppage win against Bolton’s Simon Jenkinson. Davies dropped Jenkinson in the first round but an exciting second was more level. The fight turned completely back in Davies’ favour in the third with Jenkinson retreating under heavy fire before the referee stepped in. Gilroyd man Jamie Zaszlos won in the battle of the debutants against Luton’s Ricky Stock. Zaszlos drew blood in the third round but had the wherewithal to not go all out for a stoppage and in the end cruised to a 40-36 victory.
Third win: Simon Newton.
