Scheme to send soldiers box of treats GIFT boxes are being prepared to send to troops in Afghanistan for Christmas. Specsavers Barnsley is organising ‘Build a Box’ and is asking people to hand donations of items to put into the store from tomorrow until November 13. They are running it because dispensing manager Nicki Chadwick has two sons in the Royal Signals, Corporal Luke Chadwick, who returned from Afghanistan in February, and Lance Corporal Matthew Chadwick, who is serving there. A spokesman said: “The branch held the same event last year and so greatly appreciated by the troops that Luke and Matthew said to their mum, ‘You’ve got to do it again’.” Items can include toiletries, magazines, puzzle books, wet wipes, gloves, foot powder and non-perishable food.

OLYMPIC bobsledder, Fiona Harrison returned to her old school to talk about life on the ice. Fiona, 30, spoke to children at St Helen’s RC Primary in Hoyland and was interviewed by pupils as part of their Barnsley Sporting Heroes

project. St Helen’s is the first in the scheme which involves eight primary schools in Barnsley. The Great Britain squad member showed the children a video of her in a bobsleigh and clips of a bobsleigh run. Children then had a go at steering along with the video clip. Sporting stars from across the

borough will be popping into schools to talk about their sport and their achievements. Barnsley school children will then contribute artwork and a self-made DVD for an exhibition at the new Experience Barnsley Museum in the town hall. Head teacher Phil Harrison said: “Fiona was absolutely wonderful.

“Some of the children interviewed her for the film we are making and the media company we have been working with were very impressed with the way the children interviewed her. “It was great to see Fiona as she was a pupil here.” The project runs until December and the work will be on show next summer.

Vapour trail: Landlady at the Anglers Rest in Wombwell Simone Foster-Jowett and Russell Ord with an e-cigarette.

LIGHTING UP IN PUB IS NOT JUST HOT AIR A PUB has found a way around the smoking ban – with electronic cigarettes. The Anglers Rest in Wombwell hosted an event by the Campaign for Vaping (Camvip) last week. About 30 people turned up to smoke indoors there for the first time in four years. ‘Vaping’ or ‘e-smoking’ involves the use of an electronic cigarette, pipe or cigar, in which a liquid containing nicotine is heated up to a gas and releases vapour when inhaled. It is not classified as smoking under the law and Camvip founder Russell Ord, 44, of Overdale Road, Wombwell, said it could revive many establishments suffering from a combination of recession, supermarket offers and the smoking ban. He said: “I set up this campaign

because I want to get people back into traditional pubs and clubs with ecigarettes. But a lot of people either haven’t heard of them or are reluctant to buy them so the idea is to give them a go free. “It was like going back in time. The room was full of ‘smoke’ and there was such an atmosphere.” Deborah Arnott, of Action on Smoking and Health said the organisation does not oppose people using e-cigarettes but that it recommends nicotine inhalers instead. She said: “Smoking is so dangerous that almost anything by comparison is safer, but e-cigarettes are not properly regulated like medical nicotine so you don’t know what’s in the vapour. “Nicotine inhalers may not look as much like a cigarette but you know how much nicotine you’re getting and they’re safe and easy to use.”

HOSPITAL FACES CUTS BARNSLEY Hospital will try to make £7.5m savings without shedding staff, its chief executive has pledged. The trust is set to lose five per cent of its annual £150m budget to meet government targets for 2012. Chief executive Paul O’Connor said he hoped it could be achieved without compulsory redundancies. “The reality is we are being asked to do more with a population that’s a

little bit older and sicker, with less money,” he said. Last year we were upfront about the problem and that we wanted to meet it without making any compulsory redundancies. “We worked very hard with the staff side to achieve it and that is the aim for next year as well.” He said the key to making savings was not to ‘trim the edges’ but to improve partnerships with other health organisations, the council, and the

voluntary sector. He said the hospital had to do more to create a healthier Barnsley by working in the community ‘rather than reacting when people were sick’. Sharing expertise and resources with other hospitals was also needed to make health care more efficient. Cancer treatment where patients get referred to Sheffield for specialist treatment, was a successful example of this practice. “We have to be realistic and a medium sized hospital like Barnsley does not have a future supplying every service. “For simple conditions

patients could be cared for close to home and more complex ones at a tertiary centre.” He admitted the job was getting harder for staff but was confident the hospital could meet the challenges. “I think it gets tougher for staff each year. You are asking people to think differently as well as the volume that you get through. “It’s also tougher because we are more and more successful. People are living longer and ten years ago you had problems that are now solvable but it requires a lot of work. I understand that people here work damn hard.”

Hard on the heels of a show at The Civic celebrating the ingenuity of designers in the South American country comes ‘Jewels from Brazil’ at the Cooper Gallery. Mana Bernades uses marbles, plastic net bags, wooden splints, polythene ropes and stuff sometimes salvaged from bins. The jewellery is a reminder that rubbish can be beautiful. Steel,

iron, copper, wood, resin seeds and glass are harnessed by Miriam Korolkovas to stunning effect. Tiana Santos uses plastic to make brown, blue and green necklaces. The show features 18 jewellery designers from nine Brazilian states. We are lucky to see the best of Brazil in Barnsley. I ‘Jewels from Brazil’ runs until October 27 and ‘Creation, Beauty, Hope’ is on until January 21.

PHIL APPLAUDED FOR LIFE-SAVING ACTION BY IAN THOMPSON A WORKER at a Dodworth firm brought a disabled man back to life. Phil Upcraft, 50, a health and safety officer at Norec on Fall Bank Industrial Estate, administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and pumped the chest of Alan Bradstreet, 69, who had no pulse and had stopped breathing. Mr Upcraft and a passerby Charlotte Hulm were joined by an off duty nurse. After 15 minutes of taking it in turns to revive Mr Bradstreet, the nurse said ‘Phil, I’ve got a pulse’. A crowd at the incident in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, where Phil was visiting friends and family, burst into applause.

The lifesavers: Phil Upcraft, left, and Charlotte Hulm, right, with Alan Bradstreet.

Cops set for games BETWEEN 14 and 21 police officers from Barnsley will be involved with the Olympics at any one time. Chf Insp for Barnsley, Shaun Morley, said South Yorkshire Police had been asked to send resources to help police the games in London. He said Barnsley would send no more than 21 officers at one time

and it was likely to be between 14 and 21. Chf Insp Morley said: “That will not affect the operational service we supply to the people of Barnsley.” He said they have a year to plan for the games in terms of rotas. Chf Insp Morley said: “One question raised is who is paying but that will be met by central government at no cost to South Yorkshire or Barnsley police.”

Mr Upcraft and Mr Bradstreet and his wife Pamela met again when Norec, which supplies services to power stations, presented Mr Upcraft and his wife Carol with a weekend in Thirsk, North Yorkshire. Mr Upcraft is no stranger to emergencies. He used his 4x4 to shield another

motorist whose car had richocheted off a barrier into a slip road on the M180. During the floods in 2007, he pumped out homes in Immingham. A Norec spokesman said; “Phil is a trained first aider. “Talk about being in the right place at the right time.”

CALL FOR BOLLARDS AT ‘SKIDPAN’ BLACKSPOT BY KATIA HARSTON THE MOTHER of a teenager whose car careered off a road and landed upside down in a field wants bollards put up to prevent it happening again.

Safety concerns: One of the cars which has skidded on Ben Bank Lane near Silkstone Common.

Gail Bristowe, of Oxspring, has spoken out about the dangers of Ben Bank Road, Silkstone Common, after her 19-year-old daughter Shelley lost control of her MG ZR in the rain on a bend. Gail said there were three more accidents in the same spot in a week. She was told by police it is a ‘skidpan’ blackspot and is calling for bollards to be erected to stop cars from going over the wall. “If there were bollards on there that would go some way to making it safer and stop cars from flipping over into the field because that’s

what kills people. “Why has nothing been done?” “Luckily my daughter is alive and I am thankful for that, but what about next time this happens? Maybe that person won’t be so lucky.” Gail said there was a shunt as motorists slowed to look at her daughter’s car wreck and another motorist had skidded and landed in the field last Sunday. “I’ve been told by the police it is a skidpan corner. The council has just resurfaced the road near the bad bend, and where the two surfaces join it leaks oil. With the wet weather it creates a skidpan. “It’s just like driving on black ice apparently. My sister lives in Silkstone Common and she said there’s been so many accidents and deaths on that road in the last ten

She was squashed between the dashboard and the roof but managed to find a mobile phone in her pocket to call an ambulance. But she didn’t know the name of the road and a motorist travelling behind her ran into the field to help and told paramedics where she was. Shelley was cut out of the car by fire crews and put on a stretcher before being taken to hospital. She suffered minor injuries. A Barnsley Council spokesman said its highways engineering department will inspect the site. He added: “Until any police investigations are concluded no further comment can be offered.”

‘FIRE STATION CLOSURE COULD AFFECT SAFETY’ BY KATE PICKLES PLANS to shut a part-time fire station in Barnsley could affect public safety, a councillor has warned.

Dog whisperer: Kerry Floody with Milly the dog.

Expert to the rescue KENNEL staff are hoping you can teach an old dog new tricks. Milly, nine, has spent nearly three years at rescue kennels after her owners could not cope with her behaviour. Now Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity is hoping to bring a dog behavioural expert in to help train the terrier-cross. “Milly is an affection-

ate girl once she trusts someone but does growl at strangers and will bite if cornered,” said BARC’s Kath Bailey. “Because of these issues Milly has been overlooked. We have found a last chance of helping her and finding her a good home but it comes at a cost.” To help call 01709 876832.

Royston station is earmarked for closure as part of proposals by South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue to save £10m a year. The fire authority will meet later this month to discuss it and other cost cutting measures needed because of the anticipated cut to government funding. Coun Graham Kyte said he was shocked to learn about the closure as it had only become a retained

fire station when Cudworth opened last year. “I’m a reasonable man and I didn’t object to them putting Royston on a part-time basis when they built the new one at Cudworth. Royston was in the wrong place for one that size,” he said. “However, if the powers that be thought a retained fire station was needed at Royston less than two years ago when the new one was built, why the change now? “What does that mean for fire cover for the people of Royston? “If they are saying it’s not needed any more then I don’t accept

that. I’m very concerned about what this will mean and will immediately start making enquiries about it. “I find the closing of any public service regrettable and I think this government is entirely on the wrong track.” The station is staffed by on-call ‘retained’ fire-fighters. But SYFR said it attended ‘relatively few’ incidents and the area was well covered by the full-time crews of Cudworth and Barnsley. SYFR had previously announced management and administration costs will be cut by a quarter to help protect front-line services but

that will only save £2.8m per year. A spokesman for the fire authority said it regretted that changes would have to be made. “We don’t want to make these changes but as professional officers we have researched the options to save money while having minimum impact on the public. “After the authority has made in-principle decisions there will be a full public consultation period before final decisions are made. “We would be happy to hear any alternative proposals as to how we can make £10m per year of savings.”

A POSTMAN has set off on a 142-mile journey on his bike in aid of Barnsley Hospice. Robert Cartwright, 26, of Ballfeild Lane, Kexbrough, is doing the coast-to-coast challenge from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. It will take him between 15 to 20 hours depending on the weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I go out a couple of times a week on my bike but I keep fit generally, playing foot-

ball and I go to the gym everyday,â&#x20AC;? said Robert. He started his journey at 5am yesterday and aims to raise about ÂŁ1,000 for Barnsley Hospice. Robert, who works in Barnsley, said the ride was all off-road. His friend Jonathan Foster is helping him along the way, meeting him every 20 miles for bike spares and food.
