Three generations of the Carnevale family have worked at long-established garage Denis Bray. Gerry Carnevale and his brother John bought the business from namesake Denis in the 1970s. Unfortunately, Gerry died in 2006 but today the business is run by his son and owner Neil who works alongside son Sam. Established in the 1950s, the business has become well-known throughout Barnsley for providing servicing, recovery and breakdown assistance, general repairs and specialist services. Neil said: “We outgrew the garage on Park Grove — where we had been since we were first established — and moved to Twibell Street in 2012.” Now located off Harborough Hill roundabout near the old Comet site, Neil and his team provide the same great customer service that has always been associated with the garage. Bigger premises have allowed them to expand their services to include class four and seven MOTs and extend the number of vehicles available to provide a breakdown service to stranded motorists anywhere in the country. Denis Bray’s prices are extremely competitive, with MOTs costing £30 and services starting at under £100 plus parts. Neil said: “We are reliable and have built up a good name in Barnsley. “If someone can’t get to us or needs us to drop a car off to make life easy, we’ll help.” It is this flexible approach to customer care that has earned them a loyal customer base and makes them a natural choice for servicing and repairs in the borough.

Top clairvoyant comes to Barnsley One of the UK’s top clairvoyants, Steve Holbrook, will be making an appearance at the Holiday Inn on Tuesday. Steve, who was formerly a hairdresser, says that he has been aware from being a child that life existed beyond the grave. He says he once awoke to find five soldiers marching through his bedroom. Steve started work in Leeds city centre in a busy hairdressing salon, and feels that the years he spent behind the chair, having that personal contact with customers, stimulated this rare, yet natural ability to hear the voices of spirits. G Steve will be at the Holiday Inn on April 1 at 7.30pm.

Nurse gears up for run A trainee nurse is gearing up for the Great Yorkshire Run in Sheffield to raise money for a mental health charity. Cheniece Shaw, of Sackup Lane, Barnsley, is running on September 28 in aid of Mind, a charity which helps people with mental health problems get back to their regular lives. The 22-year-old, who is studying to be a mental health nurse at York University, has seen the charity's work first hand through work experience placements and felt compelled to raise money for its cause. The annual run — which follows a 10km route through the streets of Sheffield — attracts thousands of people. Cheniece, who is running with her best friend, Amy Binney, also 22, said: “It is an essential service for people with mental health problems. Its work needs to continue so I want to raise money and awareness for such a great charity.” I For more information see http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiserweb/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?us erUrl=cheniecemarie

Advertiser’s announcement

Get healthier and slimmer with Change4Life RETIRED Darton man, Michael Hills, lost 35lbs after taking the free advice offered by the Barnsley Change4Life Weight Management Service, provided by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Before, 68 year-old Michael had a busy management job, but faced with his new more relaxed lifestyle, he decided to take action to stop him from piling on the pounds. "I hadn't been long retired and I thought if I don't do something I'll stagnate and get bigger and bigger," he said. It was purely by chance that he joined the Change4Life sessions, but he says that by making small changes, eating the right sized portions, reading labels and taking a walk of an hour to half-an-hour every day has made a big difference: "The big thing they (Barnsley Change4Life) teach you is the knowledge of food and looking at labels. I now eat a breakfast every day because it gets your metabolism going," he said, adding: "But I still treat myself to the odd drink or two at the weekend just like everybody else." Unlike other paid-for weight management services, Change4Life measures your weightloss in both pounds and confidence. Their 12 week course gives participants information about portion sizes, healthy versions of popular recipes and food groups, supporting you to make simple changes without the need for fad diets. Instead of depriving yourself of the things you love, Barnsley Change4Life gives you the knowledge to be able to monitor your portion size and calorie intake to make healthier decisions and lose weight.

After following their easy to understand, free advice, Michael found that he was able to lose the weight that even gym work had failed to shift: "At one stage I went to a gym but I didn't lose anything. I definitely felt fitter, but in terms of weight it barely did anything - that was the problem. "At this point in time I've lost two inches from my neck and four inches from my waist. It was probably 20 years plus since I was last in this size in my clothes." Those who want to register for the service can do so themselves, without the need for a GP or practice nurse referral. As Michael points out, Barnsley Change4Life support local people to maintain a long-term, healthy weight and are helping him to lose an extra 10lbs: "Even after you've achieved what you wanted to do, they don't forget about you - I still receive the emails. "When they (Barnsley Change4Life) rang me up to check on me one year later, I decided to go back. Now that I've reached a level they're going to help me get past it." For men who have retired and are thinking about joining the sessions, Michael has this advice: "My group was mostly women and of course, you feel daft at first, but if you want to do it and lose the weight you will. "Above all you've got to be honest with yourself, because if you don't you're not kidding other people, you're only kidding yourself." For further information about Barnsley Change4Life contact 737060, or visit the Change4Life website at www.change4lifebarnsley.co.uk. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Can you help to give Joey back his sight? A six-year-old terrier needs a £3,000 operation to stop him from becoming permanently blind. Joey, who is currently living at the Netherlands Rescue in Mexborough, is completely blind in one eye, and will go blind in the other one soon if he doesn’t have the operation this year. Joey has a cataracts on his eyes that needs to be treated by a specialist vet. Ann Taylor, of Barnsley and District Animal Welfare, said: “Joey has a lovely nature. He was taken in by the rescue as he was

found straying. “He is microchipped but when the ‘owner’ was contacted they said they had passed him on to someone else and they didn’t know where that person was living now. “It was later discovered that Joey could not see very well. “The vet has said that he needs operations on his eyes costing £3,000 to remove the cataracts. “The rescue does not have this kind of money and without the operation it is very hard to find Joey a home. What we really want is for Joey to find his sight

David Cameron promised he would protect the NHS. But on his watch A and Es are in crisis, thousands of nurses’ jobs have been lost, more people wait longer for vital care and billions have been spent on an I m p r ov i n g p r i va t e r e n t e d h o m e s unwanted top down reorganisation that nobody voted for. The cost of this reorganisation was reportedly £18m in Barnsley and £3bn nationwide. And after all this, David Cameron now wants to give his Health Secretary sweeping powers to close hospitals without proper consultation with local people. Clause 119 of the Care Bill has been nicknamed the ‘hospital closure clause’ because it leaves well-run hospitals in danger of being closed if one nearby gets into financial difficulties. The clause allows a trust special administrator to make recommendations affecting trusts other than that to which it has been appointed. This could include taking away services like A and E from that successful hospital or even shutting it. There would be minimum public Information Stands including: consultation and the government in Westminster will be able to go over • Barnsley Accreditation Scheme - Find out about the benefits the heads of local communities to of membership including a property grant of up to £500 close hospitals across the country, including Barnsley, if it wants to. • Empty Homes – Financial Assistance Options to bring The government recently properties back into use including grants up to £15,000 attempted to close down Lewisham subject to eligibility criteria and advice on private renting Hospital in London despite it being highly successful.

to give the Secretary of State powers that the High Court has denied them. Without the Liberal Democrats’ support none of this would be happening. Paul Burstow, a Liberal Democrat MP, was so concerned about Clause 119 that he tabled an amendment to limit its power. However, when it came time to call the amendment for a vote, not only did he fail to do so, leaving Labour to force a vote, he also voted against his own amendment. The Liberal Democrats continue to prop up David Cameron’s government – without them it would collapse. Where the Tories and Liberal Democrats have restricted the voice and input of local people, the next Labour government will take measures to empower them. We will make sure that more local people have a formal role in drawing up and deciding on proposals forchanges to maternity wards, A and E units or any other health service before they get to the consultation stage. Sometimes there is a need to change local services, but the government’s approach is wrong. Labour’s plans will give local people more of a say, build confidence in any proposals and help people understand the available options, as well as the clinical case for any change. The challenges facing health services are too complex to impose solutions from Westminster. Communities need to be involved actively in any decisions taken on the future of local health facilities and these decisions should be driven by the best interests of patients. Clause 119 is a major obstacle to achieving this which is why I will continue to fight it on behalf of people in Barnsley. The NHS is so important to us here in Barnsley. But David Cameron has proved again what we’ve always known – that you can’t trust the Tories with the NHS.

Wombwell’s Peace Legal has secured the Law Society’s law management quality mark, Lexcel, for the third year running. The Lexcel mark has been developed specifically for the legal profession. It is an optional, recognised accreditation scheme for law firms and in-house legal departments, which gives assurance that a practice meets high client care and business management standards. To gain and retain Lexcel accreditation a practice must undergo a rigorous initial application and assessment process, which is then repeated annually. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an experienced, trained Lexcel assessor. Steven Corry, practice manager of Peace Legal, said: “While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our clients and staff who are the main beneficiaries. “They can be assured that the way we manage the practice has their

interests at heart and runs efficiently. “There is a lot of choice in the legal services market but being Lexcel accredited demonstrates our commitment to client care and best practice.” Nicholas Fluck, president of the Law Society of England and Wales, said: “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is no mean feat. “There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including client care. “A commitment to customer service in today’s evermore competitive legal services market is vital. “By undergoing the rigorous Lexcel application and assessment process practices can show the positive steps they are taking to help clients in the increasingly diverse, complicated legal services market. “The scheme is a beacon of quality to clients and potential clients alike.” Peace Legal joins more than 1500 other legal practices in England and

Chief inspector, Andy Hodgkinson of South Yorkshire Police, said: “Best Bar None is an excellent opportunity for the Licensing Authority, the Town Centre Management Team and licensees to come together to improve standards, make venues safer for staff and customers and build trust between partners and licensees.”

It’s ‘Hearing Awareness Week’: There’s no need to suffer in silence... A high street retailer is calling on people in Barnsley not to suffer in silence when it comes to their hearing. Scrivens Hearing Care, Market Street, has organised a ‘hearing awareness week’ which will run until Saturday to encourage more people

to access free hearing checks in the branch. Hearing loss affects one in six people in the UK, more than ten million in total, but only around two million people seek advice. Scrivens Hearing Care hearing aid audiologist, Malcolm Hill

said: “Hearing loss isn’t just a problem for older people, it can affect people of any age so we would urge them to not be shy and drop in to see us for a free screening. “Having a hearing impairment isn’t an illness, nor is it a stigma and it’s never been easier to access free hearing checks and quality digital hearing aids.” The hearing event will run throughout the week and experts will be on hand to answer any questions, carry out free hearing checks and demonstrate the range of digital hearing aids available, which can be as small as a peanut. “Wearing a hearing aid should be as natural as wearing a pair of glasses,” said Malcolm. “We hope that our ‘hearing awareness week’ will

encourage lots of people to have a free hearing check and help normalise the use of hearing aids and highlight how easy it is to access community based hearing services.” Hearing changes gradually over time and it can be hard to tell whether you need some help. Here are five signs that you need to have your hearing checked: I Other people are always mumbling I Do people tell you the television or radio is too loud? I Talking on the phone is frustrating I Having a conversation somewhere noisy is impossible I You are constantly asking other people to repeat themselves.

Finished product: Bryan Amsell, left, and Wayne England examine the finished artwork.

Wayne finishes mammoth task IT’S taken four years and thousands of pots of paint, but artist Wayne England has finally completed 16 panels of wall art themed around the ancient Roman city of Herculaneum. As a freelance artist, Wayne, 51, has produced illustrations for comics, and games such as Dungeons and Dragons. But the results of the latest project in his employer’s Newark mansion are astonishing. The four-foot panels are all hand-painted, and depict Roman scenes featuring animals and objects and are surrounded by hundreds of

tiny blue love hearts. Wayne, of Belgrave Road, Oakwell, said: “It was a massive project but to do something on this scale is once in a lifetime." As a freelance, Wayne works for about 20 companies, and Bryan Amsell’s Games Workshop is one of them. Wayne would spend hours working on the panels, which were painted straight on to the wall as opposed to on an easel, sometimes starting as early as 6am and finishing as late as 10pm.

WASTE COLLECTION Q&A

Your bin questions answered Everyone living Barnsley has seen changes to their waste and recycling collections this month. It’s a huge change to roll out to all 100,000 houses and has caused some confusion, disruption, and lots of questions. Barnsley Independent Today asked the councillor responsible for the service, Roy Miller, to answer some of the most-asked questions... Q: Why are all these changes being made to bin collections? A: The Environment Agency need us to collect garden waste and cardboard separately because of the way these materials are recycled. We needed to make this change to collections in the most cost effective way, while improving our collection service. The cost of giving every household a recycling sack is £100,000, compared with a cost of £1.8million to give every household an extra recycling bin. Q: How do I know when my collection day is? A: You should have received a leaflet with your collection details on. Your personal collection details are also on our website. We’ve

changed the login this week to make it easier and quicker for you to find out your collection day. Q: How much money will these changes save? A: The changes will save £700,000 per year. That’s equivalent to around 30 jobs, and goes towards the £26million savings we have to make over the next two years in response to government cuts. Q: What am I allowed to put in each bin? A: Your brown bin is for glass, cans and plastic bottles. Your blue bin is for cardboard, and your white sack is for paper. Q: I haven’t received a leaflet, how can I get one?

A: All leaflets and sacks should now have been delivered. A small number of people have told us they’ve not received theirs, so we’re making these extra deliveries. You can access your collection information on our website. Q: I can’t get through on the waste services telephone line A: The demand is really high at the moment, so you could be kept waiting. The quickest and easiest way to find out the information you need is by visiting our website. This is being updated and improved on a daily basis. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can email us. Q: I’ve ordered bins for delivery, when will I get them? A: Our recycling bins

"I'm fit and well, I don't need to see a doctor..." If you're aged between 40 and 74, and fit and well, you might never need to go to see your doctor - but wouldn't it be good if you could have a check-up which looks for the early signs of illness? "My health check gave me great peace of mind" Barnsley Health Checks is a free service offered by every GP practice which aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. People who haven't already been diagnosed with one of these conditions will be invited (once every five years) to have a health check. If your doctor finds that you're at risk then you'll be given support and advice to help you reduce or manage that risk. "I had received a letter from my doctor inviting me for a health check,” says Julie. “My father had a heart attack and I knew I didn’t have a healthy lifestyle. It had been a worry to me that I would also have one but I have never done anything about it and I felt it would have been silly for me to miss the opportunity. “I had two appointments. The

first with the health care assistants, who checked my fasting bloods, weighed me, took my height, pulse and blood pressure and asked some general questions about my lifestyle. “Two weeks later, I had an appointment with the practice nurse who had looked at my blood test results and calculated my ‘score’. She spent time explaining what it all meant and what effects my lifestyle was having on my health, including high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We then talked through my options for medication and the simple changes I could make to my lifestyle.” The advice Julie received supported her to make some big changes to her lifestyle. “This helped to push me into making some changes. I now take a lot more exercise. I have lost nearly four stone in weight and my doctor has now reduced the strength of my cholesterol tablets.” Ask your doctor or practice nurse about your free health check when you next visit, or if you receive an invitation to attend a health check, make sure you go along.

In the meantime, you can leave any extra waste out by the side of your bin in a bag or box, and we’ll collect it. Q: I’m swapping my bins for the larger size, what do I do with my smaller bins? A: If you’ve ordered a larger brown or blue bin please make sure that your smaller bins are available for collection. We can then deliver the smaller recycling bins to people who’ve ordered them.

SPRING DAYS

Some useful tips for your spring clean Spring days are here and light is pouring in through the windows once again. With this in mind, many of us will be itching to don our rubber gloves and get down to a spot of spring cleaning. We consulted some of Barnsley’s cleaning experts to get their top tips. Ovenclean’s Steven

Bell explains how to get barbecues and ovens sparkling: “Shop bought chemicals will clean ovens and barbecues effectively with a little elbow grease, however, repeated use can cause lasting damage and should not be applied to elements within the oven,” he says. “It is better to use non-caustic chemicals as these mean there

aren’t any fumes or odours during cleaning and are better for metals. Wire brushes can be used to remove grease or dirt on harder to reach areas. He warns it is important to remember to never use cleaning chemicals on selfcleaning panels as it will damage them. Looking to declutter your home or get rid of window smears? Louise Laughton, of Clean Bee, has some practical tips: “One tip when de-cluttering would be to start with three empty boxes,” she says. “Starting off small will focus you on the task. Have one box for charity, one for rubbish and one for keeping. “Using newspaper and white vinegar on windows gets rid of

smears and saves money. Methylated spirit diluted with water will work well too.” But if you want to get technical about your cleaning, British Institute of Cleaning Science qualified Caroline Findlow of Cawthorne Property Services has the answer: “My top tip for anybody would be to use microfibre cloths,” she says. “Yellow dusters just spread your dust around. Microfibre cloths are better for grabbing your dust and getting rid of it. They

have an electrostatic charge which attracts it. “You can also wash them in the washer at 90 degrees up to 500 times — they’re very cost effective. You can’t use bleach or fabric softener with them though as it ruins the electrostatic charge,” she added. Caroline also has a top tip for ridding microwaves of odours and bad smells: “Get a bowl of hot water and put half a lemon in it. Put it on for 30 seconds or so and it will get rid of any nasty niffs.”

SPRING DAYS

There are lots of fun activities for all the family to enjoy This Spring no-one needs to be bored as there are plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy at local attractions. Wentworth Castle and Gardens’ spring fair on April 6, is the perfect opportunity to buy a gift for yourself or someone special. With 30 stalls, free admission and car parking, it is the perfect opportunity to take a stroll and soak up the atmosphere of the castle and its grounds. If your kids are the adventurous type, how about letting them live

in the woods for the afternoon? Activities include learning how to light a fire, build a shelter and test survival skills. Kids can set up camp in the stunning grounds of Stainborough Park, exploring the woods and learning with family.  Tickets for children are £10 and accompanying adults go free. For children with a sweet tooth, an Easter egg hunt set in the gardens of magical Wentworth Castle could be a dream come

true. They are challenging kids to find all the eggs in the garden to win a prize. The Easter egg hunt will be in the gardens from April 18 until April 21. If you fancy picking up a bargain or a couple of knickknacks for the home, visit Elsecar Heritage Centre’s antiques fair on April 13. A full programme of events leading up to this summer’s heritage festival is also on offer at the heritage centre, with activities for kids and Spring fun events running from April 14 until April 17. Yorkshire Sculpture Park will be running a family chocolate workshop on April 19, for budding Willy Wonkas to create their own chocolate sculptures.  The workshop costs £3 for adults and

children, but includes all of the materials needed to create your chocolate masterpiece. The ‘Museums at Night’ project is running throughout Yorkshire in May, with hundreds of museums, galleries and libraries opening up to the public after hours. The project will see the sculpture park throw its doors open to visitors for a night-time safari on May 17.  Tickets to the event will cost £9 for adults and £6 for kids and include a Land Rover tour of the park after dark.

The place to visit: Wentworth Castle Gardens are running some egg-citing events this Easter.

much admired Georgian and Victorian gem in Staincross is looking for new owners to add to its quirky charm. Woodview Farm on Paddock Road has original features from almost every period in its history, with the main house dating back to between 1792 and 1805. Current owner Lynn Wilson bought the property with her late husband Dennis in 1993. She said: “My husband had been driving past on his way to work and and said ‘one day we’ll buy that’, and we did.” Once located in the grounds of Staincross Hall, the seven-bedroom property started out as a detached farm house but has been extended twice and now spans five levels, not including its vaulted cellar. “It was a detached house, but in

Today it is still a semi-detached property, but Lynn and Dennis, a local builder, decided to further extend to the side of the main house in 2000. She said: “We went out for a walk on Boxing Day to buy a loaf of bread and bought the school in Mapplewell. They were demolishing it at the time. My husband was a builder and used the bricks from the school to build our extension.” The extension to the property has many charming additions including a stone archway framing the through garage and a porthole window. In 2002 the couple won a design award from Barnsley Council for their sympathetic extension to the property which is in keeping with the surrounding buildings. ®

The house is packed with period features and elements of Woodview’s Victorian and Georgian heritage are evident in almost every room. “One of the reception rooms still has the original moulding in it and a Georgian ceiling rose,” said Lynn. “Even the architrave round the doors is original. When we came the architrave had been boarded up and we exposed it. “The front bedroom has wainscot panels but at some point someone put a false wall in front of it, so they’re behind it, waiting to be exposed. We know that they must be behind that wall because in the box room they’re still there. We’ve taken a lot of care to get the house to this point, but the thing that really sells the house is the outside space.” The farm house has multiple outbuildings and lots of outdoor space comprising of workshops, storage space, two garages, stables and paddocks – including a training paddock, accessible down a path to the side of the property – perfect for home businesses or horsey types. “I estimate it must be a good three-quartersof-an-acre at least,” said Lynn. “I live not far from

Plunge into water gardening Spring is here, temperatures are rising and most of us will be thinking about venturing outdoors. Starting work on your garden now will mean it is in top condition come the summer. One way to add interest and create an oasis of cool calm on balmy days is to add a pond or water feature to your garden. First of all you will have to decide what kind of water feature you want. If space is limited, choose a water feature in a bucket or barrel and remember solar fountains do away with the need for an electricity supply. Ready-made plastic or fibre glass ponds can be purchased at most large garden centres, making it quite simple and easy to create a pool where koi or Japanese carp can add flashes of gold to the garden. Wet conditions will allow gardeners to grow many plants that thrive in or near the water. Japanese water iris, water lilies and water hyacinths are all good choices. Whatever you decide, an open sunny site is best, away from overhanging trees to avoid problems. Once established, your pond or water feature should look after itself, leaving you to enjoy it.
