Campaign to halt cable plan CAMPAIGNERS are making a lastditch appeal to transport bosses to join the fight against an underground power cable scheme – which they say ‘rules out’ a major rail development ever taking place – before the deadline for objections on Friday. Members of the Grand Northern Group want to stop the National Grid project to remove pylons and replace them with underground cables. They say the project would scupper plans to reopen the Woodhead rail line as a zero emissions track. National Grid has officially publicised its intentions and people and organisations can still lodge objections until Friday. GNG says it is vital the scheme does not go ahead along the trackbed of the defunct Woodhead line near Dunford Bridge. Julian Newton, chief executive of GNG, a group of like-minded businesspeople and engineers who want to head off the impact of climate change, said: “We want to rebuild the Woodhead line and create a major conduit linking the north-west with the north-east at no cost to the taxpayer. “This would be a rolling highway which would remove huge chunks of traffic from the roads. “However, it is with a heavy heart

that we see National Grid are proceeding with plans to install cables in the trackbed of the Woodhead line east of the Woodhead tunnels at Dunford Bridge. “If National Grid get their way that, I fear, will be it. The Woodhead railway line will be lost forever.” He said to reverse the National Grid scheme would cost around £125m, with additional costs to find alternative sites and re-erecting pylons. The group says that intervention by Transport for the North could bring the project to a halt. But TfN says its position is ‘neutral’ and it has no reason to respond to the planning application. Naturalist Doug Brown, of Silkstone Common, has also been challenging the plans which he fears could destroy flora and fauna – especially a muchloved nature reserve. “It is quite a project and would disrupt this section of the TPT for a long time,” said Mr Brown, a member of Barnsley Naturalist Society. “But what concerns me is the wildlife aspect. Orchids have become established and presumably these and other species will go. “At the end is also Wogden Foot nature reserve and this scheme will really destroy that.” Email sales@roundbrand.co.uk Open Monday-Friday: 8.30am-5pm Sat: 9am-12noon All prices inc.

INBRIEF... Plan is formalised A RETROSPECTIVE planning application has been submitted for the new restaurant and bar adjoining the new town centre library – almost four months after it opened. Falco Lounge was built alongside the Library @ the Lightbox, opening at the end of May ahead of the opening of the library. Falco Lounge was built with planning permission for ‘ancillary café associated with the new library’, but the new application seeks to formally change that to a separated restaurant/café, formally recognised as ‘A3’ use, allowing for the sale of food and drink for consumption on the premises. However, the council said the application seeks to formalise existing ‘ancillary uses’, meaning that the Lounge does already have planning permission for its current use, with the A3 consent being ‘a formality’.

Crime crackdown MORE than 150 police officers flooded Barnsley as part of the ‘most successful’ anti-crime action day ever held in the town. Operation Duxford united officers from across South Yorkshire for a targeted day of action. A total of 17 people were arrested for a variety of suspected offences including possession with intent to supply, possession of weapons, failing to appear at court, failing to stop and driving while disqualified.

Ex-Red rocked by violent attack A BARNSLEY footballing legend has spoken of the harrowing moment he was assaulted as he went for a meal with friends, in what he believes was a case of mistaken identity. Ian Banks, a skilful midfielder who played more than 300 games in two stints for the Reds in the 1970s and 80s, was out celebrating a friend’s 60th birthday with his wife Kaye at the Olive Lounge, a tapas bar and restaurant in Wickersley, Rotherham, on March 2. But as he checked for the group’s taxi home, Ian was attacked twice – once inside the bar and again as he was standing on the pavement. “There was a bang and suddenly he was laid at my feet,” said Kaye, 53, who lives with her husband in Brampton. “Then there were two bouncers coming over. I was frantic. I went outside to find someone in our party and the bouncers wouldn’t let me back in, and then I saw an ambulance coming up the road and had this horrible feeling. “There was blood pouring down the street. I thought he was dead.” Ian said he doesn’t remember much from the night, despite going

back to the bar to review CCTV footage with Kaye following the attack. “Me and Kaye were stood with the bouncers, and I’d got blood all down the back of my head,” said Ian, 58, who now works as a mortgage advisor. “And I said, ‘I can’t even remember that’. “I remember going into the toilet, and then waking up in the ambulance for two seconds, and then waking up again in hospital.” Ian discharged himself from Rotherham Hospital the following day, and after some CT scans and seven stitches in the back of his head he was allowed to leave. He said he didn’t realise the extent of his injuries: “I thought, if my chest and brain don’t have anything wrong then I’m going home. “But I kept going dizzy all the time, I couldn’t even lay on my left side. “I couldn’t close my mouth and couldn’t eat for three days.” Ian, an apprentice at Oakwell who made his debut at 18, said his recovery has taken a while – but the psychological effects may never fully disappear. “I wouldn’t say I’m back to how I was,” he said. “I still don’t think

I’m there psychologically. “The scars have healed but the scars in your brain don’t heal. “If I see a gang of four or five lads I give them a swerve. “We don’t even go out that often, I’d rather sit at home with a drink. “But we must’ve been sat downstairs at 3.30am for two or three weeks, just having a cup of tea, because I didn’t want to go to bed. “It’s affected my concentration, and I suffer with fatigue and tiredness. I used to go running but now I just can’t motivate myself to do it. “I’ve been looking at it philosophically. I was unlucky in some ways but lucky in others.” Ian and Kaye have grown increasingly frustrated with what they see as a lack of communication from police. “Initially I had heard nothing for two weeks, no one even asking if I was all right,” said Ian. “I’m getting so frustrated. I need some answers for closure. “This guy has done that and I’m being punished.” A South Yorkshire Police spokesman confirmed a man had been taken into custody following the incident, but no charges have yet HORROR INJURIES: Ian Banks after the attack in Wickersley. been made. STUDENTS from Barnsley College are raising funds by making over volunteers for an art and drag show. Drag it Art, which takes place on October 11 at the Metrodome, is a collaboration of top drag queens and cabaret acts, music from BA Funk and a camp disco. To raise money for Barnsley Hospice, drag queens will work with local students to makeover six volunteers and turn them into drag queens. Raychel McGuin, the event organiser, said: “I am so grateful to the people who have supported so far. “I could have chosen to do any kind of event, but I decided to go big. As a body painter I wanted to involve the amazing artists that I work with from The Midlands Bodypaint Project. “To add to the glitz and glamour I decided to incorporate drag queens.” Raychel is looking for six volunteers for the makeover which will help raise money for the hospice.

Software’s success

‘UNIQUE’ software developed in-house by Barnsley Council has led to the council receiving £80,000 to look at rolling it out to other councils. Local authorities use income management systems (IMS) to organise the vast array of payments they receive from businesses, partners and citizens which can take various forms, physical and digital, and are paid for different reasons – including blue badges, parking fines and residential fees. Barnsley Council had, like many local authorities, been in a long-term contract with a software supplier to manage its income. But when the contract ended last year, the council’s IT and finance departments took the plunge to ‘build over buy’ – developing a bespoke system from scratch. Coun Jenny Platts said: “We are pleased to have received funding from the Local Digital Fund to explore how we help councils adopt cost-effective payment and management systems, and look forward to collaborating with our partner councils on this exciting project. “To be chosen for this project shows the talented and inventive teams we have at Barnsley Council who continue to move ideas forward in cost-effective ways.”

MPs’ ads removed by Facebook after breaching new rules

SADNESS: Pupils pay their respects as the funeral cortege passes Darton Academy.

Schoolboy Lucas died in his sleep FRIENDS and classmates lined up outside a school to pay their respects to a 14-yearold boy whose devastated parents say went to bed healthy but ‘never woke up’. A Lamborghini led the funeral procession of supercar-mad Lucas Fleetwood on Wednesday, taking a detour past Darton Academy, where friends and teachers gathered outside. Lucas (pictured right), of Brattice Way, Mapplewell, died on September 6 after going to bed following his first day back at school. His mum went to wake him for school the next morning and he was unresponsive. Emergency services were called but he could not be revived. Lucas had just returned from a family holiday in Majorca and had enjoyed showing his younger brother Oliver, 11, around his new school that day. His death came as a complete shock to the family, who still don’t know why he died. Lucas was cremated on Wednesday and his parents Daniel and Stacey, not wanting a traditional resting place for his ashes, decided

they wanted to create a memorial garden for the family to go to remember Lucas, as well as a place for other bereaved parents to use in future. Daniel said: “Lucas was a fantastic big brother to Oliver and his youngest brother Carter, six. “We are heartbroken by his death but me and Stacey knew straight away that we didn’t want Lucas to be buried surrounded by death. “We wanted somewhere tranquil and private where we can go and remember our son. It will also serve as a place for people to remember their children and we want it to be a comforting area, not a place associated with death and horribleness.” Daniel began looking for land where he could create Lucas’ Gardens – an area of remembrance for children. Currently there are no areas in Barnsley that have a memorial space specifically for children. “We have found a place and we hope to develop this into Lucas Gardens, and we feel it is perfect for us. “For other families who will have to go through this tragedy, we hope it will serve as a won-

Housing plan passed A FORMER pub is set to be converted into housing after planning permission was granted. The Angel, on the junction of Angel Street and High Street, Bolton-uponDearne, has been the subject of an application to build eight properties – four three-bed houses, one three-bed bungalow and one two-bed bungalow, as well as converting the pub into two three-bed houses

– since the start of this year. In that time the pub was repeatedly targeted by vandals. Security had to be tightened while a decision was made. While concerns have been raised over the loss of yet another pub in the Dearne as well as parking, loss of outlook for neighbouring properties and the moving of bus stops, the plans received approval.

don’t feel it’s real but this project is giving us something to focus on. Lucas loved being outside and in the garden so I know he will love this idea.” Daniel set up a Just Giving page to raise funds towards Lucas’ Gardens, and so far he has raised over £6,500. Daniel said: “The funding will allow us to landscape the gardens and purchase benches, shrubbery and a stone welcoming people into the garden. It’s not going to resemble a graveyard and we hope it will bring comfort to many families in the years to come.” One of the businesses supporting the project is Hammerton’s Funeral Directors. Melanie Torley, office manager, said: “There is nothing for children in Barnsley and we are honoured to help get this project off the ground. “We would love all our funerals to be 92-yearold people but that isn’t how life goes.” Elaine Briggs, principal at Darton Academy, said: “Lucas was a lovely young man who was respectful, well liked and very polite.” n To donate, visit the link at www.barnsleychronicle.com.

ADVERTS on Facebook posted on behalf of Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock, and Dan Jarvis in his role as mayor, have been removed by the social media giant after falling foul of rules about funding for political advertising. Facebook rules introduced nearly a year ago require political adverts to make clear who paid for them. Stephanie Peacock had one advert removed, as did Dan Jarvis’s mayoral office. A spokesperson for the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority said its records showed that just one advert ran without a disclaimer declaring how that advert was funded. This advert, on Sheffield City Region’s

transport plans, ran in January 2019 at a cost of £50. All adverts since have run with the required disclaimers. “Social media is a cost-effective way of reaching people from all our region’s communities, through the media channels that we know they are most likely to use,” the spokesman said. “Such adverts are also far cheaper, and therefore a better use of public money, than advertising through traditional means such as in newspapers, on the radio or on billboards. “We currently use social media channels, as well as more traditional forms of communication, to share our news, to advertise jobs, and to make

3

people aware of consultations such as our current South Yorkshire Bus Review. “We are also aware that we spend a fraction of the advertising cost of many other local authorities and combined authorities, which reflects our commitment to providing best value for money.” Ms Peacock said it a statement: “Promoting social media posts is an effective means of keeping local residents up to date with my work. “The single post that was eventually removed from my Facebook page was placed shortly after the rule changes were introduced by the platform, spending just £2.60 before the error was thankfully spotted.”

It will be Lucas’ legacy that will last forever and it’s something positive to come from his death.” The family said the support the family have received following Lucas’ death has been ‘brilliant’. Stacey said: “The staff at Barnsley Hospital, the police, Darton Academy and Lucas’ friends have been brilliant. We have received so many messages of support and this garden is a way of giving something back to the community. “Lucas was a great kid and we will miss him like crazy. He loved karaoke and he was a leader, especially with his brothers. “He was also confident and so full of energy. It’s all very surreal and at times you

Market Gate Bridge WHY DID NETWORK RAIL CLOSE JUMBLE LANE CROSSING? WHY ARE WE BUILDING A NEW BRIDGE? We’re building a new bridge to create a safe and accessible connection between the transport interchange and The Glass Works, and to add an impressive, eye-catching feature to our fantastic new town centre.

Network Rail manages level crossings across the country. It classed Jumble Lane as a high risk crossing because of the large amount of people using it and a number of ‘near miss’ accidents in recent years. Network Rail therefore took the decision to close Jumble Lane crossing. All electrics have now been removed from Jumble Lane – meaning it can’t be reopened.

WHY HAS JUMBLE LANE CROSSING CLOSED BEFORE A PERMANENT REPLACEMENT BRIDGE WAS PUT IN PLACE?

This followed Network Rail’s decision to close the Jumble Lane crossing in March this year for safety reasons.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to build the new Market Gate Bridge while keeping the crossing open because of how close the site is to the road, The Glass Works construction site, the transport interchange and the live railway line. It just wouldn’t be safe!

WHAT WILL THE NEW BRIDGE LOOK LIKE? Market Gate Bridge will be striking – creating a welcoming link between the transport interchange and our new town centre. It will have a white steel deck with glazed sides and glazed lifts – giving you a panoramic view of The Glass Works. The lifts and bridge will be open 24/7 – with the lifts also featuring call buttons in case of an emergency. It will have wide stair cases and a five meter wide bridge deck – meaning it’s safe and easy to cross, and allows a large number of people using the bridge at any time – including on Barnsley FC match days. It will be well lit at night – with the glaze sides acting as a deterrent for antisocial behaviour. It will also have wheeling channels on the stairs so cyclists can safely use the bridge - while bikes will fit into the lifts. Market Gate Bridge will change Barnsley’s skyline for years to come – and become an iconic addition to our new town centre.

WHEN WILL THE NEW BRIDGE BE COMPLETED? A contractor to construct the new bridge will be appointed in spring next year. Once a contractor is appointed then the work will begin. Market Gate Bridge is set to be completed in winter 2021.

HOW MUCH WILL MARKET GATE BRIDGE COST? The bridge will cost around £5.6m – but £2m of this will be funded by Network Rail as they took the decision to close Jumble Lane crossing. It’s all included in the £180m cost of The Glass Works – and will be the final addition to Barnsley’s new town centre.

Temporary bridge and accessibility on match days WHY CAN’T THE TEMPORARY BRIDGE BE USED ON BARNSLEY FC HOME MATCH DAYS?

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVE WALKING ROUTES TO AND FROM OAKWELL?

The number of people using the bridge before and immediately after Barnsley matches is more than the capacity of the bridge and its staircase – so the bridge has to be closed for safety reasons.

The council, working with South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive and Barnsley Football Club, have identified a new walking route to Oakwell that is safe and accessible for football fans.

We recognise that this has caused disruption – but we have to make your safety our priority.

The route is: Kendray Street, Mayday Green, Cheapside, Wesley Street, Lambra Road, Pontefract Road and Grove Street. There is no access for football fans via The Alhambra Centre.

WHY WASN’T A LARGER TEMPORARY BRIDGE INSTALLED THAT COULD MANAGE THE CAPACITY OF THE FOOTBALL FANS ON A MATCH DAY? There isn’t enough space. The temporary bridge is close to the road, The Glass Works construction site and the transport interchange, so it wasn’t possible to install a wider temporary bridge. The area over the crossing also needs to be kept clear to allow for the construction of the new, Market Gate Bridge.

IS THE TEMPORARY BRIDGE CLOSED AT NIGHT? No, the temporary bridge is open 24/7 other than on Barnsley FC match days where the bridge temporarily closes before and after each home game – usually an hour before and an hour after. This will be communicated via Barnsley Council’s social media channels.

There is no access through the transport interchange for football fans on match days an hour before and an hour after kick off.

WILL THE TEMPORARY BRIDGE BE REMOVED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW BRIDGE? No, the temporary bridge will remain in place until the new bridge is fully constructed.

WHY IS THERE NO ACCESS VIA THE INTERCHANGE BRIDGE ON MATCH DAYS? The interchange is owned and operated by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive. It is not a public right of way. They have chosen to close the bridge to football fans for the safety of passengers using the interchange, and to minimise disruption. However, access will be given to those with access needs.

IS THERE AN ALTERNATIVE ACCESSIBLE ROUTE FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN’T USE THE STAIRS ON THE TEMPORARY BRIDGE? Yes, the accessible route is via the transport interchange and the railway station. From the town side, you can access the railway station lifts via platform 2 via a route at the side of the temporary bridge.

IS THERE AN ALTERNATIVE ACCESSIBLE ROUTE AVAILABLE OUT OF HOURS? Yes, between midnight and 5am you can contact the security team in the interchange on 01226 213303 who will provide access.

Traders protest at two-tier market rents TRADERS left their stalls in a lunchtime protest against changes to rents in the new Glass Works market hall under which charges to upstairs traders were slashed by half. The changes, introduced last month following a consultation with traders, are in response to complaints from the upper floor of slower trade in the afternoons when compared to downstairs. But those on the ground floor, who are not subject to any reductions in rent under the changes, have criticised the decision for not looking at the bigger picture of footfall in the market and for driving a divide between traders on the two levels. Martin Homer runs Bathtime Heaven. He said traders were not against the rent reductions – but pointed out that the difference between trade upstairs and downstairs was not significant enough to warrant a difference of 50 per cent. “The public aren’t aware of what they’re doing to us, but there’s going to be no market left if it carries on,” said Martin, 39. “Councillors are saying traders upstairs are struggling with rent payments but it’s exactly the same downstairs. The same amount of people are coming in whether it’s upstairs or downstairs. “We’re quite happy for them to have the reduction, but I think it needs a 30 per cent reduction upstairs and 20 per cent downstairs. Most of us would agree to that and we wouldn’t be here protesting.” Martin added that the rent reductions would open up the possibility for those upstairs to lower their prices to undercut sellers downstairs.

New team is on the ball John Burton, 57, had been trading upstairs before moving to the lower floor earlier this year and has been in the market for 25 years. “The move cost us £4,000 but we did it because we weren’t getting the business upstairs,” said John, owner of John’s Heel Bar. “We’ve been downstairs five weeks and we’re no busier than we were upstairs – we’re struggling down here as well. “The main point is we aren’t getting the footfall in the market we used to get. “On the last three Thursdays, I’ve probably taken £200. We’re not supposed to trade on Thursdays but we’ve got to. “It’s not a market any more, it’s a shopping centre. We’re not allowed to shout goods off, we’re not allowed to hang stuff outside stalls. “That’s what gives the market its character and brings people in. You’ve only got to listen to the customers.” Mark Arnold, 57, criticised the consultation process for only taking into account the views of a small selection of traders.

Active travel campaign A TEAM of active travel experts has been appointed to help more people to walk, cycle and use public transport in Barnsley and the rest of South Yorkshire. The Active Travel Advisory Board will support Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis and active travel commissioner Dame Sarah Storey’s plan for less car usage. It will be chaired by professor Steve Haake, professor of sports engineering and the founding director of the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University. Board members include representa-

tives from national and regional cycling and walking organisations, including British Cycling, Living Streets, Sustrans, Yorkshire Sport, the health sector and Cycling UK. Mr Jarvis, mayor of the Sheffield City Region, said: “We will be able to progress our plans to make our region a place where the car is no longer king, and our streets and pavements are safer and more enjoyable for walkers and cyclists.” Dame Sarah said: “My ambition is to make South Yorkshire a place where people of all ages and abilities are enabled to walk, cycle or use public transport.”

Mark, of Repair I.T., said the main thing traders wanted was ‘parity’. “They haven’t even spoken to us – they’ve been having what they’ve called meetings without taking minutes, because when we’ve asked to see them they haven’t been able to show us. “That’s not a meeting, it’s a gathering.” Martin added: “A select number of traders have decided who gets half-price rent. The first we knew of it was a letter after the decision saying we had voted.” Coun Tim Cheetham said all traders were included in the consultation process, and seven chose not to respond. “As a responsible landlord, we have regular discussions with our market traders about improvements that can be made to the market,” said Coun Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for regeneration and culture. “Recent conversations with traders suggested there was a difference in trading position between the ground level and first floor of the market. “We decided to look into

this – opening up further discussions with traders. After listening to feedback, we proposed a 50 per cent reduction in rent for firstfloor traders. “After taking this to a consultation, the results showed that the majority of traders who responded were happy with the proposal. This change was implemented from September 1. “Ground-floor traders also have the option to move to the first floor if they wish to take advantage of the discount. “The rent reduction will not only help support traders on the upper level, but also help attract new businesses into the market to ensure it continues to be a vibrant shopping destination. “The market will be supported by the addition of new operators in Market Kitchen this October, which promises to be an exciting addition to the market, wider Glass Works and town centre. “As always, I would like to encourage the people of Barnsley to continue to support our fantastic traders and brilliant market by shopping locally.”

A MUM whose football-loving son suffered a rare type of stroke at six years old has set up a disability football team to support him and others who may be unable to take part in the sport. Riley Hall fell ill two years ago and after two GP appointments, was referred to Barnsley and then Sheffield Children’s Hospital, where doctors found he had suffered a stroke at the back of his brain. It was eventually determined that Riley had ruptured an artery in his neck. The youngster had previously been a promising footballer for Redfearns JFC, of Monk Bretton – but the stroke meant he could no longer take part as he had. “The club have been so supportive of Riley and let him keep his place, and they even let him be assistant coach,” said Becky, 37. “We always wondered whether he’d be able to play again, and if he was able to reintegrate into his own team. “But then we found out Sheffield and Hallamshire were promoting disabled football across the region. “It offers somewhere for kids to come and enjoy playing football where they might not have found their place elsewhere.

“It’s not necessarily about scoring goals, it’s about them getting a fair kick of the ball and getting some fresh air and exercise out in the community.” Becky, of Galway Close, Royston, has passed her level one coaching badge to coach the team and Riley will act as a mentor for the players. She said Redfearns staff, including coach Chris Chapman, had been an invaluable source of support for the family and had fully got behind the new team. It joins Athersley Rec as another in the borough’s growing number of football teams for children with disabilities. “It made me think about how many other children might not be as lucky as Riley,” said Emma, who is a welfare officer for the club and has 15 years experience working with children with additional needs. “The stroke could’ve taken away the thing he was most passionate about. “Everyone was so supportive of making sure Riley could get back to his team, and we wanted to show other children that there are opportunities for them.” For more information contact Becky on 07904252544.

“I prefer to be busy anyway and I am a new dad too. “We will see where it goes but we are going to take time off work. “We’ve worked hard to get to this stage. “There are a few bands doing well locally and I think the Yorkshire accent goes down well.”

Bliss comes first for running charity nurse Benita A NURSE who completed the Great North Run despite a serious fall has raised nearly £700 for a charity that supports premature babies. Benita Wainwright, who is a sister at Barnsley’s accident and emergency department and has regularly featured in the Channel 5 series Casualty 24/7, ran for the charity Bliss, which aims to give every premature baby the best chance of survival and quality of life. She ran the half marathon to raise funds after her nephew Jasper was born prematurely last year and required specialist attention at Jessops Hospital in Sheffield. However, although being a keen runner since she was a teenager, Benita, 35, picked up an achilles injury during her training and it restricted how far she could run. During the marathon itself she also fell at mile 11 but still carried on the journey. Her husband Martin, of Gawber, said he was very proud of his wife. “With Benita’s nephew Jasper and his wonderful parents Nick and Vicky in attendance she made it across the finish line in two hours and nine seconds. “She’s very hard on herself so I know her falling and needing to stop would have added an extra layer of mental anguish to the challenge. “So for her to find the strength to block out the pain and make it across the line is incredible. I know having her nephew Jasper there would have been the catalyst in getting her legs moving at full speed again, when she could have easily have limped over the line.” Benita raised a total of £695 for Bliss and was also back to work completing full shifts for the following three days.

A week in WAB history...

Tributes paid to fallen soldiers WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in October last year... October 5 Mayor clearing his throat for karaoke A KARAOKE event is taking place at May Day Green to raise money for charity. From 10am to 2.30pm, the market in May Day Green will be your stage to entertain traders and public alike. The fundraising event is in support of the Mayor’s Charities, Barnsley Hospice and Barnsley Independent Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support. Singers pay a small fee to enter, first prize is £100 and there are two prizes of £50.

The Mayor will also be attending and there is no limit to how many times you can enter. Coun Wayne Johnson said: “Come along and support the Fundraiser. You may even catch the Mayor doing his party piece!” October 26 Barnsley Museums remembers the war AN EXHIBITION is being held to remember the First World War. The Experience Barnsley museum will host their final exhibition The Great War Ends’, marking the 100 year anniversary of the end of the conflict and commemorates the last few months of the war. The exhibition starts on Sunday, and visitors can discover the real life experi-

FIREWORK season is only a few weeks away and cats and dogs can feel anxious and frightened when they hear the loud bangs. In order to ensure that your pet remains as calm as possible during this season, Abby Vets have provided the following tips to ensure that your pet remains calm. 1. Say calm yourself – Your pet will react on your reaction. Don’t react to the fireworks and try not to worry or fuss over your pet. 2. Tire your pet out during the day with an extra long walk or play. 3. Feed your pet before dusk to help them settle. 4. Bring your pet inside before dusk. 5. Make a safety den from blankets, crates, or boxes that your pet can hide in. 6. Secure pet flaps, doors and windows to prevent your pet bolting. 7. Reassure your pet gently and be as normal and routine as possible. Help them keep calm. 8. Make background noise using TVs and radio.

ences of Barnsley soldiers, what they saw, heard and felt. As well as the long lasting effect the war had on the people of the area and future generations. Coun Roy Miller said: “We owe so much to the courageous soldiers who fought in the First World War and we are pleased that we can honour their memories in this way. “‘1918: The Great War’ Ends’ is a fitting finale to a series of exhibitions commemorating the conflict and unmissable for anyone who has connections to those involved.” October 29 Sneak peak of the new market AHEAD of the official opening of the market this weekend, we’ve been given

a sneak peak of what it will look like. The market will be the new home to the traders currently in the Mayday Green and Market Parade temporary sites, with more than 60 stalls on the ground floor and more than 40 upstairs. The new food court will also be upstairs, with a seating area for more than 500 people overlooking Cheapside. There will be three market cafes by late November, with the entire space planned to be filled by May. The market will have its ‘soft’ opening on November 2, with the official opening on November 3.

Barnsley are stung as Bees hit back to win BARNSLEY FC suffered a third successive Championship defeat despite taking a first-minute lead. Sunday’s 3-1 home loss to Brentford left the Reds, who are without a win in nine games, third-bottom in the table. Cauley Woodrow’s spectacular strike put the Reds ahead. But visiting hat-trick hero Ollie Watkins levelled before the break then put his side in front 54 seconds into the second half before adding a third. The hosts started strongly and could have gone 2-0 up but, as the game went on, Brentford’s front free of Watkins, Sergi Canos and Said Benrahma began to cause chaos for the Reds’ defence, who could not cope with their pace and movement. The Bees missed several chances to win by a wider scoreline as they dominated a one-sided second half in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Head coach Daniel Stendel said he could understand the supporters’ frustration after a third straight home loss. “When I am a fan and I watch this game today, I am not happy,” he said. “I told the players at half-time that when the stadium is quiet, it is not good. “The players gave the supporters a good feeling in the first 20 minutes but it was so quiet before half-time that I could call over the pitch and they hear me. “We need to give the supporters the feeling that we are one unit, we didn’t do that in the second half.” Stendel made two changes from the side that lost 1-0 at Nottingham Forest eight days earlier as he brought in Dimitri Cavare for Dani Pinillos, with Jordan Williams moving to leftback, and Conor Chaplin for Mallik Wilks up front. The game started superbly for the Reds as, after 59 seconds, Woodrow curled a 25-yard effort into the top right corner. It was his second goal of the season, following another stunning strike against Charlton Athletic last month, and ended a wait of three games across more than a month for a Barnsley goal. Woodrow almost got another in the 11th minute, but his low effort from just inside the box, after touches by Chaplin and Alex Mowatt, was deflected and went just wide of the bottom left corner. Brentford, who started the game poorly, had their first shot in the 25th minute when a counter-attack on the left saw Watkins square in the box to Benrahma whose 15-yard effort was brilliantly kept out by Brad Collins, who sprang to his left. Luke Thomas fired tamely at David Raya from the edge of the box then, later, he beat the goalkeeper to a lofted Woodrow pass on the left wing and squared to

Chaplin, whose shot at the empty net from just inside the box was blocked by Pontus Jansson. It proved to be a crucial moment as the away side were on top for the rest of the game. The equaliser came on 35 minutes as Brentford counter-attacked from a corner and, with Barnsley getting back into position, worked the ball well with Benrahma finding Mathias Jensen on the right wing. His cross was headed in from six yards out by the unmarked Watkins. Brentford then came incredibly close to a second goal in four minutes as Watkins went clean through and beat Collins but his shot hit the base of the left post. Then, when the ball came back to him, he smashed against the crossbar eight yards out before Benrahma fired wide from even closer. There was another early goal in the second half but this time for the visitors, who worked the ball down the right wing before Canos’ cross was misjudged by Collins and Watkins headed in almost on the line. Barnsley were then furious that the referee did not play advantage after a foul on Jacob Brown with Thomas running through on goal on the right. From the resulting free-kick, Woodrow headed tamely wide at the back post. Jensen had a 20-yard shot deflected narrowly over the bar by Aapo Halme then Benrahma put Canos clean through on the right of the box but he shot into the side netting when he could easily have passed to the unmarked Watkins who would have had a hat-trick. Stendel brought on Wilks and Patrick Schmidt for Thomas and Chaplin after 63 minutes but the Bees soon scored a third. Benrahma played a superb pass through the home defence to Canos on the right wing, then the Spaniard’s cross was met six yards out by the unmarked Watkins and, although Collins got a hand to the headed effort, the ball trickled over the line. The visitors nearly added another when Benrahma exchanged clever passes in the box with Watkins but fired a low effort just wide of the bottom left corner from 12 yards out. Benrahma then hit a free-kick straight at Collins. Barnsley (4-4-2): Collins; Cavare (Thiam 75mins), Halme, Andersen, J Williams; Brown, Mowatt, Sibbick, Thomas (Wilks 63); Chaplin (Schmidt 63), Woodrow. Subs: Walton, Pinillos, Styles, Green.

Begin to throw out unwanted items from attics, wardrobes. What you really don’t want you may as well dump now, send to charity, or sell through the Classified pages of the Chronicle. It’s a great time for a good sort out! Confirm all arrangements, times etc. for meter readings, disconnections and reconnections, with authorities and with your buyer and seller. Make sure you have a good stock of packing materials, including sturdy boxes and plenty of string and sticky tape.

Arrange to take over gas and electricity at your new address, and make sure that all appliances will be properly fitted. Notify BT and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for a final account at your present address, and for taking over or installing telephone facilities. Arrange for change of address cards to be printed. Get estimates from removal companies, checking that comprehensive insurance cover is available against damage or loss, is there a packing and unpacking service? Confirm the date of your move. Check on your home contents insurance policies to ensure that you are covered for the move, and covered at your new address. Make arrangements for your gas and electricity meters (plus water meters where relevant) to be read and all your appliances to be disconnected on the day of your move.

 

Cancel and pay up accounts for routine delivery services such as milk, groceries, newspapers and fuel. Re-organise these deliveries for your new address. Defrost refrigerators in preparation for move and, if you are moving a freezer and its contents, turn it up to maximum for a couple of days before your move. Send off change of address cards. Arrange and pay for automatic re-direction of your mail by the Post Office.

WITH 1 DAY TO GO:

   

Cover carpets which are being left behind, so as to minimise damage during furniture removal. Check through previous lists to make sure nothing has been overlooked, then enjoy a worry-free early night!

Have a large enough cash ‘float’ available to deal with unexpected expenses, and make sure you have collected documents and valuables together in a safe place.

Dismantle any light fittings, etc. not included in sale. Turn off electric appliances. Disconnect cooker. Turn off boiler/central heating. Turn off water.
