Smoking ban will give kids right example MORE than three-quarters of Barnsley’s primary schools have signed a smoke-free pledge which aims to stub out the habit. According to a progress report delivered by cabinet spokesman Coun Jim Andrews on Monday, plans are being put in place to effectively have a blanket ban on smoking by the time children return from their summer holidays in September. Smoking prevalence across Barnsley was at 21.2 per cent early last year, which equated to more than 52,000 smokers in the town or more than one in five people, although latest figures suggest that that percentage has dropped by about three per cent. The policy aims to remove smoking from the sight of children and to create a generation where the habit is not regarded as normal behaviour, on the grounds it is better that people do not begin smoking rather than be persuaded to give up the addiction later. Coun Andrews said: “The smoke-free scheme has been brilliant in the last year and 62 out of the 80 schools are onboard with what we’re trying to achieve. We’re aiming for the rest to

follow suit by the end of the summer. “We want to ensure smoking becomes almost invisible to protect children’s health. Children and young people are influenced by adults’ behaviour and are less likely to start smoking if they do not view it as part of everyday life. “The council is committed to achieving a smoke-free generation by 2025 and this includes reducing visible evidence of smoking. “We hope to vastly reduce the amount of children and young people picking up the habit.” There were 1,727 deaths in Barnsley classed as ‘avoidable’ between 2014 and 2016, working out at a rate of 242.9 per 100,000 people. Julia Burrows, director of public health in the town, said: “The smoking results are very encouraging and represent the biggest drop we have seen in recent years and the biggest drop in South Yorkshire. “Our reduction is larger than the average reduction in England and is an important step towards our vision to create a smoke-free generation in Barnsley but there is still work to do.”

INBRIEF... Witness appeal after cyclist dies POLICE are seeking witnesses after a cyclist died after being involved in a crash with a car in Barnsley. A 48-year-old man from the Wakefield area was cycling on New Road from High Hoyland when he was in collision with a blue VW Golf travelling in the opposite direction near the junction with Jewett House Lane at around 1.30pm on Saturday. The cyclist was taken to hospital and died shortly afterwards. A 26-year-old woman driving the Golf was not injured. Officers are asking witnesses to contact them. They would also like to hear from anyone with dashcam footage of the cyclist or car prior to the collision. Call 101 quoting incident number 473 of June 29 if you can help.

Mark sees his future through a lens A WHEELCHAIR user who has campaigned for more support for people with disabilities wants to ‘show he can still work’ as he sets up his own business. Mark Ravenhill, 34, has recently set up Mark Ravenhill Photography – and is already getting interest, with his first booking last weekend for a friend. But Mark, who has cerebral palsy, says he won’t be charging while he practises his photography skills. “I want to show that just because I’m disabled, it doesn’t mean I can’t work,” said Mark, of Spring Grove, Carlton. “I really enjoy photography and I want to practise. You never know – I might end up working for the Barnsley Chronicle one day.” Mark says he will be taking bookings for weddings, parties and other events. n CAMERAMAN: Mark Ravenhill.

Coast to coast task as friends bid to show off their pedal power A GROUP of Barnsley lads are gearing up to set off on an epic coast-to-coast cycle ride to raise money for two local charities. The challenge, in which they will cover the 215 miles of the Trans Pennine Trail from Southport to Hornsea in just two days, came from nothing more than a chat in the pub. But the nine-strong team have already raised more than £1,000, a fifth of their goal. “One lad bought a bike, and then another, and then I thought I’m going to have to get one now,” said Mark Kitching, 27, of Chestnut Crescent, Kendray. “It’s been surprising, we didn’t think everyone would be up for training or buying a bike. But it just spiralled. I suppose you don’t want to spend three or four hundred quid on a bike and not use it. “That first ride was awful. I’d not been on a bike in ten years. I thought I was going to fall off.” The group will start in Southport, on the west coast, and plan on getting back into Barnsley that night They will set off from the McDonald’s in Stairfoot in the early hours of the following morning. They will finish the 215mile trip in Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire that night. They said the added comfort of sleeping in their own beds with the other option being a van they’ve hired out to perform repairs on the road will spur them on during the more difficult first

Mark said: “A lot of people do it over four days but we decided to do it in two, which is what a pro cyclist would do, so it’s going to be really tough.” The team, who have gone on weekly rides as preparation, will raise money for Barnsley Hospital’s Tiny Hearts Appeal and Yorkshire Cancer Research which they say has helped them to take the challenge more seriously. “We’ve got a certain pace to keep to, otherwise we’ll be riding into the night,” said Scott Stewart, 30, of Parkland View, Lundwood. “As long as we all stick together we’ll be all right. People will do it faster than others but it’s about sticking to a pace you all can do. “There’s nothing worse than riding on your own when you don’t

know where you are.” Mark may be familiar to readers of the Chronicle for his fundraising efforts. Last year, he climbed more than 5,000km to base camp on Mount Everest to raise money for Wakefield-based charity Penny Appeal, and said he wanted to keep up the fundraising. “I like setting myself challenges and hearing people say I can’t do them,” said the self-proclaimed ‘mountain man turned mountain bike man’. “With this I believed them for a while, after that first ride I thought I was screwed. But you’ve got to push through it.” The ride will take place on July 13 and 14. Go to: crowdfunding/zeladscoast2coast to donate.

Pub on the hunt for top gong A BARNSLEY landlady is celebrating a brace of award successes. The Huntsman Inn in Thurlstone was recently announced as being in the running for ‘Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub’, run by Welcome to Yorkshire. But if it is to win that award, landlady, Sam Ireland will have to clear some space on the bar next to the Barnsley CAMRA Pub of the Year award the Huntsman has already won. “We work hard to make sure it remains a community pub,” said Sam. “We do a lot of fundraising and getting involved in the local area. “And our customers make it – there’s always someone to chat to, and if there isn’t a spare table people will share. “It’s great for the small community pub to have that instead of the big restaurant and hotel chains which are all over around here.” The Huntsman is the only pub in Barnsley to be shortlisted for the ninth iteration of the award, the

results of which will be announced on July 9. Welcome to Yorkshire’s commercial director, Peter Dodd, said: “This year’s competition is really exciting as none of the pubs shortlisted have ever won before, so we’ll have a new winner for 2019 and it’s great to see so many new pubs thriving and being recognised for being the heart of their communities. “We’ve had a fantastic number of nominations, with thousands of people showing their support and putting forward their favourite pubs across the county. “It’s now the public’s turn to choose who should take the coveted title as they have a chance to vote for Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub. “It’s a huge achievement for the ten pubs that have been shortlisted and I wish them all the very best of luck.” To vote in the award, visit WITH a new single and music video out this week, a group of Dearne rockers are gearing up for their second album release. The Sherlocks, who are from Bolton-upon-Dearne, released their single NYC (Sing It Loud) this week – which is one of the songs from their album Under Your Sky. The video explores themes of American showbiz, featuring actor Thomas Turgoose – who is known for his roles in This is England and Game of Thrones – on the ‘Uncomfortably Late Show’. The single itself is inspired by the band touring America and the unglamorous sides of it. The video – which features the band playing on the ‘show’ looks at guests performing odd and uncomfortable acts – much to the amusement of Turgoose and the host. And according to drummer Brandon Crook, the video has had the ‘best response yet’. “It’s been massive and it’s been the biggest reaction we have ever had,” he said. “Everyone is saying they like it and that it was good to get Thomas involved.” The quartet built a friendship with the actor after meeting him at an Oasis exhibition. “We went on a few nights out with him and we just sort of kept in touch after that,” said Brandon. “We’ve been out with him a few times and he started going to our gigs. We had this idea for the video and had a few different names of people who could star in it thrown our way but we decided to ask him (Thomas) and he said yes. It’s had a great reaction.”

Residents have their say on health services HUNDREDS of Barnsley people are helping to shape the future of health and care services by sharing their views with the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) and local Healthwatch organisations. Over the last three months, members of the public from a wide range of groups and communities across Barnsley and other areas of South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw have been sharing their opinions to improve healthcare through questionnaires, focus groups and at two public events which have already taken place. The NHS Long Term Plan was published in January this year and sets out how an extra national investment of £20.5bn will be made to provide better care. The ambition is to provide care closer to people’s homes, prevent a number of illnesses from developing and improve care for people living with mental health


problems; as well as preventing heart attacks, strokes and dementia cases. Health and care organisations in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, alongside all local Healthwatch partners, have been asking local people – from youth forums, prisoners, LGBT+ groups, BME communities, patient and survivor groups to students and groups for new mums – how they think its share of the new funding should be spent. Key focus areas for the region so far are cancer care, care in your neighbourhood, mental health and learning disabilities, bringing the NHS into the digital age and prevention. South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System, medical director, Des Breen, said: “The NHS Long Term Plan was developed with the help of 3.5m people nationally and now we are asking people here what we could do in South Yorkshire and

Bassetlaw. We really want local people to get involved in developing and improving our local health and care services and helping to develop our local plan through open and honest conversations is one of the ways you can do this. These events and other work we have done has helped us gauge opinion from the public as to what our plan should look like. “We’ve had some fantastic involvement so far with lots of help from the public, lots of positive feedback and some great suggestions. If we want our services to be the best they can be we must develop them with those who use them and we are committed to making sure this happens.” If members of the public have not been able to attend the events they can share their views by filling in a questionnaire – NHSLongTermPlanSYBICS – by June 25.

Award win for archaeology innovation A PROJECT which mapped one of Elsecar’s most important historic sites using cutting edge technology has won a prestigious national award from the Association for Industrial Archaeology. Samantha Frandsen, an MSc exploration geophysics student from University of Leeds’ school of Earth and environment, was singled out for outstanding scholarship and making a unique contribution to the field of archaeology. The project used gravity surveying a technique rarely used in archaeology alongside more established methods to search for remains of the former Elsecar gasworks. Gravity surveying can be used to measure different densities in the ground, including differences between solid foundations and hidden voids. The Elsecar gasworks was established in 1857 by the Earl Fitzwilliam and reflected the Earl’s drive to embrace and develop new technology and innovation. The gasworks was part of the Earl’s industrial model village, alongside his new central workshops now the Elsecar Heritage



Centre. The project found that substantial remains of the gasworks survive underground, including the foundations of one of the two gasholders that once stood at the heart of the historic village. The work was supported by the Elsecar Heritage Action Zone, a partnership between Barnsley Museums and Historic England. Dr Adam Booth, associate professor of applied geophysics, said “We take great pride in our students being able to apply geophysical innovations to any subsurface investigation. Samantha demonstrated real personal flair in this project and rose to the challenge of working with experimental technologies. Her award from the Association for Industrial Archaeology is richly deserved.” Dr Tegwen Roberts, Elsecar Heritage Action Zone officer, said: “Elsecar was built on innovation and it’s fantastic that we are still pushing the boundaries of archaeological research and technology. The partnership project with the University has been extremely successful.”

n FAMILY FUN: The Alexandra Rose Charity’s Silkstone Woods event.

Event celebrates success of healthy eating scheme MORE than 50 parents and children from Dearne, Darfield and Wombwell, and Barnsley central family centres attended an event in Silkstone Woods as part of a day celebrating a scheme which provides free fruit and veg for low-income families. There was plenty of fun to be had, with a woodland adventure trail, a healthy cooking session, puddle jumping and more. The Alexandra Rose Charity (ARC) supports more than 1,000 families across England to access fresh fruit and vegetables in their local communities, to give children the healthiest possible diet. In Barnsley, Rose vouchers are available to families on low incomes, worth £3 per child every week, (double if the child is under one-yearold) and can only be redeemed at markets which sell fresh fruit and vegetables. “Rose Vouchers not only help young families to buy fresh fruit and

vegetables while developing the skills and confidence to give their children the healthiest start in life but also support Barnsley’s local markets, maintaining their position as sources of healthy low-cost food in areas that often suffer from poor food access,” a spokesman from the ARC said. The Barnsley scheme started as a pilot in 2016 and was the first one to take place outside London. Coun Margaret Bruff said: “The Rose Voucher scheme continues to have a really positive impact in Barnsley. “The vouchers are supporting families to adopt healthier lifestyles in the crucial years before school starts and the additional support from family centres such as cooking classes are helping them develop the skills and confidence to provide their families with the healthiest start. “Families really enjoyed the celebration event and we received some great feedback.”

Hospice benefits from epic cross-country cycle A WOMAN has praised her husband for helping to raise £1,500 for Barnsley Hospice in memory of her mother. David Colborn, of Kingsway, Wombwell, took part in the Coast to Coast cycle from Southport to Hornsea with five of his friends – with three of them raising funds for the hospice and the rest raising money for other causes. His wife Kaye Colborn said David had wanted to raise money after Kaye’s mum Doreen Cooper had been both an outpatient and inpatient at the hospice. Kaye, 36, said she was proud of her husband and his friends who took part, especially as they cycled through ‘appalling weather’. “He (David) has always wanted to do to Coast to Coast,” said Kaye. “His friend Mick has done it before so he gave everyone else the guided tour. He said to his friends ‘if we are going to do it why not do it for a cause?’ It was always going to be Barnsley Hospice as my mum died there in August of 2014. “My mum was diagnosed with a brain tumour in her 40s and was an outpatient at the hospice for around 20 years before dying at the age of 62. I was 12 when she was diagnosed. “She was known by the outpatient staff and by a lot of staff in general. They’re all amazing there and do a fantastic job. My mum was told she was a miracle patient by staff because she lived for so long with the brain tumour. She in there for several weeks when she was weaker. “Nurses from the outpatient department used to visit her when she was an inpatient. She was very weak then but they would squeeze her hand and she knew who they were. They were wonderful to her.”

n CYCLE MISSION: David Colborn (right) with friends Lee Smith and Ian Dennis. Below: David’s mother-in-law, Doreen Cooper with his wife, Kaye.

David and his friends got back from the ride on Saturday after four full days of cycling, with rest points and stopovers along the way. “On day one they travelled from Southport to Stockport, then day two they did Stockport to Wombwell, day three was Wombwell to Howden and day four they did Howden to Hornsea. They had to a bit of a detour on the way and there was a bit of a funny incident where there were some angry bulls in a field. “I don’t know how they did it as I couldn’t do it at all.” At the moment, David and two of his friends who took part in the ride – Ian Dennis and Lee Smith – have raised £1,500 between them for the hospice, with more money coming in. “I’m glad that money has been raised for the hospice, but I wish more could be done for them and they could get

government funding,” said Kaye. “They should not have to rely on fundraising as I don’t think they get enough to keep afloat. They deserve much more. “This is just a small token in comparison for what the hospice did for my mum and my family,” said Kaye. “She was comfortable and was made comfortable by staff there. She built relationship with the staff and those people who worked there for many years. “I couldn’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me and my family.” In response, Vicky Stead, community fundraising team leader at Barnsley Hospice, said: “We’re really grateful to the guys for completing this challenge for us. 192 miles is an amazing distance and it

means even more that they’ve done this during the month the hospice celebrates its 25th anniversary. The kind support from people like this means we can continue to care for families in Barnsley.” For more information about Barnsley Hospice, visit

Group happy to open up history of a village A LOCAL history group held an open day so members of the public could delve into the story of a village. The Royston History Group displayed memorabilia, souvenirs, photos, press reports and posters of the Royston and district peace celebrations from 1919 and beyond. The group was founded in September 2000 by Terry Middleton and Jim Evison, and now has more than 20 members who meet on a regular basis. The aim of the group is to make people of

the village aware of its history and to share the information they find with residents. When it began, there was hardly any archive material to call on. But that has now changed, and sources include a computer collection of more than 6,000 images, school logs and articles. Together the group have created a timeline of the history of Royston, including the 1914 colliery development, 1920 miners’ strike and establishment of peace in the coal industry in 1926. There have also been nine publications by the group.

LOOKING BACK: Jim Evison and Joyce Johnson of Royston History Group.

‘Penny Pie Park 2.0 is coming’ A ROW over plans to ‘decimate’ two playing fields to build a 146-home estate in what is being dubbed ‘Penny Pie Park 2.0’ will be thrashed out by Barnsley Council’s ruling cabinet members next month – more than a year since the controversial scheme was unveiled. Persimmon Homes, the developer behind the planning application, outlined its bid for the land off Keresforth Road, Dodworth, in April last year but concerns over its preferred access route – via a cul-de-sac on Bark Meadows – have delayed a decision. The cul-de-sac, which has just eight homes, was initially identified as the only viable route into the site as it’s bordered by the M1 motorway, a watercourse known locally as Dodworth Dike and another playing field designated as a recreation space off South Road. The field earmarked for recreation – which borders the planned housing site – is being looked at as an alternative route in, something which residents compare to Barnsley Council’s controversial scheme to carve up nearby Penny Pie Park in order to create a new one-way road system. Nigel Tonge, who has lived on Bark Meadows for almost 20 years, said: “The access is all wrong – a cul-desac should never be used as the main route into what would be an estate of 146 houses. The traffic to junction 37 of the

M1 can be horrendous at times so it doesn’t bear thinking about the impact up to 200 more vehicles would have. “We’re told they are looking at using another access, through an adjacent recreation ground, meaning two fields which are popular with kids could be lost. “We seem to be losing our playing areas, despite obesity levels rising. “Penny Pie Park has been a big topic locally as much of its greenspace is being lost and this is the same – Penny Pie Park 2.0. “The whole site is unsuitable as it’s been used by kids for as far back as I can remember, it’s rich with wildlife and it’s also too close to the motorway. “Our young grandchildren come here every week. “They play out together and that’s because it’s a safe area, one that’s free from danger. “Why should my grandchildren have to stop playing out just because a greedy developer is wanting to opt for the cheapest route into the site? “Barnsley’s air pollution is bad as it is so it would also be mindless to put 146 homes right next to a motorway.” Ongoing concerns about the access will result in cabinet members discussing the application at Barnsley Town Hall next month – a rare move as usually housing-related matters go straight to its planning board.

Band answer the call and deliver top performance YOUNG members of a school orchestra have hit a real high note. Musicians at Silkstone Common Junior and Infants were the only ones to play at a pioneering educational festival in Sheffield. And they were so good, they have been asked back next year when the event could be on more of a Yorkshire-wide scale. “This was a real boost for the school,” said head teacher Simon Tabbner. The opportunity arose when organisers of the first Hallam Festival of Education invited any school which could demonstrate the art of music to take part. Barnsley Music Service immediately put forward Silkstone Common’s 22-strong ensemble. “We grabbed the chance to show off our high quality music and performance,” said Mr Tabbner.

“Feedback suggests that people who could only hear the music and not see who was playing thought it was an orchestra of adults. And there was our little orchestra of eight to 11-yearolds. It was all very positive. “They did two sessions of 30 minutes playing music from this season’s repertoire. They represented our school really well and absolutely loved it. They had a whale of a time. They were top. Played some of their best.” Proud parent and governor Claire Neilson said: “This was a massive achievement for the youngsters.” Claire’s own son, Lewis, plays cello in the orchestra – which performs without an adult or conductor on stage. “They are outstanding,” she said. “And the school is lucky to have an excellent teacher in Kathryn Smith who does such a lot to promote music. School

staff believe in the value of music and it shows.” The first ever Hallam Festival of Education took place over two days at Sheffield Hallam University. Attended by more than 1,000 people from the education sector, it has been hailed as a huge success. The event combined a festival-style atmosphere and venues with activities, workshops, debates about performances about current and emerging challenges in education. Attended by teachers, support workers, education leaders policymakers, education companies, government and local authority officials, the festival was officially launched by Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis MP. Headline speakers included MP Tracey Brabin and former Education Secretary Lord Blunkett.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, July 2, 2019 –

Expansion is ‘significant’ says upbeat Police chief SOUTH Yorkshire Police is to take on 92 new officers, including more firearms officers, dog handlers and specialist investigators. The major expansion comes on top of a previously-announced recruitment drive to hire 55 officers, while another 73 will join the force as neighbourhood officers to replace PCSOs – giving a total of 220 new officers against an existing staff of around 2,400. They will be phased in over the next four years. Although senior officers are still working out exactly what roles they will take on, Chief Constable Stephen Watson said they will include additional firearms officers, dog handlers and specialist investigators to tackle modern threats such as cyber crime. There will also be an expansion of the tactical support group, the squad of officers which specialises in services like forced entries and searching properties. That will give more ‘heft’ to the recently reintroduced and highly successful neighbourhood policing teams which are beginning

to choke off demand for emergency 999 responses from police by preventing problems developing within communities. South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, described the change as ‘one of the most significant developments in policing in South Yorkshire’ during his time in the role. Neighbourhood teams have already been promised a boost, with the bulk of the additional 55 officers announced earlier this year and the 73 who will be recruited to replace PCSOs set to go straight into the neighbourhood teams which lose those uniformed civilian staff. Cash for the recruitment has been gathered from a range of sources, including internal efficiencies, a better than expected grant increase from the government and a hike in the money paid by residents through council tax. Mr Watson said he was confident the increased numbers were affordable over the 35-year careers they would expect.

He said: “The way we are using the people we have got is very much better, the rate of improvement in South Yorkshire Police is unprecidented anywhere else in the country. “That is because of the quality of the people we have already got. Doing more of that positive dynamic will play out well for the public and that is something I celebrate. “We have a number of priority areas we need to fulfil. We are committed to increasing numbers of specialist uniformed officers in functions such as firearms, dog patrols and the territorial support group, all designed to add real heft to the work of neighbourhood police teams. “The territorial support group is something we used to have. It is specialist officers, mobile and highly trained in method of entry, search, public order, surveillance and the like. It is a facility that was lost, we have resurrected it but it is smaller than we would like it to be.” Providing more armed officers will help to ensure

police are capable of answering threats from criminals who use guns. “It is simply making sure we have the facility to deal with all manner of threats from the very top, terrorism type attacks, which we are very secure on, working down through the whole spectrum for firearms teams,” added Mr Watson. “People who use firearms in crime need to understand we have people who will confront them and bring them to justice,” he said. South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, said: “This is one of the most significant developments in policing in South Yorkshire in my time as Police and Crime Commissioner. “It answers those who wanted to see real improvement for the increased council tax as well as those who know that if crime is to be tackled successfully we must have more police officers. “This uplift of 220 officers is a first step in beginning to restore the ravages done to policing by the years of austerity and cuts.”


n NOMINEE: Jamie Preece has been shortlisted for an NHS award.

Jamie’s vital voluntary role A VOLUNTEER with cerebral palsy who gives up his time to test communication aids has been shortlisted for an NHS award. Jamie Preece is a service user representative at Barnsley Hospital and helps the Assistive Technology Team, which provides specialised augmentative and alternative communication throughout Yorkshire and the Humber. When Jamie was born he had cerebral palsy and no means of verbal communication because of this. The 42-year-old supports the team on a regular basis in training speech therapy students, interviewing candidates for jobs, helping out with innovative research and developing resources for other service users.

He has now been shortlisted for an NHS Parliamentary Award in the Volunteer of the Year category after being nominated by Barnsley Hospital and being selected by Angela Smith MP. Jamie lives in Rotherham and in his spare time runs Facebook support groups, sharing his knowledge and experience of assistive technology locally, regionally nationally and supports disabled bike riders. Service leader for the hospital’s Assistive Technology Team, Simon Judge, said: “Jamie’s input to our team has been essential. He helps us ensure that as a team working with those with the most significant disabilities, we remain focused on the needs of our service users.”

WAB debate...

Should the taxpayer prop up the market? RENTS from Barnsley’s new Glassworks market hall will fall short of expectations this year, leaving the council to find more than £100,000 to plug the gap. According to a report for Barnsley councillors, the extra cash is needed because ongoing construction work at the complex, which is a heavily modified version of the old Metropolitan shopping centre, has resulted in some stalls being left unoccupied. We asked members of We Are Barnsley for their opinion on this, and these were their responses... Carl Brennan: “High rents and five-year contracts which also requires being open six days a week... you tell me who wants to sign up to that as a new business. “Pay half the rent with 12-month rolling contracts, fill the place with traders, generate interest, generate custom and reap the extra footfall as the town grows and booms. “Get the drug users and alcoholics out of the town into safer areas for them

and shoppers and we’re heading in the right direction. “Put a cap on councillors wages and expenses would also be a step in the right direction. Also it’s outrageous and obscene what these people earn they should be ashamed...” Gavin Siddons: “They shouldn’t have been asking for five years rent up front.” Luke Birchall: “Half of the stalls are empty because the rents are too high. “Lower the rent, fill the other stalls make current stall-holders happier and hey-presto! “Shortfall made up, more people spending, more money for local businesses and a thriving town.” Richard Pearson: “All of you saying that the rent is too high are wrong, the rent is reasonable and is the same rent per square foot, for every trader. “If you have a bigger stall you pay more rent. The rent is fixed for five years but the service charge isn’t. “However, to get the same sized stall as you had in the old market hall, the rent is

Take one step beyond to see Madness live MADNESS are back for 2019, and they will be performing at Doncaster Races on July 20! The nutty boys celebrate being one of the top 20 selling UK groups of all time, with seven top ten albums to their name. The band have reached the UK Top 20 charts 22 times, with over six million album sales. Recently they’ve

achieved gold status with their ‘Can’t Touch Us Now’ album, sold out shows across the country, and released their Full House The Best Of Madness compilation. Madness promise to play all the hits and fan favourites including ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘One Step Beyond’, ‘My Girl’, ‘Our House’ and ‘It Must Be Love’, plus some brand new tracks too. For an action packed

slightly higher, but still reasonable. “The issue for us was the five-year lease with a threeyear break clause. We had to commit to about £22,000 of rent, without knowing what trade would be like.” Anna Tinkler: “The stall holders who are there are doing a fantastic job. “They are there six days a week putting some right hours into this market and trying to make it welcoming and with plenty of choice. “Not getting help from above, they deserve a medal. Well done, keep up the good work. Management needs a restructure if you ask me, get people in who know what Barnsley people want and expect.” Paul Dransfield: “The ‘black hole’ should be covered by docking the pay of the loons who made the six-day day trading, five-year lease decisions.” Pawel Matuszek: “Market customers expect cheaper prices but market sellers can’t offer them due to high rent and service costs. “The new market hall looks brilliant but it does not fulfil

the idea of the market in my opinion.” Brett Wood: “The markets are facing the same problems as the shop holders rates and overhead costs rise year on year but the profit margin doesn’t. “It’s simple economics. The high street will be gone in under ten years.” Pauline Leather: “Traders were not listened to from the beginning they were treated

unfairly and terms and conditions were not good from the start.” Bev McNabola: “The real issue is that many people in the wider Barnsley area have no interest in market stalls. “Goods are not cheaper and young people in particular will not shop there. All this talk of spice heads is nonsense. Every big town and city has these issues.”

John Lingwood: “Some traders saw this coming and didn’t take up the offer to tie themselves to an unreasonable contract. “Added to this is the fact that half the town centre is still being rebuilt, and who wants to come and shop in half a town centre? “If people are not coming into the town, then they are not coming into the market are they?”

July 6 Do you believe in UFOs? A MAN from Hoyland uploaded a video onto YouTube of a ‘UFO’ hovering over Barnsley has gained international interest. Steven Powell, 43, of Coronation Road had been out walking his dog last Sunday at around 9.10pm and when he returned he noticed the object hovering. He said: “I didn’t think anything of it at first but when it hadn’t moved for 45 minutes I decided to record the footage.” He sent the video to Secureteam10, a channel who breaking reports on the many mysteries of our universe. The footage went viral, attracting more than 360,000 views, in addition to 200,000 views on his personal YouTube channel. He said: “I didn’t believe in UFO’s before but my mind has definitely changed now!“ July 19 Elsecar Park voted best green space ELSECAR park has been voted as one of the best in the UK. For the eleventh year, Elsecar Park has been recognised as one of the best green spaces by the Green Flag Award Scheme.

On the move with our helpful guide Moving home can be a hectic business. In the run up to the big day, it is all too easy to forget something vital. To help you avoid some of the major pitfalls, we offer the following checklist: WITH 4 WEEKS TO GO:


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.


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.


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.


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! Complete your packing except for those items you are likely to need overnight, and prepare a picnic for moving day. 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.


…the obvious choice when selling your home

Turn off boiler/central heating. Turn off water. Strip beds and pack bedding and night clothes. Pack items for washing/toiletries. Take down curtains. Take up rugs, carpets, floor coverings, as required. Read gas meter. Read electricity meter. Secure all windows. Lock all doors. Leave key as arranged with new owners. On arrival at your new home, unpack slowly and methodically.
