Bid to tackle high costs of smoking FIGURES for the financial impact of smoking have been compiled in Barnsley with the cost to the town put at more than £62m a year – despite recent reductions in the number of people using cigarettes. A breakdown of those figures show that in one community, Wombwell, the cost to society through smoking is £3.2m a year, with £362,000 going on social care costs for smokers who find themselves in poor health as a result of their habit. Personal costs are also high, with the average smoking resident spending £2,000 a year – or £40 a week – to support their habit. The impact of smoking is also shown to have more wide reaching impacts, with a tonne of smoking-related litter dumped on the streets of the town each year, needing to be cleaned up at Barnsley Council’s expense. Barnsley Council has launched a campaign to make smoking invisible to the emerging generation,

which means voluntary smoking bans at locations including Elsecar Park, outside Barnsley Town Hall and around school gates. Those initiatives have been well supported and the hope is that by removing smoking as ‘normal’ behaviour witnessed by growing children, they will be less inclined to take up the habit in future. Support for those wanting to kick the habit has also helped drive down overall numbers who still smoke, but Barnsley still has work to be done. It is calculated that 89 people die each year due to smoking and around 17 per cent of mothers about to give birth are still smokers, despite the known adverse impact on the health of unborn children. That is up on the regional average of just over 14 per cent and significantly ahead of the figure for England, at 10.8 per cent. n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

INBRIEF... Man dies after being hit by car AN ELDERLY man has died after being struck by a car.

Church comes up with crafty idea

n WELCOMING PLACE: A PROJECT which aims to kick loneliness into touch received a visit from Barnsley Council leader Sir Steve Houghton. Men in Sheds, run by Age UK Barnsley, provides carpentry and wood-turning activities for men aged 50 and above who want to get together and learn new skills in the man-friendly space of a shed. It was piloted three years ago in Cudworth, the ward which Coun Houghton represents, but recently another ‘shed’ was set up at the Newburgh Building

on McLintock Way, off Summer Lane, on the outskirts of the town centre after securing £280,000 in lottery funding to help reach more blokes over the next five years. Sir Steve said: “It’s an excellent scheme and it’s one that’s had real success across Barnsley. “It provides opportunity for friendship, conversation and activities for men who have perhaps faced major life changes such as retirement or redundancy, bereavement or ill health.”

A CHURCH will host 44 artists for a handmade craft fair. All Saints Church in Silkstone will see artists selling a range of gifts, many made within a tenmile radius of the village, at the Wonderfully Made in Yorkshire Craft Fair from Thursday to Saturday. Included in this year’s event will be glass art, paintings, prints, jewellery, toys, fabric products, pottery, leather goods, turned wood, organic soaps, chutney and Christmas cards, cakes and decorations.

BOOK OF THE MONTH

RAILS THROUGH BARNSLEY By Alan Whitehouse & Peter Rodgers RRP £16.99 OFFER PRICE £11.99

Few people realise it, but Barnsley was once the centre of a railway universe. In Victorian times, dozens of competing companies put forward schemes to build railways across, through and around the town. Between them they constructed what some still regard as the most dense railway network in the country - more complicated even than London’s commuter system or even the railway networks of our major cities. The reason almost no one knows about it is because many of the lines built never saw a passenger service. They were built for one reason: coal. A maze of semi-unknown branches served every colliery in the district and the network became so overloaded with coal trains that they even had to build a railway bypass around the town to prevent everything grinding to a standstill! Down the years Barnsley’s railway network became something of a backwater, ignored by many enthusiasts and photographers. So the full story of how the railways aided the town’s prosperity has rarely been told. This book is an attempt to put that right by giving a relatively short - but fact-packed - history, looking at each of the railway companies that opened up the town and connecting it with what was going on in the outside world. It includes a collection of high quality images, many of which have not been seen before. As the coal industry rose and fell, so did the railway system which served it, and this book will show exactly how it all happened and why.

Legal order aims to prevent repeat of moorland fires

SOME of the borough’s most isolated locations have been included in a legal order which has been put into place to prevent a repeat of catastrophic fires taking hold in the future.
 Despite repeated warnings from police and firefighters about the risks, there were several incidents reported this summer due to people taking barbecues to secluded moors.
 A far-reaching public space protection order (PSPO) – which stretches from the Pennines to its furthest point at Dunford Bridge – has come into force to prevent bonfires, barbecues, fireworks and sky lanterns in the runup to the Bonfire Night period, which started this weekend.
 Anyone caught flouting the PSPO – which is in place for a minimum of three years – will be given on-the-spot £100 fines or face prosecution through the court system if they opt against paying.
 There are exemptions for private residential areas but any land that has a public right of way or public access is included in the scheme.
 During last year’s spate of fires between Marsden and Dunford

Bridge, which broke out on June 24 and saw firefighters scrambled in from Barnsley’s four stations, around 4,500 acres of land was decimated. According to figures, there were 86 call-outs to deliberate grassland fires during this year’s summer holiday period from the end of July to the beginning of September across the town – a reduction of more than 60 per cent on the previous summer – but concerns remain and the decision to implement the multi-council PSPO was taken.
 Investigating officer Allison Gwynne, whose team has been working alongside neighbouring authorities including Barnsley, Kirklees, Tameside and Oldham, said: “Although the 2018 fires were the worst in living memory, moorland fires are not uncommon. They take place every year, and there’s strong evidence to suggest that the vast majority are the result of thoughtless behaviour.
 “I believe the PSPO, used alongside education and information, helps us to significantly reduce the number of fires. “They not only cause large-scale

destruction but also needlessly endanger people and put a strain on already stretched services.
 “Last year’s fires could so easily have resulted in tragedy. It was only the tireless efforts of so many firefighters, soldiers and others – as well as a hugely impressive community response – that ensured no lives were lost.” A spokesman from the fire service said moorland blazes have been time-consuming in recent years. “We want the public to be able to enjoy the countryside and we do not wish to ruin anyone’s fun,” they added. “However, the impact of wildfires on local communities can be considerable, as can the impact on both the natural environment and the local economy where fires occur in areas where visitors may spend time. “Fires on moorland can spread incredibly quickly and pose an immediate threat to anyone in the nearby area and potentially could threaten nearby properties. These fires take a considerable amount of fire service time and resources to extinguish.”

Gritting teams gear up to swing into action A FLEET of gritters are on standby to treat Barnsley’s 321-mile road network. Last week’s cold snap, which saw the first frosts of the period, saw preparations step up for the distribution of up to 12,000 tonnes of grit stocked since the summer. Barnsley Council’s

fleet will work throughout the winter up to March next year. Residents have been encouraged to follow @ BarnsleyHighways on Twitter for local gritting updates and winter road safety tips. Cabinet spokesman Coun Chris Lamb said: “It’s beginning to feel chilly in Barnsley, and

as the temperature starts to drop towards zero and below, we’re prepared to tackle snow and ice on our roads. “Last year was a milder winter, but our highways team did a fantastic job of maintaining our roads by sending out their gritters 311 times, using 3,800 tonnes of grit and trav-

elling a total of 11,139 miles throughout the winter period. “Take care when travelling in colder weather, check that your vehicle is winter ready and leave plenty of time to get to your destination.” For more information on gritting routes and grit bin locations, visit barnsley.gov.uk/gritting.

Stylish biker Wentworth show will get climate hits road in change debate out in the open charity ride A BARNSLEY man who runs an in-home care company donned his best attire and hopped on his Harley-Davidson to raise more than £1,300 for two charities. Dan Archer, of Staithes Lane, Mapplewell, is managing director of Visiting Angels, a Chapeltown-based domiciliary care organisation. A lover of vintage motorbikes and style, Dan had been gearing up to take part in the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride – a national event which sees 8,000 people don their smartest attire and hop on classic bikes to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and the Movember Foundation. The ride, scheduled for Sheffield in September, had to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, but having raised £1,354 for the two causes, and seeing an opportunity to move the ride to his hometown, Dan decided to fuel up his HarleyDavidson and cover a 70-mile route starting in Chapeltown and finishing in Barnsley. “Prostate Cancer UK is a charity that’s very important to me,” said Dan, 46. “I do think prostate cancer isn’t well recognised in the mainstream. “It tends to be guys putting a brave face on and not talking. “The business I run cares for people across South Yorkshire, and part of the reason these two charities are important to me is that I see clients who we are providing a service to on a daily basis. “Although it was dis-

Community facility damaged by ‘louts’ THE chairman of a community garden centre has lashed out at drug users and ‘louts’ who have damaged property and left drug paraphernalia. Allan Woods, chairman of Owd Martha’s Yard at Hoyland, said teenagers have been abusive to volunteers. He also claimed ‘evidence of drug-taking’ in an area designed for young children had been found.

A LARGE-SCALE aerial theatre production which confronts climate change will take centre stage at Wentworth Woodhouse next weekend. The show, As The World Tipped, will tell the story of a climate crisis through film, visuals and an aerial display, with performers suspended on a tilting stage 18 metres off the ground. The production by Wired Aerial Theatre is set at the secretariat of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, where harassed staff fail to notice as the world around them literally and metaphorically slides towards disaster. The acclaimed show is a part of WE Wonder Noir, a nighttime festival at Wentworth Woodhouse. Sarah McLeod, chief executive of Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to see an extraordinary piece of aerial theatre here in South Yorkshire. “As The World Tipped tells a powerful tale of an ecological crisis at a time when people are taking a stand on climate change and demanding action. “It shows that culture can be used to celebrate the world we live in and highlight important issues.”

appointing to have the official ride cancelled, I knew that I couldn’t let down those who had sponsored me. I wanted to complete the ride, so I designed my own route.” Dan finished up outside Barnsley Town Hall. “It wouldn’t be good for me to raise that much money and then not do the ride,” added Dan. “I really wanted to make sure I honoured the donations I had got. “I’m proud of my hometown, even though it doesn’t necessarily get the credit it deserves.

“I feel extremely honoured to have been part of the worldwide ride. “Although I’m just one of the hundreds of thousands of riders all over the globe, to be able to do it in my hometown was really rewarding. “I’ve got a special connection with the area, especially working in the care industry, and it was important for me to be able to complete a ride, come what may.” The UK’s Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride is an extension of an Australian event which since its formation in 2012 has raised more than $18.5m across several countries.

Drug growers blighting countryside BARNSLEY Council has been urged to stiffen up its licensing checks on hydroponic retailers across the borough amid claims that cannabis growers were dumping discarded drug farm equipment in secluded spots. It’s been claimed this week that fly-tipping cases involving former cannabis-growing set-ups are on the rise across Barnsley, which has resulted in a Little Houghton Parish Council member urging the local authority to intervene. Hydroponic shops – which supply grow tents, heat lamps and nutrients – must be held accountable for vetting people who buy items, according to parish councillor Kevin Osborne. “In my experience there’s been a marked increase

in the dumping of cannabis-growing waste and associated equipment across the Barnsley countryside,” he told the Chronicle. “I call on Barnsley Council to make changes to their fly-tipping reporting system so the true scale of this clandestine and illegal activity can be revealed and to investigate how future licensing and regulation of hydroponic ‘grow’ shops who currently supply these materials can be introduced. “There’s an enormous amount of information to be had from visiting hydroponic retailers as they ought to be taking customers’ details and the council should be insisting on that. “If you went into Argos and bought a television, they would ask for your name and address for it to

be cross-checked to see if you had a TV licence. There should be no difference in this scenario. “Cannabis growing is Barnsley’s new harvest. Production of this class B drug can lead to up to 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both. However, hydroponic shops freely trade across the borough, supplying the raw materials for this illegal crop. “Drug production, and the organised crime that thrives on its supply, blights our town. Let’s have action, not words, when it comes to dealing with drugs in our community.” According to the council, figures for reported tipping are reducing thanks to proactive work by officers and the local authority’s award-winning #EverybodyThink campaign. But fly-tipped waste costs more than £200,000 per year to clear up – a figure they want to significantly reduce – and more than 2,500 reports were made during 2018. Official fly-tipping statistics for the last financial year will be revealed on Thursday, but Kevin called on the council to make public the amount of cannabis-related dumping it has dealt with. “Currently environmental

fly-tipping isn’t separated into specific fields and what we want to know is just how many associated tipping incidents there’s been,” he added. “As someone who reports everything I see, I know first-hand that cannabis dumps have increased dramatically.” Mark Giles, from the council’s Safer Neighbourhood Service, said the local authority is doing all it can to combat tippers and revealed several cases will be going before Barnsley

Magistrates’ Court in the coming weeks. “We do act on what the public tell us so we want them to give us any information which may lead to an offender’s identity being uncovered, but a witness statement is essential,” he added. “In relation to cannabis tipping, it is something we’re aware of but it’s important people don’t search through what they find as it displaces evidence which could lead to a prosecution.

“There’s a big interest in cases in the town because there’s a common interest between residents and the council – everyone’s on the same page and wants this to stop. “If the fly-tippers don’t stop, we will catch them and if they’re willing to do the crime they will be robustly dealt with in court.” n Search ‘Barnsley fly-tipping’ to report an incident online on the council’s website.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, November 5, 2019 –

CCTV could be answer for village CCTV cameras could be installed in Wombwell’s main shopping area as councillors search for long-term solutions to a spate of problems including shoplifting and aggressive begging in the village. Those issues have largely been resolved for the moment, with three suspects identified as the main culprits and police action resulting in two arrests. But councillors who represent the community want to ensure there is no repeat of the trouble and have identified the latest generation of CCTV as a potential answer, along with access to some of the council financed wardens employed for the town centre. Money for a CCTV system to cover the High Street could be made available from Barnsley Council’s ‘Principle Towns’ fund, a £5m pot of cash the authority has made available to upgrade the borough’s satellite shopping centres so they are not left behind by the redevelopment of the town centre. Getting cover for the area by wardens to help keep the town centre safe and welcoming would need negotiation within the authority, said Coun Daniel Griffin, who represents the ward, and that dialogue has already begun. “The bid for money to install CCTV would be a major element of the area’s bid for Principle Towns cash,” he said. Councillors had hoped to take steps to bring the old Burton building back into use, but it appears the venue’s owners have their own plans for its future. That freed them up to look for other improvements and a camera system is seen as a safeguard against crime and antisocial behaviour, providing reassurance to visitors that trips into Wombwell will provide a safe and welcoming environment. Councillors also hope to formalise short stay car parking in the High Street, something motorists already do although there are no parking bays and waiting restrictions are in place, with spaces only for disabled drivers.

Protection for posties as dogs pose danger

Actor Shaun hits right note for his charity recording BARNSLEY actor Shaun Dooley has raised the bar by recording an entire album featuring his celebrity friends in aid of Children in Need. Shaun, who has starred in Misfits, The Woman in Black and more recently on BBC’s Gentleman Jack, first had the idea to create an album for Children in Need two years ago. Having only been in a recording studio once, Shaun set about making his idea a reality and called upon his celebrity friends to complete the line up. “I sang The Power of Love while I was on Misfits a few years ago,” said Shaun, 45. “I came out of the experience feeling brilliant but frightened and I thought about making an album for charity. “I first put the idea to Jodie Whittaker while we were filming Dr Who because my reasoning was that she will make or break the project. “If Jodie was on board I would go ahead with it but if she wasn’t bothered I would let the project slide. Luckily she jumped at the chance.” Shaun gathered his line-up of nine other actors to perform on the album – Got It Covered – including Jim Broadbent, Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham-Carter and Luke Evans.

“I chose a Taylor Swift song called Never Grow Up because I sing it to my kids before they go to sleep,” Shaun added. “When Taylor wrote it, it was about her not wanting to grow up but I looked at the song from a parent’s perspective and how I didn’t want my kids to grow up too fast and to stay children for as long as possible. “My kids mean everything to me so it was a really personal song to sing on the album and since it’s in aid of Children in Need it worked really well.” While they were recording at the famous Abbey Road Studio in London, Shaun was surprised by

a visit from Taylor Swift who offered her support to the album. “I was in the recording booth singing a Taylor Swift song and she surprised me by coming down to the recording studio,” he said. “That was the scariest moment of the whole production process because I had to sing one of her own songs in front of her. She said she liked it which was a relief. “It’s been really great making this album. I think if you’re in a position to give something back then you should and I think we need to do more of that. “Children in Need is

such a great charity and I am a dad myself so it felt right making the album for that cause.” Shaun admits that he has raised the bar as previously only a single has been released for Children in Need. “We have set the bar very high,” he said. “I think it will be worth it to raise money. Maybe I’ll do another album, but I think to top this I will need to do a stage show or something.” To buy a copy of Got It Covered, visit Asda or all major supermarkets and to stream search ‘Get It Covered’ on Spotify, iTunes or Amazon.

A LIST of 50 ‘key addresses’ in Athersley has been compiled to help police protect Royal Mail workers from the risk of dangerous dogs after the area was highlighted as one of the worst in the country for attacks. At a police meeting held on October 21, it was revealed that the Royal Mail had collected a list of households that could potentially contain dangerous dogs, and these will be used by officers going forward. In May, it was revealed that Athersley was the second-worst place in the country for the rate of attacks and a data-gathering project saw 167 dogs identified on just one round in Athersley – 60 of which were deemed to be dangerous. But earlier this month, Sgt David Baines, who chaired the meeting, said: “The Royal Mail has given us a list of 50 key addresses that have raised concerns regarding the behaviour of dogs. We are intelligence-building at the moment and are sending the list to the council. This is the latest effort to tackle these concerns.” Having issued a warning before Christmas, a period associated with more dog attacks due to the rush to deliver cards and presents to homes, bosses told the Chronicle that 2019 has continued to be blighted by con-

cerns lodged by workers. In the summer 183 Barnsley properties were blacklisted by Royal Mail due to suspected dangerous dogs. Andrew Kipling, from the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU), said positive steps forward have been taken since they worked with the Royal Mail and made their findings public. “This was the idea of the South Yorkshire Police to compile 50 key addresses around Athersley to attempt to speak to the respective tenants working alongside Berneslai Homes,” he added. “On a positive note last year, Athersley North was the highest impacting area within Barnsley with 84 per cent of dog attacks on postal workers taking place in this area. Since April, following the joint work with Royal Mail, the CWU, police and Berneslai Homes, plus the support given to us by the Barnsley Chronicle, we have so far only seen one of our people bitten in Athersley North.” Wendy Lowder, executive director for adults and communities, added: “Royal Mail, the police and partners are continuing to share intelligence to ensure that workers are safe on their rounds and also to make sure that residents are reminded of their responsibilities for animals whilst in their property.”

Aalish’s memory being kept Huge cost of Little alive by dedicated walker Richard smoking is revealed SMOKERS in Barnsley spend on average £2,050 a year on tobacco, a public health report has revealed. In Barnsley smoking costs society around £62.4m, the report said, including factors such as lost productivity, the cost of social care and smoking-related house fires. It added: “When net income and smoking expenditure is taken into account, 8,326 households with a smoker fall below the poverty line. “If these smokers were to quit, 2,140 households would be elevated out of poverty.” Smoking prevalence in Barnsley continues to fall as part of the council-led ‘Breathe 2025’ initiative, which is aiming to make the habit invisible, and resulted in the council joining forces with Yorkshire Smokefree as part of last month’s ’Stoptober’ scheme.

THE family friend of a little girl who died from a rare form of cancer tackled a 24 mile walk and raised more than £1,000 for charity. Richard Appleton, who is originally from Darton but now lives in Belgium, walked from Sheffield Children’s Hospital to Dodworth, raising funds in memory of Aalish Naylor. Aalish was just eight when she died last year after losing her battle with neuroblastoma – a type of cancer which affects the nerve tissue. Richard and his family were very close with the Naylor family, and his daughter Kadie, 13, was best friends with Aalish. The walk saw Richard start from Sheffield Children’s Hospital and finish at Aalish’s grave in Dodworth. He raised more than £1,000 for Aalish’s Ride the Theme Dream charity, which was set up by Aalish’s mum Joanne Naylor. The charity will offer children with the rare form of cancer and their families time away from the hospital to be able to enjoy theme parks. Richard, who is a sergeant for the 2nd Battalion in The Yorkshire Regiment, said he ran most of the journey and completed it in less than three hours, despite the pouring rain. He also said the journey was ‘very emotional’. “It was very wet so I ended up running most of it,” said Richard. “I struggled with the amount of water and had to run through large puddles which wasn’t nice. “However, the walk itself was very emotional as this was Aalish’s last journey. And as much as it was a difficult journey, I kept saying to myself ‘I am not going to be in as much pain as that little girl would have been’. “I just ran straight to her resting place, bent down and gave her a kiss. “This charity is something that is very close to my heart and I want to do things like this for as long as I can.” To donate to Aalish’s Ride the Theme Dream, search the charity’s name on Facebook.

Spend an evening with ex-Red star Bruce Dyer BRUCE Dyer is a name that requires little explanation for Barnsley fans. But the former striker, who netted 57 times in 181 games across five years for the Reds, is set to give an honest account of his time at Oakwell that might surprise even the most committed supporter – as he returns to the stadium for a special series of events. Bruce, 44, has forged something of a second career as a force for change in the local community since he hung up his boots. And ‘An Evening with Bruce Dyer – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’ promises to cover everything from struggles through his playing days, to finding his faith, to his transformative work at Grimethorpe’s Miners Welfare Sports Ground and the Love Life UK Festival and Church. The talk is a partnership with Life Stories, a non-profit group which puts on events for high-profile people such as Bruce to engage audiences in smaller, intimate settings. “I’ve spoken at a few different places and really opened up

about some of the struggles I’ve had, and so many people have reached out to me for help and advice as a result,” said Bruce. “It’s been surprising, in a good way. “I went through things over my career that people wouldn’t know I went through, difficulties I had to overcome. I’ve never spoken about them publicly before. “I’m trying to be a role model and a positive inspiration for people. “If you ever wanted to hear anything about my life and career, I will be talking about it. “I’m a bit nervous, it’s personal stuff but I’m prepared now to speak about it because it may help someone else.” The evening at Oakwell, also featuring a question-and-answer session and two-course Christmas lunch, was initially planned for Saturday December 7 – but with that date selling out a further event has been organised on Friday December 6. Bruce added he was looking to announce a few more dates starting next year. For tickets, search ‘An Evening with Bruce Dyer’ online.

Woman is punished for threatening voicemails A WOMAN pleaded guilty to repeatedly leaving threatening and abusive messages to a mental health professional. Lorna Tolson, of East Pinfold, Royston, appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday having been charged with sending a communication of an indecent or offensive nature. The 27-year-old left six voicemails to a mental health professional after calling the NHS 111 number on August 8. The messages had been abusive in nature, and Tolson had

repeatedly engaged in such calls wherein she had suggested selfharm or suicide. She had been in contact with mental health services, but was described as ‘putting barriers up’ and refusing to co-operate with personnel. “I think the words ‘in crisis’ are right,” said presiding magistrate Julie Wild, addressing Tolson. “There are a lot of positives out there for you, all these agencies trying to help you, but the only person that can do anything about this is you.”

Magistrates revoked Tolson’s existing 12-month community order, issued for assaulting a medical professional in February, replacing it with a new 12-month community order and 20 days rehabilitation activity requirement (RAR). It was noted that she had completed the RAR attached to the previous order with Barnsley women’s services, and had got some benefit from it. She was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £90 and costs of £40, and given a sixweek curfew.

A week in WAB history...

Royal visit to boost Centrepoint charity 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 last November... November 6 Grand opening of new Neonatal Unit A NEW Neonatal unit will officially open this week at Barnsley Hospital. The new unit will open this Thursday and will provide care for babies born at 27 weeks and above. It will include 14 cots in total: two intensive care, three high dependency and nine special care. Work started on the £2.8 million unit earlier this year following donations to the hospital charity’s Tiny Hearts Appeal which was launched in 2014 to raise £1million.

Hundreds of local fundraisers and supporters have taken the cause to their hearts and held many sponsored activities from wing walks to bike rides to raise money. Dickie Bird, who has donated thousands to the neonatal project will be at the opening on Thursday. Lead Neonatal Nurse Angela Whelton said: “This new unit is bringing our environment into the 21st century. The hospital has invested a large amount of money to make this happen but none of it would be possible without the generosity of the people of Barnsley.” November 9

Royal Couple visiting Barnsley THE DUKE and Duchess of Cambridge will visit

Barnsley next week to open a new centre targeted at helping Barnsley’s homeless population. Prince William and Kate Middleton will visit homeless charity Centrepoint on Wednesday when they will open the branch’s new Andy Norman Learning Hub, which provides a dedicated space for young people at risk of homelessness to learn and increase their own independence. The Duke and Duchess will then help to prepare lunch for those who benefit from the charity’s services and talk with these people about their experiences. Prince William has been a patron of Centrepoint since 2005, following in the footsteps of his mother Princess Diana. Seyi Obakin, chief execu-

tive officer of Centrepoint, said: “Everyone at Centrepoint is excited to welcome our Patron the Duke of Cambridge, together with the Duchess of Cambridge, to one of our services in Barnsley. “The Duke and Duchess will have the opportunity to learn more about our work supporting homeless young people into education and employment, and also to meet some of the extraordinary young people Centrepoint works with every day in Barnsley. We hope everyone will join us in wishing them a very warm welcome.”

A Chilli night that will warm you right up... THERE has never been anything quite like The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, from their formation in 2002 and a cameo appearance at T in the Park in 2004 with The Darkness to opening the main stage ten years later. The past 15 years have seen the Chillis become the best-known bagpipe band on the planet. Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show that carries its own health warning. The band’s achievements have reached incredible heights, and with their ground-breaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and rock/ pop anthems which they proudly call ‘bagrock’, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a genuinely unique experience. The Pipers have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel-good music which appeals right across the age range. They have collected together an impressive group of musicians,

Woodrow’s last-gasp leveller lifts Barnsley CAULEY WOODROW netted a 94th-minute equaliser as Barnsley fought back from two down to draw 2-2 with Bristol City at Oakwell on Friday. The Reds are now winless in 14 matches, their worst run since 1959, but they showed great determination to fight back for a sixth draw of the sason. Barnsley were the better side in the first half but the visitors netted from their first real chance just before the break. City doubled their lead midway through the second half before Aapo Halme pulled one back. Then former City striker Woodrow scrambled home, much to the delight of home fans in a 12,178 crowd. Caretaker boss Adam Murray made two changes from the side that lost at Huddersfield six days earlier, with Halme replacing Mads Andersen at centre-back while Mallik Wilks came in for Cameron McGeehan and played up front as Conor Chaplin dropped back into central midfield. City’s Callum O’Dowda had the first shot of the game in the 15th minute, but his low 20-yard effort was easily held by goalkeeper Brad Collins. That was the only action of a dull first quarter of the game, after which Barnsley began to create regular chances. The hosts came close in the 26th minute, when they broke from a City corner and, after a good header by Chaplin, Alex Mowatt nudged the ball on to Wilks, whose shot from just inside the box on the right was touched impressively wide by goalkeeper Daniel Bentley. Wilks then had another chance when he headed wide 12 yards out from a Dimitri Cavare cross. City lost their captain and former Barnsley player Josh Brownhill to injury after half an hour. Mowatt almost found the net, but his rasping low 25-yard strike went narrowly wide of the bottom right corner after Wilks laid the ball off to him. Goalkeeper Bentley then made another superb save to touch a ten-yard Chaplin shot onto his right post after Jacob Brown crossed low from the left wing. The visitors took the lead in the 43rd minute after the referee Jared Gillet judged that Bambo Diaby had pulled the shorts of former Barnsley forward Marley Watkins, booking the home man and giving a free-kick on the left wing. Substitute Niclas Eliasson took the set piece which was headed in at the back post by veteran centre-back Ashley Williams, who was totally unmarked. The second half began, like the first, with neither side creating any meaningful opportunities for the first 25 minutes. City almost doubled their lead when Andi Weimann beat the offside trap on the right wing and went clean through at a tight angle. His shot hit Halme then Toby Sibbick and went behind for a corner.

n Aapo Halme celebrates scoring Barnsley’s first goal

From the flag kick, Eliasson claimed his second assist of the night as his set-piece was headed home by Weimann, who had escaped Kenny Dougall’s attention. Barnsley pulled one back on 76 minutes when Halme sent in a bullet header from a Mowatt corner for his second goal of the season. Woodrow almost levelled in the first of four added minutes when Cavare was released down the right side of the box and fired in a low cross which Barnsley’s top-scorer met but was off balance as he shot tamely at the goalkeeper five yards out. Diaby then headed over a Mowatt cross at the back post. The equaliser eventually came in the fourth minute of added time when Sibbick and substitute Elliott Simoes swapped passes on the left of the box and a low cross was turned in from close range by Woodrow. “To nick a point is always nice,” said Murray. “At points during the game we could have made more of the chances we had. “But overall there’s a sense of pride at the passion we’ve shown and it put a lump in my throat at the end of the game.” City head coach Lee Johnson said: “I’m disappointed with the lads today for the first time this season – we had 45 seconds to see out for the win. “We should have had enough at 2-0 up to see the game out. “The crowd had completely gone at 2-0 but we allowed them a way back into the game.” Barnsley have a crunch home clash with basement rivals Stoke City on Saturday.

FEEL SAFE Keep your home safe as dark nights really start to draw in RESIDENTS have been asked to do their bit by police to help prevent burglaries from taking place. One in three incidents last year were preventable, police claim, as many related to ‘sneak-in’ burglaries when criminals take advantage of unlocked doors and open windows.

Jack Regan, South Yorkshire Police’s crime reduction officer for Barnsley, said: “Police classify a sneak-in burglary as one where the offender has been able to enter a property via an open or insecure window or door, but this type of burglary can be easily prevented if advice is followed.

“Likewise, if you are working outdoors, and the house is unoccupied, lock the doors to ensure that no-one can sneak inside while you are at the bottom of the garden. “There are offenders in Barnsley who walk around trying door handles, hoping to gain easy, quiet access to a house,

“The starting point for many of the house burglaries in Barnsley has been an insecure window or door. Indeed up to 40 per cent of burglaries have occurred in this way in the past. “The solution to this problem is simple. Firstly, never leave windows open in unoccupied ground floor rooms.

and then to steal from within. “Help to thwart these people by ensuring that if you are at home, you have dropped the latch on your external doors, or secured the door chain. “Never leave items such as handbags, wallets, laptops and car keys on open display in unattended rooms.”

Police step up patrols for weekend HIGH visibility patrols will swamp known antisocial behaviour hotspots in Barnsley from this weekend as part of a ‘dark nights’ clampdown. The period, from the end of October to mid-November, has traditionally been one of the busiest in the year for officers and has led to South Yorkshire Police, Barnsley Council and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue working together to combat issues. Dubbed ‘Operation Dark Nights’, it has been designed to tackle firework-related concerns with youths, arson and hotspots where antisocial behaviour has been taking place. The operation has already seen test purchases carried out at premises thought to be selling alcohol and fireworks to underage people, while stores selling eggs and flour have also been asked to be cautious as the period approaches. According to figures collated by police over the last three years, incidents have been reduced and the latest operation is aiming to continue the downward trend. A spokesman said: “Extra resources will be put in place to make sure problems don’t arise.”
