‘Crystal clear’ images Clarice’s special celebration from upgraded CCTV A SIX-FIGURE overhaul of Barnsley town centre’s ageing CCTV system is picking up pace with ‘crystal clear’ images and 360-degree coverage recording all goings-on in the area. The £661,000 work was approved by Barnsley Council’s ruling cabinet members last January, paving the way for 43 new cameras. The first camera was replaced in the summer, followed by more in November, and the improvement project is due to end in the coming weeks. The old surveillance system, which has been in-situ for more than 15 years, used analogue technology with obsolete equipment, meaning the quality of images taken were often too poor to identify those pictured and potentially wanted in connection to a crime. Mark Giles, manager of the council’s Safer Neighbourhood Service, said: “It’s very much out with the old, in with the new, and Barnsley’s CCTV upgrade is now well underway. “The old cameras offered a limited field of view and relied on an operator’s input to identify and monitor ongoing incidents from a base in Doncaster. “Each camera in the old system covered the direction in which it

was facing, offering approximately 45 degrees of coverage from each column location at any given time. “The new cameras’ recorded images will therefore allow for excellent retrospective viewing should anything happen. The quality will be good enough for the identification of offenders when required.” At each column location – including new ones outside Barnsley Town Hall and the public square at The Glass Works – cameras have been installed that allow a full pan, tilt and zoom functionality. The cameras’ new monitoring hubs are based centrally at the town centre’s police station, the council’s Westgate offices and at The Glass Works – a move bosses believe is a positive step. The money set aside for the upgrade also includes six more situated in Grimethorpe, where locals have complained that because of the monitoring in Doncaster, incidents of crime have been effectively allowed to pass by. Grimethorpe’s cameras will also be viewable at Barnsley’s hubs, and £39,000 has been set aside as a ‘contingency’, taking the total cost of the scheme to £700,000.

Mark added: “CCTV is a key priority for many communities and is often the first request in any area that has suffered from problems relating to crime, disorder or antisocial behaviour. “By hosting a modern solution it allows for the wider communities of Barnsley to be monitored where additional equipment is installed. The commitment in this field by Barnsley Council will demonstrate to communities we are keen to listen and support their development. “CCTV forms a large part of the reduction in crime and disorder, however in order to have maximum impact within this specific topic the recorded footage needs to be of useable quality. “While it does not offer a physical barrier or limit people from certain areas it does form a situational crime prevention solution, however this can only be achieved by the successful use of recorded data. For successful use the recorded data must meet the evidential criteria required and as such, this upgrade will support this. “The upgraded CCTV system will provide 75 per cent more coverage per current camera location, as such this will have an impact on health, safety and emergency resilience.”

CENTURION: Clarice Wood. Picture: Wes Hobson. PD088510 A WOMAN enjoyed a double celebration on New Year’s Eve as she prepared to ring in 2020 as she reached her 100th birthday. Clarice Wood was born on New Year’s Eve 1919 and celebrated her big day surrounded by family and friends. Born in Grace Street, Barnsley – which is now Union Street – Clarice grew up with her two sisters Annie and Winnie before she married husband Harry in 1940 and moved to Worsbrough Common, where she still lives. She worked at a bobbin mill, as a conductress with Yorkshire Traction and then for the Co-op until she retired in 1985, when she was 67. “She has always been a very sociable person,” said Clarice’s daughter, Anne Nelson.

“She loves to sing and have a laugh with people. She still lives on her own, even now, and she won’t be moved. I think it keeps her going, which is great.” To celebrate Clarice’s birthday, Anne threw a party for all the family to get together and celebrate, as well as bring in the new year. “We had a party and she threw in a couple of songs and had a dance. It was so nice to get everyone together to celebrate.” Despite making it to 100 years old, Clarice doesn’t have any advice for living a long life and is taking her age in her stride said Anne. “I would say eat a good meal,” added Anne. “My mum eats whatever she wants when she wants it and I think that has helped her to reach 100.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, January 7, 2020 –

Do the figures for burglary tell the full story? OFFICIAL burglary figures released for Barnsley have been criticised by residents for ‘not being a true reflection’ of what has happened. According to the statistics which were released last Tuesday, police recorded a 16 per cent reduction in 2018/19, a period which runs from April 2018 to March 2019. However, residents in worst-hit areas such as Shafton have blamed 101 – the police’s under-fire telephone reporting system – as being responsible for the ‘inaccurate’ figures due to long waiting times encountered by callers reporting burglaries. Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, attended a public meeting in Shafton at the end of November to allay concerns about a claimed lack of police presence being responsible for the claimed burglary spree. Dave North, chairman of Shafton Parish Council, said: “If there’s police presence it automatically deters burglars from even trying. “But we haven’t had that and there’s a sense that it is the main reason for the rise. “The summer was particularly bad and there’s genuine concern as Shafton has a lot of elderly residents. The 101 issues is something that’s always brought up at crime meetings.” According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), 1,411 residential burglaries took place in 2018 in Barnsley, while a further 646 incidents of business-related offences took the total figure to 2,057.

But their figures for 2019 are due to be revealed in the spring. Parish councillor Les Holt said it was a ‘total disgrace’ and blamed delayed pick-up times associated with 101 – a system which South Yorkshire Police say receives more than 2,000 calls per day. “People give up waiting to speak to a 101 operator because they are left on hold for 30 minutes, sometimes even longer,” Les added. “There are a lot of frightened, elderly and vulnerable people in our village who can’t report crime. “They trust PCSOs and waiting 30 minutes to speak to an operator after they have been a victim of crime is unacceptable.” The force said it is treating burglary as one of its top priorities this year, and officers have increases their patrols in the town’s worst-hit areas such as Shafton, Mapplewell and Royston. “Key crime types such as house burglary reduced by 16 per cent in 2018/19 and this position has been maintained through 2019,” said Chief Superintendent Sarah Poolman. “Throughout 2019, across all realms of policing, our objective has been to continually improve the service we provide to our communities and to keep Barnsley safe. “Our response times to incidents have improved dramatically. “Through further investment in our neighbourhood teams, we have been tackling those issues that matter most to our local communities.”

Bus travel made ‘more attractive’ BUS fare changes have come into effect. Stagecoach is encouraging customers to buy tickets online or through the Stagecoach Bus App before travelling in a bid to lower the amount of time spent at bus stops and so speed up journey times.

John Young, commercial director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “Simplifying tickets, investment in the improved Stagecoach Bus App (which allows you to track your bus live on a map) and contactless payment on all our buses continues to help us make bus travel more attractive.”

SPREADING THE WORD: A new group has been set up to promote the history of a Grade II-listed church in Barnsley town centre. The Friends of Barnsley St Mary group at St Mary’s, on Church Street, has been formed in order to increase the number of open days, talks and guided tours.

The original building at St Mary’s is believed to date back to 1090, but the existing church, built in 1822, retains a tower constructed in 1380 and it’s this rich history members want to tell people about. The group’s first get together will take place at the church on January 17 from noon until 1pm.

Church tries to keep its clock ticking

FUTURE UP IN THE AIR: Brampton Christ Church’s John Doyle, who is one of those desperate to save the clock which was installed in 1905. Picture: Wes Hobson.

A HISTORIC church needs support from the public to ensure its more-than 100-year-old tower clock can ring out once more. The clock at Brampton Christ Church, installed in 1905 by Smith of Derby, has been out of action for weeks as the parochial church council considers its options for the renovation – which it says will cost more than £3,000. It is, surprisingly, not the original clock that is the issue – council members say the hand-winding and clockwork mechanisms are still intact – but the more modern automatic winding mechanism since installed, which has been replaced several times in recent years due to components burning out. In an attempt to avoid the reoccurrence of the costly problem, council members contacted the original clockmaker to explore new options, with a safer low-voltage system looking like the answer. But with the 164-year-old church receiving no funding from either the borough or parish council, volunteers and council members are looking to the public to help them fund the repairs. Church warden Steve Scutt said: “We’re aiming to get the clock working again as soon as funds allow. “The church council recognise the importance of the clock to local residents, and we’re regularly asked about it. “However, we have just had to spend a considerable sum carrying out major repairs to the roof so funds for anything else are very limited at present.” To support the tower clock appeal, contact Steve on 07910 514499.

Woman who ‘helped change lives’ mourned THE founder of a charity set up to support blind and partially sighted people and which ‘helped to change lives’ has died. Carol Green, 70, of Darton, was found dead at home on New Year’s Day, with the cause currently unknown. Friends of Carol, who started up the Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted Association more than 30 years ago, said her death is a ‘grave loss’ for volunteers and members of the association. Fran Lusha, vice chairman of the Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted Association, started off as a volunteer at the centre when she joined with her husband Victor around 25 years ago. The couple, 69 and 84 respectively, said Carol ‘helped to change their

life for the better’ and that they were very good friends with her. “We can’t really believe the news and we are devastated,” said Fran, of Wombwell. “Carol was such a wonderful woman. She founded the association more than 30 years ago and she has worked so hard for nothing back. It’s unbelievable the amount of people she helped, all because she was born blind herself. “She has four children she brought up all on her own, two of them were blind and two were sighted. “It was because of the difficulties she had and the help she didn’t have that she wanted to help others.” The Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted Association, based on Regent Street, Barnsley, is said to have helped

MP Dan in train claim BARNSLEY Central MP and Sheffield City Region mayor Dan Jarvis has called for ‘urgent and decisive action’ as the transport secretary announced train operator Northern Rail could be stripped of its franchise. Transport secretary Grant Shapps announced last Thursday – the same day that rail fares were hiked by 2.7 per cent – that the

process to bring the network back into public hands had already started, calling the current service ‘unacceptable’ and saying Northern could either be stripped of its franchise or issued a short-term contract. But Mr Jarvis said the government should share some responsibility for a ‘catalogue of disasters’ with the franchisee, run by Germanowned firm Arriva.

an estimated 8,000 people. “This place has changed our lives,” said Victor. “We didn’t know anything about what sort of support we needed but when we came out of the association for the first time we nearly danced. It was amazing. “Carol had a big impact on us right from the start. She took all our worries away. “It really is a sad loss, we are all volunteers for Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted Association but we are all friends as well. We are all very close.” Carol was made an MBE for her services to the Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted Association in 2016. The association also made the shortlist for ‘WONDERFUL WOMAN’: Carol Green, founder of the Barnsley Blind and Partially Sighted the 2019 Proud of Association, has died aged 70. Barnsley Awards.

Bid to trace the good Samaritan shopper who helped Elaine

A WOMAN is appealing to find the good Samaritan who helped her after she fainted while out shopping. Elaine Clay, 69, was shopping in Morrisons on Saturday, December 28 when she began feeling dizzy and light-headed and called out for help. Elaine, who was on her own, suffers from dizzy spells and feared she was about to faint. “My mum keeps going dizzy and has fainted in the past,” said Elaine’s daughter Caroline Hanson. “I think she was scared it was going to happen again, especially since she was on her own, and she called out to the people in the aisle for help should she faint.” A woman came forward to help Elaine, and lowered her to the ground and alerted members of staff to help. “At the time mum was really annoyed that she had nearly done all her shopping and only had

5

oven chips to buy and I think she was a little embarrassed as well,” said Caroline, 44. After helping Elaine, the woman helped further by finishing and paying for Elaine’s shopping as well as her own. “I am glad this lady was there,” added Caroline. “If my mum had properly fainted she could have hit her head and caused herself further injury. “We want to thank the woman who helped – she went out of her way to help my mum and then went above and beyond by paying for her shopping. “There’s a lot of bad news happening at the moment and we want to say thank you for a really kind and selfless act.” n If you, or someone you know, helped Elaine in Morrisons, Barnsley on December 28 at 11.30am please contact ch@barnsley-chronicle.co.uk or phone 734263.

Council explains its park security decision AN out-of-town security company based nearly 100 miles away employed by Barnsley Council to keep the public out of a fencedoff park was chosen because a local rival ‘may have been harassed’ by members of the public. Middlesbrough-based Vistech Security – under fire due to its workers’ alleged verbal abuse towards members of the Save Penny Pie Park campaign group – have been at the site, off Dodworth Road, since it was closed to the public in early December. Complaints were made by local councillors as to why a local firm was not chosen for the job, but the council told the Chronicle that the decision was made from its past experiences – but added that Vistech’s involvement may not be a long-term arrangement. Coun Chris Lamb, cabinet spokesperson for environment and transport, said: “For an initial short-term period, we’ve contracted an experienced security company to protect the public and the workforce. “An out-of-area security company was contracted as experience shows that local companies involved in local sensitive schemes may be subject to harassment.

Help out little and large duo ONE half of a fundraising duo is asking people to get in touch with him if they want to fundraise for Barnsley Hospice. Gavin Coles makes up 50 per cent of the ‘Little and Large’ fundraising team alongside Steve Gilbert. The pair have held a variety of fundraising events, raising £25,000 for the hospice and money for other charities. In their Facebook group, which sees the duo post updates on the fundraising challenges they host, Gavin wrote: “With 2020 almost upon us I know a lot of you are thinking of getting fit in the new year so why not give yourself a goal to aim for and raise some cash for an amazing place – the Barnsley Hospice. “Inbox me with any ideas, crazy or just something you’ve always wanted to do and if I can I’ll help you achieve it.” Anyone who wants to get in touch is asked to search for the Little and Large Charity Challenges on Facebook.

“The A628 Dodworth Road/ Broadway junction improvement scheme is expected to take approximately 12 to 18 months, and we’ll be reviewing our security arrangements as the scheme progresses.” Campaigners against plans to create a new traffic gyratory within Penny Pie Park were allegedly told to ‘f**k off and get a life’ by Vistech staff after the entire park – including public footpaths – were fenced-off unannounced. A complaint was subsequently lodged and the matter is being investigated. A spokesman from the firm told the Chronicle: “Regarding the conduct of Vistech officers at Penny Pie Park, I would like to take this opportunity to confirm that we are currently investigating this matter and liaising with Barnsley Council.” Coun Peter Fielding, who represents the Dodworth ward, said that trust between the council

and the public was at an ‘all-time low’ and added: “The most recent example of this was the decision to close Penny Pie Park without any notice to the local elected members or the community. “It was done in a manner that appears designed to most antagonise users of the park who disagree with the council’s policy on the future of the park. “Only the day before I had been in communication with a senior officer about forthcoming works on the park and to say I received an incomplete and misleading reply is something of an understatement. “It is clear to me that there is no trust between members like myself and this administration and that lack of trust will continue to make working co-operatively and collaboratively very difficult indeed. “I will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of my residents and carry out all the duties expected of a good local councillor. But until there is a significant change in the way this administration interacts with those who disagree with it and stops trying to avoid scrutiny by constantly changing the rules, I will be unwilling to work with the administration in any way that could be construed as validating its activities.”

Joan’s big-hearted gesture A BARNSLEY village’s first defibrillator has been installed, thanks to a donation from a 92-year-old lady. The lifesaving equipment is now on the side of Tankersley Welfare Hall, Pilley Lane. The money to fund the equipment was kindly donated by Pilley resident Joan Shepherd, who has lived in the village since 1957 and who wanted to do something to help her community. Joan’s late husband Colin Shepherd was pit manager at the

Wordsworth Travel

local Wharncliffe Silkstone Colliery, and Joan donated the money in his memory. “It was such a kind a generous thing Joan did,” said Tankersley Community Society treasurer John Hopkinson, whose group uses the welfare hall and who helped organise the installation of the device. “We don’t have a resource like this in the village, and we hope we never need it, but we are glad to have it nonetheless and it is a testament to the generosity of Joan.”

DON AIREY, keyboard player with Deep Purple, and Brian Downey, former drummer with Thin Lizzy, are pleased to announce a UK Tour with support from Rebecca Downes. It is hard to find a name amongst all those that over the last 30 years have left their mark in the history of rock that has not utilised Don’s keyboard skills at some point. Amongst them are Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Brian May, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and, obviously, Deep Purple, the band of which Don Airey has been a full-time member for fifteen years. Meanwhile, Brian Downey needs no introduction.

Hailing originally from Dublin, Brian enjoyed his first taste of success in Ireland with the top 20 hit ‘Morning Dew’, before forming Orphanage with Phil Lynott. The two went on to form the legendary Thin Lizzy with Eric Bell, and Brian remained a constant member until the band split in 1983. Having worked on Phil Lynott’s solo albums and the subsequent Grand Slam project, Brian moved back to Dublin around the time of Phil’s death in January 1986. Brian remained in constant demand as a touring and session drummer and regularly played live shows and recorded with renowned guitarist Gary Moore.

Brian is often cited as being an influence by many of the world’s top drummers and feels invigorated to be playing the songs he co-wrote in Thin Lizzy with his new band Alive and Dangerous. Don Airey and Brian Downey will be performing at the Sheffield Foundry on February 26 and we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to the event. To win, just answer this question: How old is Don Airey? Send your answer with your name and number to competitions@wearebarnsley.com or post your answer to WAB Don Airey, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The closing date is Friday, January 17.

Barnsley reach fourth round

HEADS UP: Wayne Rooney is challenged by Bambo Diaby

Reds can’t spoil Rooney show BARNSLEY couldn’t deny Derby County and their new recruit Wayne Rooney victory in a high-profile Championship clash at Pride Park. The former England star was handed the captaincy on his debut for the Rams, who won 2-1 to keep Barnsley second-bottom of the table. It was a first defeat in six outings for the Oakwell side last Thursday. Rooney set up Derby’s opener just before half-time. Jack Marriott atoned for a number of squandered chances when he poked home the former Manchester United and Everton star’s free-kick. Barnsley levelled soon after the break when Elliot Simoes tapped in after Derby goalkeeper Ben Hamer spilled Conor Chaplin’s shot.

But Martyn Waghorn restored Derby’s lead on 57 minutes, when he fired home Andre Wisdom’s low cross, and the hosts held on for the three points. Rooney, whose last game was at the end of October for DC United, played the full 90 minutes in the centre of midfield. While the 34-year-old joined Derby on an 18-month playercoach deal in August, the former England captain was ineligible to play until January. Rooney, England’s all-time record goalscorer, had the chance to mark his debut with a goal, but miscued a header from a few yards out and the ball dribbled wide. “It was a big night for myself, a big night for the club, and a lot of excitement,” he said. “But the main priority was to get

HUDDERSFIELD Town head to Oakwell on Saturday for a key Championship survival clash. The West Yorkshire club are striving to avoid successive relegations, having dropped out of the Premier League after two seasons. They are 20th, three places and seven points better off than the Reds, after a 5-2 home defeat by Stoke Ciy in their last league match. Huddersfield parted company with German head coach Jan Siewert

in mid-August and appointed Danny Cowley, the former Lincoln City manager, in his place. Since then, they have picked up seven wins in 20 matches, one of them against Barnsley at the John Smith’s Stadium in October. Huddersfield went two ahead through Christopher Schindler and Karlan Grant, but Barnsley pulled one back through Jacob Brown to ensure a tense finish. Their last visit to Oakwell was for a 1-1 drawn in February 2017.

DIRECT LEATHER of Mexborough

Barnsley first-team coach Matt Rose said: “The first 15 minutes, we had a game plan and it worked very well. “We dropped a bit after that and invited them back into the game with too many long balls. “There was a rough spell for five minutes in the second half when they equalised but I think we rode that well and in the end it was quite professional and job done. “For us it was important to keep our run of good performances and results going and our confidence up. “It was important not to follow the Derby defeat with another defeat. That would have really dented our confidence so this was very important for us. “Crewe are a good team. If you let them play, they will cause you problems. What we managed to do was stifle that. “I don’t think anyone wanted a replay, with the amount of games you get in the Championship. “We had very good support in the away end and the players welcome that. It’s important the players thank the fans after every game because they are the heartbeat of the club.” Scorer Thomas said: “It’s great to get through to the next round. These cup-ties are never easy and we had a meeting to make sure every player was up for it.”

three points, and it feels good to finally make my debut and help the team win. “It was a difficult game, I thought Barnsley played well, and made it tough for us, but we worked hard and, created chances. “We could have made it easier for ourselves, but we dug in and worked hard until the end.” Barnsley head coach Gerhard Struber pledged: “We will be better in the next game. “With young players, it is normal that the performances go a little up and down. “The most important thing is that overall, we keep going forward.” Barnsley are three points adrift of the safety zone and Struber added: “It is very close and we have big chances to achieve our aim and stay in the league.”

BARNSLEY scored twice in the final 15 minutes to win 3-1 at Crewe Alexandra and book a place in round four of the FA Cup for the first time since 2013. Jacob Brown provided the Reds with a flying start when he volleyed home a third-minute opener against the League Two promotion chasers. Crewe goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen made two good saves to keep his side in it before Paul Green headed an equaliser after the break. But Conor Chaplin’s 75th-minute header and Luke Thomas’ late third goal ensured Gerhard Struber’s side made progress. Thomas scored on the breakaway after keeper Jaaskelainen went up for a free-kick as Crewe pushed for an equaliser. Jaaskelainen made good saves from Alex Mowatt and Thomas as Barnsley bossed the first half. Green headed in Crewe’s first effort on goal to equalise three minutes after the restart. But Barnsley bounced back well and Clarke Odour was unlucky to see his inswinging free-kick tipped on to the bar in the 59th minute. Chaplin finally put Barnsley in front once more with 15 minutes remaining before Thomas rolled into an empty net with the last kick of the tie after Jaaskelainen’s upfield foray.

Big changes on the way at village hall A VILLAGE hall in Mapplewell is in need of a makeover with ongoing efforts to raise money to refurbish the main hall. Staff at Mapplewell and Staincross Village Hall have applied for multiple grants to refurbish the facility with a fitted stage, a sound system and lights. Earlier in the year, the hall’s walls were repainted, the entrance redesigned and the smaller events room redecorated. This was helped by donations including from the Mapplewell and Staincross Over 55s Club and the local ward alliance. However, the hall manager, Nick Hibberd, is now wanting to tackle the main hall, which he believes could be a great concert venue for Mapplewell and Staincross. “The big thing now is that we want to refurbish our main hall to make sure we have a proper stage, fitted lighting and proper sound systems so that we can have and watch more professional productions,” he said.

“We have just put in a few grant applications and believe it or not, the funding we’re looking for is £155,000 to do it right. This is because we have to strip the walls back, refurbish the timber, install a new fire door and rear door and put up scaffolding. “We’re currently at stage two of the grant process, but are still not certain it’ll go ahead.” To raise the money needed for the building work, the village hall is inviting people to join in the Table Top Tot Auction, for parents to buy and sell their old baby items. “We are wanting people to get involved in our auction which will be £10 a table. “The profits from bookings of the tables will go back into the village hall. “We want this bring the community together and offer something more for Mapplewell and the surrounding area.” The Table Top Tot auction will take place on January 25. To book a table, call 381006 or email mappvillagehall@ yahoo.co.uk for more information.

A killer new video

A BARNSLEY band have shot their latest music video which pays homage to their roots. Killers and Kings are a Barnsleybased 70s-style rock band who were formed two years ago. They have been preparing to shoot their second music video for their song Feeling Alright, which features their new bass player. “We have made the video like a house party because the song is really happy and upbeat,” said lead guitarist Dale Boden. “The song is about getting back out

there after the breakdown of a relationship and we wanted the video to reflect how happy we are. “We have had a year off and this celebrates our comeback so we wanted to go all out. We’ve done music videos before but they were filmed in the studio when we were singing, so this one is different.” The video was shot in Wilthorpe and included appearances from people who have helped the band along the way. Killers and Kings are available to listen to on all major streaming sites.

Disability theatre group to perform at The Civic A THEATRE group made up of actors with disabilities is performing its original show at The Civic. Cross The Sky is an integrated theatre company based at The Civic and is made up of actors with learning and physical disabilities, which is co-ordinated by three specialist artists. The group’s original work ‘Up In The Attic’ will be performed at The Civic and draws on members’ personal experiences with autism. It tells the story of a man who goes on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance as he learns to let go of his childhood and embrace his independent adult life. The coming-of-age story incorporates Gothic horror and original songs developed through improvisation workshops exploring disability pride. The theatre group appeared on TV over Christmas alongside Kylie Minogue on Channel 4’s Kylie’s Secret Night after surprising the Barnsley group with a visit to rehearsals. Cross The Sky caught the singer’s attention after sending her a video of the group rehearsing her 2018 song ‘Dancing’ on Twitter. Up In The Attic takes place on February 12 at The Civic from 7.30pm. For more information or to book tickets, please contact the box office on 327000 or visit The Civic website.
