‘Criminals to benefit from PCSO plan’ UNION officials believe plans to modernise the role of PCSOs in South Yorkshire Police could leave some with such large pay cuts they will have to find work elsewhere. But they have been accused by the force of issuing ‘inflammatory and inaccurate’ information about the future prospects for their PCSO members. A review of the role PCSOs play is going on at present and is expected to be concluded at the end of the month, when results will be used by force bosses to work out the best way to use PCSOs in future. They were introduced when Lord Blunkett was Home Secretary, as an answer to providing a visible uniformed presence in communities, without the cost of using more highly trained police constables. But since then, costs have risen and it is understood it costs more to employ a PCSO than a police officer in the early years of their service. Officers have greater powers, including that of arrest, and more flexible working arrangements meaning they can be deployed more easily around the clock

INBRIEF... Vital support for young carers BERNESLAI Homes is working with children’s charity Barnardo’s to raise awareness about young carers and support available to them. A young carer is a child or young person under 18 who provides care for a family member who has a physical illness or disability, mental health difficulties, sensory or learning disability or has a problematic use of drugs or alcohol. To help encourage young carers to identify themselves, representatives from the Barnsley Young Carers’ Council delivered a presentation at Horizon Community College to share their own experience of caring. During the presentation, the young carers showed their designs for an information card which uses QR code technology to allow young people to access information and support from both Barnardo’s and Berneslai Homes.

to suit the changing demands of keeping communities safe. According to the union Unite, which represents PCSOs, South Yorkshire Police have a range of options. “Several proposals envisage reducing the PCSO service to office hours Monday to Friday, potentially giving carte blanche to criminals outside these hours,” a spokesman said. “Unite estimates that if the proposals are adopted it will mean that PCSOs will lose £450 a month, as they will no longer receive shift pay. “The union believes the cuts will be so severe, existing officers will be forced to seek alternative employment, which will further damage community cohesion.” A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “No decisions have been made and it is disappointing the union has chosen to issue inflammatory and inaccurate statements, which only serve to cause concern for our communities and PCSOs. To suggest any of the options would cause the police presence to disappear, or that it will affect the levels of criminality outside office hours is misleading.”

Q THE music industry executive who signed Oasis in the early 90s will be in Barnsley this week for ‘an evening with’ event.

Safety campaign urges checks on elderly neighbours

Peacock’s climate emergency worry BARNSLEY East MP Stephanie Peacock has backed the Labour Party’s declaration of a ‘national climate and environment emergency’. The decision was taken by the party in the House of Commons, following a wave of motions passed by local councils declaring a climate emergency and calls to tackle increasing global temperatures. The ‘Climate Emergency’ is an internationally recognised declaration being used around the world to publicly declare concern over the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) findings. The IPCC’s recent special report, describes the enormous harm that a two-degree Celsius rise in global temperatures would cause. Last week it was revealed that the UK will miss almost all its 2020 nature targets, with 14 out of 19 biodiversity targets currently not being met by the government.

Chance to learn something new A BARNSLEY Adult Skills and Community Learning open day will be taking place tomorrow. Anyone who is interested in learning something new, studying for a qualification or wants to see what courses are available can attend the event and speak to the team. There are lots of courses available including maths, English, ICT, childcare, art, digital photography and more. The event is on from 10am to 7pm at Wellington House, Barnsley.

Q DEPARTED: Welcome to Yorkshire supremo Sir Gary Verity in Barnsley.

Questions to be answered over tourism link BARNSLEY Council has confirmed its support for Welcome to Yorkshire in the wake of controversy over Sir Gary Verity’s conduct – though a question mark still remains over the council’s future funding for the tourism body. Welcome to Yorkshire was established a decade ago, under the leadership of Sir Gary Verity, who earned his knighthood for bringing the Tour de France opening stage to the county and then capitalising on the success by establishing the annual Tour de Yorkshire event.

But he left the organisation, citing health grounds, as it emerged he was paying back a five-figure sum in expenses claimed while in the job. His conduct towards staff was also called into question. Sheffield City Council, which contributes £50,000 a year to the body, has confirmed its payments are being suspended until investigations into Sir Gary are completed. Barnsley Council will make a decision later on the future of the £15,000 a year the authority contributes to Welcome to Yorkshire’s work.

Matt Gladstone, executive director, said: “We have assurances from Welcome to Yorkshire that their investigation will be completed thoroughly and within a timely manner. “Once we have the outcome of this investigation, we’ll then make an informed decision regarding our £15,000 annual contribution to Welcome to Yorkshire. “We’re still supportive of Welcome to Yorkshire during this time, and we’re proud hosts of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire in Barnsley town centre on Friday May 3.”

A FIRE safety campaign encouraging people to check on those over 60 has started after a spate of recent fire deaths involving elderly people. The ‘Find the Time’ campaign sees South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue encouraging people to check on their older relatives and friends, and a checklist has been produced to see whether they would benefit from a home safety check by local firefighters. And the campaign has this week seen a huge billboard driven around Barnsley’s streets asking - when did you last find time for the older people in your life? “The motivation behind this campaign is really simple - in the last six weeks we’ve had a number of fire deaths that have involved people over 60 years old,” said area manager Steve Helps, head of the joint police and fire community safety department. “On their own these incidents are really tragic and when put alongside figures from our recent history we can see, quite clearly, that as people get older their fire risk increases.” More than half of all fatal accidental house fires in South Yorkshire since 2013 have involved people over 60 years old. “This is due to a range of factors - be it living alone, having limited mobility or a hearing impairment or taking medication that causes drowsiness that can make older people more likely to have a fire and less able to escape,” said Steve. “Fortunately there are things that we can all do to help. We’ve published some advice on simple things that people can do themselves to help make their loved ones safer. Then, if people still feel like they would benefit from a home safety check, the form on our website only takes a matter of minutes to complete. “We can only help the people we know about and therefore rely on family and friends to get in touch with us. We know everyone is really busy but a quick visit makes a huge difference.” Q For more information visit findthetime.

Kids are getting in touch with nature A COMPOSTING campaign to encourage more people in South Yorkshire to help the environment is being launched. Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Waste Partnership is organising competitions with prizes to get homes, schools and community groups involved. This will begin with a poster competition for schools and a social media competition for residents. Plastic compost bins are effective and easy to set up and available at most DIY stores or online. Although the waste

treatment facility at Manvers diverts 96 per cent of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham household waste from landfill, composting at home gets more use out of garden waste and saves space in bins and money on fertilisers for the garden. “It’s a win-win because it’s beneficial for the environment and your pocket,” said community education liaison officer at Manvers, Rebecca Wilson. Infant and junior school children will be able to design a poster to help promote composting.

Q Barnsley Council invited the media to watch the crushing of a Transit van which has been used in fly-tipping.

Crushing blow for fly-tippers A FLY-TIPPER’S van suffered an increasingly common fate in the jaws of a wrecking machine after being seized by enforcement officers cracking down on what has become a scourge of modern society. Barnsley Council introduced new powers which allows them to crush offenders’ vehicles last summer and this is the latest to be crushed for recycling after being seized by officers. The uncompromising approach is part of a two-pronged attack on those who litter both urban streets and rural lanes with large quantities of domestic and industrial waste. While the council is increasingly active at investigating offences

and prosecuting offenders, officials are also encouraging the public to help by passing on information if they see fly-tippers at work, or have suspicions about those involved. That is believed to be the reason for a spike in reported fly-tipping incidents in the last two months, a turn around from a situation where incidents appeared to be gradually reducing. In March, the council took 358 reports of fly-tipping across the borough, more than 11 for every day of the month and up by around ten per cent on ‘normal’ levels of tipping. But it is expected that as officers get to grips with the main

offenders – much of the problem is blamed on a relatively small number of tippers – numbers will once again start to go down. The council has various sanctions available for those who are caught, with prosecution at court the most severe and those who end up before magistrates can face harsh fines in addition to costs and other charges. They may also see their vehicles crushed, though some can be returned to their owner if they make an application to get it back. Council spokesman Mark Giles said: “We want members of the public to report what they see, we want people to support us in what we are doing.

Experts on hand to offer help in bowel cancer awareness month A CANCER support service will be visiting Barnsley this week to provide information about bowel cancer. April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and Macmillan Cancer Support is encouraging people to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease by operating a mobile service. The service will provide information and support to those suffering with the disease, as well as those caring for a cancer patient. Bowel cancer is the UK’s fourth most common cancer, but it is treatable and the earlier it is diagnosed the easier it is to treat. Wayne Priestley, information and support specialist for Macmillan, said: “Knowing what changes to look for and when to see your doctor could make a real difference. Don’t be scared or embarrassed and don’t ignore them if you have symptoms. Get them checked.” Q GET advice at the awareness roadshow.

“If they see someone dropping rubbish off, they should get a registration number because we will follow it up.” The council also has other surveillance tactics which has allowed them to catch fly-tippers in the act, without being aware they were under scrutiny, leading to some high profile prosecutions. Offenders caught for low-level offences may get off more lightly – with a £400 fixed penalty ticket. In cases where fly-tipped rubbish can be traced back to an individual, they too will face a fixed penalty of £250. The moves mean Barnsley Council now regards itself as the

most active in South Yorkshire at pursuing the fly-tippers who also land the authority with the costs of clearing up after them, in addition to disfiguring the environment. A further restriction on fly tippers is new roadside checks which are now being carried out regularly by council officials and other agencies, including police and the Department of Works and Pensions. It is known that those involved in one type of offending may be involved in other breaches of the law and all the bodies involved now share intelligence, helping them to build a picture of those involved, helping to bring successful prosecutions.

Brexit debate goes BOOK OF THE MONTH on with calls for a new public vote

BARNSLEY AT WAR 1939-45 By Mark Green

RRP £14.99 OFFER PRICE £10.39 The ‘eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’ of 1918 was supposed to be the conclusion of the ‘war to end all wars’.



Just twenty-one years after the armistice was signed, Barnsley, its borough and the world braced itself for a global conflict that history would eventually testify to be deadlier than the war that destroyed a generation of Barnsley men and boys. The books narrative explains in detail Barnsley’s transition from its interwar years, to the euphoria of victory in 1945, supported by a timeline of national events that helped shape the town. Indeed, Barnsley rose to the challenge as it did years earlier, women once again revealed their rightful place in society as equals, miners smashed productivity records, men and women took up arms in anticipation of invasion. The Second World War had arguably the same impacts on Barnsley as the Great War, further local names etched on the memorials as a timeless reminder of the men, women and children who died or gave their life for their town, county and country. Never to be forgotten.

This entitles the bearer to receive Barnsley at War 1939-45 at the discounted price of £10.39 in the Barnsley Chronicle Bookshop only.

MORE than 500 people across Yorkshire and Humber who voted leave in the 2016 EU Referendum have written to their MPs to demand a public vote on Brexit. They are among thousands of leave voters from across the UK who have contacted their MP to demand a People’s Vote in the last few weeks – including leave voters from Barnsley. Many say they voted leave in 2016 because they believed ‘broken promises’ about Brexit, made by the Leave campaign: that the UK could keep all its existing influence in Europe, could easily have access to the same trade deals, and that Brexit would mean an extra £350m each week for the NHS. Mum of five Katharine Withers, of Royston, said she and her husband voted leave but three years on since the EU Referendum, the couple have changed their minds about Brexit. “It seemed to me that the EU had some sort of stranglehold on the UK,” said Katharine, 49. “I thought the economy would end up being better off due to the UK being more independent and self-sustainable that we’d do better on our own. “And it was because of the numbers of Eastern Europeans moving here.

Z DAN JARVIS: MP’s constituency includes Royston “It’s not that they were taking a job from me, I’m currently unable to work due to ill health, but I was concerned that they were sending the money they earned back home to other countries.” Now Katharine believes she and other leave voters have been misled. “I can’t see how anyone would be pleased with this deal. And I also felt guilty after I voted Leave. I certainly didn’t want to get rid of foreigners – it was more about the economy and keeping money in the country. A lot of the comments on Facebook are so derogatory and xenophobic,” she added.

“I certainly feel we’ve been misled. Things were very general in the campaign, and put forward in a way that made us think we were voting for something else. “I support a People’s Vote because I honestly think there’ll be a lot of other people like me who feel misled, that information wasn’t clear enough. “Now there’s been more information about Brexit, people would be more informed. “It needs to be re-put to people in a way they can understand. “I haven’t yet decided which way I would vote in a new referendum but it would probably be to stay or abstain. I think a lot would depend on the withdrawal agreement. We need to sort out what we want first and then once we have a clearer outcome, put it to the people.” Campaigners for another vote say an increasing number of leave voters say they have been convinced of the need to hold a People’s Vote because of the ‘emerging realities of Brexit’ such as the rising cost of living, lost investment, job cuts and factories closing or moving abroad. Last month, a million people from across the UK marched through central London to demand a People’s Vote on Brexit.

Cannabis warning CANNABIS users across Barnsley are being encouraged to review their consumption. The Barnsley Recovery Service has launched ‘Barnsley’s Respect THC’ campaign. It aims to help those concerned about the amount of cannabis they smoke, using posters and social media to help people understand the issues and showing easy ways people can get support from the Barnsley service. Emily Todd, director of services for West and South Yorkshire, said: “In general, cannabis sold on the street is getting stronger, with higher levels of THC, the compound that effects the brain. Stronger cannabis can result in users experiencing a number of issues, including anxiety, depression and mental health problems.” If you are affected by cannabis misuse, call 779066 or visit service/barnsley-recovery-steps.

CCTV image released after arson AN image has been released of a man police are keen to identify following an arson last Monday. Emergency services were called to Goldthorpe Police Station, after it was reported that two response cars were on fire. A council van was also damaged, as was the side of the police station. Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to identify and speak to in connection to what happened. Detective Inspector Mick Allat said: “This reckless and irresponsible act has taken two operational police cars off the roads which will cost around £26,000 to replace. “Thankfully no one was injured but this was still an incredibly serious incident and we are working hard to identify those responsible. “As part of that work, I’d like to ask for your help. Do you recognise the man in the CCTV image? We believe he may hold important information. Did you see or hear anything suspicious in the early hours of Monday morning? “If you can help, please call 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously quoting incident number 56 of April 1.” Three men, aged 35, 18 and 33, arrested in connection to the incident have since been bailed as enquiries continue.

Cars checked in police crackdown CRIMINALS using Barnsley’s roads to transport drugs, driving without proper licensing or using ‘red diesel’ – fuel not intended for use in road vehicles – were targeted in a wide-ranging police operation. Operation Voyager, a collaboration between police, the council, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), took place in Goldthorpe after successful operations elsewhere in the borough. The teams set up on the for-

mer school site across from Goldthorpe Police Station. More than 70 vehicles were checked, with ten traffic offence reports being issued, two fines of £533 and £542 issued for using red diesel, and 14 prohibition notices handed to drivers by the DVLA. Three vehicles were seized for other road-related offences, and three drivers were given summons to attend court. Acting sergeant Richard Darby said: “It’s a routine traffic operation, with the recent events in

A PHARMACIST has been fined almost £33,000 for failing to clearly state allergen ingredients. Zulfkar Ahmad, 65, was sole director of Ultralife Nutrition Limited, based on Wembley Works Hemmingfield Road, Wombwell. Essential allergen information, including nut ingredients, was not correctly displayed on the food supplements. Ultralife Nutrition Limited and Ahmad had failed to carry out reasonable checks to make sure the labels were compliant with UK labelling law and clearly identify to their customers what allergens were contained in them. Further charges were brought by Barnsley Council, when it was discovered that some of the product lines sold by Ultralife Nutrition from Wembley Works misleadingly showed the names of dissolved companies and addresses in Buckinghamshire and Huddersfield. Had problems with the product arisen, this would have seriously delayed traceability and prevented customer correspondence and complaints being received by the company. The misleading products discovered were marketed under the brand name Ultralife. The company had ceased trading since Trading Standards officers from Barnsley Council’s Regulatory Services had visited in March 2018 and national recall of the products was made. Ahmad pleaded guilty to five charges laid against him and Ultralife Nutrition Limited under the neglect of a director provisions of the Food Safety Act 1990 at Sheffield Crown Court. He was ordered to pay fines and costs of £32,770.

Church’s event THERE will be an open meeting in Wombwell Church where there will be a talk about forgiveness. Widow Maureen Greaves, whose husband Alan Greaves was killed on Christmas Eve in Sheffield on his way to church in 2012, will be hosting the talk.

IT boost at council MORE than £2m is to be invested in IT equipment by Barnsley Council in a move intended to equip the authority to work as efficiently as possible. The council is spending £2.2m on the upgrade, following a decision to approve the investment by councillors on the ruling cabinet. Coun Jenny Platts told colleagues the changes would improve ‘levels of agility’ and were ‘an enabler for many other transformation projects’. The changes will immediately bring opportunities to save money by rationalising the software the authority uses and will also mean their equipment is ready to be integrated with emerging new technologies in the future.

The service offers a free NHS health check and the opportunity to find out your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Professor Jones said: “High blood sugar levels from diabetes can seriously damage parts of your body including your heart, brain, kidneys, feet and eyes. There are all sorts of complications but you can prevent

these by keeping blood sugar, blood pressure and blood facts under control. “For those who have already been diagnosed, this means going for your diabetes health checks and knowing how to look after yourself between appointments.” For more information please visit

Calories can be burned in the garden... GREEN-FINGERED residents are being encouraged to make the most of their time spent outside this spring, as experts have revealed which gardening tasks can burn the most calories. Online garden retailer,, has compiled a guide to the best jobs to complete in order to benefit both homeowners’ health and their gardens. Gardeners could burn up to 93 calories for just 15 minutes of activity by undertaking simple lawn maintenance tasks. Raking leaves is also a great way to tone your arms, and will burn around 60 calories per 15 minutes. A spokesperson said: “Gardening is a brilliant form of exercise for those wanting a low intensity workout. Alongside being incredibly beneficial for both mental and physical health, a sense of accomplishment and pride is awarded to homeowners. “Tasks don’t necessarily need to be difficult – even simply planting shrubs and harvesting produce cando wonders for overall health.� The team’s identified six calorie-busting activities: Raking leaves: This is a great activity for those wanting to tone arms. Swap hands every ten minutes in order to get an even workout on both arms. This also keeps the garden tidy and is a super-fast way to refresh the area without any hard work. Put the leaves in the compost pile and let them decompose, resulting in free and healthy mulch for the garden to improve futility of the soil. Digging and composting: This

builds muscle while also being beneficial for the garden. Regular composting and digging up weeds will keep the lawn healthy and tidy. Double digging is intensive but highly rewarding as it increases soil drainage, raises the planting bed and improves aeration. Lawn maintenance: Experts recommend mowing the lawn every other week, but that depends on the frequency of the growth and the time of the year. Repetitive movement leads naturally to a calmer state of mind and focuses attention, this promotes mental wellbeing. Planting: Early spring is the perfect time to plant new shrubs and flowers in order to be ready to bloom in summer. Shrubs improve air quality by filtering dust and pollutants. Dealing with weeds is also a full body work out, as grabbing and pulling weeds can improve grip and tone arms, whilst squatting for a long period of time defines leg muscles. Harvesting produce: The muscles in the back and arms will be under strain when bending over to pick up pesticide free vegetables and carry a large load. Try and incorporate squatting when bending down for maximum results giving more form to the legs. Trimming hedges: Using a manual cutter to trim bushes stimulates muscles in the shoulders, while squatting down to collect the waste works out the leg muscles. Cutting off dead branches prevents any further spread of decay to other plants so should be done on a regular basis. Hedges help frame the garden so are an important aspect of the landscape.

Be wary of these flowers if you have hay fever... CHRYSANTHEMUMS, sunflowers and oak trees have been named as some of the worst plants for allergies which hay fever sufferers should avoid this spring. A team of outdoors experts from revealed six plants that produce huge numbers of airborne pollen grains which play havoc with allergies over the warmer months. Hay fever is a common allergy caused by pollen or dust in which the mucous membranes of the eyes and nose become inflamed, which causes runny noses and watery eyes. It’s usually worse between late March and September, particularly when it’s warm, humid, or windy and the pollen count is at its highest. This particular allergy can affect up to one in five people at some point in their life, but there are ways to keep the symptoms at bay. Keeping windows and doors shut as much as possible and wearing wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen from getting into your eyes is a good idea, but steering

clear of certain flowers, shrubs and trees should help too. Ragweed Widely considered to be one of the most allergenic plants, ragweed releases huge numbers of pollen grains into the air and to make matters worse, it’s also incredibly common. Dahlia Dahlia flowers are showy enough to attract many insect pollinators, but these flowers have

seed which causes allergies. Keeping Bermuda grass very closely mown will help. Oak trees It’s not just plants with showy flowers that cause allergies to flare up. Plants that rely on airborne pollination, like oak trees, have small

grains of pollen that will aggravate allergies too. Sunflowers Because sunflowers are not fragrant, they’re often overlooked as allergy plants, but the sheer size of a sunflower’s head indicates the copious amounts of pollen.

$ * %$ " & * #%$* It’s your role to keep pets happy and healthy YOUR pet is more than just an animal living at your home, it’s a member of the family and ensuring they are healthy and happy is an owner’s main responsibility. National Pet month promotes responsible pet ownership and raises awareness of having a pet as a companion. Research carried out by Vets4Pets looked into just how important pets are to our lives, from providing companionship and unconditional love, to offering physical and mental health support. More than half of people admit their pet increases their happiness and helps relieve stress or anxiety, while 43 per cent admit a cat, dog or rabbit increases physical activity and 17 per cent say having a pet improves self-confidence. But some pets provide all this and more, with around 7,000 disabled people in the UK relying on an assistance dog to help them with everyday tasks. There are also a further 4,500 dogs who visit hospitals, residential nursing homes, day care centres, hospices and special needs schools, as part of the charity, Pets as Therapy. Dr Huw Stacey, vet and director of clinical services at Vets4Pets, said: “We treat hundreds of thousands of pets every year, and so often hear remarkable and heart-warming stories of pets doing something extraordinary. “For most owners their pets are an important member of the family and a source of companionship but, for some, their pet is a lifeline and a one-of-a-kind hero as well. “Dogs are great at getting people out and about and improving self-confidence. They are also very intelligent, which mean many make ideal assistance and therapy pets. “We’ve heard about pets helping those with illnesses or disabilities from our practices, as well as from charities like Medical Detection Dogs, who train pets to provide vital support to those in need.� National Pet month promotes responsible pet ownership and raises awareness of having a pet as a companion.

The garden may not be the safe haven it seems for your dog... ALLOWING your dog to play in the garden when the weather is warm may seem like a harmless idea, but owners are being encouraged to ensure their dog is safe from potentially hazardous items. These include: 1. Fruit: The stones and pits in apricots, cherries, plums and peaches contain deadly cyanide. These fruits could therefore be very dangerous if they’re crushed before they’re consumed and larger stones could be a choking hazard. 2. Slugs and snails: Dogs can catch a dangerous lungworm infection if they accidentally eat a slug or snail that carries the larvae of the parasite. 3. Plants: Tomatoes, potatoes, azaleas and lilies are just some of the common vegetables and flowers that can be deadly to dogs, especially if they are unripe. 4. Compost: Garden compost heaps will usually be packed full of mouldy food and waste, which can produce

dangerous mycotoxins which are extremely dangerous to dogs. 5. Fertilisers, insecticides and pesticides: Many typical insecticides and pesticides contain chemicals such as metaldehyde and disulfoton which are a significant threat to dogs. 6. Mushrooms: Many mushrooms are perfectly edible but others can be highly toxic to both dogs and their human owners. 7. Weeds: Some weeds are barbed and meant to burrow into the ground to germinate but this also means they could penetrate a dog’s body too and cause internal damage. 8. Weed killer: Swallowing or even licking many common domestic weed killers could be really risky for dogs and cause breathing or heart problems if enough is consumed because many weed killers contain glyphosate. 9. Unsecured tools and equipment: All sharp, mechanical and potentially dangerous garden tools or equipment should be securely stored in a shed.

A great mix of businesses at Gateway Plaza THERE is an eclectic mix of places at Gateway Plaza where you can wine and dine in modern chic settings and there are a few special events coming up in the next few weeks. The Pavilion, which opened in June

last year, offers cocktails, gins and themed food nights. The Tipsy Cow Micro Bar is located at the entrance to the Gateway Plaza complex and offers a range of cask ales, craft beers and a gin. It has several events happening over the next few months including the Gateway Easter Festival on April 21 which will be raising money for Barnsley Hospice. There will be live music from 3pm to 7pm, an Easter egg hunt, give-aways, street food and real ales, the perfect way to spend Easter Sunday. On Friday May 3, join the Pavilion for a Tour de Yorkshire breakfast from 8am. On May 5 there is the Pavilion Gin Festival, with more than 70 gins to choose from paired with different tonics and garnishes, on hand gin guides and demonstrations from noon. There will also be live music 3pm to 7pm and balon gin glass goody bags will also be available. On May 26 is the Bank Holiday Festival, from noon with live music from 3pm to 7pm. You can also book now for Father’s Day lunch on Sunday June 16 which is a two course meal for £13.95 and dad even receives a complimentary beer.

A new look after a decade of success GATEWAY Plaza has been a dominant feature on the Barnsley skyline for over a decade – but it’s changed much in the last year or so. The project, which was launched in 2003, cost £70 million making it the largest private sector development in the history of the town. It took six years to complete, with the first elements opening in 2009. The Gateway Plaza development stands on the site of the former Barnsley Canister Company at Townend, and was home to a munitions factory in 1915 during the First World War. After the war, Barnsley Canister Company was born and the women who toiled in the fac-

tory to support the war effort remained, with nine out of ten of the workforce being female. The factory, known affectionately as the ‘Tin Oyle’, meant they could work shifts around bringing up children in post-war Barnsley, with money being tight and the whole family having to chip in. Since the site’s redevelopment, restaurants, bars, businesses and a hotel have all made the Gateway Plaza its home, and the area is quickly becoming an ever-more desirable place to live, work and socialise. It has been considered a catalyst for the revival of Shambles Street. Overlooking the Barnsley skyline, the views are breathtaking

and you can appreciate the scenic views the town has to offer. The Premier Inn comprises 110 beds, a 548-space car park and a convenience store. In addition to this, Gateway Plaza has two amazing family-friendly restaurants, the Pavilion and The Glass House, both offering great food at reasonable prices. If you fancy a tipple or two, why not head to the Tipsy Cow, a fantastic micro-bar offering a selection of gins and ales which is bound to quench your thirst. The Shambles Street unit has available office space which in addition to fine views, is ideally located close to the Barnsley Interchange and the motorway.

Beth set for big performance... A PERFORMING arts student has been chosen as one of two performers nationwide to sing at a top conference. Barnsley College student Beth Swain was invited to sing at the Association of Colleges’ Annual Conference in Birmingham. The conference is hosted and attended by top TV presenters, industry experts and representatives from colleges across the country and is the biggest national event in further education. Beth was chosen after the conference sent out a nation-wide call searching for student performers. Aged three, Beth first started attending performing arts classes, and later began her level three performing arts studies in 2017. She plans to continue studying to reach her future goal of breaking into the musical theatre industry. Beth is well on her way to reaching her goal after a successful application to Bird College in London, and she is now preparing to progress on to one of the leading performing arts schools in the country once she completes her current studies. “We are tremendously proud of Beth for her hard work and commitment to musical theatre and being chosen to perform at the AoC conference,” said performing arts course leader at Barnsley College, Donna Turner. “We are sure that she is destined for big things and see the bright lights of the West End in her future. “This April, Beth will be performing in her last show at Barnsley College, Seussical the Musical, playing the central role of Jojo who gets into a wide range of adventures with the Cat in the Hat.”

Should parents be put in detention for taking holidays? A NUMBER of parents have been fined for taking their children out of school for unauthorised holidays during term time. They were convicted at Barnsley Magistrates Court for failing to ensure their children regularly attended school. We asked We Are Barnsley followers for their opinion... Seamus O’Callaghan: “Three things here. 1: The government should cap holiday companies from inflating their fees during school holidays. It’s far too easy to fine the parent, but by doing so, all they are doing is sending the dangerous message to the greedy holiday companies that they can continue to charge whatever they want without fear or reproach as any fines are going to be served to the consumer and not them. I have no issue with moderate increases to meet supply and demand, but when they double and in many cases even treble the prices it becomes a straight up case of exploitation. If price increases were capped, the issue of children being taken out of school for holidays during term time would be almost eliminated very quickly. It isn’t rocket science. 2: If local authorities are going to fine parents for taking children out of school during term time, because our children’s education is obviously too important to lose days, then they should also be employing that same rationale to fine schools for closing during term time due to teacher training days. 3: The next time your school closes for a teacher training day during term time and you lose a day’s pay or you incur childcare costs, feel free to make a claim back against the authority, and base your claim on the same

grounds that it uses to fine offending parents. Lisa Burton: “I will happily pay the £60 fine than the extra £1,000 on the holiday thanks.” Sue Burton: “I take my kids away where I want, when I want end of.” Naomi Fascé: “I am not a parent that likes to take my children out of school but I just priced up a holiday for this summer. I could do the ‘right thing’ and pay full price or I could use the last week of the summer holidays and the first week back, saving me approximately £2,000. A fine worth roughly £120.00 for two children, opposed to £2,000? You do the math. Both me and my husband work extremely hard for what we have and deserve a family holiday, but we haven’t got an endless bank account.” Natalie Ferguson: “I haven’t got children but why don’t they realise all parents and children need a rest from school and work life. And not everyone can afford to take children away during the holidays. A work and school life balance is needed. It’s another way to make money.” Luke Wicks: “A £60 fine v thousands off a holiday? LOL I know what I would sooner pay.” Sarah Watts: “Ridiculous. The families who can’t afford school holiday prices means their children can’t go on holiday? Even children need a holiday not just adults.” Alistair Greenfield: “Another way of making money.” Claire Jade Louise: “They need to impose more sanctions on children’s parents who don’t attend school rather than those that work and try to enjoy some family time.”

A week in WAB history... Young apprentice in town as Flitcroft’s Reds begin their great escape... WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we take a look at what hit the headlines in April 2013... April 2 ’Brilliant’ Reds Climb Out Of Relegation Zone BARNSLEY climbed out of the relegation zone once again with a win over play-off hopefuls Leicester. The Reds had started Easter Monday in the bottom three after their defeat to rivals and fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday, but they fought fiercely for three hard-earned points at Oakwell – their third straight home win. “It could have been four, five, six,” said Barnsley manager David Flitcroft. “The passing, the intricacy, wow. We could have been talking about a huge scoreline because that’s how much we dominated Leicester today. We were brilliant.” The Reds dominated possession, and were worthy winners. Michael Keane’s own goal in the fouth minute gave Barnsley the perfect start, and a Chris O’Grady goal in the 40th ensured three valuable points. The remaining seven games will be enthralling, as the Championship table shows that anyone could be pulled into the relegation battle. Eighth-placed Derby County, only two places away from the play-offs, are only seven points clear of the relegation zone. Next up for the Reds is a trip to Wales, where they’re set to face

table-topping Cardiff. April 2 Young Apprentice Winner Talks To Town’s Students THE winner of BBC’s Young Apprentice 2012 gave motivational talks to Barnsley students to mark the start of National Apprenticeship Week. The eighteen-year-old Ashleigh Porter-Exley (above), from Wath, beat off stiff competition from 11 other candidates to win the title and an investment of £25,000 from Lord Alan Sugar towards a future business project. To inspire other local teenagers to follow in her footsteps, Ashleigh delivered motivational talks to students at Horizon Community College, Barnsley

Academy, Shafton ALC and Dearne ALC as well as hosting a talk at the Digital Media Centre. “I really enjoy travelling to different schools and colleges to talk to students about the benefits of apprenticeships whilst sharing my story with them,” said Ashley. “It’s not where you come from or how you speak, it’s about where you’re going and what you will achieve.” April 24 Town Hall To Get Sculpture THE new community square and gardens will feature a striking sculpture worth £1.5million thanks to a loan from Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The ongoing development at the Lancaster Gate side of Barnsley Town Hall will feature the sculpture by Nigel Hall, and is planned to be positioned at the bottom corner of the landscaped area towards the end of May. Council leader Steve Houghton, said: “It’s a highly impressive work of art and one that I am sure will cause much interest and debate.” Standing 10 metres high, Hall’s sculpture, named Crossing (Vertical), was created in 2006 and was sited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in March 2008. Coun Roy Miller, said: “We’re very grateful to Yorkshire Sculpture Park for the loan of a stunning contemporary artwork that complements the excellent design of the square and creates an international quality public space for the residents and visitors to Barnsley.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, April 9, 2019 –

This was the WAB week...



is off Take this opportunity to make sure our Niah-Mae to Playmania talented and caring kids are recognised this week...

I HOPE you have had a wonderful week. Considering the clocks have gone forward and it’s supposed to be Spring, I’m surprised at how cold the weather is. I’m still wearing my big coat! This week’s debate on parents being fined for taking children out of school for a holiday had a lot of you talking. Of course we all understand the importance of children attending school as much as possible but I don’t think parents should be penalised for taking their children out of school to spend time with them and go on holiday.

It’s sad that holiday companies take advantage of knowing when children will be off school and charge extortionate amounts when you know full well if you go at another time of the year you can potentially save thousands. There definitely needs to be some sort of cap or restriction to how much airlines, hotel or holiday operators charge to take your children away especially when they’re off school. It’s extortion. At the Barnsley Chronicle, we are well underway with the Young Champions Awards nominations and we are still really keen to

hear from people who have a young person they would like to nominate for their achievements. We’ve heard about young fundraisers, young musicians and young carers. We are still keen to hear from so many more groups, entrepreneurs and sporting teams who have gone above and beyond in the community. Please drop me an email if you know anyone you would like to recommend. We don’t show our young people enough praise, so it would be lovely to hear their stories and recognise their achievements. ‘Ave a good week! Altine

EACH week we give away a pass to Playmania to one of Tarn’s cutest kids. This week’s winner is twoyear-old Niah-Mae. Isn’t she beautiful? Enjoy your time at Playmania!

Pancake and Waffle are served up this week WE LOVE receiving photos of your adorable pets and you love showing them off! Here’s a round-up of this week’s papped pets... OJ

ONE BACK: Cauley Woodrow nets from the spot but Barnsley were beaten. Pictures: Keith Turner.

Burton blow to Reds’ promotion challenge BARNSLEY lost for the first time in 20 league matches across almost four months as they went down 3-1 at mid-table Burton Albion on Saturday. The hosts took the lead in the fifth minute then doubled it with nine to play and, although Cauley Woodrow replied from the penalty spot, Albion scored another to secure the win. The Reds are still in the second automatic promotion place in League One, but only on goal difference ahead of Sunderland who have two games in hand and scored an 89th-minute winner at Rochdale. Fourth-placed Portsmouth also won and are just two points behind Barnsley with a game in hand. Head coach Daniel Stendel said: “It hurts a lot at the moment. The players invested so much and wanted to win so much. Burton didn’t play very well but better than us and scored at the right times and they deserved to win. Burton is a good team but not normally good enough to beat us. “I am disappointed with the result and performance. We fought for 95 minutes but it was not enough to win. The goals were too easy for Burton. When you defend like we did, you win no game.” The teams were led out onto the pitch by Stephen Croft, the Barnsley volunteer who suffered a cardiac arrest before the reverse fixture was due to take place at Oakwell in September. Daniel Pinillos replaced Ben Williams at left-back in the only change from the side that drew 2-2 at home to Coventry City last week. The hosts took the lead in the fifth minute when Marcus Harness ran down the left wing and the ball went to Scott Fraser whose shot from the edge of the box was saved by Adam Davies but went straight to Jamie Allen who tapped into the empty net from five yards. Barnsley had long-range shots from Pinillos and Cameron

McGeehan easily saved but the hosts had much the better of the first 15 minutes. Liam Boyce was booked for diving when he thought he won a penalty, seconds after a possible handball by Alex Mowatt in the area, while Allen’s dipping volley from 25 yards went just inches over. The Reds got back into the game and were on top for the rest of the half without being at their best. Jacob Brown’s glancing header from a Dimitri Cavare cross was straight at goalkeeper Bradley Collins then the same player went clean through on goal but miscontrolled and was tackled. Mamadou Thiam blazed well over from just outside the box after an excellent move involving Cauley Woodrow and McGeehan. Barnsley also thought they should have had a penalty after a Burton defender appeared to block a cross with his arm. The hosts had a huge chance to double their lead three minutes into the second half when Lucas Akins’ overhead kick put Boyce clean through but he tried to dink the ball over Davies but his weak effort was easily caught by the goalkeeper. Burton then missed another massive chance as Harness controlled an Akins cross from the right wing and nutmegged Liam Lindsay but, eight yards out with only Davies to beat, he shot wide of the bottom left corner. That seemed to spark Barnsley into life. Hedges had the visitors’ first shot on target of the second half but his swerving 20-yard effort was beaten away by the goalkeeper then substitute Callum Styles shot wide from a similar distance and Cavare had a shot blocked by a defender deep inside the box. Woodrow headed a Hedges corner just over the crossbar on 73 minutes. It was 2-0 when Boyce beat the offside trap and went clean through on goal then smashed past Davies from the edge of the

box. Barnsley replied five minutes later when they were given a penalty for a dispute foul on Mike Bahre by Jake Buxton and Woodrow fired in his 16th goal of the season. Burton made it 3-1 in the 90th minute when the ball was worked by Akins to Boyce on the left of the box and he squared to the unmarked Harness who fired past Davies from close range. Barnsley (4-4-2): Davies; Cavare, Pinnock, Lindsay, Pinillos (Adeboyejo 84mins); Brown (Styles 59), Mowatt, McGeehan, Hedges; Thiam (Bahre 59), Woodrow. Subs: Walton, Jackson, J Williams, B Williams. Yellow cards: Bahre, Woodrow. Goals: Woodrow 85 (pen). Burton (4-4-2): Collins; Brayford, Buxton, McFadzean, Daniel; Fraser (Fox 78mins), Allen (Wallace 90+1), Quinn, Harness; Akins, Boyce (Miller 90+4). Subs: Bywater, Bradley, Hutchinson, Clarke. Yellow cards: Boyce. Goals: Allen 5, Boyce 81, Harness 89.

Our standard terms and conditions of Advertising and Payment are set out below and are applicable to all advertising booked in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications and internet sites or with regard to any other business transacted. General In these terms and conditions (i) the ‘Company’ means The Barnsley Chronicle Limited of 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS; and (ii) the ‘Advertiser’ means any person or company placing with the Company an order for the publication of an advertisement in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications or internet sites, or any person or company placing with the Company an order for the distribution or insertion of leaflets or other publications or materials with any of the Company’s newspapers or other publications. Acceptance of Conditions In placing an order for the publication of an advertisement, the Advertiser accepts these terms and conditions. No term or condition that conflicts with them is binding on the Company or the Advertiser unless it is in writing and signed by or on behalf of both parties by an authorised signatory. These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. If any provision in these terms and conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the remainder of them shall continue to apply. The Company reserves the right at any time to change in whole or in part these terms and conditions. CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE OF ADVERTISEMENTS 1 Advertiser’s Warranty and Indemnity (i) The Advertiser warrants: (a) that the advertisement is legal, decent, honest and truthful and that it complies with the British Codes of Advertising and Sales Promotion, with any relevant codes of practice and with all requirements of current legislation; (b) that nothing in the advertisement is defamatory or constitutes a malicious falsehood; (c) that the publication of the advertisement will not infringe copyright or any other rights vested in a third party; and (d) that the Advertiser has secured all necessary authorities and consents in respect of the use in the advertisement of any pictorial representations or other representations of (or purporting to be of) living persons and of references to any words attributed to living persons. (ii) The Advertiser will indemnify the Company in respect of all costs, damages or other charges arising as a result of the publication of their advertisement or incurred in connection with any actions or claims brought against the Company arising from a breach by the Advertiser of the warranties in this paragraph 1 or otherwise from the publication of the advertisement. 2 Refusing or Amending Advertisements (i) The Company reserves the right to refuse to publish any advertisement whether or not the advertisement has been accepted or previously published. (ii) The Company may require any alteration it considers necessary or desirable in an advertisement as a prior condition of its publication, whether or not such advertisement has been accepted or previously published. (iii) The Company will permit only standard abbreviations and no hyperlinks or metatags may be included in any advertisements save with the prior consent of the Company. 3 Placement of Adverts (i) Whilst the Company will endeavour to comply with reasonable requests from Advertisers, the Company does not guarantee the publication of any advertisement or its publication on any particular date or in any particular position. (ii) The Company has at its absolute discretion the right to decide the classification, if relevant, for any advertisement. 4 Cancellation (i) The Company may cancel the Advertiser’s order at any time and shall give notice of the cancellation before the next due date of publication of the advertisement if practicable. (ii) In no event can orders be cancelled once the Company has commenced to carry out the order in accordance with the first publication date requested by the Advertiser. In other cases notice of cancellation must be received by the Company prior to the relevant current deadline. (iii) All cancellations must be notified in writing by post or fax. E-mail notice of cancellation is not acceptable. 5 Copyright (i) Copyright of all artwork, copy or other material created, reworked or contributed to by the Company shall vest in the Company. (ii) The Advertiser authorises the Company to record, reproduce, publish, distribute and broadcast (or to permit the same) all advertisements (including but not limited to text, artwork and photographs) and to include and make them available in any information service, electronic or otherwise. 6 Advertiser’s Property All artwork, photographs, leaflets, film or other property delivered by the Advertiser to the Company is held by the Company at the Advertiser’s risk and the Advertiser should insure all such property against loss or damage from whatsoever cause. The Company reserves the right to destroy without notice all such material after the date of its last use in connection with the publication of an advertisement, unless the Advertiser has given written instructions to the contrary. 7 Box Numbers (i) The Company will endeavour to forward all replies to a box number, to the Advertiser, as soon as possible after receipt, but the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage alleged to have arisen through delay in forwarding or omitting to forward such replies, howsoever caused. Box addresses must not be used for sending goods or materials of any value. The Advertiser authorises the Company to examine material passing through boxes and hereby authorises the Company to return to its originator or destroy any communication, which, in the opinion of the Company, should not be delivered to the Advertiser. (ii) Advertisements from dealers are not accepted under a box number, nor may a box number be used for the distribution of trade canvassing material. 8 Disclosing Information (i) All advertisements must be accompanied by the Advertiser’s full name and address and the Company may require evidence of authenticity of any advertisement. All trade advertisements must contain a trading name. (ii) The Company reserves the right to refuse an advertisement containing only a mobile telephone number unless the Advertiser discloses to them a BT land line number (or similar). (iii) The Company reserves the right to disclose the name and address of Advertisers if required by law or any regulatory or government authority or to other third parties where the Company, in its sole discretion, deems it reasonable. 9 Limitation of Company’s Liability (i) The Advertiser shall check the advertisement and notify the Company immediately in writing of any errors. The Company assumes no responsibility and shall not be liable for the repetition of errors in a series of advertisements unless it has received reasonable

written notice from the Advertiser. (ii) In the event of any error, misprint or omission in the printing of an advertisement or part of an advertisement (however caused) the Company will either re-insert the advertisement or relevant part thereof, or make a reasonable refund or adjustment to the cost. No re-insertion, refund or adjustment will be made where the error, misprint or omission does not materially detract from the advertisement. (iii) In no circumstances shall the Company’s total liability (including consequential liability) in respect of any error, misprint or omission exceed either the amount of a full refund of any price paid to the Company for the advertisement in connection with which liability arose, or the cost of a further or corrective advertisement of a type and standard reasonably comparable to that in connection with which liability arose. (iv) Save as set out in this paragraph 9, the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly as a result of the publication of any advertisement or any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly by any total or partial failure (however caused) of the publication of any advertisement in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications or internet sites in which the advertisement is scheduled to appear. 10 Assignment (i) The Company shall be entitled to assign its contract with the Advertiser or any of its rights or benefits thereunder. (ii) The Advertiser may not assign, transfer, sub contract, charge or in any other way deal with any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the Company’s prior written consent. 11 Data Protection Act (i) The Company will hold information it obtains in its dealings with customers to administer the Advertiser’s account, for statistical purposes, for debt collection and for fraud and crime prevention. If the Advertiser does not wish its information to be used for marketing purposes, it should inform the Company in writing. (ii) Telephone calls to the Company may be monitored or recorded for staff training purposes. 12 Advertising Agencies (i) An advertising agency, whether recognised or not, submitting an advertisement shall conform to the conditions laid down by the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising regarding observance of the provisions of the British Code of Advertising Practice and to the Standard Conditions for transactions of business between newspapers and advertising agencies as agreed between the Newspaper Society and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising. (ii) The terms of the Recognition Agreement between the Newspaper Society or between the Newspaper Society and the Newspaper Proprietors Association and recognised advertising agencies are deemed to be incorporated in these conditions of acceptance for the publication and transmission of all advertisements accepted from a recognised agency. Without prejudice to the foregoing, these conditions of acceptance specifically extend to any personal guarantee given by the directors of or any other person on behalf of a recognised agency in respect of any unsatisfied liabilities of the agency in the event of the agency’s liquidation or insolvency. Such guarantee is part of these conditions of acceptance. 13 Leaflets For the purpose of these terms and conditions, any leaflet or other publication or material distributed with any of the Company’s newspapers or magazines is deemed to be an ‘advertisement’, and references to the publication of such advertisements is deemed to be the distribution or insertion of such leaflet or other publication or material. PAYMENT TERMS FOR ADVERTISERS Orders for the insertion of advertisements are accepted subject to the following payment terms: 1 Rates (i) The Company reserves the right at any time to change the scale of advertising rates and to apply such rates to advertisements (series or otherwise) accepted and not wholly executed at the time of any such change. (ii) It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to bring to the Company’s attention at the time of booking any discount, allowance or exemption from Value Added Tax to which entitlement is claimed. (iii) All gross advertising rates (except classified lineage and semi display) are subject to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance levy from time to time (currently 0.1%) payable by the Advertiser to help finance the self-regulatory system. (iv) All rates and prices quoted by the Company are exclusive of Value Added Tax. 2 Advertising Agencies (i) Commission will only be granted to agencies formally recognised by the Newspaper Society or the Company at the time of placing the order. The rate of commission payable will be determined by the Company and may be carried or withdrawn at the Company’s discretion at any time, subject to giving the advertising agency seven days written notice thereof. (ii) All advertising agencies claiming commission must quote order numbers for every booking made. 3 Time of Payment (i) Unless credit terms have been agreed, pre-payment for any advertisement must be made in full no later than the relevant deadline. (ii) In the event that credit terms are approved, payment shall be made for each advertisement no later than thirty days from the date of the invoice for such advertisement. Should the Advertiser be in breach of these terms, or of any contract with the Company, then the full amount in respect of all advertising published and all other amounts accruing from the Advertiser shall become due and payable. (iii) The Company reserves the right to withdraw credit facilities from any Advertiser at the Company’s discretion. (iv) Payments by post must be by cheque or postal order made payable to the Company and crossed. All payments must be accompanied by the relevant invoice, statement or remittance advice issued by the Company. (v) Any query in respect of an invoice must be brought to the attention of the Company within seven days of its issue. The existence of a query on any individual item on an account shall not affect the due date of payment of any balance of such account. 4 Late Payments (i) The Company shall be entitled to charge interest on all sums due at a rate of 5% above the base rate for the time being of Barclays Bank plc until payment is received, after as well as before any judgment is obtained, together with compensation for late payment under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and regulations made thereunder. (ii) The Company shall be entitled to add to any sums due any reasonable costs and expenses (including administrative costs) incurred by the Company in obtaining payment thereof on an indemnity basis. (iii) The Company shall be entitled to charge the Advertiser £15.00 in respect of any cheque tendered which is not met upon presentation (and to vary this charge at any time without notice). (iv) The Company reserves the right to exercise a lien over any documents or other property of the Advertiser in its possession if the Company’s charges are not paid in accordance with these terms and the Company’s rate card from time to time.
