2030 vision on zero carbon BARNSLEY Council is set to declare a ‘climate emergency’ with plans to create a zero-carbon borough earlier than its original target. The council says its strategy is to reduce pollution levels and bosses are aiming to a achieve a zero carbon borough by 2040 – ten years sooner than the government is aiming for nationally – as air pollution has been cited as the fourth biggest threat to public health after cancer, heart disease and obesity. However, the declaration of a climate emergency is seen as a statement of intent, a council report said, and the 2040 target could be hit sooner as a result. A report, which will be discussed by ruling cabinet members at Barnsley Town Hall tomorrow (Wednesday), said: “A climate emergency declaration issued by a council can only be a powerful catalyst for action if paired with a clear deliverable action plan. “Several early adopters with shorter end dates have had to extend their timeframes because they found the dates were unachievable and unaffordable. “The council may be challenged that 2040 is not ambitious enough. Most other local authorities who have declared climate emergencies have carbon neutrality targets of 2030 or

2035. Environmental activists have openly challenged targets of even 2035. “While a 2030 target may be unobtainable it is however a statement of intent and many local authorities have declared for 2030 on that basis.” In 2017, Public Health England estimated that 3.8 per cent of all deaths in Barnsley in those aged 30 and above were attributable to fine particulate air pollution. Councillors have been given details of the work already in progress towards cutting the council’s contribution towards pollution, including the introduction of electric vehicles to the local authority’s fleet and more efficient boilers in its rented homes. Traffic congestion at flare-up points including Dodworth Road and around Barnsley Hospital have been brought up recently, and councillors representing the area say they have had an offer from the Sheffield City Region for its active travel commissioner, Dame Sarah Storey, to make an input into work on promoting active travel as an alternative to using cars. According to the Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS), councillors are particularly concerned about the impact of pollution on children attending primary schools in the area.

INBRIEF... Plan to increase apprenticeships A SIX-FIGURE contract which is set to be approved by councillors is expected to boost apprenticeships in four Barnsley wards. The North East Area Council, which covers Cudworth, Monk Bretton, North East and Royston, has outlined its plan to increase youngsters’ employability. The scheme – costing up to £215,000 – will begin in April if it gains approval, according to a report which will be discussed on Thursday.

Bin set alight THEATRE-GOERS will lay their eyes on the Lamproom’s new bar area for the first time tonight (Tuesday). The bar, estimated to have cost upwards of £80,000 and following on from work completed last year, continues the first major renovation at the venue since the Barnsley Theatre Trust, helmed by John Kelly, took it over 20 years ago. “It’s a Grade II listed building but after 20 years the trustees feel now is the time to start

to improve the actual infrastructure as well as what happens on the stage,” said theatre manager Ruth Pearson. “We’ve put a lot of time, effort and money – raised through grants and from the Friends of the Lamproom Theatre – into refurbishing the bar.” The bar will open to the public tonight, when the first show of the new season, ‘Up ‘n’ Under’, hits the stage.

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a car park in Royston where a clothes recycling bin had been set alight. A crew from Cudworth attended The Lane at 10.50pm on Sunday. They spent more than half an hour extinguishing the flames.

Bike blaze A MOTORBIKE was deliberately set alight in Worsbrough Dale in the early hours of last Wednesday morning. Firefighters from Barnsley were called to Underwood Avenue at 12.45am, coming away ten minutes later.

DOZENS of families descended on Cudworth fire station for the last in a series of summer open days held by South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue. Visitors to the station on Tumbling Lane could try on a breathing apparatus set, sit in a fire engine and have a go at squirting water from a hose and soaking a firefighter, while a chip pan fire demonstration illustrated the dangers of pouring water onto hot oil – still a common cause of kitchen fires. Firefighters also showed off their skill at helping casualties in a mock road traffic collision demonstration.

Police going local in bid to speed up key improvements A NEW problem-busting culture has been introduced by South Yorkshire Police in a bid to slice through the bureaucracy which has previously held up improvements which would allow frontline officers to do their job more effectively. Sometimes relatively simple issues can present obstacles to efficient working by officers on the streets. Each of the county’s four policing districts now has a ‘local innovation group’ with a remit to address their own particular problems immediately. That allows officers as far down the rank structure as sergeants to authorise some spending from the local budget, such as buying computer charging cables for police vehicles, rather than going through the red tape of getting a purchase approved and actioned in the conventional way. The force now encourages more involved issues to be solved by district commanders, rather than being subject to formal requests through the force’s higher management. Details of the policy have been explained to South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, at a meeting of his Public Accountability Board, where the force is held to account. Assistant Chief Constable Tim Forber described the situation as ‘hindrance’ blocking, removing the barriers which frustrate officers attempting to work well. He described the bureaucracy of waiting for decisions as like ‘being stuck in treacle, where everything is referred up’. “If we want to offer outstanding services, we have to fix this,” he said.

Officers on frontline duties are to be issued with new laptop computers next spring, a decision made by force commanders as a direct result of complaints about the efficiency of the current equipment, with new telephones also going into service. A new ‘app’ is also being introduced, which will allow officers to report their frustrations in real time as they work, so they can be examined in an attempt to remove problems. “Officers will have an app where they can say something is a real frustration,” said ACC Forber. “We can take take account of this, make sense of things and take action. I think we have a pretty robust approach to making things better.” A national review among frontline police, carried out by the Home Office, confirmed there is a feeling on increasing demands on police against decreasing capacity and that officers on the streets feel an undervalued component in the policing system. It also showed ‘a profound scepticism’ about the ability of the front line to ‘inform change

and improvement’, said a report to Dr Billings. It is that scepticism the South Yorkshire Police approach seeks to address and one current example is setting up an engagement group of officers, to test potential new laptop models before the force makes a decision, to ensure they choose the most appropriate model for the needs of users. The report to Dr Billings described solvable problems as ‘hindrance stressors’ and said: “They act as barriers to employees doing their job effectively and can quickly result in reduced motivation and disillusionment with the organisation. “Examples include role ambiguity, perceived red tape, poor systems, workplace politics and being able to access required tools and resources. “Whereas challenge stressors promote people’s engagement in their role, hindrance stressors reduce it and have a large negative impact on people’s emotional energy.” n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

ONE of the most popular Lamproom productions is returning to the Barnsley theatre after 16 years. The award-winning comedy Up ‘n’ Under follows amateur rugby league team The Wheatsheaf Arms and their quest to beat arch-rivals The Cobblers Arms. The play is by the Lamproom Theatre Company, who originally performed it at the venue in 2003. Audiences at the Lamproom theatre voted the company’s previous production of Up ‘n’ Under as the most popular in the last 20 years, so it is being performed again to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. Louise Armitage, who was an original cast member in 2003, has

returned to direct the production and explained: “It feels absolutely amazing to be back on the pitch with Up ‘n’ Under, like getting back together with an old friend. “When I found out that the Lamproom would be staging the production again, I was desperate to be a part of it. “I was so emotionally attached to the character I played, but realised that, at 43, I was a bit too long in the tooth. “So I asked if I could direct this time.” Performances of Up ‘n’ Under run from tonight until Saturday at the Lamproom theatre. Doors open at 6.45pm and tickets are available from the box office.

A TWO-YEAR project to revitalise an area of disused railway land in Goldthorpe will culminate next week when the site opens to the public. Hundreds of volunteers got their hands dirty over the span of the project, during which a picnic area, wildflower garden, interpretation boards and a new access route have been installed at the site, which had been blighted by fly-tipping. The area on Barnsley Road will now serve as a community hub, and a centre for education and other activities. There are also a number of features such as bedding boxes, a compost heap and an orchard which will ensure the space continues to develop long after the project is officially concluded. Coun Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesman for

adults and communities, said: “The opening of the new Goldthorpe Railway Cuttings will mark a momentous day for everyone involved. “The space is now a wonderful neighbourhood resource for community groups and schoolchildren to use, and it’s all thanks to the hard work of our project partners, volunteers and local schools who have dedicated hours

A FLY-TIPPING hot spot has not been cleared in almost a year, says a parish councillor. Issues relating to the patch of land belonging to Network Rail, which runs alongside Park Spring Road on the border of Little Houghton and Grimethorpe, were raised by Little Houghton parish councillor Kevin Osborne in October. But he says no action has been taken apart from a small warning sign being placed on the entrance to the private patch of land.

Rooms are well used even better. Our income is growing as we have more users on a regular basis. “We are pretty confident.” Ms Jackson said that up to the year ending March 31, income had been £26,000 and outgoings £21,000. Donations had been good and solar panels were helping to keep costs down. While the Huskar rooms have a number of new users, including the NHS, one group is bucking the trend. Ms Jackson said Guides and Brownies are still missing from the Huskar schedule. “We have advertised for new leaders but without success,” she said.

“Network Rail are not only responsible for current railways,” said Kevin. “They own a lot of land across the country which attracts fly-tipping. “There is domestic waste but there’s also construction material, fence panels and other industrial waste. “A fence needs to go up, it’s a simple solution to the problem. “It’s a popular dog-walking area. You could argue it’s not the most photogenic part of South Yorkshire, but it joins RSPB woodland up the road.

“The only thing that’s gone up since the last time the issue was raised is a small white sign, but fly-tippers don’t read.” A Network Rail spokesman said: “We are aware there are fly-tipping problems on Park Spring Road in Barnsley and we are continuing to work closely with Barnsley Council to resolve this issue. “We would urge people to dispose of their waste appropriately and report any fly-tipping they see to the British Transport Police.”

The project received funding from the Dearne Valley Landscape

Partnership (DVLP), Section 106, Barnsley Bond, Tesco, Big Local, Network Rail and the Dearne Area Council to support environmental projects within the area. Each volunteer group and local service or school has been assigned an area of the cuttings to use and maintain. The Goldthorpe Railway Cuttings will officially open on Friday.

However, hire of rooms for parties is slightly down on last year. Huskar rooms chairman Linda Jackson told Silkstone’s parish council this could be down to trends among youngsters. “The number of parties has been hit and miss but this is something which could change,” she said in a report on the Huskar rooms. “Overall, hire is up and continues to grow nicely. “We are in a good place and we can get

AN ACCLAIMED memoir of a chart-topping singer-songwriter will be brought to life in an exciting show at The Lamproom. Iain Matthews’ memoir Through My Eyes was written in collaboration with author Ian Clayton to create the show Words and Music. The show looks at the book, which is structured around a series of Matthews’ songs and illustrated by the stories that inspired them. Clayton will read stories from the book interspersed with live songs from Matthews, presenting an intimate evening which tells the story of an artistic life through the eyes of a singer-songwriter. The show will follow the story of Matthews’ life, from a Scunthorpe childhood obsessed with football and music, to thrusting himself into the heart of Carnaby Street in the swinging-sixties. In 1967, he was recruited as

lead vocalist for folk-rock pioneers Fairport Convention before embarking on a prolific career as a solo artist and in the groups Matthews Southern Comfort and Plainsong, which included a number one hit single with Woodstock. In 1973, when an invitation was extended to record in Los Angeles with ex-Monkee Michael Nesmith, Matthews took it with open arms. The opportunity to work with musicians and songwriters he had admired from afar led him to stay; he lived and worked in the USA for the next 27 years, through highs and lows, with extended stints in Los Angeles, Seattle and Austin. In 2000, in an act of personal and professional renewal, he moved to the Netherlands, where he still lives and works. Words and Music will be performed at The Lamproom Theatre on September 25 at 7.30pm.

Double boost in bid to attract businesses to former colliery site MATCH-FUNDING could result in a combined £1.2m being injected into Royston to boost employment and encourage businesses to move to the village. An update on its Principal Towns project, a council-run scheme which is designed to boost out-of-town locations as a result of Barnsley town centre’s ongoing regeneration, was given by cabinet member Coun Tim Cheetham, who also represents the Royston ward. Royston – which has been allocated £598,500 – and Penistone will be the first areas to benefit from Principal Towns with Cudworth, Hoyland, Wombwell and Goldthorpe to follow. But match-funding is being pursued by bosses behind the project, which could result in the council’s cash being equalled and put towards creating an initial five industrial units on the former Monckton Colliery site, which could rise to 15. Coun Cheetham said: “It’s proposed to build five sustainable, managed industrial and workspace units on Monckton which forms part of Rabbit Ings Country Park. “The site is unused, derelict

land which is adjacent to an already established industrial unit, and does not impact on the work and aspirations of the nature reserve. “The land where it is proposed to build the units is under the ownership of the Land Trust. Initial meetings with them and Groundworks (whose staff run Rabbit Ings) have resulted in an agreement that the land will be released at no cost to be developed. “Groundwork will be crucial in maintaining the workspace site, making sure that the units are being used for their intended purpose and that the site itself is kept in good condition. “The units will provide facilities where entrepreneurs can start or grow their enterprises. “The units are important for business start-ups and established small businesses that need high-quality workspaces, and will increase employability and raise income.” It’s envisaged rental collections could potentially be used to expand the business site, maintain existing buildings and support community groups in Royston. Penistone’s allocation, which was approved alongside Royston

at the cabinet meeting, totals £889,900 and notably includes a £556,000 sum to develop its town hall, £63,000 for the market barn, £100,000 for public realm wi-fi and art and £40,000 for bike storage. “Royston is very different to Penistone as it’s a village that’s been crying out for more business units,” Coun Cheetham added. “This is a really great scheme which could attract businesses. “Through initial discussions with Enterprising Barnsley it has been highlighted that from the 110 enquiries received to date in 2019/20, 18 per cent were for units sized under 1,000sq ft. “There seems to be a clear gap in the market for small industrial units up to 1,500sq ft and Royston has already been highlighted as one of the borough’s most important places for economic growth.” Council leader Sir Steve Houghton added: “It’s important to emphasise that while Barnsley town centre is our biggest asset and it’s in its regeneration phase, we have not neglected other key parts of the borough. “Royston and Penistone’s schemes will be the first of a number.”

MANVERS Lake at Wath-upon-Dearne played host to a gathering of more than 3,000 members of the Malayalee community from across the UK. The 2019 Kerala Pooram Boat Race and Carnival included a spectacular day of ‘Chundan Vallam’ snake boat racing, along with cultural and food stalls, live music and Indian folk dance. The event, formally opened by Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey and Rotherham councillor Alan Atkin, was organised by the Union of United Kingdom Malalyalee Associations (UUKMA), a registered charity which represents more than 50,000 expatriates from the Indian state of Kerala who live in the UK. Eby Sebastian, UUKMA

vice-president, said: “UUKMA was established in 2009 as the umbrella organisation of the more than 100 Kerala Associations spread across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. “We represent the aspirations of the United Kingdom Kerala community. “Our state, Kerala, is famous for a traditional form of boat racing called ‘Vallam Kali’. The races are in traditional long boats called ‘Chundan Vallam’ and attract tourists from across the globe. “We aim to introduce our ‘Vallam Kali’ racing to the United Kingdom. Our first event was held at Draycote Water in 2017 as a celebration of the 70th anniversary of India’s independence. “The following year’s event was in Oxford.”

Will new road bring relief? A CONTROVERSIAL scheme to develop a major tract of Barnsley’s green belt will reduce congestion thanks to a new relief road which is included in the fiercely contested plan, according to a councillor. Coun Sharon Howard, who represents the Darton West ward, told cabinet members that the relief road which is included in the Barnsley West MU1 masterplan will ‘bring a solution’ to Higham Common Road’s congestion. The site is bordered by Pogmoor, Higham, Gawber and Barugh Green and is currently open fields but 1,700 new homes, a new primary school and employment land with a link road connecting it to the M1 could be built on it in the future. “Hopefully the road will divert traffic away from Higham Common Road as it’s really narrow – highways officers will be working on this over and above what they normally would do,” she added. “The relief road will

bring a solution to that area and while the message to residents is that the local plan’s already been agreed, it’s important they have their say on what goes on this site. I encourage everyone to do exactly that through the consultation process. Two more will be set up specifically for Redbrook’s TARA (tenants’ and residents’ association) which is close-by and Keep It Green 2014.” However, former Barnsley Central MP and Pogmoor resident Eric Illsley, a member of campaign group Keep It Green 2014, refuted Coun Howard’s claim. He said: “The housing estate is effectively a new village – how can the prospect of having up to 5,000 residents in that area possibly reduce congestion? “Add the HGV traffic associated with the warehouses which have also been allocated to be built on the site and most people will see that a relief road will not do anything for surrounding villages’

traffic concerns.” A community consultation on the MU1 masterplan will run until October 24, with two drop-in sessions which will be held on Monday (September 23) at Barugh Green Private Members’ Club and St Thomas Community Centre, Gawber, on October 10, both from 3pm until 7pm. Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for regeneration and culture, said: “MU1 is the largest masterplan area proposed in Barnsley from the local plan and it’s important we consider the impact of the potential development through this framework. The consultation will provide nearby residents, businesses and community groups with the opportunity to shape the future of the site. I encourage anyone with an interest in the area to complete the online consultation or attend one of the drop-in events.” Visit barnsleywest. to have your say online.

‘Think before you park’ plea issued PUPILS’ safety is being jeopardised by parents’ insistence on parking as close to Barnsley schools as possible during the morning rush hour, it has been claimed. Children recently returned from their summer break, and warnings have already been issued by police and highways bosses urging parents to park a safe distance away. A matter which has affected many locations across the borough, walk-to-school initiatives, regular newsletters, police patrols and even petitions – issued by concerned residents in Darton and Royston – have so far failed to deter parents from clogging up streets. The South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership (SYSRP) has made a plea to parents and carers to choose a safe place to park away from the school gates. Joanne Wehrle, SYSRP manager, said: “We appreciate that people can be in a rush in a morning and that getting children to school on time can be hard work.

“But it is extremely important that you don’t park in restricted areas including the keep clear zig-zags or double yellow lines. “Parked cars outside schools can be a hazard and stopping on the yellow zig-zag lines puts children at risk. “If walking or catching the bus isn’t an option for you, please park in a legal and safe place and give yourself extra time in a morning. “Because of their size, children can’t see if the road is clear from behind parked cars and drivers can’t see children hidden from sight. “Please make sure that your children know that roads are dangerous and don’t let very young children out on their own.” One school blighted by parking problems has been Barugh Green Primary, on Higham Common Road, which was the scene of several crashes involving HGVs colliding with parents’ cars. Governor Shirley Musgrave said: “It’s been bad for many years now

but we’re at the stage where something really must be done to prevent accidents from occurring. “The HGV driver didn’t even know he’d hit a car during the first incident so it doesn’t bear thinking about if that had been a child, of which there are many on pavements during the morning and afternoon peak times.” Sgt Dave Baines, who heads up a policing team which covers Darton and Royston, added: “Bad parking is an issue outside most schools in Barnsley and it should be an easy thing to solve. “A stronger message will be sent out if a motorist is fined, but I don’t think it’s suitable to simply put more PCSOs on the job. “One yellow line painted down the road would stop it, but there’s budget constraints to deal with and that is a council matter. “People must remember that bad parking doesn’t necessarily mean it’s illegal parking, but I understand how frustrating it is for people and we are doing something about it.”

A BARNSLEY travel agent has bagged herself a central role in the latest series of Supermarket Sweep. The cult classic TV game show formerly hosted by Dale Winton made its long-awaited return to the small screen earlier this month. It’s presented by former X Factor star turned TV celebrity Rylan Clark-Neal, and Barnsley viewers may have heard a familiar twang in the voice of one of the checkout ladies. Jo Ramsden might even be a recognisable face to game show viewers, having appeared on the likes of Deal Or No Deal, Nothing But The Truth with Jerry Springer

and Wordplay. But Jo – who has ‘never worked a till in her life’ – admits it was strange to be part of the cast rather than a contestant on the series, which runs for launched on ITV2 on Monday night. “It’s probably the best experience I’ve had in my life,” said Jo, of Pepper Street, Platts Common. “I was so excited when I got the call to say it was coming back on. “Before the cashiers never spoke but on this one we do a lot of interacting with Rylan and the contestants. “I really got on with Rylan, although he kept taking the Mickey out of my accent.” Jo, 50, got the part after

being contacted by one of Supermarket Sweep’s producers, who she had worked with on other shows. She’s one of five cashiers who were trained up on the tills, which are fully functional and identical to the ones used by Tesco. The shop is even full of real produce, which is later donated to shelters and food banks. “I had my own dressing room and was looked after really well,” added Jo. “But I’m not right happy with the uniform – I’ve never looked as butch in my life.” Catch Jo on Supermarket Sweep at 8pm on ITV2 on week nights up until Friday, October 4.

A week in WAB history...

Caring teenager’s Royal approval WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in September 2012... September 1 Barnsley Lad Voted Most Caring Young Person Of 2012 A BARNSLEY lad has been given a prestigious award after being named the most caring young person in the UK. Ryan James Skidmore, 14, of Bolton-upon-Dearne, went to a glitzy party for the Wellchild’s award ceremony – meeting royalty like Prince Harry and other celebrities. He was nominated by a family friend for the help he offers his sister Lilly Mae, who has a long-term illness. A spokesman for Wellchild

said: “Ryan has a little sister Lilly Mae who has a rare syndrome which has left her with a host of serious health problems. “Ryan helps his parents look after Lilly and even gives his mum time in bed to catch up on sleep, bringing her breakfast in bed. “Ryan always sticks up for his little sister and does his best to support her. His mum has painful hip problems which mean she is sometimes confined to bed. Ryan will help out as much as he can as he loves his sister so much.” Mum Vikky added: “It was so wonderful that Ryan was recognised for all he does that’s above and far beyond what other children his age would do. He is fantastic. “He doesn’t ever moan when he is passed from

pillar to post, it must be so hard on him but he just smiles and helps. “He’ll tell me to rest and brings me cups of tea and this is after getting up seven days a week to do a paper round so he can have a little money as we’ve none. But he ends up buying us all treats with it.” September 11 Pranksters Fake Hoyland Litter Bin Closure RESIDENTS of Hoyland discovered all the town centre litter bins covered over with signs saying they were no longer in use. The bins on the High Street had been covered with bin bags, with posters printed saying they had been put out of use due to budget cuts and that residents must instead use bins in the local library.

A council spokesman said it was not known who was responsible for it. Council leader Steve Houghton said: “Once the council became aware of what was taking place it was brought to an immediate end and we apologise for any inconvenience that was caused. “We understand the point the people concerned were trying to make, but it was not done in an appropriate way.” September 20 Barnsley’s Flagship Redevelopment Moves Forward A MAJOR restaurant chain

has confirmed it will be moving to Barnsley when the £125 million town centre revamp is completed. The scheme, due to be completed in 2015, will include a Debenhams, a seven-screen Odeon, 850 parking spaces, 35 shops and several restaurants including a Nando’s. Tony Baker, director of 1249 Regeneration Partnership which is overseeing the project, said: ‘’People have very preconceived ideas of Barnsley. ’’There are pockets of low income areas but equally there are some very affluent ones.

’’I would say that we are making good progress in assembling retailers to accept the scheme. It’s been well-received in the market place and we hope to start work next year. ‘’ Robert Teal, chairman of Barnsley Voice, a group of town centre businesses, added: ‘’Barnsley businesses have never lost faith in the town and knew that the redevelopment would happen in time. ’’As far as retail is concerned what will be important is to attract a new kind of customer as well as keeping our existing customers happy.’’

This was the WAB week... WAB pictures of the week...

EACH week we ask you to send in your favourite photo taken during the week. Here’s a round-up of what we received...

n SOUNDING GOOD: Barnsley Youth Choir recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. Picture: Sarah Brabbin.

Submitted by: Top left, Laura Hitchen; top right, Shona Leigh; below left, Katrina White; below right, Tracey Exley.

Youth choir audition is well worth a go LAST week proved to be quite entertaining in the world of politics. I’m not going to go into detail but I do wish that this diabolical charade would get sorted sooner rather than later! It’s not long until we’re set to leave the EU and it really does need to go as smoothly as possible. As the kids settle back at school several parents have taken to Facebook and reported to us about their child’s uniform policy. It’s always a divisive one. I do understand why

the rules are in place at times and I do think it is far-fetched that kids were made to cut tags off their shoes. But it’s not something I think makes a difference to their overall appearance because if they look smart that’s all that matters. It’s fab to hear that there was a Barnsley lass on supermarket sweep. I always remember watching the show as a child and it’s amazing to see it back on our screens. I’m excited for the series and it’s even better

to see that once again Barnsley is on the map. If you’ve got a young one who loves singing be sure to take them to the Barnsley Youth Choir audition. It’s a fantastic opportunity and the Youth Choir is one of the most famous in the world! I absolutely love choirs and the hairs on my arms always stand up when I hear them sing. Tell your MiniWABer to give it a go! Email bycauditions@ for full details. Have a great week. Altine.

MiniWABer Lainey’s a winner EACH week we give away a pass to Playmania to one of tarn’s cutest kids. This week’s winner is oneyear-old Lainey Brooke Wilson. Isn’t she beautiful? Enjoy your time at Playmania!

Stendel proud of Barnsley performance despite derby defeat by buoyant Leeds HEAD coach Daniel Stendel said he was proud of his Barnsley players despite their Yorkshire derby defeat at home to Leeds United on Sunday. The visitors netted in the 83rd and 89th minute after both sides had plenty of chances in an even contest. Barnsley slipped into Championship relegation zone while Leeds, who scored through Eddie Nketiah and Mateusz Klich, with a penalty, went top. Stendel said: “The main point is I am proud of this performance. We played like we can play. “When you create so many chances against Leeds, it’s a very good performance. But we needed to take the chances in the right moment. “In the end, you can see why Leeds have a big chance to be promoted this season. “We are all disappointed but this is the performance we need every week and also to score. If we do that, we will win the points we need to stay in the league.” Stendel said before the game that he had worked during the international break on returning to the high-pressing style that earned promotion from League One last season. “We had a high press, kept Leeds in their own half a lot of the time and created a lot of chances after winning the ball.” he added. “We played fast and defended high. I wanted to have the feeling when I stand on the sideline that we can win the game and that we want to win the game and we play with courage. “I saw that and then I can accept when we lose the game. In the end, Leeds was the better team but, for our effort, we deserved a point.” Substitute Mamadou Thiam conceded the free-kick from which Nketiah turned in the opener, then the visitors got a second from the penalty spot after Aapo Halme’s foul. “When we conceded the freekick I thought ‘oh no’,” said Stendel. “Mistakes happen and we concede goals. It was a free-kick and penalty that decided the game but both teams had a lot of chances to score normal goals. We could have been in front by then.” Stendel was pleased to bring back players from injury such as Cauley Woodrow, Jacob Brown, Alex Mowatt and Jordan Williams. “We need those players back. Browny is a player who fits 100

per cent to our style, he plays fast, he runs in behind, he works hard and plays with a passion everyone expects when they came to Oakwell. It’s good for our team that we have more options.” Brown, who made his first appearance of the season after injury, said: “We did well for most of the game, until the last few minutes. “We had some chances and probably should have scored a couple. We just lost a bit of concentration.

Rock For Heroes show is heading to town and you can be there

“The worst thing is we worked hard all game and put a shift in but to go under towards the end is a sickener. “Leeds are clearly one of the best teams in the league so to play like we did is positive. “If we play like that as a team in other games we will pick up points.” Barnsley are back in action on Saturday, when they head to Nottingham Forest. The East Midlands side are tenth after a 1-0 win at Swansea. Alfa Semedo scored.

ROCK For Heroes returns for the second time following last year’s hugely successful tour. Bringing the perfect combination of your favourite rock and pop artists across the eras, fundraising in support of Help for Heroes, a charity who help and provide facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty.

WAB have teamed up with Total Productions and we’re giving you the opportunity to be part of the Rock Show that everyone’s talking about, packed for of all your favourite hits, laughter and an insane live band, whilst fundraising in support of an incredible charity.
