Council praised after rise in life expectancy BARNSLEY residents are living longer, according to a new report which delves into the town’s life expectancy rates. Figures, revealed in the council’s borough profile for 2019, show that residents are now expected to stay healthier for substantially longer than in the past. Healthy life expectancy at birth for females in Barnsley has increased by four-and-a-half years since a study carried out between 2010 and 2012 – during this same time period the Yorkshire and Humber rate decreased by 0.4 years and the national rate decreased by 0.1. For males in Barnsley, it has increased by two years when the Yorkshire and Humber rate increased by 0.4 years and the national rate remained the same. The report said: “Life expectancy at birth for females is currently 81.9 years compared with 79.6 years between 2001 and 2003. “The difference in life expectancy at birth for females born in Barnsley and those in the rest of England is 1.2 years.

“The gap between Barnsley and England figures has slightly decreased when compared with 2012 to 2014, where the difference was 1.4 years. “Life expectancy at birth for males is currently 78.1 years compared with 74.6 years between 2001 and 2003. “The difference in life expectancy at birth for males born in Barnsley and those in the rest of England is 1.5 years. “The gap between Barnsley and England figures for men has slightly widened compared with 2012 to 2014, where it was 1.1 years.” The improvement is credited in part to work done by the council with projects such as its innovative scheme to create a smoke-free borough, dubbed Breathe 2025 and which aims to remove smoking from the sight of children. Smoking prevalence across Barnsley was at 21.2 per cent early last year, which equated to more than 52,000 smokers in the town or more than one in five people, although latest figures suggest that that percentage has dropped by about four per cent as a result of the stop-smoking scheme.

POLICE officers are asking for the public to help identify a man in connection with a burglary and stolen bank card. It is reported that on Thursday, July 25, a burglary took place on Kestrel Drive in Doncaster, during which two vehicles were stolen. The vehicles contained personal belongings and it is believed a bank card which was in the vehicle was used in Goldthorpe, a few hours later to make several purchases. South Yorkshire Police officers would like to speak to the man in the CCTV image in connection with the incident. Anyone who recognises him is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 57 of July 25 2019.

Running brothers back

charity for homeless THREE brothers are preparing to run a half marathon in memory of their dad who dedicated his time to helping a homeless shelter. William Norman, 26 and his brothers, Ben 28 and Thom 31, will be participating in the Great North Run on September 8 along with Karen Delgado, Thom’s partner. Their father, Andy Norman, died in August 2018 aged 58 after suffering a heart attack. Following his death, the brothers were touched by a wonderful gesture homeless charity CentrePoint made in memory of their dad, by opening a learning hub and naming it after him. He had helped the charity for more than ten years. The Andy Norman

Learning Hub, supported by the Morrisons Foundation, is a dedicated space in which young people can learn and improve the skills they need to move towards education, training and ultimately independence. The hub is available not just to CentrePoint residents but also to young people who are at risk of homelessness in Barnsley. CentrePoint’s Patron the Duke of Cambridge officially opened the hub in November along with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge. William, of Staith Lane, Mapplewell, said: “My dad helped to build the hub and his death was very sudden for all of us. “It was a wonderful gesture for CentrePoint

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, August 20, 2019 –

MPs are critical of cuts to bus services WIDESPREAD changes to Barnsley’s bus services have been questioned by the borough’s MPs – but transport bosses have defended the moves, blaming spiralling running costs, reduced funding and dwindling numbers of passengers. From September 1, a large number of Barnsley’s services will undergo timetable changes – with some, like the 1 from Barnsley to Staincross and 11 to Athersley North, being reduced in frequency, and others being withdrawn completely. MP for Barnsley East Stephanie Peacock said the changes could leave people isolated and unable to ‘go about their lives’. “Buses are a lifeline for people in communities like Barnsley,” said Stephanie. “And changes to services can have a profound impact on the lives of residents. “Reductions and redirections can leave people isolated, unable to attend appointments, get to the shops, or faced with the choice of using expensive alternatives to go about their lives. “As I’ve stated in Parliament, bus services should be operated with the needs of passengers in mind, not profit, and the impact of these amendments will provide further evidence to the Sheffield City Region review currently underway as to whether private bus companies are best placed to manage services.” Barnsley Central MP and Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis, who earlier this year

launched a review of bus services across South Yorkshire, said he was keen to hear people’s opinions on the changes and how services could be improved. Dan said: “These changes are part of a wider programme of updating bus routes and timetables in South Yorkshire. It is essential that routes and timings are reviewed on a regular basis. “Although I am not responsible for determining specific routes or timetables, I am concerned about the impact of these proposed changes on communities in Barnsley. “The initial consultation for my independent bus review runs until September 13. “I would encourage everyone to contribute their views, which they can do through the Sheffield City Region website.” John Healey, MP for Wentworth and Dearne, said: “It’s disappointing to see more cuts to our local buses. “Thousands of routes have already been cut or withdrawn around the country, because the government has slashed bus funding by £645m a year. “It’s causing real difficulties for local residents, especially older and disabled people. “I challenge route changes and cuts with bus operators and the Passenger Transport Executive regularly. “Recently I managed to get a service reinstated because residents had been cut off from vital services like their post office and GP.

“But we need a Labour government that will reverse the cuts and fund new bus services.” MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge, Angela Smith, said a number of her constituents had expressed their concerns to her about the changes. “Local bus services are rightly of great interest to many local people,” she said. “I have written to the SYPTE to ask for a clear explanation of these planned changes and how they will affect local towns and villages and, most importantly, residents.” South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) executive director, Stephen Edwards, said the board had worked to minimise the impact of changes on passengers, but cuts had to be made due to rising costs, falling passenger numbers and reduced funding – with SYPTE’s public funding reduced by more than a third over the last decade. He added: “We’ve faced difficult decisions about how we spend our budget, to make sure essential economic and social connections across the region are maintained. “Reducing services isn’t something we want to do, and we have made sure, wherever possible, alternative transport links are available to passengers. “School buses have been prioritised, to maintain important services that help young people get to education and training.” For the full list of changes, find the link at BarnsleyChronicle.com

n SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: Michael Overbury was the first to play the new organ at Holy Rood Church.

Church organ played for first time A CHURCH’S newlyinstalled organ was played for the first time to coincide with its centenary. The instrument, at Holy Rood Church, George Street, was built in Slovenia and has been overseen by Dr John Rowntree, director of music at Douai Abbey in Berkshire.

Fr Damian Hughes, priest at Holy Rood, said: “The old organ which had served the church since its earliest days was very small with just four manual stops. “It had accompanied hymns and plainchant for over a century. “However, by 2017 it was in a poor state and no longer fit for a

modern church’s musical needs so the decision as taken to replace it.” The first recital was given by renowned organ player Michael Overbury from Newark, a former Corpus Christi College scholar and winner of the Manchester International Organ Competition and Royal Festival Hall soloist.

Duo seek backing for strike memoir THE FOUNDING members of the Barnsley Miners Wives Action Group are raising funds to help publish a memoir about their lives during the miners’ strike. Betty Cook and Anne Scargill met during the 1984-85 strike and have been friends ever since. They went on to

actively campaign within union and Labour movements and start their own support group. The pair are now working on a memoir detailing their lives from childhood to being mothers themselves against the backdrop of the miners’ strike. Betty and Anne are currently looking for

donations to get their book published as the cost of publication is too high. They’re working alongside Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign to raise awareness of the book and get it published. They want to write the book in their own voices, giving a truthful account of what life

BARNSLEY Youth Choir is moving to a new home at the heart of the town centre after spending ten years at Horizon Community College and Kingstone School. The world-renowned choir announced that its main ‘central’ choirs will move to Barnsley College when they return from their summer break next month. The move will also include Barnsley Singers – the sister choir for adults set up three years ago – but the children’s choirs based in the Dearne and Penistone will be unaffected. BYC has just celebrated its tenth anniversary having been established at Kingstone School in 2009, then moving to Horizon Community College which replaced Kingstone in 2012.

The choir has been highly successful and is currently the highest ranked choir from Great Britain in the World Rankings winning a total of eight first prizes in the World Choir Games 2014, and European Choir Games in 2015 and 2017. A registered charity, it serves more than 400 children and young people aged four to 24- years-old in six separate choirs and has received many awards, including the Queens Award for Voluntary Service – known as the ‘MBE’ for voluntary groups. Mat Wright, artistic director of BYC, explained: “An opportunity has arisen to relocate to the heart of the centre of Barnsley and develop a relationship with Barnsley College.”

Bruce breathing new life into ailing village AN AMBITIOUS project led by a popular former Barnsley FC striker which has resulted in an ailing sports ground being brought back into use marked its first birthday in style. Bruce Dyer took over the Miners’ Welfare Sports Ground in Grimethorpe last year and toasted its anniversary on Saturday with the Love Life UK Festival. In a community celebration, the 44-year-old invited residents to come and see what has been achieved at the Cemetery Road venue, which originally opened in 1905, in just 12 months. He told the Chronicle: “Without the community’s support, we wouldn’t have been able to make a success of the sports ground, but it’s now a real hub of activity. “It’s been a busy year but we’re well on our way now and it’s looking great. Saturday was a great occasion and we were thrilled with how many people turned up as there was also Barnsley’s South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday on the same day.” Bruce is a year into a 25-year lease he signed with the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO), owner of the venue which faced struggles with arson attacks and criminal damage.

n SKILLS SESSION: Bruce Dyer watches on as Dan Magness passes on some footballing tips.

Football club Grimethorpe Sports, now known as Grimethorpe LLUK, were forced to move out when the ground’s previous tenant, Access to Sport, terminated its contract with CISWO, but the team has since returned. Player Bayden Lockwood said: “I’m a Grimethorpe lad so we were all gutted when we had to leave when the ground closed, so it’s a special feeling to be home. “Many players’ grandfathers and dads played at the ground so it’s a massive thing to be back there and hopefully the community will continue to back us.” Bruce added: “The ground has real history in the village and was once the hub of the community.

“We’re on our way to achieving that again, but this time for generations to come. “We’ve had so much support, not only from local residents but also CISWO, who have done all they can to help get it back up and running, so Saturday was about them.” Coun Dorothy Higginbottom, who attended the event, said Bruce, a Barnsley player between 1998-2003 had ‘breathed new life’ into Grimethorpe. “It’s a blessing that he’s helping to improve the village,” she said. “It’s had its fair amount of trouble with the sports ground in the past, so it’s wonderful to see it being enjoyed again.”

Plea for information and warning posted after motorhome taken A FAMILY due to go on holiday are appealing for information after their motorhome was stolen from outside their house just one month after they purchased it. Ann Darlington, of Raley Street, Barnsley, woke up last Monday morning to discover that her 2007 Ford Chausson had been taken from outside her home while she was sleeping. The motorhome, worth around £24,000, disappeared between 1am and 6.15am. There was no evidence to show how the vehicle was taken, with no glass or parts of the vehicle left behind. Ann said: “My husband got up to let the dog out and when he opened the door he noticed the van was missing. “The motorhome is important to us because it was something we got following the death of my mum. She knew we needed a new motorhome and it was something that we got to remember her by. “We are frustrated and upset that this has happened and there is nothing on CCTV. We believe that the plates were removed before it left the street or that the van was lifted onto a recovery truck. “There was no attempt made to get the keys and we had started packing the motorhome as we were due to go away. I am distraught. “I’m now up during the night looking out the window. I just can’t

relax. I want it returned and I also want to warn other motorhome owners to be vigilant.” Anyone who saw the motorhome, registration number PN07 VNZ, should contact 101 and quote reference number 14/122277/19.

Plastic could be the answer to pothole problem AN INNOVATIVE plan in which Barnsley’s pothole-ravaged road network would be filled in with recycled plastic is being explored by the council. Trials into the use of a material – plastic-bonded asphalt – began in 2016 when Cumbria County Council pioneered the approach in the UK and further funding has been secured in order to determine structural properties and its durability. A question was posed by Coun Steve Hunt, of the Darton East ward, at a full council meeting and the council confirmed that it is something which – if it’s deemed to be costeffective and suitable – could come to the town. A statement from Barnsley Council said: “Large-scale trials into the use of plastic bonded asphalt began in 2016, with Cumbria County Council pioneering the approach in the UK. “Their initial pilot project secured an additional £1.6m funding earlier in the year to extend the trial and further develop the process for selection and testing of the plastic components to determine structural properties and lifecycle durability. “It is hoped that once complete, their pilot will provide an innovative and cost-effective solution that can assist all councils across the UK

and abroad and provide a catalyst for use of recycled single-use plastic in roads. “The Cumbria pilot is supported by four higher education and three private sector partners. As this is still a relatively new concept, the long-term effects or consequences of using plastic as a road repair material have not been fully established. “We have contacted some of the organisations involved in pilot projects regarding the potential of using recycled plastics in road repairs and look forward to creating opportunities for Barnsley Council in the future. “However, with more and more councils trialling this kind of material we have made contact with MacRebur, the primary UK supplier of plastic-bonded asphalt and the partner supplier for Cumbria, with a view to exploring what opportunities there could be to pilot the material here in Barnsley. “In addition to that we will continue to monitor the Cumbria pilot and look for opportunities in our future maintenance programmes to trial any new Department for Transport-approved materials.” In the short-term, £4m will be spent on Barnsley’s principal roads in 2019/20 – £2.18m has been allocated for maintaining routes, while £845,000

will be invested in footpaths across the borough. Roads identified for resurfacing on a priority basis include Lowe Lane and North Lane in the Penistone East ward; Doncaster Road, Stairfoot; Highstone Lane, Kingstone; Everill Gate Lane, Darfield, Lidget Lane, Thurnscoe; Shaw Lane, Monk Bretton and Bamburgh Lane, Goldthorpe. The cost, which comes at a time of reduced budgets, is something of a concern to Coun Hannah Kitching – Coun Hunt’s Liberal Democrat colleague – who has welcomed the council’s confirmation that they are looking into the innovative alternative. “It’s obviously a very good idea as it’s a winwin situation – Barnsley has a problem with potholes that’s not only an expensive one but it’s recurring,” she said. “After each winter we seem to be going back to square one and although work needs to be done to see how hard wearing the plastic material is, I welcome anything that costs less and allows repair work to be carried out quicker. “Workers are playing catch-up on Barnsley’s road network and it’s great that the council has seen that another local authority has been proactive and is willing to take the idea as a potential solution.”

Council is keen to update fleet BACKING is expected to be given for the council to press ahead with its £5.7m plan to replace 149 ageing vehicles in its fleet. Ruling cabinet members will discuss a report which lists the next steps of its vehicle replacement strategy. ‘At least’ 25 per cent of the new fleet will be classed as ‘ultra low emissions vehicles’ (ULEVs), costing an additional £250,000 as the council moves towards achieving a ‘zero carbon’ estate by 2040. At least 30 electric charging points are also included in the proposal, at a cost of £100,000,

enabling the introduction of more plug-in electric vehicles to the fleet. The report said: “The council’s total fleet is made up of 433 vehicles and pieces of plant and equipment with a total capital value of approximately £14.3m, and it is essential for frontline services to deliver both statutory and income generating services. “Once a vehicle reaches the end of this lifespan there is an increase in maintenance cost and vehicle downtime. “Therefore it is imperative that vehicles are replaced once they reach this point

to ensure that excess downtime doesn’t adversely affect departments’ abilities to deliver their services and the council does not incur additional costs associated with maintenance on vehicles at the end of their lives. At least 25 per cent of the replacements will swap diesel or petrol vehicles for ULEVs. “A ULEV is defined as a vehicle that emits less than 75g of carbon dioxide per kilometre travelled and is capable of at least ten miles of zero emission driving between recharging. “The total capital cost is estimated to be in the region of £5.785m.”

Spandau star Martin heading to town MARTIN KEMP is coming to Barnsley as he dusts off some of his old records for a 1980s-themed DJ set at the Birdwell Venue. The iconic musician and actor will take to the decks as part of his ‘Back to the 80s’ DJ tour, which will see him travelling the country entertaining crowds with hits from his favourite decade. Martin has had a long and varied career, kickstarted in 1979 when he formed Spandau Ballet as the band’s bassist.

He went on to star alongside his older brother and bandmate Gary as one half of the infamous Kray twins in a 1990 film, starring in several Hollywood productions before landing perhaps his most well-known role as Steve Owen in Eastenders – for which he won three TV Quick Best Soap Actor awards, five British Soap Awards and a National Television Award. He carried on his acting career before briefly reforming Spandau Ballet in 2009, 19 years after

their last performance, and now Martin splits his time between acting on stage and screen. The band are one of the most successful of the New Romantic era, selling more than 25 million albums worldwide, eight UK topten albums and ten top-ten singles, with their 1983 song ‘True’ topping the charts. Martin’s ‘Back to the 80s’ show will head to the Birdwell Venue on September 20. For tickets and more information visit www.birdwellvenue.com.

Fresh warning over reservoir swimming WARNINGS have been issued in order to make people think twice about swimming in Barnsley’s reservoirs during the summer after a man had to be pulled from Langsett’s cold water. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) said the public needs to be aware that when outdoor temperatures may well be soaring, water in deep reservoirs can still be in single figures. It’s cold enough to cause bodies to go into shock, leading to abnormal breathing, which can lead to even the strongest swimmers drowning due to the sudden temperature change. Barnsley’s reservoirs – some of which are popular haunts for organised swimming groups – include Worsbrough, Howbrook, Elsecar, Winscar and Langsett and while club swims are permitted at some, extra signage has recently been erected by owners including Yorkshire Water about the dangers of entering the water. The warning comes

after a 31-year-old man had to be rescued from Langsett who, according to emergency services, had sought somewhere cool to take a dip. Darren Lynch, from Yorkshire Water, said: “Most people think reservoirs are safe places to swim, but they pose a huge risk which could lead to loss of life. “They are often colder than rivers and this can result in shock that can lead to hyperventilation, increased blood pressure, breathing difficulties and heart attacks. “Water temperatures remain just as cold in summer as in winter. “We have beautiful reservoirs that we want walkers, cyclists, runners, picnic-goers and others to enjoy this summer, we just don’t want anyone to swim in them and to obey our warning signs.” According to a RoSPA spokesman, the man who was pulled from Langsett did not sustain any injuries. “Our search, rescue and emergency services respond to thousands of water-related rescues annually,” they added.

WAB pictures of the week...

Conor Chaplin BARNSLEY were denied victory over Charlton Athletic by a last-gasp penalty at Oakwell. Lyle Taylor slotted home from the spot to salvage a 2-2 draw for the London side in the Championship meeting of two of last season’s promoted teams. Conor Chaplin, a close-season signing from Coventry City, had put Barnsley ahead for the second time soon after half-time, when he evaded defenders to score with a powerful drive after good work by Cameron McGeehan and Cauley Woodrow. But Bambo Diaby’s foul on Conor Gallagher gave Charlton a late lifeline. In the first half, Woodrow’s stunning volley in the 34th minute was cancelled out by Gallagher, who met Jonny Williams’ cross

Late drama as Reds are denied win

Holiday fun continues... PLENTY of you are still making the most of the summer holidays. Here’s a pictorial round-up of what you’ve all been up to... Submitted by (right) Charlotte Sissons, below, from left, Katie Grantham, Samantha Webb and Sam Scott.

Cauley Woodrow to fire into the bottom corner. Barnsley have four points from three league game ahead of tonight’s trip to Birmngham City. Head coach Daniel Stendel said: “We played so much better than in the last two games. “Cauley Woodrow scored a very good goal,

and we’re very convinced about the qualities of Conor Chaplin. We wanted to sign him last year. “When you see the three matches we’ve played so far, we have played good games and I think we have a good chance to win enough points to stay in this league.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, August 20, 2019 –

This was the WAB week...

From dancing to exam results to getting ready for the new school term, it’s a busy time HOW amazing was Dancing Town this week? I saw so many excited youngsters taking part in various workshops throughout the week and it was wonderful to see. The effort that kids put in to do the best they can do is phenomenal. I went along to watch the end of George Sampson’s workshop and the flexibility of the kids was amazing. So many children were doing the ‘worm’ and the ‘crab’ and quite frankly my back hurt just looking at it! I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what’s in store next year. Congratulations to everyone who received their A Level results on Thursday. I got mine ten years ago (I know it’s hard to believe) and it still feels like yesterday I was anxiously waiting for my results and finding out which university I would be attending. If you didn’t get the grades you hoped for, it’s not the end of the world. There are so many options available through clearing, or you

can take an alternative route and apply for an apprenticeship or top-up courses at college. The list is endless and so are the opportunities, so don’t think the door is closed if you didn’t get the grades you need. On that note, good luck to everyone who will be receiving their GCSE results on Thursday. The end of compulsory education is a big step, but again, the opportunities are endless. Take advantage of them! There are only two weeks left of the summer holidays. Time to start buying school uniform and preparing for the new term. I say every year I’ll go earlier, but in reality, I am that parent that will be running around panicking because I can’t find uniform in my child’s size and will end up spending more than I need to because all the deals have finished. I’m going to do my best to not go on September 1 but we shall see... ‘Ave a good week! Altine

WONDERFUL WORKSHOP: Altine with George Sampson, whose dancing was a big hit with the youngsters (below).

A week in WAB history

Well done Faith-Olivia

New library on the way but cinema staff not worried by potential rival

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

WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from year gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in August 2015... August 4 Images show sneak preview of Barnsley’s new library COMPUTER-generated images of Barnsley’s new library have been submitted to the council this week. Outline planning application for the town centre redevelopment was approved by Barnsley Council’s planning board in July. This includes plans for the development of retail, leisure and market space, including areas for food and drink and a cinema, along with an additional shopping area. There are proposals for a new library, car parking on the former CEAG site and a pedestrian footbridge across the railway. The Metropolitan Centre will also be refurbished and extended. August 4 Parkway Cinema in Barnsley celebrates eight anniversary STAFF at the Parkway Cinema in Barnsley have used their eighth anniversary celebration to say they see no reason to worry yet amid rumours of a new multiplex cinema. Parkway reopened the town centre cinema in August 2007 following the closure and subsequent sale by Odeon in September 2005. The first full week of films began on Friday, August 10 with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Simpsons Movie, Die Hard 4.0 and Shrek the Third.

LOL lines

Pop tickets up for grabs... AS Shalamar, Howard Hewitt and Jeffrey Daniel sold more than 25 million records world wide and collected no less than 100 gold, silver and platinum awards. They always whip the crowd into a frenzy with classics such as ‘A Night To Remember’, ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’, and ‘I Owe You One’. Howard and Jeffrey, together with Carolyn Griffey the daughter of Solar Records founder Dick Griffey, bring an exciting blend of funk, disco and soul to every live show. One of the most powerful and energetic acts on the circuit today. As noted in ‘British Hit Singles & Albums’, Shalamar were regarded as fashion icons and trend-setters, and helped to introduce ‘body-popping’ to the United

Kingdom. Jeffrey Daniel brought street dance to the UK and he is noted as the dance mentor for Michael Jackson and the man who taught him the moonwalk. Shalamar will be performing at the Holmfirth Picturedome on August 30 and WAB have teamed up with MP Promotions to give one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to see them live. To win, just answer this question: ‘What year was ‘A Night To Remember’ released?’ Send your answer along with your name and contact telephone number to competitions@ wearebarnsley.com or send in your answer to WAB Shalamar, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The competition closes on Friday August 23. Good luck!

Director Rob Younger said: “We were extremely saddened by the untimely death of one of the original Directors and business partners. Gerald Parkes MBE sadly passed away in May 2013. Without his enthusiasm, dedication and support, it is unlikely that the cinema would have ever reopened. “Against all odds, the cinema is still open and entertaining the people of Barnsley. With just two screens, we have to select the films carefully, but generally we provide a good mix of the latest releases. “Once again there is talk of a new multiplex (or possibly two) coming to the town. What’s our thoughts? Ten years after Odeon panicked and closed the building, there is still no multiplex. Thanks to our superb and loyal customers, we see no reason to worry yet.”

August 26 Barnsley brewery refresh branding to mark 12th anniversary A BARNSLEY brewery has refreshed its branding to stand out from the crowd and mark its 12th anniversary. Acrorn Brewery has also announced it will spend £60,000 on new brewing equipment and office space. Dave Hughes, owner of Acorn Brewery said: “We have been trading for 12 years now and have not changed our branding over that time, but feel the time is right for a refresh now. “The brewing industry has changed a lot since we started, and particularly in the last six years or so. “There are more independent brewers and it is much more important to have a clear standout identity at the pumps and on the supermarket shelf.”
