Council chiefs are accused of stifling debate A POLITICAL dispute has erupted over plans to limit councillors’ questions to 30 minutes when the full authority meets in Barnsley, with council leaders accused of ‘trying to shut down discussion’. But council leader Sir Steve Houghton, who is proposing changes to standing orders around members’ questions, insists the update is a response to criticism that the existing system did not allow for adequate answers to be provided in all cases. Councillors have the opportunity to ask questions of senior colleagues with responsibility for the authority’s services at the start of full council meetings, which are held regularly, but the system has had very limited use in recent years. That changed when Liberal Democrat Councillor Hannah Kitching was elected to represent the Penistone West ward last year and she has presented many questions since then. Following the local elections earlier this month, she now has three Lib Dem colleagues on the council, alongside increased numbers from other opposition groups.

As a result, Coun Houghton has tabled a motion that the council restricts time for questions and answers in meetings to 30 minutes, with any exceeding that timescale answered in writing. The one-day grace period to allow for answers to be compiled has also been increased to six, a measure which takes account of the fact the council’s workforce has been halved through austerity, leaving few officers to work at compiling information for answers. Coun Kitching is now planning to suggest an amendment when Coun Houghton’s motion, which his seconded by his deputy Coun Jim Andrews, is discussed next week, which would pave the way for members of the public to ask their own questions, if accepted. She said the change would ‘stifle debate and scrutiny’. “To put a time limit on the opportunity for transparency is completely unacceptable,” she said. “That is the council trying to shut down discussion.”

INBRIEF... Wanted man DETECTIVES in Barnsley are asking for help to find a wanted man who left a woman with serious injuries. Patrick Connors, 34, believed to reside in Manchester, is wanted in connection to an assault in Barnsley on Monday May 6, when a woman in her 30s was left with serious injuries. Police want to hear from anyone who has seen or spoken to Connors recently, or who knows where he is staying. He also has links with Doncaster and it is possible he could be anywhere in the north of England. Officers advise that if anyone sees him, they should not approach him but instead call 999. Anyone with information as to where he might be is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 1060 of May 6. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. n UNDER THE HAMMER: An auction will be held to raise vital funds to maintain The Cooper Gallery collection of art.

Take a trip to Middle Ages BARNSLEY’S ruined medieval priory will be host to a middle ages themed history event. Medieval May-hem will take place at Monk Bretton Priory this Saturday where it will host a range of family-fun activities. Inferna Peditum, which is a local history group, will be attending and giving a weapons and armour demonstration, longbow and crossbow demonstrations, cooking medieval meals and giving a talk on herbs, spices, hunting and what life was like in medieval times. Devilstick Peat, an award-winning Middle-Ages themed magician, juggler and children’s entertainer will also be present on the day to entertain all with his jesting. There will be also be a knight’s tournament, archery, birds of prey, pony rides, history talks and demonstrations and an artisan market place which will sell handmade Yorkshire produce. The day will run from 11am until 4pm and the mayor will arrive at noon. The event has been made possible by funding from the South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau and the North East Area Team.

Society has stamped its mark over the years

n ANNIVERSARY: Barnsley Philatelic Society president Trevor Larkins.

STAMP collecting might be something of an acquired taste – but a society that celebrates the somewhat rarefied hobby is celebrating its 75th birthday. Barnsley Philatelic Society, formed on January 7, 1944, held a special celebration to mark its big birthday – with more than a dozen collectors and a number of guest speakers meeting to discuss the pastime at the Friends Meeting House on Huddersfield Road. On display at the meeting – the group’s 1,278th – were a number of rare stamps, including Queen Victoria Penny Blacks and King George VI stamps from the year of the society’s formation.

Fly-tipped tyres probe MORE than 100 tyres found fly-tipped by a road in Cawthorne have led Barnsley Council to look into putting more pressure on unregistered tyre dealers. Barnsley Council’s environmental services team were alerted to the incident by a member of the public, who reported 20 tyres left in the road at South Lane. However when staff arrived, they found closer to 30 tyres in the road, and more than 100 dumped in the culvert at the side of the carriageway – a load which they estimate would fill two pick-up trucks. Paul Castle, service

director at the council, said over the last six months large amounts of fly-tipped tyres have become a ‘common theme’ in the council’s ongoing battle with fly-tippers, which the council puts down to unregistered tyre dealers not disposing of old tyres through the proper channels. “Someone clearly knew what they were doing here,” said Paul. “If I was running a tyre business, I would be very annoyed by this. It’s socially unacceptable, and it’s giving them a bad name. “The other side is obviously the environmental impact.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday May 21, 2019 –

TV times for Katie, the parkrun hero A TEENAGER who found running helped her manage epileptic seizures has starred on a new TV programme alongside Olympic gold medalist Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill. Katie Lee, 19, of Chantry Grove, Royston, has suffered from epilepsy since she was just six, and one day after going to watch her dad take part in a parkrun, she decided to have a go herself and has not looked back since. Parkrun is a free weekly 5km timed run open to anyone. It takes place every Saturday morning at more than 1,400 locations across the world – including Locke Park. Taking part in her first run at the age of 13, Katie found that running not only helped with her epilepsy but helped her build her confidence and gave her a chance to meet new people and make friends. “Epilepsy has changed my life severely, the simplest things for some people is what I find very challenging,” said Katie. “When I have a seizure I become tearful and need reassuring. It’s not easy to live with because of the things I can’t do.” Last summer Katie was contacted by Tim Langford, a London director and script writer, who

was directing a new documentary, Jessica’s parkrun heroes – which is a series of ten inspirational short films telling the stories of people who take part in parkruns across the UK. Katie took part in a telephone interview with Tim explaining everything she had been through with her condition but was later told that she wasn’t going to be featured in the series. However, Katie then decided to make a short film herself telling her story, which she later sent off to the production company. She then received a phone call saying the producers had changed their minds and wanted her to feature. “I only found out I was taking part in it back in December,” added Katie. “When I first went to meet Jess Ennis, she told me she had been really looking forward to meeting me because she saw all of my video telling my story and really wanted to speak to me about it. “She was really down to earth and really lovely and kept praising me about everything I have done. “The filming took place one Friday in local places around Barnsley and then we filmed on a Saturday during the parkrun. “It was a really brilliant

experience and in the future I’d love to help people who suffer with learning difficulties to get active.” Katie’s episode of parkrun heroes is an emotional story where she explains what life is like living with epilepsy and can be seen on Sky On Demand.

Town to be digital hub BARNSLEY will work alongside six European locations as part of a scheme to make the town a digital hub for creative businesses. Last year Barnsley Council made a successful application to URBACT’s TechRevolution Network and the scheme allows Barnsley to work alongside other towns and cities to transfer skills and good practice. The partners in the network are Vilanova I la Geltru (Spain), Pardubice (Czech Republic), Schiedam (Netherlands), Piraeus (Greece), Bacau (Romania) and Nyiregyhaza (Hungary). David Shepherd, director of economic regeneration, said: “Working with other European locations helps us to develop new and better solutions, learn from experiences and understand good practice. “It also lets us highlight the fantastic success that Enterprising Barnsley and the Digital Media Centre have had. “We will continue learning and growing from our partners. “This is essential to help us embrace technology and create jobs for a digital future.”

Westville: Damon Watson, Liam Graham, Josh Dacre, Jack Waldron, Aaron Tate, Ashley Emmett (Luke Sykes), Kieran Hirst (Shawn Mitchell), Adam Stead, Josh Moore, Jamie Williams (Craig Jackson), Nicky Harper. Westville finished six points clear of Queens United to win the Mexborough Sunday League tile.

No let-up in bid to BOOK OF THE MONTH curb off-roaders

THE FALKLANDS WAR

THERE AND BACK AGAIN By Mike Norman and Michael Jones RRP £19.99 OFFER PRICE £15.99

POLICE tasked with keeping tabs on Barnsley’s army of illegal off-road bikers say they are expecting an influx of reports as the warmer weather sets in – but have told those responsible to expect more operations geared towards stopping them in their tracks. Since January, police have been providing daily coverage in communities such as Brierley, one area hit hard due to its bordering countryside which separates West and South Yorkshire Police patches. The introduction of a problem-orientated policing (POP) plan has been brought into play by officers involved in the reduction campaign, which brings in other agencies such as the council. “POP plans look at a particular issue’s root cause,” said Inspector Andy Norton. “Although incidents tend to reduce if we deploy more patrols, we’ve found they soon flare up

again when we leave, or if they’re moved on elsewhere. “The POP plan comes into play then as it’s a partnership approach – it analyses why disorder is happening and brings in more people from multiple agencies.” Officers of the South Yorkshirewide off-road team have warned those continuing to ignore the repercussions will be caught as dedicated monthly operations come into force at multiple locations identified by fed-up residents. Sergeant Dave Baines added: “We have a commitment from the off-road team in the county and more coverage will be coming to Barnsley so hopefully we’ll see better results in the summer. “We’ll go and take the bike off them, it really is as simple as that so if the supposed owner can’t provide proof that they’ve purchased the quad or motorbike, we’ll crush it.

“Often they can’t do that and have no documentation, but we want to let residents know that off-road bikers remain a top priority. It’s an issue that’s brought up across the borough, so information as to where it’s happening and where the bikes are being kept is crucial.” Six officers visited several locations, setting off from Royston to target blackspots in the neighbouring North East ward where reports of off-road abuse have flooded in. Sgt Richard Wilson, who is leading the operation in Barnsley, said residents have grown disillusioned with reporting bikes. “We want to make it easier for the public to report details about bikes and their whereabouts as the 101 system can be slow on occasions,” he added. “We’re asking people to go through the police’s website instead as that way they can get in touch with their local team.”

On 1 April 1982 Major Mike Norman, commander of Naval Party 8901, was looking forward to a peaceful year-long tour of duty on the Falkland Islands. But events turned out differently, for the next day the Argentinians invaded and he and his small Royal Marines garrison found themselves fighting for their lives. They took up defensive positions in and around Government House and on the approaches to Stanley to protect the Governor, Rex Hunt, and delay the enemy’s advance. They were prepared to die executing these orders. After a desperate battle against vastly superior numbers, Hunt ordered them to lay down their arms. As the surrender took place, an Argentinian told a Marine: ‘The Islands are ours now’. The response was simple: ‘We will be back’. They were, and this is their story. The Royal Marines of Naval Party 8901 volunteered to join the Task Force and, some seventy-five days after the invasion, the men who were forced to watch the raising of the Argentine flag over the Islands were able, in return, to proudly run up the Falklands flag once more at Government House. Mike Norman and Michael Jones’s dramatic account draws upon Norman’s vivid recollections, the log book and action reports of the defence of Government House and Stanley, the testimony of Marines under Mike Norman’s command and recently released government archives. It is a powerful and moving tribute to men who confronted the Argentinian invaders and then fought to regain the Falklands.

Return to one probation body earns praise SOUTH Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings has welcomed the announcement that supervision of all offenders in England and Wales is to be taken over by the National Probation Service. The supervision of all offenders on probation is being put back in the public sector after a series of failings with the part-privatisation of the system – reversing changes made in 2014 by then Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. All offenders will be monitored by the NPS

from December 2020 whereas before it had previously been managing just those posing the highest threat, with low and medium-risk offenders monitored by community rehabilitation companies (CRCs). Dr Billings said: “It is hard to resist saying ‘we told you so’ but when the government decided to break the service in two – with high-level offenders coming under the NPS, and lower level under the CRCs – nobody thought it was a good idea. “Police and Crime Commissioners warned that it potentially put

the public at risk, and this has turned out to be true. “Experience has shown what probation officers, the police and PCCs always knew, that some of the low level offenders could turn into more dangerous criminals and needed the close supervision that the NPS alone could provide. “But when they were supervised at the lower level, some went on to commit serious crimes, including rape and murder. “There is no criticism of the staff of the CRCs or the leadership – they have worked flat out to

try to make the current model work but it was flawed. “The CRCs were faced with the almost impossible task of recruiting and training big numbers of new staff in a very short period of time, and payment by results was a disastrous method of funding such an important service. “I welcome the decision for one Probation Service that can make professional judgements about offenders, helping to rehabilitate those who want to turn their lives round, but closely managing those who can’t or won’t.”

Tune tough on the outside, soft on the inside A SINGER-SONGWRITER from Penistone has released her debut single. Lucy Booth, 22, from Lee Lane, Millhouse Green, describes herself as an ‘alternative pop singer’ who is influenced by Billie Eilish and Lana Del Rey. She has been writing songs since the age of 12 and was part of an acapella group while she was studying at Durham University. “I’ve always liked to perform since school,” said Lucy. “I liked singing jazz, and being in the acapella group allowed me to sing in different genres but now it’s time for me to focus on my own music.”

Police pledge over Darton troublemakers A TEENAGE gang’s reign of terror in Darton has resulted in police vowing to take action to protect residents after reports of intimidation were made. Officers involved in the crime reduction project relating to two areas – Dearne Street and Bridge Street – have started to gather information on the culprits and some suspected offenders have already been identified. Residents have been receiving antisocial behaviour surveys this week after police instated the issue as a priority for them after a spate of crime, including criminal damage. The matter, which was discussed by the public and Sergeant Dave Baines at a meeting, is also being assessed

Decision due A FINAL decision on proposals to create a new one-way ring-road is expected to be made in July. Barnsley Council – whose planning board awarded permission for the controversial scheme before Christmas – has a statutory obligation to consult with the public as its plan impacts Penny Pie Park, land which is currently designated as public open space, and a part of it will be lost. The new road is expected to reduce congestion from junction 37 of the M1 for town centre-bound vehicles but has been fiercely contested by local campaigners.

at the town’s behindclosed-doors MAAG (multi-agency action group), which includes police and council bosses, due to its severity. Sgt Baines said: “We believe the offenders are coming into Darton from other areas and a whole host of issues have been reported to us. “People have been identified and some really good work has been done already. We’re taking action but there’s a procedure to follow under the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. “We know what we’re up against as we’ve dealt with teenage gangs successfully before at places such as Canal Street, off Old Mill Lane in the town centre.”

According to the police, youngsters identified have already received visits at their homes and received antisocial behaviour warning letters. Acceptable behaviour contracts have also been mooted, which are signed by the police, the offender and a parent or carer. They include items which the youth must adhere to and, if they are caught being involved in any antisocial act, they will then be issued with a community protection notice (CPN) before court action can be pursued. Police are keen to avoid a repeat of Canal Street, where long-running issues with teenage gangs plagued nearby residents and the neighbouring Asda store.

Lucy’s first single, ‘Butterfly’, is influenced by women’s stories, particularly those she found while studying for her dissertation. “I studied anthropology at university and for my dissertation I interviewed women in the North of England about their experiences after having a baby, and one woman’s story in particular stood out to me and that became the basis for my new song. “My producer Jason Odle helped me transform the song into a more upbeat tune, because the lyrics are quite sad. “The song has quite a sweet sound which contrasts with the sad lyrics and I want

it to represent the way we present ourselves to be tough on the outside but we are soft on the inside. “I’m really excited and yet nervous,” said Lucy. “I am aware that the music industry is really hard to break into but I’m hoping people will like my music.” Lucy will be performing at Kate Rusby’s ‘Underneath the Stars’ festival in August and also the Folk Prostate Cancer Event in November as well as releasing her first EP, ‘Melancholy Blues’, on June 14.

Long public service is recognised DECADES of public service from a bastion of Barnsley’s rural community have been recognised with a BEM awarded to former councillor John Wade in a ceremony at the Town Hall. Mr Wade, 93, has a long history of public service which included membership of the old Penistone Rural District Council and Barnsley Council, which followed after a local authority re-organisation in 1974. But even after his council service concluded, Mr Wade, of Sheffield Road, Oxspring, remained an active figure in the community and was still serving as a school governor at the village school until his 90s, taking his time in that role to half a century. Mr Wade’s career was in engineering and he still part-owns a

vintage steam traction engine, but became involved in politics in response to high-profile concerns, which he successfully helped to address. He was a driving force behind resistance to plans for a new sewage treatment centre in the area, something which was amended as a result, and also in getting improvements to the water quality in the River Don which runs through the village. That had been adversely affected by

pollution from industry. Other credits include persuading the authorities that Oxspring needed bungalow accommodation for old people, resulting in the estate built alongside Sheffield Road. The investiture was conducted by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, Andrew Coombe, who was introduced by Mayor of Barnsley Coun Steve Green. The medal was awarded for services to Oxspring.

Puddlers’ Fair is a ‘feast for senses’ A VARIETY of global street entertainers will come together for a festival in Elsecar next month. Acts from the UK, USA and Argentina will showcase their skills at a new one-day festival at Elsecar Heritage Centre. The Puddlers’ Fair street celebration is a free family event which is part of the Wentworth and Elsecar Great Place project, a partnership focused on Elsecar and Wentworth Woodhouse, with the aim of bringing more visitors to the area. This year the project will bring together street theatre acts who regularly perform at Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Covent Garden and at major events around the world. As well as street performers and variety acts, there will also be a range of different food and drink stalls available to browse, alongside the regular independent shops and studios.

There will be opportunities for volunteers to work with textile artist Gemma Nemer on an art instillation which will be inspired by Wentworth and Elsecar’s iron-making puddlers. Barnsley’s poet laureate, Eloise Unerman, will also be attending the event. Rachel Blake, programme manager at WE Great Place, said: “We’re thrilled to showcase some of the very best street performers from around the world right here in Elsecar alongside young creatives from the area. “The event will be a celebration of street performance, dance, artisan makers and food and drink – it will be a real feast for the senses. “This is just one of our exciting cultural activities happening this year, inspired by Earl Fitzwilliam’s industrial empire at Elsecar and the vivid history linked to the fascinating Wentworth Woodhouse.”

Dr John Tanner, project manager for Barnsley Museums at Elsecar Heritage Centre, said: “We are so pleased to welcome the Puddlers’ Fair to the exciting calendar of events we already have. “We look forward to local communities and young people celebrating the world class skills and achievements of the Elsecar iron puddlers who were the driving force behind Earl Fitzwilliam’s iron production.” Sarah McLeod, chief executive of Wentworth Woodhouse, added: “It is great to see events in our area celebrating the rich shared heritage of the Fitzwilliams and we look forward to being part of this exciting event. “If you come along you will be in for a real treat with performers telling some of the amazing stories of our great place – Wentworth and Elsecar.” The event will run from 10.30am until 3pm on Saturday June 8.

Fundraisers are right on track

MORE than 500 pupils from Barnsley primary schools took to the track and helped to raise more than £1,000 for Cancer Research UK. The Race for Life event was set up by Barnsley College at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium in Cudworth, where students and staff were joined by pupils from Kexborough Primary School, Meadstead Primary Academy, St Helen’s Primary Academy,

Laithes Primary School, Churchfield Primary School and Birkwood Primary School. Amy Daniels, hair and beauty course leader at Barnsley College and Race for Life runner, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to the whole team at Barnsley College who organised this event and well done everyone who worked so hard to make it a success. The money we have raised will help Cancer Research UK make a real difference.”

Amanda Sowerby, Barnsley College sports maker and event organiser, added: “The Race for Life event was a great success and I am proud of what we have all achieved. The fact the money we raised will go to helping Cancer Research UK fight cancer makes everyone feel proud.” Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer.

Volunteers get the town looking tidier DOZENS of volunteers gave up their time to take part in a series of Barnsley litter-picks as part of the national Great British Spring Clean project. A progress report, compiled by North East

Area Council manager Caroline Donovan, shows that events took place in each of its four wards – Cudworth, North East, Monk Bretton and Royston – over a fourweek period from the end of March.

Almost 300 volunteering hours were clocked up collectively, resulting in more than 300 bags of rubbish being cleared. Staff and children from Ladywood Primary, Grimethorpe, received particular praise.

A LOFT conversion is a cost effective way of creating extra living space in your home without having to spend a fortune. Converting a loft can create space for an additional bedroom, office space or even a play room for your children. If you are considering a loft conversion, make sure you pay attention to the following:

1. Ensure your loft is suitable for conversion – Lofts which have a head height of 2.3 metres can be converted. If you have a chimney or water tank in the loft, this may affect whether you can convert the loft, and if the pitch of the roof is not up to standard, this can also affect whether you can convert the loft. 2. Utilise the space When you are making changes to your house it is easy to get carried away with the design

and if you have a particular vision in mind, it can sometimes be difficult to steer away from that. Utilise the space in your loft and consider the layout so the conversion is worthwhile. Take into consideration where the stairs will be positioned and work from there. 3. Windows The size and position of the windows in your loft is important to ensure that natural light can enter the room which

will create the illusion of space. The position of the windows will often be dictated by the shape of the roof; for example, a long, shallow room will benefit from windows spaced evenly along its length, whereas a narrow, deeper room will benefit from one large window. 4. Make sure the design you choose does not require planning permission If you are extending the roof space, read the legal criteria you have to meet beforehand so you know

whether you need planning permission before starting the work. 5. Building regulations A loft conversion is technically a ‘material change of use’. Due to this building regulations must be met such as the strength of the floor, minimum headroom above the staircase, fire escapes, thermal efficiency, electrics, plumbing and glazing. The preparation for building regulations can be completed by either the designer or loft conversion company you are working with.

Kitchen revamp will need an expert’s eye and touch THE kitchen is usually described as the heart of the home and having a kitchen to be proud of will no doubt bring a smile to your face as you prepare dinner or entertain guests. If you are thinking of revamping your kitchen, the one thing you need to invest in is a trusted fitter to complete the work. You may think that you’re saving money by employing someone cheaper to carry out the work, but if the job completed doesn’t last, you’ll end up spending more finding someone to redo the job. For a high-quality new kitchen, you need to be prepared to spend of between £15,000 and £20,000. This includes the appliances, which, depending on your budget, can cost up to £4,000 alone. Spending your money wisely when it comes to choosing a trader to transform your kitchen is important and you should always ensure that you have a consultation with your fitter, shop around for a reasonable price and set up a payment plan to ensure that your fitter completes the work asked of him.

Getting an extra home comfort... KICKING your shoes off after a long day at work and walking on your carpet in the living room is a warm welcome home. Choosing the right carpet for your home can be a difficult task. With several different colours, shades of colours, materials and designs, knowing which is the best carpet to suit you is not always a straight forward task. When choosing carpet, make sure to follow these three golden rules: 1. Use underlay Don’t try to save money by not having underlay. The carpet may wear quicker and carpeting relies on a layer of padding for support, strength and a bit of extra cushioning. You will definitely feel the difference when you take your shoes off and if you have children, if they fall

the extra cushioning may prevent a big bump. 2. Do you want natural or synthetic material? – Wool has long been used in carpet manufacturing and is still recognised as the best fibre because it has a luxury feel and a low propensity to soil and it’s naturally flame-retardant. Synthetic carpet is extremely hard wearing, with a high resistance to abrasion and nylon is easy to clean. It’s often used in an 80 per cent wool and 20 per cent nylon blend. 3. Choose a trusted carpet retailer Trusted retailers will provide you with a written quotation and a protected deposit and many provide and aftercare service so if you do have any hiccups, you can contact them to discuss.
