Safe Haven for children A PROJECT called Haven which aims to help insulate children from the trauma of domestic violence will be rolled out at four secondary and four primary schools across Sheffield and Barnsley, using Violence Reduction Unit grant money. It is a reaction to the fact that it is known 17,000 children in Sheffield alone are affected by domestic violence they witness at home, experiences which can have devastating consequences on their development and future lives. The aim is to take a ‘whole school’ approach, training teachers and support staff to support children in those circumstances. Long term, the aim is to change culture and end the ‘bystander’ approach, where some people are reluctant to react. A different project will provide Smartwater protection for domestic violence victims. It provides the means to spray those with legal orders with a unique liquid which can be used to prove their presence in order to help ensure they stay away from their victims. Meanwhile, Sheffield’s Cathedral Archer Project has been successful in getting people at risk of involvement

in crime into work through social enterprise organisations it has established, and funding from the Violence Reduction Unit will help to extend that work. Of 28 people given job opportunities in the three years since the work started, 23 are still involved with the project and only one has been arrested. In addition to providing work, counselling and recovery activities also form part of the package. Money from the Violence Reduction Unit is also being used for work by Trading Standards staff in Barnsley to help combat the sale of counterfeit goods. That trade is controlled by organised criminals and the products they sell, like cigarettes and alcohol, could be harmful the buyers they target. Because they sell goods which appear cheap, their actions can also create conflict with legitimate traders. No specific details have been released, but the Violence Reduction Unit backing will allow the team to acquire some of the ‘specialist tools’ they need to identify and investigate those involved in the illicit trade. n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

INBRIEF... Chickens escape as coop is torched FIREFIGHTERS were called to a ‘deliberate’ pigeon coop fire in Lundwood on Sunday. A crew from Cudworth arrived at the scene on Lang Avenue at 5.45pm. The owner had opened the coop and all birds were released. Firefighters fought the blaze for 35 minutes and believe the fire was started deliberately.

Animal rescue A DOG made a lucky escape after a property caught fire. Firefighters were called to Kings Road, Cudworth at 10.25pm last Tuesday following reports that a domestic premises was alight. A dog was rescued by firefighters and the crews from Barnsley, Dearne and Tankersley used a hose reel to extinguish the blaze. There were no other casualties in the incident and firefighters left the scene at midnight. An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.

MEMBERS of a group which offers support to adults with learning disabilities were given a festive surprise when they had a special visit from Father Christmas. Penistone Gateway, based in High Street, Penistone, meets every week and aims to provide a place for its members to meet and ‘grow together’. The group runs weekly ‘club’ nights every Friday evening during school term time for members from around Penistone and Barnsley. And 11 of the group got a special surprise and visit to their Christmas party from Father Christmas, who spent time with the members and gave out presents. Ian Yems, secretary for Penistone Gateway, said: “We had our Christmas party, which

was supported by a local business, Home Cooking, who supplied a buffet. “Also, Penistone Round Table at this time of year are touring the local areas raising money with their Santa Sleigh, every year they take time out to visit us and Santa spends some time with the members. “They are always so excited by his visit and always rush outside to see the sleigh. “The evening ended with karaoke and we have bought a new speaker with disco lights and wireless microphones from our National Lottery grant. “So a very successful 2019 has drawn to a close with coming second in the Mayor’s parade and winning the Penistone Fireworks Guy competition. “We have developed a

new relationship with Art Works South Yorkshire, who have led some fantastic art and craft evenings, have been bowling and have had many new activities. Now we are looking forward to supporting the Penistone Players at the Pantomime at the Paramount in January.” Penistone Gateway members and volunteers are still celebrating after being given a £10,000 National Lottery grant, and Ian said the money will go towards buying new equipment for the group. Ian added: “The recent fantastic news of the lottery grant for our project ‘Preparing for the next Decade’ will enable the club to renew ageing equipment and make us financially secure for the next ten years. “We have an old Wii console that they love

to use for bowling and other similar games, luckily the church hall has a 55” TV on the wall. We also have a small snooker table to replace along with jigsaws and board games that are all a bit tatty. “With such a wide age range and range of abilities, we want to get a laptop and tablet with some adaptive controllers so that the more ‘technologically able’ can help lead sessions for the other members – it is quite a challenge at times devising activities to keep all members engaged. “The grant was also for trips and activities, and we want to invite others to lead club night activities, partly to improve the experience for members, but also to help build their confidence in unfamiliar circumstances.”

Fishing for funds A FISHING match took place to raise money for bereaved and seriously ill children. Gary Brinsden, of Elsecar, founded Catch for Kids three years ago to raise money for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity after his friend’s daughter was taken seriously ill and spent Christmas at the hospital. In addition to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, the group decided to also raise money for the charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers. The charity is dedicated to supporting children who have lost a parent serving in the British

armed forces. The fishing match, which took place in Sheffield on Sunday, raised £2,300. Gary said: “While lots of people are out celebrating this time of year, it is easy to forget those who might not be so lucky. “Whether they are ill in hospital or spending the festive period without a loved one, we feel it’s important to remember them and try to help in our own way. “I also have members who are involved in Catch for Kids who are ex-armed forces who told me about Scotty’s Little Soldiers, so was keen to help in any way I can.”

Caring Molly hailed for spreading some Christmas warmth A YOUNG girl who will ‘save the world one day’ has set her sights on helping Barnsley’s homeless to keep warm this Christmas. Molly Kaye, ten, first had the idea to help Barnsley’s homeless at Christmas back in September when she saw a homeless man outside her dance school on Eldon Street. When she asked her mum, Caroline, how the homeless got presents at Christmas, Molly was shocked to discover that they would not be receiving any gifts. “I told her that they wouldn’t be getting presents and she said she would give them one,” said Caroline of Park View Road, Staincross. “She wanted to give them a hat, scarf and gloves so that they wouldn’t get cold in the winter and she set about getting donations.” Molly appealed for donations from her dance school, family and friends, and businesses in the Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC) on Wilthorpe Road. A marketing business in Leeds even donated £50 after hearing about the appeal. “I spoke with Action for Barnsley Homeless, who run a soup kitchen, about what Molly wanted to do and they said that they typically get around 95 homeless people through the door each week, and so Molly set the target of collecting 100 sets of hat, scarves and gloves to donate there.” Molly, who is ‘always helping someone’ according to her mum, also wanted to volunteer at the Action for Barnsley Homeless Christmas dinner, but she is not yet old enough, so she organised a bake sale at her primary school to help raise more funds to go towards donations for the cause. “She had a meeting with her headteacher and told him what

she wanted to do and he said he was nearly in tears by the end of it. She is really quite determined to help – once she gets an idea in her head she will keep going until it’s done which I really admire about her. Last year she even got the school to stop laminating to stop plastic from going into the sea. “She will save the world one day, I am so proud of her.” Jill Martin, administrator at Action for Barnsley Homeless, said: “Molly has done a fantas-

tic job – it’s absolutely amazing that she has collected so many donations and it will go a long way. Without people’s donations we wouldn’t be able to keep going as we rely on donations from the general public.” Action for Homeless Barnsley are in need of food, clothing, and toiletries donations in order to keep providing their service to Barnsley’s homeless.

Better public transport a priority for MP Miriam BARNSLEY’S first Conservative MP to be elected since 1931 says that the town was ‘ready for a change’ having heard residents say they were tired of being left behind. Miriam Cates was elected Conservative MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge, which includes Dodworth and much of Pogmoor, with 23,688 votes. Her 7,210 majority was the biggest of all the four MPs elected for Barnsley, and she scored 47.8 per cent of the vote. She said: “I’m proud and humbled, it has been busy as it’s all new, but I can’t wait to get involved with the issues my constituents care about the most. “We must have knocked on more than 10,000 doors throughout the campaign and heard from people of all backgrounds. “It struck me that they were ready for a change, even those who have been lifelong Labour voters who opted for the Conservative Party. “My constituency involves both Barnsley Council and Sheffield City Council.

PROUD: Newly-elected MP Miriam Cates. “It’s fair to say residents have had issues with both and in the Dodworth ward the goings-on at Penny Pie Park are definitely on my radar. “People told me that they feel like their voices haven’t been heard, that they are being left behind and decided to vote for a change as a result.” Miriam said to win in an area

which had supported Labour for so long was an honour. “It was a history-making night, a proud one, but for a long time there’s been a frustration and a sense that residents have been unrepresented,” she added. “Brexit, clearly, is still one of the main issues and as soon as that’s over the line my num-

ber one priority will be public transport and infrastructure. “Much of the constituency is semi-rural and it is effectively cut-off, with poor quality and unreliable public transport. This needs to change and I will be working alongside Sheffield City Region’s leaders to access funding to improve that.”

Plan ahead for travel SOUTH Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is reminding customers to plan ahead for their travel during the festive period in Barnsley. From Friday until Monday (December 30), buses will follow a Saturday service, apart from Sunday, (December 29), when they will operate a Sunday timetable. Train services will run as normal after a late start on Friday. Today (Christmas Eve) and New Year’s Eve, buses will run a Saturday service, with last departures between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, whereas trains will run a normal service. “Most local bus, tram and train services will follow Saturday timetables with an early finish, but, as usual, there will be no bus or train services on Christmas Day or Boxing Day in Barnsley,” said SYPTE’s director of customer services Tim Taylor. There will be no bus services on New Year’s Day, but they will follow a Saturday timetable with some exceptions

on Thursday, January 2 and Friday, January 3, resuming normal service on Saturday, January 4. Trains will resume normal timetables on New Year’s Day, after a late start. “Trains are expected to be busier than usual and customers are encouraged to check with National Rail or their operating company for any planned engineering works or local service updates,” added Tim. “Customers can register with Travel South Yorkshire to receive a free email alert whenever there are changes to public transport services.” From Boxing Day until New Year’s Day, holders of SYPTEissued English National Concessionary Travel Scheme Senior Passes can travel for free on bus and tram, and for half fare on Northern Rail services within South Yorkshire, without restrictions from the start to end of service.

Council ’does not listen’ to its people

CAMPAIGNERS whose behaviour was described as ‘downright disgusting’ by senior councillors during a public consultation over plans to build up to 1,700 homes on open fields have accused leaders of not listening to the town’s residents. The site, designated Barnsley West MU1, has been earmarked for housing, a 300-place primary school and employment land and is part of the town’s local plan, which sets out a blueprint for new housing and employment sites until 2033. A report, outlining the scheme’s details as shaped by feedback from public consultation events in October, was approved by cabinet members last week and formally adopted at last Thursday’s full council meeting – despite multiple councillors voting against it. It was revealed that a link road – designed to ease congestion on Higham Common Road – will be created ‘early on’, but only after 237 homes are built on the site, according to council leader Sir Steve Houghton. Coun Hannah Kitching told the meeting: “We believe this framework was a predetermined conclusion as it’s a developer’s world out there. “If Barnsley Council went out there and asked residents if they wanted this development, which

let’s not forget is in the green belt, they would hear a resounding ‘no’. “Communities do not feel like they’re being heard – the council does not listen to its public and their views are dismissed.” Couns Sharon Howard and Jim Andrews condemned the alleged actions of members of Keep It Green 2014 during the consultations, telling fellow ruling cabinet members that the campaigners ‘would not listen to reason’. However, those criticised by the councillors hit back, saying that there’s a belief across Barnsley that the council has shown a ‘reluctance’ to listen to its public following a high-profile row over Penny Pie Park in the Dodworth ward, which has been fenced off to the public in order for a new road to be created. A spokesman from Keep It Green 2014 said: “It has to be said that once again, as with the adoption of the local plan, there does appear to be an unhealthy rush to get reports through the cabinet and full council procedures. “Whether the council has ever wanted to understand residents’ concerns is open to question, since it has always appeared that the council and promoters of MU1 have been determined to use the local plan to achieve

their aims at the expense and destruction of 122 hectares of green belt land. “The people of Barnsley do not want to see this happen, and the same can be said for Penny Pie Park. The council is frightened to come out and be confronted on its unpopular policies.” The masterplan framework discussed at full council states that the consultation process allowed the local community around MU1 – bordered by Pogmoor, Higham, Gawber and Barugh Green – to help shape the development in a ‘comprehensive manner’, but this claim was disputed by campaigners. Coun Peter Fielding, who put forward an amendment which was rejected, added: “I accept that MU1 has been adopted in the council’s local plan and there’s a full intention to proceed with what is a massive development. “It is important it meets the needs and protects the interests of current and future residents, but I don’t believe this does that. It will effectively hand over control to the developers who have lobbied and cajoled Barnsley Council for many years for this lucrative area. “It does not support local residents and a phasing of the planned works needs to be much more specific.”

Katie’s perfect pick me up as book hits library shelves across borough A LOCAL blogger and author is ‘over the moon’ as her book is now stocked in libraries across the borough. Katie Portman, 40, released her book ‘A Little Pick Me Up’ in April. It focuses on empowering women and features advice to help them face daily challenges. The idea for the book came from Katie’s own life experiences that she writes about on her blog, Pouting in Heels, which she has run for nine years. “My book is the best of my blog, but on steroids,” said Katie, from Cavendish Road, Barnsley. “For myself it’s been really cathartic to see where I am now and the journey I’ve been on. “The idea is that the content will hopefully pick women up and will make them think better of themselves or their lives.” Now Katie’s book will have the chance to reach more young women as her book can now be found in libraries across Barnsley. “When I found out I felt almost as good as when the book came out,” said Katie. “My mum used to take me to the library all the time when I was a child and I would spend hours choosing which books I wanted to take out, and I can’t believe that my book is now in libraries. “It feels incredible, and I hope that it helps to inspire other young women.” Katie will also run a session for young women aged 14 and above where she will speak about her career and her book. It will take

WAB highlights of 2019

WAB pictures of the week...

That was the year that was... WE’RE nearing a new year and a new decade. Here are some of the stories that hit the headlines in 2019... February 19 Gyratory system given go ahead A CONTROVERSIAL plan to create a new gyratory system on one of Barnsley’s main roads has been approved. A proposal was drawn up last year in a bid to try and relieve congestion on the A628 Dodworth Road linking the M1 and the town centre. Prior to the application being approved by the council, a request was made to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government James Brokenshire, to ask him to ‘call in’ the application, meaning he would become the decision maker. He confirmed he will not be ‘calling in” the planning application, and it was formally approved. Leader of Barnsley Council Sir Steve Houghton said: “Further details on the process between now and the scheme starting on site, including suggested timescales, will be issued in due course.” March 15 Bridge over level crossing THE temporary bridge over Jumble Lane level crossing will be installed this weekend – although the crossing itself won’t close until the end of the month. The bridge, which will be in place for approximately 18 months until the new £5.6m Market Gate Bridge is built, is being put in place to allow the closure of Jumble Lane crossing. The new, Market Gate Bridge – to be part-funded by Network Rail – is in the final stages of design and will be going out to procurement for a main contractor in late spring. Market Gate Bridge will link the public transport and the Market Gate car park to The Glass Works development.

April 8 Cannon Hall Farm to make TV debut A FARM will host a major Channel 5 TV show in a series that starts tonight. Cannon Hall Farm, based in Cawthorne, will host Springtime on the Farm as season two returns. The show charts what life is like for farmers across the UK at their busiest time of year – Spring – and centres at Cannon Hall Farm. Celebrity special guests The Yorkshire Vets, soap star Kelvin Fletcher and Charles Collingwood, from The Archers. The Nicholson family have operated Cannon Hall Farm for 60 years and its been open as a tourist attraction since 1989.

May 2 Open top bus parade for Barnsley FC AN open-top bus parade through the town centre will take place next week following Barnsley FC’s promotion to the Championship. On Wednesday at 6.30pm, the bus will leave Oakwell before travelling along Pontefract Road, Schwäbisch Gmünd Way, Eldon Street and Market Hill before arriving at Barnsley town hall. Players and head coach Daniel Stendel will be welcomed into the town hall by the Mayor of Barnsley, Coun Steve Green, before they take to the balcony. Barnsley fans are encouraged to help paint the town a sea of red by bringing flags, banners and wearing their team colours.

September 13 Plans for new £4m fire station are released A FINAL design of what Barnsley’s new long-awaited £4m fire station will look like was revealed this week. Members of the South Yorkshire Fire Authority will meet at Barnsley Town Hall on Monday to discuss the next stages of the project, which has already been allocated a start date of December and a scheduled completion of October 2020. The existing building, on Broadway, Kingstone, forms part of a long-term plan for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue (SYFR) to make substantial investments in ‘future-proofing’ the brigade. Having reached the end of its operational life, the building was subject to an assessment before Christmas last year which looked at all options, including a multi-million pound refurbishment which was not deemed viable. According to a report, one appliance will be temporarily relocated at Cudworth station while the new facility which will cost £4m is built. October 25 Victoria Cross hero’s memory will live on DOZENS turned out to watch the unveiling of a memorial gate dedicated to Albert Edward Shepherd, the only Barnsley man to receive a Victoria Cross, for his act of bravery in the First World War. Pupils from St John’s C of E Primary, Parkside Primary and Churchfield Primary were among those to attend the service of the unveiling at St John the Baptist Church, Royston, on Monday. The Mayor of Barnsley Coun Pauline Markham opened the service alongside the Bishop of Wakefield Tony Robinson, Coun Caroline Makinson, Coun Joe Hayward and military representatives were also in attendance, in addition to relatives of Albert Shepherd.

A VERY Happy Christmas to all our WAB readers! We love seeing your festive snaps, so here’s a round-up of what we’ve received...

Turning back clock for a Christmas cracker IT SEEMS hard to believe now, but there was a time when a football match was as much of a Christmas Day staple as presents, turkey and the Queen’s Speech. Either side of the Second World War – and during it, when amazingly, some teams played in both the morning and the afternoon – there was a full fixture list on December 25, the only exception being if it fell on a Sunday, with games on the Sabbath a strict no-go until the 1970s. It was customary to reverse the fixtures on Boxing Day, to ensure sides had equal distances to travel. A festive tradition which lasted until the 1950s made sense, because Christmas Day was one of the few public holidays, and in the era before the growth of widespread television ownership, which meant slumping on the settee in front of the Eastenders Christmas special wasn’t an option, football was one of the few entertainments available. And it drew the crowds, no more so than in 1949 when, with the game at its peak of popularity, almost 3.5 million fans attended the Football League’s festive programme of three games in four days. The first recorded League match on December 25 was between Preston North End and Aston Villa in 1889, and the last between Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers in 1965. The last time Oakwell hosted a Christmas Day game was in 1951, when Queens Park Rangers were defeated 2-1 in Division Two (now the Championship). Barnsley’s final December 25 outing was a Second Division clash at Notts County in 1957. That year, because Christmas Day fell on a Wednesday, the fixture list was as stuffed as the turkey, and like all Football League teams, Tim Ward’s Reds played four matches in eight days, with the Notts double being squeezed

n Cauley Woodrow.

in between a trip to Bristol Rovers and a home clash with Derby County on successive Saturdays. In order to keep their players focused on football, the Barnsley squad stayed overnight at a hotel at Bawtry, South of Doncaster, on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, completing the journeys to Meadow Lane, then Oakwell, on the morning of each match. Having drawn 1-1 at Bristol Rovers, the Reds were 3-2 Christmas Day winners in front of an 11,343 crowd. Frank Beaumont, with a header from Johnny McCann’s cross, and Bobby Wood, with a 25-yard shot, put Steele’s side 2-0 up. County pulled one back through Gordon Wills, then after 83 minutes, Bert Loxley levelled. But right winger Arthur Kaye earned the victory, and in those days, two rather than three points. The 11 Barnsley players on duty (there were no substitutes until 1965), were Harry Hough, Jack Short, Colin Swift, Frank Bartlett, Duncan Sharp, Wood, Kaye, Beaumont, Lol Chappell, Malcolm Graham and McCann. The following day’s rematch attracted 20,307, who saw a 1-1 draw. Norman Smith, the replacement for Beaumont in manager Ward’s only team change, notched a 64th-minute close-range leveller after Johnny Sheridan headed Notts into the lead in the first half. Barnsley went on to beat Derby 3-0, sparking hopes of a possible promotion push, but fell away in the New Year and ended up 14th. The following season, with the arrival of floodlights and evening games taking away the need to play on each public holiday, public transport becoming more limited and many fans preferring to stay at home with their families, there were only nine matches on December 25, marking the beginning of the end of Christmas Day football.

West Brom prepare for Oakwell quest CHAMPIONSHIP high-flyers West Bromwich Albion will be looking for their first win at Oakwell in 72 years when they visit on Thursday for a Boxing Day fixture. The Baggies’ last victory in Barnsley was a 1-0 success in 1947 and, since then, they have lost nine and drawn eight of their 17 games at the ground. Former West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic’s side will be the first Barnsley have played twice this season after the Reds, under caretaker Adam Murray, drew 2-2 at The Hawthorns on October 22.

They led 2-0 through a brace by Cauley Woodrow, who then hit the crossbar before the hosts came back to draw. The Baggies have not beaten Barnsley in four meetings, with October’s 2-2 following a 1-1 draw, also at The Hawthorns, on the final day of the 2009-10 season having previously lost at Oakwell in 2008 and 2009. The Reds have not lost on Boxing Day since a 1-0 defeat by Preston North End at Deepdale in League One in 2014. Since then, they have won 2-0 at home to Blackburn

Rovers (Championship) and Peterborough United (League One) either side of a goalless draw at Preston (Championship). Their last home defeat on Boxing Day was in 2013 when Bolton Wanderers won 1-0 in the Championship. The West Brom game is followed by three successive away trips – to Swansea City on Sunday, Derby County on Thursday, January 2 and League Two Crewe Alexandra in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday, January 5. Then Barnsley will host Huddersfield Town in the league on January 11.

OUR

ADVERTISERS

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

11

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

On the move with our helpful guide

Moving home can be a hectic business. In the run up to the big day, it is all too easy to forget something vital. To help you avoid some of the major pitfalls, we offer the following checklist: WITH 4 WEEKS TO GO:

WITH 1 WEEK TO GO:





    

Arrange to take over gas and electricity at your new address, and make sure that all appliances will be properly fitted. Notify BT and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for a final account at your present address, and for taking over or installing telephone facilities. Arrange for change of address cards to be printed. Get estimates from removal companies, checking that comprehensive insurance cover is available against damage or loss, is there a packing and unpacking service? Confirm the date of your move. Check on your home contents insurance policies to ensure that you are covered for the move, and covered at your new address. Make arrangements for your gas and electricity meters (plus water meters where relevant) to be read and all your appliances to be disconnected on the day of your move.

  

WITH 1 DAY TO GO:

  

WITH 2 WEEKS TO GO:



 

Begin to throw out unwanted items from attics, wardrobes. What you really don’t want you may as well dump now, send to charity, or sell through the Classified pages of the Chronicle. It’s a great time for a good sort out! Confirm all arrangements, times etc. for meter readings, disconnections and reconnections, with authorities and with your buyer and seller. Make sure you have a good stock of packing materials, including sturdy boxes and plenty of string and sticky tape.

property

Cancel and pay up accounts for routine delivery services such as milk, groceries, newspapers and fuel. Re-organise these deliveries for your new address. Defrost refrigerators in preparation for move and, if you are moving a freezer and its contents, turn it up to maximum for a couple of days before your move. Send off change of address cards. Arrange and pay for automatic re-direction of your mail by the Post Office.



Cover carpets which are being left behind, so as to minimise damage during furniture removal. Check through previous lists to make sure nothing has been overlooked, then enjoy a worry-free early night! Complete your packing except for those items you are likely to need overnight, and prepare a picnic for moving day. Have a large enough cash ‘float’ available to deal with unexpected expenses, and make sure you have collected documents and valuables together in a safe place.

ON MOVING DAY:

  

Dismantle any light fittings, etc. not included in sale. Turn off electric appliances. Disconnect cooker.

CHRONICLE

…the obvious choice when selling your home

           

Turn off boiler/central heating. Turn off water. Strip beds and pack bedding and night clothes. Pack items for washing/toiletries. Take down curtains. Take up rugs, carpets, floor coverings, as required. Read gas meter. Read electricity meter. Secure all windows. Lock all doors. Leave key as arranged with new owners. On arrival at your new home, unpack slowly and methodically.
