Promotion party as Reds prepare to go on parade THEY may not have won the league, but promotion to the Championship should be enough to encourage thousands of Barnsley FC fans to descend on town tomorrow to welcome their heroes. An open-top bus parade through the town centre will take place following the Reds’ automatic promotion – finishing runners-up in League One. Tomorrow 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. Coun Steve Green, said: “We’re over the moon that the Super Reds have secured promotion to the Championship. it has been a fantastic season and the players and head coach have been terrific. “We hope that there will be a sea of supporters in the town centre on Wednesday to show the Tykes how proud Barnsley is of them.”

It had been hoped Barnsley would finish their season by winning the league, and would have done had they beaten Bristol Rovers on Saturday, and Luton lost or drawn at home to Oxford United. But Luton triumphed 3-1 at Kenilworth Road, and it made little difference that Barnsley slipped to a 2-1 defeat in the west country, where Kieffer Moore headed the visitors in front before defender Liam Lindsay was shown a red card just before half-time. Rovers’ numerical advantage eventually told when they scored twice in the final 20 minutes, Reds’ fans still have plenty to celebrate though, having already secured promotion last week – without kicking a ball – when defeats for Portsmouth and Sunderland meant they could no longer catch Barnsley in the final games of League One. n A special 56-page souvenir supplement has been produced by the Barnsley Chronicle to celebrate the Reds’ remarkable achievements. This will be on sale for £1.50 from the Barnsley Chronicle Bookshop on Church Street as well as selected supermarkets and newsagents from Thursday. Advance copies will also be available at the Civic reception tomorrow.

INBRIEF... New officers to tackle local issues FOUR new neighbourhood fire community safety officers have joined the joint community safety department. They will assist in delivering fire safety and crime prevention advice to the local community. They will work jointly across South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and will spend time addressing local issues and reducing the demand on the two services. The neighbourhood fire community safety officers (NCFO) will work closely with representatives from Barnsley, Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham Councils, partner agencies, local community groups, and colleagues to improve the services provided and reduce anti-social behaviour across South Yorkshire.

Fire at village flats

n RISING REDS: Barnsley goalkeeper Adam Davies and forward Cauley Woodrow celebrate the club’s promotion back to the Championship – just 12 months after the misery of relegation to League One. Daniel Stendel’s side went the entire campaign unbeaten at home, but a 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers in their final game meant the Reds were pipped to the title by Luton Town, who beat Oxford United 3-1 at Kenilworth Road.

PEOPLE in flats in Thurnscoe were evacuated in the early hours of Wednesday due to a fire. South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue told the Independent a sofa was set alight outside the building, on Marlborough Close, at about midnight. As a result, there was smoke inside the nearby flats, and residents were asked to leave as a precaution. A crew from Dearne station spent an hour at the scene and recorded the incident as deliberate.

Corey’s marathon effort for charity

Police’s pledge to tackle the speeders

WITH help from a local cricket club, a Barnsley FC academy coach has managed to raise nearly £2,300 for Leukaemia UK. Corey Roebuck, 26, of Market Close, Oakwell, completed the 26.2-mile long Virgin Money London Marathon in four hours and 24 minutes. He has raised £2,250 for Leukaemia UK – a charity which supports people who have been

affected by leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and other blood cancers. The charity is one that Corey holds close to his heart as he lost his sister at a young age due to leukaemia, and he wants to raise funds to help find a cure. Corey, along with his teammates at Rockingham Colliery Cricket Club, took part in an annual sponsored walk where £870 was donated to Corey’s fund-raising effort.

POLICE have confirmed they will conduct anti-speeding operations in communities across South Yorkshire after motorists ignoring the limit emerged as one of the biggest concerns for residents in the county. Speeding was outstripped only by burglary and drug problems when police asked for feedback from the public – ahead of high profile issues such as gun and knife crime, assaults, youth nuisance and problem neighbours. As a result, Chief Constable Stephen Watson has promised officers will carry out patrols to snare those who break the law and will also help communities to catch offenders themselves – though in those cases police action has to be restricted to issuing warning letters. He said: “Very often, we will do speed enforcement with members of the public, ‘guarded’ by us. “We end up writing a letter, telling them they have been seen under these circumstances.

“That seems to be going down really well. “People’s hearts sink when they get the letter, then they are relieved they are not being prosecuted.” Police enforcement is often part of Operation Duxford events, regular operations where police provide a heavy presence in a specific area to tackle problems important to residents there. Controlling publicity around that work is an element of its success, and he said: “If we broadcast it, we get inundated by people asking if we have nothing better to do. “The answer is no, in this area, no we haven’t. We want to give reassurance that we are not too busy, ever, to look at speeding issues.” Police could not ‘do speeding every day of the week, with hundreds of officers’, he said, but added: “From time to time we will do what people are asking us to do.” Problems caused by off-road motorbikers was next in the

league table to speeding and police have invested in their own off-road motorbike team to give them the capability to match those responsible for scrambling where they should not be. Conventional road vehicles previously left the force at a disadvantage in tracking offenders, who could get away relatively easily by keeping away from formal roads. The biggest concern among the public is house burglary and South Yorkshire Police’s policy is to attend every incident, where possible. Often that will involve several different arms of the service, such as CID and crime scene investigators, being sent out. However cases are dealt with depending on the circumstances, with crimes in progress getting the most urgent attention. Details were provided at a Public Accountability Board meeting, held by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, to hold the chief constable and his service to account.

Praise for the outgoing mayor A BUSY and memorable year has been chalked up by the outgoing Penistone mayor. At the annual town assembly, Coun Gillian Millner said her 12 months in office had been ‘wonderful’. In turn, she was praised for how she has done the job. And she flagged up ongoing projects still to come to fruition – including one which could mean thousands being spent in the town. An important development during her civic year was signing up for a new 25-year lease for the Paramount Cinema. “This will enable us to continue with more improvements of the building and the service we offer,” said Coun Millner.

“I am so proud of this magnificent community facility and its staff.” Notable moments included the 100th anniversary of the RAF. “This was very special as my mother was in the Dambusters squadron during the Second World War,” said Coun Millner. She also cited Yorkshire Day at Ripon Cathedral, Penistone Show, Remembrance Day events and two civic services, and Penistone Competitive Music Festival as highlights. “Unfortunately, it will probably have been the last one in that form,” said the mayor of the festival. “The number of entrants has dropped so much.” Coun Millner also paid tribute to support received

from Penistone Round Table, Ladies Circle and the Scouts. She said the town council is in the closing stages of producing the Neighbourhood Development Plan which will lead to a referendum later this year. And she outlined progress on the Principal Towns Initiative. “This is still in its early stages for Penistone, but hopefully we will soon see the final plans for spending of up to £500,000 and how that might affect and improve our town,” added Coun Millner. She said it had been ‘her privilege’ to present three Freedom of the Town awards. “This is something which had been done in the past and been allowed to lapse,” she said.

“However, the current council decided it should be reinstated and reviewed every four years. “It has been a wonderful and memorable year,” said Coun Millner. “And I thank everyone for the support and advice which ensures Penistone Town Council continues to operate efficiently.” Coun Joe Unsworth proposed a vote of thanks to the mayor for her service and a member of the public at the assembly thanked councillors ‘for all their hard work for the people of Penistone’. To echoes of agreement, Coun Brenda Hinchliff said: “The mayor has done a wonderful job. We have been very impressed with her. She has been a credit to Penistone.”

Breakfast club a big success CURRENT and ex-members of the armed forces are invited to join a breakfast club which is held every week. The Armed Forces Breakfast Club meets each Saturday at The Joseph Bramah Wetherspoon on Market Hill to enjoy a meal and like-minded conversation. Coun Joe Hayward is the armed forces champion for the council and heavily involved with the group. He said: “The group is a great way for people to meet others who they have things in common with. “Some members of the group have told me that they felt quite lonely before they started coming to these breakfasts and its lovely to see them come out of their shell and make new friends. “I’ve been involved with the

breakfast club for four or five years now after an ex-forces member sent me a letter asking for a breakfast club to be created for military families. “I looked around and found one that was already set up so I thought I would help them to bring some new members in and make the club a little better.” The club has enjoyed visits from mayors past and present as well as running raffles to fund trips. “Our oldest member is 99,” said Joe. “He is a veteran of the Battle of Arnhem and comes to the club every weekend.” The breakfast club meets every Saturday at 9am at The Joseph Bramah pub. For more information, or to attend the club, contact Coun Hayward at

Police: Stats show ‘positive picture’ CRIME rates for murder, violence, drugs and weapons all increased in Barnsley in 2018, according to latest figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The figures, which reflect a mixed result, show criminal damage and arson were both reduced – despite localised increases in theft in Barnsley town centre and a ‘worst-ever’ summer of arson attacks – but violence-related offences rocketed by 13 per cent. The stats show 108 violent crimes took place between January and August in Barnsley, the busiest period of the year, with South Yorkshire as a whole recording 15 murders – four of which occurred in Barnsley. Clare Smith, Jill Hibberd, and Gary Dean were all killed during that spell, although none were linked and police said the public have no need to be concerned

about the spate. Chf Supt Scott Green, district commander for Barnsley, said: “We expected the increase in homicides but it’s important to say that we’ve secured convictions in three out of four so far, with a trial to come in relation to Mr Dean’s murder. “We’ve posted genuine reductions in antisocial behaviour and that’s to do with the return of the neighbourhood policing teams, as well as better recording of incidents. “There have been some changes in the way the Home Office record crimes, so that’s why there’s been an increase across South Yorkshire for things such as stalking and harassment. “Knife crime is not something we’ve seen much of in Barnsley, but that’s not to say we’re being complacent, and we need to keep talking to our youngsters to discourage them if they’re thinking

Artwork on show FINAL-YEAR Barnsley College students are showcasing their artwork at The Civic. The Rendered Intent exhibition runs from tomorrow until Sunday. It’s the closing show by this year’s graduating BA (Hons) fine art practice students. The exhibits are described as ‘comprising digital installations, painting and sound work’. Evan Wood, curriculum

leader for creative industries at the college, said: “This exhibition closes the final chapter on our graduating class of BA (Hons) students. “It allows the public to view the incredible work developed by our graduating students and offers an opportunity to engage and discuss their work, offer support and guidance, satisfy a curiosity and be part of a community of artists.”

about carrying a weapon. “Overall it is a positive picture and it’s a reflection of the journey the force is on.” South Yorkshire bucked a national trend and posted a two per cent decrease in its overall crime, but concerns over the increases in serious incidents such as the murder spike have been allayed by police bosses. Deputy Chf Cons Mark Roberts added: “We are totally committed to reducing crime and this overall drop is the result of our officers’ hard work to ensure that the region’s communities remain a safe place in which to work, visit and live. “Although increases in some areas – including drug offences and possession of weapons – may appear to be a cause for concern, they are crime types that reflect our proactive approach and are priority areas for the force.”

Pupils educated in BOOK OF THE MONTH good behaviour


THERE AND BACK AGAIN By Mike Norman and Michael Jones

EFFORTS to curb anti-social behaviour in Barnsley and the rest of South Yorkshire will be boosted by the launch of a new schools education package to be jointly delivered by the police and fire services. The ‘Equinox’ package has been developed by South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue’s joint community safety department and aims to provide young people with key safety messages relating to anti-social behaviour during the ‘light night’ period. Four new neighbourhood fire community safety officers will be delivering the package, which lasts around 30 minutes and is free of charge, to year nine pupils across the county. The presentation covers a range of unacceptable anti-social behaviour activities which may cause harm to an individual, the community or the environment, and students will be informed of the potential consequences of such

behaviour. This includes arson, hoax calls, off-road motorbiking and vandalism. Head of the joint community safety department, Steve Helps, said: “Engaging with young people in this way is one of the best ways of building lasting, positive relationships which have long term benefits for the communities we serve. “Anti-social behaviour can put a big strain on local communities, so having packages like this available to schools will help to educate and inspire young people to make the correct life choices.” The package will be offered to schools around South Yorkshire during the spring term as part of Operation Equinox, a joint police and fire initiative which aims to reduce anti-social behaviour during the spring and summer months. The joint community safety department brings together staff from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and South Yorkshire

Police to work together with the shared aim of keeping people safe. High-profile activities the teams currently undertake include home safety checks, crime prevention visits and youth engagement activities such as the award-winning Prince’s Trust Team Programme, which has helped to transform the lives of more than 250 young people in two years. The Policing and Crime Act 2017 placed a new statutory duty on all three emergency services to look at opportunities to work with one another better to improve efficiency and effectiveness. Any schools requiring further information about the package or to book a session, can contact one of the team’s neighbourhood fire community safety officers by e-mailing uk,, or

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.

This entitles the bearer to receive The Falklands War - There and Back Again at the discounted price of £15.99 in the Barnsley Chronicle Bookshop only.

Top treat for garden lovers THOUSANDS of visitors are set to flock to Cawthorne for a horticultural treat. The picturesque village is hosting its popular open gardens weekend, which will also feature a string of other attractions. The biennial event is being staged for the 12th time during June with 19 tip-top gardens open from 11am to 5pm each day. Many are suitable for wheelchairs and dogs are welcome. Cawthorne parish councillor John Walker promises ‘something for everyone’. “The event will please gardeners young and old, new and experienced, and there will also be activities and competitions for children,” he said.

Live music will be played in some gardens with home-made refreshments available at several locations around the village. In the gardens themselves, visitors will find attractions as diverse as a model steam railway, an arboretum, streams, ponds and a show allotment. Ample free parking in the centre of the village will be signposted and visitors are urged to use this to ensure roads remain clear and access is quick and easy. A free minibus shuttle will run at regular intervals around the village, linking all the gardens and car park. Entry to all gardens for the weekend is by wristband at £6 per person on the day, but £5 in advance from any village shop. Children go free.

Prizes, donated by local companies, will be raffled – the draw being at 4pm on the Sunday on the village green. Coun Walker said “This is a wonderful event for the village as it involves so many parishioners, both old and new. There is a real buzz about the place over the weekend and we are proud to show off our beautiful village and its delightful gardens to such enthusiastic visitors.” Proceeds are in aid of much-needed repairs to All Saints Church and the Exodus Children’s charity in Barnsley. Many organisations in the village involved in the event will also benefit. The open gardens weekend is on June 22 and 23.

Police’s fresh approach to first-time offenders

NUMBERS of young people getting caught up in the justice system for the first time in South Yorkshire have been slashed by more than half in an attempt to prevent setting them on course for ‘a rubbish life’ with a criminal record. Three years ago, South Yorkshire had the worst record in the country for young people getting dealt with through the legal system for the first time, a process known to see one in four re-offend within 12 months and which has a negative impact on career chances, because even a caution counts as a criminal record, ruling out careers such as teaching and the armed forces. But work to find alternative ways of dealing with some offenders has sent the rate tumbling and the county now stands midway on the national league table. In Barnsley, for every 100,000 young people, there were 398 entering the criminal justice system. By September last year the figure had fallen to

263 in Barnsley – a drop of 34 per cent. However this rate of progress was less than that seen in Sheffield (38 per cent) Rotherham (63 per cent) and Doncaster (72 per cent). Success is South Yorkshire is being credited with the use of a triage system, to examine individual cases and identify those where alternatives to traditional punishment may be a more effective solution. Details of the scheme were put to South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, at a meeting of his Public Accountability Board, where he holds the police service to account. Chief Constable Stephen Watson told the meeting: “It is not going soft on youth crime. All the evidence is just overwhelmingly compelling that if you criminalise young people, their life chances take a real turn for the worse. “If you do the wrong thing at the wrong time you are almost guaranteed the child will go on to have a rubbish life.

“You have to balance that against the victim, but we are talking here about incidents where in times gone by, people would have taken a simple, pragmatic, view. “There are thousands of decent kids who, at some point in their life will nick something from a shop. Local restoration, have the child apologise, is a pragmatic way to deal with them.” Even a police caution remained on a criminal record for some professions, he said, adding: “You will never be a teacher or a lawyer, never get into the armed forces because you did what thousands of other kids do, and get caught. “You have to be sensible about it. You have some young people who have started to commit offences which are serious and have to be dealt with through the criminal justice system. It is sorting out the wheat from the chaff and being pragmatic. We are giving someone a chance. “If you look that gift horse in the mouth, the

fact you have been given that chance is reported to the courts and they will amplify the punishment because you have been given a chance.” Work is now being carried out in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam University to try to clarify the impact of the new system on re-offending rates, though the task is made more complex because of short period since the new arrangements were put in place. Confirming reliable figures is also more difficult, because those involved in alternative projects to divert them from future offending do not appear on the Police National Computer, making it more difficult to collate information. Police also insist there will be ‘one size fits all’ approach to how young offenders are dealt with, to help avoid calculating criminals from using children to offend on their behalf in the knowledge a first offence would not result in a criminal record.

Tractor run for Tiny Hearts SUNDAY drivers out for a run in the Penistone area would have got quite a surprise to see more than 150 tractors approaching. Strangers unaware of what was going on got caught up with the second Penistone Tractor Run as the vintage and veteran tractors proceeded on the main Sheffield-Halifax Road on their way to country lanes to take part in the charity event

in a field at Carr Lane Farm, Penistone. Following a circular tour through Hoylandswaine, Oxspring and Penistone, the convoy travelled back to the field for a barbecue and family afternoon. The event organised by farmer Sam Raynes and friends is expected to have raised more than £5,000 for Barnsley Hospital’s Tiny Hearts Appeal.

Benches are placed to remember the brave Barnsley Pals TWO memorial benches commemorating the Barnsley Pals have been installed at the site where the battalions set off to serve in the First World War. The 13th and 14th battalions of the York and Lancaster Regiment – known as the Barnsley Pals – marched out of Newhall training camp at Silkstone on May 13, 1915 before eventually being posted to Egypt and then Serre, in France. As the troops marched from the camp on Barnsley Road, Silkstone – now Silverwood Scout Camp – to board trains at Barnsley station, with the band playing, people lined the streets to wave them off. And the site has now been commemorated with two memorial benches, one installed by the Barnsley branch of the Yorkshire Regiment Association (YRA), and the other by the York and Lancaster Regiment. The YRA’s Barnsley branch, set up three years ago, aims to site up to four memorial benches a year at

areas of interest in the Barnsley area. Press officer and veteran Tony Simpson, 63, of Wilbrook Rise, Gawber, said: “We are a great team, with plenty of banter and many war stories. “With lots of other things ready in the pipeline to go we’d like, at least, a memorial bench at each one of the war memorials in and around Barnsley. “So if you are looking after a war memorial and would like one of our benches, please get in touch. “And if you are a veteran from all the three services come and join us and help us do good in our area.” The group has also organised visits to the Auschwitz concentration camp, France and Belgium. The YRA bench at Silverwood Scout Camp, made by fabricator Paul Waters, will be officially unveiled at a special ceremony at 10.30am on Sunday. Another bench will be sited at Cudworth Peace Garden on June 15.

Big jobs boost from business park plan A 12-ACRE business park in Dodworth could be extended to create two new warehouses and up to 650 jobs – although a bungalow on the site’s boundary will have to be demolished to make way for an access road. A planning statement relating to the scheme, at Capitol Park, shows proposals for a 105,000sq ft building and neighbouring 84,000sq ft premises at the northern end of the site. If approved, a road off Higham Lane – where the bungalow stands – will enable access to the site and on to Capitol Close. The site has already been earmarked for development under the council’s local plan, a blueprint for business and

housing expansion over the next 15 years, which was adopted in January. Although a total of 193 car parking spaces – including ten for electric vehicles and nine for disabled users – have been earmarked, the number could be reduced depending on the future occupants of the warehouses. The planning statement said: “This route has been carefully chosen to maximise the developable areas of each plot while reducing the length of hedgerow that will be removed to gain access to the northern plot. “The proposed development will support the extension and growth of an existing and successful business park, creating

a significant number of jobs both in construction and operational phases.” In March, the business park’s final empty building – a 15,000sq ft unit – was leased to Conrad Energy following the handover of a 75,000sq ft unit to the NHS for a bespoke blood facility. Chris Marshall, of CDP Marshall, the developer of Capitol Park, said: “Capitol Park, which is already established as one of the finest mixed-use business parks in South Yorkshire, is recognised as a prime location with occupiers having a very significant impact on the local economy, contributing to a very prosperous future for Barnsley.”

Loyal to the Legion A WOMAN who has been volunteering for the Royal British Legion for more than 25 years has been commended for her outstanding fundraising efforts. Claire Langley was presented with a certificate and a badge to commemorate all the effort she has put in over the years selling poppies. A celebration evening was held at the Smithy Arms pub in Oxspring where Claire, right, was awarded for her achievements. Claire began selling

poppies when she was 23 after visiting The Royal British Legion and found they were short of sellers so decided to help out – and she’s not looked back since. Robert Bladshaw, the Poppy Appeal organiser for Penistone and district said: “I dropped on Claire in a car park after selling poppies, we got talking and she said she had been selling them for 25 years. “I think it’s absolutely fantastic that she’s been selling poppies for so long.

“I just want to say a massive thank you to Claire from everyone at the Penistone Royal British Legion.”

GETTING CLOSER: Joanne Naylor with students from Barnsley College’s tourism department.

Joanne on course to reach Dream target A WOMAN whose daughter died of a rare form of cancer is just £500 away from getting the charity in memory of her little girl officially registered. Joanne Naylor set up Aalish’s Ride The Theme Dream charity after her daughter Aalish lost her battle with neuroblastoma – a cancer which affects the nerve tissue – in June last year at the age of eight. Aalish’s Ride The Theme Dream not only aims to keep the memory of the eight-year-old alive, but will offer children with the rare form of cancer and their families time away from the hospital to be able to enjoy theme parks. Joanne has held a variety of events to fundraise towards the charity’s registration and through the two latest fund-raising events held by students at Barnsley College, she is now just £500 from hitting her target of £5,000. The college held two events including an 80s night at the end of March and recently held a spring fair in Dodworth. The two events have helped Joanne now reach £4,500. Travel and tourism second year students from the college organised both events for the event planning part of their course, as their tutor Kerry Alexander knows the Naylor family and her daughter used to play with Aalish.

Speaking about getting involved with the college to fundraise for Aalish’s Ride The Theme Dream, Joanne said: “Once we are a charity and once we become registered, it opens up different avenues and we can do a lot more. “We can use more businesses, or something as simple as putting a fundraising pot on the counter or standing at the football ground with a bucket and stuff like that because that is something we can’t do without being registered. “Not only that but we can start helping our first family, which is something I can’t wait to do. “I can’t wait to put a smile on that child’s face because they go through hell and back – my daughter went through hell and back for the two and a half years that she battled this disease, but she never gave up and she continued to smile throughout it all. “She always had a smile on her face, even on her bad days. “So to see a child smiling when they are going through all that is priceless. “Aalish was a big lover of theme parks and we want to send a family to any UK theme park. “We want to work alongside Sheffield Children’s Hospital, because that’s where she was looked after, and we also want

to work alongside other hospitals too.” Kerry added: “I already know Joanne but part of our course this year for travel and tourism is event planning and the students decided to organise a spring fair as part of their course. “I encouraged them to do it as a fundraising event and we came up with the spring fair and I introduced them to Joanne. “She came to the college and spoke to everybody and they all really wanted to be able to help out.” The event was also just as successful for the students as well as it was for Joanne and the charity – with many students learning more about neuroblastoma and saying they were glad to help out a good cause. Travel and tourism student Charlotte Foy, 19, said: “We wanted to help raise money for Aalish’s charity because her mum came in and gave us some information about her and we just wanted to help her family and other families by raising money.” n For more information or to contact Joanne, search ‘Aalish’s Ride The Theme Dream’ on Facebook or donate to the Just Giving page, crowdfunding/joanne-naylor.

Spanish success FOOTBALLERS from Barnsley College’s sports academy won four trophies at an international tournament in Spain. A party of 44 students made the annual trip to Barcelona for the Copa Maresme Cup. The male first team finished as runners-up after losing out to a strong German side in the final, whilst the female team claimed the third-place trophy. The male first team knocked out the male second team on their way to the final. There were also individual honours for students as Amy Woodruff and Billy Goose

finished as the tournament’s top scorers in their age groups. Student Luke Swaby, 18, said: “The atmosphere in all the games was amazing. “The feeling when our team scored the winning goal in the last 16 of the tournament was immense, I’ve never felt anything like it. “To have the opportunity to play in such a large-scale tournament is rare, so many memories were taken away from the trip and will never be forgotten.” Performance and athlete development co-ordinator Luke Forgione added: “Success can be measured by

trophies, but the experience and development the students gained from the trip is the major thing. “The trip will hopefully be a lasting memory for those students leaving us this year and they will look back on their time at the college fondly. “For those who are returning, we hope they will be keen to register for the 2020 tournament.” To find out more about opportunities in Barnsley College’s sports academy, contact Luke Forgione by emailing l.forgione@, visit or call 216387.

Samaritans trekker arrives in town A SAMARITAN walked more than 100 miles to complete a shift at the charity’s Barnsley branch. Volunteer David Matthews is currently undertaking a 6,000mile challenge to work a shift at every Samaritans branch in the UK and Ireland. And he headed to Barnsley, where he was greeted by mayor Coun Steve Green, as he approached the 150-mile mark on this leg of the challenge. “The volunteers properly looked after me,” said David, 58. “One person gave me a leg massage,

which was brilliant. They took me to the pub for a lovely meal, and I stayed at a volunteer’s house. It made a difference from eating out of a tin and putting my tent up.” David set off on the ‘listening walk’, which he hopes will raise awareness of Samaritans and the vital service it offers, from the Doncaster branch at which he began volunteering ten years ago. After working a shift at Barnsley, responding to calls, emails and texts, David moved on to Harrogate.

David, who lives in the Knoydart peninsula in Scotland, said people he’d met along the way had been very friendly. “Everyone shakes your hand and has a bit of a chat, and it encourages you.” David, who grew up in Maltby, is aiming to raise £100,000 in sponsorship, and to recruit 1,000 new Samaritans volunteers along the way. The schedule for the walk and details on how to donate can be found at can be found at www.thelisteningwalk.

This was the WAB week...

With the Tour and promotion, it’s a special sporting time IT was wonderful to see that you didn’t let the rain stop you all coming to watch Tour de Yorkshire. On Thursday I was driving through Royston and Mapplewell, and to see how much effort the villages put into decorating the route was admirable. It’s always great to see Barnsley on TV. Events such as Tour de Yorkshire show our town in a positive light

and it’s even better when people can see how wonderful Barnsley looks. And how amazing is it to see that Barnsley FC have been promoted! The Reds have worked so hard this season and it’s fantastic to see how all that effort has paid off. I’m really looking forward to the parade tomorrow. I will have the camera out, so make sure

you’ve got big smiles and paint the tarn red. We deserve this. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful bank holiday weeend too. It doesn’t seem two minutes since we were enjoying the Easter break and it’s going to be strange next week having a full Monday to Friday stretch – hopefully it doesn’t drag!

A week in WAB history... n HE’S GOT TALENT: Felix Yates, from Worsbrough Bridge.

Barnsley MP Dan becomes Put some Jamm on a South Yorkshire Mayor – great evening out and won’t take a salary WAB history takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back what hit the headlines last year... May 4 Dan Jarvis elected Mayor of South Yorkshire BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis has been elected the first Mayor of South Yorkshire. Dan Jarvis – who has vowed to do the job without Mayoral salary while remaining an MP – failed to achieve 50 per cent of the overall vote. That meant a second count was required looking at people’s ‘second preference votes’. May 10 Town Centre shops evacuated FIVE stores on Queen Street in the town centre had to be evacuated after the fire alarm was set off. Staff and customers from TUI, Holland and Barrett, Costa Coffee, Specsavers and Barclays Bank were evacuated just after 3pm after the alarm went off. Firefighters were sent to the scene as a precaution to ensure that none of the blocks were in danger. A PCSO said: “We evacuated

everyone as a precaution. It’s better to be safe than sorry.” All buildings were clear and staff and the public were allowed back into their stores at 3.25pm. May 11 WW2 Shell found in Barnsley Canal POLICE have cordoned off Old Mill Lane and Wakefield Road following the discovery of a World War II shell. Police were called to the scene at 9:45am following a report of the sighting in the canal next to ASDA. The police search team have removed the shell from the canal. Photographs have been taken and sent to the Explosive ordnance disposal unit (bomb squad) who will examine the images and decide if they need to be dispatched to secure the shell. The roads are expected to remain closed in both directions for some time and drivers are advised to avoid the area if possible.

Loss can’t take shine off fine campaign PROMOTED Barnsley missed out on the League One title after finishing their excellent season with a 2-1 loss at Bristol Rovers on Saturday evening. Kieffer Moore put the visitors in front, but then Liam Lindsay was sent off in the first half. And the hosts, who were on top for large spells, netted an equaliser on 71 minutes before winning it in injury time. Luton Town won at home to Oxford United so took the title, with the Reds claiming the second automatic promotion place having made sure of a return to the Championship earlier in the week. Head coach Daniel Stendel said: “I thought before that it wouldn’t be easy to play our best game after Tuesday. We started well and took the lead but, after the red card, it was very difficult. Some decisions were not in our direction but it doesn’t matter. “We’re promoted, which was our big goal. Congratulations to Luton for winning the title. They deserved it in the end. We will see them next season in the Championship. “After a long and hard season, we have the success we deserved. I am very proud of my team, my club and all the supporters that we achieved our goal. It’s a great feeling.” Stendel made one change from the side that beat Blackpool in the last home game, with the injured Jacob Brown being replaced by Moore while Dimitri Cavare returned to the squad. The hosts should have taken the lead but Alex Jakubiak fired wide when unmarked ten yards out after meeting a left-wing cross. The visitors took the lead in the 12th minute when Mamadou Thiam met a right-wing cross at the back post. His header was kept out by goalkeeper Adam Smith, who also blocked the next effort by Moore, but it had crossed the line. Liam Sercombe and Ollie Clarke both fired wide of the bottom left corner from the edge of the box then, at the other end, Smith pushed away a powerful shot from Moore from 20 yards. Tony Craig deflected another Sercombe shot just wide. Lindsay then picked up two bookings in quick succession for clear fouls as Rovers attempted to break into the Barnsley half and was sent off just before the break. From the resulting free-kick, Alex Rodman headed wide, but Barnsley went in at half-time 1-0 ahead. Stendel brought Cavare and Zeki Fryers on at half-time for Thiam and Moore as he changed to a back three of Cavare, Ethan Pinnock and Dani Pinillos. Jordan Williams and Fryers were the wing-backs with Mike Bahre behind Cauley Woodrow up front. Davies made a tremendous double save just before the hourmark, denying substitute Gavin Reilly, who had been put clean through on goal, then brilliantly stopping the rebound from Jakubiak.

Pictures: Keith Turner.

Sercombe then headed over a right-wing cross at the back post. The equaliser eventually came when Rodman was denied by another Davies save but the ball was passed back to him and his second effort, from eight yards out, went in via a deflection off Alex Mowatt and off the crossbar. The match was a lot more even at 1-1 and Woodrow almost won it in the final minutes as he twice fired narrowly over from just outside the box. But it was the hosts who won it in injury-time when a cross from the left fell to Rodman and he fired through Davies’ legs from six yards out. Stendel and his players celebrated after the game with the 1,145 Barnsley fans. He said: “It was special and the top moment of the season for us. We have big support in every game. It was a long way to come today, especially as we were promoted before. It is a big part of our club that we have so many good supporters.” Barnsley (4-4-2): Davies; J Williams, Pinnock, Lindsay, Pinillos; Bahre (Green 78mins), Mowatt, McGeehan, Thiam (Cavare HT); Moore (Fryers HT), Woodrow. Unused: Walton, Hedges, Jackson, Styles. Yellow cards: Lindsay, McGeehan. Red cards: Lindsay. Goals: Moore 12.
