Nicci shows heart after redundancy
3 Warning call after spate of nuisance fires
YOUNGSTERS have started a number of grass and rubbish fires – prompting a warning from emergency crews. A spokesman at Cudworth Fire Station, on Tumbling Lane, said there had been a spate of incidents over recent weeks. Incidents have been recorded on Snydale Road and Lunn Lane in Cudworth, Pontefract Lane in Lundwood and Monk Bretton woods. He added: “They don’t realise what they’re doing. We’re taking resources away to deal with things like that when we may be needed for something more serious.” There had also recently been a number of wheelie bins set on fire at the pit stack in Carlton, which take up to an hour to put out.
BY LYNSEY BRADFORD AN UNRULY student is following in the footsteps of Billy Casper from the film Kes – by forging a relationship with birds of prey. Carlton Community College pupil Ben Brettoner, 15, of Ollerton Road, Athersley North, is taking part in the eight-week course, The Kes Project, to get back on the straight and narrow after being involved in anti-social behaviour. Ben, who is subject to a anti-social behaviour order, said: “I was messing about in school and it spilled over to outside school.” The scenario is similar to that of the film, produced in Barnsley and based on the novel by Barry Hines, in which Billy Casper hand-rears the kestrel. Before Carlton Community College was formed, Ben had been a pupil at Edward Sheerien, where parts of the film were shot. Ben said he became interested in birds of prey through his brother, who keeps a Harris Hawk.

He added: “I’m really enjoying the course. “My favourite bird is a Harris Hawk and my favourite part is flying the birds and I don’t get scared about them not coming back. “My behaviour has improved now I’ve found something I’m interested in and I’m happier.” Ben is studying for GCSEs in maths and English. After he has completed the course, from which he will receive the Lantra Award, Ben is hoping to get a job in the world of falconry. Berneslai Homes officer Chris Corker thought of the idea, as he keeps and shows birds of prey. He said: “I called it the Kes Project because the idea came to me at the school where Kes was filmed. I thought it would be appropriate to call it that as we had a young lad from the Barnsley area dealing with birds of prey.” Chris set up the course with SMJ Falconry which is based in Bradford but funded by Carlton Community College.

It has been fitted around Ben’s schoolwork and he has been set guidelines on his behaviour at home as well as on the course and at school. He said it was great to see Ben channelling his energies into something he loves and said there had been no complaints about his behaviour.
Carlton Community College and Berneslai Homes believe supporting students in areas outside the school curriculum will broaden their horizons and give them a better appreciation of the environment they live in and show that hard work and good behaviour can get rewards.

GROUP IN A LATHER BY IAN HARLEY LEADERS of Barnsley’s longest-established theatre group have got themselves in a lather through a fruitless search for a hip bath for their next production. Trinity Players’ props manager, John Ryall, and codirector, Bob Willerton, spent so long searching for the prop for the Duncan Greenwood comedy ‘Strike Happy’, that they lowered their sights to a tin bath. But they then experienced similar difficulty in finding an item which, until recent years, could be seen hanging on the outside walls of Barnsley homes in their thousands. “Everyone seems to think they have seen a tin bath but when it comes down to it, we find they have been taken to the dumpit site, holed and used for flowers, or for mixing plaster,” said Bob. Showing at the Lamproom Theatre from April 27 to April 30, Strike Happy is a northern comedy set in the
home of union member Albert Hellewell circa 1960. Albert and his prospective son-in-law, a shop steward at the same factory, are on strike when their partners decide to give them some of their own medicine by going on strike themselves. Anyone who has a tin bath should call Bob on 288599.

Pettinger and Mark Potts made it through the qualifying round at the North Regional Final of the Matchplay Championships. Thousands of golfers from across the UK entered the competition but only 36 will go to Dubai. The pair will enjoy seven nights in the emirate and compete in front of the Sky Sports cameras. “This is amazing,” said Potts, a ten handicapper. “The competition was always going to be stiff as everyone had won five matches to get to that stage. “We’re looking forward to getting to Dubai with the opportunity to bring
the Matchplay Championship back to Barnsley.” Meanwhile, Wath-uponDearne’s club captain Allan Marriott won the Captain’s Drive-In – its first event of the year. Members cannot remember another captain winning this competition in the club’s 106-year history. Marriott began with a superb drive of 242 yards in windy conditions then went round in a winning net total of 66 strokes. Anyone interested in joining the club can contact the secretary, Malcolm Godfrey on 01709 878609 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
