Uniforms are recycled thanks to new scheme WHEN a Barnsley woman saw her kids were growing out of their school uniforms at an alarming rate, she came to a novel conclusion on how to solve the issue while also helping other families in the same boat. With two young sons, Shelly Lowe knows how expensive school uniform can be and how much space the bags of almost immaculate uniform can take up in the house, once the kids come back from the summer holidays to find their trousers now barely go past their shins and their shirts have got a little too tight around the collar. And so Shelly, who works for Barnsley Council’s Families Information Service, realised she and other parents in the same position could move on the now-unwearable clothing to people in need. “I had a rant about it at work, because we get people phoning up asking how to get grants for uniform and it became obvious some people can’t afford it while others throw it away,” said Shelly, 41, of College Fields, Wilthorpe. “I can’t believe the amount of people saying their uniform usually

goes in the bin. I had some that was immaculate but just sat in bags, so I just wondered if anyone needed it.” Shelly realised that the only service currently offered by the council catered specifically to refugee families, but there was nothing for children in Barnsley who may otherwise not be on the radar of the Families Information Service. So she used her connections through work to set up ‘Shelly’s School Shop’, placing drop-off points at New Lodge, Grimethorpe, Athersley, Darfield, Lundwood, and Kendray and Worsbrough Family Centres. “Through work I’ve got those connections already, because we’re all part of the one team,” she said. “Some schools have got on-board and more than 6,000 people have looked at it on Facebook.” Shelly will set up a pop-up shop at the Alhambra Centre today, when collected uniform will be handed out to parents in need, but she says donations at the drop-off points will continue after this. NEW LEASE OF LIFE: Shelly Lowe has come up with a scheme to re-use Search ‘Shelly’s School Shop’ on school uniforms which are no longer required by original owners. Facebook for more information.

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a robbery and attempted robbery took place in the space of 30 minutes. At 4.15pm on Saturday, August 3, police were called to Thurgoland Post Office, Roper Lane, to reports of an attempted robbery. Two men wearing balaclavas are reported to have entered the store, with one climbing over the counter to try to open the till. They fled empty-handed in a silver Peugeot when they were disturbed by the post office staff. At 4.40pm, officers responded to a report of two men wearing balaclavas entering the McColl’s on High Street, Worsbrough, and threatening staff with a knife. The suspects made off with a quantity of cash from the tills and fled the scene in a silver Peugeot. Staff at both premises were left shaken but uninjured. A 39-year-old man from Sheffield was arrested on suspicion of robbery and released under investigation. A police spokesman said: “Police are treating the two incidents as linked. Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 689 of August 3.”

Woman’s addiction drove her to steal A ‘TRUSTED’ woman developed a compulsion to gamble which led her to steal scratch cards worth more than £1,000 from her employer. Denise Harrod, of Barnabas Walk, Honeywell, was found guilty of theft at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Monday and returned a day later where she was given a community order consisting of 100 hours of unpaid work. The 54-year-old had appeared at this same court in May charged with theft – where she pleaded not guilty – as she attributed her actions to the medication that she was taking to treat restless leg syndrome. Harrod was dismissed from her job at Budgens on Barnsley Road, Dodworth, after she was caught on CCTV taking scratch cards from the dispenser on numerous occasions over a fourweek period. District Judge Joanne Harris was told that when she was called into a meeting with the director of Ford News Limited, which operates the branch and store manager Andrew

Thompson, Harrod admitted to taking the scratch cards for up to 18 months prior to being caught on camera. She would dispose of the cards by putting them in her pocket, her bag or by throwing them in the bin. She had worked for Ford News for seven years and was dismissed immediately. In a statement read out in court, director Ron Ford described Harrod was a ‘trusted member of staff’ and the scratch cards she had taken cost the company £1,227. When she was arrested, her house was searched and several cash deposit receipts were found in a draw in her bedroom. Harrod’s solicitor, Chris Peace, argued that a side effect of the drug she was taking for her restless leg syndrome – pramipexole – had an unusual side effect which causes ‘strong urges’ to gamble. According to the British National Formulary (BNF), pramipexole can cause an impulse control disorder, including pathological

gambling, binge eating and hypersexuality. In addition to stealing the scratch cards, Harrod was also betting on the Irish lottery, hiding her spiralling finances from her partner, which resulted in her stealing more cards. District Judge Hirst said: “These are very unusual circumstances and your actions have been deemed completely out of character. I am satisfied that it did not force you to be dishonest. “Stealing from an employer is a big breach of trust and your actions to be dishonest was with intent. You covered your tracks and didn’t care because you thought you were getting away with it. “However I understand that this is against your character and your actions were sudden although over a long period of time.” Harrod was also told to pay £500 compensation to her former employer.

A BARNSLEY dancer and director who has travelled the globe will perform at the Edinburgh Fringe with his latest show. For Only An Hour is a one-man piece of dance theatre which aims to highlight the need for more visibility of LGBTQ+ art. The show, by Kexborough-born Phil Sanger, sets out a manifesto through dance, spoken word and songs by Angela Lansbury, Delia Smith and Bette Midler. The idea came from Phil’s ‘frustrations at feeling helpless in the face of the torturing of the LGBT community in Chechnya and around the world’, and hopes to air these to a wider audience. Phil worked with a life coach to use life coaching principles to explore the politics of those issues and of pop culture, queer art and life-changing gender reassignment surgery, and create a work that is ‘both defiant and celebratory’. Phil, who has worked internationally for more than 20 years – including with the man considered the father of modern dance Robert Cohan – got his start in dance when he was introduced to it in his second year at Darton High School.

Exclusions on the rise EXCLUSION rates for bullying in Barnsley schools have rocketed by 18 per cent in a year, according to a damning new report. Data gathered from the Department for Education’s statistics revealed Yorkshire and the Humber was the only region in the country where exclusions rose in 2017/18. Although a marked rise, Barnsley’s 18 per cent increase – which saw 20 youngsters being excluded for bullying – was dwarfed by neighbouring Wakefield Council’s 83 per cent hike. Barnsley’s figures work out as one bullying exclusion per 1,699 students in the 2017/18 school year – in 2016/17 there was one such exclusion per 1,969 students. Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock said: “No child should be forced to endure bullying at school, which can have devastating consequences on both

their health and educational attainment. “Schools should take appropriate action against bullying, and exclusions should be reserved as a last resort where other alternatives have been exhausted.” The hike comes after the Chronicle revealed last month that the town’s schools have had to endure funding cuts totalling £16.7m since 2010, equivalent to £214 per pupil. The bullying-related exclusion figures were revealed by Oxford Home Schooling, an organisation which provides GCSE and A-level courses across the country. Dr Nick Smith, principal at Oxford Home Schooling, said: “It is encouraging to see that in many areas the numbers of exclusions for bullying are decreasing. “While this doesn’t necessarily mean that bullying is becoming less of an issue, it

might suggest that schools are taking measures to deal with the problem, rather than just removing the children involved. “Bullying is an unfortunate and harmful part of school life for many children across England. “However, our latest research has revealed that it is a far greater problem in some regions than others. “Across the country, the number of exclusions for bullying dropped by 5.6 per cent between the 2011/12 and 2016/17 academic years, but figures varied significantly across local authorities.” According to the government, the number of teaching assistants in secondary schools across Barnsley has fallen from 287 in 2011 to 202 in 2017/18, a fall of nearly 30 per cent. Other support staff have fallen from 273 to 207 in the same period, a reduction of

Safeguarding art collection A FUNDRAISING auction took place at The Cooper Gallery to raise money towards preserving their art collection. Almost 50 pieces of artwork, including paintings, sketches, sculptures, woodwork and jewellery, all donated by local artists, were auctioned off. The evening was organised by The Cooper Trustees and was hosted by the Bard of Barnsley Ian McMillan and Pierre Maciag, from Wilby’s Estate Agents. Dean Ormston, a world-renowned comic book illustrator, whose work is currently in the gallery as part of their latest exhibition, KAPOW, sold an original artwork at the event. The evening raised more than £4,500 which will allow for two paintings to be restored.

more than 24 per cent. Combined, this means that staff other than frontline teachers in Barnsley’s secondary schools have reduced by over a quarter since 2011, while funding for in-school police officers was also axed last year. One officer, PC Clair Mount, divided her time between two of Barnsley’s main high schools – Outwood Academy in Shafton and its sister school in Carlton – as part of the Safer School Partnership (SSP), which was introduced in high schools by the Police Foundation following the 1995 murder of London headteacher Philip Lawrence. Coun Margaret Bruff, cabinet spokesperson for children’s services, said: “We expect all of our schools in Barnsley to take bullying seriously and use sanctions to combat these issues where appropriate, using their anti-bullying strategy and their exclusion policy.”

Dream day for devoted couple A MONK BRETTON couple who won a money-can’t-buy wedding tied the knot during last weekend’s Pride event in Leeds. Ryan Clay, 35, and Ben Bagshaw, 34, entered a competition which was run by Victoria Leeds, a shopping arcade in the city, and resulted in the couple receiving an all-expenses-paid ceremony on Sunday. Their prize included a threecourse meal for 20 guests at The Ivy, a champagne reception at Harvey Nichols, designer suits and shoes, pre-wedding facials,

rings, an after party at Victoria Gate Casino and transport provided by Rolls-Royce. The wedding took place under a rainbow-coloured floral archway and was conducted by TV host and equal rights advocate, Anna Richardson. With a navy and burgundy theme throughout and a string quartet playing, the happy couple – who have been together for 14 years – were pronounced husband and husband. Ryan, who entered the competition, said: “We were engaged

MP is put through her paces at camp MP STEPHANIE Peacock has been put through her paces at a British Army training camp. Following Parliament’s summer recess, the Barnsley East MP spent a few days working alongside the army at the British Forces’ Cyprus base as part of her membership in the Armed Forces Parliament Scheme. The MP took part in several weapons training exercises and met with UN delegations to gain a greater understanding of the UK’s role as part of international security efforts. Aside from the physical rigours of the visit, she also met Darfield’s Corporal Robert Lee, serving as an engineer with the RAF. She said: “The visit was a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand how our forces operate abroad and how they maintain the high standards they are known for around the world. “It was a real bonus to meet my constituent, Robert, who grew up on the same street that I live on in Darfield. Our whole community can be proud of him and others that dedicate their lives to keeping us safe. I’ll continue my support for our incredible forces in the future.”

for almost 13 years but various things have happened in our lives since that and have put a wedding on the back-burner. “I think Ben thought that I had completely forgotten about or I was not interested in a wedding as we have now been together so long, but it’s actually the opposite. “It was amazing to surprise him with a wedding to finally commit to our love after all these years and look forward to our futures as best friends, soulmates and husbands.”

Village now has ‘focal point’ A CHURCH in Athersley will be holding a weekend of celebrations to mark a new cross that will be placed in the village.

Priest at St Helen’s Church on Laithes Lane, Father Peter Needham, is on a mission to improve the venue and wanted a dedicated memorial space for the village. “It’s not a war memorial but a place where people can go to reflect and remember,” he said. ““I want a focal point for the people of Athersley outside the church where we can lay poppies on Remembrance Day and where mothers can go to remember their children. “I want it to be a space of remembrance for all people, not just for soldiers.” Father Needham has organised for a cross to be placed outside the church which sits on the main road. “The memorial will be a Calvary cross but made out of wood,” he said. ““The reason being is that Athersley was a famous woodland before the war and the cross is to represent St Helen who discovered the crucifix of Jesus.” Next week, the church will host a

series of events in the run-up to the cross’s unveiling. On August 15, the solemnity of the assumption of our lady with solemn mass will take place at 7pm with the blessing of the new memorial garden. Then on August 16 there will be a summer quiz where teams of five can enter to be in with a chance of winning a cash prize. Finally on August 18, the dedication of the cross will take place where the memorial will be unveiled. However, Father Needham has run into a problem as he needs to move the cross from his garden to the memorial site and has called on locals to offer a helping hand. “I think it would be interesting to get people to carry the cross to the metal plinth it will be on,” said Father Needham. “We need about 20 or so strong people who are willing to help lift a wooden cross that weighs over a tonne. I think it will be good at bringing the community together.” To volunteer to help carry the cross, or for more information, email Father Needham on needham278@ aol.com.

THIS YEAR’S Underneath The Stars music and arts festival was the biggest ever. More than 4,000 people attended the sold-out Cawthorne event across three days last weekend meaning it was the most attended in the festival’s six-year history. The festival was headlined by local folk artist Kate Rusby (below), The Proclaimers and Billy Bragg whilst smaller musicians and performing artists also played and Gavin and Stacey actress Ruth Jones was interviewed. Festival director Emma Holling said: “We would like to say a massive

thank you to everyone who contributed to the overwhelming success of our sixth Underneath the Stars festival. “It has been wonderful to welcome friends old and new to our little corner of Yorkshire and despite the unpredictable British weather, the feedback has been simply remarkable.” The not for profit event also supported Yorkshire Cancer Research with revellers donating to the charity. Next year’s event has already been scheduled for July 31 to August 2.

A week in WAB history

Harley is a winner

Another golden moment for Ed WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, it’s August 2012... August 8 Breast-feeding Record Smashed Thanks To Barnsley Help SCORES of Barnsley mums helped smash a world record for the most women breast-feeding at the same time. More than 3,000 women nationally took part in the Big Latch On event – and 21 mums from Barnsley helped out at The Core. The event was organised by Barnsley Breast-feeding Link Workers, who are funded by NHS Barnsley to support breast-feeding mums across Barnsley. A spokesman said: “This event is held to develop the support of local communities for families. I know many friendships were formed this morning and all those who were involved had lots of fun. It is really important that we continue to make breast-feeding in public a normal and supported part of having a child.” August 8 Worsbrough Mill Launches Local Loaf A LOCAL loaf made with local flour and beer is being created at Worsbrough. Unbleached white flour milled at Worsbrough and a stout from Two Roses microbrewery at Darton is being used by bakers at Rob Royd Farm Shop in Worsbrough for the new Barnsley Loaf. Terry Lee, miller at Worsbrough Mill, said: “This is a product we have been longing to create for Barnsley. Over the past years we have had many different types of wheat coming through the mill but none have really given us the quality we have been looking for.” Worsbrough Mill is a 17th century water-powered corn mill

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

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

August 23 Golden Phone Box For Barnsley’s Ed Clancy BARNSLEY’S Olympic champion Ed Clancy has been honoured in his home town with a gold phone box (pictured above). The 27-year-old cyclist won gold in the men’s team pursuit at London 2012, but Barnsley was told it would not be getting a gold post box to recognise the success because that honour had gone to Huddersfield, where Ed grew up. Parish councillors in Ingbirchworth stepped in to give Ed, who also won bronze in the omnium, a gold phone box in the village where he was born. Keith Batley said: “Ed was born here, just a few doors up from the phone box. “We put some flags in it and stuck a newspaper cutting onto the window to explain to people what it’s about.” Former Springvale Primary School pupil Ed’s father still lives there. Tony added: “I said we ought to be painting the post box but that isn’t ours. The phone box is though, and it looks lovely.”

August 31 Historic Fire Engine Returns To Barnsley AN HISTORIC fire engine which is more than 200 years old is returning to Barnsley. A guard of honour from South Yorkshire Fire Brigade is expected to welcome home the 221-year-old Joseph Bramah pump, one of Barnsley’s most historic treasures. Bramah, born in 1749 in Stainborough, was one of Britain’s most important inventors and the father of hydraulic power. The pump being brought back to Barnsley town hall is believed to be the only one made by him still in existence in this country. His pump, the first continuous-pressure fire engine, proved very successful and was put into use across Europe. It will be displayed in the new Experience Barnsley museum in the town hall which is due to open in May. John Tanner, project manager for Experience Barnsley, said: ‘’The pump is the precursor to almost all modern fire-fighting appliances. “We think it is a fascinating story for us to tell.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, August 13, 2019 –

This was the WAB week...

It was great to interview Bolshoi graduate Tala – and find that her accent remains as strong as ever HAVE you all got your dancing shoes on this week? Dancing Town kicked off on Friday – and from what I’ve seen online, a lot of you went down and enjoyed yourself. There are plenty of activities taking place throughout the week and there’s a show on Wednesday (August 14) in which dance schools from across the borough will perform. It will also include special guests. One person who will be attending is the lovely Tala LeeTurton. If you don’t know who she is, then you’ve been living under a rock, but she’s a ballerina and she’s the only Barnsley lass to get into, and graduate from, the world-famous Bolshoi Academy in Moscow.

I had the amazing opportunity to interview her (pick up the Barnsley Chronicle to see what she had to say) and she even posed for a selfie with me! It’s wonderful to meet people who don’t forget their roots when they become successful. And even though Tala is fluent in Russian, she’s still retained her Barnsley accent! Keep up with her on Instagram by following @talaleeturton. Proud of Barnsley is well underway and the nominations are coming through. If you have someone you would like to nominate who is a hospital hero, children’s champion, volunteer of the year or has achieved something exceptional, put them forward. There are several other categories and it’s always

wonderful for people to gain recognition or the work they do. It’s not often that people realise just how much a difference they are making to others and it’s through awards like this that you can let them see how brilliant they truly are. If you’ve not nominated that special person or group, get a copy of the Chronicle, which every week has a page devoted to the Proud of Barnsley awards, or go onto the Chronicle website and fill out the form. We’ll do the rest. Have you tried the new McDonald’s spicy chicken nuggets yet? We were kindly sent some to try, and all I’ll say is if you’re after a kick, have some hot sauce. But you can decide for yourself, obviously... GREAT TO MEET YOU: Altine, right, and Tala Lee-Turton, the Bolshoi Ballet Academy graduate from Barnsley. ’Ave a good week. Altine

Derby disappointment for Barnsley BARNSLEY head coach Daniel Stendel had no complaints as his side suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat in their Championship derby at Sheffield Wednesday. He is looking for a quick response in the Tuesday-night Carabao Cup first-round clash with Carlisle United at Oakwell. Jacob Murphy, who joined Wednesday on loan from Newcastle United last Thursday, calmly slotted home the first goal in less than two minutes. He was also involved in the second on 60 minutes after finding Kieran Lee, who then passed to Steven Fletcher to fire home from the edge of the box. Barnsley’s best chance came when substitute Mamadou Thiam’s effort was cleared off the line by Julian Borner in the 68th minute. Stendel, whose side beat Fulham in their opening game the previous week, said: “Wednesday were better than us and deserved to win this game but we can play so much better. “They played well and we didn’t have the chances that we wanted. “It was a big punch so early on to come back from. “We tried to play but after one minute we are 1-0 down and it’s not so easy for our young team. We don’t have a lot of experience in the Championship so we need to learn from this game.” Carlisle head to Oakwell after going down 3-2 at Swindon Town in their League Two clash on Saturday.

Street food is star attraction as festival proves popular THE Word on the Street festival took place at The Crown and Anchor pub, where guests could enjoy a rare day of sunshine, eat good food and relax. The atmosphere was comfortable; people were sitting in the deck chairs provided, sipping at a drink from one of the two outdoor bars and enjoying the sunshine. Assistant manager, Lauren Mason, said: “The idea for this event came about last year. We wanted to put on something that was a bit different but still kept the family element we are known for at the pub. “I don’t think you would see this sort of thing in Barnsley, I think it’s more of a Leeds or Sheffield sort of event which is why it’s been so popular.

n A pub in Barugh Green held a festival for guests to enjoy street food and drinks in the beer garden. The festival is the second of its kind held at the pub and we sent reporter Charlotte Hutton along to sample some food... “We wanted a welcoming atmosphere that everyone could enjoy.” There was plenty of food on offer; Jambalaya (a dish similar to Paella but originating from Louisiana, USA and without prawns), slow-roast lamb, hotdogs, burgers and grilled halloumi, which was all made by the chefs at the pub. “The food was made fresh this morning,” said Lauren. “Except from the lamb which was marinated for 24 hours before cooking. “Our chefs made all the food and we wanted to showcase what they could do. “We are also really proud because all the staff here

today work at The Crown and Anchor, we have not got in any outside companies to help set up or provide food. It was all done by us which I think we are all proud of.” There were two bars outside which sold beer on tap as well as a collection of gins an cold drinks. “We had a shipping container bar selling gin and beer on tap so that guests didn’t have to keep going back inside and were able to enjoy the weather,” added Lauren. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxed and the staff at the pub created an event for people of all ages to enjoy.

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 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.

WITH 1 DAY TO GO:

   

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.
