Big clean-up after deluge BARNSLEY Council has thanked residents in the town for pulling together in recent days after the most severe flooding for more than a decade struck. Areas across the borough – spanning from Darton to Wombwell – were put on alert following Thursday’s torrential rain, which resulted in the Dearne and Dove bursting their banks. At its peak, more than a dozen roads were closed, while railway lines to Sheffield and Huddersfield were hit as a result of the deluge, which saw a month’s rain batter the town during a 24-hour period. Rivers were at more than double their usual levels on Friday morning, with the Dearne at Darton at 2.2 metres, the Dearne at Darfield at 3.6m and the Dove at Worsbrough at 1.79m. A council spokesman said: “We want to say a huge thank you to all of our residents who have pulled together by helping their neighbours during this difficult time. This showcases the incredible community spirit we have in Barnsley.

“We have been working with Berneslai Homes to provide support to residents in affected properties throughout Low Valley and Burton Grange through on-site visits, and our staff are helping the process of clearing and cleaning properties. “Our teams are working across the borough, repairing roads and removing floodboards and signs from reopened roads. We’re also supporting the residents and businesses in areas that were flooded. “Please avoid driving through flood water or any temporary road closures for your own safety.” Two roads remained closed yesterday – Sheffield Road in Oxspring and New Road in Pilley – and five routes in Cawthorne, Crane Moor, Elsecar, Stainborough and Thurgoland were being monitored. Many residents had to leave their homes while the water subsided – leading to looting fears – but South Yorkshire Police confirmed extra officers had been drafted in to patrol worsthit spots.

INBRIEF... Pizza restaurant closes its doors PIZZA Hut has closed its Barnsley branch on the Peel Retail Park, leaving it without an eatery after an application for a drive-through Starbucks was rejected in June. A spokesman for the pizza chain said: “We continually evaluate the location of our restaurants to ensure they are in the best possible areas to meet consumer demand and have decided to close our restaurant unit on Harborough Hill Road.” The application for the Starbucks – rejected on the grounds that the development comprised a ‘town centre use... in an out of centre location’ – is currently under appeal.

“These plans have been put to good use. “At this time we are not aware of any injuries relating to the floods. A number of residents chose to leave their premises for their own safety and our partners

including local authorities and the fire service have supported them to do so. “We’d like to thank all of our partners, their staff and our officers who have been out supporting local people.”

The event is aimed at male carers, with a number of information stalls giving advice on not only the caring role, but also how carers can look after their own health and well-being.

Walkout planned as rent row continues A WALKOUT is planned by market traders in Barnsley to support their campaign for a rent reduction across the board after the council slashed charges for those with stalls upstairs but left rent unchanged on the ground floor. Traders are planning a protest around the Cheapside entrance to the new market hall on Thursday between 2pm and 3pm, in a bid to draw attention to the situation and gain public support. The market was moved to its new home in the Glass Works shopping centre around a year ago and there has been tension between traders and Barnsley Council since then, with some reporting difficult trading conditions, though the council insists the market is thriving with strong footfall. Early in the autumn the council announced rents upstairs would be halved, with an invitation to ground floor traders to relocate, if they wished. Traders responded with a protest, arguing that reduced rent was needed for all involved. But that argument has been rejected by the council. As a result, they are continuing their campaign, with Thursday’s

‘walkout’ as the next step. A notice issued to businesses in the complex by the protest group clarifies that they are not looking to reduce the discount upstairs, rather to bring all stalls into line with what those traders have been offered. Traders are being urged to spare staff where possible to join the hour-long demonstration. Spokesman for the Barnsley branch of the National Market Traders Federation, Kieron Knight, said: “I think we will see some traders pushed into bankruptcy because of accumulating debts. You cannot stand by and watch that happen without doing your very best to prevent it.” Figures released by Barnsley Council at the end of the summer revealed a substantial percentage of stallholders owed rent payments to the council. David Shepherd, Barnsley Council’s service director for economic regeneration, said: “As a responsible landlord, we have regular discussions with our market traders about improvements that can be made to the market. Recent conversations with traders suggested there was a difference in trading position between the ground level and first floor of

the market. We decided to look into this opening up further discussions, with traders. After listening to feedback, we proposed a 50 per cent reduction in rent for first floor traders. “After taking this to a consultation, the results showed that the majority of traders were happy with the proposal. Therefore the change was implemented from September 1. “The rent reduction will not only help support traders on the upper level, but also help attract new businesses into the market to ensure it continues to be a vibrant shopping destination. “By attracting more new businesses into the market, we’re hopeful this will offset any loss of rental income from reducing rents for upstairs traders. “The market has been supported by the addition of new operators in Market Kitchen, which is an exciting addition to the market, wider Glass Works and town centre. “As always, I would like to encourage the people of Barnsley to continue to support our fantastic traders and brilliant market by shopping locally.” n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Figures suggest drop in fly-tipping cases Musician Holly’s hoping Small Talk will make big impression FLY-TIPPING incidents in Barnsley have been reduced by almost 1,000 cases in a year, according to official figures. From April 2018 to March 2019, a total of 2,791 cases were recorded compared to 3,746 for 2017/18 – a 25.5 per cent reduction. The figures, from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), reveal a three-year downward trend for the

borough after figures peaked in 2016/17, when 4,328 cases were lodged with the council. Although clean-up costs for the last financial year have not yet been published, the figure is expected to be much lower than 2017/18’s £226,776 and the previous year’s £321,640. Little Houghton Parish Council’s Kevin Osborne, who has campaigned for stiffer punishments for fly-tippers,

said: “It’s a remarkable achievement in terms of how much the figures have gone down in a year. “However, it’s important to remember that these only relate to the council’s land and they don’t include private fly-tipping, where I believe it’s at its worst.” According to the DEFRA report, construction and household-related tipping was most common throughout the period, with those cat-

egories totalling a combined 2,019 cases. Seventeen fly-tippers’ vehicles were seized and crushed but just seven prosecutions were achieved, despite 2,528 ‘warning letters’ being sent by the council. According to the council, figures for reported tipping are reducing thanks to proactive work by officers and the local authority’s award-winning #EverybodyThink campaign.

FORMER X Factor contestant Holly Tandy, from Darton, has released her new single. Holly, now 18, has spent the past two years working on new music since she competed in ITV’s X Factor aged just 16. She released her new single, Small Talk, last Wednesday.

“I’ve been doing a lot of writing in the past two years and I am really excited to be releasing new music to show people what I’ve been up to,” said Holly. “My new single has got a really fun vibe and it feels like anyone can enjoy it. “I’ve written music I would want to listen

to, which I hope will appeal to people. “I feel like I’ve really matured since I left the X Factor and this single is a representation of that. ‘I’ve wanted to wait to release something that I was really proud of.” Small Talk, is available on all streaming sites.

£1m set aside for Penny Pie Park bridge

Reunion for former pit workers A REUNION will be held for miners of Gawber Colliery, 32 years after the pit closed. Former miner Sam Morgan, 65, has organised the reunion for the past five years to help keep the memory and the camaraderie of the pit alive. The mine closed in 1987 after being a working operation for more than 130 years. “I organised the first reunion, and did a big one for the 30th anniversary of the pit closure and I have taken it from there each year,” said Sam, of Doles Crescent, Royston. “I think it’s important to keep the camaraderie and the friendships alive because we aren’t getting any younger and it was a big part of our lives. “Each year we have a great turn-out and it’s amazing to see everyone come together and talk about old times.” The reunion will be held at New Road WMC, Mapplewell on Friday, November 22 from 7.30pm onwards.

set aside cash for the bridge in the multi-million pound project. However, approval is still needed from Network Rail, which has to ensure any developments over the railways are safe. Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said: “The council has put money aside to build a new footbridge, allowing people to cross between Penny Pie Park and the playing fields, subject to Network Rail’s approval. “It’s something which was discussed during the public consultation exercises and also by local councillors. “While we’ve put aside up to £1m for the footbridge, we don’t expect it to cost as much as that. “If we had allocated £200,000 and it cost half a million, we’d have a big deficit so it’s

been done to cover all bases.” More than 2,700 people signed a petition against the gyratory, but the council insists the changes are needed to tackle increasing traffic, which it claims has grown substantially and is projected to reach the point where Barnsleybound vehicles could be left backing up onto the M1 if no changes are made. The local authority won approval from its own planning board, ruling cabinet and most recently a scrutiny panel made up of councillors who opted against referring the plan back to cabinet members with an alternative recommendation. Coun Neil Wright, who represents the Dodworth ward, said it was ‘vital’ that the bridge is created.

FUNDING of up to £1m for a new footbridge which will link pedestrians to playing areas when a controversial new road system is created has been set aside. Penny Pie Park, on the corner of Dodworth Road and Pogmoor Road, will be affected by the one-way road system which will be built as a traffic-reduction measure. The park – which will lose 1.133 hectares of its land – sits close to a football ground in Pogmoor and Sugden’s recreation space but access between the three is cut by a single-track railway line. Following local councillors’ calls to link the playing areas, amid safety concerns caused by the multi-lane new carriageway, the council has revealed it has

4 – Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, November 12, 2019 A COMEDIAN from Barnsley has paired with a Britain’s Got Talent star for a new show with the message that ‘not all disabled people are heroes’. Some, says stand-up Pete Selwood, are just ordinary people trying to be funny. Pete, 29, was born with syndactyly, meaning the digits on one of his hands are fused together. But Pete didn’t even know what the condition was called until he began writing an upcoming show with Britain’s Got Talent star Jack Carroll which discusses the pair’s lives with disabilities. “I have to do a bit about it,” said Pete, of Wentworth Road, Penistone. “When you walk on a stage, people in the audience are looking at you and trying to work out what you’re about and what’s different. “There’s a tension in the room and if you don’t get rid of it at the start, it builds up. “So I’ll usually say something like ‘yes, I’ve got one hand, but my brother’s ginger – so that’s a win for me’. “I have tried to do less and less of it, but at the same time it’s interesting and people find it funny. “It’s a balance – it’s not relatable, no one can relate if I go ‘isn’t it weird

when you can’t open a tin of beans because you’ve only got one hand?’ “I don’t mind people referring to me afterwards as that one-handed comedian.” Unhappy in his job as a cocktail bar manager in Chester, after moving there to study journalism, Pete started performing on his 26th birthday. He went to the Frog and Bucket comedy club in Manchester for its ‘beat the frog’ open mic – being handed a fiveminute spot and given three chances to impress members of the audience employed as judges. “I got through the five minutes on my first go, which is quite rare,” said Pete. “I thought, if I’m funny enough to make these people laugh then I might have something. “I thought I was amazing, but as with any job you look back and realise you weren’t that good. “When it goes well, nothing tops it.” Pete has been performing since, being named Lawrence Batley New Yorkshire Comic of the Year. He got to know Jack, whose cerebral palsy has influenced much of his stand-up, at a show. Jack, who became a national star as a teenager on Britain’s Got Talent, had been developing a show with the

BBC – but when the pair got to work they realised it would be suited to the stage. The show starts with a ‘big, sanctimonious’ speech thanking the audience for coming, before a foulmouthed behindthe-scenes clip where the two make digs at those watching. More videos and audio clips – including a ‘talk with God’ set to feature a famous local voice for each location – fill the set. Pete said: “It settles people down and lets them know it’s not a show with a message – it’s just normal people trying to be funny. “There’s a few risky bits, but we’re only making fun of ourselves. “We were talking about those stories online where you see a girl on Tinder who gets lots of matches, and everyone says she’s so inspiring. She’s probably not, she’s just really attractive. “It’s this fallacy that everyone disabled is a hero and it gets played up on social media. “Some disabled people are just d******ds.” The show, ImPairment, will take place at the Electric Theatre, off Eastgate, on January 31.

Business is being kept in the family A HAIRDRESSER has hung up her scissors and clippers after 53 years of running her own business. Patricia Cherry, who runs Cherry’s Hair Salon, in Pontefract Road, Lundwood, has decided that at the age of 78, it’s time to pass her business down to her granddaughter, Alisha. Patricia – or Pat as she is known to most – who was born in Lundwood, took after her mother, who was a hairdresser. The 78-year-old, of Lang Avenue, said the salon was first called Bertha’s when it opened more than half a century ago before it changed to Pat’s, and then finally became Cherry’s about six years ago. “Originally I started the business in my mother’s name,” said Pat. “My mother was a hairdresser for 24 years. “I worked in Barnsley for some time when my mother finished in her shop and I had my own business in town, but when I started my own family I moved back to Lundwood. It went from there really. “I have had my mum’s customers and the same customers who have come back for years. Our oldest customer is 97-years-old. It’s a big achievement to have run this business for so long.” Pat’s daughter Julie has been working alongside her in the shop, but it’s Pat’s granddaughter Alisha who will be taking over the business. “Alisha will have guidance from family members, including me, her auntie Julie and her dad Robert. Julie has worked in the shop for more than 30 years and she has had a hip operation so she is out of action at the moment. “I think Alisha will do a great job, she is 20 and she will be great for the younger generation and customers.” However, even though Pat won’t be doing any more wash and blow dries after she officially retired on Saturday, she is still carrying on working for her other family business, Cherry’s Coal Merchants, where she answers the phones.

BOOK OF THE MONTH

RAILS THROUGH BARNSLEY By Alan Whitehouse & Peter Rodgers RRP £16.99 OFFER PRICE £11.99

Few people realise it, but Barnsley was once the centre of a railway universe. In Victorian times, dozens of competing companies put forward schemes to build railways across, through and around the town. Between them they constructed what some still regard as the most dense railway network in the country - more complicated even than London’s commuter system or even the railway networks of our major cities. The reason almost no one knows about it is because many of the lines built never saw a passenger service. They were built for one reason: coal. A maze of semi-unknown branches served every colliery in the district and the network became so overloaded with coal trains that they even had to build a railway bypass around the town to prevent everything grinding to a standstill! Down the years Barnsley’s railway network became something of a backwater, ignored by many enthusiasts and photographers. So the full story of how the railways aided the town’s prosperity has rarely been told. This book is an attempt to put that right by giving a relatively short - but fact-packed - history, looking at each of the railway companies that opened up the town and connecting it with what was going on in the outside world. It includes a collection of high quality images, many of which have not been seen before. As the coal industry rose and fell, so did the railway system which served it, and this book will show exactly how it all happened and why.

Goldthorpe is given a six-figure boost A GOVERNMENT initiative to support struggling towns will see Goldthorpe get a sixfigure investment. The blueprint for the Towns Fund, a £3.6bn central government pot dedicated to ‘levelling up all parts of the country’, has been outlined – with Goldthorpe among the 100 towns nationally to benefit. Barnsley Council will receive £140,000 allocated to Goldthorpe – with the money set to improve the town’s transport, skills and internet connectivity. Communities and local government secretary Robert Jenrick said: “This government is committed to levelling up all parts of the country. “We created the £3.6bn Towns Fund to help businesses grow, connect communities and give

people the skills they need to succeed. “But no place is exactly the same.” Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and local growth Jake Berry said: “We are giving local people in South Yorkshire the money and power to decide what is best for their town because they know their community’s unique strengths. “Together we can build on the billions of pounds the government has already invested in our towns and the thousands of new jobs and businesses it has delivered, to level up these places across the Northern Powerhouse.” The Towns Fund comprises the Stronger Towns Fund – funding from which Barnsley missed out on earlier this year – and the

Future High Streets Fund, a £1bn pot to redevelop high streets and town centres. Barnsley Council will now bring together a Town Deal Board, including representatives from across the public, private and voluntary sectors, to develop a Town Investment Plan by summer 2020. Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for regeneration and culture, said: “Barnsley Council are pleased to have been allocated £140,000 from the Towns Fund to support in the development of an investment plan for Goldthorpe. “The investment plans are expected to increase economic growth with a focus on regeneration, improved transport, better broadband connectivity, skills and culture.”

Two new scanners for hospital BARNSLEY Hospital is to get two new life-saving scanning machines used to detect cancers and other illnesses as part of a cash injection totalling more than £1.6m. The MRI and CT machines – worth £1m and £650,000 respectively – will improve screening and early diagnosis of cancer as part of a nationwide commitment to ensure thousands more people survive cancer each year. This new equipment also brings new capability for Barnsley’s doctors, with the machines enabled for artificial intelligence (AI) use. The hospital’s lead radiographer

Liz Elfleet said: “As a department we’re really excited. We currently have two CT scanners and this means one of them can be replaced with a state-of-the-art machine. “These scanners take images through sections of the body and are of great benefit to cancer patients. “The MRI scanner has broader uses as well but both new machines will be easier to use and it will be quicker to scan and construct images, reducing the need to re-scan. It is great that the hospital is getting this investment.”

There is just one simple rule in Sudoku. Each row and each column must contain the numbers 1 to 9, and so must each 3x3 box. This is a logic puzzle, and you should not have to guess.

Each pair of words has a missing word between them that acts as a link to both (eg FRONT - DOOR - MAT). The shaded squares of the six answers (reading downwards) will spell out a random word.

A week in WAB history...

It’s not the end of Dickie’s innings... WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in November 2013... November 1 Statue To Be Put Back In Its Place MANY of you have noticed that a familiar town centre statue is missing. Don’t worry, the Dickie Bird statue hasn’t been stolen – he’s safe and sound with its sculptor Graham Ibbeson, who has plans to raise the plinth. Dickie, 80, played cricket for Yorkshire before becoming an umpire, notching up 66 Test matches, at the time a world record. He received an MBE in 1986 and has received honorary doctorates from Leeds and Sheffield Hallam

universities, as well as being awarded the Freedom of Barnsley. His life-size bronze statue has been in its position in St Mary’s Garden since June 30, 2009, and will be reinstalled on Sunday, November 4 Barnsley Man To Be Awarded By Police A BARNSLEY man who risked his life and entered a burning house will be commended by the police for his bravery. Stephen William Thacker, of Goldthorpe, noticed that a house on Jackson Street was on fire, the home was full of dense smoke and flames were visible from the outside on October 12. The 23-year-old thought that people could have been inside the property and without any regard for his own safety entered

the premises. He checked the house, cupboards and wardrobes to make sure adults and children were not hiding from the fire. Once emergency services arrived, Stephen was able to provide information to the fire crew, which greatly assisted their efforts. Andy Brooke, Barnsley’s chief superintendent, will award Stephen with a Commander’s Commendation in recognition of his courage and excellent public service on November 19. Mr Brooke said: “Thankfully no people were in the premises at the time of the fire, yet Stephen was not aware of this and his actions were clearly courageous and without due regard for his own safety. “I have no hesitation in awarding Stephen this

award in recognition of his actions.” November 6 Former School Site Set For Major Redevelopment A FORMER school site in Barnsley could be transformed into a £10million shopping complex. Rothstone Estates has big plans for the site on which Foulstone School once stood in Darfield, with supermarket giants Sainsbury’s and Lidl having already agreed terms. The application, which is set to be submitted to Barnsley Council, will create around 80 jobs if the plans are approved. The Nanny Marr Road development will also include a 180-space car park and a mix of two and three-bedroom houses. A number of public consultation sessions to give

residents the chance to view the plans are being held in Darfield this month. The managing director of Rothstone Estates, Mark Rothery, said: “This would provide a much-needed boost to local retail facilities as well as a significant number of jobs. “Currently, Darfield residents have limited choice, so many people have to travel out of the village to shop. The scheme would provide access to shops which meet the needs of the local community.” November 18 Campaigners Link Arms Around Central Library AROUND 200 campaigners who want to save Barnsley Central Library formed a human chain around the building. They waved home-made

banners and chanted throughout Saturday’s demonstration. Local campaigner Dave Gibson said: “Our petition against the demolition has had over 4,000 signatures and we have had a very positive response by standing outside the library so far. “It’s a well-used, purpose-built library which is less than 40 years old. It’s crazy to pull it down. The library service in the centre of Barnsley will get worse.” The council says redevelopment of the Shambles Street site will enhance the town centre and increase footfall, contributing to increased spend and improving Barnsley’s economy. The vision for the new £17million sixth form is ‘an inspirational and vibrant building’.

Reds are secondbest in battle of basement rivals BARNSLEY are bottom of the Championship after being soundly beaten 4-2 by fellow strugglers Stoke City at Oakwell. A Sam Clucas double and goals from Lee Gregory and Joe Allen outdid the Reds, who looked second-best to a side clearly buoyed by a change of manager and system. Stoke opened the scoring eight minutes in, after Gregory conceded a fairly innocuous free kick for handball just under 40 yards out.  Brad Collins stepped up to take the kick, but the Reds keeper horribly misjudged it and hit the ball low into Stoke’s midfield. Clucas pounced on the ball and, seeing Collins was nowhere near his line, looped a long shot over him and into the net.  Barnsley had their first chance on the 15-minute mark, Dimitri Cavare playing the ball into Cauley Woodrow in the box. Woodrow’s firsttime shot was well held by Jack Butland.  The Reds then had another half-chance a minute later as Kenny Dougall was waiting on the edge of the box after a throw-in from the left, but the Australian hit his shot well over the bar.  Stoke had another chance when Danny Batth headed into Collins’ hands from a corner on the right, but there was some controversy in the build-up as Gregory appeared to handle the ball as he broke the offside trap down the right wing.  The Reds then enjoyed a spell of pressure without really threatening the goal, peppering the Stoke penalty area with crosses from all angles.  But Michael O’Neill’s side defended well and broke up the pitch, winning a penalty in the 29th minute as James McClean – a threatening presence on the left wing – dribbled into the box and was tripped by Alex Mowatt. Gregory put the ball down on the penalty spot, and duly converted, sending Collins the wrong way and putting it into the bottom left corner. Barnsley attempted to mount a comeback shortly after half-time, Cameron McGeehan collecting a through ball from half-time substitute Luke Thomas and firing home from close range in the second minute of the second half. 

After his immediate impact, Thomas then looked as if he would win his side a penalty – but as the winger was brought down after cutting into the box from the right, the referee stayed quiet. Mowatt fired wide after picking up the loose ball. The visitors could have had a third if not for Collins, who denied Gregory after the striker was found unmarked on the back post from a cross. The keeper somehow got his legs in the way as the Stoke forward shot from six yards.  However, the Potters did get their third when the Reds failed to deal with a 64th minute corner and Allen hit a low effort towards goal on the turn. Stoke then got their fourth, and Clucas his second, three minutes later as the midfielder rifled the ball past Collins from the edge of the area after Gregory laid the ball off.  A swerving effort by Cavare from outside the box narrowly missed the right-hand post on the 70-minute mark. Late replacement for Conor Chaplin, Patrick Schmidt went one better than his fellow substitute Thomas in making his mark on the game in the 82nd minute, collecting Mowatt’s long ball over the top of Stoke’s back line with his first touch and then sliding the ball past Butland with his second.  Stoke could have had a fifth when, after the Reds left men up for a corner, Mame Diouf was clean through on goal. But Thomas was there to put him off enough so that he couldn’t get a shot away. Barnsley (3-5-2): Collins, marks out of ten: 5; Diaby 5, Halme 5, Sibbick 5 (Thomas 45); Cavare 5, McGeehan 6 (Wilks 75), Mowatt 6, Brown 5; Woodrow 5, Chaplin 5 (Schmidt 82).

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.
