Future is bright says Tory MP BARNSLEY now has a Tory MP among its four representatives in Parliament following a disastrous result for the Labour Party at last week’s general election. Miriam Cates was elected Conservative MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge. It’s a seat which includes the two Penistone wards as well as Dodworth and extends to within a stone’s throw of Barnsley town centre. The last time any part of the Barnsley borough had a Conservative MP was the former Penistone constituency in 1931. She secured 23,688 votes – the highest share and biggest majority of any of the four MPs elected for Barnsley – with 47.8 per cent of the vote. Labour’s Dan Jarvis, Stephanie Peacock and John Healey retained their seats in Barnsley Central, Barnsley East and Wentworth and Dearne respectively, but with smaller majorities. Penistone and Stocksbridge had been held by Labour’s Angela Smith, but she quit her party and ended up joining the Liberal Democrats. She failed in her bid to win the Altrincham and Sale West seat and Hannah Kitching – a current councillor for the Penistone West ward

on Barnsley Council – contested Penistone and Stocksbridge. Cates’ 23,688 votes beat Labour’s Francyne Johnson’s 16,478, Kitching’s 5,054 and John Booker, from the Brexit Party (4,300). In a statement released after the result, the new MP said: “We have made history here. For too long there has been a sense of frustration in our area, as we have felt left behind, held back and unrepresented. “The people of Penistone and Stocksbridge have voted for a fresh start. We have chosen a future of ambition and aspiration, a future where enterprise and creativity will be encouraged. “We have chosen a future where opportunity can be available to all, right here in our towns and villages, and we hav voted to uphold democracy. “Above all, I want to say thank you to the people of Penistone, Stocksbridge, Dodworth, Chapeltown, Oughtibridge and all our villages for putting your faith in me. “I am honoured to be able to serve you in this way and I will work tirelessly for a better future for everyone in our precious communities.” For full coverage of the election and more from the winning candidates, see Friday’s Barnsley Chronicle.

INBRIEF... Help pets in need this Christmas A FUNDRAISING appeal has been launched for pets spending Christmas in a rescue centre. Over the festive period, Pets At Home, based at Peel Retail Park and Cortonwood, are taking part in the fundraiser to help generate cash for rescue pets at Barnsley and District Animal Welfare. It is part of the national annual Santa Paws appeal by Support Adoption For Pets, a grant-giving pet charity. The appeal, which is running until Christmas Eve, is raising money to help pay for essential vet bills and care costs over the festive period. Robert Helliwell, store manager at Cortonwood, said: “We’re proud and excited to be raising money for Barnsley and District Animal Welfare as part of this year’s Santa Paws appeal, and we hope our customers and the people of Barnsley will get involved and support us with our fundraising. “We have ambitious fundraising plans, and every donation will go towards helping a rescue pet in need.”

Advertiser announcement

Show comes to town as XPO rewards its staff...

THE BLACK Friday Celebrations were well underway at XPO Barnsley’s Greatest Show, an event for colleagues to say a huge thank you and appreciation for the hard work, and to celebrate the start of the Christmas Festivities on site. From management appearing as characters from The Greatest Showman and free Popcorn & Candyfloss for all colleagues, it was a fun filled start to the busiest time of the year. Glitter face painting, a Magic Mirror photo booth, prize giveaways and entertainment also took place across two days for all shifts, this was definitely the Greatest Show…

On Thursday November 14 colleagues from XPO Logistics swapped their comfy beds for the night to sleep rough at Oakwell stadium in an effort to raise funds and awareness for charity Centrepoint. Centrepoint supports more than 60 homeless young people every day in Barnsley, and more than 200 across Yorkshire, providing accommodation and support to help young people to turn their lives around. This year colleagues who joined the Big Barnsley Sleep Out, managed to raise a fantastic £1,500.

Colleagues from XPO Logistics support the SuperJam tea parties at Holiday Inn, Dodworth every month. This week the special Christmas SuperJam took place and volunteers wore their favourite festive jumpers. With 240 people in attendance it was another fantastic successful event. International Men’s Day was celebrated on site at XPO Logistics, Barnsley. To show appreciation to all, free chocolates were handed out at the end of shifts.

Drug busts at centre of new police action POLICE from across Barnsley carried out a series of drug busts and high-visibility patrols as part of an impromptu day of action. Another instalment of Operation Voyager, in which police from neighbourhood teams across the borough and PCSOs were joined by partner agencies in a concentrated crackdown, saw four drugs warrants executed and four people arrested as a result, seven vehicles recovered and four traffic offence reports issued. It was the second of such operations that used Goldthorpe as a base, but rather than focus on traffic offences as earlier in the year, the operation concentrated on drugs and anti-social behaviour. High visibility patrols were completed on Wombwell’s High Street throughout the day by mounted police and traffic colleagues, following concerns raised at the most recent PACT meeting. Acting police sergeant Richard Darby said: “If anyone is thinking of doing something they shouldn’t, hopefully they see the fluorescent jackets and it’ll be enogh of a deterrent to put them off. “Drugs are a priority in the area, as crime is generally caused by people on drugs or those supplying drugs.

“We had a lot of intelligence in relation to the addresses we went to. “We also target organised crime groups as we know they fuel other problems. They remain a priority. “We do what we can, and if we could do it all the time we would.” More than 40 PCs and PCSOs split between drugs warrants and patrols around Wombwell, Hoyland and Goldthorpe. Two cannabis factories were located at two of the addresses visited, with quantities of cannabis and crack cocaine recovered. Three stolen vehicles were recovered from the Dearne area, and four further vehicles were recovered for insurance and traffic-related offences. A vehicle was found abandoned in the Hoyland area by PCSOs, where a large quantity of white powder, a large knife, and cash were all seized. A number of homeless referrals were made to the council’s homeless section in relation to rough sleepers. A crime prevention stall was also run on Wombwell’s High Street. Traffic wardens also attended and issued a number of parking tickets. High-visibility patrols were also completed in the Hoyland and Goldthorpe areas throughout the day.

Town’s volunteer-run bus services are just the ticket PENISTONE’S community bus service is riding high. More and more people are using the popular volunteer-staffed number 25 which enables older and more vulnerable residents to get out and about. The bespoke service is also forging ahead with funding sources – reducing its reliance on Penistone Area Council. And the volunteers have been praised for running the service ‘for all the right reasons’. At a meeting of the area council, the authority’s manager Elaine Equeall said: “Our funding has fallen, which is great news as the service is getting money for itself. “They are in a development stage now and there is a real feeling that everyone is part of it. “The volunteers have a sense of wanting to serve the community and are really enthusiastic.”

In the past year, South Pennine Community Transport has secured funding for 53 per cent of its running costs from sources other than the area council. From September, SPCT started an additional 25A service to serve Millhouse Green and provide a daily link with Holmfirth. Ms Equeall said the extra service is in its infancy but is already used and growing. During the summer, SPCT joined the Barnsley Bus Partnership, opening up lines of communication with South Yorkshire PTE and other bus operators. “This enables us to help develop an attractive and sustainable bus network for Penistone and the surrounding areas,” said Ms Equeall. For the future, the service is partnering the UK’s largest provider of community transport – HCT Group. “As part of this, South

Pennine will start its own five-year plan to achieve objectives such as increased cross-boundary services and new partnerships,” added Ms Equeall. The service’s success has been rounded off by being shortlisted for a Community Transport Provider of the Year award. “This already means we are ranked in the top three of all such providers in the UK,” said Ms Equeall. “We are incredibly proud of this achievement.” Coun John Wilson said: “They are doing this for all the right reasons. Everyone involved is passionate and not just in it for money.” Coun Dave Griffin said: “This is really encouraging. Passenger numbers have doubled and that’s excellent. “When we started this, sustainability was a concern but they have overcome barriers all round.”

Best ever lights show MORE people than ever came to see a Penistone family’s Christmas lights show. There were so many well-wishers for the occasion, the road outside the house on Long Furlong was blocked for a time. “It was the best turnout we have ever had,” said Stephen Baumber, who has been putting

on a fundraising display for 14 years. As more than 200 people crowded round to see the illuminations, donations to a local good cause were pouring in. This year, the Baumbers are supporting the town’s Happy Cafe, which works to promote wellbeing among residents.

Country lane ‘ruined’ RESIDENTS in a ‘nestled away’ community in Cudworth who claim their houses have plummeted in value because of a 289-home estate have condemned fresh plans which could result in more housing being built. Carrs Lane, a narrow street which has been described as one of the village’s best residential areas thanks to its close proximity to open countryside, has been ‘ruined’ residents say by Barratt Homes’ ongoing development on what locals say was a wildlife haven. But now Barnsley Council’s planning bosses have caused fresh anger by earmarking a neighbouring field for ten more houses – something which residents told the Chronicle was ‘unacceptable’ given the large-scale development they’ve already had to endure. The application, submitted by Jaguar Estates and Wortley Construction, includes ten bungalows and will be decided by councillors on Tuesday in its outline form, meaning another bid will have to be made before full approval is granted. A spokesperson from Cudworth Unites, an action group which formed several years ago to battle the neighbouring Barratt Homes development, said: “Carrs Lane is nestled away and it’s one of, if not the best, areas in Cudworth because of its positioning on the edge of the village’s countryside. “In the last two years work has stepped up considerably on Barratt Homes’ site, which I’m told is just

about finished, and has caused chaos in the locality because of the amount of lorries going to and from the site. “Carrs Lane was peaceful, it was quiet and it was desirable but that’s been ruined by Barnsley Council’s local plan (which sets out future housing up to 2033) as it’s basically encouraged development in the most unsuitable of places. “Locals have objected to the latest plan because they’ve already endured the Barratt Homes build – ten bungalows may seem small fry compared to that development but enough is enough. “House prices, we believe, have already plummeted because it’s not the area it once was and that’s down to what’s been allowed to happen.” The site – which sits adjacent to Carrs Lane – has also been brought up as a concern by locals who claim it’s flooded in the past, although a planning statement which will be discussed on Tuesday reveals Yorkshire Water did not lodge any issues when assessing the land. If approved as expected, £64,000 will be secured via a Section 106 agreement – money set aside by developers for loss of amenity – which will be allocated to increase a local school’s capacity. “The site was previously used for agricultural purposes, being part of a wider network of fields which have approval for residential development of 289 dwellings, currently in the process of being built

by Barratt Homes,” a council planning report added. “It is proposed to build ten dormer bungalows, fronting onto Carrs Lane, with parking and gardens. “The application is in outline form but seeks approval over the means of access, layout, landscaping and scale of the proposed development. “Objections have been received which say no more housing should be allowed on Carrs Lane given the amount already built, that the lane can’t support any more cars as is it unsafe for pedestrians, services are already overstretched and that residents should not have to put up with more noise and dust from construction. “In summary the proposal is in accordance with the local plan in that it proposes residential development on a site that is allocated for new housing development, delivering additional dwellings on top of the anticipated yield. It would assist with the delivery of housing growth targets.” Coun Charlie Wraith told the Chronicle he wasn’t against the plan, but said it would have been different if the developer wanted to build large houses. “That area of Cudworth has had its problems with the Barratt Homes estate but this application is in keeping with Carrs Lane as they’re bungalows,” he added. “If they submitted a plan to build ten four-bedroom houses instead, it’d be a different matter as they wouldn’t be in keeping. I can’t see a problem with this.”

Hands off... but it’s BOOK OF fine to listen as THE MONTH IDEAL CHRISTMAS GIFT band confirm dates FOLLOWING the announcement of their headline homecoming show at the Birdwell Venue, Barnsley four-piece Hands Off Gretel have laid out their plans for the new year. The rock band fronted by 22-year-old Lauren Tate, from Worsbrough Village, have dubbed the upcoming tour the ‘Don’t Touch Tour’. It will take in Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club, Sheffield’s Leadmill and, for the first time in the band’s history, dates in Ireland. Lauren said: “We are looking forward so much to getting back out on tour and kicking off in Ireland, which will be our first time playing there. “Our tour in 2019 was fantastic. We had so many soldout gigs and we’re hoping we can do the same in 2020. “The crowds have definitely grown and it’s nice to see the hard work finally paying off. Playing to a full room is what any band works towards. “There are some new venues on the tour as well, which we’re really looking forward to.” The tour continues a huge year for the band, with the release of their acclaimed second album I Want the World being followed by a tour and spots at Isle of Wight

THE ACTIVITY JOURNAL Festival, Kendal Calling and Y Not. Lauren has also written and released a solo album, Songs for Sad Girls. Hands Off Gretel will perform at the Birdwell Venue next Saturday,

December 21, with support from As Sirens Fall, Frank Grimes & The Disasters and Eloise Kerry. They will then play the Brudenell Social Club on February 27 and Leadmill on March 28 while taking in a string of other venues.

Ashby reunite in tribute to mum A LOCAL band is reuniting to raise money in honour of a young woman who took her own life and to help her family give her the ‘perfect send-off’. Nicola Dovey, 27, who died on December 7, has been described as a ‘bright light’ for her daughter, friends and family who have been left heartbroken. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Coke’, Nicola (pictured) was a huge part of her local community, and gave her time to help others. Nicola was a ‘people person’ who, when she wasn’t spending time with her daughter and family, worked as a barmaid and spent her free time socialising with her friends. Lydia Jarvis, one of Nicola’s friends, said she was one of the kindest people she had ever met. “Coke was bubbly, cheeky, she had a wicked sense of humour, was so kind, and a really big part of the community. “She was always social, she loved being around her friends and family and always went out of her way to help others and make them laugh. “Nicola’s first priority was her family, and especially her daughter. “Coke always said that her biggest achievement in life was her amazing daughter, who is a credit to her. She was an amazing mum.

“She absolutely loved her mother. Nicola’s mum hasn’t been well, but Nicola helped her as much as she could. Family meant everything. “The first thing you noticed about her is her contagious smile, which lit up every room she was in. “It’s heartbreaking, and we will miss her every single day.” Nicola, who lived in Boltonupon-Dearne, was a big fan of local band Ashby, and often went to their gigs. The band, who had taken a break from performing, have reunited to raise funds to help Nicola’s funeral costs. Ash Mitchell, of Ashby, said:

“When we found out the news about Nicola, we were devastated and knew we had to do something for her family. “It’s something we really wanted to do as a band, to come together and support one of our own in the only way we can. “We’re going to play a gig, have raffles and other fundraising activities and invite anyone to come along. “This is one of the our first gigs back together, and we couldn’t think of anything better than coming together to remember Nicola. “It’s to be a night of celebration and happiness in her memory.” The band have organised the entire event for the family, and are leaving some little surprises for the night. “We have been in touch with a few local businesses who have wanted to help out with some small aspects. But we want to leave these as a surprise for the day.” Lydia added: “We are so grateful to Ashby for arranging this event in memory of Nicola, and are urging anyone to please come along and show support.” The concert takes place at The Ship pub in Thurnscoe on Saturday at 9pm, but doors open at 7pm. There will be a small fee on the door and anyone is welcome to come and raise money for Nicola and her family.

Vandalism ‘infuriating’

A COMMUNITY centre was left ‘devastated’ after its Christmas tree was ‘ripped apart’ by vandals overnight. New Lodge Community Centre’s tree’s decorations were smashed, the lights were torn off and thrown into a nearby field and branches were ripped from the bottom of the tree. This was after its Christmas lights switch-on, which was a free event held for residents to celebrate the start of the festive season. Tony Lowe, who is a volunteer at the community centre, was the first to find the ruined Christmas tree. “I came down in the morning to do a regular clean-up and as I went to turn the power pack on for the tree, I couldn’t find it,” he said. “I then realised that the Christmas lights were shredded and ripped. They had not just been pulled down, they had been torn apart. “The baubles and lights were found smashed on the floor as if someone had stamped on them. “It is so infuriating, especially with the time, effort and money that the community had put into it.”

Local groups – including the St Helen’s Ward Alliance – are set to provide funding to fix the damage and replace the lights and decorations that were smashed Coun Sarah Tattersall said: “It was devastating for the community to hear that the tree had been damaged. “Councillors are working with Ad Astra, the ward alliance and the North Area Council to repair the tree the best we can. “It really was the heart of the community so we will do all we can to put it back to its original state.” After hearing about the damage, local residents rallied around the community centre and offered their time and resources to help restore the tree back to its former state. Michelle Cooper, from the community centre, said: “The community really rallied around us. “We had residents offering to help us repair the tree, and even people donating their own baubles and Christmas decorations. “It was so heartwarming to see the local community pull together and help us out in our time of need.”

Con men prey on flooding victims FRAUDSTERS purporting to be from Yorkshire Water are allegedly targeting areas affected by last month’s flooding, it has been revealed. Urgent crime prevention advice has been given to residents after a spate of cases in Darfield, which was affected by widespread flooding on November 7, when more than a month’s rain fell in a 24-hour period, causing the River Dearne, Dove and Bulling Dike to burst their banks. One resident, who did not wish to be named, said that because a higher-than-normal amount of Yorkshire Water workers have been visiting victims, fraudsters have taken advantage and used fake ID to gain entry to properties. They said: “Fraudsters are out and they’re pretending to be from Yorkshire Water with fake ID and then stealing belongings once they’re inside the property. “This is an easy scam to fall for at the moment

as Yorkshire Water are doing a lot of work in the area, especially Darfield. “Yorkshire Water told me that they have absolutely no need to enter properties. “If residents do have people knock on their doors asking to enter their houses, contact Yorkshire Water to verify them. If they cannot be identified then call the police. “Yorkshire Water do take water samples from random addresses but we have spoken to them and they have confirmed that they are not taking any samples in Darfield.” Darfield, one of the worst-affected areas, will receive work from a £1m pot agreed by Barnsley Council’s ruling cabinet members which will see burst gullies repaired and cleaning rates increased as a result of councillors’ complaints about leaves and debris clogging up the drainage system. The local authority has already met with Yorkshire Water in order to act on the concerns.

A week in WAB history...

Monument is protected with new listed status 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 December 2015... December 4 Ambitious plans for road tunnel revealed AMBITIOUS plans for an underground road tunnel that would connect to Manchester have been revealed. If the plans go ahead it could offer commuters forced to use Woodhead Pass an alternative - and experts say it could carry trains too. The government has carried out initial feasibility work and say the idea of the tunnel system will be further investigated. It claims a tunnel is the only ‘credible’ solution to cutting journey times. No potential routes have yet been identified but if it was

constructed, it would strip traffic away from the Woodhead route and the A628 through the Penistone area. December 11 Barnsley named sprout capital of UK A SURVEY has revealed that Barnsley is the sprout eating capital of the UK. A study by supermarket giant Morrisons showed Barnsley topped the league tables by consuming 1,389,440 of the tiny green vegetable. December 15 Grade two status for Thurnscoe monument THE WAR memorial at Thurnscoe has been grade two listed to protect it for future generations. The war memorial, located in Thurnscoe Park, was designed by Captain M Tyas and cost £750 - it was unveiled in 1920 com-

memorating 76 local servicemen who died during the First World War. The protection of grade two status by the government means it has been recognised as an item of historic interest. The Friends of Thurnscoe Park group are hoping to secure funding to further maintain and restore the memorial. December 23 Plan for new shops revealed A FORMER public toilet building will be demolished and a new row of shops will be built in Cudworth. Council planners have approved the plan to demolish the building on Barnsley Road - which closed amid budget cuts in 2014. Eric Lidster, the developer behind the project, said the units will be of a good size and will be perfect for small, perhaps startup businesses.

WAB pictures of the week...

CHRISTMAS cheer is in the air and we love seeing photos of what you’re getting up to in the run up to Christmas. Here’s a round up of what we’ve received this week...

Head into twilight zone MANY years ago, grandpa was a World War Two flying ace. But when he is sent to old folk’s home Twilight Towers run by sinister Matron Swine, it’s up to grandpa and his grandson, Jack, to plot a daring escape. Little do they know the wicked matron is onto them. Grandpa’s Great Escape Live follows the acclaimed television film which aired on BBC One in December 2018. It will be directed by Tony Award nominee Sean Foley (The Catherine Tate Show Live & The Painkiller). Grandpa’s Great Escape is the eighth book by David Walliams and was published in September 2015. David said: “Grandpa’s Great Escape Live is an incredible new development for the book. “We’re not just turning it into a live show, but into a spectacular live arena show for all the family this Christmas. “Being in arenas means we can have a life-size Spitfire, a tank, the London landscape and a dramatic escape from the Imperial War Museum. “It’s great because we can really go to town with all of those elements and this story demands that scale.

Right: From Sarah Bagnall and Bradley Welka.

“I’m delighted to be involved with this arena tour of Grandpa’s Great Escape Live, working with fantastic people like the director Sean Foley and Kevin Cecil, who’s written the script. “To be honest, I couldn’t be more excited about it!” The wondrous stage design for Grandpa’s Great Escape Live will see arenas around the UK transformed into London and its landmarks, including Buckingham Palace and the River Thames, from thousands of feet in the sky, as grandpa’s life-size Spitfire soars through the air. Grandpa’s Great Escape Live is coming to Sheffield on December 29 and we have two family tickets to give away to two lucky readers thanks to FlyDSA arena. To win all you have to do is answer this question: “What television series does David Walliams judge?” Send your answer along with your name and contact number to competitions@wearebarnsley.com or alternatively post your entry to WAB Grandpa’s Great Escape, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The closing date is this Friday, December 20. Good luck!

Chaplin’s treble fires Reds to key victory A HAT-TRICK by Conor Chaplin inspired Barnsley to a 5-3 victory in a Championship thriller at home to Queens Park Rangers. Chaplin netted in the seventh and 18th minutes, either side of an equaliser, then completed his treble early in the second half. The visitors replied but Cauley Woodrow won and scored a penalty before Bambo Diaby sealed the win late on. Rangers then claimed a consolation goal with almost the last kick. An astonishing match brought two blitzes of three goals in a short spell early in each half while both teams missed excellent chances. But the Reds held on to claim their third win of the season and make it seven points from the last nine available at Oakwell. The gap to safety has been cut from seven points to four while basement side Barnsley are two points adrift of second-bottom Wigan Athletic. The Reds took the lead in the seventh minute, when Jacob Brown embarked on an excellent run on the right wing then advanced into the box before pulling the ball back to Chaplin, whose impressive right-footed finish from ten yards out placed the ball in the top right corner. The visitors levelled within four minutes as Jordan Hugill got the better of Mads Andersen on the left of the box then had a 15-yard shot which hit the right post and the rebound was tapped into the empty net by Luke Amos. The hosts retook the lead in the 18th minute when a corner from the right went over everyone except Chaplin, who met it at a tight angle at the back post and found the top left corner with a superb powerful strike. It was almost 3-1 when another right-wing cross was turned towards his own goal by Grant Hall but goalkeeper Joe Lumley got down to his left to claw it out. Mike Bahre was replaced by Holy Rood Catholic Primary School pupils with teacher Mr Newsome.

Luke Thomas on the left of the midfield diamond after 32 minutes, with Struber later saying it was tactical change as Bahre lacked ‘freshness’. The hosts had two penalty appeals turned down before the break. Just like in the first half, there was a flurry of goals as three went in in eight minutes in the second half. Chaplin completed his hat-trick with a cool finish on the turn from 12 yards out after Brown’s shot from the right of the box had been saved. That made it seven goals this season for the striker and six in six under Struber. QPR pulled one back when Hugill got free on the left of the box and, after keeper Sami Radlinger blocked his effort from a tight angle, Amos again was on hand to net the rebound with a good finish into the top right corner from just inside the area. Woodrow made it 4-2 from the penalty spot three minutes later after he was brought down. He found the bottom right corner for his ninth goal of the season. Those goals were part of an extraordinarily open and frantic start to the second half which then saw a series of chances missed by either side. QPR’s Bright Osayi-Samuel blazed over, while Chaplin should have scored a fourth but dragged his shot wide. The visitors then rattled the goal frame twice within a couple of minutes, through Eberachi Eze and Nahki Wells. Diaby netted the fifth late on. The centre-back was up the pitch for a free-kick which Alex Mowatt played down the right side of the penalty area to Brown, whose low cross was tapped in on the line by the Spaniard. The visitors got their third right at the end of the fourth of four added minutes, as Osayi-Samuel skipped past two players on the left of the box before pulling the ball back for substitute Ilias Chair to net.

HAT-TRICK HERO: Conor Chaplin.

Players can learn lessons from draw with Reading LUCAS Joao’s 76th-minute goal scuppered Barnsley’s hopes of a home win over Reading last Wednesday and forced a 1-1 draw. The Reds went ahead after the break when Cauley Woodrow coolly slotted into the bottom corner. But Joao levelled by poking the ball into the back of the net from close range after Barnsley failed to clear a corner. Both sides created numerous opportunities, but a combination of fine goalkeeping and poor finishing meant neither could pick up a crucial victory.

Reds head coach Gerhard Struber said: “We created a lot of good chances in the first half and I think we should have taken one of them. We need to learn. “We played for a victory after they equalised and I think that is the first step to change the mindset of the players. “I’m not happy with one point because when you look at the game you would expect that we would have won it. “We needed to focus on their goal and one or two players didn’t do that. It’s a situation we can learn from because we are a very young team.”

Reading manager Mark Bowen responded: “You’ve got to try and take something out of every game you play. “I’m really pleased that after going behind in a game and conceding a poor goal, we showed the resilience to keep pushing and we changed a few things tactically and it paid off. “We huffed and puffed a bit and showed a bit more quality on the ball, but it’s not going that fluidly for us at the moment at times. “Things seem to be going against us with injuries, but there was desire to fight back and take something.”

Rudolph Run is a fun festive fundraiser SCHOOL children are donning reindeer antlers and red noses for a festive fundraiser. The Rudolph Run is a community fundraising initiative encouraging local primary schools and community groups to take part in a festive sponsored walk or run. The money raised will be split equally between each community group and the hospice. Holy Rood Catholic Primary School in Barnsley was one of the first primary schools to sign up. Their Rudolph Run will take place today, with children

from key stage 1 and foundation using the school playground and school field to carry out a sponsored walk, and children from key stage 2 walking to Locke Park. Head teacher Karen Dobson said: “We support the hospice through many fundraising activities throughout the year, including our Christmas jumper day, so when they approached us about doing their Rudolph Run, we were all really excited. It’s so important to us to support such a fantastic local charity.” Primary schools and local groups including dance

schools and football teams have signed up to take part in the Rudolph Run. Each group were able to set the date, time and distance of their sponsored run or walk throughout December. Vicky Stead, community fundraiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “Our Rudolph Run in the community is such a fun way for children and local groups to look forward to Christmas, while also being active and raising money to fund their own activities and hospice care.” For more information on the Rudolph Run, call 244244 and ask for Vicky.

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

written notice from the Advertiser. (ii) In the event of any error, misprint or omission in the printing of an advertisement or part of an advertisement (however caused) the Company will either re-insert the advertisement or relevant part thereof, or make a reasonable refund or adjustment to the cost. No re-insertion, refund or adjustment will be made where the error, misprint or omission does not materially detract from the advertisement. (iii) In no circumstances shall the Company’s total liability (including consequential liability) in respect of any error, misprint or omission exceed either the amount of a full refund of any price paid to the Company for the advertisement in connection with which liability arose, or the cost of a further or corrective advertisement of a type and standard reasonably comparable to that in connection with which liability arose. (iv) Save as set out in this paragraph 9, the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly as a result of the publication of any advertisement or any loss or damage occasioned directly or indirectly by any total or partial failure (however caused) of the publication of any advertisement in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications or internet sites in which the advertisement is scheduled to appear. 10 Assignment (i) The Company shall be entitled to assign its contract with the Advertiser or any of its rights or benefits thereunder. (ii) The Advertiser may not assign, transfer, sub contract, charge or in any other way deal with any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the Company’s prior written consent. 11 Data Protection Act (i) The Company will hold information it obtains in its dealings with customers to administer the Advertiser’s account, for statistical purposes, for debt collection and for fraud and crime prevention. If the Advertiser does not wish its information to be used for marketing purposes, it should inform the Company in writing. (ii) Telephone calls to the Company may be monitored or recorded for staff training purposes. 12 Advertising Agencies (i) An advertising agency, whether recognised or not, submitting an advertisement shall conform to the conditions laid down by the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising regarding observance of the provisions of the British Code of Advertising Practice and to the Standard Conditions for transactions of business between newspapers and advertising agencies as agreed between the Newspaper Society and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising. (ii) The terms of the Recognition Agreement between the Newspaper Society or between the Newspaper Society and the Newspaper Proprietors Association and recognised advertising agencies are deemed to be incorporated in these conditions of acceptance for the publication and transmission of all advertisements accepted from a recognised agency. Without prejudice to the foregoing, these conditions of acceptance specifically extend to any personal guarantee given by the directors of or any other person on behalf of a recognised agency in respect of any unsatisfied liabilities of the agency in the event of the agency’s liquidation or insolvency. Such guarantee is part of these conditions of acceptance. 13 Leaflets For the purpose of these terms and conditions, any leaflet or other publication or material distributed with any of the Company’s newspapers or magazines is deemed to be an ‘advertisement’, and references to the publication of such advertisements is deemed to be the distribution or insertion of such leaflet or other publication or material. PAYMENT TERMS FOR ADVERTISERS Orders for the insertion of advertisements are accepted subject to the following payment terms: 1 Rates (i) The Company reserves the right at any time to change the scale of advertising rates and to apply such rates to advertisements (series or otherwise) accepted and not wholly executed at the time of any such change. (ii) It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to bring to the Company’s attention at the time of booking any discount, allowance or exemption from Value Added Tax to which entitlement is claimed. (iii) All gross advertising rates (except classified lineage and semi display) are subject to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance levy from time to time (currently 0.1%) payable by the Advertiser to help finance the self-regulatory system. (iv) All rates and prices quoted by the Company are exclusive of Value Added Tax. 2 Advertising Agencies (i) Commission will only be granted to agencies formally recognised by the Newspaper Society or the Company at the time of placing the order. The rate of commission payable will be determined by the Company and may be carried or withdrawn at the Company’s discretion at any time, subject to giving the advertising agency seven days written notice thereof. (ii) All advertising agencies claiming commission must quote order numbers for every booking made. 3 Time of Payment (i) Unless credit terms have been agreed, pre-payment for any advertisement must be made in full no later than the relevant deadline. (ii) In the event that credit terms are approved, payment shall be made for each advertisement no later than thirty days from the date of the invoice for such advertisement. Should the Advertiser be in breach of these terms, or of any contract with the Company, then the full amount in respect of all advertising published and all other amounts accruing from the Advertiser shall become due and payable. (iii) The Company reserves the right to withdraw credit facilities from any Advertiser at the Company’s discretion. (iv) Payments by post must be by cheque or postal order made payable to the Company and crossed. All payments must be accompanied by the relevant invoice, statement or remittance advice issued by the Company. (v) Any query in respect of an invoice must be brought to the attention of the Company within seven days of its issue. The existence of a query on any individual item on an account shall not affect the due date of payment of any balance of such account. 4 Late Payments (i) The Company shall be entitled to charge interest on all sums due at a rate of 5% above the base rate for the time being of Barclays Bank plc until payment is received, after as well as before any judgment is obtained, together with compensation for late payment under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and regulations made thereunder. (ii) The Company shall be entitled to add to any sums due any reasonable costs and expenses (including administrative costs) incurred by the Company in obtaining payment thereof on an indemnity basis. (iii) The Company shall be entitled to charge the Advertiser £15.00 in respect of any cheque tendered which is not met upon presentation (and to vary this charge at any time without notice). (iv) The Company reserves the right to exercise a lien over any documents or other property of the Advertiser in its possession if the Company’s charges are not paid in accordance with these terms and the Company’s rate card from time to time.

On the move with our helpful guide

15

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.

WHO TO NOTIFY:

            

YOUR EMPLOYER TV LICENCE OFFICE LIBRARY (RETURN CARD) FOOTBALL POOLS SOCIAL OR SPORTS CLUB STORES WHERE YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT ANY OTHER LICENCE OR REGISTRATION HELD ANY OTHER LEASE OR RENTAL (e.g. TV SET) DOCTOR (If you register with another Doctor this is automatic) DENTIST CHILDREN’S SCHOOL TRANSFUSION SERVICE IF YOU ARE A DONOR HIRE PURCHASE COMPANY
