OPERATION Bala 2 was carried out last month by four members of Hoyland SNT. In the Christmas period all the off-licences checked refused the sale of alcohol to people who are underage. Last month saw a similar return, out of ten off-licences and five pubs, 14 premises passed with flying colours. Two officers in casual clothes and two officers in uniform ran the operation. Three girls volunteered to help on the night in return for HMV vouchers. A non-uniformed officer kept an eye on the volunteers in each premises. Those who refused to sell alcohol to the girls were then congratulated by uniformed officers. Before the operation, Sgt Chris Foster explained there are different options available to those caught. “It can be a fixed-penalty notice of £80,” he said. “If the person doesn’t want to pay it then we can offer them a course which will negate the fine.” He said the course lasts four hours and includes information on alcohol licences, sale of alcohol and handling confrontational customers. Repeat offenders can have their licence confiscated. Another programme, the Barnsley Alcohol Community Partnership, is to be introduced where the Co-op will be providing training for pubs and

We only used to get around about six or seven a

night but we can do more now they are passing,” he said. Pubs followed after off-licences as customers began to filter in. Five pubs were checked with four were successful. The three girls managed to buy three halves of lager at the Traveller’s Inn in Birdwell. A fine was issued and staff said they would contact the police to undertake the training course. “He is actually on about getting all his staff trained. “That is good for him and he is doing something about it,” PC Thompson said.

COUNCILLOR Jim Andrews says he is looking to reduce problem parking at an accident hotspot in Hoyland Common. The problem of parking on Sheffield Road close to the junctions of Fitzwilliam Street and Beaumont Street was raised at a Hoyland Common Neighbourhood Watch meeting. Coun Andrews says the police are aware of the problems and he is looking to contact safety group, South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, to stop people parking close to the junctions. “It needs something there, there’s a problem with parking, in fact there’s a problem with parking in that area in general,” he said “You basically have to pull out in the middle of the road and have to veer left or veer right.” Coun Andrews said motorists who know the area approach Sheffield Road with caution. But those who don’t, approach it too quickly. “Unfortunately those houses were built when there was not as many cars about. Now there are one or two cars at every house,” he said. In October pensioner Annie Hall, of Sheffield Road, had her wall ploughed into for the second time in two years. The car smashed through her garden wall and the house shook as the vehicle ended inches from her front door.

about Elsecar’s past for people who walk around the village and a new volunteer service will be set up. “Obviously for several years we have been working very hard to put together a plan for a project to really transform the centre in many ways,” Dr Tanner said. “It is something we really hope people in Elsecar are involved with. “We are looking for people from Elsecar and asking what it is like to live and work here. We are also looking for people to help transform the site and make sure future generations and people around the world can understand what Elsecar is about.” The engine is the last remaining example in situ anywhere in the world.

Tenants sought to run park cafe NEGOTIATIONS are being held to find new tenants for Elsecar park cafe after the previous cafe manager had his lease terminated for firing a shotgun to scare off youths. Francis McDonald left the property in November after running and living in the Barnsley Councilowned cafe for four years. Coun Roy Miller, of Barnsley Council, said: “The council is committed to keeping Elsecar park as a place to enjoy for all families. “It is the council’s intention to re-let the cafe and discussions are ongoing in regard to this matter.” Coun Miller said in recent years the work of volunteer group,

Friends of Elsecar Park, and park staff had helped to restore the site. He said the park was a great place to visit and noted its gold award in the Yorkshire in Bloom competition and retained Green Flag status. Mr McDonald was given an eight-month prison sentence suspended for one year after admitting possession of a firearm with the intent to cause fear of violence. He had his shotgun confiscated and was told to complete 100 hours of community service. Mr McDonald said he had had problems with people drinking in the park, vandalism and youths having sex in the park.

Dr John Tanner, project development officer for the council’s arts and museums, provided the photos after a mini-submarine with a camera was sent down a mine shaft next to the engine. A document has also been unearthed from archives in Sheffield dating back to 1752. It is believed to be the first record of coal extraction at Elsecar colliery. The heritage centre has received £40,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to put together plans to restore the steam engine and an application has now been made for £425,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to fund the project, along with a bid for £60,000 to English Heritage. This is to support a £500,000 project to restore the engine and develop the area around it. Dr Tanner says they will find out if they are successful by midMarch. As well as restoring the engine, the heritage centre will be developed with new signs, information telling Elsecar’s story and learning opportunities for school children. There will also be signs and information

From school high jump champ to multi-sports success in the army... Roy Thompson, 72, was a big hit when it came to the high jump at school. He spoke to Adam Guest about how his love of sport took him from Cortonwood pit to playing rugby in Africa. AMONG some old Kirk Balk photos there was a picture of a young chap. Tall and athletic, he was obviously delighted with his prize, a trophy for the high jump. Former Kirk Balk pupil Roy, of Smithies Lane, Honeywell, says he was 14 or 15 at the time and the photo was taken in about 1954. He was an all-round athlete and sport ran in the family. His sister, Barbara, was a keen runner and Roy says she could give Dorothy Hyman a run for her money when they were training down at Rockingham Athletics Club. “Barbara, my older sister, used to give Dorothy Hyman a yard start until she put a bit of weight on,” he says. Like many young Barnsley lads, Roy opted for a career down the pit. He left school to become a collier at Cortonwood but, wanting to see more of the world, he left in the late 1950s to become a physical training instructor in the army. “I got to about 18 and thought

‘where is my life going?’ I had done everything in the pits and got my collier qualifications. I went into Barnsley to sign up on the Saturday and then on Tuesday I went to Pontefract Barracks to start my training,” Roy says. As a PTI, Roy was heavily involved with sport and he was encouraged to show his sporting talents. Working in Berlin he continued to excel at the high jump, competing with French and American troops. He also played rugby for the combined services and even had the opportunity to play for the Swaziland rugby team when he was sent to Africa in the early 1960s. “In Africa it was like going back 20 years in civilisation, people were still running around in loincloths,” Roy says. “If you got talking to a black person you both got put in jail for 90 days without trial.” As a keen boxer, he became heavyweight champion of his regiment, The York and Lancasters. But it wasn’t just

sporting success that Roy found when he was overseas. He met his first wife, Maria Eva from Yugoslavia, in the NAAFI canteen in Munster, Germany. They moved to Barnsley and Maria continues to live in Elsecar. Roy, now married to his second wife, Betty, still visits her. Whipping soldiers into shape was hard work, Roy says. “When they were on their fitness tests like their ten-mile runs and walks, we were running at the back because the troops used to get more money if they had passed their physical tests. “We once did a parade in Berlin and we trained for about six or seven months and I used to be right-hand marker for the battalion. “When the Russian, French and American troops came to see the parade, they say we were as good as the guards.” Closer to home, Roy played for Chester’s first team rugby squad in 1963 and he also pulled on the colours of Barnsley Rugby Club.

Search for family as historic tribute found BY ADAM GUEST AN HISTORIC piece of embroidery in honour of a Second World War hero has been found at a Hoyland charity shop. Jean Brammah, 64, works at the Salvation Army charity shop in West Street. She made the discovery after items were donated from a house clearance. The stitching commemorates Major John Thompson McKellar Anderson of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. He was awarded the Victoria Cross for an attack on Longstop Hill, Tunisia in 1943. Maj Anderson captured the hill despite suffering a leg wound and his commanding officer and company commanders being killed. He also led three attacks on machine gun positions. The needlework is made on a piece of white fabric which Jean and her husband Peter believe may be from a sling. Maj Anderson died in October 1943 in Termoli, Italy, aged 25. He was from Hampstead in London. “It was a house clearance that came in and the manageress had it on the till and I thought this is interesting,” Jean said. “Obviously he has not done it, it was done on behalf of him

Historic item: Charity shop worker Jean Brammah with the embroidery she found. Picture: Brett Carr because he had died when it was done, there’s some work that has been done on it.” The Victoria Cross is on show in Stirling Castle and the couple have emailed them to tell them

of the rare find. They are hoping the family will get in touch or the artwork will find a new home. “I hope it does go to where it should be,” Jean added.
