Frustration for drivers as road closure remains A ROAD closed after drivers were found to be using it as an ‘unofficial diversion’ is expected to remain inaccessible for the next eight weeks. Dovecliffe Road in Wombwell was closed on February 27 after an increase in the volume of traffic combined with the bad weather to cause significant damage to the road surface. The increase in use was, according to a Barnsley Council spokesman, due to drivers attempting to avoid a diversion put in place following the closure of Hough Lane while the road’s railway bridge is replaced. Some commuters have claimed the signposted diversion – via Wood Walk, Dearne Valley Parkway, Wath Road, Valley Way, Mayflower Way, Park Street and Church Street – has added up to an hour on to their rush hour journeys. Jan Bell, from the Bolthole Cafe on Dovecliffe Road, said trade had initially been affected by the Hough Lane closure but had since picked up. However, since the most recent closure she said some staff struggled to get into work and while the cafe still gets its ‘regulars’, passing trade has been affected. “It’s making life a bit more difficult for us all,” she said.

“What used to be a few minutes’ drive now takes 15 to 20 minutes. “There are massive ruts and potholes. I’ve heard a lot of people are trying to put claims in with the council because of damage to their vehicles. “One of our customers had their wheel destroyed in a pothole. “It needed repairing anyway – perhaps it could’ve been done before they closed the bridge.” Wombwell councillor Brenda Eastwood said: “These roads aren’t meant for such heavy traffic, that’s why the council is constantly having to fill potholes in. “But the weather we’ve had hasn’t been helping.” The road is closed from Station Road, Worsbrough, to Wood Walk, with access to Pit Lane and Smithley Lane for residents only. While Dovecliffe Road is expected to be closed for eight weeks, the Hough Lane closure – which stretches from Dovecliffe Road to Foundry Gate – will last until June according to Network Rail. This is so utilities such as gas, electricity and water can be removed from the Victorian-era bridge ahead of it being demolished and reconstructed.

INBRIEF... Council reviews Coronavirus plan TWO cases of coronavirus in Barnsley were confirmed by health bosses on Friday. Both are unrelated and the individuals affected were confirmed to have contracted the virus outside of the borough. Julia Burrows, director of Public Health at Barnsley Council, said in a statement that the risk of transmission is low and advised people to go about their daily business as normal. There is no evidence of the flulike virus spreading within the town, but Ms Burrows said the department would not be announcing any new cases and asked people ‘not to speculate about individuals’. “The small number of confirmed cases in the borough suggests that we’re still in a period of containment and we’re not yet seeing evidence of it spreading,” said Ms Burrows. “We know it’s a rapidly evolving situation, so I do want to prepare residents for the possibility that we will see an increasing number of cases in Barnsley. “We’ve been reviewing all of our council business continuity plans to make sure we are in the best possible position to respond.” Those concerned about symptoms should contact the NHS online coronavirus service or call NHS 111, rather than contacting or visiting a GP or hospital.

Security push at problem bridge to protect motorists SECURITY measures are being stepped up to protect motorists after a spate of brick-throwing incidents caused thousands of pounds in damage to cars, the Chronicle can reveal. Youngsters have been scaling the banking of the former railway line where the bridge used to go across Barnsley Road, Cudworth, since November. Three buses and two cars were damaged before Christmas and, despite incidents quietening down over the new year period, two more took place in February which led to renewed calls for more to be done. Despite Network Rail – the landowner – admitting it could take as long as six months to erect heightened fencing and anti-climb spikes due to a road closure having to be implemented, Barnsley Council’s extending the wrought iron fencing along the road while The Prince of Wales Trust have been cutting back bushes, trees and tidying the area to improve the vision of passers-by. Local police bemoaned the site – known locally as The Valley – because of its easyto-access nature and its hiding

places which were allegedly being taken advantage of by yobs, so it’s hoped the measures – carried out this week – will help allay the danger. Coun Charlie Wraith said: “Waiting up to six months for work was not possible as it’s simply too long and motorists have effectively been sitting ducks. “We’re lucky in a way that only vehicles have sustained damage, not their drivers or passengers. By carrying out work to the fencing and sprucing up the adjacent access, it’s given us better sightlines which will hopefully allow people to identify those responsible should this continue.” Nearby CCTV has also been put in place to warn teens from continuing their behaviour, which Coun Wraith said was a ‘miracle’ no-one had been injured. Sergeant Richard Wilson, whose policing team is based on nearby Manor Road, said officers are dealing with the issue ‘robustly’. “The council and police approached Network Rail simultaneously regarding this as it’s something this is something that’s caused a lot of public concern as it’s dan-

gerous and clearly needs to be stopped,” he added. “There are a lot of hiding places on both sides of the former bridge, but in particularly on The Valley side. “We’re continuing to monitor this and patrols are being done.” A spokesman for Network Rail added: “Safety is our top

priority and we are committed to working with Barnsley Council and South Yorkshire Police to help them tackle this issue. “Due to the relatively high cost and the necessity of road closures to implement, we estimate that a realistic timescale for implementation would be within six months.”

BATTING ON: Dickie Bird with St Helen’s Father Peter Needham and his associates Gloria Hesford, Jennifer Hulme, Sue Burton and Pat Padgett.

Church bowled over by Dickie’s support

A PROJECT to help renovate a historic church could receive a boost after local legend Dickie Bird donated prizes to be auctioned off. Father Peter Needham, vicar of St Helen’s Church, Athersley, is aiming to renovate the venue after he noticed that some of the concrete on the outside of the building was degrading. He has since campaigned for funds and was successful in building a cavalry cross as a memorial for the local community. “The church has what we call ‘concrete cancer’,” said Fr Needham. “Extensive renovations need to be done to make sure that the building is safe. We have internal damp issues which need sorting out and an antique altarpiece which needs to be preserved for future generations. “All this work we estimate will cost around £50,000. We have applied for funding and are trying to raise as much as possible at the church.” Former cricket umpire Dickie donated a signed cricket bat, painting and one of his books – Dickie Bird’s Britain. “I am from the parish,” he added. “I remember the church from when I was younger so I was more than happy to donate some items that could help bring in some money.”

Clampdown Clampdown on on drink-drivers drink-drivers DRINK-DRIVERS in Barnsley will be targeted as a matter of priority for patrolling road policing officers as a direct result of residents’ concerns, the Chronicle can reveal. It comes after a survey of more than 2,000 residents revealed it was the issue people wanted police to tackle the most, followed by drivers who use their mobile phones while behind the wheel and those who use antisocial and illegal vehicles such as offroad bikes, particularly in residential zones. The bid to clamp down on the issue will result in extra patrols being carried out in a bid to snare drink-drivers. Inspector Jason Booth, who heads up the roads policing

unit, said: “We want to tackle the issues that mean the most to our communities alongside our day-to-day work of disrupting and denying criminals the use of our road network. “Since we have been gathering views, we have implemented a dedicated traffic car that patrols identified hotspot areas, carried out regular operations in partnership with the DVSA and partners and also held our first Operation Duxford, which focused on speeding.” Almost half of the respondents identified drink-driving as their biggest concern, closely followed by 38 per cent who want mobile phone use to be stopped. However, complaints have been received by the police

that not enough is being done to combat long-running speeding concerns – another identified area for improvement – resulting in the force receiving criticism following several deaths in Barnsley this year. “We carry out regular patrols and operations to tackle various driving offences and will continue to do so, as one life taken is one too many,” Insp Booth said. “One of the key things is speeding, so we’ve been implementing things such as community-led speed watch schemes across Barnsley which have been a real success.” Given the continuing scale of complaints regarding off-road bikes, police based at the

which was held at New Lodge Working Men’s Club and included tombolas, a raffle, sweet stall and more. Gavin said: “We raised an amazing £695.96 and had an amazing donation of £100 from the New Lodge WMC. “Me and Steve couldn’t thank everyone involved enough, it was a great afternoon.”

n A YOUNG girl rubbed shoulders with Prime Minister Boris Johnson after winning an art competition. Gaia Thompson, nine, of Tankersley, entered the competition – Your NHS – which was supported by the Department of Health and Social Care and the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System. The competition invited schoolchildren in the area to get creative to mark £57.5m of government investment to build new GP surgeries, nurse-led clinics and pharmacies across the region. Gaia, a Tankersley St Peter’s Church of England pupil, beat other entrants across South Yorkshire and was crowned the winner for her design. As part of her prize, she was invited to 10 Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister along with the other nine winners from across the country. The panel of judges were impressed by Gaia’s imaginative and inspiring winning entry and particularly enjoyed how Gaia’s drawing looks into the future by imagining robot doctors, floating chairs and disappearing injury sprays. In addition to meeting the Prime Minister, Gaia also won a £500 art voucher for the school. She said: “I really love drawing and it was so much fun imagining what my local hospital could look like in the future. The NHS makes me feel safe and loved because it helps all of us so much when we are sick.” Headteacher Jayne Proctor-Blain added: “The competition was a great opportunity to get our children thinking about the NHS.”

CONSTRUCTION has started on the final phase of a Redbrook housing estate. The Oakland Gardens estate, off Wilthorpe Road, was set to comprise 301 dwellings on private land, but further applications lodged with Barnsley Council increased the number of homes to 326 – including 14 built on public open space.

Family-friendly disco raises cash for Hospice

town’s six neighbourhood hubs have been tasked with identifying worst-hit areas in their local patches which will pave the way for more action days in the warmer months. Sergeant Richard Wilson, who is based in Cudworth, told the Chronicle that Barnsley’s better placed to cope than it has been in recent years. “We’re not powerless and we have more options at our disposal now, helped by the team,” he added. “We completely understand just how problematic, and dangerous, off-road bikers have been in Barnsley but residents can be assured that South Yorkshire Police are taking this very seriously given just how many complaints we receive.”

Hospital staff survey shows improvement

WORKERS at Barnsley Hospital have reported improvements in staff motivation and pay, job satisfaction, recognition and feeling valued in an annual NHS survey. The survey gathers views on staff experience at work in key areas such as equality, health and well-being, morale, quality of care, staff engagement and team working. This year’s final response rate to the survey in Barnsley was 72.8 per cent, an improvement when compared to last year’s response rate which was around 50 per cent. Steve Ned, director of workforce, said: “We thank everyone who found time to complete the survey – we know it’s been tough to find time to complete surveys in the last few weeks. We work hard here in Barnsley to provide quality care against increasing demands and the survey results are important because they are used to improve care for patients and working conditions for all staff.”

PRIORY MAN: Custodian Darrell Haywood in the grounds at the Priory.

Heritage trail plans for priory CLUNIAC ruins and a historic mill are looking to become a heritage trail together to boost both locations as tourist attractions. Monk Bretton Priory, off Grange Lane, has always been a venue of note for history buffs but the 12th century ruins are set back from the main road and can be easily missed. Across the road from the priory is a half-timbered mill – originally built in around 1150 with parts of the building dating back to around 700 AD – which was raised by an architect in the late 1980s. The building was brought back into public use and is

now open as a pub – known as Mill of the Black Monks – but both the architect who helped bring the building back to life and the Friends of Monk Bretton Priory want more to be done. Malcolm Lister, who owns Mill of the Black Monks, said he believes it should be a heritage site and it could link up with Monk Bretton Priory to form a heritage trail. “This building means everything to me,” said Malcolm, 82, who was born in Darton. “It would be great to get a sort of historical trail up and running for both sites. It could be something educational where schools could come and learn about the history of both.

“The young people of Barnsley who don’t think they know about history can see it right on their doorstep.” Emma and Lee Bailey, who run the Mill of the Black Monks, on Grange Lane, said they are both keen on raising awareness of its history. “It’s like a museum with a pulse the mill – we are engulfed in history here,” said Lee. “There’s a lot more elsewhere that people go to visit but they can just come here.” Darrell Haywood, who is the custodian of Monk Bretton Priory, said all members of the friends’ group are ‘enthusiastic about getting more people onto the site’.

“Ever since the friends’ group was sent up, we have always been about making people more aware of the history of the priory,” he said. “We are lucky in Barnsley to have this wonderful monastic building and then there’s one across the road with the name that tells it all. We want to get people coming out and coming as families to see both sites.” Chairman of the Friends of Monk Bretton Priory, Ian Stevenson, added: “There aren’t many places like both the priory and the Mill of the Black Monks. “It would be great to get a trail or something like that going.”

Capital to capital punishment puts Elliott in the saddle... A MAN who signed up for a 300-mile cycling event despite not owning a bike will ride from London to Paris in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society. Elliott Wroe, 22, wanted to help raise money for the charity after his aunt was diagnosed with dementia aged just 53. “I wanted to go all out and do something extreme,” said Elliott, a policeman previously of Cudworth. “I didn’t even own a bike when I signed up but I thought it was the most extreme thing on the Alzheimer’s Society website and decided just to go for it.” The ride will begin in London and will see the riders travel through Kent to Dover before heading across the channel to begin riding from Calais to Paris. Once in the French capital, the riders will have the chance to see the final stint of the Tour de France which is famously set around Paris’ notable landmarks including the Eiffel Tower. The entire trip will take three days. “I signed up and bought a bike really soon after,” said Elliott. “I’m doing the race with my brotherin-law, Will, and we have been trying

to train together because neither of us has any experience with long-distance cycling, but we are looking forward to the challenge of it all. “It is really tough to train for the event because in the police, I work 12-hour shifts, so it’s hard to gather the motivation to get up and spend a few hours on my bike when it’s dark outside and I’m tired. “There’s a lot of time spent on the bikes because I have to build up the stamina to spend all day on one, which isn’t the most comfortable thing in the world.” Elliott is hoping to raise £1,000 and has ideas to help his fundraising efforts. “I want to do a raffle and a non-stop cycle to help raise money – we have to raise a minimum of £600, but I want to push it further to raise more money. “I want to find a cure because dementia is a horrible disease and I want to help make a difference to other families who may be struggling with it.” The ride will take place from July 15-19.

Concern as town’s job creation record lags behind big-city rivals FINANCIAL experts have warned that low employment growth figures for Barnsley highlight a ‘worrying disparity’ with its larger neighbours. Last year, according to Ernst and Young’s annual regional economic forecast, 400 jobs were created in Barnsley – an increase of 0.4 per cent. The firm forecasts that this year employment rates will continue to grow by another 0.5 per cent – with further growth of 0.3 per cent a year until 2023 – which starkly contrasts its predictions for ‘leading cities’ such as Leeds and Sheffield, which will see job growth at three times that rate. This, claims the firm, shows the increasingly unbalanced nature of the UK economy. While the government has pledged its commitment to ‘levelling-up’ areas of the country, years of austerity have curtailed this agenda – with the most significant impacts of spending cuts felt in areas such as Barnsley in which budgets were already squeezed. “It’s great to see Leeds continue to perform well and

capitalise on the expansion of the media and digital sectors in the region,” said Suzanne Robinson, Ernst and Young’s managing partner for Yorkshire. “However, the top-down approach doesn’t appear to be working. “And, although recent announcements like the green-lighting of HS2 should certainly help with infrastructure and connectivity, we need a different approach if we are to truly ‘levelup’ the economy. “What’s needed is a blend of public and private sector investment to spread the wealth right across the region for the benefit of everyone.” More positively, gross value added (GVA) – the value of goods and services produced in an area – grew by 2.2 per cent in Barnsley last year, well ahead of the national average of 1.2 per cent and Yorkshire and Humber average of 0.7 per cent. The borough’s GVA is expected to expand by 1.2 per cent in the next three years, which is slightly behind the UK average of 1.6 per cent but level with the rest of

Yorkshire and Humber. Coun Robert Frost, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: “We continue as a council to place emphasis on the regeneration of our borough – working with government, businesses and partners to invest in Barnsley. “We are seeing positive improvements in a number of areas, including business stock growth, job creation and pay growth in the borough. “We continue to address challenges around new business start-ups, self-employment and skills-building, while also investing in future projects which will extend the recent positive trends. “These include development of the Digital Campus, investment in business productivity, property investment, development of the M1 junction 36 Dearne Valley economic growth corridor, town centre regeneration linking with the Stronger Towns Fund and Principal Towns investment. “We will continue to promote the message that Barnsley is open for business.”

THE LIBRARY in Dodworth will be the first in the borough to receive a facelift despite plans to introduce a temporary post office in the building. The renovations to the library, on High Street, Dodworth, were announced as part of the council’s Future Library Strategy, which sets out how libraries around the borough will be improved to meet demand. Residents, local groups and partners will be asked to provide their feedback on the design and requirement of each library within their area to determine the what work needs to be carried out. The library will receive its share of a £1m grant which was provided to help renovate each of the libraries in the town. The news comes after it was announced that a temporary post office would be set up within Dodworth Library until a permanent home becomes available. The village has been without a post office for

more than six months following the closure of the shop further down High Street. Preparations for a permanent post office are underway on the site of Dodworth Discounts, also on High Street. “I am happy that Dodworth will soon be getting a post office and that the library will be receiving renovations,” said Dodworth councillor, Coun Neil Wright. “The library is such an integral part of the village that it will be nice to see it getting the love it deserves. “However, I am working to ensure that the temporary post office will not close while renovations to the library are underway. “Both services are vital to the people of Dodworth and to remove the post office after it has taken to long to bring the service back is not what I would want. “I am currently trying to ensure that the post office will be available while the renovations to the library takes place.”

Rainbow campaign A FOOTBALL team for girls played wearing rainbow badges to promote equality within the game. Skillz are for Girls (SAFG) is a football club which was created by former footballers and coaches with Barnsley Ladies’ under-13s team, Craig Marsh and Chris White. They wanted to help girls to develop an interest in football and to change the perception that it is a ‘male’ dominanted sport. The team was created in 2018 and has grown from 12 to 37 players. Last month the team played wearing a rainbow badge to support LGBT players as part of the Football vs Homophobia initiative. The scheme has been introduced to both professional and grassroots football clubs as well as fans and aims to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity so that everyone can enjoy the game of football. The scheme was launched in 2010 and uses February as the ‘month of action’ to promote the cause.

Why Don't You have a Will? For many of us, death, or the prospect of death is something they would rather not think about. For these reasons we put off making a Will, however, someone will be left with the stress of sorting out your estate and will need to take care of your property and affairs, therefore making a Will should be viewed as a positive. If you don’t have a Will, your money, property and possessions will be shared out according to the law instead of your wishes. By making a Will you will be able to retain some control into what happens to your estate after you have died. There are many misconceptions about the law in respect of your assets and what happens when you pass away without leaving a Will: - Children from a first marriage may not receive anything - Unmarried couples are not automatically entitled to any part of their partners estate. There are benefits you can gain by creating a Will, and seeking legal advice when creating one: - It will give you peace of mind - It will allow you to decide who will be in charge of your affairs after you’re gone

Consistency crucial to Reds’ hopes GERHARD STRUBER admits Barnsley are in a ‘very difficult’ position after their 2-0 home loss to Cardiff City left them bottom of the Championship and seven points adrift of safety. The head coach also questioned his team’s attitude and said, in the second half, they played like a youth team. Struber said: “Honestly, it is difficult. We have a gap of seven points. We don’t look at the table, we have to bring a better performance in the next game (away to QPR on Saturday). “That is the only thing that can have an impact. It is not easy for us, that is clear. But we have to show the fans a different face of Barnsley FC. “The pressure is high. The second half was a professional team against a youth team. “My team can play very

well but also we sometimes have big problems to bring a performance that can keep us in the league.” Cardiff netted twice in less than two minutes through Will Vaulks and Callum Paterson midway through the second half, in which Struber was very disappointed with the performance. “We showed our fans two faces in this game. The first half was not a special performance

but it was okay. We knew the opponent is very difficult with many long balls and they won, especially in the aerial duel, every header against us. “But in the second half we completely forgot our plan. My boys forgot to play with good possession and to play quickly. “When we play in the same style as Cardiff we have no chance because we don’t have the players for that

style. Cardiff showed us the energy the game needs, we could not win second balls or have control of the ball. “After the goals, we did not have the right attitude to come back. The energy after the first goal was completely zero. It is a disappointing moment for me and my whole team. We have such big ups and downs in our performances and I have no answer for that.”

BARNSLEY’S Bethany England helped England to a 1-0 win over Japan in their second SheBelieves Cup match in New Jersey. The 25-year-old Chelsea Ladies player, who comes from Kingstone, started Sunday’s game, which was settled by a goal from Ellen White. England appeared as a substitute in her country’s opening SheBelieves Cup clash with USA.
