MP: Rail plan off the pace MP FOR Barnsley Central and Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis has branded the continued use of outdated trains as ‘not good enough’ as Northern Rail pushes back plans for an update to 2020. The rail firm had promised that the old fleet of Pacer trains would be replaced by the end of the year, but following a discussion with the Department of Transport, the Pacers’ lifespan has been extended by a year after technical issues arose during the manufacture of the replacements. It’s claimed Pacers are outdated in design and do not comply with disability regulations which came into effect in 2019 while they are noted for being literal ‘buses-on-rails’ by angry commuters. Speaking about the proposed plans to push back replacement trains, Dan Jarvis said: “Yet again, rail passengers in this region are being treated like second-class citizens. “Northern Rail promised that Pacer trains, which should have been consigned to a transport museum long ago, would be out of service by the end of the year – but now we know that they will continue to run in South Yorkshire well into 2020.” He said it was ‘yet more proof’ of a widening gulf between transport

spend in the North and in the SouthEast. “While commuters in London have Crossrail coming, here in the North, people face travelling on what are essentially old buses on rails, at speeds that average 35mph,” he added. “Northern Rail needs to accept that this simply isn’t good enough and commit, as a matter of urgency, to serious discussions as to how and when passengers can be compensated for this litany of failures.” Local parish councillor Kevin Osborne said: “As a Barnsley commuter I have the misfortune of having to use Northern Rail on a regular basis. “This latest announcement regarding Pacer units adds more weight to the argument that Northern Rail deserve pulling from the franchise. “Promises mean everything, but after they are broken, sorry means nothing.” David Brown, managing director of Northern, said: “As a result of delays in the delivery of our new trains from manufacturer CAF, we have sought approval for a small number of Pacers to operate on a handful of routes in South/West Yorkshire and the North West for a few weeks into 2020.”

INBRIEF... Fire chiefs defend £7,900 overspend FIRE bosses have defended an overspend which they said was a result of firefighters claiming back fuel costs due to them temporarily being moved to stations across South Yorkshire. The £7,900 shortfall was discussed by members of the South Yorkshire Fire Authority in Barnsley on Monday, which resulted in bosses admitting that the figure would not be clawed back in the next financial year. Assistant Chief Fire Officer Alex Johnson said: “Increased activity means an increase in costs as officers have had to move from station to station as cover.”

It’s g’day Sports as JD opens up BIG-NAME retailer JD Sports has become the first retailer outside the market to open at the multi-million pound Glass Works shopping complex in Barnsley town centre. Britain’s biggest sports fashion retailer will occupy a 4,023sq ft unit on a ten-year lease and will offer lines from brands exclusive to its nationwide stores. It’s the latest positive move for the council-funded regeneration after Barnsley Market opened last year and was followed by Library @ the Lightbox and Falco Lounge opening earlier this summer. Market Kitchen, an independent food court, will open its doors later this month, but JD Sports’ arrival is a particular milestone in the town centre’s redevelopment, according to council leader Sir Steve Houghton. “This is an exciting development,” he said. “The redevelopment of the town centre is really progressing and we’re already starting to see positive results.

“It’s not only what we’re doing as a council with The Glass Works that is transforming our town. We’ve seen a raft of new independent businesses open across the town helping us to diversify our offer. “Barnsley is becoming a hotbed for investment and that’s been proven with the amount of new businesses we’ve seen open their doors.” Another big name, Sports Direct – including its streetwear and fashion arm USC – has also signed up to The Glass Works alongside Coffee Boy, a modern coffee shop selling specialist food and rink. Sports Direct – which will move from its current location on Cheapside into the bigger store – is set to open in 2021 as The Glass Works nears its overall completion while Coffee Boy will open on Cheapside before Christmas. Sir Steve added: “Looking at Sports Direct it’s important to recognise this is not simply a

store moving from one premises to another – it’s a much bigger offer. “They’re bringing with them their USC clothing brand, which will be a real draw to shoppers. It will stock some of the big, well-known brands. It’s a doubling of their retail offer.”

Cabinet spokesman Coun Tim Cheetham added: “It’s an exciting time in our town centre as we head towards the busy Christmas shopping period. “Sports Direct is already a popular store in the town so it’s fantastic it will be moving into

a bigger space over two floors, bringing the popular USC with it. “Coffee Boy and JD Sports will add another great dimension to what we’re trying to achieve with the redevelopment of our town centre and will be welcome additions to Barnsley.”

Pounds pile up as interchange toilet turnstiles keep clicking PEOPLE who spent a penny in Barnsley Interchange have contributed more than £175,000 to the transport hub across the last five years. Income from the toilet turnstiles on Barnsley’s rail platforms and in the bus station has generated an average of £35,076 per year since 2014. That’s higher than that of Sheffield and Rotherham Interchanges – with the money reinvested into the interchange, according to data supplied following a Freedom of Information request sent to South Yorkshire

Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE). However, when pressed, a spokesman for the transport body could not give a full breakdown on where the money – totalling £175,383.20 from 2014 to 2019 – has been spent, only citing site maintenance and other improvements such as body cameras for staff. “Income generated by the use of toilet facilities at South Yorkshire Passenger Travel Executive (SYPTE) interchanges – including Barnsley interchange – is used to support the provision of toilets and

other facilities at interchanges and park and ride sites across South Yorkshire,” said the spokesman. “This includes paying for maintenance of all sites as well as developments like the introduction of body cameras used by Barnsley Interchange staff.” The revenue collected is slightly more than Sheffield’s total of £171,001 – although that facility is larger, with 30 stands to Barnsley’s 21 – and significantly higher than the similarly-sized Rotherham, which collected £142,365.82 across the same period.

New venue for event A HEALTH and well-being event for older people has changed venue due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’. The event will now take place at Houghton Road Community Centre, Thurnscoe from 10am-2pm tomorrow (Wednesday), having originally been scheduled for Dearne Lea Care Home on Park Road.

Fears of rise in wildlife crime as traps found

Shops plan

FOUR new retail units could be built in Dodworth under new plans submitted to Barnsley Council. Ron Ford wants to build the units on a site off Castle View, which also houses a supermarket and a car dealership. Planning documents show its current 44-space car park will be reduced to 27 in order to facilitate the units. Comments can be made on the council’s website until October 29.

BIG BACKING: Barnsley FC’s Ben Williams, Jordan Williams, Jacob Brown and Cauley Woodrow get their sleeping bags ready. PEOPLE are again being invited to swap their warm beds for sleeping bags and cold concrete to raise funds for youth homelessness. The Sleep Out event, run by charity Centrepoint alongside Barnsley Football Club, is now in its third year and has raised more than £30,000 on each occasion, with more than 100 local residents and businesses last year spending the night at Oakwell. Money raised from the event

triggered, tighten around any captured animal’s body, risking strangulation, wounding and death. A local conservation organisation, Ban Bloodsports on Yorkshire’s Moors, has waded into the row and told the Chronicle that Barnsley has seen a growing number of cases where ‘jaw-like’ traps have been set to snare native stoats, weasels, badgers and foxes. They have vowed to work alongside police across the borough – but urged Carlton Marsh’s visitors to keep an eye out and report anything untoward. “It’s a grim reality that wildlife is being wiped out by traps on some of Barnsley’s most popular moorlands,” spokesman Luke Steele told the Chronicle. “Walkers are in a unique position to help protect wildlife on the moors where suspected persecution is encountered. This may include finding injured animals in traps or snares, birds of prey which have been shot or individuals simply acting suspiciously.

“We urge those who visit sites to familiarise themselves with the signs of wildlife persecution, then come forward to the police with any incidents.” Operation Dunlin, which focuses on wildlife-related crime, is a long-running project across South Yorkshire and it is set to return to Barnsley after a previous action day saw more than 50 officers target beauty spots. However, local officers based in Cudworth have vowed to pay closer attention to Carlton Marsh by way of increased foot patrols during evening hours – a move backed by Coun Wraith. Assistant Chief Constable David Hartley, force lead for local policing and rural crime, said: “Crimes targeting wildlife such as badger baiting, deer coursing and lamping have a significant impact on rural communities and it is important that we tackle this head on. “We hope our work reassures our rural communities and shows our commitment to tackling crime.”

– which this year takes place on November 14 – goes directly towards services supporting homeless people in Barnsley, with more than 60 young people helped by the charity every day. Chloe Sykes, Centrepoint’s senior fundraising officer, said: “While Sleep Out doesn’t aim to replicate the reality of homelessness, taking part can help highlight just some of the difficulties faced by young people who face homelessness – sleeping on the floor, dealing with the cold and

the noise and then facing the next day with very little sleep. “The event only lasts one night but the money raised will have a huge ongoing impact on those who unfortunately find homelessness as their reality. “It will help to support vulnerable young people to gain the skills and confidence they need to move on into education, work and a home.” n For more information and to sign up, visit centrepoint.org.uk/ sleepout.

POLICE are set to pay more attention to an award-winning Barnsley nature reserve after animal traps were found nestled in its undergrowth, sparking fresh concerns over increasing reports of wildlife crime at the town’s beauty spots. Carlton Marsh was labelled as the ‘jewel in Barnsley’s crown’ by Yorkshire in Bloom judges – who have continually awarded the Shaw Lane site their most prestigious award in recent years. The reserve has come under the spotlight after photos of barbed wire-covered cages emerged. As well as a flourishing bird population including peregrine falcons, marsh harriers, buzzards and owls, its habitat has been popular with bats, rabbits, voles and roe-deer. But fears that wildlife crime – a growing concern for police at beauty spots across the borough including Langsett and Range Moor – is on the increase have been allayed by officers this week, who confirmed they will be putting on extra patrols at the site. Coun Charlie Wraith said: “We’ve had a lot of antisocial behaviour recently but Carlton Marsh, which is a wonderful place with a fantastic array of wildlife and cared for by a passionate group of volunteers, has always fared quite well. “People tend to respect wildlife but we need to stop this and make it very much an isolated incident. It’s clearly a very worrying find. As far as I’m aware only one trap was found, but I sincerely hope we have not attracted idiotic people who are wanting to destroy Carlton Marsh’s flourishing wildlife population.” Wire nooses, once

Back to the future BOOK OF THE MONTH for Eldon Street

ROOM ON THE BROOM STICKER BOOK By Julia Donaldson

RRP £5.99 OFFER PRICE £3.99

BARNSLEY Council is in discussions to purchase a ‘key building’ a stone’s throw away from the town centre’s public transport hub as part of a heritage-led makeover. Eldon Street is set to receive a share of £2m in funding which will be used to regenerate and improve its appearance. Given its close proximity to Barnsley Interchange, the £180m Glass Works scheme and Library @ the Lightbox, the council is in talks to buy 35 Eldon Street. The premises, which is currently a fish and chip shop, used to be a pub under the names of The Gatehouse, Devonshire Hotel and Beer Engine. Ruling cabinet members discussed the next steps of the proposal at a behind-closeddoors meeting last week, but the Chronicle understands part of the £2m pot – allocated as part of Historic England’s Historic High Streets Heritage Action Zone programme – will be used to purchase the building. Barnsley was awarded the funding after submitting a proposal that focuses on a heritage-led transformation of Eldon Street, which resulted in the building being identified due to its prominent location and its long history. “It’s still in its early stages but we’re in discussions,” council leader Sir Steve Houghton confirmed.

“We’re thrilled Eldon Street has been designated as a new Historic High Streets Heritage Action Zone. “This not only complements the investment that the council is making in improving Barnsley town centre, but enables local people to engage with their heritage and celebrate the new developments. “We’ve already worked with Historic England in Elsecar so know how positive and productive this partnership will be. “I have no doubt that this project will make an enormous difference to local people. “We also know how important it is to drive Barnsley forward and make it a better place to live for our future generations. “We’ve got some high and strong ambitions for the people of Barnsley and for the borough itself. “Our economic regeneration agenda is second to none, with huge developments in the town centre and a focus on creating jobs for the future.” Barnsley is one of 12 towns from Yorkshire which have been successful for the programme, which will regenerate high streets with a £95m cash injection. Eldon Street is seen as the epicentre for wider projects including the new Market Gate footbridge across the railway line, the nearby ‘Eastern Gateway’ site which

the council plans to purchase from NPower and the Courthouse digital campus on County Way. A council regeneration report said. “The new Market Gate pedestrian bridge will open up significant opportunities for not only investment in infrastructure, but also adjacent areas. “Providing an improved link between the sites and the interchange will encourage movement on this route and enhance connectivity to the town centre. “The interchange’s west exit (which leads to Eldon Street) is the first view of Barnsley town centre for many of the visitors arriving by public transport. “The regeneration delivered will bring more visitors and movement, making the gateway increasingly important. “It is vital to create a positive first impression of a high quality, welcoming and animated town centre and to clearly guide visitors to their further destinations. “At the exit, there are a number of streets leading to different parts of the town centre. The proposals look to create a clearer hierarchy of routes and improved signage. “The unique character of the area with its network of pedestrianised streets, ginnels and arcades and hub for independent businesses should be celebrated.”

Rent row Lantern Walk is a great way to raise funds for hospice continues MARKET traders in Barnsley have made a formal approach to have a rent reduction for part of the new Glass Works complex extended to all stallholders as their relationship with the council becomes increasingly tense. Traders met to discuss rents in response to a council decision to reduce costs for those on the first floor of the flagship market hall by 50 per cent, but to leave costs for those on the ground floor unchanged. They insist traders across the new complex are struggling from a combination of a new rent regime, extended opening hours and trading performance. Now they have pressed the council to come back with a response on its ‘intended actions in relation to rent reductions for all’, with a threat that if a response is not provided, traders will ‘continue with other avenues of protest’. One demonstration has already taken place. Barnsley Council says the decision on rents was made following consultation with traders. The Barnsley Group of the National Market Traders Federation claims traders on the ground floor who have not been subject to any rent reductions are ‘equally struggling to keep their businesses afloat’ with many traders openly reporting that they cannot continue to pay the rent at the full rate. “Traders are standing together in unity to protest to Barnsley Council to reduce rents by 50 per cent for all traders,” it said in a statement. n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

LANTERNS will light the way this Halloween as a group of 41 walkers remember a loved one. The group, aged from two to 55 years old, will take part in this year’s Barnsley Hospice Lantern Walk in memory of Rod Parkinson from Wombwell, who died of lung cancer in September 2018. Rod’s friend and colleague Sarah Tetley, of Darton, organised the group, who will walk the one-mile route round Locke Park on October 27 in his memory. Rod was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2016 and was cared for at Barnsley Hospice. His wife Helen and their children and grandchildren will join Sarah and her friends, family and work colleagues on the sponsored walk.

Sarah Tetley said: “Rod was a big family man and whenever I spent time with him, he would always share fond memories of his own children and grandchildren. They were the light of his life. “After his diagnosis, I saw first-hand the love and care Rod and his family received at the hospice.

“It’s such an amazing place that meant so much to him and his family. “I would urge others to sign up to the event which will be fun for all the family. “Everyone from babies in a pram to grandparents can all take part in a steady walk together. “It ticks all the boxes and we’re really looking forward to it.”

The walk will be led by Barnsley Percussion Ensemble Samba Band. Food and drink will be available, and fancy dress and trick or treating will be encouraged. Last year’s event raised more than £4,000. Martyn Hughes, events fundraiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “After the

success of last year’s event, it’s great to see so many people signing up to our family walk which will help us continue to provide first-class patient care for patients and families in Barnsley. “It’s a chance for families and friends to come together to celebrate the life of someone close to them, or simply to make special memories together. “We’d like to wish Sarah and the team the best of luck and thank them for their amazing support.” Entry is from 4pm for the fair and the walk will start at 5.30pm, with places costing £8 per person. Entry includes a lantern, goody bag and fundraising pack. To book your place on the walk, call 244244 or go to the Barnsley Hospice website.

A BENCH in Barnsley town centre has been removed after police deemed it to be the site of ‘significant’ antisocial behaviour. The bench outside Yorkshire Bank on Market Hill, was dismantled by council workmen last week. Wendy Lowder, executive director of communities at Barnsley Council, confirmed it had been monitored by South Yorkshire Police. “Due to this, a decision has been made through the Safer Neighbour Service to remove the bench,” she said. “We know antisocial behaviour can create problems for people visiting the town centre.”

New mums group funded A SUPPORT service will provide help to new mums in Barnsley thanks to a £50,000-a-year project funded by the Central Area Council. The perinatal service – a term which is used for a time which spans from pregnancy to a child’s first birthday – is run by Family Lives and has been launched in Kingstone, Central, Stairfoot, Worsbrough and Dodworth wards. The service, which launched in April, will run on a rolling contract and could last for three years, helping struggling mums who may be suffering from post-natal

depression or isolation in order to boost their emotional well-being. A progress report, delivered to the Central Area Council’s members on Monday, said: “The aim of the service is to provide support to mothers experiencing isolation and low level emotional well-being issues during the perinatal period, through the provision of volunteer home befriending visits, phone and peer-to-peer support. “A total of six volunteers have completed a three-day training course, and there are potentially 19 more to come.”

Super chance for talented netballer Megan A YOUNG netball player has successfully completed a trial to join Leeds Rhinos. Megan Atkinson, 17, is a level 3 sport student at Barnsley College who will train with the club every week as part of the Leeds Rhinos Futures Hub, which is designed to improve the athletes’ overall game by focusing on specific skills and technical training. Barnsley College has recently developed a partnership with Leeds Rhinos netball, part of the foundation run by the rugby league cub of the same name. The Rhinos, who will enter the UK’s highest-level netball competition Superleague in 2021, will use the state-of-the-art facilities at the Honeywell campus in Barnsley as a training hub. Megan said: “The college’s netball coach, Amy, mentioned that the college had developed a partnership with Leeds Rhinos and it gave the team an opportunity to trial for them. “I trialled in Bradford and

I was successful. Now I’m looking forward to starting and working on my skills, hopefully I can progress further into their academy system. “The college has helped me so much. I didn’t play netball until I came here and Amy’s been amazing. She’s put us all through our paces and I’ve learnt a lot. “Being part of the college’s netball team has opened up loads of development pathways and I’ve made some best friends through the sport.” Amy Horsfield, netball coach and sport tutor at Barnsley College, said: “Megan has been a brilliant asset to the college, both within the netball squad and academically. “She has grabbed every opportunity that has come her away. “Now with a successful trial for Leeds Rhinos, it shows her hard work and dedication is starting to pay off. This is only the beginning of Megan’s journey and I am excited to see how far she goes.”

MP Dan’s praise for community-orientated charity BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis visited a community-orientated charity to meet volunteers and service users. Creative Recovery is a movement of people who share a core mission to use creativity to bring about social change, grow community spirit and boost well-being and recovery.

The small grass-roots charity is led by artists and is driven by the ideas and needs of the people and communities they serve. Creative Recovery supports individuals and families with experience of mental health, and/or drug and alcohol issues. Dan said: “Creative Recovery are

a fantastic, community-orientated Barnsley charity. “I really appreciated the opportunity to meet with dedicated volunteers who provide valuable help for people and families with mental health issues and drug and alcohol problems, challenging the stigma and offering practical support.”

Poor response to survey a concern for councillors A ‘WOEFUL’ response to a survey has posed questions as well as providing answers. Just 219 people replied to a bid for information on priorities for Penistone Area Council. And this prompted chairman Coun Robert Barnard to say: “It looks as though we are not getting our message to as many people as we need to.” However, council manager Elaine Equeall said the responses which did come in bore out the priorities already in place.

And she was pleased that replies came from across the area. The area council wanted to know people’s views on their list of priorities, which includes health and well-being, supporting young people, helping people connect, transport and supporting isolated and vulnerable people. The replies showed that issues such as green spaces, young people’s activities, health and well-being and helping the needy were high on the agenda. There was also

heavy focus on the local economy. The consultation was available online and in paper form and through parish and community magazines and newsletters. Special collection points were also set up to retrieve the answers. “After all that, just 219 responses,” said Ms Equeall. “But the geographical spread is good. We have reached the outlying areas, so we have done something right. More so than the last time this took place.

“The factors which scored highly bear out what we are already doing and it was an interesting exercise. But it’s intensive effort for a small return. “Perhaps this raises the question of the profile of the area council.” Coun Hannah Kitching said: “The response is woeful considering the number of homes there are.” But Coun Dave Griffin said: “Don’t be too despondent. The response is higher than for the previous consultation.”

A week in WAB history...

Crossing set to make way for footbridge 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 October 2017... October 3 Question Time coming to Barnsley BBC show Question Time is coming to Barnsley. The political debate show will be filmed in the town on December 14. Hosted by David Dimbleby, the show asks the public to set their questions to a panel of politicians and other influential figures. October 3 Jumble Lane could be no more after funding agreed for town centre footbridge NETWORK Rail has agreed to put £2m towards the cost of new footbridge in

the town centre if it is built by March 2019 – meaning Jumble Lane crossing (pictured right) will close. The idea to shut the town centre railway crossing and replace it with a pedestrian bridge was suggested when the town centre regeneration scheme was revealed in 2013. Negotiations have been ongoing between the council and Network Rail for several years and the project will move a step closer when councillors are asked to approve the £5m structure. However, the ruling cabinet will be told Network Rail has agreed to part fund the project, but on the condition the bridge is completed by March 31, 2019. The new bridge will act as a ‘gateway’ into the town,

taking people from Market Gate car park into the heart of the new £130m Glass Works scheme, meaning the level crossing would be closed to vehicles and pedestrians for good. October 5 Barrett to defend British title BOXER Robbie Barrett will aim to become just the second Barnsley man in history to successfully defend a British title when he fights in Manchester. Lightweight Barrett, from Darfield, pulled off a major upset by outpointing the previously unbeaten Scott Cardle in Glasgow earlier this year to claim the belt. The win earned him a place in the history books as only Barnsley’s third ever born-and-bred British champion.

He will make the first defence of his title tomorrow night, when he takes on Newcastle’s Lewis Ritson on the undercard of the Anthony Crolla vs Ricky Burns at the Manchester Arena - a show that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. If Barrett wins, he will become the second Barnsley fighter in the space of three weeks and only the second in history to defend a British title following Josh Wale’s knockout win over Don Broadhurst.

This was the WAB week...

All change at football club

IT’S been quite an eventful week for Barnsley FC. We waved goodbye to Daniel Stendel, and it was great that he took the time to thank his fans at the Garrison. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a manager who so regularly interacts with fans and it’s a shame to see him go. I wish Adam Murray all the best as he has been appointed as the interim manager. We need to get ourselves up that Championship table. You can now officially vote in the Barnsley Chronicle’s bonny baby competition. I have to say seeing how cute all this year’s contenders looked made me broody.

Kids grow so fast I want my daughter to slow down sometimes! Well done to everyone who took part and good luck to the top ten! The weather is changing and the days are getting darker earlier. It’s almost time for one of my favourite nights of the year, bonfire night! As much as I enjoy it, I know for dog and cat owners it can be stressful. There are several websites offering tips and advice on how to help your pet cope during these nights. I met a couple in Monk Bretton this week who have been subject

to the windows on their car and the living room being smashed. It’s sad that people behave like this and they don’t realise how their actions affect others. Speaking with them and hearing first hand how upset they were really did make my blood boil and it just makes me think how I much more angry I would be if it was my family member. People really do need to think before they act, because it’s just not on. I’m still finding my feet as the Chronicle’s Royston and district reporter. If you live in the area, please keep me in the loop with what’s happening and contact me on abk@barnsley-chronicle. co.uk or call 734715.

Local music stars become college kids

AN INTIMATE town centre venue was turned ‘into Wembley’ as The Sherlocks – who have shared a stage with artists such as Liam Gallagher, Kaiser Chiefs and The Libertines – played an unplugged set for local fans. The Barnsley Chronicle arranged for the Boltonupon-Dearne band to perform an uplifting set of acoustic reworkings of songs from second album ‘Under Your Sky’ alongside their most recognisable hits. One youngster remarked, ‘it’s like Wembley in here’ as he entered the 144-seat Electric Theatre, a Barnsley College venue off Eastgate near its flagship Old Mill Lane site. And the seven-song set from the local lads – who have recently returned from a festival appearance in South Korea – made the venue feel almost as mammoth as the London stadium, the gathered students clearly impressed by seeing the world-conquering musicians in such an intimate venue which was almost full to the rafters. The band opened with ‘Dreams’, the fifth track on the new album released eralier this month – frontman Kiaran Crook hopefully singing ‘we’re all dreamers by design’ and likely inspiring those in the audience with musical aspirations. Drummer Brandon Crook, 26, told the Chronicle the

gig was a welcome change from touring the world and huge festival crowds. “It’s nice to play in Barnsley and see that people here still care,” said Brandon, who kept the pace with a shaker in one hand and a tambourine in the other. “If us four can do it, literally anyone who’s playing music can do it. “We were only messing about in a garage playing songs a few years ago. Anybody can do it.” By the time of penultimate song ‘NYC (Sing It Loud)’, Kiaran and the band had fully enraptured the young crowd, the sweetness of his voice playing off his bandmates’ backing vocals and delicately strummed acoustic guitars. He said before the band’s last song, their breakout hit ‘Chasing Shadows’, that the four rarely got the chance to play in Barnsley any more but it had ‘been a joy’ – before pausing to tell the gathered students to ‘study hard’. Immediately after the performance the four were seated at a nearby table, in high spirits as they joked with fans, took photographs and signed CDs, records, posters and the occasional coaster. The performance also gave opportunities for second year student technicians at the college, who were responsible for the sound.

Ross Hooley, programme manager, said: “It’s really exciting for the students who have got a chance to help out. “We’ve said we’ll look at getting more stuff like this, real-life acts coming in. “It’s great we can get that calibre of artists to come to the college.”

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.
