The Tour is back in town BARNSLEY has been included as a host town in this year’s Tour de Yorkshire cycling race which pumped more than £60m into the economy in 2019. It will be the third successive year the town’s played a role in the prestigious event, which returns on April 30 and finishes on May 3. The town centre will host stage three, which ends in Huddersfield on Saturday May 2. And crowds are set to flock to the start outside Barnsley Town Hall as seen in previous years. From there racers will head to Worsbrough, Stainborough, Hood Green, Thurgoland, Penistone, Thurlstone, Oxspring and Millhouse Green. People are set to find out more about what’s available for them to get involved with across Barnsley, and the council encouraged them to join the celebrations on the day at visitor attractions and events located across the borough. Coun Dave Leech, who is championing cycling on the local authority’s behalf,

added: “We’ve seen before just how well-received the Tour de Yorkshire has been by residents in the town and there’s good reasons for this as thousands of people come together to take part in some way. “The race also has a knock-on effect on the amount of people we see out on their bikes – children absolutely love getting involved in the sport and that has many added benefits, whether reducing air pollution or simply getting more active.” The Tour de Yorkshire has also had a significant benefit to the county in terms of monetary gain and exposure to the world, generating an estimated £60m for the economy in 2019 with much of that filtering down locally to locations which held either a start or finish. Peter Dodd, commercial director of tourism body Welcome to Yorkshire, revealed that Barnsley would host the stage at a route unveil held in Leeds last Friday. He added: “An estimated 1.9 million people lined last year’s routes and we’re expecting this year’s

television. More than 28m viewers saw what Yorkshire has to offer last year, for example. “This year’s includes 160 locations, 48 of which

are new to the race, but Barnsley had to be included as it’s shown for the last three years just how well-received it’s been by its residents.”

AMBITIOUS plans for regenerating The Civic theatre are set to be unveiled. Over the next four years, the historic building on Eldon Street, open in its current state since 2009, will be refurbished and developed.

Plan spells a new use for old pub ONE of the final pieces of the puzzle in the long-running redevelopment of Goldthorpe could be found, if planning permission is granted to turn the disused Goldthorpe Hotel into apartments. An application has been lodged with Barnsley Council’s planning department to convert the pub, an Edwardian-style building which closed in 2009, into ten apartments. The large building on Doncaster Road, a hive of activity in the 1970s when pit workers from the nearby colliery would frequent its three bars, has since been a site for vandalism and anti-social behaviour. An application previously approved in 2011 stated the former pub was ‘vacant and in a state that requires urgent repair’. But Goldthorpe councillor May Noble said this was allowed to lapse, sparking this new application by the Sheffield-based Dunstan Levine Partnership. “If they improve the outside of the building and put some good-quality flats in there, with good tenants, I wouldn’t have a problem with it,” said Coun Noble. “If they refurbish the building and clean up the area around it,

I would welcome it, but it does depend on the type of tenants they get in as well. “Goldthorpe is synonymous with cheap rents, that’s why people move in. “I’d love to see more footfall in Goldthorpe. “We don’t want derelict pubs sat on every corner, we’ve got to have everything either working again or knocked down. “It’s a shame when one closes and goes into a state of disrepair, but people don’t go into pubs now the same way they used to. “No one goes down that end of Goldthorpe and the pub became a target for vandalism.” A design and access statement submitted with the application said: “This proposal seeks to create high-quality residential units commensurate with the proposed use and we believe this will assist in the general improvement of aspect and amenity of the surrounding area.” Goldthorpe’s redevelopment gathered momentum in 2015, when plans were passed for the new Goldthorpe Primary School – opened the following year following compulsory purchase orders issued on properties on Main Street – and the demolition of

one half of the run-down Beever Street. Further development took place on former colliery land on Kingsmark Way. And last year the town was earmarked as a potential site for an ambitious new Dearne Valley railway station which could offer connections to Sheffield and Leeds within 15 minutes and London in just over an hour-anda-half. If granted, the planning application will see the Goldthorpe Hotel converted into four one-bedroom apartments and six two-bedroom apartments. The derelict pub sits on a 1,085 square metre site, which would house parking facilities. It is not expected that the appearance of the pub will change, aside from new entrance doorways and additional windows. John Hays, of Goldthorpe Development Group, said: “Anything is better than what it is now, it’s a terrible sight to see coming into Goldthorpe. “There’s a lot of memories there for people who used to work in the pits, but it looks bad now. It would be a bonus for it to be done up and would be good for the area.”

Striking mosaic gets pride of place AN ARTWORK created by the local community has found a permanent home in Goldthorpe Library. The striking mosaic, first shown at Dearne Community Arts Festival in September, was a collaboration between more than 250 residents and 15 community groups alongside artist Ruth Waterworth. They spent the summer months piecing together the ambitious mosaic, designed to reflect people’s pride in Barnsley and what it means to live in the borough. Coun Jenny Platts said: “It’s won-

derful to see that the community mosaic will be housed in one of our Barnsley libraries. “All the hard work and determination of the fantastic volunteers will be on display for our library users to enjoy. “I would encourage residents to join the celebrations and visit their local libraries to find out about other exciting events taking place throughout the year.” A celebration event was held on Wednesday, with special guest Ian McMillan unveiling the mosaic.

Fall figures on the rise COUNCILLORS have discussed ways to reduce the number of pensioners suffering falls – after figures revealed more than 1,200 over 65s were admitted to Barnsley Hospital in a year. Official figures for 2017/18 show 2,922 people per 100,000 had to be admitted, equating to 1,302. A council report said: “The figures are an

increase on the previous financial year’s 2,815 per 100,000. “If the trend in Barnsley continues, it is set to rise for 2018/19 while other areas across the country have maintained a consistent number. “During the winter the likelihood of falls increases due to older people being less active which increases mobility issues.”

Trains ‘for people not profit’ THE MP for Barnsley East has called for Northern Rail to be stripped of its franchise amid growing complaints of ‘unacceptable’ services. Stephanie Peacock MP said she wants to ‘voice the growing frustration felt by many travellers’ due to ‘outdated trains and cancelled or delayed services’. Current Northern franchise holder, Arriva Rail North, is facing calls from both the public and MPs for the franchise to be taken away. Ms Peacock (right), who has also pressed the government on spending differences

across the country with investment in London transport doubling while spending per head in Yorkshire and the Humber has fallen. She said: “For far too long Northern Rail have let travellers down. Passengers have been forced to endure overcrowded, delayed and cancelled train journeys. “The trains from Barnsley stations to Leeds and Sheffield are so old and decrepit they belong in museums. I urge the government to take away their franchise. We need train companies that are run for the people that use them not profit.”

Crime clampdown ‘a success’ A FOUR-DAY operation which saw police flood Barnsley town centre to crack down on antisocial behaviour including drug abuse has been hailed as a success. Operation Barossa, an intelligence-led scheme which aimed to tackle the misuse of drugs and criminality in the town centre, saw a marked increase in presence and stop and searches carried out by patrolling officers. More than 40 people were stop-searched, while dispersal orders – which ban people engaging in antisocial behaviour from entering the town centre – were handed out to more than a dozen offenders. The recently-upgraded CCTV cameras within the town centre, now continuously monitored by operators, were cited as a key reason in why Barossa was a success. Sgt Stephanie Coverley said: “We are committed to making Barnsley a safer, more enjoyable place to visit. “We will continue to use our powers to send out the message that antisocial behaviour and drugs will not be tolerated. “Over the four days, officers focused their attention on Peel Square and the pedestrianised precinct following concerns from businesses and members of the public. “I would like to thank those

ON THE STREET: Police horses were involved in Operation Barossa. who stopped to speak to our officers and thanked them for their work and what we are doing as it means a lot.” It was the second time the operation – borne out of concerns raised by businesses and from shoppers’ surveys – took place in the town centre

and more prolonged spells of presence have been promised. Spice – a former legal high – was high on officers’ radars and one 32-year-old man was found in possession of the drug after a CCTV trawl revealed he had attempted to conceal a package.

According to police figures, just 20 incidents of spice abuse were reported in Barnsley town centre in 2017, something which grew to 136 last year, leading to a public space protection order (PSPO) to be widened and extended until 2022. A police spokesperson added: “We focused our attention on the Peel Square areas following concerns from businesses and members of the public. “The presence of the officers resulted in a significant reduction in antisocial behaviour. “The CCTV cameras within the town centre have recently been upgraded and are continuously monitored by skilled operators. “These operators feed directly into our neighbourhood team officers and this realtime information enables them to respond quickly to incidents of antisocial behaviour or suspected drug dealing. “While a few individuals displayed their unhappiness at our officers being in the town centre by spitting at their cars, the majority of people stopped to talk to officers, thanking them and sharing their appreciation.” n To report antisocial behaviour or crime, call 101 or 999 in an emergency. You can also report incidents by emailing safer@barnsley.gov.uk.

Park yourself and enjoy funny and poignant play A PLAY based on the true story of a woman who lived in a front garden for 15 years will be parking up at The Lamproom. The Lady in the Van, performed by The Yorkshireman Company, is the true story of Miss Shepherd – an eccentric old lady who parked herself in playwright Alan Bennett’s front garden. Initially, her stay was intended to be for three months, but she remained a permanent fixture for more than 15 years. The play chronicles the relationship between this foul-mouthed yet enigmatic woman and one of Britain’s most beloved writers. A film of the same name was released in 2015, with actress Maggie Smith playing the title role. A mix of funny and poignant, the play promises to provide a hilarious and heart-warming evening. The Lady in the Van speeds in to The Lamproom from March 12-14 at 7.30pm. For more information or to book tickets, please contact the box office on 200075 or on The Lamproom website.

New stock is needed for charity shops A CHARITY has issued an appeal for help due to three of its charity shops in Barnsley struggling to replenish stock. Age UK shops in the town centre, Cudworth and Wombwell all are in need of stock, with staff saying stock levels are ‘much lower than usual’ and that means there is a major impact on the funds available for the charity to provide local services to older people in Barnsley. Alec Olsen, Age UK fundraising and community relations co-ordinator said: “Because of the Age UK brand, people think we are the national charity, I can assure them that Age UK Barnsley is a local charity serving only the older people of Barnsley. “I appeal to people individually to give items, but also companies could set up donation points for their employees and we can work with them to make donating items easier.” For more information or to arrange a large item collection, contact Age UK Barnsley on 776820 or email enquiries@ ageukbarnsley.org.uk.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, January 21, 2020 –

Home where the heart is for Sean A LOCAL artist’s first solo exhibition in his hometown promises to show the ‘reality of Barnsley’. Titled Broth Tarn – after a private joke that’s since ‘got out of hand’ – the exhibition is the culmination of five years of photography by 28-year-old Sean O’Connell. Sean, who claims he’s not a photographer but someone who simply started carrying a camera around wherever he went, ended up getting work for fashion brands – including Burberry – after his photography of strangers in the street gained attention on social media platform Instagram. He says the opportunities were ‘pure coincidence’. “Instagram is really good for artists,” said Sean. “It’s how a lot of people get noticed now, and you can find people so much more easily. “But on the other side, artwork can lose something. You put something online, and that’s it, you forget about the actual physical printing or exhibition side.” The exhibition at The Civic had a similar element of chance. Sean, a graduate from Leeds College of Art, had got into the habit of keeping a camera in

his pocket when he returned to Barnsley just over a year ago. He began to document everything from people fighting in the street on nights out, to family members eating supper at home and people waiting for a bus. But it was a photo of Wombwell artist Jenny Beard which caught the eye of curators at The Civic. They got in touch, and the conversation came around to displaying Sean’s photography in the gallery. Sean said: “I had this idea to show the reality of Barnsley. “So whenever I’d go out I’d have a camera in my pocket, on nights out and things like that – that’s when you see all the weirdest stuff. “It’s cool, because when people see someone taking photos in the street, they think they’re a bit weird, they don’t really understand what’s going off. “Then you look at the framed work, and you suddenly get it. “I personally prefer the taking of the photo, but I’m pleased with the exhibition and I’ve had a lot of messages from people. “I don’t think I’ll make a living out of it, it’s always going to be a hobby. “I’ll keep documenting things,

and making little books and maybe have another exhibition. “This is a bit of a showcase. “I wanted to show all my stuff off. If I did another it would be more of a selection of images on a theme. “It’s leaving something behind. When I’m gone, my photos will still be here.” Alongside around 50 photos, the exhibition also features three mannequins wearing Sean’s old work clothes – he’s been a manual labourer and a screen printer among other jobs – and a collection of old Barnsley Chronicle bills showing headlines from the last five years. While he admits he couldn’t wait to leave, Sean said coming back to Barnsley has introduced him to another side of the town he didn’t fully appreciate until he moved away. “It feels a bit more like an underground scene in Barnsley with artists, musicians and bands,” he said. “But everything’s just getting a lot better. “I think it’s because there’s not a lot else to do. “Everyone’s bored of going out every weekend to the same pubs.”

Devolution booster BARNSLEY is finally set to receive its share of funding after a South Yorkshire devolution deadlock was at last broken following a two-year stand-off. The district’s four councils and Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis, who is also Barnsley Central MP, agreed on a way forward and received backing from Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. Sheffield and Rotherham have wanted a full South Yorkshire devolution deal to be implemented, but Barnsley and Doncaster want the group to be amalgamated into a ‘One Yorkshire’ region, encompassing a much wider area. However, while Barnsley remains committed to the ultimate Yorkshire-wide goal, the stand-off was ended when all local authority leaders agreed the ‘interim’ South Yorkshire devolution. A statement issued jointly by Mayor Jarvis, Sheffield’s Julie

Dore, Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones, Rotherham’s Chris Read and Barnsley Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said all parties were pleased and hailed the news – revealed on Wednesday – as a ‘significant step forward’. “We’re pleased to announce that the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has confirmed he will be working with us to progress devolution,” it added. “Subject to the devolution deal being advanced to a positive conclusion, he has also agreed to progress discussions on the role and functions of a committee of leaders from across Yorkshire, based on the existing Yorkshire Leaders’ Board. “All South Yorkshire councils will have the opportunity to join any full Yorkshire devolution arrangement if they choose to. “We will be considering a paper at the Mayoral Combined Authority meeting on January 27 and, subject to final agreement at that meeting, we will be

launching a public consultation on the proposals. This represents a significant step forward in securing additional powers and resources for our region.” An independent economic study has shown a One Yorkshire devolution deal could deliver economic benefits worth £30bn a year, or £5,400 per person locally. In April last year, a letter was sent by Barnsley, Sheffield, Doncaster and Rotherham leaders asking for devolved powers to be unlocked in the region. It said: “We are all clear that we should and will actively support each other in the achievement of our individual devolution ambitions. Each council has the right to make its own choices about its devolution arrangements, including the right to join, or not to join a wider Yorkshire grouping from the outset.” The letter contained the requirement that it did not rule out Barnsley and Doncaster joining a Yorkshire-wide devolution arrangement later.

Holiday lovers – and TV stars A BARNSLEY family featured in a Channel Five documentary say being picked was a ‘once-in-alifetime experience’ – although they admit having cameras follow them around on holiday was a little strange. Newly-weds Lisa and Jamie Green, and Lisa’s children Millie and Sam, were picked from thousands of applicants to star in ‘All Inclusive: How Do They Do It?’ The consumer documentary follows holiday-goers as they arrive at a busy all-inclusive hotel in Spain, and is aimed at giving viewers tips and hints as they look at booking their own summer getaways. The Greens, from Lundwood, are self-confessed ‘all-inclusive experts’. Lisa, 41, said: “I spend my spare time looking for holiday bargains. “We don’t go around town or any-

thing like that, we go on two or three holidays a year and that’s what we do for fun. “We were told there were 20,000 initial enquiries so it’s mad that we got picked. “Until you’ve experienced it you don’t understand the amount of effort that goes into filming a programme like that, even just one scene. “The first couple of days were a bit tense but then you kind of forget about the cameras, even though there are three or four people around you. The crew were fantastic and made us feel at ease.” The show, which airs on Thursdays at 9pm, follows the Greens alongside two other sets of holiday-goers, one a family of novices and the other a group of friends, at the Albir Garden resort in Alicante.

Con victims urged: Don’t let embarrassment stop you from seeking help to take me into Barnsley town centre,” she told the Chronicle. “Luckily the bank took me to one side as they were suspicious about the withdrawal and a police officer came before it was too late.” However, when police looked into the incident, it became clear that the pensioner had been a repeated previous target and had lost £1,500 on three separate occasions before. “I have two sons but didn’t want to tell them at first, so I chose to stay quiet and keep it from them,” she added. “I did that because I was worried, embarrassed I’d let them take advantage of my trust. “Trust is the biggest thing – when I got calls from someone saying they were from my bank, I had no reason to disbelieve them. “They knew things about me but it’s important people just put the phone down to avoid the same as what happened to me. “It was only on the occasion when the bank’s staff took me

to one side that I knew that it wasn’t their policy to call their customers. “I simply did not know beforehand and trusted what the criminals told me.” Operation Signature has been rolled out by police across the town – focusing on protecting those deemed to be at high risk of fraud – which has seen each of Barnsley’s six neighbourhood policing teams tasked with advising vulnerable people about the potential pitfalls of fraud. Andy Foster, protection officer for financial-related matters, admitted that fraudsters’ activity remains a ‘serious concern’ for officers in Barnsley. “Courier fraud such as this happens when criminals telephone a potential victim, claiming to be from their bank, the police or other law enforcement agencies,” he said. “We’re seeing hundreds of cases on a monthly basis – it’s an epidemic and it’s something forces struggle to prevent due to its nature. “Money, once it’s gone, often

goes from one place to another so it’s difficult to trace. “I’ve seen in the past how shocking it can be and some people have lost their entire life savings as a result of being conned by a caller. “In this case, the pensioner was a repeat victim who was preyed upon because she was vulnerable. “But we believe many victims opt against reporting costly crime simply because they’re embarrassed. “Banks or the police will never ask anyone to withdraw cash or ask for security details, so please be on your guard if you receive a call from ‘your bank’ or from someone claiming to be from the police. “I would advise anyone receiving unsolicited calls via their home phone to contact their telephone provider and ask them if they provide a free call-blocking service. “Alternatively, call-blocking devices and replacement telephones with call blocking software pre-installed are available to buy.”

A PENSIONER who was repeatedly tricked into giving away thousands of pounds to criminals purporting to be from her bank has warned others to be cautious when answering calls – after being ‘too embarrassed’ to initially tell her family about being conned. The 87-year-old, who did not wish to be named, chose to speak out as part of South Yorkshire Police’s ongoing Operation Signature, which was formed as a result of rising cases involving fraudsters targeting vulnerable residents. The widow, from Ardsley, suffers from multiple sclerosis and was hoodwinked into believing a call from her bank, NatWest, was genuine. Criminals tricked her into thinking there had been ‘suspicious activity’ relating to her account and, as a precaution, advised her to transfer £4,200 to another account in June last year. “They rang to explain all this in great detail and even arranged a taxi to pick me up

Are DIY Divorces worth it? Couples are resorting to DIY services in an attempt to reduce the costs of Divorce. The Divorce process can be complicated, especially where there are children and assets involved, and decisions reached between yourself and your spouse could change as the Divorce process goes on. A DIY Divorce is not suitable for the majority of cases. You should always seek professional legal advice, especially when: - There’s is disagreement over the grounds for Divorce. - You want to claim costs from your spouse. - You are presenting a petition for an annulment. - You have been married for less than 12 months. - You’re in a civil partnership. - Disagreements over children. It’s essential that advice is obtained from a specialist at an early stage and that those divorcing become financially, as well as legally, divorced to ensure claims cannot be made

John Clegg Matrimonial Specialist against assets afterwards. Instructing a Solicitor to deal with your Divorce can help you: - Understand the ‘legal jargon’ and the implications of your actions. - Use the right words in your Divorce petition. - Gain professional advice on whether a financial settlement that you have agreed upon is fair – you could be entitled to more! - Receive full advice from a specialist if you don’t know where to start. - Choose the best possible outcome for your children. You should also consider the emotional and physical strain Divorce can have. Having someone you can trust on your side can help take away some of the worry and stress. John Clegg is a Divorce specialist at Howells Solicitors. He is an expert at dealing with financial matters and complex cases which involve children. He also offers a free 30 m inute consultation.

Struber sees progress despite disappointing defeat for Reds BARNSLEY fell to a late goal at Bristol City – and will aim to bounce back when they host Preston North End tonight (Tuesday). Niclas Eliasson notched in the 87th minute as Bristol won 1-0 at Ashton Gate on Saturday. The Swedish winger kept his composure to pick his spot following Jay Dasilva’s superb surging run and cross. It was only a second defeat in eight Championship games for Barnsley, who are third-bottom, one point from safety. Play-off chasers Bristol hit the woodwork twice in the opening half, but Barnsley showed plenty of enterprise, with Conor Chaplin forcing a superb save from Daniel Bentley. Luke Thomas jabbed wide from five yards after a mis-hit shot fell to him and recent recruit Marcel Ritzmaier almost put the Reds ahead after the break, only for his chip to strike the crossbar.

“When I saw Bristol, with these players and this budget, it’s not so easy for a Barnsley team to get points here,” said head coach Gerhard Struber. “So to be very unlucky and disappointed not to have a draw or a win is, for us, good feedback and shows us we are going in the right direction. “We are all disappointed but I told the boys we are happy with the performance. “The only thing to be disappointed about is the result. We look forward to the next game and to show what we can do at home.” Struber added: “The performance was great, especially the second half. “I am very proud of my boys. But we lost the game, which is very very disappointing. We were not in the same killer mood as the last games when we created good chances but scored the goals. We needed the last pass and shot for the goals.

“This defeat is very painful. I have seen the statistics of the shots we have had. But many parts of the game show me we are on the right path and we are very hopeful for the next games. “When I saw my team create chances, I saw the high competence of this team and how we have developed in my style. “The opponent had only long balls but they had individual high quality, which is sometimes the difference.” Preston are ninth, one place below Bristol City, after a 2-1 home win over Charlton Athletic on Saturday. The Lancashire side went behind after five minutes, but hit back to win with goals by Josh Harrop (31 minutes) and Patrick Bauer (52). On Saturday, Barnsley are in FA Cup fourth-round action away to Portsmouth. The South coast team are seventh in League One after winning 1-0 at Bolton Wanderers.

THWARTED: Conor Chaplin’s shot is blocked.

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

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