Residents take action to fend off potential flooding HUNDREDS of sandbags have been laid alongside the crumbling banks of the River Dove as flood-hit residents continue to fear for their safety. Heavy rainfall in November has since been followed by two major storms, Ciara and Dennis, over recent weeks - causing the river, which runs parallel to Ings Road, Low Valley, to remain at serious levels that have seen its banks given little chance to recover. Members of the Low Valley Flood Defence Committee supplied sandbags - some of which were obtained after a request made to the council - and scaffolding boards, and patrolled the route of the river. Sue Bradshaw, who re-established the committee once chaired by her late husband Pete after last

year’s flooding saw damage to 150 homes in the area, said: “We’re going to have another go at it over the weekend. “The banks have slipped so much we’ve had to put the scaffolding boards up in places. “Fingers crossed the rain doesn’t come any more. With anything that does come, there’s a big chance that it’s going to flood again, but at least we’ve got a bit more in place. “We’ve got people constantly watching the river.” Sue, who had to chip in wearing a cast after a fall on the footpath alongside the riverbank saw her injure her arm, said the committee had proposed the path is closed off until the ground is given a chance to recover. A recent committee meeting was attended by council leader Sir Steve

Houghton, who listened to residents’ concerns regarding the flood-hit area, and he has also visited the river with members. As well as receiving sandbags from the council, committee members will now have access to a storage shed formerly used by the council, on Ings Road. This will be used to house extra sandbags, wheelbarrows and other equipment. The committee will be holding a race night on March 14 in order to raise funds for specialised flood defences for the surrounding homes. Sue, 60, of Stonyford Road, said £5,000 was needed to make sure every home was protected. The committee’s next public meeting will take place on March 9 at the Sportsman Inn, Pitt Street.

XPO helping to raise cash for Teenage Cancer Trust

Advertiser announcement

IN JANUARY it was the return of the Young Voices Concert at Sheffield DSA Arena and colleagues at XPO Logistics were more than happy to support Teenage Cancer Trust on the night. On four of the six days, XPO provided 10 colleagues to bucket collect at the end of the concert. Dale Tomlinson, regional fundraiser for Yorkshire and Humber said: “We raised an amazing £16,790.92 over the course of the six nights at Sheffield DSA Arena and we really couldn’t have accomplished this incredible result without the XPO staff – who not only came in such large numbers, but brought enthusiasm, energy and a smile each to help us reach our highest ever total to date! Many thanks to XPO for the sheer number of volunteers you were able to provide for us! “The funds raised will make a huge difference in the lives of the patients and families we care for across the region.”

THIS year XPO Logistics Barnsley will be participating in the Barnsley Hospice Accumulator Challenge for the second year running. This year the challenge is to turn £29 into as much money as possible throughout the 29 days of February. The team are very competitive so their aim is to smash their target and beat last year’s total of £673.96. The winner will be the team that makes the most profit, and there will also be a prize for the most innovative idea.

XPO LOGISTICS has supported Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice for over two years and this support will continue throughout 2020. At the beginning of January two teams from XPO Logistics Barnsley and Doncaster, spent a day volunteering at the hospice. Duties carried out by staff included clearing out Christmas decorations and taking down Christmas trees, cleaning the Bluebell Wood cars and sorting out some of the donations. It was a fan-

tastic day for all involved and colleagues appreciated visiting the hospice and seeing what amazing work the team at Bluebell Wood do. Throughout January at XPO Logistics Barnsley, colleagues were encouraged to keep fit and sign up for the monthly challenge. Move Month challenged colleagues to complete ten or more exercise classes in the on-site gym. In partnership with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, this was a fantastic way to raise sponsorship for

the local children’s hospice, as well as getting colleagues into shape (and stir up some healthy competition). In total 15 colleagues took part and a total of £1,622 was raised for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice throughout January.

Edith enjoys a special day as she joins the 100 club... A WOMAN who attributes her long life to ‘taking things as they come’ celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by family and friends. Edith Greaves was born February 13, 1920, on Fitzwilliam Street, Hemingfield. She had three siblings – Florence, Thomas and Arthur and attended Hemingfield Ellis School. At the age of 14, Edith went into service as a maid at St Thomas’ Vicarage in Batley where she spent two years working until she was 16. “I really enjoyed working for the vicar,” said Edith. “I was really proud to be in service and the vicar was lovely.” On May 9, 1942, Edith married her first husband Kenneth Boreham and they have one son, Malcolm. In 1987, Edith married Arthur Greaves but their marriage was cut short when he died just four years later. “Arthur was a lovely bloke, he was really kind and I would have wanted

more time with him than I got, it’s sad really.” Edith now lives in an assisted living complex and to celebrate her birthday, staff threw her a birthday party for her to celebrate with family and friends. She was also visited by former mayor, Coun Steve Green, who returned to visit Edith to fulfil a promise he made a year earlier. During his time as mayor, Steve had promised Edith that he would dance with her at her 100th birthday and on Thursday the pair enjoyed that long-awaited dance. “I don’t feel any different,” said Edith. “I just take things as they come and I don’t drink. “I can’t believe everyone came to celebrate with me. “I love the card from the Queen – I didn’t think I was going to get one but I am so happy I have.” MILESTONE: Edith Greaves.

Fostering roadshow BARNSLEY Council’s fostering team have been working to attract Barnsley carers for Barnsley children. High on the wanted list are carers for teenagers, sibling groups and longterm placements. There is a roadshow at Cudworth Library from 10am to 12pm on Saturday. Residents are invited to have a chat with the team to answer their questions and explore the many types of fostering arrangements. They’ll also be joined by experienced carers who will share their stories and offer first-hand advice about fostering. Coun Margaret Bruff, cabinet spokesperson for people, said: “We’re looking for foster carers for children of all ages, but especially for children aged ten and above and carers with enough space in their lives to keep families together. “It doesn’t matter if you’re single, own your home, or have children of your own children. “We offer a range of local support for both carers and children so you’ll always be able to contact our dedicated Barnsley-based teams.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 –

Council criticised over park security cost MORE than £200,000 has been ‘scandalously’ splashed out by Barnsley Council on providing security at a fenced-off park at the centre of a row over a new oneway road system. Penny Pie Park, which borders Dodworth Road and Pogmoor Road, was closed to the public in December to allow for preparatory work to be carried out ahead of the new multi-lane gyratory’s creation. However, after cabinet spokesman Coun Chris Lamb said he could not reveal the full extent of the security contract provided by Middlesbrough-based firm Vistech at a full council meeting earlier this month due to an ‘element of sensitivity’, it’s now been revealed that the six-figure sum has been spent. Coun Peter Fielding, who posed

the unanswered questions at the meeting, said: “I am shocked to learn that more than £200,000 has been spent so far by the council on security measures at Penny Pie Park. “Following my question about these costs at full council on February 6, I was given a full written answer by Coun Lamb but was prohibited from divulging detailed information as it was deemed to be commercially confidential. “I can however reveal that the total spent so far on legal fees, security guards and security fencing is well over £200,000 and this expenditure does not appear to have been included specifically in the £4.3m estimate for the gyratory scheme. “Much of this expenditure was approved using a contract waiver, meaning that only one quote from

one company was obtained, making it difficult to ensure value for money. “The fact that the council thought that this expenditure was necessary in order to defend its activities from the local community shows just how little they have engaged with or understand that community. “The vast majority of locals oppose this scheme and continue to do so by peaceful and lawful protest but have not and will not engage in unlawful protests. “For the council to have spent such an amount on unnecessary security measures is a scandalous waste of our money – money that could have been better spent doing things the community actually wants, such as dealing with parking problems, speeding, potholes, litter, fly-tipping and so on.

“I hope the council will now try to engage constructively with and listen to this community rather than treating them as a threat that need to be defended against.” The council defended its decision to employ an out-of-town security company because a local rival ‘may have been harassed’ by members of the public. Complaints have been made by local councillors as to why a local firm was not chosen for the job, but the council claimed that the decision was made from its past experiences but added that Vistech’s involvement may not be a long-term arrangement. Coun Chris Lamb, cabinet spokesperson for environment and transport, said: “For the junction improvement scheme, securing the site is essential to protect residents and the workforce.

“It’s standard procedure for any construction site and security services to help keep the area safe and secure, both for contractors working and the general public. “It’s a working site and it’s what we do with any site of this nature to prevent people getting harmed. Vistech were contracted on a short-term appointment which fully complies with the council’s contract procedure rules. “Vistech is experienced in locally-sensitive schemes, and by contracting an out-of-area company, it reduces the risk of them being subject to harassment. The anticipated cost for the security services, including the purchasing and hiring of fencing, totals £220,000. The control of the site, including security, will be passed onto the civil engineering contractor once appointed.”

STAFF at Cannon Hall Farm can now keep their eye on the animals during the busy lambing season after the farm installed CCTV to provide a constant view of the new arrivals. The cameras, dubbed ‘lamb cams’, were installed at the Cawthorne farm to help the Nicholson family have a 24-hour view of their animals during their busiest time of year. The season will see hundreds of new arrivals at the farm. “We had toyed with the idea of CCTV for a while but now

dad is getting older that’s what swayed it for us,” said farmer Robert Nicholson. “It might save his legs a bit because he likes to keep a careful eye on the animals. “David and I will of course be doing all our usual checks but often the ewes give birth without needing any help for us – it will be nice to see how they go about it when we aren’t there and also a comfort to know we can check on them at any time and go to their aid more quickly if we are needed.”

Top accolade awarded to Shafton fish and chip shop A FISH shop is frying high after clinching a top award. Two Gate Fisheries, in Shafton, is celebrating after being recognised with the prestigious National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) fish and chip quality award. The accolade spotlights fish and chip shops that serve the highest quality food, which sees inspectors make a thorough assessment of premises, equipment, working practices, hygiene standards and management controls, along with the quality and taste of the cooked fish and chips.

Just 225 shops across the country currently have the award. Two Gates Fisheries owner Craig Butcher said: “To be recognised as one of the top fish and chip shops is an honour and a credit to our hard-working staff. This is a prestigious award. “It doesn’t just represent the fish and chips we produce, but also the hard work and high quality produce our local suppliers provide us to work with.” QUALITY: Right: Craig Butcher with Hugh Mantle from the NFFF.

Eye care at home made simple ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE

Specsavers’ home-visiting service makes sure that people who struggle to leave their homes unaccompanied are not forgotten, as they bring the optician to them

DID you know that eye care is available in your own home? According to a recent YouGov survey*, 58% of over 50s in the UK are unaware that people can have their eyes tested at home, or in sheltered accommodation or care homes. This applies to people who cannot visit a high street optician unaccompanied due to a physical or mental illness or disability. The eye tests are funded by the NHS for those people who are eligible.

Specsavers is prepared to go the distance to protect the nation’s eye health with their home-visiting service. More than two million people in the UK are living with sight loss, and nearly 40% of them, most of whom are aged over 70, could have their sight improved by wearing correctly prescribed glasses. Yet only one in three people who are eligible for a free NHS-funded home eye test are currently benefiting from this amazing service.

of older people, helping them to look good and feel good too. What’s more, if you qualify for NHS funding, you may also be eligible for free glasses from their £19£49 range.

A caring partnership Housebound customers can also take advantage of Specsavers’ partnership with Royal Voluntary Service, whose trusted volunteers can support their clients at home during their eye tests. This year the partnership will see the charity’s 18,000 volunteers mobilised to inform thousands of eligible UK residents about Specsavers’ home-visiting service. Stella Green, 99, is a Specsavers home visits customer. Macular degeneration and cataracts have left her with impaired vision, which means she needs more support at home, so she’s visited weekly by Royal Voluntary Service volunteer John Aylward. Stella says that she was impressed by the eye test offered by the Specsavers home-visiting team: ‘The test was very thorough, and it was really comfortable having it in my own home. Having them come to see me makes me feel like a star and that I’m very important!’

About Specsavers home visits Home eye tests from Specsavers are carried out with the same care and attention as in a Specsavers store. You can request a home visit for yourself or on behalf of someone else and they’ll come at a time that is convenient for you. If the eye test shows that you need glasses, Specsavers’ team will help you choose and try on new glasses from a range of 160 different styles. Specsavers’ aim is to improve the overall confidence

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 –

Academy’s improvements are noted by inspectors A BARNSLEY school rated ‘requires improvement’ at its last Ofsted inspection has now been told it is officially a ‘good school’. Barnsley Academy was praised in a highly positive report published this week in which inspectors praised the ‘big changes’ which have been made in recent years. The changes included improvements to the curriculum, the recruitment of more specialist teachers and the setting of higher expectations of behaviour and learning. The inspectors said they were highly impressed by the attitudes of students and how excited and engaged they are in their learning. They also described the academy as ‘calm and purposeful’ and they also found that behaviour is good, attendance is increasing and exclusions are reducing. Inspectors described the personal development of pupils as a particular strength of the school. They cited opportunities such as becoming cultural ambassadors and said that

they nurtured a better understanding of other cultures and beliefs amongst pupils. Principal Steve Dixon said about the report: “We are incredibly fortunate to have an excellent team of staff who always go above and beyond for students to give each and every one a chance to succeed. Barnsley Academy has undergone a step change in recent years and this report shows that we have all the foundations in place to continue to go from strength to strength. Our recent success, however, would not have been possible without the support of our parents and the wider Barnsley community. We are very proud to serve this part of Yorkshire and give young people here an enjoyable, challenging and inspirational education. “Our students amaze me every day with their enthusiasm and determination to succeed. It is an honour to lead this academy and give our students the education they deserve.”

Support slot for Dearne indie rockers Huulen A DEARNE band will support an American rock band at their gig in Sheffield. Huulen are a four piece indie rock band formed of members Andy Daniels, Will Campbell, and brothers Joe and Matt Elliss. They were originally named Starkins but re-branded in 2018 to a name which they felt reflected them better. “We have all been in the same band since 2010,” said lead singer, Andy Daniels, from Bolton-uponDearne.

“We had that sort-of clean-cut image and sang indie pop and when we started moving away from that and into indie rock, we thought we would change our name to reflect the change. Next month the band will perform alongside American rock band, Plain White T’s, as a support act at their gig at the O2 arena in Sheffield. Plain White T’s are best known for their 2005 hit, Hey There Delilah. “I am really excited for the gig,” said Andy, 26.

7

“We normally play with a lot of unsigned bands so to play with the Plain White T’s will be ace. “We haven’t met them yet but I am hoping that they will pass on some nuggets of wisdom about the industry.” Huulen will play alongside Plain White T’s on March 21 at the O2 arena. The band will also release an EP of new songs on March 18 which will be available to stream on all major streaming sites.

Design work rewarded ART ATTACK: Graham Ibbeson, Patrick Murphy and Tony Heald pictured in their new workspace at the Cooper art gallery. Picture: Kurt Fairhurst. PD088759

New home for artists THREE local artists will show off their work in a town-centre gallery’s recently-refurbished hub for art. The Cooper Cottage project has seen a once-empty building – attached to the Cooper Gallery – brought back to life as a hub of creative talent thanks to a grant

from Arts Council England. Renowned sculptor Graham Ibbeson and two artists, Tony Heald and Patrick Murphy, have all signed up to show off their work. Matt Gladstone, executive director of place at Barnsley Council, said: “Barnsley town centre is going through an exciting period of change.

“A variety of new businesses, entrepreneurs and creatives will be flocking to the town over the forthcoming months and years. “The new space at the Cooper Gallery is hugely important and will further support the town’s already thriving cultural offer. “The artists in residence

will thrive in the new studios, adding to their already outstanding body of works.” Graham, whose work includes the iconic Eric Morecambe statue, added: “I have had a long association with the Cooper Gallery and I’m delighted to be working in such an iconic and inspiring environment.”

THREE young people collected an arts award for their help in designing a new sculpture for Cannon Hall. Maisy Anderson and Amelia Wagstaff, both 12, and Aiden Anderson, 15, visited the venue to collect their certificates for their contribution to the project. The designs will now be added to the hanging, mobile sculpture that will be placed on one of the trees in the park. Local poet Ian McMillan led a workshop for the win-

ners, and was on hand to give out the awards. Gaby Lees, community arts officer for Cannon Hall, said: “Families who are members of Athersley Community Shop have come together to work with one of our artists, Louise Wright, who is designing a beautiful sculpture. “It’s been a really good opportunity to give Maisy, Aiden and Amelia their arts awards and for Ian to come in and present the award was a real treat in front of friends and family.”

Retirement of popular governor A LONG-STANDING governor at a special school for children with complex needs is retiring after clocking up more than ten years’ service. Molly Beever was on the governing body of Greenacre School on Keresforth Hill Road in Barnsley and was a vicechair for several years beforehand. The 76-year-old, from Pogmoor, has worked in education for most of her life, previously being a college lecturer before becoming a governor at LIFE AT THE TOP: Brian Smailes on his way up Mount Kilimanjaro, and right, with one of the guides at the summit.

She was a member of the governing body when Kingstone merged with Holgate to become Horizon Community College in 2012. “I was there for a while and I ended up leaving Horizon and came to Greenacre after being asked by the deputy head at the time,” said Molly. “I used to work with the local authority and we put on enterprise events and they asked me if I wanted to come here.” Molly said she has ‘immensely enjoyed’ being a governor at the school, but decided it was time for her to step down from her role. “I have always said it has been a privilege to be a governor at Greenacre School,” she said. “The children are absoWalk, run, jog or dance around the 5k course lutely wonderful and I’m really sorry to be leaving. for Barnsley Hospice. “I’ve loved everything and everyone here is so great.

AN avid travel guide managed to climb Mount Kilimanjaro – despite being close to collapsing – on his latest exploration trip. Brian Smailes, of Raley Drive, Honeywell, took a group of five people to Tanzania to tackle the highest single free-standing mountain in the world at 19,341 feet (5,895 metres) above sea level. The 68-year-old said this was one of his toughest treks yet, as he fell ill with dysentery three days into the walk. “We left the UK on January 31 and it took us a full day and a bit to get over to Tanzania,” said Brian. “We started the trek on February 2 and it took eight days to walk up and a day-and-a-half to come down.” After falling ill, Brian said he was unsure if he would make the rest of the walk as he couldn’t keep any food down and had little energy. “I don’t know how I managed it if I’m honest,” added Brian. “Each night on the way up we just got to camp, ate straight away and then slept, then we would carry on. It was a full-on expedition. “It was very bad weather, the winds were insane, up to 80mph. The guide I was with said they were the worst he had seen in ten years on the mountain.

Proposed museum to house collection? AMBITIOUS plans for Penistone to get its own museum are being explored by town councillors to boost the destination as a visitor attraction. A museum, they say, could also solve a long-running dilemma on what to do about a large-scale collection of artefacts by local military historian and author John Ownsworth. The council heard that Mr Ownsworth wants to keep his life’s work in Penistone. But Coun David Wood said he has had offers from Cawthorne Museum, Leeds Imperial War Museum and the Military Museum in London. Coun Wood wants the whole membership to visit Mr Ownsworth’s home to view the wartime and military collection. “He is keen to keep everything in Penistone,” he said. “As we are having an extension to the community centre for Penistone archives, it would be good if all of us could go to his house, meet him and his wife and see his collection. “Lots of people have been amazed by what he has amassed in his lifetime. It is truly amazing.” He said one item of memorabilia is a stainless steel blade made for the first jet engine by

the local David Brown factory. Chairman Gillian Millner said: “This has been brought up over the years and we have never had anywhere to house his collection. “We will have the extension,” said Coun Wood. “That is why I want us to go and see what he has. He has made this his life’s work. We have to get behind him and help him achieve his dream.” Council clerk Keith Coulton said this matter had been raised before along with the question of insurance. “There were concerns regarding the safety of some of the collection and memorabilia,” he said. Coun Millner reminded the meeting that Mr Ownsworth, who is 82, badly injured a hand while cleaning a shell in his garage. “Yes, but nothing has been done and he has not been given any help to stay in Penistone,” insisted Coun Wood. Coun Carol Bradbury said: “We don’t have room at the archive – even with an extension – as Penistone Archives have so much material.” Coun Millner said: “There is a lot to consider. Whether Penistone Archives are willing to take it on and if we can get cover.” Coun Steve Marsh was all for the idea. “We have been trying

to find somewhere for years,” he said. “Most places have a museum. It doesn’t just have to be for John Ownsworth. Maybe we should look at a museum as a visitor attraction. Some of the stuff might not be allowed to be kept there, but there are many items of interest.” Coun Millner said that it might be possible to fund a scheme by way of Barnsley Council’s Principal Towns Initiative. Coun Marsh said: “There are empty areas at the town hall which might be used. And there is a lot of history in Penistone. Let’s start looking forward and do this as a project. Put it out there.” Coun Joe Unsworth said: “This is a long-standing issue. We need to be aware of the scale of the collection and then we can look at the possibilities.” He agreed PTI funding might be a good idea. It was agreed councillors would go to Mr Ownsworth’s house by arrangement through Coun Wood. Coun Marsh said: “We need to put some feelers out as to what we would need. Cawthorne, for example, has everything and our history should be on show somewhere for the younger generation as well as visitors. Make it a vision.” LIFE’S WORK: John Ownsworth with his extensive collection of artefacts.

Group tackles male social isolation A SOCIAL group specifically targeted at men is looking for new members to help support wellbeing and social engagement. Happy Hour is a newly-launched social group for men of any age, background or community which aims to keep men talking. The group has increased in numbers since it started in November, with more men attending the sessions every week to eat, socialise and have a cup of tea. The sessions, held by Athersley Cares and the Social Prescribing scheme, are an open forum where men can bring a topic of discussion, play a game of dominoes and have weekly speakers that are all agreed upon by the group. One member of the Happy Hour group said: “There is no pressure and no set agenda. “The sessions are definitely what we make them because they are a safe place where we all have each other’s back.” Another member of the group, said: “There are lots of groups like this, but they all target everyone, rather than just men. “Men can often be the most vulnerable to social isolation and yet it doesn’t seem to be tackled as often. “We welcome new members to the group, and would love to see the group continue to grow.” Happy Hour is held every Thursday from noon at St Helen’s Church Hall on Laithes Lane in Athersley.

HOUR WELL SPENT: Founder Dani Vetters with members of the Happy Hour group which meets at St Helen’s Church hall on Thursdays.

Worried dad’s warning over playground danger

LUCKY ESCAPE: Luke Ryalls with the glass he picked up from a children’s play area.

A WARNING has been issued by a concerned father after a children’s play area was left strewn with broken glass following a spate of antisocial behaviour. Luke Ryalls took his three-year-old daughter Willow to the park on Station Road, Wombwell, on Sunday. While his daughter was playing on the seesaw at the far side of the park, the 30-yearold noticed that ‘something sparkly’ was underneath his shoe. Luke realised he was standing on pieces of smashed glass on the floor. Fortunately no one sustained any injuries at the time as his daughter didn’t stand on or pick up any of the broken glass. Luke, of Bayford Way, got rid of the pieces of glass in order to prevent a serious injury to any child or infant visiting the park. Luke said: “I thought I was standing on some gum and I looked down and it turned out to be the smashed bottom half of a beer bottle. “I couldn’t believe I was standing on it. Luckily my daughter wasn’t hurt but I went

around picking up the pieces of glass all around the park to prevent a future incident.” In the wake of his discovery, Luke called on Barnsley Council to act by checking its parks on a more regular basis to make sure there are no items which could cause harm. Youths were blamed for a series of criminal damage offences in the park last year, which led the council to issue a warning that repairing kids’ play areas may not be possible in the future due to mounting costs and reduced budgets. Vandalism at park play areas and multiuse games areas across Barnsley cost more than £100,000 to rectify in the last five years, according to figures obtained by the Chronicle. “There needs to be more patrols and more care as there are youths that hang around at night and even sometimes light fires,” added Luke. “In the summer there are about five or six families in one day turn up at to enjoy their time at the park.”

Top row, submitted by, from left, Nicola Shepherd, Amanda Saunders and Wendy Hanson. Bottom row, from left, Ashleigh Flintham, Richard Bruce, Laura Watson, Emmica Scotting and Amanda Cunliffe.

WINNER: Josh Wale, second from right on the back row.

Wale eyes world title shot after seeing off Kayumba IT TOOK boxer Josh Wale just seven minutes to overcome the challenge of Iddi Kayumba on Friday night at the Metrodome. Brampton featherweight Wale, 31, was dominant against the southpaw from Tanzania. After weighing up his opponent in the first round, Wale decked him in the second with a body shot just moments after landing a big right hand.

It was all over with a minute gone in the third with Kayumba down in agony from a powerful hook to the body. Referee Phil Edwards waved off the fight with exactly a minute gone. Wale, who now has 31 career wins as a professional, will return to action at the same venue in June with promoter Dennis Hobson hopeful of securing him a world title shot in 2020.

WAB competition...

VERSATILE TALENT: Clare Grogan.

Birthday or not, it’s your chance to have a happy night with a top band ONE of the brightest stars in the 1980’s new wave sky, Altered Images are best remembered for their chart-topping single Happy Birthday. Their bubbly lead singer Clare Grogan originally shot to fame in the film Gregory’s Girl, then appeared in Red Dwarf, EastEnders and Skins and was a presenter on music station VH1. Altered Images quickly had worldwide success, selling millions of records, which topped the charts in several countries. They recorded three top ten albums, had six UK top 40 hits, were voted best new group at the NME awards and invited to play at the Royal Command Performance.

Clare, now 57, has worked extensively in music, film, television, theatre and radio. Glasgow-born, she and her band worked closely with Scottish painter David Band, creating original art works that were released as special edition prints alongside the Altered Images singles. Clare recently received a special recognition award at the Scottish Music Awards and headlined a gala night at the Citizens Theatre in her home city. In January, she played to a sellout crowd in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater. And she recently made her debut at the Royal Albert Hall, where she joined compatriots

Texas, led by fellow Glaswegian Sharleen Spiteri, on stage. Altered Images will be coming to the Holmfirth Picturedome on Friday, March 6. And we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets. To be in with a chance of winning just answer this question: “When is Clare Grogan’s birthday?” Send your answer along with your name and contact number to competitions@wearebarnsley.com or alternatively post your entry to WAB Altered Images, 47 Church Street, Barnsley S70 2AS. The closing date is this Friday, February 28. Good luck!

Hear some of music’s most famous melodies SHE’S the fairest lady in musical theatre history and she will be making a return to Barnsley this spring in a new production from Theatre Impromptu. Lerner and Loewe’s legendary My Fair Lady – the romantic comedy about a Cockney flower girl whose elocution lessons make her the darling of high society – comes to Theatre Impromptu in Thurlstone from April 15-26 in a new and different revival by acclaimed director Jonathan Walker-Kane. The production will include some well-known faces in South Yorkshire theatre including Matthew Walker, Steve Ash, Valerie Mills, Robert Flewitt and Andrew Hibbert. But they will be sharing parts and performances with a cast

MOMENT OF CONTEMPLATION: Nigel Plummer in My Fair Lady.

brought in specifically for this production from South Africa. And in a change of style, the company will be accompanied by two grand pianos playing some of the most famous melodies in musical history. My Fair Lady made a star of Julie Andrews when it opened on Broadway in 1956 and then

went on to become a wellknown 1964 film, with Audrey Hepburn taking on the role of Eliza Doolittle. Recent productions for Theatre Impromptu – the specially converted St Saviour’s Church in Thurlstone – include Evita, Arcadia, The Deep Blue Sea and Tell Me On a Sunday.

Second successive win lifts Reds off the bottom

Barnsley’s Beth set for SheBelieves BARNSLEY footballer Bethany England has been selected in the England squad for the SheBelieves Cup next month. The high-profile tournament pits Phil Neville’s side against Spain, Japan and hosts USA in early March. The tournament is played on a mini-league basis, and England face USA at Orlando on March 5, Japan at Harrison, New Jersey on March 8 and Spain at Frisco, Texas on March 11. England are the holders, having finished above USA, Japan and Brazil last year. Bethany, 25, has five caps for her country and two goals. She is from Kingstone and now plays for Chelsea in the Women’s Super League. Coach Neville says all attention should b on defending the SheBelieves Cup, not on impressing ahead of this year’s Olympics in Tokyo. Neville will lead a Team GB squad – including players from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – in Japan in July and August. But he warned: “I have stopped all of my staff talking about the Olympics. “And I will also stop my players. “This is an England camp, we’ve got another England camp in April and we are focusing on it being only an England camp. “The work being done for the Olympics is being done outside of these camps. “It can’t impact on the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland players so it would be unfair for me to go to the SheBelieves and talk about the Olympics.”

HEAD coach Gerhard Struber was delighted with a second successive win and clean sheet in Barnsley’s 1-0 home victory over Middlesbrough on Saturday. Conor Chaplin’s second-half strike ensured the Reds followed up a 3-0 victory at Fulham and climbed off the bottom of the Championship. Barnsley now face away games at Hull City tomorrow (Wednesday) and Reading on Saturday. Struber said: “I am very happy. We have the clean sheet and also we scored to get the next very, very important victory. “We created a very, very important performance together. In every single action and duel, I had the feeling that we are the winner. “The attitude and the energy was amazing. I am very proud of my team. “I hope we can bring this energy in the next few weeks then it will be very difficult for all our opponents.” The Reds have cut the gap to safety from six points to five. Struber said: “Two clean sheets in a row and six points gives us a very good feeling. “The atmosphere in the dressing room was always okay, but right now it is top.

“After Birmingham (a 1-0 loss in the previous home game) it was very very difficult for everyone, but we stayed together, we worked hard and we believed. “Right now, we show our fans a very good performance and the performance was very important for our fans. “The atmosphere in the stadium and the support from our fans was brilliant. Right now it is a very good situation.” On Chaplin, who got his tenth league goal of the season after one in his last ten, Struber said: “Conor is a top player for us. “He scored, he works hard against the ball. He helped to bring the opponents’ mentality down, along with Browny (Jacob Brown), who was very very good off the ball. “The whole team worked very well after a brilliant training week.” Barnsley changed to a 3-4-1-2 formation with Jordan Williams playing as one of the three centre-backs. Struber said: “My three centre-backs created a special performance. “Our defensive style was the key to us winning against a very good team.” Hull are 17th and Reading 16th.
