Drug bust will hit gang hard A POLICE raid carried out as part of a no-nonsense crackdown on gangs muscling into territories in Barnsley resulted in a large amount of Class A drugs being recovered. South Yorkshire Police’s new violent crime tasking force, funded through a £2.5m Home Office grant, began working in Goldthorpe and Boltonupon-Dearne after bosses argued that something needed to be done to stop armed gangs – whose members are said to be behind rising drug-related reports – from recruiting vulnerable youngsters in order to peddle substances in deprived areas. Through Operation Fortify, the team raided a property last week and recovered drugs – as well as thousands of pounds in cash – before arresting a 30-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman on suspicion of possession with intent to supply. Although both have been released under investigation, Detective Inspector Steve Smith hailed the result as a success and promised the public in affected communities to expect more proactive work. “Carrying out warrants to disrupt suspected organised criminality is only one element of what we are doing,” he said. “It is a key part – we want people to know just how determined we are to continue this fight

directly against criminals and suspected gang members in this area. “If you are involved, we will identify you and could be knocking on your door soon. “Residents should not have to live in fear, or have concerns about organised crime where they live, and we are regularly working with the local community to address these issues and respond to their concerns.” One gang, the so-called Pitsmoor Shotta Boys, originates from Sheffield but has infiltrated communities such as Goldthorpe and Bolton-uponDearne and were identified by Det Insp Smith. “PSB are well-known, their activity is illegal and we won’t tolerate it as they bring misery to the communities which they have targeted,” he added. “Unfortunately communities on the Barnsley and Rotherham border are close together and it’s these areas which have seen members dispersed. “The current problems in Barnsley relate to Bolton-upon-Dearne and Goldthorpe, so that’s where our team of officers have been during the crackdown. PSB is a group which has gained a foothold in communities and it’s our job to stop that from happening, by either dissuading young gang members or dismantling what remains.”

INBRIEF... Woman, 65, was hit by truck

CANNON Hall Farm hosted a food festival over the bank holiday weekend for guests to enjoy the sun and good food. The four-day event showcased more than 100 exhibitors who sold everything from clothing to local gins. There was also plenty of food for visitors to sample including Greek gyros, Italian wood fired pizza and the classic burger and chips. Children could also enjoy a host of small fairground rides to keep them entertained while

their parents enjoyed the food and the sun. There were plenty of demonstrations taking place over the weekend which featured appearances by Great British Bake Off contestant, Karen Wright, Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen, and Cannon Hall Farm’s Nicholson family.

A WOMAN suffered life-changing injuries after she was hit by a truck on Thursday. Emergency services were called to Pontefract Road, Lundwood following reports that a woman had been hit by a truck. At 9.35am a white and blue HGV tipper truck was travelling along the A628 Pontefract Road, when it was involved in a collision with a pedestrian, a 65-year-old woman. The collision happened at the pedestrian crossing between Wycombe Street and the Iceland Foods store. The woman was taken to hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition. The driver of the truck was not injured. Anyone who saw what happened, or who may have dashcam footage of the incident, is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 182 of August 22.

Car park go-ahead CONTROVERSIAL plans for a new car park in Darton are expected to be approved next week – despite a residents’ petition urging Barnsley Council to axe its plan. The scheme, at Darton Park on Church Street, could provide 33 spaces and has been earmarked for approval at next Tuesday’s planning board meeting.

Cock-a-hoop with sessions... A BASKETBALL club is offering free coaching sessions for primary school children as a fun way to keep up physical activity in the new school term. Barnsley Leaders Junior Basketball Club was formed in 1971 by coach Bert Beaumont. Since its inception, the club has been coaching children, aiming to get them active. “Basketball is a great sport because you don’t need any fancy equipment, just trainers,” said Bert. “Players get a lot more involved as teams are only five-strong which means each person on that team is important and won’t be standing on the sidelines as much, if at all.” The team now has international members as their reputation has grown over the years. “Basketall is really big in mainland Europe,” added Bert. “I’ve had players come who cannot speak a word of English and it’s a great way of integrating them.” The club offer free coaching sessions for primary school pupils from year three to six. “It’s a really easy game to play and we offer the sessions as a way to get more kids interested in playing basketball because

Barnsley is a football-centric town,” said Bert Pupils will be taught all the basic skills, including dribbling, passing and shooting, at the sessions which run every Tuesday from 4.45pm-6.10pm at

Netherwood Academy, Wombwell. Registration takes place from 4.20pm and parents are invited to stay to watch. Send an email to, or ring 755 354.

Gallery is going back to future

BARNSLEY’S Cooper Gallery will be one of the first in the country to partner with the British Museum for an innovative new exhibition. The gallery on Church Street has been chosen as one of just four to co-curate the ‘Pushing paper: contemporary drawing from 1970 to now’ exhibition, which has for the first time in the British Museum’s near-300-year history been created collaboratively with other museums. These partners – the Cooper Gallery, Durham’s Oriental Museum, the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, Orkney, and Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea – have been consulted by the British Museum to decide on the exhibition’s themes and research the works included. The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate drawing in its own right, rather than its historic role as preparatory to painting, As part of the arrangement, the Cooper Gallery will also be able to embed its own works to feature alongside those in the exhibition, which will show work by artists such as Yorkshire’s David Hockney, Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry – many of which will be on display to the public.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, August 27, 2019 –

18-year high in drug poisoning deaths DRUG-RELATED deaths in Barnsley are at their highest level in almost 20 years, according to figures released by the Office for National Statistics. There were 67 deaths registered due to drug poisoning in the borough between 2016 and 2018 – a rate of 9.6 people per 100,000 – the highest in South Yorkshire and higher than the Yorkshire-wide average of 8.2 per 100,000. This is the highest rate since 2001 to 2003, when 49 people – or 7.6 per 100,000 – died of drug poisoning, and a drastic increase from the 36 deaths in 2009 to 2011, when the rate was at its lowest point at 5.4 per 100,000. Of these, drug misuse-related deaths were also at their lowest from 2009 to 2011, with 19 deaths registered, at a rate of 2.8 per 100,000 – but these have again increased by almost double, and now stand at a rate of 5.1 per 100,000 after 36 deaths were registered to have occurred by drug misuse from 2016 to 2018. Drug misuse is classified as a sub-set of drug poisoning – while drug misuse-related deaths occur when the underlying cause of death is drug abuse or dependence, drug

poisoning figures include accidents and suicides involving drugs and complications from drug abuse such as deep vein thrombosis or septicaemia. Almost all drug-related deaths are certified by a coroner, and so there may be deaths that occurred in 2018 that are not included in the concerning figures, due to the length of time it can take for an inquest to conclude. The figures come after a series of Freedom of Information requests made by UK Addiction Treatment Group (UKAT) revealed that in the last six years, Barnsley Council’s spending on public drug and alcohol treatment has decreased from £5.2m in 2013 to £2.8m this year – a 46 per cent reduction. And the group believes this fall in funding is to blame for the rise in drug-related deaths. Eytan Alexander, managing director of UKAT, said: “The ONS figures are saddening but unsurprising. “We’ve highlighted the drastic reduction in budget cuts to substance misuse services every year since 2013 and unfortunately, these figures now show the impact this is having on the most vulnerable people living across

Yorkshire.” Coun Jim Andrews, cabinet spokesman for public health, said: “Every drug-related death is a tragedy and we take every death that occurs seriously. “The drug poisoning death statistic includes accidental, deliberate self-poisoning and drug misuse causes, so the picture is complex and the actions we take locally reflect this. “There are a range of economic, social and environmental factors that affect these figures. This reflects the differences displayed in 2009 – however, since 2011, we have had lower rates relating to drug misuse when compared to the Yorkshire and the Humber average. “Some of the actions we take to combat this include commissioning Barnsley Recovery Steps, an evidence-based drug misuse treatment service, which provides easily accessible support and treatment to residents who need help. “We will continue to work with all partners, including local people and their families to ensure the right support is delivered to those in need.” Coun Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesperson for commun-

ities, previously said the changes to council spending on drug and alcohol services were due to ‘streamlining’ which began two years ago and the service still met contractual requirements. With national records stretching back as far as 1993, ONS has confirmed that the number of drug poisoning-related deaths registered last year – 4,359 across the country – is the highest it’s ever been. Ben Humberstone, deputy director for health analysis and life events, said: “Previously, this had been linked to a rise in deaths related to opiates like heroin and morphine, but last year there were also increases in deaths across a wider variety of substances including cocaine and what had been known as ‘legal highs’. We produce these figures to help inform decision makers working towards protecting those at risk of dying from drug poisoning.” Fentanyl – a substance claimed to be 100 times more lethal than heroin – was said to be responsible for the deaths of seven people in the town in 2017, leading Operation Armenia to be launched to combat drug dealing across Barnsley. n A FORMER professional squash player ran a camp to help children improve upon their squash skills. Barnsley Squash and Racketball Club held a junior squash camp last week for children aged 11 upwards. The camp was hosted by former professional squash player Suzanne Horner who coached the children throughout the day. The camp took place at Shaw Lane Sports Club, Shaw Lane, Barnsley.

Young people grant Mill new life after funding

A GRANT has allowed a mill and country park to run a social action project to bring a new lease of life to the venue. The Youth Social Action Fund was launched to allow community groups to develop opportunities for those facing disability and health issues, or from lower socio-economic groups. To secure the £4.5k bid which helped enhance areas of Worsbrough Mill and Country Park, Barnsley Museums Heritage Trust worked with Qdos Creates, a community arts charity that works with organisations supporting young people with special educational needs and disabilities. Participants from Greenacre School, Opening Doors and Barnsley College created bird boxes and feeders, painted public benches and the community allotment, took part in a ‘tidy day’ and created a permanent piece of art. Coun Robert Frost, cabinet spokesman, said the council was ‘honoured’ to work with the students, young people and staff, who ‘brought with them so much enthusiasm, dedication and talent while volunteering’.

Care home staff praised KIND and compassionate care home staff have been praised in a new report by the Care Quality Commission. During an unannounced visit to Deangate Care Home, in Mapplewell, inspectors spoke with local residents, staff and a visiting health professional asking them about their service. They received ‘consistently positive feedback’ according to the report. Inspectors said: “Staff spoke about people with kindness and compassion and all staff took time to stop and chat with people throughout their work. “We observed warm and positive relationships between people and staff.” Following their visit, inspectors gave Deangate an overall rating of ‘good’, with the same rating across all of the five main areas in the report. Dawn Paley, Deangate manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted with our recent CQC inspection report. “Our staff work incredibly hard to provide a safe and caring environment for those who reside with us and we’re pleased this has been recognised with a ‘Good’ rating across the board.”

News from the Barnsley hub of XPO Logistics

Advertiser announcement

Zoned in on charity total

Slamming event DODGEMS, a carousel and the Devil’s Rock were just a few of the rides that appeared at this year’s Summer Slam. Summer Slam is an annual event organised by XPO Logistics to celebrate the end of the summer peak and as a way of saying thank you to all colleagues for their hard work and commitment. As well as the free rides,

colleagues, family and friends also got to enjoy live music, children’s entertainment, arts and crafts and a magical appearance from Elsa and Belle. More than 1,000 tickets were sold to colleagues and a fantastic total of £,3495 was donated to Grimethorpe Activity Zone from ticket sales.

Eight teams from XPO Barnsley headed down to Northampton, where head office is based, to compete in the annual XPO Logistics World Cup. As reigning champions, the expectations were high but luckily ‘Barnsley Ballers’ managed to secure the win and brought home the winner’s trophy for the second year running. XPO Barnsley remain the World Cup Champions, a fantastic effort from the winning team and a £250 donation was made to the Barnsley Hospital Charity in their name.

THE CHARITY focus for XPO Logistics this year has been supporting Grimethorpe Activity Zone, a local youth centre which provides a safe and supervised place for young people to get help with homework, relax and socialise with friends, and take part in seasonal activities. As well as providing regular volunteers XPO Logistics have donated new kitchen appliances including an oven, microwave and kettle, which will help the centre provide free dinners to the children and various fundraisers have also been arranged by colleagues throughout the year including tombola’s, raffles and sweepstakes. Ken Perritt, account director and Amy Egley, engagement champion presented the youth club with a cheque for £4,350, the fundraising total so far. A donation which will go to supporting the children and families of the local community and XPO Logistics look forward to continuing this support throughout the rest of the year.

XPO Logistics of Houghton Main teamed up with a group of school children from Outwood Academy Carlton to run a social action project. The students were challenged to come up with fundraising ideas that would raise money for local charity Barnsley Hospice. They had a charity Day at school and then a charity day at XPO. There were cakes and bun sales, raffles, orange glitter face paint and even wet sponge the teacher

in the face. A target of £350 was set for the students and during the Academy’s annual end of year award ceremony, Simon Atkinson from the Barnsley Hospice fundraising team popped along to reveal they had actually raised an incredible £905.15. As well as raising that amazing amount, the students said they’d enjoyed the whole process and learning the planning of how to put events on.

Friends ensure church enters the digital age A CHURCH in Wortley is going digital after reaching its target to create an interactive churchyard. Len’s Friends, a community group for St Leonard’s Church in Wortley, started an online campaign to raise funds for digital mapping technology. The group wants to create an interactive 3D map of the churchyard which will detail every floor of the church. It will also allow users to access church archives including burial records and personal family tree research. The initial target for the project was to raise £750 by August 29, however they have now beaten this target and raised more than £760 with five days left to donate. Barbara Lee, from the

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, August 27, 2019 –

Len’s Friends group, said: “We’d been doing some tidying up in the churchyard when we first started the Len’s Friends group, and we uncovered some old gravestones. “We then went to a conference and came across this digital mapping service which we thought was a good way of getting extra information about the church to a wider audience, and then it took off from there.” Andrew Beever, also a member of the community group, added: “We think the response has been fantastic. “The entire group is absolutely thrilled with the money raised and now we can finally get the ball n LEN’S FRIENDS: Dawn Johnson, Barbara Lee, Andrew Berbers and Joan Clark. rolling.”

Woman vows to help others fight anorexia

A WOMAN who has battled with anorexia and bulimia for more than 25 years has set up a support group to help those who need it. Bekkie Hopewood, 37, of Mill View, Bolton-upon-Dearne, began suffering with bulimia aged 12 and when she was taken to the doctors, her symptoms were dismissed as a ‘phase’. Bulimia is an eating disorder and mental health condition where people go through periods of binge eating then make themselves vomit, use laxatives or do extreme amounts of exercise to avoid putting on weight, referred to as ‘purging’. Almost 25 years later, Bekkie still struggles with bulimia and wanted to reach out to others who are going through a similar experience. Bekkie said: “When I went to the GP as a child I was told that I was going through a phase and I would grow out of it. Because it was the 90s, I don’t think there was a lot of awareness about the condition. “As I grew up I was admitted to hospital on several occasions and I even had to be fed through a tube. The physical side effects are not nice, but the mental side is worse. “You sometimes have to wait weeks before you can be seen by a dietician and when you are at your worst, waiting can tip you over the edge.” According to Barnsley’s five year transformation plan, entitled Future in Mind, between September 2017 and September 2018, 53 people were referred to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services due to having an eating disorder. Everyone that was referred was seen within four weeks. Bekkie set up the Facebook group, Barnsley Eating Disorder Support (BEDS), as a way of providing a platform for people to be able to talk to each other and support one another, in particular those who are over 18.

She said: “You are always in active recovery once you are diagnosed with anorexia or bulimia and what I feel is lacking is a support network of people you can talk to when you need it.” The group is a ‘closed group’ on Facebook, meaning users will have to request to become a member and be accepted to view comments. Those who are not members will not be able to see what is posted on the page or interact with the members. Bekkie said: “People who join will have the peace of mind that what they post will not be seen by anyone else and they are free to talk about what they like without being judged. “Fear is a major reason why people do not seek help. I hope the group will encourage people to feel less isolated and be able to talk about their experience and I feel strong enough to be able to offer my tips on how to deal with bulimia. It’s a place where people can confidently or confidentially share their story and we can advise and support them. “Even if the group helps one person, it’s served its purpose. I think the group has the potential to fill the gap between asking for help and receiving help.”

n MISSION: Lucy and James Robinson.

Wedding bells rang for cycling duo... A HUSBAND and wife who paused their 10,500-mile yearlong bike ride to get married in Barnsley are about to continue the rest of their journey. Lucy Robinson (nee Alliott), who is originally from Silkstone but now lives in London, is the granddaughter of former Barnsley Chronicle editor Don Booker, who died last year. Lucy and her husband James Robinson – who got married at Silkstone Church on Saturday – started their Cape 2 Cape adventure at Cape Wrath in the Highlands of Scotland at the beginning of August. The pair are part-way through tackling 17,000km in 365 days in an aim to reach Cape Town in South Africa. The journey was inspired by Yorkshire adventurer Alastair Humphreys, who wrote a book about cycling around the world, including going from South Africa back to Yorkshire. Lucy, 28 said both she and James, 29, are avid cyclists and planned the Cape 2 Cape adventure before they were even engaged. She said: “James has wanted to cycle through Africa for a long time and he got me on board

with the idea. We made it a Cape to Cape adventure as we are going through many countries and wanted to see the beautiful scenery and cycling routes across the UK. “We got engaged between coming up with the idea and now and decided to get married along the way. We wanted that to be in Silkstone as that is where I’m from and where I grew up.” The pair paused their journey last week to prepare for their cycling themed wedding on Saturday, which they celebrated surrounded by family and friends. “It was a fantastic day and it was a cycling-themed wedding,” said Lucy. “There were cycling themed decorations and it was a lot of fun. On the Friday it was tipping it down with rain and we put our wellies on to put up the marquee, but luckily, on the day, it was beautiful sunshine. “We had friends who even cycled there.” The couple say so far they have enjoyed cycling through Cape Wrath – which is the most north-westerly point in mainland Britain. “It was amazing, we had to get a ferry and there were just two vehicles there and it is just so

rural. We saw this couple who live in this lighthouse who are cut off for many months of the year. That was just fascinating.” Lucy said when organising the route she has mostly been looking forward to cycling through Sudan, although she doesn’t know if this will be possible due to the current political unrest. Both Lucy and James aim to be cycling through the Sahara during winter and they say they will organise for family members and friends to come with them for part of the journey, although they don’t know when, and where that will be. For most of the journey they will be camping and even though they are avid cyclists, Lucy said she isn’t looking forward to carrying 35 kilos of equipment around. “We haven’t really been doing a lot of training as we cycle a lot anyway but the tricky bit will be carrying everything. We aren’t really used to that. “It will be interesting, we’re just really looking forward to it.” The couple have set up a blog about their journey and will be posting along the way. n To follow their journey, visit

More action needed on affordable housing – MP A BARNSLEY MP has called for action on affordable housing after new analysis shows at the current rate of building it will take 130 years to house all 1.1m people on council housing waiting lists. Analysis undertaken by the Labour Party shows that over the last three years, an average of 2,123 council homes have been built, whilst 6,374 homes for social rent have been built. However, there are 1,114,477 households on local authorities’ waiting lists. This figure divided by 8,497 equates to 131 years to house everyone on council waiting lists at the current rate of building. And in Barnsley, with nearly 4,000 households on the council housing waiting list, local MP Stephanie Peacock has called on the government to address the housing shortage when Parliament returns following its summer recess. The MP said: “The Tories need to get to grips with this housing crisis, and Labour has a ready-made plan: stop the conversion of social homes into more expensive housing, build a million low-cost homes, and develop the infrastructure like new schools and roads needed to support the changes.”

BARNSLEY’S Cooper Gallery will be one of the first in the country to partner with the British Museum for an innovative new exhibition. The gallery on Church Street has been chosen as one of just four to co-curate the ‘Pushing paper: contemporary drawing from 1970 to now’ exhibition, which has for the first time in the British Museum’s near-300-year history been created collaboratively with other museums. These partners – the Cooper Gallery, Durham’s Oriental Museum, the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, Orkney, and Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea – have been consulted by the British Museum to decide on the exhibition’s themes and research the works included. The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate drawing in its own right, rather than its historic role as preparatory to painting. As part of the arrangement, the Cooper Gallery will also be able to embed its own works to feature alongside those in the exhibition, which will show work by artists such as Yorkshire’s David Hockney, Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry – many of which will be on display to the public for the first time. A spokesman for the Cooper Gallery said: “Our team have worked with the museum and partner galleries on themes, collaboratively selecting the work. “The end result is an outstanding collection of drawings illustrating how artists experiment with the power of paper to express their

ideas, pushing the medium in new directions. We are proud to be one of only four locations in the UK to host the exhibition and the only place in Yorkshire to take this unique opportunity to see this unmissable exhibition.” The exhibition will begin at the British Museum and then travel on to partner museums, allowing more people around the UK the opportunity to see British Museum objects outside London. Hartwig Fischer, British Museum director, said: “It is wonderful that the collaborative conception of ‘Pushing paper’ gives the opportunity for curators and visitors around the UK to benefit from this collective way of working. “In 2018/19, more than 2,800 objects were loaned by the British Museum to 147 venues in the UK, reaching 10.5 million people outside London, which is nearly twice as many as visit the Museum in Bloomsbury in one year.” British Museum trustee Grayson Perry said: “Since the dawn of time, drawing has been and still is, a vital and central component of visual art. How else would I get an image out of my head and into the world.” ‘Pushing paper’ is one of the British Museum’s first exhibitions to focus exclusively on drawing from the 1970s to the modern day. The exhibition will come to the Cooper Gallery between December 9, 2020 and March 6, 2021, after opening at the British Museum next month.

n FUNDRAISER: Robert Blackburn hands over a cheque for £720.85 to the Barnsley MS Society.


Robert’s fundraising efforts for MS Society go swimmingly A SERIAL fundraiser from Hoyland has helped to raise more than £700 for a local multiple sclerosis charity. Robert Blackburn, 37, of Guest Street, travelled to Keswick with friends Ramona Ozola, Steve Burnley and Tony Housley in May to raise cash for the Barnsley MS Society. All four completed a five-kilometre run but Robert, a swimming teacher at Royston Leisure Centre, opted to complete the open-water swim despite organisers cancelling the event as a precaution. Robert said: “Apparently there was algae in the water so obviously they can-

celled the sponsored swim to avoid any complications, but I’d spoke to another swimmers who had already been in the water and it appeared to be fine, so I went ahead. “It was a very worthwhile event and money raised will go towards a fantastic cause. One of the swimmers in my class, Steve Snell, has MS and I wanted to give a little back for all the hard work he puts in.” A total of £720.85 was handed over to the Barnsley MS Society at a cheque presentation in Royston, while a further £160 was given via an online page to the London MS Society.

WAB pictures of the week... Summer still simmering on YOU’VE been making the most of the summer holidays! Here’s a selection of what we received this week... Right: From Amber Bristowe. Below, left to right: Nicola Robinson, Kathleen Burgess and Vicki Middleton.

BOYZLIFE brings together members of two of the biggest boybands in history, Boyzone and Westlife, to perform a whole host of their biggest chart hits. Brian McFadden enjoyed 12 UK and Ireland number ones as a member of Westlife, including a record-breaking seven top spots in a row. The band also boast four number one albums and more than 30 million record sales in total. Since Westlife, Brian has enjoyed international solo success, including a UK number one with ‘Real to Me’. With Boyzone, Keith Duffy has enjoyed similar success, including six UK number one singles and 16 out of 17 of their first single releases making the top five. With five number one albums also to their credit, Boyzone achieved worldwide sales of over 25 million. The unmissable Boyzlife show has already been performed for more than 20,000 adoring fans since the

pair came together in 2016. With two completely sold out tours under their belts in partnership with Hilton Hotels, as well as their unforgettable 2017 December Christmas Tour, this is an evening that is certainly not to be missed. Boyzlife will be performing at the Sheffield Foundry on September 15 and WAB have teamed up with MP Promotions to give one lucky reader the chance to watch them perform live. To win these amazing tickets, all you have to do is answer this question: “Which band released the album, ‘Turnaround’?

A week in WAB history...

Celebration day at RSPB Old Moor 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 August 2011... August 8 RSPB Old Moor Celebrates Awards The RSPB at Old Moor has secured a clutch of awards as part of the National Renaissance Waterways Awards run by The Waterways Trust and BURA (British Urban Regeneration Association). The Dearne Valley was the winner in the recreation and tourism category – Old Moor attracts over 100,000 visitors a year and 43,000 visitors annually use the Trans Pennine Trail in the Dearne Valley. Other attractions include

the nearby Manvers Waterfront water sports centre, a bike hire scheme. Facilitates for disabled people to go cycling and plans for a mountain bike centre are proposed for the future. The Dearne Valley Green Heart partnership, involving the three local authorities of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, the Environment Agency, Natural England and RSPB, were also winners in the Flood Risk Management category – for the innovative combination of creating new places for nature, improved access and flood storage areas. They were runners up in the Natural Environment category – a massive achievement for an area once “the most despoiled area in

Europe” – and commended in the Partnership working category for their collaborative working with a range of partners and stake holders to deliver the aims and objectives of the Dearne Valley Green Heart. August 10 Former Royston High Plans Get Go-Ahead BARNSLEY Council’s decision making cabinet have approved plans to sell off the site of the former Royston High School for a new development. The council have accepted an offer from Kier Properties for the site on Midland Road for a mixed used development, comprising a food superstore, retail shops, family pub and residential dwellings. £100,000 from the sale of

the land will be used to fund future specialist reports and planning application fees which will enhance the value of future schools sites due to be released for disposal. August 31 Roundabout Saved After Campaign THE Historic roundabout that sits in Barnsley Market has been saved, thanks to a public campaign and lottery funding. A Facebook campaign launched yesterday won

over 2,500 local’s support in mere hours when it emerged that the fate of the roundabout - which has been in the market for decades – was in the balance. Now, Barnsley Museums is working with the owners to ensure this treasured piece of Barnsley’s history is not lost. Experience Barnsley will be using Heritage Lottery-funding to carefully restore parts of it. Favourite pieces will be installed in pride-of-place in the new museum for children to play on and for people to share wonderful memories about. The other parts of the roundabout will be taken into special storage, so it can hopefully be restored in the future. Dr John Tanner, from Barnsley Museums, said:

“We are really pleased and proud that we will be looking after the roundabout, such a treasured piece of Barnsley’s heritage.” Current roundabout owner Stewart Robinson, remembers: “The Barnsley Roundabout has been in our family for 52 years, everyone loves it and we’re really pleased it will be looked after long into the future. “We’re now looking for other ways in which our family can continue to entertain future generations visiting the town too.” The roundabout has been out of action for a few months and Experience Barnsley had been in talks with the owners over the last few weeks to try to come up with a plan to save it.

Barnsley’s home comforts are over after Luton horror show BARNSLEY’S 29-match unbeaten run at Oakwell in league games came to an end with a 3-1 home defeat to Luton Town who scored all their goals in the first 31 minutes. Luton netted in the second and fifth minutes then added another just after the half-hour mark as the Reds played very poorly in the first half. The home side were much better after the break and replied through Mallik Wilks but eventually were beaten. The Reds had not lost in 29 league games at Oakwell since March 2018, a run that lasted 545 days. They have now not won in five games, losing four, since the opening day win over Fulham. Cauley Woodrow was still injured but there were two changes to the side that lost 2-0 at Birmingham City on Tuesday. Dani Pinillos replaced Ben Williams at left-back and Mallik Wilks came in for Conor Chaplin. Mamadou Thiam played up front on his own with Mike Bahre just behind him in a 4-4-1-1 formation. Barnsley were firmly second best in the first half, shell-shocked by their disastrous start, and although they had a couple of chances the rampant visitors could have been further ahead at the break. Jacob Butterfield, who played 100 games for the Reds after coming through their academy, blasted a 20-yard strike into the bottom left corner with just 80 seconds on the clock after Bambo Diaby blocked an Andrew Shinnie effort inside the box following a

good move down the right flank. It was 2-0 in the fifth minute when goalkeeper Sami Radlinger missed a cross from the left, leaving his goal exposed, and the ball was passed across the sixyard box by ex-Red James Bree for James Collins to turn in from close range. Radlinger prevented a third goal in the 18th minute with an excellent save using his left foot to divert wide a Collins effort which was a redirection of a shot by another former Barnsley player Ryan Tunnicliffe following a good run down the right by Kazenga Lua Lua. Radlinger also denied Harry Cornick from a tight angle on the left of the box then fumbled a shot by Bree and had to scramble to gather the ball and stop it being turned in by waiting Luton attackers. It was 3-0 on 31 minutes when Cornick smashed in a powerful left-footed strike from 15 yards out after a Shinnie free-kick from the left was not cleared properly. Wilks thought he had pulled one back when his header following Cameron McGeehan’s corner was clawed out by Simon Sluga with the Barnsley forward claiming it went over the line. Thomas then blazed over from just inside the area on the right after bringing down a cross by Alex Mowatt. Stendel made two changes at the break, bringing on left-back Williams for Pinillos and introducing winger Jordan Green at rightback for Mads Andersen with Toby Sibbick moving from the right to

The home fans were extremely loud for their team when the match restarted after the interval, and were almost rewarded when Thiam narrowly headed wide from a McGeehan corner. Thiam then forced Sluga into a good save, diving to his left, after Thomas won the ball off Luke Bolton and played the Frenchman in on the left of the box. Luton thought they had a fourth when a free-kick was headed down to Collins who volleyed in but the offside flag was raised. Thiam then had a third chance of the second half when he latched onto a long ball from Bambo Diaby on

the left of the box but Sluga saved the shot from a tight angle. Diaby had to leave the field through injury midway through the second half and was replaced by Aapo Halme. The Reds got the goal their second half performance had warranted on 72 minutes when Wilks fired in a low shot from close range after a good low cross from the left by Mowatt. It was his first goal for the club. Sluga had to dive to his left to push away a long-range low effort by Mowatt whose resulting corner was headed narrowly wide by Wilks. Thiam had another chance in the 89th minute but blazed over the bar 12 yards out after good

work on the right by Green and Thomas. Barnsley (4-4-1-1): Radlinger; Sibbick, Andersen (Green HT), Diaby (Halme 67mins), Pinillos (Williams HT); Thomas, McGeehan, Mowatt, Wilks; Bahre; Thiam. Unused: Collins, Schmidt, Oduor, Chaplin. Yellow cards: Diaby, Bahre. Goals: Wilks 72. Luton: Sluga; Bolton, Pearson, Bradley, Bree (Galloway 90+3mins); Tunnicliffe, Shinnie, Butterfield; LuaLua (Mpanzu 82mins), Collins, Cornick (Lee 85). Unused: Shea, Mpanzu, Moncur, Brown, Galloway, Jones. Yellow cards: Lua Lua. Goals: Butterfield 2, Collins 5, Cornick 31.
