Call for tough new approach to litter louts TOUGHER measures against littering and fly-tipping have been demanded by a councillor dispirited after seeing ‘hundreds of thousands of pounds’ spent on dealing with the problem in recent decades. There is concern that current local authority tactics for controlling littering are not changing public behaviour – though it is acknowledged the problem is a national issue – and now councillors representing the Dearne area on Barnsley Council are to work with officials to look for a new approach. They have questioned whether more punitive measures, not necessarily financial, could be imposed against those caught littering or dumping rubbish as part of a package to improve performance on changing attitudes. Work has already started in schools, with the aim of forming the attitude among children that they need to take responsibility for their neighbourhood with the hope that will also be fed back to parents. But Coun May Noble told a meeting of the Dearne Area Council:

BARNSLEY FC will head into Saturday’s eagerly-awaited derby at Sheffield Wednesday buoyed by a 1-0 home win over Fulham on the opening day of the Championship campaign. It took new arrival Luke Thomas, recruited from Derby County, just 13 minutes to make his mark. He scored with a well-struck shot from Mike Bahre’s pass, much to the delight of home fans in a 14,823 crowd.

“We have thrown hundreds of thousands of pounds at it over the years and we are not seeing any improvement. Do we need to do it differently? People are waiting for us to do it for them.” The area council uses a company called Twiggs to work on environmental schemes and a major component of their approach is to encourage volunteers to take part, with the ultimate aim of persuading communities to take over totally. But Coun Noble said that was not working and stated: “We need to find some way of working with people to say ‘right, it’s over to you’. ‘You give people a letter with a community protection notice and it doesn’t make any difference.” Individuals were not dealt with as harshly as companies found fly-tipping, she said, and added: “We have to have something much harsher than we have got which makes an impact. “I think we need to sit down and discuss how we deal with it in a different way.” n Reporting by the Local Democracy Service.

n HOW ABOUT THAT: Luke Thomas celebrates his debut goal for Barnsley against Fulham. The Red were 1-0 winners on Saturday.

Timber company and TV chef cook up recipe to get people into the kitchen BARNSLEY business Howarth Timber has partnered with TV chef Peter Sidwell on a collection of seasonal recipes. The presenter of the Channel 4 series Lakes on a Plate and author of a string of cookery books is working with the Stocks Lane-based company to create exclusive recipes for their website every month to encourage more people to utilise their kitchens. The focus of the recipes will be seasons and events including anything from comforting winter dishes to festive foods.

Peter said: “It is great to see a company such as Howarth actively promoting cooking at home for family and friends. It will give homeowners chance to really show off their new kitchen and I can’t wait to see what people create.” Gavin Knowles, from Howarth Timber, added: “Working with Peter was a natural fit for us, as he is already a brand embassador for Symphony Kitchens, so understands the quality of products. “Peter has created some fabulous recipes or us which really bring to life great British produce.”

Sit down and enjoy stand-up Dave A STAND-UP comic is set to bring in plenty of laughs when he comes to The Civic. Dave Johns, who along with being a comedian is a film actor and writer, is best known for his role in Ken Loach’s critically acclaimed film I, Daniel Blake. He appears at The Civic on Sunday, September 15. Dave said: “Science says that laughter releases millions of endorphins that produce a feeling of euphoria. Laughing can also make you wee yourself. I can’t wait to make people laugh and wee themselves on my tour.” For tickets, call the box office on 327 000 or visit barnsleycivic.

H to Z of football kits A BARNSLEY football team has some surprise new supporters after an unusual connection led to them sending old kits to a side in Africa. Hoyland Town Magpies, based at Elsecar Cricket Club, have been playing in the local leagues since 1997. But the side has never set foot outside of Yorkshire, let alone the UK – so it was a surprise when they were asked if they had any old kits they could spare for a side who ply their trade in Zanzibar’s second division.

The link came from Zanzibar-born Hamid Khamis-Burtoft, the parent of three boys who had all played for the team. After chatting with under 16s coach Mark Pickering about an upcoming trip home to see family and friends, Hamid got onto the topic of local football in his home country. The conversation moved on, and Mark said he found himself clambering through bags of old kits – shirts, shorts and socks – to send over to Kiembe Samaki, who play in

Zanzibar’s second division but are forced to play with whatever kit they can find, on a dusty dirt pitch. “Hamid’s got three lads who have all played for the Magpies over the years,” said Mark, who has been with the club for around eight years. “So I know him really well and see him once or twice a week. “He was going over with his family to see some friends, and we got chatting about football, and he said they play with some terrible kit over there. They have got nothing really.

“We’d got some old kits in storage bags, and we went through them and got the best ones out and sent them over. “We just say if we can help in any way, we will. “All we said was we want that photograph when they put the kits on.” Mark said the team would be printing the photo and framing it to put on the wall of the clubhouse, and he would be talking to Hamid when he returned this week to talk about what else the Magpies could do in Zanzibar.

Firefighters from all four stations deal with hay blaze FIRE crews were drafted in from Barnsley’s four stations to tackle a huge blaze near Tankersley. Hay bales caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning, resulting in more than 30 firefighters rushing to the scene on Pea Fields Lane. A spokesperson from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue confirmed no injuries were sustained during the incident and an investigation to ascertain why the fire started is underway.

Drive for devolution goes on LOCAL leaders in Barnsley have presented the Prime Minister with new proposals to ‘urgently unlock’ the benefits of devolution by opening the way to a single deal for the county. One Yorkshire leaders, including Barnsley Central MP and Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis and council leader Sir Steve Houghton, published their proposals ahead of Yorkshire Day last Thursday. They would see a series of interim devolution deals agreed across Yorkshire to run in parallel with the existing Sheffield City Region agreement. Negotiations would continue with the government to have a One Yorkshire devolution agreement completed by 2022, the end of the current Dan Jarvis’ mayoral term.

An independent economic study has shown a One Yorkshire devolution deal could deliver economic benefits worth £30bn a year, or £5,400 per person. Dan added: “I welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to deliver Northern Powerhouse Rail, more powers for Mayors offering real devolution for communities, providing better bus services and committing greater funds for the Stronger Towns Fund. “What the north really needs is a sustainable programme of investment to level regional inequalities and unlock our huge potential. “This plan details a vision for the future of our rail services which will transform rail travel for our communities. We now need to see action, not words.

“I will be doing what I can and will be working closely with fellow leaders in the north and with the Prime Minister and his cabinet to ensure we deliver.” For Barnsley, the bold plan could see updated platforms at the current interchange station ready for improved intercity links, as well as a raft of highway improvements to drive down congestion and drive up economic growth. The Integrated Rail Plan, unveiled last month, sets out a vision for how the region will be better connected by high speed as well as conventional rail networks. A key element of the plan is a proposed new Barnsley Dearne Valley railway station, expected to be in Goldthorpe, which will form part of the Northern Powerhouse Rail network

which will connect Liverpool, Manchester and its airport, to Leeds, as well as linking to the proposed HS2 rail project. The new Barnsley Dearne Valley station will offer connections to Sheffield in 12 minutes, Leeds in 15, York in 20, Birmingham Curzon Street in 56 and London Euston in 95. “We’ve already applied for £200m of funding but the process requires us as a region to have this plan in place,” added Dan. “The important bit is that it has the support of all local authorities as well as Transport for the North and the Northern Powerhouse Partnership. “Our railways aren’t fit for the 21st century and we need to urgently improve the services, the affordability of tickets, the frequency of train services and passengers’ experience.”

MIND over matter for cyclists A THRILL-SEEKING duo will take part in a 24-hour mountain biking endurance event in sub-zero temperatures to raise funds for a mental health charity. Katie Marlow and her friend Jason Beard, who are both from Hoyland, will battle miles of gruelling terrain and 17 hours of darkness in Scotland this winter in an aim to raise £1,000 for MIND. The pair, who will ride as MTB for Mental Health, are training for the Strathpuffer 24-hour mountain biking endurance event near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Katie, who works at Wake Smith Solicitors in Sheffield and who set up cycle group MTB for Mental Health last year, said: “We have been lucky enough to get two of 150 places in the Strathpuffer 24 hour mountain bike race and will ride for MIND. That was my only condition for signing up. “This is widely renowned as one of the hardest mountain biking races in the world with 24 hours of racing in the Highlands in January, in the cold and in 17 hours of darkness. It’s a brutal mix of ice, wind, hail, mud and snow and maybe, if we are lucky, a glorious Scottish winter sunrise.” The aim of the endurance event is for participants to

do as many laps of the seven-mile course as possible in 24 hours. “I’m aiming for ten laps, any more will be a bonus,” said Katie. The duo will be supported by Hoyland-based scaffolder Jason’s sister Laura. Katie added: “Laura has agreed to come with us and be our support team. She will more than likely be the reason we make it through the night, and we have told her to prepare for tears, mainly from me. “My mountain bike group is called MTB for Mental Health and that is why we are supporting MIND charity. This cause means a lot to us and is more than a worthy cause to suffer for.” Hoyland-based Katie set up MTB for Mental Health last year after struggling with mental health issues for most of her adult life. Her fortnightly wellness rides now attract eight cyclists who enjoy relaxed rides in and around Sheffield and the Peak District. “Mountain biking has really helped me gain a sense of adventure and fun in my life and if we can raise money for a great cause, so much the better,” said Katie.

Berneslai up among the best social landlords

BERNESLAI Homes has entered the UK’s top 20 social landlords list. The list, produced by 24housing, reflects social landlords up and down the country who are ‘committed to making good quality service a priority and taking resident concerns seriously’. Berneslai Homes was one of five ALMOs who made the list – arms length management organisations which manage council housing on behalf of local authorities. Berneslai Homes was recognised for achievements including delivering an overall 89 per cent satisfaction for its core services, offering value for money, early help and prevention working with young carers and Dr Barnardo’s, mental health workers’ interventions, opening five dementia cafes and none community gardens and allotments, and increasing housing supply with 58 acquisitions of properties including long term empty homes, conversion of ex-nurses accommodation and new-build housing. “We are all about ‘Town Spirit’ and ‘Doing the Right Thing’ for our tenants and it’s great that we have been recognised for this nationally,” said Berneslai Homes chief executive Helen Jaggar.

A FUNDRAISING team who have already raised more than £20,000 for Barnsley Hospice walked continually on a treadmill – for 25 hours. The team, dubbed Little and Large, was initially made up of Gavin Coles and Steve Gilbert, who first began fundraising for the hospice two years ago. However, their team has now expanded to include Owen Hedges, Scott Thresh and Gavin’s children, Mason and Chloe Coles. The team walked a total of 110 miles – the equivalent of

more than four marathons – and raised £1,577. “I’m never still,” said Gavin, 41, from Darley Avenue, Athersley South. “I always want to do something else and I’m one of those people who can’t just sit down. “Last year we did a 30-hour non-stop cycle which was difficult and this year we thought we would make it harder for ourselves by doing the walk.” The team completed the 25-hour mission at Asda on Old Mill Lane, using a treadmill supplied by DW Fitness.

Good report but still room to improve RECOMMENDATIONS identifying areas where Barnsley Council could improve will result in the formation of an action plan designed to further boost its service. A team of offcers from the Local Government Association spent four days in the town in February and looked at areas including the council’s leadership, financial planning and its capacity to deliver its objectives. The report, discussed by cabinet members, said the council is a ‘high-performing’ one with clear and tangible ambitions for its residents, communities and stakeholders. Its leadership and finances were praised, while staff told inspectors they enjoyed working for the council. However, the report outlined recommendations, and said: “The retirement of the former chief executive (Diana Terris, who was replaced by Sarah Norman earlier this month) is creating anxiety for some staff who have concerns that the council’s overall direction and ethos will change. “There is, at times, a lack of clarity from staff about how values, priorities, initiatives and outcomes relate to each other, and which are most important. “The downside of the council’s

ambitions is that there are many initiatives to be delivered by a significantly reduced workforce, creating concerns from staff about overload. “Many current plans come to an end in 2020 and this provides an opportunity to review and streamline strategies. “There are significant risks around school exclusions, NHS waiting times for assessments and the cost of placements to the council. “A co-production approach with parents and partners may lead to a better and more cost-effective services.” Council leader Sir Steve Houghton told cabinet members that the overall findings were very pleasing – although he warned against complacency. “This is a great reflection of everyone’s work, especially so with the austerity background we have faced and continue to face with uncertainty remaining about Brexit,” he said. “We’ll keep working away but there aren’t many councils which achieve a report as positive as this one these days. “It’s nothing short of remarkable but it did find areas where improvements can be made and we’ll put an action plan in place to further what we offer.”

Brothers are back from England duty TWO Barnsley brothers who represented England in ice and inline hockey tournaments have returned home bolstered by their European adventures. Will and Eddie Harper, 17 and 13 respectively, from Cavendish Road, play both the roller and iceskate versions of the sport. Will started skating aged eight and attending his older brother’s practices made Eddie want to start skating, which he did aged three. “We went ice skating for fun because they wanted to try it, and they just took to it,” said the boys’ dad, Mark. “They both play for Sheffield Ice Hockey Academy and they both play for the Norton Cyclones (based in Rotherham) in inline hockey. “They’re really good at inline hockey, which they got into a few years ago, and it’s actually helped them with their skating because it’s harder.” Through their hard work and training in the sports, Will earned a place in the England inline junior men’s Under-19 team, representing his country at the World Roller Games in Barcelona, while Eddie played for England Under13s at ice hockey in Finland. “Eddie competed in Turku in April,” added Mark.

“It was a tournament designed to make them better players so they go along and play against other teams to try and learn new skills. “They played in a bunker that was 40 metres underground which was pretty awesome.” Eddie and his team won the tournament and he will now progress to the England Under-15 team. Will played in Barcelona at the World Roller Games, an event which promotes roller-based sports such as inline hockey and

roller derby. England ranked eleventh out of the 20 teams competing in the event. “The team had a bit of a rocky start and lost their first two rounds,” said Mark. “But they managed to claw it back, and after that start, eleventh was the highest they could finish. “I was really nervous watching Will play, I kept shouting things because I wanted them to win, but I don’t really know a lot about the game so I didn’t really know what I was shouting about.”

Pointing the way in Penistone... COUNCILLORS are to make a start on tackling a chronic shortage of signage in Penistone. The issue is already part of proposals in a major Barnsley Council funding scheme. But a request by Penistone Church Football Club for cash to pay for signs to its venue brought the problem to the fore. At a meeting of the town council, members considered the club’s application for help. Coun Andrew Millner wanted the matter to be channelled through the Principal Towns initiative which promises to bring hundreds of thousands of pounds to Penistone and which lists signage as a priority for improvement. But Coun Steve Marsh said: “That could take months. These people want something doing now. We don’t want to kick this into the long grass. “There is nothing to tell people where they are going in the town centre. Surely we can take this up ourselves. There will be a cost but we can look at that. “We want people to come to the town and we should be dealing with that. Going through the PTI could take two years.” Ward councillor David Greenhough said: “Signage is high on the list for the PTI. I would make it a priority from the funding pot.” The application was agreed.

Regeneration continues MULTI-MILLION pound contracts will be awarded to companies in Barnsley over the next two years after a lucrative deal was struck in order to deliver the next phase of the town centre’s regeneration. The Glass Works’ phase two is the second stage of the wider £180m project, which began in March 2016 and has already delivered the state-of-the-art Library @ the Lightbox and the new-look Barnsley Market. The second phase is expected to take two years to complete and contractors Henry Boot – who were responsible for the earlier work – have been signed up by Barnsley Council to deliver it. They are spending £20m with local companies as part of the project, helping to safeguard or create 200 jobs in the town, and six out of ten of their own staff working on the project already live in Barnsley. Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said: “Henry Boot have already delivered fantastic results, so we are pleased to have them on board for the next phase of the scheme. “Their commitment to not only the project but the local community is outstanding and they have

made a significant impact in terms of employment and educational opportunities. “The team is great to work with and there is a real partnership ethos across the whole project – we would like to congratulate them on being appointed and look forward to continuing to work with them.” According to the Local Data Company, the town has one of the most improved high streets in the country despite it being several years away from completion, which Coun Houghton said was testament to the quality of what’s already been achieved. “It’s really positive as even though the town centre’s regeneration is way off completion, footfall figures show that shoppers are responding to the changes we’re making,” he added. “The aim has always been to attract visitors and the market in particular has had a big impact on that. “It’s important we’re not complacent and continue to do our best to improve Barnsley as a destination which people want to come to.” The next phase includes 100,000 sq ft of new

Two key leisure anchors – the 13-screen Cineworld complex and Superbowl UK – are also part of phase two while more than 90,000 sq ft of leisure facilities will also be delivered. Ryan O’Loughlin, director of Henry Boot, added: “It is fantastic that we are able to continue our partnership with Barnsley Council on The Glass Works project. “Phase one of the

scheme has already delivered the regeneration of Barnsley Market, the new library and extensive public realm works. “It is a multiple award-winning project but the part of the contract we are most proud of is our work in the local community. “Sixty per cent of project staff are from Barnsley and have a real passion for ensuring the legacy of the project extends beyond bricks and mortar. “To date, we have supported more than 100 local training, employment and community projects with in excess of £250,000

in funding. We have established the Barnsley Construction Skills Village and Better Barnsley initiatives, both with the aim of leaving a legacy beyond the completion of the project. “More than £20m in contracts have been awarded to Barnsley-based businesses with more than 200 new and safeguarded jobs. “Our work with local education providers is unprecedented, with 250 educational visits and workshops with Barnsley schools and 285 work experience placements for local students.”

OPENING CEREMONY: Mayor of Barnsley, Coun Pauline Markham, is pictured alongside Coun Charlie Wraith, who represents the Cudworth ward, and Chief Constable Stephen Watson at South Yorkshire Police’s Ring Farm.

Mounted police base back in the area CHIEF Constable Stephen Watson officially opened South Yorkshire Police’s mounted section in Cudworth. Ring Farm, which is currently home to ten police horses, has new showering, drying and changing facilities, a computer room and a space for eating and resting. A building on the farm has also been refurbished and will now house the officers and staff, meaning that they can be based

on the farm with their four-legged partners. South Yorkshire Police, one of only 13 police forces in the UK with a mounted department, previously based its team in Cudworth before the department moved to Wakefield. However, last year it was announced that they would return to Cudworth – together with a £275,000 investment package to refurbish Ring Farm. Coun Charlie Wraith, who repre-

sents the Cudworth ward and was present at last Friday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside Mayor of Barnsley Coun Pauline Markham, told the Chronicle the police’s U-turn had been a welcome one. “Police are vital in communities like Cudworth,” he added. “The village’s station reopened last year and the investment in Ring Farm provides further proof of what’s being done on a neighbourhood policing level. Long may that continue.”

Milestone moment for local history group

A LOCAL history group has made history itself as it celebrates its 40th birthday. Wath Community History Group was formed in July 1979 as a way for those with an interest in the history of the ‘Queen of Villages’ to find likeminded people they could share their research with and discuss the heritage of the area. Member Alex Fleming said: “Our inaugural meeting was 40 years ago, July 24 1979. Mercifully, some of us are still here and

able to remember it as well. “The group has met at least quarterly for each of the past 40 years to discuss many different aspects of Wath’s heritage – coal mining, railways, public health, education, friendly societies, musical heritage, participation in the world wars. “Also, the troupe has organised exhibitions, recorded interviews created ‘history walks’ around the town and published books about Wath. “Membership is very strong,

with 40 to 50 regularly attending the meetings.” On display at the meeting were original documents on aspects of local history – many of them decades old – and members took part in quizzes about the songs, films and sporting events of the group’s inaugural year. As part of the celebrations there is an extensive local history display in Wath Library, and a number of members took part in a history trail in the town.

Flying start for Barnsley

New headteacher committed to getting school back on track THE new headteacher of a Barnsley primary school that dropped from ‘outstanding’ to requiring improvement is committed to raising standards to get it back where it belongs. In its most recent Ofsted inspection, Worsbrough Common Primary School was judged as requiring improvement amid declining teaching standards, high absence rates and the development of a ‘culture of low expectations’. But incoming head Rebecca Paddock (pictured), who is set to start in September, is dead-set on stabilising the school after what inspectors called a ‘period of turbulence’. “Ofsted have said it needs to be improving outcomes, and for me that means Worsbrough Common and the community around it all being set on making the school the best it can

Open day BARNSLEY Fire Station will hold an open day to highlight the importance of fire safety and to give the public the chance to look around the facility. It will feature demonstrations from the fire crew, including a simulated road traffic collision and what to do if there is a fire in your home. “We show a chip pan fire and what can happen when water is poured on it,” said watch manager Richard Barr. “It can escalate the situation from a small fire to a blaze.” Food and other stalls will be featured at the open day which takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, August 17.

be – for the children and their families,” said the teacher, 38, originally from Surrey. “It really is a great community, and there’s a sense that it is the community’s school. “That’s something very important to me, that there is a clear vision for everybody of what we want the school to be. “There has been a period of change, but having a full-time headteacher is going to help, especially with regards helping relationships with parents and getting them involved where we can. “We’ve got an amazing team of teachers, so I know whatever I do is going to be supported. It’s definitely a team effort – you can’t run a school on your own.” One thing noted in the school’s last inspection, in December, was a strong relationship between pupils – 448 of them – and adults.

LUKE THOMAS scored a debut goal to give Barnsley a flying start to the new Championship season. The former Derby County midfielder netted 13 minutes into the Oakwell meeting with relegated Fulham to give the promoted Reds a 1-0 victory. Thomas made the most of a Mike Bahre pass to net with a well-struck shot. Barnsley defender Mads Andersen twice cleared off the line and Fulham substitute Anthony Knockaert forced a good save from goalkeeper Samuel Radlinger as the London side pushed for a leveller, but Daniel Stendel’s men held out. Stendel has rung the changes over the close-season and Barnsley had six debutants in all. “I’m very happy about the result but more about the performance,” he said. “We knew that Fulham have a good squad but if we played with more conviction we had a chance to win this game. “Most of the time we played really well. Fulham had some chances in the second half, but we deserved to win.” Next up for Barnsley is Saturday’s big derby trip to Sheffield Wednsday, who kicked off with a convincing 3-1 win at Reading under caretaker manager Lee FAMILIAR FACE: Fulham’s ex-Barnsley player Alfie Mawson made an Bullen. unsuccessful return to Oakwell with the London side.

This was the WAB week...


Plenty going on to fill summer holidays

Ava Rose wins!

THOSE flash floods were something else! I’m really glad to hear that there were no serious repercussions and when you see what North Yorkshire suffered, we should be grateful it wasn’t any worse. We are officially two weeks into the summer holidays. How are we coping? I had the opportunity to go to Meadowhall and take my daughter to the Avery UK wendy house near to the Oasis food court. It was beautiful and there were several craft activities to take part in. My daughter is very creative so she had so much fun making things. I had the classic, ‘that’s beautiful’ face on and her creation now sits proudly on the fridge. With the number of craft activities she will be taking part in over the next month I’ve got no idea where I will be putting them

all! I may have to use the grandparents’ fridge as back up. Dancing Town returns this weekend. I’m really excited to see you all getting your dancing shoes on and learning new moves or just enjoying the various nights that will be taking place. I’ll definitely make an effort to get down to the 90s night on Saturday, August 17. I love singing along to tunes that I grew up listening to. A bit of Britney Spears, TLC and Destiny’s Child, while my favourite song that I bellow every single time is Dreamer by Livin’ Joy. Absolute banger! How excited are we for Nando’s to come to tarn? I absolutely love their food and I’m excited to know that all I have to do is walk to town on my lunch break and I can eat one. I’m loving watching tarn come along and it’s an amazing asset to have. ’Ave a good week, Altine

EACH week we give away a pass to Playmania to one of Tarn’s cutest kids. This week’s winner is three-year-old Ava Rose Rasul. Isn’t she beautiful? Enjoy your time at Playmania!

HAPPY DAY: My daughter was well entertained at the Avery UK wendy house at Meadowhall.

The time is right to join the club SAVE money and pay monthly for your pet’s essential preventative care with our Pet Health Club Are you looking for a new, easy and cost effective way to spread the price of your pet’s essential healthcare over 12 months?

They cover regular ongoing costs like vaccinations, parasite treatments, health checks and advice. Whether your pet is young or old, their Pet Health Plan will be designed specifically around their needs and requirements.

A week in WAB history

WAB pictures of the week

Fast-food giants to open

Summer time...

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 last year... August 3 McDonald’s coming to town centre WORK will begin on the construction of a new fast-food restaurant on the edge of the town centre. Fast food giant McDonald’s have confirmed the work will begin this summer, after being granted permission late last year. The new restaurant will be located opposite Morrisons off Westway, and demolition contractors have spent the last few weeks pulling down the old Gala Bingo hall, previously Delta Bowl bowling alley, to make way for it. It will be in addition to its nearby Old Mill Lane site, and others at Stairfoot and Tankersley. The new restaurant is expected to create 65 full and parttime jobs.

August 3 Stately Home to appear on Channel 4 A BIRD’S-eye view of one of the country’s biggest stately homes will be broadcast. Wentworth Woodhouse will be the star of Sunday night’s Channel 4 show Hidden Britain by drone. Sir Tony Robinson will be using the latest aerial filming technology to show viewers stunning new aspects of the 18th century house, which is currently being restored by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. The house was built between 1725 and 1750.

August 29 Barnsley Bitter one of the best in the UK ONE of Barnsley’s most recognisable beers has been named as one of the best around. Acorn Brewery’s Barnsley Bitter won a bronze award at the Champion Beer of Britain competition, organised by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale (left). Acorn’s managing director and head brewer Dave Hughes said: “Competition is ferocious, so we are absolutely delighted that CAMRA have recognised us.” August 29 Volunteers clean up Barnsley Town Centre SEVERAL volunteers participated in a cleanup event in the town centre last Wednesday. The clean-up was arranged by the Safer Neighbourhood Service, and 24 volunteers spent several hours sprucing up George Yard and Hanson Street, including giving the area a fresh lick of paint.

THE summer holidays are well and truly underway. Here’s a round-up of the pictures we have recently received... Right: Submitted by Collette Bolton. Below, from left, submitted by Laura Pye and Jo Dallamore.

Chance to win tickets to the World Famous Elvis Show Elvis Presley.

ELVIS PRESLEY produced songs that we still love to sing along to today, 40-odd years after his death. The King of Rock and Roll is regarded as one of the most significant cultural artists of the 20th Century. Chris Connor brings an authentic tribute to the man from Tupelo, Mississippi and his performances are so good he was endorsed by The Telegraph as the world’s best tribute show in 2016. The World Famous Elvis Show features the live energetic band ‘The Steels’ which recreates 2 huge concerts from the Elvis era. This show respectively and authentically recreates Elvis at his very best. You will feel that you have been transported back in time. Chris Connor will be performing at the Sheffield City Hall on September 7 and WAB have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. To be in with a chance of winning, just answer this question: “What year was ‘Suspicious Minds’ released? Send your answer along with your name and mobile number to or send in your entry to WAB Elvis, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The closing date is next Tuesday, August 13. Good luck!
