Display records miners’ efforts
Running start for councillor
AN ARCHIVE featuring a banner from the 1984 to 85 miners’ strike has opened in Royston. The archive, at Royston Lifelong Learning Centre, is a permanent display by the Royston branch of Women Against Pit Closures. Coun Graham Kyte said: “I would put Women Against Pit Closures right up there alongside the Bryant and May Match Girls, the Suffragettes and other movements which made a significant impact on our way of life. “Sadly the strike was lost and the pits closed but what they did to try and prevent these things happening had a massive impact. ”It is right and proper that their efforts should be recorded for future generations.” The archive has been created in collaboration with pupils from Carlton Community College and the history group.
Mother-of-three and breast cancer survivor Tracey Cheetham is looking forward to serving Royston after being elected. Lynsey Bradford found out her plans.
New councillor: Tracey Cheetham.
“I was absolutely over the moon,” says Tracey Cheetham, recalling the moment her name was called out as councillor for the Royston ward. “I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it. I’ve had my induction and been sworn in and I’ve tried to hit the ground running and make sure I can start doing something straight away.” Tracey, wife of Coun Tim Cheetham, is involved with the church and enjoys the morning school run. She had campaigned across the borough throughout Barnsley Central by-election, which saw Dan Jarvis elected as MP. Tracey added: “The by-election gave me a chance to meet people I wouldn’t normally. “Campaigning in Royston was really good because I got to meet lots of people. Lots of people said they remembered me, which was nice.” She is determined to do her best for Royston. “I want to make sure Royston has a strong team of councillors that can take the message to the town hall, that no-one forgets, and has a strong voice for the people there. “Cuts are really affecting people at local level and we need to be representing them,” she said.
