Well, we’ve just got used to the new plastic fiver, and now a plastic tenner is on its way! Details are sketchy, but it will feature Jane Austen, and is due out some time in the summer. There’ll be a few ‘rare’ versions knocking around on eBay!

Could you rise to the TV food challenge? FANCY yourself as the next Jamie Oliver or Mary Berry? Well, now’s your chance, because TV producers want locals to star in a new ITV cooking programme starring Gordon Ramsay and other celebrity chefs. Culinary Genius will run for four weeks on ITV, and each episode will see nine keen amateur cooks competing across a range of challenges in the hope of taking home a cash prize, and the title of Culinary Genius. Featuring a different

guest professional chef each week, with Gordon Ramsay appearing in the first week of shows, the series will air in 2017, and the host will be confirmed in due

course. Applicants must be aged 18 or over. You can apply for the show by emailing

Mixed reaction to possible re-opening of travellers’ site BARNSLEY Council is considering reopening a controversial site for gypsies and travellers on Grange Lane. The site at Stairfoot closed nearly two years ago just weeks after opening, amid concerns travellers were staying too long. It is expected to reopen because it forms part of the council’s approach to tackling the issue of unauthorised encampments across the borough. Residents who live nearby have received a letter informing them of the plans and asking for their opinions on the site. The letter states measures implemented on the site will include a charge of £20 per week per caravan, and that travellers will be allowed a maximum 14 days on the site. The 11-pitch site was shut down in April 2015. It was set up as an emergency stopping place for gypsies and travellers who were allowed to remain for up to 14 days, with no return allowed within three months. But one of the first encampments remained for

eight weeks and only left after the council began legal proceedings. As a result the council closed the site, removed the temporary toilets and water facilities, and created a soil barrier to prevent further access. A decision on the site is expected in early March. Here’s what you had to say... Michael Oldfield: We have a gypsy camp on the East side of Barnsley at Smmithies. Maybe to balance the borough up we should put one on the west side of Barnsley for example Silkstone/Cawthorne or Penistone. Chris Ogden: They have to live somewhere. People are quite happy to accept refugees. Travellers aren’t all bad. Some are some aren’t. I can think of plenty of non travellers who I’d class as a waste of space. Margaret Hamblett: Grange Lane isn’t a suitable place. People are being fined for dropping litter. People are given anti social behaviour orders. You can’t help the homeless by giving them somewhere where they can pitch tents, but it’s ok to give travellers land.

Lauren Bywater: The problem is that Grange Lane is not really suitable, it’s a very busy road. Last time it was open, you had to drive very cautiously because there was little kids from the travellers site playing either on the road or very near it. I’m aware that we should drive safely anyway but I think Grange Lane is not a good location. Becky Jackson: Good, they need somewhere to stay. Maybe they won’t have to keep breaking into public places such as parks and car parks. Maybe not on Grange Lane but somewhere where people can’t moan about it. But they need rules and need to pay ground rent and council tax for the rubbish taking away just like the rest of us. Roland Rodgerson: Have we forgotten about the irreparable damage the travellers caused to Monk Bretton Priory by stealing the iron bars from the Priory’s windows? Are we to permit these disgraceful acts and maybe worse all over? How many hundreds of thousands of tax payer’s pounds did it cost to have them removed and the site cleaned up last time??

Angus gets on his bike! BARNSLEY FC defender Angus MacDonald will take on an epic 300-mile bike ride for charity this summer when he cycles from Paris to London. The centre-back will complete the challenge in aid of Epilepsy Research UK – a charity close to his heart as his sister suffers from the condition. MacDonald said: “As some of you may know I have previously completed a charity event for Epilepsy to raise awareness and funds for the charity ‘Epilepsy Research UK’. “My sister suffers with

epilepsy and after seeing my first seizure, I wanted to make a stand. “This wasn’t just for my sister but for others out there who have suffered also. “So, in the summer I will be cycling from Paris to London in a personal event to raise as much for this charity as I possibly can to spread awareness and do my bit to help fight for all sufferers. “This is for you, sis.” Visit fundraising/AngusMacDonald7 to donate.

WABer W A ABer of the th he Week Week

Support for garden grows

Chris lands our weekly prize EVERY week we celebrate a WABer who deserves a special treat. Our WABer of the Week pays tribute to someone who goes above and beyond, who does something for charity or who’s generally just an all round star. Our winner will receive a meal for two at the Oakstar Cafe. Got someone you want to nominate? Send us a picture and tell us why your nominee deserves to win to, message us on Facebook or post to 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. This week’s WABer of the Week is Chris Calderbank.

Chris was nominated by his wife Keely, who said: “I believe my husband Chris Calderbank deserves a treat. We have had a tough few years where he lost his parents within two years of each other. Our son was also diagnosed with autism. “After all that seven months ago I was diagnosed with a neurological disorder meaning I had to stop driving and struggle with walking and talking among other things. “Chris has had to lower his working hours to help more at home. He has to push his 30 year old wife around in a wheelchair - and he never moans or complains about anything.

Rock: Chris Calderbank. “He never shows that anything is getting to him he truly has been my rock!” Top lad Chris! Enjoy your meal.

A LOCAL mum has started a Crowdfunding campaign to keep Wentworth Castle Gardens open to the public. Emma Robinson started the page after learning of the “dreadful loss” of the iconic tourist attraction. The Heritage Trust behind the gardens announced last week that it has not been able to make enough money to cover the running costs and management of the site - despite a £3.74 million restoration of the garden’s Victorian conservatory back in 2013. Emma said: “This is a dreadful loss of a beautiful place. “I, and my children and many people in Barnsley and surrounding areas take great pleasure from visiting these stunning gardens. “Barnsley will really lose somewhere special if they close and I’m not willing to let that happen without a fight. “I’m sure with some changes and a

Who are your fave Couple up and win some celeb couples? lovely Valentine’s prizes AS it’s Valentine’s Day and we like to make a fuss here in the WAB office, we thought we’d go out into Tarn and ask the locals who their favourite celebrity couples were! We had some very interesting answers! Here they are! Brian Vardy: “I’d have to say Jason Statham and that blonde bird he goes out with, she's an absolute blinder!” Paige Rusby: “Ross and Rachel are the first ones that spring to mind, they’re a very iconic couple aren’t they?” Sue Moss: “Who do I like? I like Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on breakfast television they work great together!”

Andy Neil: “Jamie Redknapp and his Mrs, they keep themselves to themselves, they’re never in the papers, there’s never any scandal. I ike that, they don’t do anything for headlines.” Matthew Ings: “It has to be Beyonce and JayZ, they are a power couple aren’t they? They always come out of all the drama on top.” Olivia Golby: “The couple from Pretty Woman, just because it’s my favourite film, I never get bored of it.” Christine Charlesworth: “Prince William and Kate! They look fantastic together, now our country should be very proud of them.”

Not everyone’s in love... IF you’re bitter because you don’t have a significant other to buy you things on Valentine’s Day, hopefully this collection of painful Valentine’s Day fails will make you feel better... The worse Valentine’s Day for me was the one where I learned that when a woman says she doesn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day she’s lying. I received a big box a chocolate strawberries, but it came with no note. So I spent ALL day trying to think who would send me strawberries. My ex from a few months ago? The guy I went on a few dates but fizzled out? A secret admirer? Turns out my aunty had sent a box to all of her nieces. Trolled again by aunty Betsy. I once got a mix cd, I later found it

on her playlist listed with the title ‘James’ Birthday Mix’ with James being her most recent ex... In high school I was crazy about this one girl. But she had a boyfriend, so I stayed in the “trusted friend” category. She breaks up with her boyfriend! We plan to meet up for dinner a day before Valentine’s day. I’m stoked, I buy her a Valentine’s Day teddy bear, and I’m seriously gonna ask her out, tell her my feelings, etc. Well I pull up to her house, and she comes out, and the first thing she says to me is “Me and my boyfriend got back together, aren’t you happy?” The girl I’m in love with gave me an envelope on Valentine’s Day, I was super excited... until I opened it and saw that was an invitation to her wedding.

Cinema prize could be just the ticket for a loved up couple... TAKE your lad or lass on a neet art t’cinema! We’ve teamed up with Sheffield’s Cineworld for a fantastic prize, two pairs of two tickets to see any film, including 3D, 4DX and iMax screenings*, at any time. For the perfect date night,

Thatt was Tha was a the WAB WAB A week week that th hat was... was a ...

Romantic Danny wows his love with cinema, pizza ... and a new sofa! LOVE is in the air ... Happy Valentine’s Day WABers! I know it’s not for everybody, but I think there’s summat special about it. I’m treating my gorgeous girlfriend to a meal out, the cinema, a pizza for tea and – wait for it ... A SOFA. We’ve managed to get a cracking deal on a corner suite and a big cuddle chair – so we’re going for it! Can you beat that for a present? I’m sure there’ll be a few engagements knocking about. Congratulations to all of you. Speaking of things we love – a local mum has set up a Crowdfunding campaign to save Wentworth Castle Gardens from closure to the public. I think it’s great that we stand up to be counted when something like

that happens. We’re a strong community in Tarn – other places should be jealous! We’ve had a couple of interesting debates this week, too. The police are bringing Operation Duxford back to Barnsley this week – it’s an operation to protect vulnerable people, engage with communities and tackle crime. I think it’s good that the police are willing to listen to us about what crime needs cracking down on the most. You’ve had your say on Page 11. I had a meeting with someone from the council last week. We were talking about the Better Barnsley project – and I suggested that it would be a good idea for the council to hold a forum with members of the public, so we can hear more about the project and have our say on

the scheme. I think Better Barnsley is something we should all be excited about – the plans look fantastic. But it would be nice to sit down with the council and hear it from the horse’s mouth. Did you catch me on Dearne FM’s Red All Over show on Friday? I was asked to go on to talk about Barnsley – and I’m pleased to say my prediction of a point away at Reading came true! It was a great result for the Reds – who take on Aston Villa at Villa Park tonight. Rumour has it they have a couple of old Barnsley boys playing for them now – will be nice to see you again, messrs Bree and Hourihane ... Al si thi next week! Danny

Barnsley pick up valuable point at Reading BARNSLEY had a great result on Saturday, as they picked up an excellent point away at promotion chasing Reading. It was a good game – with both sides missing some fantastic chances – and Barnsley probably had the better of it. Marc Roberts headed just wide for the Reds in the first half, while Adam Hammill blazed over from a good position. Reading had the lion’s share of possession – but it was Barnsley who came close again, as Tom Bradshaw volleyed inches over shortly after the re-start. The home side responded as Yann Kermogant forced a good, low save from Reds’ stopper Adam Davies, while Garath McCleary also went close for the Royals. But it was Barnsley who again came closest to a winner, as Marley Watkins struck the base of the post with a fine effort. The game ended goalless but Barnsley will have left the happier of the two teams. Barnsley have now dropped

Marley Watkins to 10th in the league – but it was a solid result at the start of a run which sees them away at Villa, before two home games against promotion hopefuls Brighton and Huddersfield. They take on Villa tonight at Villa Park – a game which sees the Reds reunited with Conor Hourihane and James Bree. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for updates. Full Reading and Villa match reports in this week’s Barnsley Chronicle.

Fast Eddie has a huge medal haul BARNSLEY is certainly not short of sporting talent, and Olympic star Ed Clancy is no exception. The track and bicycle racer who grew up in Ingbirchworth and went to Springvale Primary School, is now hailed as one of Yorkshire’s greatest Olympians after winning three gold medals over Olympic career, and also a bronze medal under his belt, making it the best medal tally of any Yorkshire person. His third gold medal came just months after the Olympian almost became paralysed after suffering drop foot, a form of muscular weakness or paralysis, which came after a nerve in his foot was squashed and almost permanently damaged he began losing motor skills on his left side and could have been left paralysed if he hadn’t have an operation. Despite this he pushed on, leading out the GB team cycling team at last year’s Rio Olympics to go on and win the gold, also setting world records in the semi-final and final.

Sport stars and beauty spots excel Elsecar’s Park is an at letter E... Fond memories of award winning site SOME people will have very fond memories of Elsecar park! The park spreads over 45 acres and it’s not just us Barnsley folk that love it! Last year it picked up the title of the ‘Nation’s Favourite Park’ thanks to Keep Britain Tidy’s

awards, and the park’s won the Green Flag award nine times! Whether you’re looking to go for a run or have a family day out, Elsecar Park is just the ticket, it’s on your door step! Why not go down!?

OUR Best of Barnsley A to Z is back – and this week, we’re focusing on the letter E! But who, and what, have we included in this week’s page? Well, we’ve had a look at a Barnsley FC legend, who helped the club win promotion to the Premiership back in the 1990s, an award winning local attraction, an Olympic cycling hero and a Barnsley museum. Read on to find out more...

Elmhirst School... IS there anyone from Worsbrough and Ardsley who can remember the old Elmhirst School? The comprehensive was located on Ardsley Road and was originally known as Worsbrough High School until

the late 1990s. The school had over 550 pupils until 2004 when it closed to make way for Barnsley Academy. In September 2006 the academy opened for pupils aged 3-18.

Sheffield-born Red who helped Experienced our Tarn to the promised land... rich history yet?


WE couldn’t get to the letter E without mentioning Barnsley legend Nicky Eaden. Eaden played nearly 300 times for Barnsley between 1992-2000, and was part of the famous side that gained promotion to the Premier League in 1997. Sheffield-born Eaden played alongside quality players such as Neil Redfearn and Clint Marcelle, and was a key figure in Barnsley’s dressing room. He was a battling defender, and notched up 10 goals for the Reds during his time at Oakwell. Because of his role with the Reds during one of their most successful periods, Eaden was an easy choice for our A to Z.

WHETHER you’re new to Barnsley or you want to brush up on some Barnsley history, we have an entire museum dedicated to providing us locals with all Tarns’ highlights! E is for Experience Barnsley! You can uncover all Barnsley's best stories through old artefacts, documents, films and recordings that have been donated by people living in our town. There’s something for everyone! With a walk in cinema and regular activities for all ages there’s plenty to get involved with. But it’s not just histori-

cal artefacts in the museum, there’s also special activities take place during the school holidays. In the February half term Experience Barnsley are inviting Tarn’s budding young cricketers to come forward and learn new skills, and there’s creative activities for little ones too! There’s currently a Best of Barnsley Banners art work collection on display and a Barnsley football team collection. So if ever you’re stuck for something to do, Experience Barnsley has got you covered!

WAB Charity corner LOCAL lass Louise Unwin is raising money for SMILE, a support group for families who have children with additional needs. The group is vountary run by people who are in the same situation, and they aim to offer support through shared experience, knowledge and understanding. To find out more about the project, or to donate, visit: http://www.crowdfunder.c SARA’S Flowers & Teas are always doing their bit to raise money for charity, whether it’s locally or nationally. They’ve just held a coffee morning to raise money for local charity Pathway’s Domestic Violence and Family Support. Look at that cake! Helping people by eating, now that is my kind of charity work!

My hate for jumped up Bransons THIS is a very specific one, but I can’t be alone when I say that people who wear T-shirts / hoodies / socks with their job title on do my box in! And people that brag about the fact they have a managerial role at their work place, that’s another one that gets right up my nose. Every chance they get to slip into conversation the fact they’re a manager they do, I know you’re a manger, you’ve told me 12 times in the past half an hour, well done, your Blue Peter badge is on its way in the post! Don’t get me wrong I’m all for showing pride in what you do, I love my job and I’m very proud of my work, but you won’t catch me ramming it down anyone's throat, it’s way too much! There’s a time and a place to show your workplace authority.

Don’t act like you’re Richard Branson if you’re a manager down at your local super market. And don’t even get me started on the job title clothing, who invented it, and why did they invent it? Did they literally want people to know what they did for a living that much, they got it printed on a T-shirt? I don’t understand. If you’re not familiar with what I mean I’ll give you a brief summary: it’s the type of T-shirts that say, for example: ‘General Manager, because miracle worker isn’t an official job title.’ I know it’s only a T-shirt but my opinion on someone would completely change if I saw them in an item of clothing with their job title plastered across. Imagine meeting someone you fancied for a pint and they had a T-shirt like that on!

If you’re in the army, or you work in public services you have a free pass to be immensely proud of what you do, shout it from the rooftops! But if you’re a site manager, don’t get me wrong, that’s great too, but there’s no need to drop it into conversation at every opportunity. It’s embarrassing, could you imagine if I walked round town in a T-shirt that said ‘WAB Reporter, because miracle worker isn’t a job title’? I’d get some right stick, and righty so in my opinion. The point I’m making is, you have a job, which is fantastic but there’s more to life than work, and there’s definitely more to life than telling people about your work. Olivia

The last dance was worth the wait...

Services will help your motor run like a dream... WHETHER you’re driving around in a Renault or a Range Rover the team from D. Harding will do their bit to ensure your car is running like a dream, with their repairs and £30 MOTs. The team took over the garage six months ago and are already off to a flying start, they’ve even hired an

ROOM 101

apprentice to spread the workload. Owner, Matt said: “Both myself and Chris have been in the trade since we were 16, and since we’ve took over at the garage it’s going really well, we’re booked up weeks in advance which is great.” The facility is located on Heelis St, Barnsley S70 1LW

THERE was a lot of sweat and loads of tears – and we’re all sad that it’s over. The finale of ‘Our Dancing Town’ aired on BBC Two last week - and what an episode it was. It brought all of the towns that took part – including the mighty Tarn – together for one last big dance. Some old favourites made an

appearance, including the loveable Joan and Danny’s grandad Eric. Here’s what you had to say on the finale... Hailey Swann: I live in Peterborough and whenever someone has recognised my accent it’s been followed by: “wasn’t it amazing to see your town on TV – they did Barnsley so proud.” It was amazing and I’m especially proud of my rugby

girls doing us proud! Norma Wilson: Brilliant Barnsley I’ve lived in Canada for 42 years and snowbirds in Florida for 12 years but loved watching the dancing. Good old Barnsley. Yvette Llewellyn: Couldn’t watch it without a tear in my eye. It was brilliant. Let’s keep on doing positive things for the town.

Is a ‘better Barnsley’ edging closer? THE council has provided an update on the Better Barnsley project – including news on the new cinema, a planned bowling alley, the new shopping boulevard and a planned gym in the town centre. At a forum earlier this month We Are Barnsley learned that work on the new town centre library is due to start this month – with a planned opening in early 2018. The new shopping area in the town centre - to be named The Glassworks - will feature 26 shopping units, including 11 restaurants and

cafes, and six large units. It will run through the end of and at the back of the Metropolitan Centre. The shops on the council’s wish list are H and M, River Island, Jack and Jones, Schuh, Dr Martens, Lush, HMV, DW Sports and Footasylum. The list also features major food outlets and restaurants such as Five Guys, TGI Fridays, Krispy Kreme, Bella Italia, Las Iguanas, Nando’s and Handmade Burger Company. The new cinema will be a 14 screen multiplex, and there are plans to include a

new bowling alley in the facility. There will also be restaurant units underneath the cinema. The cinema’s planned location is where the temporary May Day Green market is now – and work will commence on the facility in winter 2018. The council says that talks with the new operator are progressing well, and that there will be an announcement in the coming weeks. As well as that, there are plans for a new gym to be built on Cheapside. The Better Barnsley scheme is scheduled to be completed in May 2020.

Diets to give the wide berth?

Milly makes her mark on most popular book list WE ALL love local author Milly Johnson – and it turns out the rest of the country does too! That’s because the Barnsley author’s book – Afternoon Tea at the Sunflower Cafe – is among the most popular borrowed from libraries.

It is in 12th place on the UK list by Public Lending Right, while five of her books feature in the top 36 of borrowed books for Yorkshire and the Humber, and three are on the top ten for Barnsley. Milly said: “My book came 12th in the whole country, I thought ‘is

this a joke?’ “It’s nearly 200,000 lends of my books. If you multiply that by however many authors there are, that’s an awful lot of people going into libraries, which is thrilling.” Go on Milly lass!

There’s a special day for everything now isn’t there? There’s even a National Cabbage Day, and it’s this week! February 17! I once went on the cabbage soup diet... What funny diets have you been on? We’ve listed some of the craziest ones below ... 1. The cotton wool/tissue diet This is absolutely ludicrous, the idea is to replace your meals with cotton wool or tissue soaked in orange juice! Could you imagine that? What do you want for your tea tonight love? I’ll have a pack of cotton wool and a some orange juice in a gravy boat! Bonkers! Cotton wool isn’t food, obviously, so it’s indigestable, so please don’t try this at home ... 2. The prayer diet Now I like this one, it’s the perfect diet if you’re optimistic! All you have to do is pray

every day that you’ll use weight... Theoretically it could work, you could subconsciously convince yourself to make healthier choices if you do it enough! I might give it a go, stop me from reaching for the quarter pounders. 3. The baby food diet This is definitely too much, I’d rather not eat. What you have to do is wolf down 16 jars of baby food per day instead of regular meals and snacks. ‘You look like you’ve lost weight, have you been dieting?’ ‘Yes I’ve been on the baby food, 16 jars a day.’

4. The tapeworm diet This one is pretty grim. The idea is to put a tapeworm inside yourself so that it can eat the food instead of you. I would rather not be on a diet than share my body with a parasite. It’s a no from me. 5. Sausage and beer diet This is my kind of diet, all you is eat beer and sausage. Six beers a day and two sausages a day, that doesn’t sound like a diet to me! Quick question, can I have bread and ketchup with my sausage? Because I love hot dogs! Olivia

Is thin blue line getting thinner? Delays not exactly what the doctor ordered... TWO new doctors have been appointed to the practice in Dodworth to meet patient demand. Do you find it easy to book a doctor’s appointment? Ashleyjay Laughton: Yeah if you know you’re going to be poorly four weeks in advance or have 35 minutes spare in a morning to continuously ring for a same day appointment. Lyndsay Robertshaw: Cannot fault ours at Ashville Medical Practice at Kendray. My little girl was ill last week, I called at 2.30, got a triage call back from a doctor at three and my little girl had an appointment and was on antibiotics by 4.30! 99.9 per cent of the time we get an appointment too. Martyna Kurzela: It’s an absolute joke! Even if you get to the doctors then you are going back home with nothing more than a sick note, but you still don’t know what’s wrong with you... Paul Dunhill: The worst phone system I’ve ever dealt with, but even in the unlikely event you do get through you never get an appointment until you are over your aliment. Alison Robinson: Great if you know in advance when you’re going to be ill. It’s not just Dodworth though it affects most doctors’ practices in Barnsley. Kala Wood: No, it’s a joke it took me 150 times to get in touch with the Dodworth practice one day last week.

Sam Snape: Dodworth is horrendous at the moment, and for the privilege of NOT getting through until you’ve called 100+ times, you get spoken to like dirt by the reception staff that apparently think they’re the judges and gatekeepers of healthcare. Amy Mincher: Absolutely beyond a joke. Took my two- yearpold son in October, they said he had a virus and to put him in a bathroom once the bath has run and let him inhale steam. We’ve done everything possible, took him again last week (once finally getting through) appointment at 7.20am still didn’t get seen while 8am and all she said was to give him some ibuprofen. Unbelievable. Waste of time/effort/patience. Hannah Kirk: My doctor is always running at least half an hour behind. So if I have a doctors’ appointment I can’t make any other plans for that day. Jay Boss: It’s stupid. You get told you need to ring at 8.30 in the morning and then you get the engaged tone due to everyone being told same, and WAM there’s no appointments available. Absolutely STUPID. Rachael Kaye: I live in Dodworth and the best thing I did was register at Huddersfield Road surgery. Tracey Baker: Rang this morning for an appointment only to be told that they’ve all gone.Was given an alternative number to ring but guess what? I can’t get through. It’s ridiculous.

POLICE want to hear from local people about what type of crime officers need to crack down on most in Barnsley. As part of Operation Duxford – an operation to protect vulnerable people, engage with communities and tackle crime – residents will see increased police presence in Barnsley. Officers and PCSOs will be in the town centre, Kendray and Goldthorpe, talking to people and listening to any concerns they have. But what do you think?

Garry Peary: Motor bikes and quads using bridleways on Pennine trails go hell for leather with no regards for young kids, people out walking or people on horse back. That’s what we want stamping out. Chris Edge: So now we have to pick and choose which crime we want tackling? Crime is crime, whether it be littering or burglary. All crime should be dealt with accordingly. Dave Kershaw: What about bobbies on beat? Too many house being robbed; sheds and

vans, too.. And when you report it they can not be bothered coming out. Here’s a crime number. Come on pull your finger out and do the job your paid for not the one you choose. Gary Mark Thornton: How about just a police presence? I know your numbers have been cut drastically but when we used to have local beat bobbies there was far less crime. Only time I see them in Grimethorpe is when they’ve got the sirens on.

Manufactured and installed to the highest standards. DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!

Fish and chips can’t be battered WE’RE a nation of chip lovers, which is why this week, from February 16, is National Chip Week! We’re not short of places to get a nice mound of chips in Tarn, from fish and chip shops to restaurants and pubs, whatever you like with your chips you’re sure to find it

in Barnsley. We went into Tarn to find exactly what meals you all like to enjoy with your chips... Andy Neil: I love chips! It’s got to be fish and chips – simple! And mushy peas of course. James Marshall: For me it’s chips, beans and fried eggs. I love to dip my chips in the

egg yolk! Sandra Perry: Chips go great with a big juicy steak, a fillet steak! All smothered in Diane sauce. Jess Goodwin: I’d choose sweet potato fries over chips any day! Darren Cooper: Large fish, chips and curry sauce from the local chippy – nowt nicer.

Youngsters feature in gripping BBC drama WE’VE got some young superstars on our hands! These two budding actors have had their big break, after starring in the new BBC One drama The Moorside. The programme stars Sheridan Smith and tells the story of the disappearance of Shannon Matthews from Dewsbury, and the role her mother Karen played in it. Jaimee Bailey, seven, plays the daughter of Karen’s neighbour Natalie, who became suspicious of Karen’s behaviour during the search for her daughter. Jaimee’s mum Joanne, of Darton, said: “Jaimee absolutely loved it, it’s the first time she’s ever had a featured role. She loves going to filming and playing make-believe. “There is something about television which she loves.” Ten-year-old Alfie CrewdsonPrice, of Dell Avenue, Grimethorpe, also appears in several scenes. He was photographed in the background of a promotional shot which shows Sheridan’s

Reds dispute the John Stones transfer fee quoted by Moyes IT’S that time of week again, we’re delving into the WAB archives to look at news from years gone by. This week, we’re off to February last year. But what hit the headlines? Tuesday February 16 2016 Barnsley hit back at Moyes over Stones fee BARNSLEY FC has hit back at claims by former Everton manager David Moyes that the Merseyside club paid just £1.25m for defender John Stones. Moyes was a guest on Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday show at the weekend when he was asked about the signing of Stones from Oakwell in January 2013. The widely reported fee for Stones was £3m, but Moyes claimed it was significantly less. But in a statement issued this morning, the club said: “David Moyes played no part in any negotiation with Barnsley FC concerning the transfer of John Stones, which may explain why he is mistaken as to the fee paid.

Louise Distras.

Dickie Bird.

Love, music and the great escape! HAPPY Valentines Day WABers! How will you be spending the day? A slap up meal with your significant other? Drowning your lonely sorrows on your own? Well whatever you do, have a fantastic time! I’ll be doing what I do best, having a pint! (Shock!) Be sure to read on if you want the lowdown on exactly what’s going down in our town this week. If you’re looking for something a little bit different I went to the Cryptology Escape Room on Eldon Street the other day, that was fantastic! It’s literally like you’re locked in a submarine and you need to get out, make sure you take someone clever with you though, because it’s not as easy as it looks. This would even be a great alternative Valentine’s Day date! If the thought of being locked in a room makes you feel a bit claustrophobic, and you want something more carefree, local school children have come together to perform an enchanting Chinese fable ‘The Magic Paintbrush’.

Barnsley composer Helen Madden has teamed up with pupils from Greenacre and Barugh Primary School so if that sounds like something you and your little ones would like, why not head down tomorrow (Wednesday February 15) at Barnsley Civic. If you’re into music we have so much going on in and outside of Barnsley! The music scene in South Yorkshire just keeps on growing! You’ve got the opportunity to listen to a woman that’s been described as ‘the one woman sound of revolution’ this week, Louise Distras is coming to The Underground in Barnsley to perform her original indie hits! That’s on Saturday February 18. If you don’t mind venturing out of Barnsley the line up for Tramlines Festival (in Sheffield) has been announced, and it is absolutely HUGE! Whether you want indie rock from The Libertines (one of my favourite bands) or you’re after a bit of reggae from Toots and the Maytals, Tramlines has you covered, and tickets are only 40 quid, you can’t go wrong!

But that’s not till July, so don’t get too excited just yet. If you’re not a massive music fan, but you love a bit of Barnsley entertainment, you’d be mad to miss Dickie Bird’s exhibition at Experience Barnsley! Dickie Bird: My Life In Cricket will give locals the chance to explore Dickie’s life, discovering the many funny stories and successes of his life! That exhibition opens on February 18. What do you reckon to that? Is that enough for you? If anything it’s too much to choose from! As always, if ever you have an event that you’d like to promote head over to our website, or give me a call 01226 734 407. Alternatively, if you’ve been to a gig or an event and would like to see your name in print, write us a short review and email it to and we’ll see what we can do! See ya later, Olivia

The Founder leaves you feeling underserved... THE FOUNDER (12A) Directed by: John Lee Hancock Starring: Michael Keaton, Laura Dern, Nick Offerman AFTER 2004’s Super Size Me, a lot of people wrote off McDonalds for life. After The Founder, they might be repulsed by one of its creators too. The Founder follows businessman Ray Kroc, the man who stole a fast food empire from beneath the feet of the McDonald brothers, Dick and Mac.

Pioneers of today’s culture of service in seconds, they unwittingly invite the fox into the hen house when they invite Ray in for a look. Dick – played by Nick Offerman as the steelier, more savvy of the two – soon realises the folly of their ways, and you see John Carroll Lynch’s heart breaking as their family burger business is packaged up and commercialised nationwide. Witnessing the birth of a cultural icon like the Golden Arches is naturally interesting.

Buoying it up is a stellar performance from Michael Keaton as Ray, driven to success at any cost and living on a one-word mantra - persistence. And as the film progresses, so does his ego, to the detriment of all those around him. Laura Dern, usually incredible, makes the best of what she is given as his neglected wife Ethel. But she is incredibly underserved by a plot which itself seems unclear about whose side you are meant to be on.

There’s a lot of sympathy for the McDonald brothers, watching their carefully cultivated burger place and ideas be stolen by this interloper. But on Kroc’s side, there’s a certain malevolent glee to be had when his sales veneer slips and you see the ugly face of his ambition underneath. The story, whilst interesting, is not a particularly nice one. And Keaton is brilliant. It’s a shame the movie that surrounds him is a little undercooked. 6/10

New VW Golf swings its way into UK THERE’S a new Golf in town for all you car nuts! The updated Volkswagen Golf is open for orders in the UK with the option of all-new engines, more technology, improved connectivity and revised styling. The brand’s family favourite arrives in UK showrooms towards the end of March, but order books are already open for the eagerly awaited updated version of the most popular European car to date. Now standard across the range are LED rear lights, while the majority of models across the Golf hatchback and Estate line-up are also now offered with a new generation of larger and more sophisticated touchscreen infotainment systems. Volkwagen says the new Golf sparkles with technical innovations. For the first time in the compact class and depending on model, the new Discover Navigation Pro radio-navigation and online system can be operated via gesture control. Sporting a 9.2-inch screen, the system complements the Active Info Display that is also new in the Golf and appears as standard on all Performance Golfs. Meanwhile, the range of online services and apps has also been enlarged. The UK line-up retains a familiar feel, beginning in the hatchback range with S and rising through SE, SE Nav, GT, R-Line, GTE, GTE Advance, e-Golf, GTD and GTD BlueLine to GTI, GTI

Performance and, ultimately, R. The estate family offers generous choice, too, with S, SE, SE Nav, GT and GTD and GTD BlueLine models being joined by Alltrack and R. The car also creates a new benchmark for assistance systems in the compact class, employing technologies that will significantly improve safety. Depending on model, these include: City Emergency Braking with new pedestrian monitoring (Front Assist); a new Traffic Jam Assist that offers semi-automated driving at speeds of up to 37 mph (60 km/h); and Emergency Assist which is also new to this segment. Emergency Assist notices if the driver is incapacitated and initiates various measures to rouse them in escalating stages culminating, if the driver remains inactive, in carrying out an emergency stop. Sounds fancy!
