Frog’s hunt for the Da Vinci Toad

20

Boutique helps celebrity chef AN ONLINE fashion boutique run by two women who grew up in Darfield rode to the rescue when celebrity chef Marco Pierre White opened a restaurant. Fashionpony.co.uk supplied little black dresses to be worn by 12 competition winners at the opening night of the five-star eatery in Bristol. The winners acted as hostesses during the event which was attended by Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp and TV presenter Davina McCall. The boutique is run by Victoria Reddington and Dawn Hunter, both 26, who met at Foulstone School. Victoria said: “As soon as we got the call and found all 12 girls were urgently looking for black cocktail dresses to wear, we jumped at the chance to help. It was in aid of Marco’s big night.” Dawn said the dresses were sent by courier and arrived minutes before the opening.

Weather Wednesday: Cloudy, 4°C. Thursday: Showers, 4°C.

A look at the stars of 2010

Caring team: James Ward on his dad Carl’s knee after presenting £365 to the chemotherapy ward at the hospital after Carl was treated there. They are with helpers Jake Land and Alexandra Hulme, both ten, and staff Joanne White, left, Sam Rolbieski, Julie Pozorski, Emma Bergan and Julie Shaw.

DAD BATTLES BACK TO HEALTH BY RACHEL PARRY IT was a double celebrations for a Barnsley dad who has been given the all-clear from cancer. Carl Ward’s world was turned upside down in February when he was diagnosed with grade four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma – the most severe type of the disease. But despite all the odds Carl, 39, of Calabria Grove, Measborough Dike, has fought back to health and celebrated his 40th birthday and New Year with those most important to

him. “I had been feeling unwell for several months but kept thinking I would get better,” said Carl. “Eventually I gave in and went to the doctors who sent me to Barnsley Hospital for tests. “I’ve always been fit and healthy so to be told I had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was really difficult to take in, and the most severe type at such a young age.” After gaining enough strength, Carl began an intense course of chemotherapy and surprised staff when half way through his treatment he was showing signs of beating the cancer which originates from white

blood cells. Several months later Carl was given the all-clear. “I have been really poorly for the majority of the year but the hardest part had to be explaining to my tenyear-old son James just how ill I was. “He reacted in a really mature way and wanted to do whatever he could to help me and those at Barnsley Hospital’s Ward 24 where I was treated. Me and his mum Joanne are very proud of him.” With the help of classmates and teachers, James organised a table top sale at Holy Cross School in Carlton to raise funds for the ward. The sale raised £335 and extra donations

brought the total to £365 which has been spent on new medical equipment. And it wasn’t just James who wanted to support Carl through the toughest year of his life. “My friends, family and girlfriend Kirsty have all been brilliant, whether it’s been helping around the house or simply trying to keep me in high spirits. “I can’t even put into words how amazing the staff have been on Ward 24 and Macmillan nurse Sue Brown. They go above and beyond what is asked of them.”

She said: “People seem a lot more accepting when it comes from an organisation or business and we’ve actually got Aroma to join in by giving out free coffees and Clinton’s were giving out free balloons.”

DOUBLE GLAZING PROBLEMS?

AN Ofsted inspector who visited Kirk Balk secondary school to check its progress in music found achievement was satisfactory. Marianne Young found standards were below average but the number studying music had increased thanks to the introduction of a new course. Pupils arrived at the school with below average standards and progress was satisfactory, she said. Many were getting more involved in music lessons and lunchtime and after-school clubs. To improve, Ms Young found Kirk Balk needs to make lessons more challenging and improve the curriculum for years seven to nine.

PAUL Morton has never allowed his nickname at school to drive him hopping mad. Paul, 53, was called ‘Frog’ by mates at Hoyland Kirk Balk after a character called ‘Frog Morton’ in a comic. He has since exploited, in the nicest sense of the word, the little green creatures. Paul called his one-man business Hot Frog Graphics and once had a telephone answering machine with a frog’s croak. Clients, friends and others send him frogs. “My wife Janet is a bit fed up with it. We have a frog-free zone in the house,” he said. Paul designs packaging for household names such as Toblerone, Quality Street and Dime bars. He is usually hired by agencies working for the likes of Asda, Nestle and Cadbury’s. He has provided illustrations for boxes containing children’s games on sale here and in the United States.

Queens Road – Barnsley

Electric studio: Paul Morton creates art at the push of a button. He used to do greetings cards and posters for Hallmark and Athena. Paul does most of his work on a computer using a device called a graphics tablet. He uses a digital ‘pen’ to produce drawings on screeen. “Computers are like having an art studio at your fingertips. I can do things that it used to take four or five people in an old art studio to do. “I can sometimes be asked to turn something around in 24 hours. You can do the work and send it anywhere with virtually the push of a button. It is frightening.” He grew up in Hoyland Common and after school he went to the old Barnsley College of Art. Paul later taught part-time at the college for four or five years.

He gained a degree in graphic design at Liverpool Polytechnic. He had short spells at the Barnsley Chronicle and the Wakefield Express and went freelance at the turn of the 1980s. To mark the 30th anniversary of Hot Frog Graphics, he decided to do something different. Well, sort of. Paul devised an online treasure hunt for his friends called ‘The Hunt for the Da Vinci Toad’. The ‘treasure’ was hidden in a hollowed-out frog in the garden of his home off Broadway, Barnsley. At a subsequent party, vodka shots were served in containers resembling frog spawn. He is working on a children’s book called ‘Bug Belly’s Big Breakfast’. It is, inevitably, about a greedy frog.

It is thought the fire in a top floor flat on Victoria Road at about 5.30am was started by a candle. The occupant was named as Paul Musgrave, 40, by neighbours who said he had told them he lit the candle because he had no electric but fell asleep. Mark Jones, 48, was woken by fire-fighters wearing breathing apparatus. He said: “They came in and shouted ‘quick, get out of bed, there’s a fire’ so I put my dressing gown on, some flip-flops and had my quilt round me. I didn’t really know what was happening, I thought I was dreaming.” Another neighbour, who didn’t want to be named, said he arrived home from his nightshift to find three fire engines, two ambulances and police cars outside. The neighbour said the residents were standing outside for about two hours as fire crews from Barnsley and Cudworth tackled the blaze. A spokesman for the fire service said fire-fighters had to break the door to the flat down. He added: “There were two people in one of the rooms who didn’t even realise there was a fire but there were no injuries.” An investigation is ongoing.

A SELLER of radio controlled model helicopters and parts has expanded into the United States. Dodworth-based Fast Lad Performance has set up a subsidiary business called Experience RC at Livonia, near Detroit, Michigan. The company at Wortley Court is one of the biggest companies of its kind in Europe and it was felt opening a warehouse in the States was the best way of reaching the country’s potentially lucrative market. About half the firm’s sales, which have risen by between 20 and 25 per cent over the last year, are international. The bulk of purchases are done over the internet. Director Jamie Renwick said the firm had set on four staff over the last 18

months bringing the total to eight. The cost of the company’s 12,000 products can range from a couple of pence for a small clip up to £1,500 for a model helicopter kit. Chris and Jamie met at model helicopter fly-ins and kept in touch. They went into business because of a lack of helicopter parts in the UK. Jamie has been flying helicopters since he was 11 and picked up a modelling magazine in a newsagent’s. He grew up in Hoyland and attended Kirk Balk School. He has been a youth trainee at the council and purchasing manager at Sash Windows, Grimethorpe. Chris spent five years racing 750cc motorcycles and the company’s name is derived from a ‘fast lad’ nickname given to him by other competitors.

Choirs’ concert raises cash

BURDEN RELEASE EP RISING stars, local band ‘Burden’ have just completed their first EP. Members Daniel Hinton, 17, John Shaw, 17, Alex Short, 16, Ciaran Wilson, 17, Nath Low, 16 and Katie McGowan, 16, worked with another Barnsley band, Hitomi, to ensure the five-track EP is the best it can be. Their manager Kath Hinton, of West Street, Hoyland, said: “They absolutely love the EP. It sounds really good. The third track is what they did for their GCSE composition. I’ve been ill over Christmas and when I Iistened to it I burst into tears. They’ve just worked so hard.” “Hitomi are going to make it but they still have so much time for Burden. They have more experience and they’ve given some great advice. I’m really happy with the EP especially because it’s all their own material.”

A CONCERT attracting a capacity audience raised £1,500 for charity.

Mixed fortunes: Barnsley boy Azeem Rafiq began the year in fine style as he skippered England at the under 19s World Cup. He later lost the captaincy and was suspended by the ECB for a month after he criticised under 19 s’ coach John Abrahams on Twitter. Keira Reay, above right, became the youngest person to officially record a perfect game of 300 points.

SPORTS REVIEW: 2010 THE year began with a deluge of snow throughout January which postponed the majority of outside sport. Cricket star Azeem Rafiq escaped the arctic conditions as he captained England to eighth place in the Under 19 World Cup in New Zealand. Barnsley bowler Keira Reay became the youngest British woman to record a perfect game of 300 points during a spell of 13 consecutive strikes at Barnsley Bowl. In February Barnsley Lawn Tennis Club mixed doubles squad won their division in the Sheffield and District Winter League. In March TalkSport presenter Darren Gough chose Barnsley Athletics Club to receive a prize of £5,000 to spend on new equipment after sprinter Amanda Shaw won a competition. Barnsley College rugby union team won the North East College Cup in April. In May Julie Briscoe, of Hoyland, produced a superb performance to finish second woman in the Edinburgh marathon – her first race at the distance. Pole vaulter Luke Cutts and 800m runner Sam Ellis won gold medals at the CAU Inter-Counties Championships in June. They repeated the feat later in the month at the North of England Championships. In July Katherine Brunt realised a dream and Azeem Rafiq experienced a nightmare. Shaw Lane hosted international cricket for the first time as Brunt took three wickets to lead England women to a series-deciding victory over New Zealand. Meanwhile, Rafiq was suspended from all cricket for a month after he

launched a rant against his coach on Twitter. Diver Megan Sylvester had a globe-trotting August began with a bronze medal for Great Britain at the European Championships in Budapest. The Hoyland girl also competed at the first ever Youth Olympics and the World Junior Championships. In September Barnsley RUFC First XV got their Yorkshire League Two campaign off to a phenomenal start as they touched down ten times in a 60-0 victory over Yarnbury.

K i t c h e n s

October was a good month for angling as Maver Barnsley qualified for the final of the World Club Angling Championship and Barnsley Junior Angling Club were crowned national champions for the second year running. In November Jamie Zaszlos became the first person ever to fight for Dodworth Miners’ Welfare ABC and gave them the perfect start as he knocked out his opponent in the first round. In December Shaun Wilkes made an imperious

century as Yorkshire Snooker League leaders Barnsley Silk won a memorable match at Selby.
