MYSTERY SURROUNDS GRACE BY IAN HARLEY WHILE press speculation is intense that Barnsley actress Grace Kelly is to join her sister on Coronation Street, Barnsley audiences can see her first. Grace, younger sister of Katherine Kelly who plays the street’s free-spirit Becky Grainger, will appear as Eve in this summer’s production of ‘The English Mystery Plays’ at Monk Bretton Priory. Grace said: “The plays will probably be the biggest outdoor theatrical event in Britain this year and I’m proud that they are to be performed here in my home town. “I may, or may not, be joining Katherine as Becky’s long-lost sister on Coronation Street but, whatever happens, playing Eve comes first.”

Grace is pictured at the priory with another Lamproom Theatre favourite, Sam Whewall, who is to play Adam. He says he can’t wait to meet Phoenix Nights star, Toby Foster. The plays are to run from Monday June 29 to Saturday July 11. Tickets are available from the Lamproom Theatre box Rising star: Grace Kelly. office.

POT OF GOLD FOUND! JEWELLERY AND GEM STONE ROADSHOW Couple receive cash award for unwanted items A LOCAL couple this week had a very lucky day when visiting a Jewellery & Gem Stone Roadshow. Like most households they had a drawer full of bits and bobs including an old gents watch approximately 1930. The watch was working but had been left to them. A selection of old, broken and incomplete rings and a few odd items of unusual jewellery were also included. “The young couple were delighted with the good news,” said Mr Paul Franks, a professional jeweller. He went on to say, “The couple asked me not to reveal the exact amount they received but I can confirm we are talking thousands of pounds.”

HIDDEN TREASURE Like most readers you probably have dreamt about winning the pools or finding a pot of gold. Many households have hidden treasure sitting with the owners not knowing the true value. Well, this week is your chance to visit the Barnsley Library, Shambles Street, Barnsley. Mr. Franks added, “With many years of experience in valuing and purchasing watches, jewellery and gems, I could tell you many stories when people have visited a Roadshow with items that were seemingly of little value to them.” Whilst reading this article, many readers will be thinking of an old item or a piece of unused jewellery.

VALUATION Mr. Franks added, “The reasons behind

choosing Barnsley Library, Shambles Street, Barnsley is because it’s well situated and well known to local people. “The Roadshow will be the last of its kind to visit the library. Many items are hoped to be found.” Your help is needed to make this unusual event a success. With a free valuation service and no obligation to sell, what is there to lose? Things you should look for and take next week include broken rings, old chains, pocket watches, old silver, diamond and

gem set jewellery (even with stones missing), old pictures, objects d’art, coins, medals and virtually anything old or interesting. Their buyers urgently require stock for collectors and overseas customers, and are offering an instant cash settlement on any items they buy. No matter how large or small your find, you will be pleasantly surprised by their cash offer, but remember the Roadshow is 3 days only next week, at the Barnsley Library, Shambles St., Barnsley, on Monday, 11th May, Tuesday, 12th May and Wednesday, 13th May.

3 DAYS ONLY Monday 11th May Tuesday 12th May Wednesday 13th May The Barnsley Library, Shambles Street, Barnsley S70 2JF. 11.00am-4.00pm. TOP PRICES PAID FOR ALL DIAMOND SET JEWELLERY VALUATIONS BY LEADING DIAMOND EXPERT

What have you hidden away? SPECIAL REPORT

Many people are not aware of the value of unusual or old items that they have around the house. Family heirlooms are often sold but only when the value is realised. Today many record prices are constantly being paid and with the latest crime figures it is an easy decision to sell or store valuables - after all an item in a drawer or box is usually left year after year waiting to be lost or stolen.

CASH PAID Most unusual items of old jewellery are now out of fashion and are of little use, but there are collectors des-

perate for all items. The gents wristwatch market has never been better and antiques and old furniture are being bought by overseas purchasers for record amounts. Have a good look through your chest of drawers or old jewellery box and don’t forget broken or damaged items are also wanted. The Jewellery & Gemstone Antiques Roadshow is at the Barnsley Library, Shambles Street, Barnsley on Monday, 11th May, Tuesday, 12th May and Wednesday, 13th May

only, offering a professional, free valuation service, and an instant cash opportunity to sell any unwanted items no matter how small or large. Their experts are seeking stock and ask you to help in their search. Be sure you visit The Roadshow, it is sure to be an event not to miss. You never know, it could be your lucky day!

DON’T FORGET So don’t forget; take a look through your chest of drawers, in the attic or in your jewellery box - in fact, anywhere! Visit the Barnsley Library, Shambles Street, Barnsley.

DANN’S THE IRONMAN OXSPRING’S Dann Brook made an impressive start to his career at the new international half ironman distance, with a great win in the Lisbon Long Distance International Triathlon against a quality international field. The 23-year-old was unsure how the step up from standard distance triathlon to half ironman distance would affect him, but this performance confirmed that the endurance obvious since his early days as a seven-year-old at the Borough of Barnsley Swimming Club should bring him great success over this distance, and possibly eventually at full ironman distance in time. After spending the winter training in South Africa building strength for this move up in distance, Brook was looking in impressive form going into this race, and had won his previous outing at standard distance in Cape Town before returning north. Showing no nerves Brook led the 1.9km swim throughout, splitting a small group of ten away from the main field to join him. Brook tucked in at this point until the small group reached the swim exit, and then sprinted up the ramp to take first

place at this point, going out on to the bike course with a 30 second lead. Brook then further increased his lead over the chasing group to over two minutes with a strong ride over the section of coastal motorway, but found himself overtaken by French cycling specialist Felix who took the lead on the last of the four cycle laps. He pulled out a further minute on Brook by T2 and this impressive show of cycling from Felix saw him come from five minutes behind at the end of the swim to complete the bike course six minutes faster than Brook, who himself was two minutes faster than the rest of the field in just two hours 14 minutes for the 56 mile route. However, Felix slowed on the half marathon run eventually finishing in 12th place, and Brook regained the lead after just 2k. Dann was the fourth fastest of the day, finishing with a comfortable 26 second winning margin at the end, and a great start to half ironman distance races. Brook next races at Strathclyde in the National Elite Championships once again over the standard distance.
