The online business directory built for you The largest, most up-to-date and comprehensive online directory for Barnsley


Introducing Barnsley 4 Me... ARNSLEY 4 Me is a new online directory offering information on more than 8,000 businesses throughout the borough, all at the click of a button. The concise directory, which is free to use and has a free business listing, aims to promote business in Barnsley by encouraging people to search for nearby companies in the first instance to support their local economy. For individuals, Barnsley 4 Me provides all the information needed on local businesses, including how many businesses within the borough provide the required services and a map showing their exact locations. Meanwhile the directory also has fantastic business to business appeal, encouraging local companies to support one another by trading within the borough. Designed with ease in mind, users can search for businesses in a number of simple ways; through popular classifications, type of business, company name or within a certain area/postcode. Each business listing includes the company name, address, contact number and map location, but a variety of further advertising options are available enabling businesses to enhance their profiles. Upgrading allows businesses to add

photographs, testimonials, a company logo, email/website links and even the most recent advertisement placed in the Barnsley Chronicle and/or Independent. The site is updated daily so changes can be made quickly and easily allowing businesses to get the most out of their profiles. Missing businesses can add themselves to the directory through the ‘missing business’ link on the Barnsley 4 Me home page, ensuring no one is left out.

Better to do Business in Barnsley... As we steadily emerge from a hard hitting recession it’s arguably more important than ever to support our local businesses and encourage the green shoots of recovery. Barnsley 4 Me offers a valuable service in helping individuals and businesses within Barnsley to achieve this. Business consultant, David Petherbridge, a member of the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, has shown his support for the new directory, stating anything that makes local businesses more accessible is a great benefit to the town. “I have worked within the hospitality industry for around 40 years, spending 23 years as general manager/managing director at Ardsley House Hotel,” says David. “During my time in business within Barnsley there have been a lot of changes, most notably the decline of manufacturing within the town although a few strong companies remain in this area. “In its place have come a lot of small businesses, many of which are very successful, also the town has a great number of entrepreneurs who have a lot to offer. “Recovery from the recession is slow but the people of Barnsley are optimistic and large businesses, such as Premier Inn, are taking an interest in the town showing confidence in the area. “I think Barnsley is a fantastic place to do business, it’s in an excellent location and there is a great work ethic here.

“We have a lot of skilled people wanting to develop their business ideas in Barnsley. It’s vital for people to support these local companies in order to boost the economy. “During my time at Ardsley House Hotel I used local suppliers where at all possible and generally saw a return to the business from those I worked with. “If Barnsley businesses offer competitive rates and quality products/services there is no reason for people to look elsewhere. “Barnsley 4 Me should help promote this and in my opinion anything that makes local business more accessible has got to be a benefit.”

HOME CARE OFFERS VALUE FOR MONEY BY KATE PICKLES ELDERLY and ill people in Barnsley get charged less for care than those living in most of the country, figures have revealed.

Red-letter day: Craig Francis.

Postie who saved lady bags a bravery award BY KATE PICKLES A POSTMAN who helped a stroke victim when on his rounds has won a bravery award. Craig Francis, of Palm Street, Old Town, was nominated for the prize after giving first aid to an elderly woman. He had been making deliveries in his usual patch in Dodworth when he saw the elderly woman laying on her kitchen floor.

The door was unlocked so Craig went in, put her in the recovery position and phoned for an ambulance. Craig, 31, won the top prize for the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North East section of the awards recognising Royal Mail staff who have ‘gone the extra mile’. Now the father-of-one, who has been a postman for eight years, will travel to London to see if he is crowned postie of the year on May 24.

Barnsley Council put a cap on home care bills so nobody should pay more than £60 a week for home help compared to £850 in Brighton and £328 in Cambridge. The type of care involved includes helping people get washed, dressed and fed and is mainly given to over-65s and disabled people of any age. A council spokesman

said it came up with the amount based on feedback from a consultation in 2007. “In devising our new charges we carried out some research to establish what people in Barnsley would generally be able to afford when these rules are applied.” A national set of rules was published by the Department of Health for the financial assessment of people’s ability to pay care costs. The statistics were revealed by consumer group Which? following a Freedom of Information request. A spokesman for Age

Concern in Barnsley said the figures were useful to

give comparisons across the UK.

Disabled to have say DISABLED people in Barnsley are to be given more control over how public money is spent on their behalf. Barnsley Council has teamed up with Sheffield City Council to become a ‘trailblazer site’. That means disabled people will have more choice over what support and services they receive. Barnsley is one of ten pilot schemes being run across England. The borough will get £710,000 to fund the scheme over two years.

THOUSANDS OF EELS TO BE SET FREE BY ADAM CIVICO THOUSANDS of eels will be released by ecologists into the Dearne Valley. A truck will deliver 50,000 young eels to the Old Moor Wetlands Centre at Broomhill on Friday. The site is managed by the RSPB.

Reserve manager Pete Wall said eels used to be widespread in the valley but had been wiped out because of pollution caused by industrialisation. RSPB is working with other organisations including The Environment Agency and Natural England on a project called The Dearne Valley Green Heart.

The reintroduction of eels is part of that. Pete said: “Eels used to be in the Dearne in huge numbers and were a staple of the diet before the Don and Dearne rivers became highly polluted. “There has been a 95 per cent decline since industrialisation. “It is a species that has been lost from the river system but

of the food chain and are likely to encourage birds like bitterns back to the Dearne Valley.” The project had to submit an application to the Environment Agency to convince them that Old Moor was an appropriate place. “We got the call last week to say we were getting them,” said Pete. They will be captured in

that ought to be present. “The washlands at Old Moor have been identified as an ideal habitat for eels.” Their reintroduction will also be of benefit to the bird population at Old Moor. “Some will be eaten by the birds,” said Pete. “Which we do not think is a bad thing. “They are an important part

NEW ROAD WILL spring getaway BE CREATED AT Spring break RETAIL PARK jollies BY MIKE COTTON

CHANGES to the junctions of the Peel Centre retail park onto Harborough Hill Road have been approved, even though councillors were concerned they would increase pollution. A new road to the Peel Centre will come out onto

Harborough Hill uphill of Halfords. It will be for service and delivery vehicles only, leaving the existing entrance and exit for customers. It will mean the service road between Halfords and Focus DIY can be removed, and ‘landscaped’, but Labour Coun Doug Birkinshaw thinks it means new shops will be

put in its place. All goods traffic will have to go up Harborough Hill to the roundabout at Sheffield Road and Westway. The council had previously refused permission, but the company appealed and a public inquiry began. This was halted when the firm put forward a revised plan which it said took account of some of the concerns, but councillors refused this plan as well on pollution grounds due to the extra goods vehicles going up the hill. The company which owns the site said it would appeal and apply for further costs if the council did not reconsider its position. A council spokesman said: “A report was put to planning regulatory board on April 6, which included legal advice that a further refusal of the amended proposal would be unsustainable and could lead to further costs being incurred by the council.” The plans have now been approved. Coun Birkinshaw said: “I think a lot of board members were unhappy to be put in that position, feeling like they had to back off. “Peel were throwing money at it.”

GETTING through the first few months of the year can be a hard slog, but now you’ve made it why not reward yourself with a spring getaway? Whether it be a country break in the UK, or an overseas holiday in the sunshine, taking a break in May or June can be a great way to avoid the crowds and lift the spirits. For those not wanting to travel too far from home, a short break in the Lake District is ideal. Surrounded by picturesque scenery, the Lake District is the perfect destination for those who love the great outdoors and will never tire of its stunning countryside or breathtaking views.

SPORTS SHOP OWNER, DIES AGED 62 BY EMMA SPENCER A town centre sports shop owner, Barry Keegan, has died aged 62. Keegan Sports has been in business on old Doncaster Road for 26 years and was set up by Barry’s father Walter. Barry trained as a mechanic with Barnsley Brewery but joined the family business which he ran with wife Kathleen. He grew up on Tune Street where his parents ran an off licence before moving to Ardsley where Barry met Kathleen. He played badminton but also took to the field many times for Carlton Cricket Club. He would later sponsor junior and senior cricket leagues including the Keegan Sports Barnsley and District League. Away from sport, Barry and Kathleen were invol-

ved in community life and youth activities. Barry, of Ambleside Grove, Ardsley, was chairman of Ardsley and Stairfoot Community Association and over the years had led youth clubs at Ardsley, Millhouse

Green, St Helen’s and Royston. He and his family were keen skiers and travelled all over the world. Daughters Helen and Lisa, now 37 and 27 respectively, were both in the British Children’s Team and Barry was on the committee of the Yorkshire and Humberside Ski Federation. Barry also leaves two grandchildren Olivia, eight, and Jacob, four. Kathleen said: “He loved working with young people and has helped a lot. “I think cricket was his main love but he loved to ski all over the world. “He was very well known through the shop and with the youth service.” The service was held on Monday at Ardsley Crematorium.

Ready to do battle: Suitably armoured at the medieval re-enactment day at Wentworth Castle is seven-yearold Bethany Parr.

Children’s centre wants to build A CHILDREN’S centre is planning to build a pram and buggy shelter. Robert Skidmore, of Dodworth and Gilroyd Children’s Centre on Silverdale Drive at Gilroyd has applied to the council for permission to build the centre. Other applications include: Leslie Newsome, 52 Lambert Road, Kendray, for re-roof; Roger Armitage, 5 Kendal Green, Worsbrough, for erection of detached garage; Andrew Wilson, 205 Rotherham Road, Monk Bretton, for creation of access to classified road; Mrs B Sayell, 19 Armyne Grove, Cundy Cross, for single-storey rear extension to dwelling for disabled person; Mr J Thomas, c/o agent for amendment to siting and design of previously approved scheme for detached dwelling at land adjacent 12 Jermyn Croft, Dodworth; Ben Redfern, c/o agent for erection of studio flat at land at Springfield Street, Barnsley; R Allen, 26 Arundel Drive, Lundwood, for detached garage to rear of dwelling; Emma Charlesworth, 95 Mount Vernon Road for detached double garage with attached conservatory; M Wormersley, 15 Bridge Gardens, Barnsley for remodelling of roof including the raising of the ridge height by about 1.9m and installation of three dormer windows.

Wartime play to be performed at Civic A PLAY by a Barnsley writer, which follows the lives of a Polish family during World War Two, will be perfomed at the Civic next month. A Distant Country will follow the family as they travel from Poland to Yorkshire via Siberia, Iran and Italy. The story is told in a series of recollections by an 85-yearold Pole to his great-granddaughter. Writer Sylvia Le Breton, from Cawthorne, gathered information from the children of the Polish people, who were able to find a safe home in Barnsley. Many of the soldiers came to the army camp at Cannon Hall, living in one of the Nissen huts which were dotted around the park. A Distant Country will run from June 7 to 10. Tickets from Gallery 2 and Cannon Hall.

What businesses have to say… A&A Building and Plastering Contractors Darrel Bailey

RB Joiner & Handyman Richard Burgin

Excelerate School of Motoring Louise Clarke

A gap in the market led Richard Burgin to set up his business, RB Joiner & Handyman, in 2008. In less than two years the company has expanded from one employee to five. “I saw an opportunity for someone who could provide a reliable one-stop-shop for all domestic needs,” says Richard.“I started out by myself, building up the company around a ‘no job too small’ motto and things quickly took off. “As the business expanded I took on people who would broaden the firm’s services and there are now five of us including a builder, electrician and plasterer.

Darrel Bailey first set up his business A&A Building and Plastering Contractors five years ago. Since that time the business has gone from strength-tostrength, gathering a strong Barnsley customer base. “After gaining experience working in the plastering industry and doing jobs for friends and family I decided to go self employed,” says Darrel. “From that point the business progressed, going from a small plastering firm to a full building service. “I take on experienced subcontractors to carry out jobs such as electrics, plumbing and tiling, which means I can easily take care of extensions, loft conversions and even full house builds. “Over time A&A Building and Plastering Contractors has built up a glowing reputation, with more than half of our work coming through recommendations from customers in the Barnsley area. “In order to reach more potential customers throughout the borough I was keen to be a part of the Barnsley 4 Me directory. “People look for everything online now so the website gives the firm great exposure and makes it easily accessible to more people. “I find that people like to use local businesses because they find them more trustworthy, so it’s good to see a directory purely for Barnsley businesses.

“We have built up a large base of repeat customers in Barnsley but we want to make sure we are reaching as many local people as possible, which is why I upgraded my Barnsley 4 Me profile. “The website is another point of contact for potential customers, plus advertising online provides an opportunity to add website links, examples of our work and customer testimonials – something that would be difficult to do through other advertising mediums. “I always use local businesses wherever possible and would encourage others to do the same – as the saying goes, Charity begins at home. “It’s important to support each other for the local economy to grow. I have employed four local people in less than two years which proves supporting Barnsley businesses benefits people in the community.”

A career change put Louise Clarke in the driving seat of her own business which helps people throughout Barnsley gain independence. “I had become bored in my job and was looking for a new challenge when I decided to become a driving instructor,” says Louise.“I trained whilst working full time until I had enough pupils to set up my own business, Excelerate School of Motoring. “I love the diversity of my job and despite teaching the same subject, no two days are the same. “In my job I get to meet people of all different ages from throughout the Barnsley area and find it very rewarding helping them to gain their independence by teaching them to drive. “Barnsley 4 Me provides a step on from newspaper advertising, making details of my business available to customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “I like that it’s a Barnsley based product for Barnsley people. “Through the Diamond Package I can include all the information about the driving school that people could possibly need including a business profile, contact details, email links and photographs.

“I will be using the website myself in order to find local businesses for building supplies and also subcontractors.

“Most importantly I can add testimonials from my students which allows potential customers to read independent opinions about the service I offer rather than only having what I say to go on.

“If Barnsley businesses support one another it should help create more jobs in the area and lead to a stronger local economy.”

“And because the website is updated daily I can easily make changes to freshen up my profile adding new details, photos and testimonials.”
