POLICE offered crime prevention advice to motorists parked at beauty spots in Barnsley. Community officer Anthony Holmes was at car parks near the TransPennine Trail, Winscar reservoir, Langsett Barn and Dunford Bridge. He told people to keep valuables hidden because thieves target the areas.

working a four-day week and things were looking bleak. “But we are back on full-time working and we are busy for the rest of the summer.” Last week, two loss-making firms Dosco Overseas Engineering, a tunnelling equipment designer and maker, and Hollybank Engineering Company, a supplier to the mining industry, were disposed of. According to a financial report published this week, the company was ‘insulated’ from the effects of the building industry recession by advance orders. Most of the jobs completed in 2009 were won in 2007 and 2008. The report warns: “The full effects of the downturn will only become apparent in 2010.”

BRASS BAND FAN DIES, AGED 66 A STALWART of the brass band world from Cawthorne has died aged 66. Peter Badham, of Barnby Furnace Cottages, was connected with brass bands for about 50 years. He joined the Mellings Griffiths Band in his native Cardiff. He started as a cornet player but progressed to tenor horn. After moving to Barnsley in 1974, he joined the Hade Edge Band, Holmfirth, because his widow Heather’s father, Jack Fisher, was conductor. He spent 30 years as the band’s chairman, five years as its secretary and was latterly vice-president.

Mr Badham helped other bands such as Brighouse and Rastrick, Thurlstone, Frickley Colliery and Skelmanthorpe. He spent most of his working life in electronics. He worked for the weighing equipment company Avery Scales in Cardiff, Doncaster and Barnsley. He was at E B Equipment at Redbrook for about ten years from 1980. Until two years ago, he ran a painting and decorating business, Cawthorne Home Care. He died in Barnsley Hospital on May 8 and had no sons nor daughters. Funeral is today (Wednesday) at 12.45pm at Birdsedge Methodist Church followed by cremation at Grenoside.

Face winner really rocks

VIRGIN SET TO CUT OFF THE ‘DODGY’ BOXES VIRGIN Media is switching off its old signal in Barnsley and turning to a new one – but it should only affect those using ‘knock off’ TV equipment. Customers are being sent new ‘smartcards’ to fit in the back of the cable receiver boxes. It will stop anyone using an illegitimate card or box from watching TV when the old signal is shut down over the next few weeks. Malcolm Davies, Virgin Media’s head of fraud and security said: “I urge anyone considering buying a dodgy cable box or a ‘knock off’ TV card to think again because they are needlessly throwing money away.

BY KATE PICKLES ABII Herbert already has the Face of Barnsley — and now she’s got the feet to match.

“The new encryption we’re introducing across Barnsley this month will protect our existing customers and make it impossible for anyone else to get our services unless they pay for them legitimately. “I know it’s embarrassing for anyone who has already been misled and conned by these sellers, but if they contact us we will try to help. “Virgin Media’s team will not ask difficult questions, but will be able to offer advice and help on how to get services legitimately.” The firm can be contacted on 08000 521255.

Residents are angry over scheme for ‘monstrosity’ RESIDENTS living next to Wentworth Industrial Park have objected to a 50ft ‘monstrosity’ that could be built if a planning appeal is approved. They were also angry that new warehouses could be built when there are already several large units in the local area

that have been vacant since they were built years ago. Tim Dean, from appellant Gladman Developments Limited, said the new buildings would be made less conspicuous by covering them in green cladding.

Dancing cousins: Abii Herbert and Connor Crowcroft who are the north east champions in rock ’n’ roll dancing. Picture: Brett Carr

The 16-year-old took gold with dance partner Connor Crowcroft, 17, at a regional dancing competition on Sunday. The duo, who have danced together for more than six years, were crowned north east rock ’n’ roll champions at the contest in Durham. “It’s a tough competition so we’re really pleased to have won it again,” said Abii. “It didn’t come as a total shock because it’s the fifth time we’ve won including the national championships. But it’s nice to be running champions and win it year after year. “We do freestyle, street and slow dancing styles together but our favourite is rock and roll. It’s a lot of fun and probably what we’re best at dancing together.” Abii, from Hemingfield, practises every Tuesday and Saturday with cousin Connor at Litestep Studios in Barnsley. Connor, a performing arts student at Barnsley College, was also awarded the top honours for his freestyle dance. “I’d love to get a job dancing on cruise ships when I’ve finished my college course,” he said. “I think it would be a great way to see the world by doing what I enjoy.” Now the pair are training hard to retain their national championship crown at a competition in November.

COUNCILLOR TO BOW OUT OF POLITICS A LONG-SERVING councillor and Labour Party veteran is to bow out of local politics because he is fed up of ‘negative campaigning’. Coun Mike Stokes, a member of the council’s ruling cabinet, told the Chronicle that he will not seek re-election when his term of office expires next year. The 73-year-old has fought in virtual-

ly every local and national election since 1959, either as a campaigner, candidate or election agent, and says this election campaign is the first one he’s not enjoyed. “In those TV debates, did you see when they attacked the other side? Their score went down on that graph across the screen showing what people thought of them. “The only people I’m happy to knock

are the BNP, because they’re so misguided you can’t do anything for them but have great sorrow for them.” The stalwart is one of the more recognisable characters about the town hall – not least because of his long flowing hair. He said: “When I was at school I had the Tony Curtis cut, Teddy Boy stuff. But in the armed forces you had to have it cut back to the bone almost. “So when I came out, I vowed never

to have another haircut again. And I’ve almost lived up to that.” A lifelong trade unionist, he worked in several roles within unions. He had also been a radio and TV service engineer, and a teacher working in both further education, and professional training. He was made redundant from his last full-time job as education officer at NUPE, when it was amalgamated to

form UNISON in 1990. He became a councillor for the first time in 1978, having joined the Labour Party in 1964. He served on South Yorkshire County Council from 1981 to 1985. He was next elected back onto Barnsley Council in 2002 in the Central Ward. His term of office expires at the next local election.

Carole on target for memorial A GREAT-GRANDMA campaigning for a memorial to mark the graves of hundreds of babies is more than half way towards her target. Carole Taylor, 69, has raised almost £6,000 of the £11,000 needed for a marble statue to mark the mass burial site at Barnsley Cemetery, once used for paupers and babies who died aged less than a week. Carole’s daughter Michelle died when she was one day old in 1971. She was taken away and Carole never saw her again, she only found out her baby had been buried when a vicar complained no one had attended the service. It took her another ten years to find out where Michelle was buried. Her resting place is in one section of a

public grave containing an estimated 400 babies and adults in a previously unmarked area of the cemetery. The council has since put a sign up informing the public the site contains graves and asking them to be respectful. But Carole, of Lulworth Close, Barnsley, wants a lasting monument for her daughter and the other babies buried there. “I want to make sure Michelle and the others are never forgotten, it’s what they deserve,” she said. “Dogs used to foul on the site and children played on it until they put the sign up because no one knew what was there. “I would have liked to have had individual markers but it would have

been too much to raise. The £11,000 for this is a lot of money but it will be worth it.” Carole has raised a lot of the money already from selling donated goods at the charity shop she has set up at the former post office on Doncaster Road. But the lease ends in September and she is determined to raise the rest of the money needed before then. A fund-raising night will be held on July 8, at East Dene Working Men’s Club starring three acts from Live Art Studios. Tickets will be available from the club in the next few weeks.

The ambitious project is at the heart of the council’s Remaking Barnsley scheme but was delayed when funding was withdrawn because of the economic crisis. Its original budget was £180m.

Engineers are considering new designs for the ‘undercroft’ a subterranean area for storage and unloading areas. Coun Houghton said: “The undercroft is a big part of the cost, engineering that into a new shape. The more changes you have to make the more expensive it gets.” The council and regional funding organisation Yorkshire Forward are paying for a large part of the construction cost – but bank loans are needed to make the project viable. “We are still prepared to support the scheme but there is a limit. £180m was too much for the banks so we have got to get the cost down.” The 1249 Partnership between the council and commercial developers was created to carry out the redevelopment. Coun Houghton said the partnership agreements would be resigned and compulsory purchase orders will be enacted so the scheme can go ahead when money is in place. Firms that had shown interest, including Debenhams, and a cinema chain were still keen to move in when the new market is built. It is hoped work will start in 18 months.

The latest job advertised is for a marketing and events assistant at £16,000 a year. Four posts were made redundant in March, including one from marketing, after the Trust said the gardens were operating at a loss. Last month the Trust advertised for a three day a week finance manager and visitor services staff. A spokesman for the Trust said: “The restructure has delivered the £70,000 in savings that were required, but it also identified the need for a full-time marketing and events assistant to help support Wentworth’s transition from restoration project to major tourist attraction.”

SPORT

O’BRIEN IS TIPPED TO MAKE IMPACT MARK Robins’ first signing of the summer has been tipped to make a big impact for the Reds in the

Championship. Winger Jim O'Brien, 22, who has been playing in the Scottish Premier League with Motherwell,

has agreed a pre-contract with the Oakwell Club and will formally complete his move on June 1. Said Oakwell director Don Rowing: “Jim is a player who has come highly recommended and Mark has watched him, sees great potential in him, and was very keen to sign him.” O’Brien’s excellent efforts for Motherwell earned him a place in the Scottish Premier League PFA Team of the Year. He attracted the interest of numerous clubs, both north and south of the border, but plumped for Barnsley. O’Brien’s final two matches for Motherwell have been goal feasts. He helped the Well come from 6-2 down to gain an astonishing 6-6 draw with visitors Hibernian – and then on Sunday turned in an excellent individual performance as Motherwell snatched two stoppagetime goals to draw 3-3 at Ibrox, home of newlycrowned champions Glasgow Rangers.
