‘BURNT OUT PUB IS UNSAFE AND SHOULD BE FLATTENED’ BY KATIA HARSTON A BURNT out pub needs to be demolished urgently because the building is unsafe, a councillor claims. The Woolley Miners’ Welfare, on Woolley Colliery Road, went up in flames in December after it closed. Coun Roy Miller, of the Darton East ward, is calling for the former pub to be demolished because it poses a threat to public safety. “It’s been attracting vandals since it went up in flames last year, even the steel work has been stolen and all of it has now gone, there isn’t a scrap left. “My concern is the site is unsafe and children are going in and breaking into the site to mess around in there.” Coun Miller said that unless something is done to secure it soon someone will get hurt. He added: “There is a chimney on the end which could go any minute. “It’s a wreck and needs to be flattened as soon as possible. “As a local member I believe it is a dangerous structure and what is worrying is those going in have managed to get the cellar doors open. “It is a ten foot drop into there and all it takes is for a youngster to come flying round

the corner and they’ll fall into it.” Coun Miller is hoping Barnsley Council will consider taking enforcement action to demolish the pub if the owners, Goldcrest Leisure, do not secure the site and do it. Goldcrest area manager, Steve Nolson, said the reason the company cannot do anything with the site is because of a long police investigation into the cause of the fire and protracted discussions with its insurers. When asked about vandalism and theft from the pub, and the safety issues raised by Coun Miller, Mr Nolson said ‘these things happen’. “We are waiting to be able to put our business into order,” he added. “The council put the fencing up, at great expense to ourselves. “If it is inadequate people need to speak to the council about that. “We are continuing to maintain the building so that it is closed and secured as it should be. “The company is looking at the options whether to rebuild it or not and we are waiting for approval to be given from the loss adjusters for the property to be demolished. “It is all in the hands of the loss adjusters who are still dealing with the case.”

FIRM BACKING FOR COALITION POLICIES BY IAN THOMPSON BUSINESS leaders say they are pleased many of their suggestions have been included in the coalition government’s programme. Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce has welcomed

the Con Lib-Dem proposals to cut red tape, review employment law and improve the competitiveness of the tourism industry. Policy and communications manager Andrew Denniff said the chamber hoped for more details on the coalition’s plans for things like reforming capital gains tax.

Advertiser’s Announcement

He called for the cancellation of a rise in National Insurance to support growth and job creation. “Moves to improve access to finance for smaller firms – the engine room of our economy – will be welcomed by many within our membership.” Mr Denniff said chambers in

Yorkshire and Humberside had called for reduction of the deficit to be tackled urgently. Other praised government promises include: ■ Plans to cut corporation tax. ■ An independent review of public sector pensions. ■ An end to plans for supplemen-

tary business rates if most firms do not give consent. ■ The opening up of government contracts to small firms. ■ Firms to be given a say about whether regional development agencies are turned into ‘Local Enterprise Partnerships’.

CAST CAN’T STOP LAST BLAST FOR GYMNAST BY KATE PICKLES A GYMNAST has been training to represent Great Britain in the World Championships – with a broken hand. Jennie Miller, of Cranston Close, Monk Bretton, broke it while practising for the competition in Poland in July. But the 24-year-old, who started acrobatic gymnastics when she was six, said she had not let it slow her preparations. “I did it when I was catching in a move called the triple,” she said. “I bent my hand the wrong way and it

broke. It was quite painful. “When I had the cast on I still went in for training and did different exercises to keep up my fitness. “It’s been healing okay and I’m having physio on it now. It should be fine in a couple of weeks. “I had the cast off so I’m just getting back into full training now.” The former Priory pupil had retired from the international scene to focus on coaching but was asked to return to competitive gymnastics last year. She won a bronze medal as part of the women’s trio at the European Acrobatic Championships in Portugal.

Now she hopes she can go better and get a silver or gold this summer before giving up competing and returning to coaching. Jennie said she was even more determined to enjoy the World Championships after a serious health scare in November. “It started off as a cold but then doctors diagnosed swine flu. “I deteriorated overnight and ended up getting rushed to hospital where they told me I had severe pneumonia. “They said I had been carrying it for quite a while but because I was fit my body had been fighting it.

“I had six weeks off and it was quite difficult to get back into training because I was so weak. “It makes you a stronger person as at times I wanted to give in but didn’t. “I’m really looking forward to Poland as it’s my last championships. “It’s exciting and sad at the same time as I’m retiring afterwards. “Even at 24 I’m quite old in the gymnastics world.” ■ Jennie needs to raise £1,500 sponsorship to compete. Anyone interested can contact her on 07734 815613.

Flipping talented: Jennie Miller.

Rubbish blitzed at park A TON of dumped rubbish was cleaned up near Ardsley park. The haul included a mattress, rubbish, cigarette ends and dog muck. Local police teams and the council, and a member of the public, blitzed the area behind Mount Street and Coronation Terrace earlier this month. The clean-up came after residents complained to a Crime and Safety subgroup meeting that the area was being used as a rubbish tip. Kendray and Worsbrough SNT Tasking Officer Paula Marshall said: “Many hands make light work and the combined efforts of the police, council and the public made this clean-up a success. “We will be monitoring the area to make sure the litter doesn’t build up again and would appeal for residents and people in the area to support us.”

Take on the darts champ BARNSLEY people will get the chance to challenge world darts champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor at the Yorkshire Festival of Sport later this summer. About 12 people will be selected to play Taylor at the event at Locke Park and Shaw Lane on August 28, 29 and 30. A raffle will have prizes including a flight with an instructor at Sherburn Aero Club. About 40 sports from archery to scuba diving will be represented. An ‘Antiques Roadshow’ style stall, live bands and other entertainment is planned. Charities such as the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Help for Heroes are expected to benefit. Firms are being urged to act as sponsors and get involved. For more details see www.yorkshirelive.co.uk

THREE WINS IN A ROW FOR COURT KINGS

Aces: Barnsley Tennis Club’s men’s team of Tom Drive, Paul Dunn, Chris Day, Ian Poole, John Selby and Ian Denton

BY DOUG O’KANE BARNSLEY Tennis Club men’s team continued their promotion chase with a third nail-biting win in a row. The town team defeated Brentwood 5-4 to leapfrog them into fourth in the Sheffield and District Men’s League Fourth Division. This victory in sweltering conditions is the third time in a row Barnsley have won by just one game. The club entered the Sixth Division in 2005 and have made steady progress ever since. They finished third last season and were on the same points as second place but missed out on promotion on rubbers won. This year has seen the number of adult teams increase from three to seven. The men’s side include three teenagers. One of those is 17-yearold captain Ian Poole who is thrilled with the way his squad has performed so far. “I have been delighted at the effort put in to every match this season and am amazed at the quality with which the team is playing,” said Poole. “We are improving in every match. The team mentality is great. We are not just six individuals like many teams. “Everyone bonds and enjoys the tennis whilst supporting each other.” after their shock defeat to record a ‘double bagel’ in a 6-0, 6-0 win over the Brentwood A pair. Dunn

and Denton put in a better performance in their final rubber but lost 6-4, 6-4 in tough conditions. This set up a final game showdown and star pairing Poole and Selby never looked in trouble as they dropped just two games in a thoroughly convincing win. They face sixth-placed Welbeck at Wilthorpe on June 5.
