FEET? NOTHING TO CARP ABOUT BY CARLA GEORGE A NEW spa has opened in Barnsley. It employs 500 beauticians who promise to revive and soften your feet. The only thing is they’re fish. Staff at Tickle Toes are mini carp no more than four inches long who enjoy nothing more than sucking dead skin from your
feet. “It was a pair of brothers who bought the Garra Rufa fish to the world’s attention,” says owner Steve Sutton who has set up Tickle Toes with friend Scott Weselby. “Having chanced upon a hot spring in Kangal, Turkey, they dipped their feet in, to find a school of small fish offering a gentle, tingling massage. “They enjoyed it so much
they returned until one of the brothers who suffered skin problems noticed the symptoms disappearing.” Steve decided to open his own natural foot spa – the first in Barnsley – when income from his Kitchen and Bathroom store dropped. “The lease on the shop wasn’t up for another two years and I was losing money. I saw a salon in
Meadowhall which does a similar thing and thought I would have a go as it looked popular.” Dipping my feet into one of the tanks, 150 tiddlers rush to feast on my toes. Luckily they don’t have teeth. Their suction cup mouths are perfectlyshaped (apparently) for gently lifting dry skin away. The sensation is a strange and tickly one but I find it relaxing – it feels like hundreds of small electric pulses shooting through your foot. “They gather at the point where there is the most food (hard skin) and the bigger the fish the stronger the sensation, says Steve, 51. Looking down I see most of the mini carp have

out of the water, they feel smoother. I am very impressed with the results, better than I have ever achieved with most foot creams. “It is all to do with the Garra Rufa’s saliva, it has an enzyme which contains healing properties. It has been used in places like Thailand and Singapore for years – they even have
larger tanks for full body submersion.” For those worried about hygiene, attached to each of the four blue tanks is a sterilising system which cleans the water every 30 minutes. ■ Tickle Toes on Regent Street South was officially opened on Saturday.

LAD’S BALLET SPOT YOUNGSTER Keenan Faulkner has pirouetted his way into the Royal Ballet School’s junior section. The nine-year-old auditioned for the Londonbased school in April and was accepted this month. Keenan, of Racecommon Road, Barnsley, will attend
27 classes in the school’s Leeds studios in September. Mum, Zoe, said he has wanted to go to the Royal Ballet School since he was five. She said: “A couple of years ago he danced with Philip Mosely, the ‘real Billy Elliot’, who is a successful dancer.
Growing interest in pot plant
“He signed Keenan’s shoes and told him about the school. That was it, he has wanted to go ever since and says he wouldn’t mind moving to London next year!” Zoe said her son joined Jill Brookes School of Dance with his sister Olivia in 2005. She said: “He was only three when we took him to the school but he took to it like a fish to water. He does all sorts of dance including modern, gymnastics, tap and modern but ballet is his favourite. “When he is ten he will be able to board full time at the London-based school, at the moment he is too young so he can only do the day classes.” Dance teacher Keri Archer, said: “He has done so well, he is the first boy from our school to get in so far. “We knew he was talented though as he achieved 90 marks in an IDTA ballet exam last year. The average pass mark is 85.” Keenan will require sponsorship to attend the school. His family hope to hold fund-raisers throughout the year.
AN EIGHT-FOOT trunk is not what you expect when you buy a pot plant — but this unknown monster has taken over the garden of one couple in Monk Bretton. Patricia Cochrane bought it three years ago but didn’t expect it to outgrow its pot so soon. “When I bought it from a local garden centre a few years ago it didn’t have a label. It just looked like a normal plant. “It started off small but it has just grown and my husband has had to re-pot it,” she said. The plant is attracting attention from the neighbours on Wellington Close, but, despite looking for information in books, Mr and Mrs Cochrane do not know what it is called or where it is from. Mrs Cochrane added: “It’s so hard to move and it’s so unusual — I really would love somebody to tell me what it is.”

Town’s unemployment figures falling UNEMPLOYMENT in Barnsley has fallen every month since January but is still almost double what is was two years ago.
There were 7,085 people on job seekers’ allowance according to the latest Office for National Statistics figures for May.
That’s 5.1 per cent of the working-age population. Nearly three times more men are unemployed than women.

Tucked away on Blucher Street in the town centre, the sought-after school was founded in 1985 as a notfor profit, social enterprise joint venture between two churches in the Barnsley area. The initial aim was to provide a good-quality education for their own children, but since 1991 the school has opened its doors to families of nominal or no Christian belief and families of other faiths. The school was established as an
independent school and became a charitable limited company in 1995. Today it remains an integral part of the ministry of Hope House Church. With a maximum of 12 pupils per year group, those who attend Barnsley Christian School become part of a small family community and enjoy a smooth transition from reception class to infant and junior, through to the senior department of the school. Small class numbers ensure pupils receive valuable one-to-one time with teachers, which leads to exceptional exam results. Over the past six years GCSE students at Barnsley Christian School have achieved a 100
Church brings hope to the Barnsley people... HOPE House Church is made up of people from a range of backgrounds, nationalities and ages who share a passion for worship and for serving the local community. At Hope House members don’t lock themselves in their building, but instead take their message out into the streets and are actively involved with the life of Barnsley. Paul Bedford, Pastor of Hope House, says the church is always looking for people to join the church on its exciting journey. “We believe church is an exciting, creative, fun place to be with powerful worship, inspirational speakers and great friends all bringing hope to people’s lives and being a positive influence in our town and nation”. The church is home to Barnsley
Christian School that provides a great education and encourages pupils and families to explore the Christian faith for themselves. Hope House is part of the Ground Level Network of Churches which enables the members to continue their work beyond Barnsley and into other towns and nations in Europe, Africa and South and North America. Hope House Church life is expressed through the lives of church members of all ages living in their local communities and meeting together in small groups, activity groups and a community congregation. “We want to make a difference to the lives of people we meet bringing hope, care and consideration, trusting relationships and faith in God.”
