DRUGS DROP-IN FINDS NEW BASE BY CARLA GEORGE POLICE and volunteers have declined to reveal the new location of a controversial drugs drop-in service. The Barnsley Churches Drugs Project at St Peter’s Church has been a concern for residents since moving to the Doncaster Road
venue last year. Locals have complained of drug users injecting in the streets, drug dealing, begging, verbal abuse and litter. They believe the church, which is close to a primary school, is not the best place for the project. At a meeting last month Insp Julie Mitchell said
another location for the project had been found but would not reveal the location. She said: “We are actively looking for new premises to hold the drugs project. “I am hopeful that a new one has been found; however, we are currently at such an early stage that we can’t give out any further information at present.” Tasking officer Mark Miller confirmed a new location had possibly been found. He said: “We have been looking for a venue that would be more appropriate and have less of an impact on residential areas. “I have suggested one particular venue which is being progressed at the moment which would be an ideal opportunity to join up with other counselling facilities. “The project is a valuable provision and we do need to maintain these services
within Barnsley because there are problems that need addressing. “This venue would link all support services together to make an effective one-stop shop for people to go.” He said although nothing had been confirmed early indications had shown volunteers thought it was a good idea. Volunteer Kathleen Bell said: “I have always said if they can find us a new venue I will be prepared to have a look. “On average we get 30 people at the drop-in, sometimes nearly 50 and St Peter’s has been perfect because we can use the church hall and the kitchen facilities.” n The Barnsley Drugs Project provides food and activities for homeless people and people with drug and alcohol problems.

‘FASHION DOCTOR’ RITA IS HONOURED Injured gymnast BY ADAM CIVICO BOUTIQUE owner Rita Britton was told off for ‘looking ridiculous’ in her graduation gown as she collected an honorary award from the University Campus Barnsley. Rita, who runs Pollyanna on Market Hill, was made an honorary doctor on Tuesday. She said: “There is no bigger honour than being recognised by your home town. “It was exquisitely enjoyable and has taken a lot to come down to earth. “My three sons were there and two of their partners and my grandson who is four. He said to me, ‘you look ridiculous’ that does bring you back to earth.” Despite that she added: “It was up there with getting married, giving birth or passing my driving test.”
‘My three sons were there and two of their partners and my grandson who is four. He said to me, ‘you look ridiculous’ that does bring you back to earth’ Rita received her honour on the day when hundreds of students from the campus picked up degree certificates. She said: “How refreshing it is to see education doing well in Barnsley. It had been a privilege to meet actor Patrick Stewart, chancellor of the university, before the ceremony, said Rita.

A GYMNAST who trained with a broken hand has won silver at the world championships. Jennie Miller, 25, of Cranston Close, Monk Bretton, was in the medals at the competition in Poland last weekend. The former Priory pupil performed three routines to reach the final eight as part of Great Britain’s senior women’s trio before coming second in the final on Saturday night. Jennie said: “We were last on so it all depended on how well we did but we did the best routine we had ever done. Everyone was waiting for the score to come through to see if they were still in the medals.It took a few minutes to come up and when it did I couldn’t believe it. I started crying.” The achievement was all the more poignant for Jennie as it was her last international competition before she retired.

HEADTEACHER LANDS TOP JOB BY MIKE COTTON
■ School hero: Teacher Richard Smith is presented with flowers for his caring attitude. Carlton Primary children said Mr Smith was the man to turn to when they felt
down. The flowers were presented as part of a scheme called ‘School Heroes’. Mr Smith is given a bouquet by pupils Bobbi Charnock and Thomas Wiggan.

A PRIMARY school headteacher has landed one of the biggest jobs in Barnsley schools. Simon Barber takes over as head at St Michael’s High School at Athersley. It is unusual for primary head teachers to move to secondary schools — but it’s not an ordinary secondary school. In two years it will merge with St Dominic’s Catholic and Holy Cross Church of England primary schools to form a Catholic and Church of England school for children from three to 16. He said: “You’re usually a primary school teacher or a secondary school teacher, and there isn’t a lot of movement between the two.
New role: Simon Barber. “But this school is going to be unique because it’s neither a primary nor a secondary school.” Simon, who leaves Silkstone Primary, said it was a ‘terrifically nerveracking moment’ when the government announced its plans to cancel school rebuilding projects. He said: “I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the news that Barnsley’s
schools are going ahead.” Silkstone Primary is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, the highest grade it can give. Simon and the rest of his staff have been called upon to help struggling schools to improve. He said: “It isn’t me that makes it outstanding. It was already a really good school when I came, but I like to think I’ve contributed. “I’m extremely proud of Silkstone Primary and it will be a wrench to leave. I’ve had a wonderful five years. “But sometimes when you have an opportunity you have to seize it with both hands.” He says the new school will offer fantastic opportunities to its pupils, and hopes the Catholic and Church of England ethos will make for a ‘caring and family orientated’ atmosphere. Simon, 40, is originally from Stockton-on-Tees but has lived in Barnsley for about 20 years. He attends Silkstone All Saints’ Church.
Saying farewell: Kingstone School retiring teachers Stuart Taylor, left, Margaret Atkinson and Steve Reed.
Retiring teachers chalk up 81 years THREE teachers retired on Friday after working at Kingstone School for ‘81 years’ between them. Steve Reed, a PE and maths teacher, has been at the school for 38 years — his entire career. Maths teacher Stuart Taylor is also retiring after 23 years at Kingstone. He leaves as an assistant headteacher. Head of geography Margaret Atkinson has given 20 years to Kingstone, and is according to the head ‘very popular’ and supportive of her team who have ‘tremendous respect for her’. He added: “All three have been the most wonderful colleagues. Their experience, wisdom and insight will be impossible to replace.”

COUNCIL WORKERS’ FATE NOT CLEAR UNTIL WINTER BY MIKE COTTON MOST workers losing their jobs at the council are unlikely to know their fate until December or January, the Chronicle has learnt.
Making cuts: Leader of the council Steve Houghton. (S)
It is feared hundreds of jobs will go as cuts are made across the council. The council’s senior managers and leading councillors have been holding talks throughout this month examining how they can tackle the unprecedented spending cuts. Leader of the council Steve Houghton said it was a case of
working out what was the bare minimum level of service it was legally obliged to perform and seeing what money was left after that. He said: “One thing that’s just an example is grass cutting. “We don’t legally have to cut the grass. “But, of course, we want to cut the grass and most people would reasonably expect us to. “So what’s the minimum people would want to live with?” He said no decisions had yet been made about any services or jobs that would go. “It’s a case of looking at exactly what we do, exactly what it costs and exactly what we have to do
as a legal minimum. “Once we’ve done all that, in August or September, that’s when we’ll start looking more into the fine detail and talking to the trade unions. “But, in the meantime, what we’ll do is keep talking to people and try to put as much information out there as we can. “It is going to be a very difficult time for everyone. There is no easy way to do this.” He went on to lay the blame squarely on the coalition government. “What we’re dealing with is far worse than anything we’ve seen before.
“Under Thatcher, they limited the level of growth. Now we’re talking about real term cuts of anything between 25 and 40 per cent. This is not just about cutting the deficit. It goes way beyond that. There is no need for this scale of cuts. “What they should be doing is tackling it much more slowly. As the economy grows, you start to cut back the deficit.” n What do you think?

IS YOUR CAR READY FOR A LONG TRIP? SUMMER is here and motorists know what that means - long distance driving. With the exception of those who drive hundreds of miles as part of their job, most motorists only make long journeys a few times a year.
Stranded: Avoid breaking down on long journeys by having your car regularly serviced.
One of these rare occasions is often the family summer holiday when vehicles are really put through their paces in hot conditions, which can mean trouble if a car is not properly maintained and prepared. Cars, like people, need to be looked after, which includes treating them to regular services. While
some drivers keep on top of their services, others only take their car into the garage when something goes wrong. Cost is usually the main reason motorists skimp on a summer service, but the cost is nothing compared to an expensive holiday being ruined by a breakdown. Itâ€™s important not to forget that while at a first glance your car may appear fine, but mechanics are specialists in preventing problems and a regular service could actually save you money in the long run. The check list is pretty detailed to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy for the long journey ahead,
and while some things can be taken care of at home, others will require the attention of a mechanic at a reputable garage. Hot weather can put extra strain on the engine and cooling system of any vehicle and can lead to overheating. Many cars have air-conditioning which may require specialist attention if the system has been under-used during winter months. The electrical system, especially the battery, must be able to take the full brunt of the fan system at full blast on its coolest setting, so it will need checking, too.

Driver preparation: If you’re not used to motorway driving, remember to use your mirrors all the time and look further ahead to anticipate danger.

You should also make sure your system is fully charged with refrigerant and that any changes are done in line with the car manufacturer’s instructions. If you have not had the cooling system ‘flushed’, the cooling tubes may be clogged with rust or other substances. The related hoses and belts may need to be checked as well. As always keep a watchful eye on oil and water levels. Although slow wearing, it’s also worth having the clutch, steering and brakes checked before a long journey. Tyres are high up the list too. Remember long road trips with heavier-thannormal loads and very warm temperatures can put a great deal of stress on tyres. Make sure you have the recommended pressure in all your tyres, including the spare. It is vital not to overinflate them as this may cause the car to handle and brake poorly, and increase tyre wear. Windscreens should also be kept as clean as possible. Empty washer bottles, fly stains, sunlight and dust can all combine to impair vision for the motorist. The washer bottle should be checked regularly, and a new set of wipers should mean better vision and less streaking.

Call in the experts: Mechanics not only fix car troubles but they can prevent them too. It’s a good idea to get your vehicle thoroughly checked before any long journey. It is a good idea to check front and rear blades for wear before any long journey. Windscreen blades should be cleaned regularly to remove ground-in dirt and insects. Many people do more motorway driving in the summer than at any other time and the driver may need to do a little preparation themselves. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep before a long drive. If you can, avoid long journeys between midnight and 6am when your alertness is likely to be at a minimum and avoid a heavy meal before driving, as it may cause drowsiness. Many motorists will be taking their cars overseas
