Advertiser’s Announcement

Think you can’t quit smoking? That’s what Jonathan thought... Jonathan Rollinson, a 21year-old hairdresser, had doubts about stopping smoking. This is how he began the last 10 smokefree months – one day at a time… I first started smoking in the first teenage years at school. I started smoking because all my friends were smoking. I smoked more from leaving school, as I think being able to smoke made me smoke more. My family didn’t know that I smoked until I was 16, my mum could smell it on me I think from the start. But when I was 16 I told them that I smoked – nothing was said to me as they are smokers themselves. They weren’t impressed or happy that I smoked, but at 16 I could buy my own cigs so there was nothing they could really say. “I found lots of health problems from smoking even at the start, I noticed my breathing wasn’t as good, I felt it definitely held me back, I could tell that I smoked because if I walked a long distance, jogged or ran I could feel that my chest was really tight and it was difficult to breathe. Whenever I got a cold it went straight to my chest and it was worse than it would have been normally.” I quit smoking when I was 20, it will be a year in April. I quit

smoking for health reasons, I joined the gym, stopped smoking and noticed a huge difference. It was also for money reasons that I quit smoking, as I used to smoke over 20 a day so I had to buy 40 a day which was something like over £11.00 a day. I was sick of it! “I’ve been twice to the service for help. The first time I came I just used patches and inhalers it was really good and really helpful, but I didn’t feel it did enough for me and I felt in a bad mood and cranky all the time. The second time I came back another medication was recommended to me and within a few weeks, after the week with smoking I had a couple of draws and then I just stopped, as the smoking made me feel sick.” Since I stopped smoking my fitness has improved, I feel healthier, I feel more awake and I’m a lot better off financially, I bought a new car and that encouraged me to stop smoking as I knew I couldn’t keep up with both. I’ve got a daughter, who is 5 years old and I think from me

stopping smoking she has benefited from it as well. When she was born I was still smoking and even if I didn’t smoke near her, she would go into the room I had been smoking in and she could smell it on my clothes. So stopping smoking for her is one of the main reasons I quit. She says all the time “my daddy doesn’t smoke anymore” and to hear her say that is definitely an achievement and I know she is proud of me, that is worth it. I think if a child sees their parents smoke, I think it is a big influence on them, they will see it as ok for them to smoke and I definitely think it is a bad influence. I don’t miss smoking at all. I think for your family and for your health it would be best to stop smoking, because it just affects everybody not just yourself. Like Jonathan, many local people have found that ‘it’s all right to ask for help’. The Barnsley NHS Stop Smoking Service currently helps an average of 40 people to quit each week. For more information, drop into the Quitshop at 12-14 Eldon Street or call the Service on (01226) 737077.

Nature reserve needs your votes for victory in TV final A NATURE reserve has battled through to the final stage of The National Lottery Awards 2009. RSPB Old Moor will have to beat two finalists to win the Best Environment Project and £2,000 to spend on the reserve. Site Manager Pete Wall said: “We are absolutely thrilled that our supporters in Yorkshire have helped us reach the final of The National Lottery Awards. “Using Lottery funding, we have already regenerated the local landscape, which for years served the mining industry as a coal depot. “This has allowed birds and wildlife to flourish in an area recov-

ering from industrial decline. “Now we need people to vote again, this time for us to win, so that the pride our supporters feel in this project can be reflected to the rest of the nation.” The National Lottery Awards have seven categories to reflect each area of Lottery funding, and all seven winners will be announced on BBC1’s, The National Lottery: Big 7 on September 5. Public voting for the final ends at noon on Friday. Vote for RSPB Dearne Valley by calling 0844 686 5433 or at www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awa rds

Baddie: Impersonator and artist Gary Tiplady as ‘Jaws’ from James Bond at the Cooper Gallery.

JAWS GETS HIS TEETH INTO ART A PROFESSIONAL impersonator of James Bond baddie Jaws opened an exhibition of his art work and stories about his life at the Cooper Gallery.

TO PROMOTE OUR LEGAL SERVICES IN YOUR AREA WE WILL WRITE

A number of other Bond film character impersonators turned out to celebrate with Jaws including a couple of Sean Connerys, a Pierce Brosnan and a selection of other ‘baddies’. Gary Tiplady, who is 7ft 3in and weighs 25 stone, travels the world and has performed as the metal-toothed bad guy in the homes of celebrities including Madonna, Mel Gibson and Sting. Barnsley author Milly Johnson is writing his biography and it is through her that he ended up exhibiting at the Cooper. The collection features dozens of sculptures made out of chicken wire, including dogs, monkeys, and even one of himself as a one-stone baby on a set of butcher’s scales. It is open throughout the school summer holidays.

TAPPING INTO LUXURY BY MIKE COTTON RAYMOND Key has finally found luxury on tap. He’s been relaxing in his bath and having his first good cup of tea in three years. In the past he has been having quick baths or stand-up washes and making tea with bottled water. That’s because of the slime which has been coming out of his taps. But last week Berneslai Homes replaced all his plumbing and he and wife Jean have been able to enjoy tea from water out of the tap. Raymond, of Ryecroft, Smithies,

Replaced: Raymond Key with his new taps.

Mum-of-two sent to Helmand Province A MUM-OF-TWO has been sent to lead the air traffic control team for the RAF in Afghanistan. Flt Lt Cath Bowlzer, 32, from Darton, has left behind daughter Jessica, four, and son James, two, to spend four months at the Camp Bastion airfield in Helmand where she will run the air traffic control tower. The children will spend time with their grandparents, Jeff and Sheridan Pawson. Cath, whose husband Dave also serves with the RAF, is normally stationed at RAF Waddington near Lincoln, and while in Afghanistan she and her team will control more than 5,000 flights a month in and out of the camp. She hopes to make it back before Jessica’s first day at school.

said: “I’m really pleased with what Berneslai Homes have done. “They were brilliant, the people who came round, smashing. I’ve been able to relax in the bath for the first time in three years without lumps of gunge floating about. “It was absolutely lovely. They’ve done me all new proper copper pipework. “They’ve put me in a new stopcock, water meter, filter and new taps in the kitchen, bath and the sink. “We’ll just have to wait and see now if that’s sorted it.” In the past the cold tap would run for a few seconds before the white

goo starting seeping out. Earlier this year Yorkshire Water told the Chronicle the slime was called bio-film and was caused when household bacteria gets into the pipework. They said it was harmless but ‘unsightly’. None of the neighbours had the problem. Yorkshire Water said it had been caused within the house and therefore the responsibility of Berneslai Homes. A spokesman for BH said workers had fitted self draining taps.

Under the guidance of head coach Russ Barber, who is also in charge of the town’s Olympic swimmer James Kirton, Aynsley has shown considerable improvement in recent weeks. Having moved to the senior elite squad at Sheffield, she has worked hard adapting and changing her stroke to develop a stronger leg kick. She has also just competed in the Youth/Senior National Championships at Ponds Forge, where she did remarkably well. The 17-year-old landed gold in the 4x200m freestyle team event, with Aynsley’s time a personal best 2-03.77; silver in the 1,500m

in 16-41.82 (smashing 25 seconds off her pb); bronze in the 800m with a time of 8-48.25 (11 seconds faster than her previous best) and bronze in the 400m freestyle in 4-17.16, which was again another personal best by three seconds. The former Foulstone School pupil also made the final of the 200m freestyle where she clocked 2-04.88 (a new pb by three seconds). Making that success more impressive was the fact that Aynsley competed in the Open Water National Finals the day before at Rother Valley, where she swam in the 2k open age group and gained a silver medal behind Charlotte Wooliscroft, who had just returned from the World Open Water Championships in Rome.
