Talented Rai gets degree at 63

PLANS to sell food and drink from a home in Cawthorne have come under more fire – this time from residents. At a parish council meeting the clerk, Frank Johnston, said a resident had sent a protest letter to the planning board. The parish council has made objections to the application submitted in June by Elizabeth Starling, of Croft House, Church Street. She wants to change the use of her home on weekends and bank holidays from residential to a ‘garden tea room’ to sell cold food and hot drinks. Parish council members objected on the grounds that it was not in keeping with the rest of the village and raised concerns over toilet, traffic and parking facilities as well as complying with food outlet legislation. A decision is expected to be made shortly.

On this day THE FIRST: 1909: The first race is held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, now one of the world’s famous racing competitions. THE LAST: 1927: The last Ford Model T rolled off the production line. Henry and Edsel Ford drove the 15 millionth off the assembly line at the Highland Park plant in Michigan.

Weather Wednesday: Sunny intervals, 23°C Thursday: Showers, 23°C.

AUNTIE DELIVERS BABY HARRISON BY LYNSEY BRADFORD A BARNSLEY woman gave birth to her son in the living room — with a little help from her sister-inlaw. Caroline Fowler, 28, went into labour at her home on Monument Drive, Brierley, on August 6 after being told by hospital staff the pains she was experiencing would go away. But they got worse and her son, Harrison Fraser Fowler, was delivered two-and-a-half hours later by his auntie, Becky Beecher, at 9.27pm, weighing 7.3lbs. Caroline, who went into labour a week early, said: “They just wouldn’t believe the baby was coming this quickly. “I went from having a few pains to having the baby on the living room floor!" Becky, 29, of Notton, had

come to look after Caroline’s three-year-old son George while husband Steve took her to hospital. But when Caroline was unable to get downstairs and into the car, Becky called for an ambulance. She said: “The paramedic on the telephone said ‘I’m going to tell you how to deliver the baby’. “I was panicking but Caroline was really calm, I just had to compose myself but it was a relief when they (the paramedics) walked in.” George had been playing in the kitchen and was the first to hold his baby brother. Caroline said the paramedics left after about an hour and added: “The three of us were shell-shocked. “He’s been so good ever since, he just slept.”

■ A grandma has become the first in her family to graduate. Rai Plews, 63, of Park Road, Worsbrough Bridge, got a BA Hons in Art and Design from the Barnsley campus of Huddersfield University. The former nurse spent 23 years at Barnsley Hospital before retir-

ing on health grounds. She enrolled on an art foundation course at Honeywell before starting the three-year degree. She said: “I had always wanted to do it but my mother didn’t have the money when I was young. “I had to work in a factory pairing stockings which I

hated. My life has always been hectic so I had never had the chance until now. I want people to think you are never too old for it.” Now Rai hopes to exhibit her work and sell some pieces to raise money for the homeless.

CAN YOU GIVE A KITTEN A HOME? BY EMMA SPENCER

SOS goes out: Louisa Guy, 15, with kittens Simon and Polly. Picture: Jamie Lorriman

THESE cute kittens are two of the 25 that have been dumped on the Barnsley RSPCA and need new homes. Over recent weeks the organisation has had an influx of kittens and mother cats and staff say they are coming in faster than they can get them out. Fosterer Julie Guy said: “I have nine kittens at my house and another five coming in. Another fosterer has a mum cat with five kittens and another a mum and four kittens. We are at bursting point.” In June the Chronicle reported an RSPCA appeal for new homes because it had 30 unwanted kittens because of the credit crunch. All the kittens were re-homed and the animal charity is appealing for anyone who could adopt a kitten or cat to contact Jackie Siddall on 07847374778.

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.

£500K TO TRANSFORM Call to promote composting YOUNG PEOPLE’S LIVES BY EMMA SPENCER KENDRAY and Worsbrough have been given half-a-million pounds to transform the lives of young people. The council, working with organisations within Kendray and Bank End at Worsbrough, made an application to the government’s Inspiring Communities scheme and found last week it had been successful. Barnsley is one of 15 areas across the country which will benefit from the fund. The council could only put forward one project from within the borough and believe the cash can help build on work which is being done in Kendray and Bank End. Targets include: figures for five or more A* to C GCSE results with

The project, lasting two years, will also have 11 to 14 year-olds creating

an e-portal about themselves and their achievements and experiences; on-line blogs and community forums; development of mentoring and coaching and motivating young people to continue learning and give them a head start in the employment market. Coun Karen Dyson said: “It is about giving young people opportunities and experiences they wouldn’t normally be able to access, building on what is already in Kendray and Bank End and saying there are better things out there. “£500,000 will go a long way to help families and young people achieve their ambitions and support local community groups in the work that has already begun. “As a local councillor I am thrilled that the work we are doing for our area has been recognised as a national example of good practice.”

EVERYONE in Barnsley with a garden should be doing their bit for the environment by making their own compost, a councillor has said. Bill Newman, cabinet member for development, said composting is a natural and environmentally-friendly process everyone should help with. There are plans to create large-scale ‘Windrow’ composting sites in Barnsley, some of which already have planning permission.

MP Michael Clapham has asked councillors to consider other options to mass composting, such as green power stations. He and other campaigners have raised safety fears over the Windrow sites, saying microscopic spores from the compost could cause health problems, but Coun Newman says he doesn’t feel it is anything to worry about. “The risks are minimal. These issues have been raised in parliament.”

TEENAGERS LEARN TO BUILD CONSTRUCTION SKILLS BY EMMA SPENCER TEENS who have dropped out of mainstream education are helping with one of the biggest rebuilding programmes in the borough. Barnsley Community Build (BCB), a charity set up in 2001 to help disaffected youngsters and get people back into work, has been given council

approval to continue work on the New Lodge estate. While post-war housing is being demolished to make way for the first new council housing in 60 years, other parts are being spruced up and the BCB trainees have put their new skills into practice. The work includes new boundary walls, driveways, fencing and wrought iron railings. The second phase is

about to get underway and the trainees plus new recruits will be called on again to help out the contractors. Steve Palmer, from BCB, said the kids spend time at a training centre before going on site and regardless of their level of skill there is something they can do on site. He said: “They work on their own, in a team, with other contractors and learn about health and

safety — it is as real as you are going to get working in the industry. We also work with sub- contractors and if they are looking for apprentices we will recruit, pay a wage subsidy for a period of time and pay for training so there are benefits for them working with us. “We also get the hard-toreach kids. If it wasn't for this you know where they will finish up because some have got serious issues.” It is hoped that BCB will soon be able to offer NVQ qualifications in construction. Councillor for New Lodge and Athersley Len Picken said: “It is a marvellous project, they are doing all sorts of work, keeping the place nice and tidy and doing jobs no-one else seems to want to do. “It is a learning curve for Transformation: BCB builders Adam Wright, Kyle Peace, James Coopland and Richard them but they are doing a fine job and it has made a Whitehead with one of the driveways and walls they built at Newlands Road, New Lodge. difference.”

HOSPITAL’S STEPS TO PREVENT SWINE FLU HOSPITAL visitors have been urged to help prevent the spread of swine flu after figures revealed 12 people have been admitted with flu-like symptoms. The trust is encouraging visitors to follow new hospital guidance when they go to see a friend or relative. Anyone with flu-like symptoms has been advised to stay away from the hospitals and children under 14 have been discouraged from visiting altogether. Usual hygiene practice should be followed rigorously including washing hands with anti-bacterial hand gel when entering and leaving wards. Chief nurse Sharon Linter said it was important these steps were followed in the battle to halt the spread of the infection. “We have extended the hospital’s existing visiting guidance to ensure that we’re doing all we can to help prevent the spread of swine flu” she said. “Patient safety and the delivery of high-quality care are our top priorities. We need people to act responsibly and think about the precautions they can take before coming to the hospital.” The hospital already recommends that patients have no more than two visitors at one time and anyone with coughs or colds should not visit to help prevent the spread of all infections. Recent figures show more than 50 people have been tested for swine flu in Barnsley and several people have been admitted to hospital with suspected swine flu since the end of July. Two patients have been confirmed as suffering from swine flu but all those admitted to hospital have since been discharged. There are 11 antiviral collection points where Tamiflu can be picked up, ideally by a flu-friend. “We’re asking that visitors do not bring children under the age of 14 as they are the most likely group to become infected,” said Sharon. “We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we believe this is a sensible precaution to take at this time.”

In the spotlight: Janet Woodward will be taking part in Anthony Gormley’s Trafalgar Square artwork.

JANET’S A WORK OF ART JANET Woodward does not normally like to be the centre of attention. But when she stands on top of the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, she hopes all eyes will be on her. The volunteer is hoping to spotlight the work carried out by Barnsley Hospice and generate a bit of money in the process. “I was dared to apply by a friend and couldn’t believe it when they told me I’d been successful,” she said. “I’m not sure exactly what I will do but I know I will talk about the hospice and the valuable work they do.

“Hopefully it will raise some money at the same time.” The space, usually occupied by kings and generals, was originally intended to be an equestrian statue but has been vacant for many years.

TEAM SHINDO KAI BRING BACK LOAD OF KARATE PRIZES BY ANDREW LODGE THE Barnsley-based Team Shindo Kai Karate squad took 55 competitors to the Yorkshire Open Karate Championships in Sheffield – and came home with a remarkable 48 medals, 19 of them gold. They proved to be the most successful association at the competition. The squad is made up of members from the Barnsley Karate Centre, Fight Unit, Anshin, Barnsley Shukokai and Nishi Kawa Karate Clubs. The competition started with the Kata events, where Thomas Wiggan, Katy Owen, Allan Owen and Sally Wenham got the squad off to a good start as they all medalled in their events. Then it was the start of the fighting sections. The first two events saw gold

being taken by Jimmy Lee Haywood and Joe Whitlock. The squad were now buzzing, and good result after good result kept rolling in. The coaches of John Tumman, Dave Holmes, Craig Burke, Tim Shirt, Graham Summerfield, Terry Everson and Rob Drake were rushed off their feet all day. The premier events of the day were the team events, Association against Association, and Shindo Kai won gold in four out of the seven sections. And in the sections they did not win they medalled either silver or bronze. To cap off a great day, Shindo Kai also won in the male and female adult teams category. All together it was a fantastic outing for the squad, students, coaches and of course the parents who support the kids so well. Results were: Individual Gold medallists: J

Whitlock, J Lee Haywood, L Poole, C Cooke, S Sheryn, G Eastwood, S Farleigh. Team Golds: Girls 10 to 12 years; Boys 13 to 5 years; Ladies 16 plus; Men 16 plus. Individual Silver medallists: T Wiggan, A Brailsford, C Sheryn, C Rigg. Team silver: Girls 13 to 15 years. B ronze Individuals m edallists: K Owen (twice), A Owen, B Owen, S Wenham, J Hincliff, M Jaques, E Simons, I Tordoff, D Joblin, S Hayes, C Rigg, A Spofford, O Saunders, J Gibb and D Hobson. Team Bronze: Boys 10–12 years A and B teams. ● On the weekend of September 5 and 6, the squad will be travelling up to Edinburgh for the British Championships. ● Anyone interested in taking up karate can call John Tumman on 07814078787 for further details.

Winners: Members of the Shindo Kai squad who turned in magnificent performances at the Yorkshire Open Karate Championships. (S)

Proud: Students and coaches of the successful Shindo Kai squad.

John wins big in bowling competition JOHN Richardson got his name on the Victory Cup – and duly pocketed £600 prize money. Around 200 spectators enjoyed the very good bowling on offer at West

Melton, the competition being sponsored by C Beaumont and son. The final was between Armthorpe BC teammates Richardson and Malcolm Tonge.

Tonge had last won the competition back in 1985 but Richardson played well all day and after being 14-4 down in the semi-final against Graham Hickey from Halifax,
