In limbo: Stuart Greenwood, landlord of the Lundwood Hotel. Picture: Brett Carr
The Lundwood Hotel, built in 1939, shut on September 8 after the council found the substance in poor condition during a routine inspection. Entry to the cellar was barred by the council to anyone not wearing protective clothing and breathing equipment. As a result, barrels in the cellar area could not be changed and pipes could not be cleaned. Landlord Stuart Greenwood, 50, said pub company Inns to be In, the owners, then took the decision to close the hotel. Mr Greenwood said: “The previous people who were in the pub before my company, had an asbestos report done about 18 months ago and it was just a case of trying to get hold of it.”

‘The previous people who were in the pub before my company, had an asbestos report done about 18 months ago’ He said Inns to be In had failed to find the report. A council inspector raised suspicions that there was asbestos in the cellar piping during the inspection. The pub company will now employ an independent asbestos inspector to carry out further examination of the pipes, but there is no indication of when that will be. Until tests are complete and any asbestos is cleared, the pub will remain closed. Mr Greenwood, who has been a landlord for 20 years, and has worked at the Lundwood Hotel for ten months, must now live on a basic
Barnsley NHS Stop Smoking Service Dan Sharp Stop Smoking Journey I stopped smoking two years ago now, in August 2008. I heard about the Stop Smoking Service through the adverts in the Chronicle, and my partner also works for the NHS, so she was encouraging me to stop smoking as well. I was smoking on average around 20 cigarettes per day, I didn’t really have any health problems, apart from the smokers cough on a morning. The Stop Smoking Service were really supportive and it was really nice to come into the service every week to have that honest, open conversation and with someone who never judged you for it. Ultimately they helped me to be true to
myself, which helped me achieve my goal. I would recommend the service to anyone who is trying to quit smoking. When I started to cut down on the cigarettes, I needed something to fill my evenings. I started running on an evening, short distances at first, but now I am running six miles, five to six times a week. I’ve done a number of challenges, including riding the Trans Pennine Trail, both Three Peaks challenges, half marathons and loads of walks in between. I am currently training for a 5 day, 192 mile Coast to Coast walk. Whilst I was giving up smoking, I had my peaks and troughs, just like everyone
does and it took me about four to five months to get rid off the ‘real’ cravings. I would really like to encourage people to give up smoking, and highlight that there is life after smoking and it’s imperrative to fill that gap with something. I will shortly be doing the Wainright, 192 mile Coast to Coast walk for Marie Curie Cancer and if you would like to sponsor me please visit www.justgiving.com/dannysharp CONTACT THE STOP SMOKING SERVICE ON 01226 737077 FOR AN APPOINTMENT AND BRING THIS VOUCHER IN WITH YOU.
wage indefinitely. He lives with his partner and three children at the pub, and is usually paid a 13 per cent share of pub takings, which on average would be £260 per week. But he is now being paid £200 less per week. He said: “The pub was doing ok, it was holding its own. “Financially we’re finding it really hard for the simple reason that I get a percentage of what goes in the till. “We’re in limbo, it’s a lot of money to be losing. “I don’t think there’s any asbestos in there. “I’ve had no breathing difficulties or anything.” A council spokesman said: “We all know about the hazard asbestos can present and it’s reassuring to see council enforcement officers taking robust enforcement action.” The council said all public houses are subject to programmed council inspections.
GROWING SUCCESS IN GRANDDAD’S GARDEN A HIGHAM granddad is cream of the crop with his grandchildren after sunflowers they planted in his garden reached a towering 12ft. Graham Gamwell, 64, of Higham Common Road, grows sunflowers every year with his three grandchildren, using dried-out seeds from the previous year. This year has seen the tallest crop yet for the Gamwells. Holly Gamwell, six, of Dodworth, grew a 12ft
sunflower, while her brothers – five-year-old twins Benjamin and Miles – saw their efforts reach 6ft. Mr Gamwell said: “We planted them at the beginning of May and we like to encourage the children to grow their own. “We grow them every year, and these have been our tallest. “Holly is really pleased. She looks really tiny next to it.” At about 3ft 6in, Holly is almost a third of the height of the flower.
Mr Gamwell said the flowers were given nothing but water and that the 12ft flower caught the sun in the mornings. “The grandchildren all have a novelty watering
can which they just fill when they come round. “I don’t know what our secret is. “We will dry the seeds from this year and then plant them next year.”

CALL FOR ‘BETTER ODDS’ AT SCHOOLS THE achievement gap between rich and poor children in Barnsley is unacceptable, according to Save the Children. Analysis of exam results carried out by the national charity shows among the poorest children, who receive free meals, two in five got five good GCSE passes. The number of better off achieving the same benchmark was more than three in five. Save the Children believes Barnsley schools need £3,000 per poor pupil – £18.1m in total. The claim was made as it launched its
‘better odds at school’ campaign last week. Sally Copley, the charity’s head of UK policy, said: “Having such an attainment gap is unacceptable in 2010. “To break this cycle of under achievement, children from the poorest homes must be given highquality additional support to ensure they can achieve their potential. To provide this, head teachers need more money.” The coalition government has indicated it will announce a ‘pupil premium’ to help poor children. It is not known how much the premium will be.
WHY CHOOSE DARTON HIGH SCHOOL? We are an improving school
Council assistant director Phil Lawson said: “We recognise the additional challenge placed on some families on lower incomes and, as such, work closely with schools to identify and provide additional resources for these children. “We support the principle of additional funding which is targeted towards the most vulnerable and needy children to enable them to achieve the best outcomes. “Save the Children has been a valued partner in this work and, as such, we welcome their initiative to secure further resources.”

James wins with rings A FORMER Barnsley College art student has won an award for his engagement and wedding ring designs. James Newman received the Platinum Guild International Design Award for his collection. James, who established his own jewellery label in 1998, said winning the award will give him recognition within the industry. James, 35, grew up in New Lodge, where his family still live. He met his partner Claire at Barnsley College and they now work together in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. James, who designed Claire’s engagement ring, says he has all sorts of requests. “It is a personal thing and people often want very different things. One man wanted a ring designed like a humming bird.”

WHY 5KM IS A MARATHON Peter Wilkinson was 21 when he was diagnosed with a rare cancerous tumour that only affects ten people a year over the age of three. He is now in remission
but finds it difficult to walk as he has a curvature of the spine and suffers from a painful nerve condition. “Doing 5km will be like doing my own personal marathon as it is very painful to walk short distances and I have bursts of fatigue,” said Peter, 24, of Old Town. “I was last across the finishing line last year but it was a huge personal

position as me.” Arthritis Care, Barnsley and District branch, will hold its first meeting on Wednesday October 6 at 6.30pm at the Core, County Way. It is open to people from anywhere in the area. It will be on the first Wednesday of each month, and will be a mixture of ‘fun events, talks by experts, entertainment, and a chance to get together and share experiences’. Judith added: “We want to make sure people know it isn’t just for the elderly. Arthritis affects all ages and we want a variety of people to come along.”
A MAJOR employer has announced interim profits for the year. Barnsley steel and engineering specialists Billington Holdings, which has a site in Wombwell, recorded profits of £800,000 in the six months up to June 30, down 57 per cent on last year. Chief executive Steve Fareham said the result was broadly in line with expectations given tough economic conditions for the construction industry. The company designs, creates and erects structural steelworks for buildings across the country and typically takes on two apprentices a year at its Wombwell site. Steve added: “Not everyone is academic, and there has to be a viable alternative for those who aren’t. “Skilled apprenticeship programmes are a great way of acquiring hands-on experience whilst learning a craft, which will hopefully result in them having a career for life.”
TWO women with arthritis are starting a support group for people of all ages. Judith Oxley, 44, of Monk Bretton, and Louise Short, 36, of Royston, both say they would have found it very helpful if there had been a similar group when they were diagnosed. Judith said: “It really is awful when you’re first diagnosed, because your friends and family are there for you but they don’t know what it’s like.” Louise said: “It would have been really great for me if there’d been something like this, somewhere to meet and talk to people in the same

MERSON IN TALKS WITH CLUB FORMER England and Arsenal footballer Paul Merson appeared at Gawber Road WMC. The Sky Sports pundit spoke about his career highs and lows, which include drug, alcohol and gambling addictions, and took questions from members of the audience. Club steward Darren Wood said this was the third ‘gentlemen’s
evening’ he had arranged. Previously, the club has seen the likes of Manchester United legend Norman Whiteside and World Cup hero Nobby Styles performing to audiences of about 200. Darren said: “It’s not as hard to get in touch with the stars as people think and it’s about giving back to the working class society.
“People who come here are working class and it’s nice for people to come in casual dress and not pay through the roof.” The event raised money for the charity Headway, which supports people with brain injuries, after customer Ian Gibbs, of Pogmoor, suffered a brain injury about 18 months ago.

Council’s funding for homes A SUCCESSFUL funding application means 51 more low cost homes will be built in Barnsley. The council has received £2.74m from the government and is now applying for planning permission. It is hoped the homes will be built on Croft Avenue in Royston, St Edwin’s Croft in Athersley
South, Chapel Lane in Penistone, Oak Close in Hoyland and East Thurnscoe in the Dearne. Subject to planning permission, building work should have started on all sites by March. This would bring the total number of affordable homes built or refurbished in the borough to 1,037 in
the 2008 to 2011 period. This equals an £86.1m investment. Council spokesman Steve Jagger said: “This is excellent news for Barnsley. “At a time when all the government cuts are being announced, my team has worked really hard to make sure as much of the funding available as possible is allocated to Barnsley. “It will provide more affordable homes for local people.” Coun Bill Newman said: “Barnsley will continue to work hard through its strategic housing team and take every opportunity to obtain affordable homes for Barnsley residents. This in itself will not solve the housing problem but it will help toward reducing the waiting list for homes.”

Lucky day: Dave Morahan and his nephew Owen Keane, 12, before the match against Leeds United.

Dearne, operates an outdoor activity business in the town of Manali in the Himachal Pradesh area of India. The 31-year-old moved to the mountain range due to his passion for rock-climbing. He has travelled around the Himalayas, living and sleeping in caves and avoiding the bears which also roam the mountains. He now lives in a house 6,000ft above sea level – and organises activities such as rock-climbing and rafting for tourists. Morahan is able to return once a year and always plans his visit around the Reds. He was thrilled with his
choice of game. ‘It was a cracking result,” he said. “I was a bit worried in the first 20 minutes but after that I was very impressed.” Since he moved to the mountains, Morahan has returned to see Barnsley win the 2006 League One play-off final and watched the loss to Cardiff in the FA Cup semi-final. He always keeps up to date with Reds and is even building up a small fan club in Manali. “I have given the local lads a couple of Barnsley scarves so they are getting quite into it. “Hopefully one day I can bring them here in person.”
