Tax base ‘up’ by 300
‘SCRAP 24-HOUR DRINKING LAWS’ BY MIKE COTTON A publican says the government should scrap 24-hour drinking and return to the licensing laws of old. Paul McNicholas, manager at Durty O’Dwyers and Pubwatch chairman, says 24-hour boozing has damaged the atmosphere in town and led to trouble at different times of the day. He said: “You used to know there’d be the odd bit of bother at chucking out time. But now, with
some bars and clubs open until 6am, we’re finding we’re getting trouble on Sunday lunch time. These young ones who’ve been out until six are coming out again, maybe to watch a football match, and all they’re doing is topping themselves up.” He said a lot of people, especially youngsters, are filling up at home on cheap alcohol from supermarkets, and then getting taxis into town much later, often after midnight. “It has that ripple effect. We’re seeing it on

3 THE number of taxable properties across the borough has risen by about 300 in a year, according to a council report. Town hall accountants use the estimate to set the ‘tax base’ that will be used to calculate council tax for the next financial year. The biggest increase is in ‘Barnsley’ where there are 90 new homes. There are 29 in the Dearne, 28 in Darton and 14 in Penistone.

ble, but the new licensing laws had gone ‘too far’ to be reversed. He said: “There’s too many pubs closing as it is. If we reversed it, it’d put even more out of business. There needs to be a consensus about what’s a reasonable hour to close.”

PIECE OF CAKE
valentine’s special NOW IS THE TIME TO LET YOUR FEELINGS BE KNOWN SOME view Valentine’s Day as a commercial money-maker aimed at soppy couples who buy each other pointless gifts. But for others February 14 is the one day of the year when lovers can express their true feelings for one another. Valentine’s however, is not exclusively for loved-up couples. It also provides the perfect opportunity for secret admirers to declare their feelings — those who are brave will reveal their identity within a card, while others will sign off with
‘from your Valentine’ or a simple question mark, leaving the recipient guessing. Traditionally love notes were exchanged between couples on February 14 but over time mass produced cards have taken over with Valentine’s Day now the second most popular time of year to send cards after Christmas. Valentine’s is also the busiest time of year for florists, who are inundated with requests for red, long stem roses — a symbol of love and affection — whether it be one or a dozen.

BY KATE PICKLES WHAT’S yellow, pink and 70ft long... the world’s biggest Battenburg cake. Staff at Manor Bakeries in Carlton set a world record when they made the giant fancy. The cake, which measured 21.5m, took about ten minutes and 100 staff to make. Supply chain manager Mike Adamson said they decided to make the longest Battenburg as no record existed for the feat. “There was already a record for a giant Swiss roll and it was pretty long so we avoided that one,” he said. “We thought about the other things we make and decided to do it with the Battenburg. “We’re hoping it will raise £5,000 for Cancer Research.” Measurements will be sent Record breakers: Manor Bakeries staff help construct their world record- off for verification before it can attempting Battenburg cake.

Wishes to congratulate Keira Reay on her perfect
gifts include chocolate, perfume and lingerie, but for those who prefer to step away from tradition there are options such as football tickets, gig tickets or hair and beauty vouchers, which will be greatly received. Jewellery is another gift associated with Valentine’s, but to put a twist on tradition some couples choose to get their gifts engraved with a special message, significant date or even with a cute pet name they have for their partner. And for those who want to go all out, there is always the option of a romantic weekend break. Whether it be a trip to the countryside or a break in the romance capital of the world — Paris, it’s a special gift that will be remembered for years to come. Some couples however, prefer to keep things simple on Valentine’s Day with a romantic meal out at a special restaurant, or even a romantic meal in. To make the occasion more special light some candles, put on some chilled out music and sprinkle some rose petals around the house. And a meal in does not necessarily mean having to produce a three-course culinary masterpiece. Breakfast in bed or snuggling up together on the sofa with your favourite foods while watching a romantic film can be equally thoughtful.

Stuntman riding high BY KATE PICKLES A TEENAGE stuntman has set a new world record for the longest bicycle wheelie after riding more than eight miles on one wheel. Aaron Stannage, 14, of Tun Lane, South Hiendley, completed 90 laps of the John Charles stadium in Leeds. It took the Hemsworth High pupil an hour to complete the feat which should ensure him a place in the Guinness Book of Records after verification. “He was absolutely buzzing,” said dad and fellow stuntman Mark. “It went really well and he managed 8.14 miles

FIGHTING TO BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS BY EMMA SPENCER AN ASIAN fireman is backing a new effort to recruit more fire-fighters from ethnic minority backgrounds. Tasab Nabi lives at Barugh Green and supports the campaign by South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service which is also hoping to sign up more female fire-fighters.
He said: “Some British Asian families might not consider firefighting as a career as it is not traditionally associated with being an academic job, but there are plenty of opportunities for attaining training and qualifications along the way. “I am really into fitness so in that respect the job is ideal. But while you do need to be physically fit,
the tests and selection process are not beyond reach.” Mark Shaw, SYFR director of service development, added: “Perceptions of the fire service as being a white male dominated organisation are changing. “We have already come a long way but at the same time accept that we still have a way to go before we become truly
representative of the communities which we serve.” ● Awareness sessions and recruitment days are being held throughout this month and February.
Challenge: Fireman Tasab Nabi. (S)

Kicking the smoking habit needn’t lead to weight gain
Is your New Year’s resolution to stop smoking without gaining weight or having to put your weight loss on hold?, the Barnsley Stop Smoking Service and Slimming World can help you stop and slim... Every year around one million of the UK’s 12 million smokers try to quit. Research also shows
that of the remaining 11 million smokers around 75% would like to kick the habit. But the thought of gaining weight while giving up smoking prevents many from stopping. However, former smokers in South Yorkshire have proved it’s possible to quit without gaining any weight – and even slim at the same time. In August 2008 Slimming World teamed up with Barnsley PCT’s NHS Stop Smoking Service. Through the scheme people who want to stop smoking are offered vouchers for nicotine replacement therapy as well as for their nearest Slimming World group or passes to a local gym for every week they stay smoke free up to 12 weeks. So far 64 people have signed up for the scheme and 88% of the people who have received a voucher to attend any of the 34 Slimming World groups in the Barnsley district have successfully quit smoking. On average they lost 3lbs each. Paul Naylor joined Ann’s Slimming World group in Barnsley at the East Dene Club on Doncaster Road when he decided to stop smoking in October. When he first joined, his aim was not to gain any
weight. But Paul has not only quit smoking, he’s gone on to lose 1 stone in a matter of weeks and is still losing. “I have tried to quit smoking a few times and the fantastic support from my Slimming World Group and the Barnsley Stop Smoking Service has been invaluable. I know that I couldn’t have done it without them and I urge anyone that wants to stop smoking this New Year whilst maintaining or losing weight to take up the free and supportive service that is available.” Ann Gath, local Slimming World consultant who runs some of the top groups in South Yorkshire says the staggering success of the campaign comes as no surprise to Slimming World. “The emphasis of this scheme is not on weight loss, but on preventing weight gain as people stop smoking. For anyone concerned about weight gain, a good place to start is by finding a supportive network and a healthy eating plan which you can follow while you quit, both of which a Slimming World group provides. “It’s also good to be aware of the common factors
which may lead to weight gain and to consider the ways you can counter them. At Slimming World we encourage members to fill up on plenty of healthy everyday foods like fat-free yogurts, fruit and vegetables, lean meat, fish, eggs and complex carbohydrates. That allows anyone who is quitting smoking and has cravings to choose a healthy snack rather than crisps, sweets, chocolate or biscuits. Research also shows that going for a short walk when overcome by a craving can help. At Slimming World we encourage members to build activity like going for a regular walk into their daily routine.” For more information on Barnsley NHS Stop Smoking Service contact 01226 737077 appointments and drop in available.

CHILDREN’S book illustrator Brian Wildsmith once worked on a story about a python swallowing guests at a birthday party. He says he got around this potentially gruesome subject by using Yorkshire humour. Some of that humour is likely to be on display in the north-east at an exhibition of his work to mark his 80th birthday. Brian, who lives in a French hill village with views of the Mediterranean and which is about 45 minutes from the Italian border, last visited Barnsley seven or eight years ago. He still thinks of home when he is abroad. “I only feel at home in Yorkshire. “I miss it and its people’s marvellous sense of humour. “The Yorkshire landscape is beautiful. “Mind you, it was covered by smoke and filth from heavy industry when I was growing up.” He was raised in Springfield Road, Hoyland Common, attended St Helen’s Roman Catholic School and Barnsley College of Art. The first drawings he was paid for depicted miners and were published in the Barnsley Chronicle in 1948
Yorkshireman: Brian Wildsmith. when he was a student. After attending Slade School of Art, London, and a stint teaching, he was asked by Oxford University Press to do book covers and illustrations. His best known children’s book, ABC, was published in 1962 and won the Kate Greenaway Medal.
His books have sold 20 million in 20 countries and the exhibition will feature many of his best known illustrations. ● The show at the Book Den at Seven Stories (the Centre for Children’s Books), Newcastle-upon-Tyne runs from April 1 to July 10.

YORKSHIRE Building Society says it has had an expression of interest in the the former head offices of the Barnsley Building Society. The premises were vacated last
year following the takeover by the Yorkshire. All branches of the Barnsley society remained open but the head office, opposite the town hall, was no longer required and all staff were either moved to the
Yorkshire’s head office in Bradford or made redundant. A spokesman said: “It’s a great building, in a great location, so it’s no surprise there’s already been some interest.”

LEAFLETS A5 1000 £15 5000 £40 A4 1000 £20 5000 £60
Simple artwork included BUSINESS STATIONERY WEDDING STATIONERY PIGLET PRINTERS
weather conditions to participate in the first Team Manvers off-road Duathlon of 2010, at the Manvers waterfront Boat Club. On the morning of the event the course had to be re-routed due to the hazardous conditions underfoot. The new route consisted of a 2.6 mile run, 5.2 mile bike ride and finished with a 1.3 mile run, all of which were made more demanding than normal. Andrew Hardman won the race in a time of 58.39
with Michael Goulding second in 59.42. Local fireman Adam Bebb completed the course in a time of 1.06.30 and the
final duathletes came home in 1.10.50. World Champion mountain-biker Steve Peat was watching the event and
afterwards paid tribute to the courage shown by all who participated in the event on a challenging day.
