Barnsley Stop Smoking Service 10th Anniversary ‘I don’t smoke’…three increasingly satisfying words that I am able to say when offered a cig’. I’ve now been smoke free for 150 days at the time of writing (If counting the days seems a little nerdy-read on). I decided that I must quit smoking for both health and financial reasons (to be honest more for financial reasons than health….how misguided is that?).
I could never fool myself into thinking that I have the greatest will power in the world and that stopping would just be a matter saying No…I’ve been trying that for many years without success.
Passing the Stop smoking service in Barnsley one day I thought ‘what have I got to lose, I’ll see what they’ve got to offer’ This has got to be one best off the cuff decisions I’ve made in a long while. The initial consultation was friendly, informative, and as the initial weekly meetings continued, very supportive. I wont pretend that it has been easy all the way; I still have cravings for a cig every now and again, usually after a drink/meal. Ex smokers tell me that 20 years later they still feel the occasional urge for a cig’. If, in twenty years time, I can say ‘I still feel like a cig every now and again’…but shrug it off I’ll be a happy (and richer) man.
Back to my earlier point of counting the days. I believe if you want to stop smoking and need to see something tangible for doing so, make a note of how much you’re saving (try put that money away) I have a spread sheet on my desktop which each day adds up how much I’ve saved. The fact that 150 days of stopping smoking has put almost £1100 into a special savings account is fantastic (and given us an extra winter holiday this year) If you really want to stop and feel you can’t do it alone pay a visit to the Stop Smoking Service…it could change your life in so many ways.

STAFF at Barnsley Digital Media Centre took a 15,000-feet plunge for charity. The team reached speeds of 120mph during the tandem skydive at Hibaldstow Airfield in North Lincolnshire. The eight participants raised £1,300 for Leukaemia Care from the jump, a summer barbecue and strawberry tea afternoon at the Digital Media Centre on County Way. Sales and marketing manager Melissa Goodrich said everyone enjoyed the jump. “No-one had done anything like this before and most people were very nervous but on the day the staff at the skydive centre put everyone at ease,” she said. “It was one of the most exhilarating and memorable things I have ever done and I would recommend it to everyone.”
BUMPER YEAR FOR TOWN AS SHOPPERS DEFY THE CRUNCH BY ADAM CIVICO SHOPPERS in Barnsley have defied the recession – by pouring into the town centre in record numbers. Town and city centres across the UK have had a year to forget as careful Brits have been watching their pennies. But it has been a bumper year in Barnsley with 60,000 more shoppers doing their business in town. Mark Broadhead, Mall Alhambra manager, said it had been a welcome surprise. “It has been a good year and is continuing to be a good year. The last five months have been stronger than last year. “When you look at the retail mix in Barnsley, the likes of Wilkinson’s, Iceland and Primark were always strong but a lot more people are coming to those outlets.” And in a trend that bucks that, which has been repeated nationally stores have been moving in to the Mall. “We’ve had more store openings than closures,” said Mark.
“We got Iceland, Internationale, Toymaster and the relocation of Madhouse. There are not many shopping centres that can say that. “One of the bigger stores is telling me they are 20 per cent up on trade.” Electronic sensors track the number of people passing through the Mall. They show 60,000 more have been through this year – 29,000 of them on Sundays. “The Sunday trade has grown and more retailers are opening on Sunday,” said Mark. Town centre manager, Garreth Bruff, said the Mall figures were replicated across town. “They are positive for the wider town centre. We know the Mall is one of the main gateways into the town centre. “Barnsley has been able to hold its own because we can offer the local market, key services and good quality. People will appreciate quality and value in this economic situation – they can find that in Barnsley.”
One-off cultural events staged in the town centre had also helped attract more people, he added. “They are people who we think will return to do their shopping or visit again.” The next big event is the Christmas lights switch-on on November 18, which launches a series of seasonal activities in town. G National research has shown almost half of shoppers have started Christmas shopping – even though it’s 91 days away. Mr Broadhead said it seemed Barnsley shoppers were following that trend. “Anecdotally, ‘footfall’ for the first part of September has been stronger than last year. Wilkinson’s have got a Christmas collection in, Primark have Christmas stuff so people are getting geared up. “There are three pay days left until Christmas and people are wanting to spread the cost. I think people are starting early.”
Superschool makes its mark on the landscape ARTISTS’ impressions are quickly becoming reality as the steel frames of Barnsley’s new schools take shape. Carlton Advanced Learning Centre, which replaces Royston and Edward Sheerien Schools, is the most advanced of the five projects already started. Tall white boarding along Royston Lane hides the work, but the huge steel frame can already been seen from vantage points down Cronkhill Lane. The shape of the building can already be seen. The stepped concrete which will form lecture theatre type seating is already in place. It should be finished by the end of next year. Darton, Dearne, Kirk Balk and Penistone ALCs are also all under construction. Barnsley is the only town in the country where ‘Building Schools for the Future’ funding is being used to replace every single secondary school. Coun Linda Burgess, cabinet

Sweet Rebellion split. She said: “After Sweet Rebellion I found it hard to say that is it; singing is my passion and what I have always done. “I was quite nervous but it was exciting. I took 43 supporters who made so much noise and brought the house down. I wasn’t sure I would make it through because there were a lot of good people there doing original music and playing guitar but I got a really good response from the audience. I am excited about the finals and getting all my supporters together.” Libbi hopes to perform a song she is going to co-write and will do the choreography herself.

Safety is the word for pals THREE girls from Kexborough saw their hard work ‘come to a head’ when they presented kids at the primary school with road safety baseball caps. The girls have worked to make the estate a safer place with a road safety project as part of a Lifestyle programme run by the police. Megan Hines, along with friends Katie Burgin-Brown and Hayley Tissington, all 12, came up with the idea of the hi-vis caps and also lobbied the council for a speed indicator device outside Kexborough primary.
Megan, of Uplands Avenue, said the thinking behind the brightly coloured caps is so youngsters are easier to spot on dark nights. “Also we’re making drivers more aware of their speed driving through the estate because of a speed indicator device now outside the primary school,” said Megan. The trio met with Couns Alice Cave, Sharon Howard, Linda Burgess and PCSO Jo Winn who were instrumental in helping them achieve their road safety goals

‘WE WON’T BE DUMPED ON AGAIN’ BY EMMA SPENCER DEARNE residents are having a second protest meeting emphasising their objections to plans to put a waste transfer site near their homes. Before the meeting today, the tenstrong committee will hand out leaflets in Bolton, Goldthorpe, Thurnscoe, Highgate, Swinton, Barnburgh, Mexborough and Adwick. The residents believe all these places will be adversely affected by the waste site which will deal with rubbish from Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster. Susan Sharpe, a member of the committee, said they are angry about the lack of information being given out. There are a number of locations being considered by the BDR Partnership but it is thought the preferred site could be in Manvers. And even though the method of dealing with waste hasn’t been decided there is fear it could be a process of incineration. Susan said: “People are getting very angry about it. The councils won’t tell us
what is going on, they are treating us like fools. “We are not prepared to be dumped on again. People are frightened, there’s a lot of fear because we don’t know what it is going to be.” Coun Sharron Brook said she understands residents’ concerns but added nothing much could be done until more decisions had been made. “I have to stand with the residents; I have prepared material for them and I understand how they feel, they are frightened and without knowledge they will be. “But the earliest we will know anything is January. There are lots of decisions to be made – the bidder, the site and what will go on it.” Coun Brook added that the earliest any scheme would go ahead is 2014. The government has set councils targets to reduce the amount of waste they produce and the BDR has been awarded £77.4m to tackle the problem. I The meeting is at The Angel Pub, Bolton, at 7.30pm.
Plans to replace surgery approved A PROPOSAL to demolish Great Houghton Surgery to construct a Primary Health Care medical centre has been approved by the council. The new facility, on Oak Haven Avenue, off High Street, will replace existing services, providing GP clinical and NHS primary care administration facilities.
The new building will be larger than the existing one and provide more car parking space and the provision of mobility parking. The development is related to the NHS LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) a central government funded scheme to revitalise health centres.

GREER EMPOWERS BARNSLEY WOMEN BY KATIA HARSTON A WITTY polemic about hate mail was the opening gambit offered up to the audience by Germaine Greer for an evening dubbed 40 years of feminism and fun. Having the audience laughing within minutes about a recent letter she received that could have been written four decades ago did the trick with the audience. From that point on it was clear Ms Greer (and I’m sure she would protest at being referred to as ‘Ms’) had set her stall out for the night, keeping the evening light and free from any heavy academe. Since storming into the public consciousness in 1970 with her first book, The Female Eunuch, the candid professor has made her mark on the world with her musings, writings and rants about the role of women in society. Some things never change about Greer. One of those things is her pertinent, wry caustic sense of feminist humour, something which rescued the night from the danger of being a dreary hark back to glory days. The narrative of the night was loosely but effectively kept
together by Greer touching on a thread of topical issues, something an audience wants from such a prolific public persona. She started with the gender row surrounding athlete Caster Semenya, how women accept their XX chromosome destiny and then superfluously tied it in with the burden of having a womb, telling the audience: “It has been a problem for us from day one.” More vitriol was to come, with scathing attacks on the nation’s leading newspapers and how they propagate the notion that men know what women want and need, more so than women do themselves. She moved effortlessly from one subject to another, the war in Afghanistan, marriage, abortion, rape, family breakdowns and the future of feminism – never once failing to get a laugh out of what are otherwise fairly grim topics. Women at work and motherhood were the big stings in her tail. But like so much she spoke about, no matter what progress has been made since her glory days, she’s still not happy. “There is a schizophrenia in the way we deal with women. I am constantly told how feminists have destroyed the family, but hang on a minute.
“If it survived the oppression and suppression of women then it was never meant to be and the ‘family’ was rotten to the core. “When I wrote The Female Eunuch, women were already at work, people think I sent them out to work but they were already at work because men no longer earned a family wage. They did not make enough money to service family debt. That’s where women stepped in. “Women tell me now, I can handle the kids, I can handle the poverty, the welfare system, but I can’t handle him because he erodes my self-esteem, because he humiliates me, because everything is my fault.” It’s sometimes difficult to pin Greer’s intentions down when she speaks to the great public. You think she is leading you down one path with an almost certain conclusion and then suddenly you find yourself being spun around in the dark with no idea which way to turn. But people seem to like that about her. However, I did feel slightly sorry for the spattering of gentlemen in the audience who were clearly only there at the insistence of their wives and girlfriends.

NHS vows to cut carbon emissions
NHS Barnsley has vowed to cut carbon emissions by 10 per cent by 2015. The trust has already reached a 15 per cent reduction target on primary energy consumption and has now signed up to the Yorkshire and Humber Carbon Reduction Accord. Energy efficiency in building construction, refurbishment and good housekeeping measures have all helped bring down CO2 emissions. A new system has been installed at the mental health unit based at Kendray Hospital which uses heat from the ground to keep the building warm. Advertiser’s Announcement
Meheena Hussain has just graduated from the University Campus Barnsley’s Journalism and Media Production degree. She tells us, ‘I chose the University Campus Barnsley because I really liked the look of the course and also when I came to an Open Day I really liked the atmosphere. I was also amazed by the facilities, like the TV and Radio studios. In the future, I hope to work in the media. I feel that the course will help me achieve this because it didn’t just focus on specific areas such as print or radio but was really broad and has given me more choice for jobs in future. My two years of being a student went by so fast. I still remember my first day. It has been amazing and I have learnt a lot of new things. I have also made new friends and good memories. The staff and lecturers at the Campus are really nice and friendly which is great if you get stuck with anything and need to ask for help or advice. People say that going to university can be the best part of your life and in my case I think it might be true.’

LIFT CENTRE GIVEN THE GO-AHEAD BY KATIA HARSTON CONTROVERSIAL plans to build a community health centre in Darton have been approved by the council despite objections by residents. Four Huddersfield Road homeowners stormed out of a planning board meeting shouting: ‘Well that’s just ruined our lives forever.’ They were objecting to plans submitted by Barnsley Community Solutions (BCS) to demolish the Darton council offices and replace the building with the centre. An agent speaking on behalf of the applicant said the site is very isolated and the existing building is not the most efficient use of the site. “It is not being served to meet the needs of the community,” she said. “The new building will bring well designed, sustainable buildings that meet the needs of the 21st century.” The health centre will house a number of community and council services including adult social services, physiotherapy, offices for district nurses and a children’s centre. “It must be emphasised the centre will not provide any facility for drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment,” added the agent. “There has also been some concerns with local residents in relation to highways. “The existing site is very difficult to access and the majority of visitors park on surrounding streets. “The proposal seeks to improve this situation. It will result in less on-street parking and should improve highway safety in and around the street.” Plans show 30 spaces will be created, 14 for staff and 14 for visitors, plus two disabled spaces, which will be accessed via a cul-de-sac off Huddersfield Road. Barnsley Community Solutions said the scheme provides an opportunity to regenerate the existing site, replace a building with little architectural merit and bring a number of positive benefits to the local community.
‘The existing site is very difficult to access and the majority of visitors park on surrounding streets’ Not everyone agreed, especially those people living next to the site. Jeannette Renshaw spoke on behalf of 31 Huddersfield Road residents objecting to the plans. She told the board the proposed building does not fit in with the surrounding area as the design is too modern and believes the environmental impact will be immense, adding: “At the moment you walk past and see wildlife, birds and even bats.” Other concerns raised included operating hours, access to the building and parking. “Putting the access of the new building on the cul-de-sac is not acceptable, it was not constructed for two-way traffic. “Access for refuse trucks will be even worse than at present and it does not matter what facilities are provided people will still park there. “Road safety is paramount as we have lots of young children and people that need disabled access.” Coun Harry Spence, of the Darton East ward, said a site visit proved there is no off-street parking in that area. He said: “There are 30 spaces, the planning application states there are 33 employees at this centre so where are you going to have patients and visitors parking?” A planning officer told the board it had maximised the parking on-site which did meet standards but confirmed there would not be a residents’ parking scheme. However, he added that a condition of the approval will be included for screening.

Kevin Brennan, Minister for Further Education, Skills, Apprenticeships and Consumer Affairs, was at Barnsley College on Thursday to perform the sod cutting ceremony marking the start of building work. Twelve nationwide applications had to be bailed out by the government following a cock-up by the Learning Skills Council (LSC) which miscalculated its budget. Barnsley’s is the only project to have started. He said: “It had been badly handled, colleges had made plans that weren’t affordable. We independently assessed the projects that were being planned and pursued them according to the resources we had available.
“Barnsley came out on top in things like need for the building, depravation in the area and a project that was ready to go. I know the three MPs and they can be a pain when they get their teeth into something and never let it go, but this is a good day for the borough.” The Old Mill Lane site had been demolished before funding problems came to light and it was first feared it may be left as a pile of rubble. However following a campaign by the MPs, Eric Illsley, Jeff Ennis and Mick Clapham and crisis talks with PM Gordon Brown the project was re-organised at a cost of £45m. The building will be completed in 2011 and landscaping work will take a further year. Mr Illsley said: “It is a great relief to be here today after all that has happened since the proj-
ect was suspended. At every stage the LSC were saying reduce the bid and we were getting more worried the project would end up nothing like the one that had been approved.” Council leader Steve Houghton said the new college would bring more than educational benefits. He added: “It is a fantastic day for the town and huge investment in education. It will also create a lot of jobs in the construction industry that will go to Barnsley people. “When we started Remaking Barnsley there hadn’t been a crane in the town centre for something like 30 years. If people have confidence to come here and develop then people inside the town should have confidence as well.”
