MP urges government to keep Coalfields Regeneration Trust BARNSLEY MP Eric Illsley urged the government to expand a scheme that funds regeneration in former coalfield areas. A parliamentary debate was held to discuss a report written by former Penistone MP Michael Clapham into the Coalfields Regeneration Trust. Last week Mr Illsley told the House of Commons that Barnsley had lost 19,000 jobs when the pits were closed. They had not been replaced and meant boroughs like Barnsley were heavily reliant on public sector employment and would be worst-affected by public service cuts. “The impact will be felt far more in coal-
field communities than in other areas. “It is essential that the Coalfields Regeneration Trust programme, small though it is, be retained and, if possible, expanded.” Minister Andrew Stunnell said support for areas like Barnsley was ‘crucial’ and regeneration projects would be supported. He added: “Difficult choices still need to be made about the way ahead. “We will consider the case for the continuation of dedicated funding for coalfield areas in light of the Clapham report, and we intend to make an announcement on that in the next month.”

RUNNER BACK ON TRACK AFTER SEVEN YEARS A FORMER international athlete has returned to competitive action after seven years of injury hell – and believes she could compete at the 2012 Olympics. Jilly Ingman, 32, was comfortably the quickest female when she ran the South Yorkshire League 5km cross country at Cannon Hall. Jilly, who represented Great Britain at international events, is making a comeback after seven years. Her career was disrupted because she suffered a series of five stress fractures. She has only been back in training since August and said she was thrilled to be back racing. “I was pleased to win and to win comfortably is always good. I’m really glad to be back running and competing. “I have a number of unfulfilled ambitions so I’m going to see where it takes me. I am still ambitious.” Jilly, of Buckingham Way, Royston, was first injured aged 25 and said her aim was to get through a full season without
‘I have a number of unfulfilled ambitions so I’m going to see where it takes me’ injury – but she has bigger goals. “The big championships are after Christmas. “It depends how things go and I probably can’t compete internationally this winter because at the moment I can’t be good enough but it’s possible if I continue to progress.” Self-employed personal trainer Jilly said age was not as big a factor in long distance running as in some disciplines and said the London Olympics were a possibility for her. “It’s possible if I can continue to progress but I have a heck of a long way to go. What’s driving me at the moment are personal unfulfilled ambitions because I never met my potential.” Jilly’s winning time on Sunday was 16m 34s, almost a minute ahead of her nearest competitor. She will run the Barnsley 10km road race on November 14.
Top run: Jilly Ingman.

THE senior presiding judge for England and Wales said he ‘cannot back’ the closure of Barnsley County Court. The government has proposed closing more than 150 courts, including the county court, and asked Lord Justice Goldring to consider the proposals. He agreed with many of the proposed closures but Barnsley was one of 16 he said should be saved. He said: “I have sought to identify where closure will result in genuine difficulties for court users while at the same time taking a pragmatic view, based on the available information, about the level of court provision which is required in the 21st century.” A three-month consultation on the proposals ended last month and the government will soon publish its summary of the findings and what it plans to do. The proposal is to move the court’s workload to Sheffield. The council and all the local MPs submitted objections to the plan.

safe side motorists are advised to change tyres that are below 3mm in preparation for winter. G Fluids — Motorists should regularly check their vehicle fluid levels including oil and brake fluid. The levels of these fluids must be maintained for proper functioning of the car. In winter coolant should be topped up as necessary with a combination of water and antifreeze solution. In bad weather it’s also important to monitor windscreen wash. Freeze-resistant washer fluid is needed for winter as water and standard washer fluid will freeze in cold temperatures.

Dark evenings, wet weather and snow can make driving during the colder months very difficult. But a little forward planning can save time, money and most importantly lives. Regularly maintaining your vehicle through servicing will ensure problems are picked up and in some cases prevented from occurring in the first place. Many motorists skip services to save money but prevention is often cheaper than the cure. A pre-winter service gives drivers peace of mind that their vehicle is ready to face the wintery conditions
and is essential for those who drive long distances. A qualified mechanic at a reputable garage will be able to check for problems with parts such as the battery, belts, brakes and exhaust system that a driver might not necessarily spot. This will ensure your car is both mechanically and electrically fit before you hit the road. That said, there are some simple checks drivers can do at home to keep their vehicles safe in the snow and ice. These include: G Tyres — To avoid skidding in bad weather check tyre pressure and tread depth. Set the tyre pressure to your specific car manufacturer’s recommendation. The legal tread depth for tyres is 1.6mm but to be on the

Some useful driving tips Stopping distances are ten times longer in ice and snow, so it’s important to drive carefully using all of the car’s controls — accelerator, brakes, clutch and steering — as gently as possible. Select second gear when pulling away, easing your foot off the clutch gently to avoid a wheel-spin. Try to maintain a constant speed and stay in as high a gear as possible. To avoid having to change gear while climbing a hill, choose the most suitable gear in advance. Always apply your brakes gently. Release them and de-clutch if the car skids. Only drive as fast as conditions allow. Don’t try to overtake.
Easy does it: Stopping distance are ten times longer in snow and ice.
