MOTHER AND SON ARE GLASS ACT BY LYNSEY BRADFORD SARAH Crawshaw and son Lee have been immortalised in stained glass at St Luke’s, Grimethorpe. The windows have been created by French glass artist Nathalie Liege and contain images of St Luke and the Virgin Mary.
Sarah and son are featured as Mary and baby Jesus. Parish priest Fr Peter Needham, Nathalie and congregation members Audrey Bailey and Peter Squires also feature in the windows. Nathalie used a revolutionary way of getting the images onto the glass using photographs, plaster reliefs and rubber casts.
Fr Peter said: “I want to bring the best of things to people in Grimethorpe. “The Liege windows offer, to the whole community, a work of art that people can have pride in. “They are not the average church glass windows, but images you can continue to look in and through, and constantly find something new. “The fact the images in the windows
are based on members of the Grimethorpe community who were involved in their development at the start, means that this work of art is truly alive, inspired by the people, for the people – the people of God.” Liz Whitehouse, director of The Art House, who managed the project, said the project had ‘been brilliant from start to finish’.
Glass act: Church goers Sarah and Lee Crawshaw.
‘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.

OTTERS, hedgehogs, kestrels and barn owls all have a future in Barnsley and the Biodiversity Trust is trying to make that future more secure. It launched its new proposal at a ceremony at Wentworth Castle with patron, Bard of Barnsley Ian McMillan. It reports that its targets and priorities for the next four years will include searching for funding to provide bird boxes for kestrels, barn owls and tree sparrows, and raising awareness and creating refuges for
‘There are species which went away years ago but they’re coming back now the pollution in the rivers has decreased’ otters, water voles and hedgehogs. Chair of Barnsley Biodiversity Trust, Geoff Carr, said: “There are species which went away years ago but they’re coming back now the pollution in the rivers has decreased. “But we can’t stop
looking after them. “Otters disappeared in the 1960s and they’re just starting to come back – they’re exploring new territories. “But if the rivers don’t improve any further, they might not reestablish here and breed.”
Special scheme: Hoylandswaine Primary School pupils Michael Stansfield and Brier Curley were the first to benefit from the new biodiversity scheme and were at Wentworth Castle with local poet Ian McMillan and the trustees of the biodiversity trust. Picture: Wes Hobson
CANCER DAD WINS DRUG BATTLE ‘We have been told the treatment could shrink the tumour’
BY ADAM CIVICO A FAMILY had a double celebration last week after Barnsley PCT made a u-turn on its decision to refuse a cancer drug to brain tumour patient David Gladwin. His tumour is terminal but he could now have longer to spend with his family and the news meant he was able to enjoy his daughter Lily’s seventh birthday.
The builder, aged 37, of Malincroft, Mapplewell, told the Chronicle: “We just cried when we found out. We were in shock a bit when we heard but when it sank in we were really pleased. “We have been told the treatment could shrink the tumour.” David had been told by health bosses there was not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of the drug, Avastin, so was refused treatment, as the Chronicle revealed last month. Since then his story has been reported nationally, a 6,000-signature petition supporting him has been collected and NHS Barnsley has changed its mind. That means he is now looking forward to enjoying other family moments, like seeing youngest daughter, Evie, two, start nursery.
Getting treatment: David Gladwin with wife Sarah and daughters Lily and Evie. Wife Sarah, 32, said: “We are ecstatic. They are offering him the chance we wanted.” NHS Barnsley, which funds patients’ treatment, is under no obligation to provide Avastin because it has not been approved by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence. But it has been used elsewhere in the country and experts told David it
might halt the progress of his tumour. It is thought to cost about £1,800 a dose. David’s treatment should start on Tuesday and by Christmas he should know whether it has had an effect. While they are delighted he has been given the chance to extend his life they are still frustrated the PCT initially said no – causing weeks of anguish. Sarah, a dental nurse, said: “He could have been on it for two months. I’m happy they have come to the decision, though I have not been happy it has taken as long as it has.” NHS Barnsley’s u-turn came after the funding panel reconsidered David’s case. A spokesman said: “After consideration of the original evidence, the content of the letters of appeal and a further additional information summary provided by a GP, the panel recommended that approval be given to fund the request.” Sarah believes they should say sorry. “Why could they not find the evidence the first time around? It has caused a lot of upset.” n Liberty beauty parlour in Cudworth, which was raising money to help David fund his treatment, has donated the cash to Weston Park Hospital.

BARNSLEY MP Jeff Ennis presented a dossier of evidence about why Yorkshire should be connected to a new high speed rail network. Mr Ennis and Rosie Winterton, Minister for Yorkshire and Humber, met Sir David Rowlands, chairman of High Speed 2. His organisation advises the government on high speed rail development. The dossier presented by Mr Ennis claims there is compelling evidence for including Yorkshire in the plans, bringing major economic benefits.

He is tasked with covering farms in Penistone, Holmfirth, Huddersfield and Halifax as part of a project managed by the Churches’ Regional Commission for Yorkshire and Humber. The aim of the project is to reach those in the farming community, particularly people working in the uplands, who do not have access to support and training. “Farming faces considerable challenges in the years ahead,” said Jonathan. “The Farm Business Support and
Development project engages farmers in knowledge and training to help keep the farming community in the South Pennines in a good position to survive.” The project was set up in 2003, first in the Northern Dales, then in Ryedale followed by the North Yorkshire Moors. It has been successful in the level of support provided, and European money has been secured to allow the commission to extend into the South Pennines. “The project aims to offer practical support to farmers in the South Pennines area through one-to-one mentoring and by offering topical localised events,” said Jonathan. “It is particularly appropriate for the ‘hard to reach’ areas of the Pennines where practical help is not
always easily available. “The support offered is tailored to individual situations from helping farmers to get through current problems, to organising topical workshops and training events on issues such as the electronic identification of sheep and succession planning. “Whatever support or training is required we will try to deliver to the benefit of the individual business and the wider rural community.” It has been funded through Lantra from the Landskills part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE). The support offered is free to farmers in the Yorkshire region and for more information contact Jonathan on 07595410707 or e-mail him – jonathan.charlesworth@crconline .org.uk

Plans to make the once ‘dead’ Dearne Valley the green heart of South Yorkshire are gathering pace. Adam Civico finds out more. RSPB officer Pete Wall’s Tshirt states he is doing his bit for nature. But, unusually for a man employed by a bird protection society, that ‘bit’ involves otters, voles and eels. He is in charge of creating a ‘green heart’ stretching from Grimethorpe through Darfield and Wombwell and on to Adwick-upon-Dearne. “One of our biggest proj-

ects at the moment is about water voles and otters in the valley,” says Pete. “We’re also doing work on eels and working out ways to introduce them to the area and reconnect them with the washlands. “The Don and the Dearne were dead rivers but the Dearne is getting much cleaner and there are some big old fish.” The thought of eels swimming around might perturb the squeamish. But Pete’s colleague Nicki Scothern says: “They used to be here in abundance.” And the view is they will be good for the biology of the river and the wider Dearne Valley. If all goes according to plan several nature reserves along the valley will be linked with a network of paths giving residents easy access. Those reserves include Edderthorpe Flash at Grimethorpe, Bolton Ings, Wombwell Ings and Old Moor.
Reconnecting: RSPB Old Moor. “There is a balance between disturbing wildlife and giving access but the Dearne Valley is nothing without the people,” adds Nicki. “The councils call it green infrastructure but all we want is some footpaths and cycle paths. “We went to Barnsley

Council and they are planning all these things and are raising funds to finance some of the footpaths. “It’s about reconnecting people with these areas and combining nature reserves, communities, industry and farmland and showing they can all coexist.” It’s also about preserving wildlife in the reserves and great strides have been made on that score. Endangered lapwings are breeding at what Pete calls a ‘lapwing factory’ – more formally known as Wombwell Ings – and bitterns have been seen at Edderthorpe “Bitterns are a very rare type of heron,” says Pete. “About a month ago one was seen at Edderthorpe Flash, it was the first time one had ever been recorded there. “We have only had the reserve since Christmas but have done quite a lot of work and it is little moments like that, when a bird turns up for the first time, that makes it worthwhile.” What also makes the green heart plan worthwhile is the way it should protect the communities worst affected by floods in 2007. Pete says: “It’s great to have nature reserves but there is a strong possibility we could affect lives. By looking after the washlands it makes the borough more resilient to flooding. “Washlands are where water should have room to spread out. Every time we take one over and preserve it that is a good thing.”
