A spokesman for Tyke Leisure said: “As well as appealing to the casual racer, we would hope to target the corporate market, encouraging businesses to come to Barnsley to try karting and see what the town has to offer.” If plans are approved the track could be operating by April.

BID TO CUT HOUSING WAITING LIST BY MIKE COTTON THE council is to put up money for a bond to help people set up home in private rented housing.

(S)

Principal’s right royal award NORTHERN College principal Jill Westerman received her CBE from the Queen last week – and told her how excellent the college was. She said she was honoured to meet the Queen. “She made the time to chat to me for a moment and I was able to tell her a little about the excellent work the Northern College does for adults returning to education.” Jill said the work would be of particular importance as government cuts kick in and more adults want better skills to help them get work. Her CBE was awarded for services to adult learning.

The scheme, approved by the council’s cabinet is designed to reduce the council house waiting list of more than 9,000. The bond won’t physically be handed over. It will be in the form of a guarantee from the council to the landlord that the bond will be paid if the property is damaged. Coun Bill Newman said: “One of the problems with the private rented sector is you require a bond. That bond will be put aside by the local authority, to help people. It will be funded from the supporting people budget.” Coun Newman unveiled the plan as part of a report into the state of the housing market. It says growth in house prices is muted in

Barnsley compared to the national picture. In July the average house price was £121,000, compared to £232,000 nationally and £158,000 in Yorkshire and Humber. He said: “The state of the housing market is appalling. I think it’s the worst I have ever known it in my time on the council (since 1984). “We have to go back to the 1940s to see anything as bad as it is now, or as bad as it is going to be, particularly for the north and particularly for places like Barnsley.” He said a number of schemes designed to kickstart housing had already been abolished by the government, such as ‘pathfinders’ and the ‘green corridor’. “The cut to housing investment in Barnsley is something like 80 per cent. The impact that’s going to have on people in Barnsley, and on industry in Barnsley, is going to be

WHY TREE IS A TALL ORDER FOR IAN BY KATE PICKLES A GRANDDAD is hoping to spruce up Christmas for a charity with this 14-ft tree. Ian Sykes, 53, planted it in his garden when grandson Jack was born nine years ago. But, like Jack, the tree has grown considerably taller and become too difficult to decorate. Now the driving instructor, of Snetterton Close, Cudworth, is hoping to either donate it to a charity or auction it and give the proceeds to Yorkshire Air Ambulance. “It’s a brilliant looking tree but it’s getting taller and taller,” he said. “I dress it up with lights every year and started with one set, then it became two, then three. “I thought I have to let it go really, the tree was getting too tall to reach. “It would make someone a great tree if there’s a charity that wants it they’re welcome or if someone wants to buy it I will give the money to charity.” Anyone interested should call Ian on 07931 104302.

Former White Cross pupil Rob Wass, 30, makes the pieces in the attic of his home at Pitt Street, Barnsley. He has three pieces in the Cooper, a life-size man and dog called Bob and Basil, and a skeleton that walks. Rob has used metal salvaged from old kitchen units to make the sculptures. He said: “I will see someone’s junk in their yard and go and ask if I’m all right to raid it.” Drawer slides, curtain wire and springs are some of his favoured materials. “It’s mostly metalwork. It would be welded but I don’t have a welder so I have to come up with different ways of fastening stuff together.” Unemployed Rob lets the materials guide him when he starts a sculpture. “I don’t know exactly what I’m building until it starts taking form.” He has had several exhibitions in Barnsley and says he’d like to show his work in a city next.

Insert a small gift and some sequin confetti before repeating at the opposite end of the cracker. Leave the cardboard tubes in the ends while you decorate your cracker. This will help to stop the ends getting creased and provide a firmer support if you wish to glue decorations around them.

To make the decorative seals, fit the glue gun with a coloured glue stick. Dispense a large bead of glue onto the baking parchment and, working

quickly so the glue remains flexible, press the seal stamp to the surface of the ink pad and then onto the bead of warm glue. Repeat to make more seals. When cool, peel baking parchment from

The Magic of

Christmas

KEEP KIDS IN REAL STYLE IT’S not just adults who like to look their best during the festive season – boys and girls are keen to put on their party outfits too. Over Christmas and New Year there are plenty of opportunities for children to dress to impress as they go out with their parents visiting family and friends. For most little girls there is nothing better than a new party dress and although there aren’t set trends, little ones love to copy what older girls are wearing. As a result influences of the top looks in teens’ and ladies’ fashions can be found in children’s wear. Examples for the party season include shift style dresses, animal print, 50s-inspired polka dot skirts, antique-lace, military-style trousers and faux fur jackets. Bows, sequins and ruffles are extremely popular for the party season, especially in prom-style dresses and fairy-inspired tutu skirts, ideal for real girlie girls. Meanwhile for boys the smart casual look makes perfect party wear. Jeans and trainers worn with a shirt, waistcoat and tie is a cute combination, just right for Christmas celebrations. Knitwear is also popular in colourful v-neck or smart cardigans. Influences from teen boys’ wear is coming through in smart blazers worn with straight-leg jeans, bright print T-shirts and boots or pumps.

Stuff yourself with a Christmas treat MAKE Christmas Day special this year with a super recipe. Christmas Day is stressful enough without putting added pressure on yourself spending hours slaving away in the kitchen. The butter-roasted turkey will turn a frozen turkey into something really special. Remember to remove the turkey from the freezer the day before, giving it plenty of time to defrost properly.

For the stuffing Make the stuffing by boiling the rice in a large pan of salted water for 20 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, drain again and place in a bowl. Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and cook gently for ten minutes until soft and golden. Cut the apricots into strips, add to the pan and fry gently for one minute. Add the mixture to the rice with the nuts and herbs and mix well. Allow to cool. Add the egg and mix well, season generously with salt and pepper. Remove and reserve the giblets from the turkey. Loosen the skin at the neck end of the turkey, easing it off the breast with your fingers. With a small knife remove the wishbone. Spoon the stuffing inside the neck end only then neaten the shape, tuck the skin under and secure with a metal skewer. Weigh the turkey and calculate the cooking time, allowing 40 minutes per kilo.

The turkey Place the turkey in a roasting tin, breast

side down and spread with butter. Season with a little salt and pepper. Place the giblets around the turkey, then cover with foil to make a ‘tent’. Roast in the oven at 190C (370F) Gas mark five, basting regularly. About 45 minutes before the end of the cooking time, remove the foil, turn the turkey over and continue cooking until the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted into the thickest part of the thigh. Carefully tilt the bird to allow the juices in the cavity to run into the tin. Transfer the bird to a warmed platter, cover with foil and leave to rest for 30 minutes.

Ingredients  Turkey, with giblets, about 4.5kg  125g butter, softened  Salt and pepper  175g mixed long-grain and wild rice  3 tbsp oil

 200g chopped onions 150g dried apricots  50g pistachio nuts  4 tbsp parsley  1 tbsp thyme  1 large egg, beaten  3 tbsp plain flour  200ml dry sherry  1.1 litres home-made turkey or chicken stock

DECORATING a Christmas tree is an activity many of us look forward to but just like fashion, festive trends change. For some nothing beats traditional decorations and ornaments in classic gold, red and green, and luckily this is a trend that never fades. Those with children might favour this year’s ‘Festive Funfair’ look – an exciting trend where almost anything goes. Use bright colours, neon highlights, kaleidoscope baubles, jolly Santa and reindeer characters and fun festive patterns. Finally for a more sophisticated look we are encouraged to opt for an Art Deco inspired Christmas. Mix Festive fashion: Contemporary Christmas decorations silver, deep blue and from Matalan. (S) bronze in elegant shaped, glass decora tions with patterns from the 1920s.

Many women feel they don’t have time to spend on themselves at this time of year, but a quick trip to the hairdresser or beauty salon can make all the difference, preparing you for the party season ahead. The winter weather is harsh on both hair and skin so these are two main areas to concentrate on. There is no need to go all out with a new hairstyle at Christmas but it’s an ideal time of year to smarten up your locks. If roots are showing book in for a colour, cut and blow-dry and ask for a deep conditioning treatment to rehydrate dry, damaged hair. If you have a special night out lined up why not ask for your hair to be styled or put up. Loose updos are a key look for winter 2010. If you want to wear your hair down, high volume and soft waves are two of the hottest trends.

At the beauty salon a facial and full body polish are a must if the harsh winter weather has left you with dry, flaky skin. These treatments will hydrate and banish dull, dry surface cells so you can wear your chosen party outfit with confidence. If you’re planning to bare a little flesh, a spray tan is another must. A simple airbrush treatment will ensure a natural, streak-free golden tan that will last for up to seven days, giving you plenty of time to party. While you’re at the salon why not treat yourself to a manicure and/or pedicure – it’s these little extras that boost confidence and add a touch of glamour to girly nights out. All this may appear to be completely self-indulgent but you can think of others when enjoying your pre-Christmas pamper. Many hair and beauty salons have a range of gifts available during the festive period and if all else fails you can always fall back on salon gift vouchers so friends and family can treat themselves to a little pampering too.

ESCAPE WINTER WITH AN EXOTIC TRIP TO GOA Bahamani Muslims and most famously the Portuguese have been rulers of the land that Hindu mythology says was created by Lord Parshuram, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Having been the meeting point of races, religions and cultures of East and West for centuries, Goa has a multi-hued and distinctive lifestyle quite different from the rest of India. Hindu and Catholic communities make up almost the entire population, with minority representation of Muslims and other religions. Since the arrival of the Hippies in the 1950s, Goa has been a major destination for tourists. The holiday season starts in late September and carries on through to early March when the weather is usually dry and pleasantly cool.

The weather hots up in May and June before the Indian monsoon season arrives with its sudden downpours and tropical thunderstorms. However, it is also during the monsoon that Goa is probably at its most beautiful, with greenery sprouting all around. Goa’s northern resorts are lively, with a handful of clubs across the region, with Calangute and Baga offering casual bars and eateries and Candolim providing restaurants and beach shacks. South Goa’s nightlife tends to be hotelbased. Besides the nightlife, natural Tropical paradise: There is more to Goa than just magnificent beaches. beauty, the fabulous beaches and sunshine, travellers to Goa love the laid-back, peaceful, f l o o r i n g s p e c i a l i s t 1 Barnsley Road, Dodworth, Barnsley warm and friendly nature of www.woodwardcarpets.com the local people.

IF you are looking to escape the winter weather for a beach holiday over the festive season, go to Goa. The former Portuguese colony which which was liberated in 1961 and sits on the western coast of India. The magnificent scenic beauty and the architectural splendour of its temples, churches and old houses have made Goa a firm favourite with travellers around the world. But then, Goa is much more than just beaches and sea. It has a soul that goes deep into a unique history, rich culture and some of the prettiest natural scenery India has to offer. If you tire of lazing on the lovely beaches, head inland to find the real Goa. Over the centuries, various dynasties have ruled. Rashtrakutas, Kadambas, Silaharas, Chalukyas,

Perfume and aftershave make top Christmas gifts but it’s important to choose the right scent for the right person. The choice of fragrances available for both men and women is almost endless, making choosing one a challenging and time consuming task. Shoppers often become distracted by fancy boxes and extravagant bottles rather than concentrating on the actual scent in amongst all the packaging. Here, fragrance expert Michelle D’vaz at The Perfume Shop lends a helping hand by revealing this season’s top fragrances. “The top trend for autumn/winter is heavier, more amber coloured scents to complement heavier clothing and colder weather,” says Michelle. “This means muskier perfumes such as Lady

HOLLY AND IVY ARE CHRISTMAS PLANTS SNOWDROPS and crocuses tell us when spring is coming, roses signal the arrival of summer and the holly and the ivy are the plant indicators of winter — and, in particular, Christmas. The holly, botanical name Ilex, is native to the UK. There are 400 species of Ilex across most of Europe, North Africa and Asia, and the native holly is Ilex aquifolium. It has dark green leathery leaves, which are stiff and twisted. The flowers are white

and appear in summer, ripening in October to produce a bright red berry. A good crop of berries is said to be a warning that a hard winter is on the way, but in reality a bumper berry crop isn’t a sign of bad weather to come but of a fine summer just past. There are many traditions surrounding holly. The red berries are said to symbolise drops of Christ’s blood and the leaves to represent the thorns of Christ’s crown. In Ireland, leaves of a

female holly plant would be placed under the pillow to foresee the future in dreams. For centuries, holly has been a symbol of Christmas and is often used to decorate houses at this time of year. For a longer decorative life, treat holly as you would any cut flower. After removing it from the bag, dip it in cool, fresh water and place it in a vase of water. Misting daily will help preserve its freshness. Keep it as cool as possible, out of direct sunlight and away from radiators and other heat sources. Holly has been used for its medicinal qualities. It was believed whooping cough could be cured by drinking

milk out of a bowl made from the wood of the holly plant, and a tea made of holly leaves was given to promote sweating in cases of catarrh, pleurisy and smallpox, and to relieve fever and rheumatism. The berries caused violent sickness, but powdered they were used to stop bleeding. The second most famous Christmas plant is Hedera helix, or ivy — a symbol of everlasting life because, like holly, it is evergreen. Ivy has medicinal properties, but is not a herb to be taken internally as it has been shown to destroy red blood cells. It can be applied externally for sickness-

24.11.10 24.11.10 ENGLAND DEBUT: Kieran Trippier made his debut for England under 21s last week. The full-back, on loan at Oakwell from Manchester City, started for Stuart Pearce’s side against Germany in Wiesbaden. Trippier did well, but England, having had goalkeeper Jason Steele sent off in the second half, suffered a 2-0 defeat. Trippier got back into the Barnsley starting line-up this month after impressing in the wins over Preston and Ipswich.

JIM ROCKETS TO RECORD THE fastest living Briton on water lives in Barugh Green – and he has just broken another world record. Jim Noone, 52, extended the world speed record for Formula R100 boats from 89.6 to 103.8mph at Coniston Water in the Lake District this month. “It was a great feeling to beat the record by such a long way,” he said. “I have put a lot of time and money into this boat so I am happy it has paid off.” This is not the first time Jim has caused a stir in the world of power boat racing. In 2003 he clocked 154 mph on Lake Windermere. It was the second fastest

speed ever recorded by a Briton, after the legendary Sir Donald Campbell who clocked over 300mph. Noone, who is originally from Leeds, is also a member of Campbell’s prestigious K7 Club which only accepts British people who have gone faster than 100mph on water and have broken a national or world record. But he never got to test that boat against the rest of the world as his engine, deemed not to meet race rules, was banned. Noone has spent the intervening years attempting to build a new boat which fits the rules. Germany has won the European Championships eight times in a row but

Noone is determined to break their stranglehold next year. He said: “I am sure the Germans will have taken notice of this new record. I am ready to take them on and it is about time someone beat them.”
