barnsleyindependent Pet rescue: Angie Bell, volunteer at Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity.

PET NEGLECT FEAR A VOLUNTEER who looks after more than 20 rabbits says a lot of people who keep the animals don’t know how to look after them properly. Angie Bell, of Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity (BARC), has four pet rabbits of her own but has about 18 which have been abandoned or given up by owners across Barnsley and further afield. She is looking after 11 who were left in a tiny hutch at a house in Leeds when the owner moved out. She said: “They were all really thin and would have died if the neighbours hadn’t noticed and rescued them. “This winter has been one of the worst I have known for people wanting to get rid of their pet rabbits. “People think they’re easy pets, but they’re only

easy if you don’t take care of them properly. They need cleaning out every two days. “They need vaccinations just like cats and dogs do, and they need good quality food. “People feed them rubbish and they get tummy problems. Then they end up coming to us because people don’t want to pay the vet bills.” Once Angie has nursed them back to health and had them neutered, they will be available for adoption.

“But with the budget reductions we’re faced with, we’re having to look at everything across the board. “It won’t affect families entitled to free school meals, and if there are other families in financial hardship, who are not on the free school meals system, we’d ask them to get in touch. “We don’t want this to be a barrier to people learning instruments.” The council will save more than £100,000 by cutting its subsidy. The move may also mean increased charges to groups and bands who rehearse at the centre, including Barnsley Metropolitan Band, Barnsley Town Concert Band, Barnsley Folk Orchestra and Wentworth String Orchestra.

But the other half have lessons on their own or in small groups. These are funded three ways — by the council, government and parents. The government said it would continue to fund the lessons, but the council is withdrawing its subsidy from September.

Polish-born Barnsley lass Monika Godlewska, 24, is starring in a new film shot in Sheffield and plays what she describes as a ‘Bond girl’ sort of character. “It’s a really good film.

‘SCHOOL’S MAKING PROGRESS’ A PRIMARY school told to improve its quality of teaching is making decent progress, says a report. Joseph Locke Primary, Shaw Street, Barnsley, was given a satisfactory grade and recommended to improve learning at the school after an inspection by education watchdog Ofsted in 2009. Inspectors revisiting the school last month found attainment had improved. It said key stage two children attainment was ‘notably higher’, particularly in maths. The quality of teaching and learning has improved and ‘inadequate teaching has been tackled determinedly’. “The teachers plan lessons thoughtfully and they have increased the level of challenge for the pupils, although sometimes the work they set is still too easy,” it said. It said staff were responding well to the leadership provided and senior staff knew what still needed to be worked on. “As a result of these factors the quality of teaching and learning has improved and pupils’ attainment has increased.”

SAM RETURNS TO HIS OLD SCHOOL CHILDREN’S television presenter Sam Nixon returned to his old primary school to talk to pupils about Comic Relief. The former Pop Idol contestant, 24, returned to Burton Road Primary School with Mark Rhodes, his co-star in BBC show TMi, to talk about a trip to Tanzania and how Red Nose Day money is helping children in Africa. Sam said: “It’s wicked to be back, I’ve not been back for eight years. “There are still two teachers here that were teaching when I was here – they haven’t changed a bit.”

Mark, 29, said it was important for schools to get involved in Comic Relief and raise as much money as they can. He added: “It was a real eye-opener for us in Tanzania. We went to a centre that gets kids off the street and reunites them with their families. “We played games with them and put shows on for them and it was really nice to see them have a bit of normality.” The pair will host talent contest, Comic Relief Does Glee Club, and the final takes place on March 18.

MP urges action on ‘legal loan sharks’ By Adam Civico A BARNSLEY MP urged Parliament to legislate against against ‘legal loan sharks’ who exploit some of the poorest in the borough. John Healey said pay day and doorstep lenders were getting away with charging astronomical interest rates.

He has joined a cross-party group that is determined to force regulation on such lenders in order to protect vulnerable consumers. Mr Healey voted in favour of introducing a cap on the amount that pay day and doorstep lenders can charge for credit. John said: “The rates these compa-

nies charge are astronomical and as there’s little competition they get away with it. “In other countries across Europe and North America, politicians have acted to protect the poorest consumers to ensure that this type of lending is done fairly.”

KEITH TOPS LIST AFTER TOUGH TIMES BY DOUG O’KANE A WOMBWELL man who has battled with depression for more than 25 years is one of the best British runners in his age group. Keith Williams, 61, topped the UK vet60 rankings for ten mile races in 2010 and was second in the 10k category. His time of 59-34 over ten miles set in Manchester last August is the eighth fastest of all time for a British man of that age.
