Edward’s the new Dickie

Diego’s in at Oakwell

REUNITED AFTER 58 YEARS’ SEPARATION BY EMMA SPENCER A MOTHER and daughter who have been reunited for the first time in 58 years have discovered they have lived almost parallel lives. Judy Flather, 59, made contact with Helen Carter, 81 in November after an eight year search to track her down. In 1949, aged 18 months, Judy was put up for adoption and lived with her adoptive parents in Somerset before moving to Barnsley. The pair have spent Christmas and New Year together at Judy’s home in New Royd, Millhouse Green, and discovered they have lived similar lives. Judy and Helen nearly died from a perforated appendix in their late 20s and have led the same career paths – both have been nurses, dressmakers and have worked in the catering industry. Judy had been dreading the festive season as it was her first without husband Dave who died in September. She said: “What I thought was going to be absolutely horrendous has turned into something unbelievable. “Dave will be up there with my mum’s husband and they will be shaking hands saying job well done because he was always so supportive of my searching.” Judy moved to Barnsley when she

met Dave. She had always wanted to find her mother and stepped up her search eight years ago. Judy combed adoption and marriage records, school lists and electoral rolls. It took her five years alone to discover Helen had a brother living in Newton Abbot but after sending letters to everyone in that area with the same name she discovered he had long since emigrated with no forwarding address. In September Judy randomly visited a website she hadn’t used much and later discovered they had managed to trace Helen and her family. Judy discovered she had uncles, aunts and nine cousins and Helen has met her daughter, two grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Judy said: “When I got the information I was absolutely ecstatic. I was like a kid in a sweet shop with the biggest bar of chocolate and couldn't believe it. There was no awkwardness when we met. We looked at each other and knew who we were and had the same mannerisms. It is just so uncanny.” Helen, who now lives in Eastbourne, said: “I always wondered what had happened to her and was so shocked to hear from her. It has been a fantastic Christmas and it's fantastic to be called mum and grandma.”

Masked robbers steal cash and mobile phones TWO balaclava-clad robbers armed with baseball bats forced their way into a Wombwell home and stole cash and mobile phones. The men knocked on the front door of the house at Foley Avenue, and when the occupant opened it, forced their way in and went upstairs. The offenders were pursued for a short distance by residents but managed to escape. Police searched the area but failed to find them. Further enquiries are still ongoing. The victims, the owner of the house and his girlfriend, were unhurt but police said they were ‘very distressed’. Sgt Phil Jenkins of Wombwell Safer Neighbourhood team said: “This is a very serious crime. We don’t often have things like this in Wombwell. We’ve got people going around thinking they can force their way into houses and it’s not on. “The sooner we catch these individuals the better.”

‘NO PARKING’ ZONE NOT ENFORCEABLE BY MIKE COTTON YELLOW zigzag lines painted outside High View School are not yet enforceable in law even though the area forum meeting was told they were. The police sergeant for Wombwell Safer Neighbourhood Team is frustrated that there are no powers to enforce them. The lines were put down in November to stop cars parking on or around the school’s entrance. The area forum meeting on December 17 was told the lines were enforceable and tickets would be issued. But a council spokesman confirmed this is not the case. Sgt Phil Jenkins said: “I’m disappointed and a bit annoyed that the things we have been discussing for months are still not finalised and in place. “From our point of view, people are saying we have a duty to enforce these zigzag lines. We want to get out there and do it. But we can’t do it if they’re not legal.

“We will still go up there and if anyone is physically causing an obstruction we will deal with it. But we can’t enforce these lines. We will be able to eventually but at the moment it’s really is quite frustrating.” Road safety campaigner Rebecca Hewitt, 11, who lives opposite the school, says the lines just aren’t good enough anyway, whether legally enforceable or not. She said: “The lines are OK but I just don’t think they’re enough. They haven’t stopped the cars coming, just moved them a bit farther away. Somebody needs to do something to stop so many cars coming to school. “Some people have to take cars, but some people who take them every day should give walking a try once in a while. It won’t hurt their legs.” Rebecca, who now goes to Wombwell High, would like to see an alternative entrance for children walking to High View, perhaps at the back onto John Street, and a safe place for parents to drop their children off by car. Coun Margaret Morgan said she was very disappointed that the lines were not yet enforceable. She said: “I was told in a meeting in November that they would be enforceable within a week and tickets would start being issued. “They will be enforceable soon. In the meantime, I would hope parents who are dropping their children off think about other children, and not just their own, because every child’s life is valuable.” Alan Carnall, assistant director for highways, said: “We are currently going through the necessary legal processes and should hopefully complete them during January. “Once these are completed we intend to work with the police to effectively deal with the issues of indiscriminate parking

Not good enough: Concerned Rebecca Hewitt doesn’t think the yellow zigzag lines outside High View go far enough to protect her former classmates from dangerous traffic. Picture: Jamie Lorriman around our schools. “Following the meeting at the end of November, staff visited the school and delivered a banner which the school can display advising parents where not to park. Coun Roy Miller, Cabinet spokesperson for environmental services,

said: “We have a rolling programme of introducing school safety zones, which affects about 15 schools per year on a priority basis and sees the introduction of a number of safety measures at these schools. “The zones include the introduction of zigzag

markers as well as increased signage and flashing amber lights. Over the last two years we have introduced these zones at almost 30 schools and we have set aside money for future years to ensure all schools are covered by them as soon as possible."

More centres for kids planned

YOUNGEST UMPIRE AIMS TO BE NEXT DICKIE

MORE than ÂŁ1.2m is to be spent creating more children's centres across Barnsley. They will offer support to families with youngsters as well as providing advice on a range of issues. As well as working with the children, staff will also advise parents who want to get back into work or training. Specialists will also advise on financial matters or problems like post-maternal depression.

BY JOANNE WRIGHT

There are already 16 children's centres in the most deprived areas of Barnsley. Some cash will go on new ones in Penistone, Dodworth and Darton and some on improving existing centres. Barnsley Council's cabinet approved the centres on Wednesday. Coun Linda Burgess, said: “It is very welcome and will ensure children have the support needed at the earliest stage.�

HOWZAT! A 14-year-old Barnsley cricket fanatic has just become the youngest person in Yorkshire to qualify as an umpire. Edward Hennessy of Towngate, Thurlstone, scored an impressive 93 per cent in the Umpires Association exam. The Penistone Grammar School student started playing cricket when he was ten years old after going to see his first match at Headingley. He now plays for Green Moor Cricket Club but his passion lies with officiating the game. “I can’t wait until the season starts in April, I will be umpiring in games against men older than my dad. I love playing but I have learnt so much more about the game through training as an umpire,� he said. “As a player I want to be like Michael Vaughan and obviously Dickie Bird is the man I look up to as an umpire.� Edward has met the former Test umpire who offered the youngster some wisdom about the game. Dickie said: “The most important things to remember when umpiring are application, dedication and concentration. But any umpire must have common sense and above all enjoy it. “I wish him the best for the future and hope he goes all the way in the game.� Edward said he hopes for just a fraction of his hero's success. “Ultimately I would like to umpire for England but just doing it for Yorkshire would be a dream come true,� he said.

VILLAGES GET TOGETHER TO FIGHT CRIME

Jenna’s on a roll for hit video

BY JOANNE WRIGHT RESIDENTS in Penistone East have set up a crime and safety group after a spate of vandalism and lighter fuel abuse in one of the villages.

BY JULIAN THORPE JENNA Downing is skating up the charts after landing the lead role in a music video. Jenna, 19, of West End Crescent, Royston, shows off her in-line skating skills in the promotional video for Peter Gelderblom’s dancefloor hit, Waiting 4. The video shows Jenna skating around the streets of London, performing dangerous stunts, while she is chased by other skaters. It can be seen on video channel playlists all over the world. The song, a dance remix of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ By The Way, made it to the top 40 in the UK singles charts and the top ten in the dance charts. It also broke into the top 20 of the Spanish charts, thanks to its popularity in Ibiza last summer. Jenna said: “Because I haven’t told many people, a lot of people just randomly see it on the TV, and I think they’re just shocked. It’s brilliant. I think my mum’s told everyone she knows though.”

09.01.08

Earlier last month residents in Penistone East, which includes the villages of Silkstone, Silkstone Common, Hoylandswaine, Cawthorne, Crow Edge and Thurgoland, met to discuss crime and anti-social behaviour. The move came after more than 40 cans of lighter fluid were found on Silkstone recreation ground recently and in October vandals caused thousands of pounds of damage to cars and homes in the same village. After an assault in the area last week PC Andy Thompson from Penistone’s Safer Neighbourhood Team said the groups can be vital in helping police enquiries. It was the last area in Barnsley to set up a crime group and chairman Meryl Liddell, of Black Horse Drive, Silkstone, said seeing the groups working in other districts inspired her to get involved. She said: “In Penistone the little villages see themselves as individual and we want

THE Penistone and District Amateur Operatic Society's annual production has been given a £1,000 boost by the area forum board. The production this year will be The King and I at the Paramount from Tuesday March 11 to Saturday March 15. The production will cost £12,500 in total and depending on ticket sales the company could make a loss. The group asked the area forum for a grant of £500 for the cost of costumes, equipment and musicians for the play. But many councillors on the area forum board thought they should offer more to the local group. Coun Brenda Hinchliffe said: “It brings great pleasure to so many people that I

to bring them all together. “Some of the villages don’t have parish councils so the residents don’t have anywhere to go. Many older residents are not comfortable talking to the police for fear of reprisals so now they can come to us.” Residents will be encouraged to keep incident diaries of any trouble that can be passed on to the police through the group. Keeping teenagers off the streets is one of the issues that will be looked at during the next meeting. Mrs Liddell said: “It is about prevention as much as reporting crime so we will eventually be looking for funding for things like youth projects and cold calling zones for the elderly.” A ‘no cold calling zone’ was set up in Manor Park, Silkstone, in November after the area forum board gave £500 to help launch it following a pilot scheme in Oxspring. Trading standards officers gave talks to elderly people and signs were displayed in their homes. The next meeting will be held at Silkstone Cricket Club on Tuesday January 15 at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

think we should offer them £1,000. This is still only covering a fraction of the cost of a production this size.” Penistone Town Council has also helped out by reducing the cost of hiring the Paramount theatre. The group, formerly Penistone Centre Stage Musicals, has 20 junior and 50 adult members working on the play. Eileen Mellor of Hodgkinson Avenue, who is a member of the society, said: “We are starting floor rehearsals this week and we have already been rehearsing the singing. “The production is going well and any extra money is a bonus for the group.” The musical, based on the book Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon, was first performed on Broadway in 1951 and has since spawned many remakes.

YOUTH CLUB THREATENED BY CLOSURE BY GILLIAN PICKER THURNSCOE will lose its only youth club if a rescue campaign fails to win community support. Funding for Hickleton Youth Project runs out in March, redundancy notices are ready to be issued and the nine staff will be laid off. A Save Our Youth Club campaign will be launched on Monday January 21 at the premises adjacent to Thurnscoe Business Centre at 6pm. It that fails then the club will only be able to open with the help of volunteers. “I want to get as many parents, volunteers, members of the community and kids to turn up and help to save the club from extinction,� said youth leader Ian Ball who has been running it full-time since March 2003 when it reopened after a five year closure. He is hand-delivering a letter to the parents of every young person on the club’s database, which runs into hundreds, and printing posters. “We’ll find out how many people are really interested in saving it. Without funding we shall have to rely on volunteers to keep it open and will have to cut open nights from four to two. I shall still be

running the Dearne Kids’ Activity Group which I ran voluntary for many years.â€? A Big Lottery grant of ÂŁ260,000 has provided funding for the last three years and there have been small grants for specific activities. “We’ve applied to various places for grants, such as Children in Need, but it could be after March before we hear anything. We’ll still lose staff to cut costs, but I want to keep some on.â€? In the meantime redundancy notices will be issued to the two full-time staff - Ian Ball and Annette Hargreaves, who has been community assistant for three years. There are nine staff altogether, but the others are not eligible for redundancy as they are on short term contracts running such activities as the holiday clubs which open every school holiday. Hickleton Youth Project was established in 1992 after the closure of the pit. Barnsley Youth Service ran it for four years, but pulled out in 1997 and it had to close when the trustees failed to find volunteers to run it. It was re-established by outreach staff at Station House Community Association, but was always reliant on external funding and needs ÂŁ80,000 a year to continue running at its present level.

Third ‘bookies’ plan opposed PLANS to close Wise Owl Discount Store on High Street and turn it into Wombwell’s third bookmakers went before the council’s planning board yesterday. More than 3,000 people signed a petition objecting to the move and the list keeps growing. Customer Barry Oldfield, of Thurnscoe: “We’re disgusted by it. We come here every week. There’s already too

many bookies in this area.� Manager Audrey Upperdine said: “I’ve not come across one person who wants this. Most people are worried nobody is going to listen to what they want and they’ll just do it anyway.� Coun Wraith said: “Everybody keeps complaining to us that we don’t want another bookies, we’ve got two, but on planning guidelines there’s nothing that says you can only have two.�

‘I WAS SENT HOME WITH A SUPERBUG’ BY STEPH JOHNSON A FRAIL pensioner with an infectious and potentially fatal superbug was discharged from Barnsley hospital and sent to a care home. Joan Caves, 76, was tested for cdifficile but taken by ambulance to Greenside House, Mapplewell, before the results were checked. She had been in hospital for several weeks following a fall and her family were told she was medically fit and had to leave. They are furious the hospital did not wait to find out what was wrong with Joan and fear others at the home were put at risk. Daughter Patricia, of Park Crescent, Royston said: “They just got rid of her as quickly as possible.” Son Barrie, of Victoria Road, Royston added: “They didn't want to solve the problem they just wanted to pass it on to somebody else.” Joan, who also contracted MRSA while she was in hospital, arrived at Greenside early on

Discharged: Joan Caves Saturday morning Patricia says the family were not warned about c-diff until a carer broke the news that she had it on Monday afternoon. Hospital policy dictates that homes are informed when tests have been carried out so staff can take precautions while they await results.

A hospital spokesman said he could not confirm whether Greenside was alerted because the staff involved were on leave. A spokesman for the PCT, which runs Greenside on behalf of the council, said no other residents or members of staff had been infected. Medical director Dr David Hicks says patients may be discharged before test results are known if it is the correct clinical decision. He added: “We apologise if we have not followed this procedure or provided Mrs Caves with the best care possible. “We will be seeking an early meeting with Mrs Caves' relatives to discuss this and see if there are any ways we can improve the care we give patients.” Joan now faces a search for a new home as Greenside, which is due to close, is only a stop gap. She lived at Highstone Mews for the three years before she fell, broke her shoulder and damaged her hip in November. Managers said they could not take her back because she needed the kind of care only a nursing

Worried and very unhappy: Barrie Caves and Patricia Train. Picture: Wes Hobson home could provide. A spokesman said Joan's best interests were a priority and added: “We asked for an official reassessment of Mrs Caves’ condition and level of care in November but unfortunately this has not yet happened.” However Patricia was present when an assessment took place in the

hospital and Joan’s needs were deemed to be residential. The council, which contributes to the cost of Joan’s care home fees, said it would not comment because Highstone is a private home. Patricia fears Joan, who had a stroke 14 years ago, will not recover from her ordeals.

“She was absolutely devastated when we told her she couldn't go home, she was screaming and frantically looking for a knife, she wanted to cut her throat. “She's changed so much it’s shocking, she's lost a lot of weight. She's given up, she's lost that sparkle in her eye, she wouldn't even give me a love.”

Firefighters called in after park arson attacks FIREFIGHTERS were called to Royston Park on New Year's Eve after the second arson attack in one week. It is thought a group of young people who may have been drinking in the park started a fire in the play area at about 9pm. It

was started near the slide, leaving areas of the soft safety floor of the play area damaged. A man who had been walking in the park said a number of rubbish bins had been set on fire near the skate park.

The man, who does not want to be named, said: “Someone had set bins on fire and tipped them out on the play area.” He said young people may have been drinking there, adding: “It looks like they've had a bit of a party and were getting shut of the evidence.” Coun Graham Kyte said: “It is deplorable. It is a much-valued play area and someone has gone and done something like this. It will be repaired.” A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said: “Deliberately started fires like this not only cause damage to property and put members of the public at risk, but also mean our

crews’ time and resources are taken up by fires which have been started just for someone else's entertainment”. Coun Roy Miller, Cabinet spokesperson for environmental services, said the remains of three burnedout wheelie bins had been found in the park since Christmas. He said: “As yet we have no indication as to who has set these bins alight, but I would remind whoever has done this that they are endangering lives and property with their thoughtless acts.” Anyone with information should contact the police or Regulatory Services on 772468.

The money was handed over at the Trades and Labour Club, Racecommon Road, Barnsley last Thursday. Maria, of Cockerham Avenue, Barnsley said: “I was happy when Spencer volunteered to donate his bone marrow because I would have waited months for a donor. I am fine now.” Chris said a second concert is being planned for June and he paid special tribute to Maria’s mum Patricia Dearnley, 43, whom he said had been a ‘rock for us all’.

He volunteered to donate bone marrow to his sister Maria, 13, to save her waiting months before she could have a transplant.

Pub plans on hold amid controversy BY GILLIAN PICKER A DECISION on a proposed development scheme to extend one of West Melton’s oldest pubs has been deferred until af ter Rotherham councillors have visited the site. The proposals for the P lough Inn, Melton High Street, include a detached building for guest accommodation and a rear extension. Coun Alan Atk in ask ed the P lanning Regulator y Board to defer a decision on w hether or not planning permission should be granted due to the number of objections and the scale of the proposals. “Due to the number of objections it would be beneficial to see the site,” he told board members. The site visit w ill be made on Thursday Januar y 24, prior to the next meeting. The proposal is to build a single storey detached building to

form guest accommodation of five en-suite rooms. The plan also includes a single storey rear extension to provide an extended k itchen, use of a function room as a restaurant, alterations to doors and w indow s, erection of a timber framed pergola attached to the existing conser vator y to provide al fresco dining, installation of photovoltaic solar panels to the roof elevation of the guest building and landscaping work s. P lanning officers recommended that the application should be granted as they consider the changes to be ‘modest in scale ..... and w ill not detract from the residential character or amenity’. The proper ty occupies a corner site and has 27 car park ing spaces (only one would be lost if the application is granted), as well as rear extensions.

MINERS’ DEAD REMEMBERED For former pitmen: George Tilley lays the wreath at the Grimethorpe Cenotaph.

A DARFIELD man has been accused of threatening unlawful violence. Andrew Paul Burnett, 27, of North Street pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared at Barnsley magistrates’ court. He elected to be tried at Sheffield Crown Court and was granted conditional bail. Burnett, a fork lift truck driver, had his case adjourned until February 25.

Pedallers raise funds MORE than ten staff and six members of the JJB health club and sports centre at the Peel Centre, off Harborough Hill Road, Barnsley have raised £531 for the children’s ward at Barnsley hospital. They took it in turns to pedal an exercise bike over a day.

She added: “Reaction so far gives us little to go on. If people have a view on this, for or against, we would be happy to receive them.” Residents should send their view s on the proposal to the Area Forum Office, Tow n Hall, Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2TA.

A FOOTPATH running between several tow n centre houses could be shut at night because of the drunk en antics of some revellers. Residents claim to have seen people having sex on the path between Victoria Road and Victoria Street and have found discarded needles. They also have complained to Barnsley Council about being disturbed by noisy drunk s walk ing home from tow n. Some have been spotted urinating on the path. Now councillors are considering closing it off at night to stop the antics and want to k now w hat other residents think of the idea Central ward area forum officer, Tony Hatterlsey, said: “Over the last year, we have had complaints via residents w ho live adjacent to the path and from the Central Conser vation Area Residents’ Association. “Councillors were reluctant to close it but said they would do a consultation.” Mr Hattersley said the path is poorly-lit and has a ‘dogleg’ w hich means pedestrians cannot see if anyone is lurk ing along the route.

When it comes to beds, George Crofts and David Taylor know just about all there is to know — they have been manufacturing and retailing them for many years and pride themselves on the quality and variety of their bed ranges and related products. The partners aim to offer customers the latest in bed technology and styles, and in their factory/showroom at 44 Bank Street, Mexborough, you will find an extensive range to suit all needs and budgets. Buying a bed is a very personal thing and they insist upon customers taking their time to choose. Their wealth of experience allows them to offer good advice on the various mattresses and bases to ensure you get the perfect combination. The collection includes the Maxi Store Ottoman bed,

whose mattress can be raised effortlessly to reveal a large storage space beneath and the innovative three-inone bed. This design features a base containing storage space plus a handy hideaway slatted base and mattress, which glides into the base and can easily be pulled out to form a single bed. This is also available in a single version whose spare base and mattress can be used as an extra single or can form a double bed. In addition there are electricallyoperated bed lifters which raise the mattress vertically and also at the head and foot, and are beneficial to those in a caring role who have to do a lot of lifting. Edwardian Bedding sells memory mattresses which were invented by NASA for astronauts. These slow return

mattresses mould to the body while sleeping and return to their original shape during the day. The whole mattress is slow return and as such can be turned, unlike combinations which have the function on one side only. Newly introduced are the Cool-Max mattresses which have been specially designed for those who prefer to feel cool during the night. They are covered in a fabric containing thousands of tiny perforations which, rather than retaining body moisture which makes the mattress warm, allows it to evaporate and keeps you cool. Slow return mattresses are also available with Cool-Max fabric. “So that we can offer our customers the latest styles and technology we keep abreast of trends by visiting all the major exhibitions,” said George. “It was at a recent

suppliers’ show we were asked if we could make a cool mattress. We contacted a Belgian suppliers who came up with the Cool-Max fabric; we think these mattresses will be popular.” In addition the company sells a wide range of bedsteads and headboards including faux leather and suede, Victorian-style and contemporary metal, and a variety of wooden designs. And if you want to co-ordinate your soft furnishings, headboards can be covered in your own fabric. Edwardian Bedding goes that extra step to provide first class customer service which includes the option of taking away your old bed or mattress. The factory/ showroom is just ten minutes’ drive away from Cortonwood shopping complex along the Dearne Valley Parkway.

FROM BERNABÉU TO BARNSLEY FC BY NATHAN HEMMINGHAM HE may not be able to speak a word of English – but Barnsley’s new signing Diego Leon has promised to bring a bit of ‘magic’ to Oakwell, after completing his free transfer from Swiss side Grasshoppers Zurich. The 24-year-old Spaniard honed his talents at one of the world’s biggest clubs – Real

Diego with Reds assistant boss Ryan Kidd.

Madrid – alongside David Beckham, Raul and Figo. And although Barnsley is not quite as glamorous as life at the Bernabéu, the tiny playmaker is hoping the skills he learned alongside the ‘Galacticos’ will help him become a firm favourite with the Oakwell crowd. Speaking with the help of defender Dennis Souza, who was acting as translator, Leon told the Chronicle: “It is great to come to Barnsley and play in England, the country which was first for football. “I am very happy to be here. The players have accepted me quickly and I already feel part of the group.” Leon is the latest star to join manager Simon Davey’s foreign revolution – and said he had no hesitation in signing for Barnsley.
