Gardener, 39, found dead A KEEN gardener and father-of-four was found dead in one of his greenhouses. Shaun Bisby and his youngest daughter Jessica, nine, kept an allotment to the rear of their home at Harold Avenue, Lundwood. Mr Bisby, 39, who worked at Safestyle windows, Wombwell, had been on the plot preparing for the new season. He was discovered on Sunday, February 10, and it is thought he might have been overcome by fumes from a paraffin heater. An inquest has been opened and adjourned.

BY ADAM CIVICO TEACHERS at a secondary school are staging a three-day strike this week as a dispute over pay has escalated. NUT members at Darton High School walked out yesterday morning and will not return to work until Friday. A second three-day stoppage is planned for next week unless the pay row can be resolved. The union’s Barnsley secretary Pete Bevis says his members have been forced into the action because the school’s management has reneged on a pay deal agreed in 2006. He says some senior teachers could have thousands cut from their salaries as a result of the school's refusal to honour the agreement. Mr Bevis said: “Responsibility for this unprecedented action by members of the NUT at Darton High School is entirely the fault of the school management. “NUT members do not wish to take strike action for a single day never mind three but have been forced into
this situation. Members of the NUT had every reason to expect that an agreement, freely entered into by the school management, would not be reneged on. “This is now not just an issue about salary loss but also about honesty, integrity and trust.” But headteacher Simon Hill says he is following national guidelines on pay and said he was disappointed strikes were being held. He said: “I am extremely surprised that a teachers' union would take the decision to try to close a school for so many days at such a crucial time for young people. “We are not talking about redundancies we are talking about a minor loss of pay because of a regrading.” He said the school would be open for different year groups on different days as the strike continues. Priority would be given to year 11 students, who are studying for their GCSE exams, and year nine students who will sit national exams this year. There are 60 teachers at the school, half of whom are members of that union.

ANGELA’S HOME IS HIT FOR A SIX BY MIKE COTTON
Distraught: Homeowner Angela Nayar whose home has suffered six car crashes while she has lived there. Below, the car just after it entered her front room, inset, the sign Angela made for her side entrance door in case it happens again.
ANGELA Nayar has made a sign to hang on her door telling the fire brigade how many people are in her house in case another car crashes into the front room. Six cars have smashed into the house while she has lived there. A driver lost control of a car on the corner of Station Road and Stonyford Road and ended up inside her Ings Road home last week. The sign on her side door – she does not use the front door because it keeps getting crashed into – says 'In the event of further impact on this house please rescue seven cats and (one) people', but there is also a dial which can be moved to show the correct number of people in the house at all times. Angela, 60, now plans to set the dial every time someone comes home, or a visitor arrives. She is terrified there

The sign on the door. could be another crash bringing the whole house down. In the latest crash the front of the car went through the wall into the front room and sent the front door flying off its hinges. A large amount of brickwork was dislodged and fire-fighters, fearing there could be a collapse, hurried Mrs Nayar out of her home and advised her not to go back in. She said: "I was asleep when it happened and by the time I came downstairs the police and fire brigade were already there. They were asking how many people were in the house so I decided I would make the sign in case it happens again. "It's the sixth time it's happened.

A RIDE-ON lawnmower worth £1,800 belonging to Darfield Junior Football Club has been stolen from a locked container near the pitch. The mower was less than a year old, and was paid for through fund-raising and subscriptions of the young players. But the club has no more money to buy a replacement and it was not insured. The club's Brian Lee said: "Thank you very much to the person who stole this from the young people of Darfield. I hope they see this and feel ashamed of themselves." The mower was red with a black seat. Anyone with information should call Barnsley police on 736030 and quote crime number 626.

I've gone past feeling devastated now. It must have felt like this during the war with the air raids. You're just waiting for the next hit all the time. But with me it's not bombs, it's waiting for the next car." The front of the house was propped up with metal jacks on Friday night by the council and steel shutters were put up to cover the car-shaped hole. This sixth crash is the third where a car has gone into the front room. Angela has not used it as a sitting room for several years since the first crash. She uses it like a shed to store bikes and tools. Angela said: "What I really want is some of those barriers they have on the motorway to stop cars hitting the house. And I really think something should be done to slow traffic down. It wasn't as bad before they resurfaced the road when there were bumps and potholes. They didn't go as fast then, but now it's like an airport runway. "I'm going to write to the highways department. I'd like them to come and look at the damage and tell me the road does not need traffic calming." Alan Carnall, assistant director for the council's highways department, said: "This matter has been raised by the residents who live around this corner. We have arranged for speed measuring devices to be installed in this location following which we will be looking to see what we can do to improve matters." He added that the council expects to resolve this matter in the next two to three months.

Church’s new altar uses ancient boundary stone
Cabinet approves Vodden nomination
The Boundary of the Cross was originally placed in Lady Wood but the stone was found in a farmer's field three years ago. A piece of St Augustine's bone will be placed in the altar in the Lady Chapel and will be consecrated by the Bishop of Pontefract, Tony Robinson, in a service at a later date.
Top pianist to play in church concert THE HOLY Trinity church in Wentworth will be treated to a performance by an internationally renowned musician. Castleford-born Jill Crossland will give a recital on the church's historic piano on March 1. She has recently appeared at the Vienna Musikve-

Mr Parkes urged people to be vigilant and report anything suspicious. Coun Bill Newman, Cabinet spokesman for development, said the fire was being investigated. He added: “At this early stage we can only state that the nature of any subsequent work to resolve the problem will depend on the findings of our investigation. Inspectors have visited the site and are in consultation with the fire service.”

But there are no funnels at the pit stack and a continual flow of methane from below ground level means it is floating above the surface. Methane gas has been lit in the area before and fire officers are trying to find out who owns the land to see if funnels can be installed . He added: “It is naturally occurring in the open. “I don't think it's a particular hazard but it is flammable and burns with a blue flame.”
THE nomination of a co-opted member on Cudworth and North East area forum has been approved by the council's Cabinet. Brierley Town Coun Alex Vodden was appointed as a replacement for the Mayor of Brierley, Mick Hanley, who resigned last month. Coun Hanley who stepped down because of work commitments said it would be unfair to continue in the position. It is now thought the council will also accept the move. Coun Vodden lost his seat on the borough council to Coun Dave North in the May elections last year but will sit on the top table as a co-opted member. Coun Vodden has said he will try to represent the people of Cudworth and the North East in the best way he can.

A NEW altar has been installed at a church in Grimethorpe using the 14th century stone plinth of the Boundary of the Cross. The Lady Stone which has provided the base for the altar in St Luke's Church was installed on Tuesday. Father Peter Needham said: “I'm thrilled to bits, it is a work of art.”
But if anyone comes along with a lighter it can cause a fire.” He said the colourless and odourless gas could only catch fire if it was ignited by a naked flame or spark. Mr Parkes said the methane was leaking from either the former pit or sewers through several grates in the ground. He added that large funnels are usually placed where the methane is leaking to allow it to vent off into the atmosphere.

BOGUS WATER BOARD OFFICERS ROB WIDOW, 86
Gladys Beaty, of Hoyland Common, was devastated when she discovered about £3,500 had been taken from a bedroom drawer. She had answered the door to a smartly dressed man who claimed he was from the water board and needed to check her water supply. The man pretended to turn her water off and distracted Gladys in the kitchen while it is believed a second man searched her bedroom.
‘I have worked hard all of my life and saved that money and look where I am now. They only left me the £10 that was in my purse.’ The retired home help wept as she told the Chronicle the ordeal had terrified her. She said: “I can't sleep any more. I'm up at 4am because of it. I have never been in this state before. “I can’t stop thinking about it. I haven’t eaten in five days. “He asked my age and whether I lived on my own and kept me talking while the other one must have gone in. “I think they're lousy
buggers. I have worked hard all of my life and saved that money and look where I am now. They only left me the £10 that was in my purse. I don't even have enough to get a taxi to the shops.” Gladys said she had always kept the money in her bungalow so she could pay her bills straight away. The pensioner found it difficult to go to the bank in Hoyland regularly as she needed someone to go with her.

CALLOUS thieves posing as water board officers have left an 86-year-old widow too frightened to sleep after they stole more than £3,000 from her home.
She said: “My daughter and son-in-law live in Leeds and work so they can't come and I need someone to go with me. “I would warn people not to keep money in their house.” A similar burglary took place on nearby Rockingham Street where three men said they were repairing the chimney and stole £1,000 from an elderly couple. An 85-year-old woman on Springfield Road, Hoyland, had £200 taken by men claiming to be from the water board. Neighbourhood watch co-ordinator Margaret Hague said the elderly in particular had to look out for one another. She said: “We have to get it through to people that they have to look after their own safety. “I would advise people to keep the chain on their door and not open it unless they know they're expecting someone. If they don't like the look of them then they should

Bad day on Trainline for Robert BY STEPH JOHNSON IT seemed a simple enough plan. Town centre newsagent Robert Teal and friends wanted to travel to Liverpool by train. He booked and paid for the tickets with Trainline.com two weeks before the game and as he hit the send button he began to look forward to a day out without the hassle of the motorway. But when a confirmation e-mail arrived minutes later the mailing address was Darton's boarded up and flooded out post office, a few doors down from his home. Robert couldn't convince Trainline staff their computer system had made an error and was told to call back the day before travel if the tickets didn't turn up. Concerned, he rang back three days before the big match only to discover the tickets would not be reissued as he didn't live at
the mailing address - and he couldn’t get a refund without returning them. Then Robert found out his bank details were on another person’s Trainline account. He used a friend’s computer to set up his own account but the bookings ended up listed with David Jenkins’ transactions.

It’s pies, peas and pints to attract caring men BY JULIAN THORPE THE COUNCIL is using footy, beer and pies to encourage men to take up a career in childcare. A group of male childcare workers spoke to men at a meeting in Oakwell on Wednesday, when they were encouraged with a free pint, a Barnsley FC goody bag and pie and peas. The aim was to encourage them to go into

the profession, which is at present dominated by women. Barnsley FC’s football in the community worker, Wayne Bullimore was among the speakers, along with male workers from nurseries across the borough. A council spokesman said: “There is a common preconception that looking after children is women’s work but this is far from true.”
BABY TWINS EVACUATED BY EMMA SPENCER TWENTY residents, including eight children and three week-old twins, were evacuated in below zero temperatures when a neighbour’s van caught fire. The families on Coltfield, Birdwell, were asked to leave on Tuesday morning because of fears that heat from the fire could cause the gas cylinders in the works van to explode. People were taken to Tankersley Manor to keep warm and provided with breakfast and drinks
while fire crews spent the day at the scene cooling the cylinders and police cordoned off the street. The drama unfolded at about 6.30am on Tuesday as Chris Woodhouse, a refrigeration engineer, de-iced the van and his partner’s car before leaving for work. He popped back into the house to say ‘bye’ to Amanda Gore and their five -month- old baby Oliver but when he went back outside the van was on fire and he heard two bangs. Amanda said: “He has de-iced
the cars every morning since it has been frosty. It was all quite a shock, I had sorted Oliver out; Chris said he was going and I went upstairs to get dressed. “I heard him banging on the back door and just thought he had forgot something but he said ‘the van’s on fire, ring the fire brigade, it’s going to go up, get out now." Another neighbour, Matthew Lowe was leaving for work around the same time and heard an explosion. He said: “I ran out to see what it was and just saw all these flames
and the van on fire. I put the kids in the car with the heaters on, phoned the fire brigade but they were already on their way.” Police from Hoyland SNT and fire crews from Tankerlsey and Barnsley were at the scene until 5pm working in freezing fog and temperatures as low as minus 4.

LANDLORDS FACING BAN ON PAVEMENT SMOKERS BY ADAM CIVICO SMOKING will be banned on the street outside pubs and cafes in the town centre, if new guidelines published by Barnsley Council are adopted. It is thought Barnsley could become the first town in the country to adopt the hard-line approach. Landlords and cafe owners would face having their £250-a-year street cafe licence revoked – it allows them to serve alcohol on the pavement outside their premises – if customers disobey the regulations. The new rules, contained in a council document titled ‘Guidelines for street cafes: Barnsley town centre’, state: “As of
April 1, the licensed cafe area will be a nosmoking area. “It will be the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that customers are reminded of this. If it is noted that on three separate occasions customers are witnessed to be smoking, then the licence will be revoked.” Drinkers would still be allowed to smoke outside pubs in private beer gardens. But shocked licensees think the move is a step too far. Paul McNicholas runs Durty O’Dwyer’s Irish pub and is chairman of the town centre pubwatch which is objecting to the guidelines. He is ready to challenge the council over the issue. He said: “I feel so strongly about this I would be prepared to go to court. There is

no other area in the country even contemplating it. It would be difficult to enforce.” He said pubwatch members had been stunned when the issue was discussed at a meeting last Thursday. Paul has spent about £9,000 on awnings, tables and heaters so punters can sit outside his pub on Market Hill and enjoy a pint and a cig. “Having the outside area has compensated me and evened things out since the smoking ban. These new guidelines could be the difference between bars surviving and not.” Walkabout manager Greg Harding echoed his views. He has a street drinking area in front of the pub at the junction of Market Hill and Shambles Street but says the new rules would make it untenable. “I think it is ridiculous. The council offered us the lease of that land to get people out front and bring a bit of colour to the town. This rule would make it untenable for us to continue taking this space from the council.” The idea originated from the council’s environmental department, headed by Coun Roy Miller, and does have tentative support from Lucorum manager, Jim Barrell. He said: “We have an outside garden area at the back where people can smoke. If the council were to adopt the ban we would accept it and we are reasonably supportive.” Coun Miller said the proposal was still at consultation stage and the booklet had been produced so licensees could make informed comments.

Talking about your money worries is hard. Keeping quiet makes things worse WHEN she couldn’t work because of a wrist injury, Sharon decided she would borrow some money and pay it back once she was better. But Sharon’s injury didn’t improve and three years later the supermarket cashier was still out of work. She was also saddled with a £1,000 debt that she was repaying at £37 a week. Two years later she had paid £3,800, but still owed £600. “It seemed like a good idea at the time. I really needed the money,” she said. “But with three children and being a single parent, it was crippling.” Sharon borrowed the cash from a doorstep lender who regularly knocked on doors on her estate. But Sharon soon realised she couldn’t cover the debt and that she was paying back more than three times the amount she had borrowed. “Things started to get really stressful. All I could think about was how I was going to get the money to pay this debt. We had to start scrimping on food and I was really worried I wasn’t going to be able to pay the rent.”
It was thanks to an old school friend that Sharon found a way out. “They had borrowed money from the local credit union,” she said. “I didn’t know anything about them, but when I went along it was eyeopening. “They were really friendly and didn’t judge me. They gave me a loan to repay the doorstep lender. I then repaid them at a much more manageable rate.” Sharon also started saving a small amount each week with the credit union so by the time it came to Christmas she had £300 put by. “It was fantastic. I bought the kids some great toys and bought new decorations to make the house look really special.” The confidence this gave Sharon helped her get a new job working in a local shop. If you are in a similar situation to Sharon there is a way out. Call the free Now Let’s Talk Money helpline on 0800 012 1656 now. You’ll be put in contact with people in your area who can help you. The advice is free and so is the call.

This table compares the cost of borrowing £500 over 52 weeks from three different types of lenders. As you can see, you could save a lot by borrowing from somewhere like a credit union.
There is a way out. Call us free on 0800 012 1656 TRYING to cope with money problems on your own can be very stressful. If you ignore your money worries, it usually makes them worse. You may think you need a loan, but perhaps all you need is advice on how to make your money go further. ‘now let’s talk money’ is a free service provided by the government to help people who are on low incomes. When you phone us we’ll help you to find local organisations that can help you with your money problems. If you do need to borrow money you need to be careful about who you borrow it from. Some lenders are illegal and charge very high interest rates, which
means you end up paying back much more than you borrowed. If you phone us, we can tell you about lenders near to you, such as credit unions, who won’t charge you as much. You might think a bank account isn’t for you -- maybe you’ve tried before and been turned down. But it could help you save money. We can make sure you talk to the right people who will help you open a basic bank account for as little as £1. This means you’ll be able to get money off your household bills by paying through direct debit, take money out of cash machines free of charge and pay cheques in without getting charged.
£13,000 funding secured for new play area BALKLEY Lane is to get a £13,000 new play area after councillors agreed to put £1,100 towards the cost. Darfield Community Association managed to secure a £3,315 contribution from the Primary Care Trust and £8,540 from Waste Recycling charitable fund WREN. Darfield councillors agreed to make up the shortfall. The play area is likely to include swings, a

Community Association chair Glenda Sheppard said: "I'm absolutely thrilled it can finally go ahead, but I'm disappointed elected members deliberated for so long. They have delayed the project." Coun Ron Fisher said: "There is a very large demand in the area for a very limited amount of money."
