Children have a ball at summer camp
4 Ex-Barnsley player to host special event

TODDLER Bethany Rosser was the youngest musician performing on keyboard and percussion at a concert in Worsbrough.
THE FIRST: The first close-up colour photographs of the surface of Mars were taken In 1976 by the unmanned American spacecraft Viking II. THE LAST: The last protesting inmates at Hull's top-security prison surrendered after 67 hours on the rampage in 1976.
She shared the stage with ‘junior’ clarinettist Jean Johnson, more than 70 years her senior, and other students from a town centre music school. It was Bethany’s first public performance, and only the second for Jean, of Main Street, Wombwell, who began learning clarinet less than two years ago. Bethany is learning to read and play music as she is learning to read and speak English. Teacher Helen Madden said: “Two is very early to be learning, I know that. But it is working.” Bethany is the youngest of a group of five toddlers in Helen’s Early Learning group. She teaches them traditional printed music using flash cards and fun games. She said: “Having kids myself, I

thought if they can learn to read and write when they’re two or three, and they can start to learn another language, and if they do it in a fun way, there’s no reason why they can’t learn music as well.” The toddlers learn the basics on piano and percussion instruments. They can write their own rhythms and tunes using the printed notes, and then play them back. Helen, of Opus School of Music, Dean Street, said: “I asked one three-year-old to show me where ‘middle C’ was and she asked me if I wanted it in treble clef or bass clef. “They understand loud and soft, high and low pitch, and how to follow a conductor. “They even know the difference between major and minor, although so far they mostly just understand it as happy sounds or Oldest and youngest: musicians in concert last Friday, Jean Johnson and Bethany Rosser.

Car thieves drive stolen Jeep into house
FAMILY’S HERITAGE IS READY TO ROLL BY CARLA GEORGE
A JEEP stolen from Wombwell High Street crashed into a house when thieves ran out of petrol. Mrs Gillian Davis, 43, of Orchard Street, was at a wedding when the incident occurred but returned to find several bricks out of place and her front door jammed. She said: “I got home at about 11pm and saw dust and debris outside the house. I couldn’t get in through the front door as the impact had jammed it shut. “I was so angry when neighbours told me what had happened, I wish I had been in so I could have caught them.” An eye-witness said the car veered into the house when it appeared to run out of petrol. Two youths then jumped out and ran away. A neighbour said: “There was a loud bang and the house shook slightly, my daughter came running through wondering what had happened.” Mrs Davis said: “I am glad it wasn’t going at full speed as there would have been much more damage.” Police are investigating. The vehicle was owned by a local man.

Travelling light: The traditional open lot bow-top wagon similar to those that travellers would have lived in the early 1900s.
Margaret and Archie Smith, of George Street, Low Valley, have had the wagon for two years and are in the final stages of completion. Mrs Smith said: “We are not sure how old it actually is but it could be getting on towards 100 years. “It has taken a lot of time to restore it as the paint work is extremely intricate and unfortunately it suffered damage in the floods.” Although open lot wagons are no longer used by travellers the couple want to use the restored vehicle to teach their children about their heritage. Mrs Smith said: “Our grandchildren don’t know anything about how we lived and where the family comes from but with this we can bring the stories to life. “My husband was born in a similar wagon and travelled with no electricity, no water and no television. All the cooking would have been done outside on an open fire.” The restoration is hoped to be completed in the new year when the family will take it to exhibitions living as they would have done in the early 1900s. She said: “Obviously we can’t actually travel in it as we would have done as the roads are now too dangerous. “However we will live in the wagon, which can sleep six and take part in activities such as peg making and weaving baskets for our traditional flower displays.” The council has invited them to attend the annual exhibition of different ethnic groups which takes place at the town hall.

North Korean ambassador Ja Song Nam was a guest at the opening of the North Korean art show. He and second secretary Yung Chol are welcomed by arts development officer Julie Gaskell and Coun Bill Newman.
NORTH KOREA ON VIEW AT COOPER BY IAN THOMPSON IGNORE the brutal, propaganda posters in the middle bit of the Cooper Gallery show of North Korean art. Dwell instead on the paintings in this fascinating exhibition if you want a better idea of the state of the art there. The show is being staged as the
country opens to Western influences. From the evidence of this exhibition, those influences have been there for years. Some of the paintings would not look out of place in the 19th century galleries of Tate Britain in London. Tak Hyo Yon's '1st June (Children's Day)' has the dreamy quality of a painting by Frederick Lord Leighton. Son U Yong's 'Onjongli Evening of Mount Kumganang' is breath-
takingly beautiful. Other paintings, such as Tak Hy Hion's 'Pavilion in Park Ryan Gang' and Kim Song Ryong's 'Side of Botang River', are Impressionistic in style and would adorn the walls of The Louvre. 'Army Song of Victory' by Cha Chayong Ho has the look of a frame from one of those war 'Commando' magazines that were on sale to British kids in the
1960s. The show. 'Art for the State' runs until October 11. ■ Don't miss 'The Romance of the Sea in the gallery's Fox Wing. Dramatic marine paintings by Paris-born Eugene Isabey are intermingled with work by Thomas Luny, Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding, William Roxby Beverley and others.
Closure of estate post office would be ‘devastating’ CLOSING Worsbrough Common post office would have a devastating effect on the estate, it has been claimed. The Highstone Road post office is one of 15 across Barnsley recommended for closure and the Worsbrough Common Community Association has started a protest petition. Association member Yvonne Saunders said it was essential it stayed open. “The post office is the hub of the community. We are in a bad position because we are on a hill and the nearest post office is Agnes Road. “Worsbrough Common is deprived and this is a service we cannot afford to lose. “The post office acts as everything, people get chatting in there and problems get sorted. “It would be devastating to us if it closes and will have a big impact.” Mrs Saunders is worried elderly residents would struggle to get to the other post office. Coun Malcolm Price shares her concern and said: “Worsbrough Common is a well-used post office with up to 800 customers a week. With the regeneration of the estate we certainly wanted a post office to go within the community centre but the Post Office is not listening.” The future of Worsbrough Common and Doncaster Road post offices was discussed at an area forum meeting last Monday. Coun Mike Stokes represents the Central ward which includes Doncaster Road. He said: “The case for keeping Doncaster Road post office open is good because there are a lot of people dependant on it. “The alternative is going to Stairfoot and crossing Doncaster Road twice. That is not an easy task, particularly if the people doing it are mothers with prams or the elderly.”
The Post Office announced its intention to close 15 Barnsley post offices four weeks ago. Statistics from the Post Office justifying its stance claim both Worsbrough Common and Doncaster Road post offices are 0.9 miles from the alternative office on Agnes Road. National criteria state urban communities should be “within one mile of the nearest post office” and therefore both are recommended for closure. Consultation continues until September 22, write to: Adrian Wales, Network Development Manager, Network Change Programme Office, Post Office Ltd, Freepost, Network Change, or e-mail: network.change @postoffice.co.uk. A group of councillors who scrutinises regeneration policy will discuss the proposed post office closures tomorrow. Chairman Dick Wraith said it was an emotive subject. “If there are specific examples where we feel there has been any error or oversight, we will challenge it.” The meeting will be held at 1pm in the town hall and is open to the public.

CARING KIDS ENJOY WELL-EARNED BREAK BY JOANNE WRIGHT
Wild child: Daphine Dube, nine, (left) and Drew Dodsworth, 10. Pictures: Jamie Lorriman
CHILDREN from across Barnsley were climbing high at a free summer camp at the Peak Venture Centre near Penistone. The 140 children, who would not have had a summer holiday, spent a week taking part in activities such as quad biking, rope climbing and abseiling. The seven to 11-year-olds included two groups of young carers, children who look after parents, some who have brothers or sisters at Bluebell Wood hospice and a group of Aspergers’ sufferers. Assistant camp director Collette Hardy said it was a great opportunity for the children, some of whom had been through a lot for their age. One camper Drew, 10, of Darfield
said: “We have done stuff I’ve never done before and it’s been lots of fun. Quad biking is my favourite but there is always something going on like games and singing.” The camp was financed by the Scout Dike Trust to give the disadvantaged youngsters a break from their everyday life. Ron Carbutt, chairman of the charity, said: “This summer camp is for local children deserving of a break away from home to enjoy having fun with plenty of exercise and fresh air and with a taste of adventure with children their own age. “This is our first summer camp and a concept we will develop in future years.” There will be a firework display tonight to mark the end of the week’s events.
Barnsley Jobfair NO one said returning to work was easy. But if you want to return to work there is help and advice available. On Wednesday 10th September Barnsley Work and Skills Board and Jobcentre Plus are holding a Jobfair at Barnsley YMCA. The Barnsley Jobfair will provide you with all you need to return to work including the chance to meet local employers with job vacancies, advice on writing your CV and help with interview techniques. But before you come to the jobfair here are some top ten tips to get you started: 1. Be realistic about job opportunities that are available to you. If you have been out of work for a while you might not be able to return to work at the same level or you may need training. Remember once you have a job it is easier to work your way up through the company gaining experience and training as you work. 2. Really look at the skills that companies are crying out for and make sure you're offering them or look at how to get the skills they need. A4E and other advisors will be at the Barnsley Jobfair to help you to find the right course for you and your future job. 3. Know what basic salary rates are and what the average salary for your job is. 4. Seek advice – no matter how much you think you know someone else may know more. Extra advice about your CV, interview style or presentation can make the difference. JobCentre Plus and other advisors will be at the Barnsley Jobfair to help you to write your CV for your next job. 5. Be prepared. It's not always the best candidate that gets the job, it's often the best prepared candidate. Research the companies just as you would for an interview. You'll then be able to tell on why you want to work for the organisation and what you can do for them. 6. Consider the temporary market – companies may prefer to recruit on a temporary basis for their own flexibility and this can be a good way into a full time opportunity. 7. A smile, a strong handshake, and a positive attitude. First impressions are vital. Approach an employer, smile, and offer your hand when you introduce yourself. Don't under dress - dress accordingly because a jobfair is a professional activity – perhaps your first contact with a future employer. 8. Grab a coffee – use your network. Networking with former colleagues, advisors and friends can open up doors to you. 9. Keep your head down – if you don't like your job, stay positive and productive and get on with it. 10. Come to the Jobfair at Barnsley YMCA on Wednesday 10th September 2008.

Curfew Monument spoilt in for bike ‘wanton vandalism’ damage A THURNSCOE man who took a mountain bike jumped up and down on it when he was asked to give it back, Barnsley magistrates’ court was told.
The brick monument is at the rear of Hanson’s Stairfoot brickworks and commemorates the ‘Mansfield marine band’ a layer of fossil bearing clay laid down when Barnsley was covered by a prehistoric equatorial forest. The monument was built eight years ago and has occasionally been sprayed with graffiti but last weekend yobs have smashed it to pieces. Hanson’s works manager Dave Mason was alerted to the damage on Monday morning. He said: “I have a stockyard supervisor, Paul Crew,
John William Bortoft, 22, of Hickleton Terrace also picked up the bike and threw it on the floor, said Joanne Milner, prosecuting. She said the bike’s owner had ridden it to a friend’s, left it in a back garden and later noticed it was missing. Bortoft had admitted damage at an earlier hearing. Walter Brook, defending, said Bortoft, who had learning difficulties, had to realise that drinking was contributing to his offending. District judge Michael Rosenberg imposed a nine month community order including supervision and a 28 day curfew. He said: “You are going to right way to getting yourself locked up. You cannot go on committing offences and blaming learning difficulties. You cannot go on drinking large quantities of alcohol. “You may say that you go barmy if you do not have a drink. The point of the curfew is to get you to cut down your intake.” Bortoft was also ordered to pay £35 in compensation.
who lives on Albany Close and sometimes walks in to work along the transPennine trail. He'd seen it and told me to have a look, I couldn’t believe it was so bad. “If you have youngsters walking past you get some graffiti but you cannot cause that much damage with your bare hands. It’s got to have taken half an hour to rip to pieces like that.” Coun Fred Clowery was appalled by the vandalism and said the bowling pavilion at Ardsley had also been damaged. He said problems with vandalism had peaked during the holidays. “Over the last couple of weeks they have pulled about a square metre of bricks from the exterior wall at the bowling pavil-
Hanson’s closes down WORKERS at Hanson's Stairfoot brickworks clocked off for the last time on Friday as the plant was mothballed because of the credit crunch. The closure means 75 staff have been laid off and company spokesman David Weeks said it is unlikely the works will reopen until at least 2010. “It looks as though we are in for 18 months of pain until we emerge from the other side. “Our business is demand led and we have to be able
to meet changes in demand. We are hoping we will be ready for the upturn when it comes." He said brick sales had slumped 30 percent since January last year. “We can survive this kind of climate but it means tough decisions have to be made. We want to thank everybody who has worked at the Stairfoot plant over the years and say how sorry we are it has come to this.”

Why should I have my cat neutered: Males/Toms Neutering/Castration helps to prevent: 1) Straying – un neutered Toms love to roam and may get injured in car accidents 2) Spraying foul smelling urine –usually in the house!! 3) Fighting – so reduces disease and abscesses. Especially the spread of FelineLeukaemia. (Aids in cats) 4) Prevents the siring of often unwanted litters. However the longer tom cat is left to spray and fight, the less likely neutering will stop it. Females/Queens Neutering, or spraying prevents: 1) Unplanned Litters 2) Constant ‘Calling’ generally 1 week in every 2-3 until she is mated. During calling she may display unsociable behaviour, which is often manifest as loud and persistent crying, and frequent rubbing and rolling on the floor. Such behaviour and her scent will attract pestering tomcat from miles around.3) Will remove the risk of uterine infection. 4) May reduce the future risk of breast cancer developing. There is no medical reason for letting your cat have a litter before she is neutered. When should I have my cat neutered? It is desirable to neuter before puberty usually both male and female cats are neutered at around 5-6 months old. Cats can be neutered at any age. It is possible to neuter when pregnant. What adverse effects might neutering have on my cat? In the vast majority of cases no adverse effects are noted following neutering. Some neutered animals have a tendency to put on excess weight by storing surplus fat. Such pets require a balanced diet and should not be over-fed. In certain cats, notably Siamese, the hair that grows back over an operation site may be noticeably darker, due to a difference in the skin temperature. This darker patch may grow out with the following moult as the hair is replaced. Spaying through the midline rather than the flank will make this unnoticeable.

MENTAL UNIT FIRM DEFENDS DECISION BY EMMA SPENCER THE COMPANY behind a mental hospital being built in Barnsley has defended its plans amid growing concern from the public and councillors. Last week Coun Mike Stokes and resident Arthur Mitchell said they were alarmed by Voyage Care’s proposals to drop a community centre from the development on the former Pindar Oaks hospital, off Sheffield Road, in favour of building more units. But Paul Constable, the company’s development director, said the firm wouldn’t put anyone at risk. He told the Chronicle that patients wouldn’t be young offenders but would have low level learning disabilities such as autism or maybe suffer depression or psychotic
‘We would not put any client in there that we felt we couldn't manage and wouldn't put anybody at risk within the hospital or outside’ episodes. The youngsters will be admitted from within a 50-mile radius of the town, having been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and are expected to live at the site for between 18 months and three years depending on the level of care and treatment they need. The 11 new units proposed instead of the community centre will provide temporary accommodation for discharged patients before they move back into their own homes. Mr Constable said: “It is a second stage so they can come from a hospi-
Youngsters’ art is on street level MOVE over Jackson Pollack...there are some new street artists in town. Kids dabbled in the highbrow technique when they teamed up with artists Peter Deakin and Vera Peternko to create some colour pieces outside shops in the town centre last week. Youngsters were given the challenge of making a self-portrait picture using projecting techniques and acetate and then re-creating the image on the pavement, much to the amusement of shoppers passing by. Peter said: “The kids loved it and that is what art is all about. “They seemed to enjoy being able to draw and paint outside so people could see what they were doing. “We’ve definitely got some good little artists in the town.” It was organised as part of a project being run by the youth service and YMCA to provide a range of fun activities for kids over the summer.
tal setting and maintain a high level of support and become more independent, confident and secure before they move back into their own home. “People may have learning disabilities but find it difficult to manage independently and as a consequence would be a danger to themselves either through self-harm or mixing with the wrong kind of people and engaging in activity which would put them at risk of abuse from other people. “We are very conscious that it does generate anxiety and concern locally but we would not put any client in there that we felt we couldn't manage and wouldn't put anybody at risk within the hospital or outside.” Work on the £6m project is expected to be finished in March/April time and open by May.

ON THIS DAY... ■ Britain and France declared war on Germany in 1939 following the Nazi’s invasion of Poland two days earlier. Four years later the war continued and British troops, led by Field Marshall Montgomery, landed on the ‘toe’ of Italy on this day in 1943.In 1912 rulers in New York were seeking new motoring laws, following 423 deaths in the previous year. ■ The Fair Isle in northern Scotland was bought by the National Trust in 1954. It was more inter-
ested in the islands bird sanctuary not the famous knitted sweaters. ■ September 3 has been a day for tragedies. In 1984 1,300 were killed as a typhoon battered the Philippines, in 1998 a Swissair plane from New York to Geneva crashed in the sea off the coast of Nova Scotia and in 2004 more than 200 died after a three-day siege in a Russian school came to an end.
■ In 1888 George Eastman patented his roll film camera and registered the Kodak name. ■ A new land speed record was set by Malcolm Campbell in the Bluebird at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, in 1935. The car averaged 301mph.
■ The Swedish switched from driving on the left to the right-hand side of the road in 1967.
■ First breath: 1965 Charlie Sheen (Carlos Irwin Estevez), American actor.
■ Richard - known as Richard Lionheart - was crowned King of England at Westminster Abbey in 1189.
■ Last breath: 1658 Oliver Cromwell, English soldier and statesman.

Jive Talking: Danielle Steers, 17, who will perform on stage with a Bee Gees tribute act.
Dreams of the West End A BARNSLEY singer has landed a gig singing with a professional BeeGees tribute band even though she’s a girl. Danielle Steers, 17, of Brettas Park, Monk Bretton, will sing a selection of songs originally written by the Bee Gees for other artistes, like Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand and Dionne Warwick, when Jive Talking comes to Barnsley in October. She said: “I knew they sometimes had guests sing with them so I sent my CD off to the band’s agent and they asked me to sing.” Danielle has her sights on a career on the West End stage. She is about to start the second year of a three-year course at the SLP stage school in Leeds. She said: “Ever since I was little it’s
been a huge ambition for me to make it to the West End. But to be honest I’d sing anywhere really. I just love performing.” Danielle will also perform her own concert, an evening with Danielle Steers and Guests, at the Academy Theatre next week. She hopes it will raise some money because it costs her thousands of pounds each year for her course in fees, uniform, equipment and travel. Earlier in the summer she won two talent shows netting prize money of £3,000. She was won about 20 singing competitions so far. The Jive Talking show is on October 9 at the Academy Theatre in Birdwell. Danielle’s own show is on Sunday September 7. For tickets call 744442.

SECOND NIGHTCLUB FOR TOWN ‘BUDDIES’ BY MIKE COTTON A NIGHTCLUB started for people with learning and physical disabilities has been so successful it is opening in a second venue next month. Buddies is run once a month at the Sturdy Lads, Monk Bretton, for about 70 adults and their carers. It attracted attention from the national media and several cash donations after the idea was reported in the Chronicle in May. Next month a ‘sister club’ night
will be launched at the Dale Tavern at Worsbrough on alternate fortnights to that in Monk Bretton. The original idea came from Sybil Davey, 77, of Eaden Crescent, Hoyland, whose daughter Lorraine has Down’s Syndrome. She said: “We’ve done really really well, We’ve had calls from places out of town like Doncaster and Huddersfield. “But not everyone from the Worsbrough side of Barnsley can get to Monk Bretton that easily, so we’ve decided to do another one at the
Dale Tavern. We’ve got four of the members with disabilities on the committee now. I said they’d end up running it themselves and they are starting to already.” Sybil decided to start the club because Lorraine, 44, would like to go clubbing but would not be comfortable in an ordinary town centre club. Buddies is open from 6.30pm on the first Tuesday of each month at the Sturdy Lads, and on the third Tuesday at the Dale Tavern. The entry fee of £4 includes entry to the raffle.
Arty bunch: Showing off their ‘crafty’ kites after a craftwork session at Worsbrough Mill last Thursday are Anders Holmes, Ella-Louise Horner, Travis Gill and Robyn Leah Pattison. Picture: Wes Hobson

THERE are a lot of books available for children to help them decide which pet is right for them. The right book would be great at explaining exactly how much work is involved with a particular pet. This will help to stimulate the discussions you’ll need to make sure that the new animal doesn’t become a one-minute wonder – it’ll need care throughout its life, not just in the first week. It’s fairly obvious, but do not give an animal to your child as a surprise present because unless the child really wants to own it they’ll be bored after a week and you’ll be doing hutch clear outs on your own in the rain. See whether you can agree to your child being responsible for certain elements of the animal’s care. It’s not a good idea to ask young children to be clear out cat litter trays, but they can certainly put food down for the cat and wash dirty bowls. Ensuring that there’s always clean, fresh water is another excellent job that will make your child feel in charge. You will probably need to remind your child to take care of their animals, and sometimes it feels easier just to do it yourself, but do persevere because animals bond to those that feed them and most animals will return affection at least to some extent. It’s important to check whether any member of the family is likely to have allergies brought on by the new pet. If you’re concerned, it might be better to stick with outside pets or fish. Together, use the internet to find interesting sites and information on animals. There are a lot of interesting sites out there that will give your children insight into what’s involved in looking after the pet they’d love to own. Allow your children to name pets themselves. You may end up with really silly names, like Boing Boing the rabbit in our case, but it will really help your child to know that it’s theirs and that with ownership comes responsibility. Sarah Sadler is the founder of the family stationer y company, Organised Mum.

Young Brits shun British seaside TODAY’S children are unlikely to grow up with memories of taking a good old-fashioned jaunt to the British seaside.
One in ten youngsters has never visited a UK beach, a survey by hotel chain Travelodge has revealed. The poll, of 2,000 children aged between five and 12, revealed that more young Brits have travelled to European
resorts than British coastal destinations and that scores of youngsters are stumped when it comes to the location of many famous seaside towns. Further findings revealed that 78 per cent of British children own a passport and that youngsters favour foreign holiday hotspots over doorstep holiday locations. Travelodge operations

director, Paul Anstey, said: “Our consumer research shows that 30 per cent of holidaymakers are switching from foreign to British holidays this summer due to the credit crunch, soaring air fares and the strong Euro. “This means there is no better time than now to show our children how much fun a British seaside holiday can be. “Within the last decade, parents have been lured
by budget airlines to overlook what is on their doorstep in favour of foreign shores. “The real cost of these trips has resulted in youngsters not appreciating their heritage and not knowing what makes Britain so great. “If this trend continues, we are in danger of the next generation of holidaymakers not investing in British tourism, which is vital for the growth of the

industry.” Tom Wright, chief executive of Britain’s official travel and tourism guide Visitbritain, said: “Travelodge’s research highlights that it’s vital we make children aware of the fantastic destinations on their own doorstep. “As the next generation of travellers, we have to encourage their appreciation of a British holiday and ensure the future success of our industry.” Travelodge also conducted an independent study among 4,000 adults to gain their views on British seaside holidays, and key findings revealed that 88 per cent of us think it’s important to preserve the heritage of the British seaside and that 81 per cent of us grew up holidaying at the seaside. Our top five favourite British seaside locations
are Cornwall, Blackpool, Brighton, Torbay and Skegness. To support its findings Travelodge has launched a Save our Seaside appeal to help revive some of our coastal towns. To launch the campaign, Travelodge will spend £150m by opening 55 new hotels in coastal locations across the UK, creating 1,000 new jobs. To support the campaign, just supply your name and email address as well as pledging how many additional nights you are willing to stay at a UK seaside location in 2009 to email@example.com. In return, Travelodge and other seaside businesses will send out information on the best deals available in 2009.

WHEN mum Sarah Sadler realised she’d forgotten to renew her car tax amid the chaos of everyday family life she knew it was high time for action. So she started her own business selling stylish but practical diaries, calendars, wall planners and organisers for women running busy homes and named, appropriately, Organised Mum! She said: “With the constant demands of the children, remembering important events such as taxing the car became so difficult.” Her answer was to write everything down but she just couldn’t find products that would accommodate her busy life. Undeterred, she designed her own! The Organised Mum range provides plenty of writing space for planning busy lives and also includes features and accessories to help even the busiest of families stay organised. It includes the new Family Life Book, which separates the week-to-view into a grid format, allowing each family member their own square per day. There's space for up to seven people but the flexible layout will adjust to any-
where from two to seven. It lasts for 16 months, starting with the new school term in September and lasting through to December of the following year. Other features include perforated shopping, meal planning and to-do lists, Christmas planning pages and themed stickers to highlight important events. Not surprisingly, Sarah’s number one panic-busting tip for busy mums is to do what she did and write everything down in one place. Another good idea is to get the children involved in organising themselves from an early age. Sarah said: “Our eight-year-old has a magnetic fridge organiser where she writes down what she needs to do each day, like remembering to take her kit for running club.” For more information, visit www.organised-mum.co.uk. There is also a blog full of ideas and information for frantic parents, at www.organisingbusylives.co.uk.

The maze is open from 12 noon till 6pm on weekends throughout September. There are also two special torchlight nights on September 5 and 6 September, from 7.30pm to 10.30pm.

Barnsley Honda –
with a handpicked selection of cars
BARNSLEY Honda has handpicked a wide selection of vehicles for its first ever Approved Used Car Weekend, which opens on Friday at 9am. There will be more than 60 specially selected vehicles for sale at the event, each chosen and prepared to a high standard to appeal to the discerning motorist who is looking for a quality used car, competitively priced. And as a special thank you to customers, the dealership has teamed up with the supermarket Morrisons to present £200 worth of Morrisons gift vouchers with every vehicle purchased, which can be exchanged for groceries and/or fuel at any Morrisons store.
There is also the chance to win a Morrisons trolley dash by entering a prize draw. Entry forms are available from Barnsley Honda or Morrisons Barnsley, where a representative from the dealership is exhibiting a brand new Honda throughout this week. All Honda event vehicles come with Barnsley Honda's Honda Happiness package, which consists of a minimum 12 months' unlimited warranty, a multi-point pre-sale check, European cover, and home, roadside and recovery assistance.
Tony Hargreaves and the team at Barnsley Honda.
The Power of Dreams: the Barnsley Honda showroom in Barugh Green.
Vehicles are also certified against accident, total loss, missing or stolen status. The dealership, in Whaley Road, Barugh Green, was established by Honda enthusiast Tony Hargreaves, who began his career with the brand 25 years ago as a trainee mechanic. Its showroom displays the cream of the current Honda range, from the compact Jazz to the advanced new Accord and the restyled Civic, and offers flexible finance options. Tony said: "We've been here for six years and we've gone from strength to strength to become one of the leading Honda sales dealerships in Yorkshire. "All credit goes to our staff, who are dedicated, customer-focused and passionate about the brand.
Between them, they've got over 100 years' combined experience with Honda!" The event opens at 9am on Friday and closes at 5pm on Sunday.
The Honda CR-V, the stylish sports utility.

We are fully registered and comply with all the Environmental Health regulations. We know where the veins are and where to make the piercing. "If the person is under 16 we ask them to come back with a parent or with proof of their parents' permission. "We always discuss piercing with our customers and if they don't know what they want or where they want it, we won't do it because that shows they haven't really thought about it."
Pro Bodys opened in Barnsley 12 years ago and in that time, David has ensured it remains scrupulously up to date with advances in fashion, technology and hygiene. Piercing technology is certainly everevolving. Nostrils and parts of the ear containing cartilage are no longer pierced using a gun - which is extremely painful. A new 'cartilage piercing stud' has been developed, a prepacked, disposable product, which causes only a tiny amount of discomfort. Pro Bodys can pierce any body part and it stocks the widest range of jewellery in the region. Current cutting edge trends include plugs and 'flesh tunnels', which stretch the lobes in the manner of various aboriginal cultures, and UV studs and plugs, favoured by clubbers for their funky glow effect. Many of the studs, plugs and banana bars etc are made from titanium, the light, strong, hypoallergenic metal which is used in orthopaedics to make pins for joints and in the aerospace industry for spacecraft! The studio has male and female piercers. Contact Pro Bodys in Barnsley on 01226 242591. David also has a studio in Bradford - contact 01274 725600.

classifiedentertainments A BODY piercing that went wrong would be enough to put most of us off for life - but for David Smith it was the catalyst for a career change. Spotting the gap in the market for a reputable piercing practitioner, he started to research the art and eventually set up his own business. Now, as you enter his studio, Pro Bodys in Graham's Orchard, with its clean, bright interior and smart product displays, it is immediately evident that he has fulfilled his ambition. Pro Bodys specialises in body piercing; it doesn't do anything else. This is so that it can maintain a clean, safe environment, offering customers the highest possible hygiene standards as well as specialist advice and after care. There is a separate room for piercing, pristine and spotless, with washable surfaces, and the latest sterilisation equipment on the market for clamps and jewellery. Each cannula used for piercing is in a sealed packet, opened in front of the customer and then disposed of hygienically. Said David: "There is more to it than just sticking a needle in or putting a stud through an ear.

People love coming to group and staying to group as they make so many friends and share loads of ideas, motivational tips and recipes.
Carol says… Many of my members, as well as myself, eat out regularly – they know with Slimming World you can enjoy a great social life and lose weight too!
Anita says… We have great fun in group. As well as taster nights, we share loads of food ideas and make sure everyone goes home with plenty of help and ideas for the week ahead.
Sue says… A few members in my group have diabetes and now, after losing weight, have found their medication has decreased and their health has improved!
What a difference a year makes …
Men love Slimming World's Food Optimising plan. Curry and booze allowed!
Looking at the photo on the right, it is hard to imagine that a year ago this dashing, handsome and super fit bloke was an unhappy, scared and unhealthy husband and father, but it’s true. Shaun Wheatley from Royston weighed in at over 20 stone and was waking up with pains in his chest and pins and needles feelings in his arms but it had to be indigestion from last night’s curry. Eventually he told his wife Bridget who was sure Shaun was going to have a heart attack.
Diane says… The mums to be and young mums in my group love the fact that they can attend throughout their pregnancy, with the consent of their midwife, and can continue whilst breast feeding with our special plan!!
Feeling really depressed Shaun popped into his local bakers to get a sandwich and saw a Slimming World Poster. Realising that he couldn’t do it alone he talked to Bridget about joining. This 20 stone larger than life construction worker from Barnsley joined the Royston Thursday 6.30pm evening Slimming World group and boy what a difference a year makes. First week Shaun lost seven and a half pounds but more than that he really felt he had found the way to lose the weight and keep it off and enjoy life. He says, “The group and Christine the consultant are just so supportive and helpful and the group is so much fun I can’t wait for Thursday evenings.” By December 2007 Shaun had lost 5 stone and was buying clothes from “normal” shops and going to the gym and felt brilliant. Christmas came and went and like so many of us he had a slight gain over the festive period but went straight back on the plan and the pounds kept falling away. So, voted man of the year in group this May, Shaun qualified for the semi finals on 13th July. Out of 5500 groups entered, he was shortlisted to 76, semi and then went through to the top ten, winning £500.00 and getting to cuddle Kym Marsh. Shaun says, “Getting this far in the competition was the icing on the cake for me but losing the weight and regaining my life has been a fantastic journey and I am proud to tell everyone that it’s Slimming World that has made it possible. I am not shy about letting all the guys I work with know that on a Thursday evening you will find me sitting in the Methodist Church, Midland Road, Royston, part of a Slimming World group.”
Joan says… Before joining, some of my members thought you couldn't eat meat and potatoes on the same plate. They were delighted to find out that wasn't true at all. Roast dinner, here we come!
Wendy says… Slimming World has a brilliant plan for teenagers, 11-15 year olds can come for free when accompanied by an adult – helping them learn great habits for lifelong health !

ACE MILLER SHOWS HIS BATTLING COLOURS BY NATHAN HEMMINGHAM YOUNG snooker ace Brett Miller moved into the top 100 in the ESB Pontins Pro-Am Tour following an impressive performance in the third stage at Pontins in Wales. The 21-year-old eventually lost to last year's teenager of the year Adam Duffy but not before he almost pulled off one of the comebacks of the season. The World Snooker Centre in Prestatyn is a new purpose-built venue played on world class cloths and Miller, despite not playing or training on a cloth to match, almost pulled off a stunning victory. In the best of seven frames, the Barnsley man made the perfect start by taking the first frame quite comfortably, reaching the 70s before Duffy failed to return to the table but the Sheffield cueman hit back to lead 3-1 despite the frames being tight.
However, it was at this stage the town's inter-county team captain showed his colours with a battling performance. A 32 break early in the fifth frame opened up a 48-0 lead and although Duffy responded with an identical break of his own, Brett came back to take the frame beyond his opponent's reach and narrow the deficit to 3-2. Miller was too good for Duffy in the next frame with a 40 break sealing a comfortable success to make it 3-3 and set-up a deciding frame thriller. And Brett took control from the start with a 15 break to start with before a miss into the middle pocket from Duffy opened up the table and gave Miller a chance. He duly took it with a 42 break and looked on course to take the frame but Miller then allowed Duffy back to the table when he failed with a long pot and Duffy duly pulled the score back within reach when he left
Miller with a snooker behind the blue with his target ball, the yellow, firmly on the cushion. Miller only needed the three baulk colours for victory and led by 10 at this stage but a miss with his first attempt narrowed the gap once more before hitting the yellow, via a different route, with his second attempt. That brought the yellow into play and after both exchanged visits to the table, Duffy produced an excellent shot to sink the yellow and then cleared up to the pink to take the frame despite the efforts of Miller. It was harsh on Miller but he took plenty of heart from the comeback. He has lost all three of his opening matches but has held his own on the top class tables and not looked out of place despite not being able to train on similar standard cloths. He is now looking at what options are available in South Yorkshire regarding training as he bids to continue his rise up the standings.
Muller makes return in second string six-goal thriller GIANT German goalkeeper Heinz Muller made a welcome return to competitive action last Wednesday night – but conceded three goals as a relatively young Barnsley reserves side drew 3-3 with local rivals Rotherham on the Oakwell Academy pitch. The 30-year-old ’keeper,
having returned to fitness following a cruciate ligament injury which had sidelined him for several months, got a 83-minute work-out. Boss Simon Davey was delighted: “It looked as though Heinz had never been away. “It was a big thing for

him to get through a game. “He was coming for crosses and his distribution was excellent. “He will not be ready for the weekend’s first team game but I would expect him to be challenging after the international break. We will have to wait and see how he

reacts but he might need another game and a fortnight's training. “It will be great for this club to have Heinz fighting it out with Luke Steele to be in the first team.” Speaking to the Oakwell Club’s official website, Davey added: “I also have to say that young Reuben Lazarus was excellent too. For a 15-year-old he really grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck at times and it was great to see.”
