Amanda’s going for it in China

6 Seven lads seek company for Xmas Day meal SEVEN men who split up with their girlfriends have advertised for seven women to help celebrate Christmas Day. The friends, aged between 28 and 38, put an ad in the Chronicle asking for women ‘with a good sense of humour’ to spend Christmas Day dinner with them and have already had about 20 replies. One of the lonely hearts, Mark Denton, said the lads dreamed up the idea when chatting in the Tom Treddlehoyle, Pogmoor. Mark said: “The Curry Mahal at Dodworth offered to do us a proper dinner. But we thought we’d better find some female company for entertainment too. So we decided to put an advert in the Chronicle. “We’ve had about 20 get in touch already. A few have sent us photographs. We might have to start making a shortlist.”

On this day THE FIRST: Thanksgiving was celebrated across America for the first time in 1789. THE LAST: It was the final flight of the Concorde in 2003.

Weather Wednesday: Light showers 11°C. Thursday: Cloudy 10 °C.

FRIEND SAVES BOY STUCK IN COAL CHUTE tial reaction was to just get over to him. I lay down on my side and put my hands through the small gaps in the chute. I held as much of him as I could so that his weight was on me and not his throat. “I shook his head and kept making him look at me but he kept slipping in and out of consciousness and when he was awake he started panicking which made it even more difficult for him to breathe.” Three fire engines, four police cars and an ambulance were called to the scene. It took 20 minutes for firemen to cut him out and he was treated for shock and minor injuries to his neck. Nathan’s mum, Louise Ravenhill, said: “I was in Doncaster when I got a call telling me what had happened, I just dropped to the floor with worry. I was told by paramedics that if he had been stuck there much longer he would have suffocated, I want Jordan to get the praise he deserves for this. Nathan can’t stop thanking him, without his quick thinking and dedication this story could have had a completely different ending, one that doesn't bear thinking about.”

BY CARLA GEORGE A DARFIELD Foulstone pupil who got stuck in an old coal chute says he owes his life to the quick thinking of a 16year-old school friend. Nathan Ravenhill, 11, of Barnsley Road, Wombwell, got trapped in the chute as he tried to enter his friend’s house in Darfield, to retrieve a mobile phone. He said: “My friend, Eddie had left his phone in the house and his mum had gone out with the keys, the only way in was through the coal chute and I thought I could fit through it.” Nathan shimmied through the A4 paper sized hole and lying on his stomach managed to get his whole body through except his head. He said: “There was nothing to put my feet on, just a six foot drop, so I was literally dangling with the full weight of my body resting on my throat making me choke. “I didn't want Eddie to leave me but he had to go for help so for a couple of minutes I was on my own; I thought I was going to die.” Fellow pupil Jordan Mccewskey, of Bly Road, Darfield, heard Eddie calling for help. He said: “I thought he was joking at first, I couldn’t believe something like that would happen. When I saw Nathan he had his eyes closed and he was just hanging there; I knew he was in trouble and my ini-

TRUST MONEY SITS IN BANK FOR SIX YEARS BY KATIA HARSTON A CHARITABLE trust set up six years ago to receive and distribute ÂŁ100,000 in Woolley Colliery will start spending the cash next year, according to its chairman.

Festive gig: Mollie King from girl band The Saturdays sings to the crowd at Wednesday’s Christmas lights switch on. Picture: Scott Bairstow

The Woolley Colliery trust was established under an agreement with Woolley Grange housing estate developer Luke Devine. The man responsible for the 375home estate handed over ÂŁ100,000 to be put into a trust fund for the ‘provision and enhancement of community centre facilities for Woolley Colliery village’. But Joanne Broadhead, chair of the trust, says talks about how to use the money have been at a standstill because residents have ‘lost interest’. She said: “We are in possession of

the money but there is that much red tape to get through and so many things we can and can’t do, it’s hard to decide. “The impression we’re getting from villagers is it has gone on for so long people have lost interest. “They are fed up of broken promises and you can’t blame them. In all the time we’ve had the money they’ve never seen anything done with it.� The biggest push has been for a play area ‘with 99 per cent of people wanting one’, according to Joanne. She added: “The only problem now is finding a suitable site because if we put it in the bottom field people don’t want it near their new homes and we can’t have it behind Bluebell because the wood there is so overgrown it’s not safe. “It’s very frustrating for us because there is all this money gaining inter-

est stuck in a bank account and our hands are tied because we cannot make any solid decisions which people agree on.� She says the trust would like ‘to get the ball rolling for next year’ but the cash has to be used on projects integrating the village and Woolley Grange. Joanne added: “But how do you integrate three streets with 375 houses? “We’re going to have to go with the majority in the end because why should X number of people who do care what happens here miss out because others aren’t interested anymore? “We’re on hold until after Christmas then we’ll push harder for progress to be made.� Woolley Colliery Charitable Trust is always open to new members and anyone interested in being involved should contact Joanne Broadhead.

St Michael’s prove they get five-a-day ST MICHAEL’S Primary, Wombwell, has become the latest school to achieve National Healthy Schools status. The school, which runs a gardening club and produces its own fruit and vegetables, received a plaque at the Metrodome last week. Headteacher, Peter Davison, said: “Barnsley council has established its healthy schools’ award which can be bronze, silver or gold. “We have been awarded the silver award which is the equivalent of the national award, so we are pleased. “We have spent a lot of time concentrating on developing a healthy lifestyle, raising pupil achievement and wellbeing as well as promoting healthy eating and physical activity.� By December 2009, it is hoped all Barnsley schools will be involved in the national programme.

OAPS FEAR THEY MAY NOT LAST WINTER BY MIKE COTTON PENSIONERS in Worsbrough are worried they might not survive a very cold winter because their council bungalows are so poorly insulated. Vera Sharpe, 80, of Ravenholt, said she doesn’t like putting the heating on because it is so expensive, and as soon as it goes off, the heat disappears straight away. She said: “I always have to sit with my blanket round me. I have the heating on but there’s no double glazing and no insulation.” Neighbour Doreen Durnan, 62, said they cannot get grants for insulation because they are council tenants. She said: “They tell me we might get them done up under this Decent Homes scheme by 2011 – come on – some of these people on here are nearly 90, they want a comfortable life now. “I think it’s disgusting.” A Berneslai Homes spokesman said: “If an individual property has a specific property repair need they should contact the repairs hotline in the normal way and we will repair the problem.

“We have a planned approach to improvement schemes for properties that do not meet the decent homes standard. “We have no plans to improve properties at Ravenholt in this period but have agreed to check the properties for inclusion in future improvement schemes.” MP Mick Clapham has written to Berneslai Homes with his concerns and said he received a letter back from them yesterday, saying they were looking at applying for a grant for wall and loft insulation. He said: “They are waiting for Decent Homes improvements but I think in the interim when we’ve got older people facing a very cold winter we do need to get some money coming forward to make at least the minimum improvements like insulation and new windows.” Coun Gill Carr said the problem is severe, but is not confined to just Ravenholt. She said: “It’s a problem all over Worsbrough. “I know there’s Decent Homes work, but 2011 is a long way away when the cost of gas and electricity is so high, and people have health problems.”

Housing for flood-hit area BARNSLEY Council and a housing association are planning social housing in an area of Lundwood that is known to have flooded several times in 18 months. Chevin Housing has applied to the council for planning permission for 38 new houses. They will be on land that was previously used for housing between Lang Avenue, Martins Road, Michael’s Road and Wike Road. The council invited Chevin to put together proposals to redevelop the site which was under six feet of water

during the floods last year. Residents in Chevin bungalows also complained in August this year when sewage came gushing up

plug holes and out of manhole covers in their back gardens following heavy rain.

Owls help Jacqui continue search SHEFFIELD Wednesday manager Brian Laws has met the wife and daughters of missing jet ski expert Jeremy Hoyland to offer his support to the search. Jacqui Hoyland and daughters Ellena, 13, and Georgia, 11 met the Owls’ boss at Hillsborough last week to publicise their plight. He offered his and the club’s best wishes to the family. Jeremy, 41, went missing off the coast of Bali on a jet ski on October 24 after getting into trouble. Air and sea searches have been conducted daily but no

trace has been found. Jacqui, 44, of Talbot Road, says she is disappointed with the response of the British authorities in the search for her husband who she believes could be stranded on one of hundreds of uninhabited islands. She has written to Prime Minister Gordon Brown to ask for more help. Jacqui is also trying to get Jeremy’s mobile phone company, Vodafone, to provide her with details of his exact location when he made his last call.

Razor sharp musical at the Paramount

Blood-curdling: Razzmatazz actors Jack Land-Noble and Madeline Cooksey in ‘Sweeney Todd’. (S)

THERE will be blood, guts and a few dodgy meat pies at the Penistone Paramount this week when Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, comes to town. The Razzmatazz Community Youth Musical Theatre Company will perform the musical from today until Saturday. Jack Land-Noble, 18, will play the murderous lead Benjamin Barker aka Sweeney Todd with Madeleine Cooksey, 14, playing Mrs Lovett, Sweeney’s amorous assistant who creates pies from

his victims’ meat. Musical director Christine Cooksey said: “It is all a bit frantic but it’s coming together. We have some fantastic theatre props such as razors with fake blood so it’s going to be pretty gory. “It is a horror story but it’s very much a black comedy and should be a lot of fun.” The musical by Stephen Sondheim was recently turned into a hit film starring Johnny Depp. Shows start at 7.15pm each night with a matinee performance on Saturday at 2.15pm. Tickets £9, concessions £7 on 767532.

BOFFIN HELPS IN MYSTERY OF THE AMERICAN SUB By Ian Harley AN ARCHAEOLOGIST from Barnsley has joined a team of scientists and archaeologists working on a maritime mystery. Ben Rennison is helping Hunley Project determine how and why the Confederate submarine, H.L. Hunley, sank off America’s South Carolina coast just minutes after becoming the first submarine ever to sink an enemy ship. Ben, a former Wilthorpe and Penistone Grammar School pupil, first worked on the Hunley Project after completing a masters degree in marine archaeology and history at the University of Bristol. But his work in the 3D reconstruction of the eight-man craft, following laser scanning of the riveted steel shell, impressed project leaders so much that he was invited to join the team. Ben, 30 and formerly of Bond Road, Barnsley, says he feels honoured to have a small part in the final chapter of a ‘fascinating story of technology, triumph and tragedy’. That story started when the Confederate States, seeking independence from those in the North, turned to new technology

Brassed off: The Barnsley Town Concert Band kicked off Bandfest at Elsecar Heritage Centre last Saturday. The evening included performances by Hoyland-based Strata Brass, Barnsley Metropolitan Band and Stannington Band. The event was organised by the Barnsley Metropolitan Band and attended by about 400, including the Mayor of Barnsley Coun Ken Sanderson and Mayoress Beryl Sanderson.

Sub scanning: Ben Rennison and a colleague working on the cradled hull of the H.L. Hunley. (S) to help break the blockade of its shores by Union warships. On the night of February 17 1864, the crew of the hand-powered submarine used its pronged prow to hole the USS Housatonic and deliver enough explosive to sink it. Minutes later, the crew signalled to shore they had completed the mission and were coming home. That was the last that was heard of the Hunley for 131 years until its remains were discovered in a sea-bed search undertaken by author, Clive Cussler. The site of the wreck was subjected to detailed study long

before the shell which was raised to the surface in August 2000. Then began the painstaking examination by scientists at Charleston’s Warren Lasch Conservation Centre to map the exact position of every artefact inside the vessel including the bones of its crew. With the help of Ben, scientists can now digitally navigate through the vessel’s interior in a way that visitors to a planned museum will also be able to do in future years. He also travels widely to deliver presentations about the project to funding bodies and organisations.

Lifeline for rape crisis centre A RAPE crisis centre on the brink of closure has been given a lifeline with a one-off grant of almost £50,000. The future of Barnsley’s sexual abuse and rape crisis unit was uncertain when the charity’s main source of funding came to an end last month. But the one-off government grant means BSARCH can continue to operate while alternative streams of funding are sought. Project manager Katie Russell said the payment would ensure the charity’s immediate survival. She said: “It is fabulous and has really given us the lifeline we need. We want everyone to know that we’re not

closing and we are negotiating with other possible sources of funding.” The charity, which has given support to women for over 20 years, has been promised £47,990 from the emergency fund as a one-off sum. Its only regular income is provided by the council but this only covers five per cent of the £90,000 annual running cost. The charity serves an estimated 600 women a year .

Amanda’s Great Wall walk is tribute to Mum THE daughter of a woman who died from cancer is walking the Great Wall of China to raise money for Barnsley Hospice. Amanda Green, of Water Royd Drive, Dodworth, will embark on the ten-day expedition in April in memory of her mum, Gillian Green. The 28-year-old will be expected to trek for eight hours each day covering a distance of nearly 50 miles. “My mum died at Barnsley Hospice in September last year and I feel that they are not recognised until you need

them. Walking along the Great Wall of China is just something that has always interested me and I used to talk to mum about it. “She always told me to go for it so I am.” Amanda, who is training to be a midwife, is paying for the expedition herself so any sponsorship she collects will go straight to the Hospice.

ADVERTISER’S ANNOUNCEMENT

World Class Dancer & Beautician Elizabeth Webster takes over her own Beauty Clinic in Barnsley - Halcyon House, formerly called Amaryllis. Established 8 years ago the Beauty and Complementary Health Clinic is at the junction of Carlton Road & Rotherham Road, near enough the town centre to serve the whole of the Barnsley district. How did Elizabeth choose the new name? “For me the word Halcyon conjures up an image of peace & tranquillity, happiness & satisfaction. That nicely sums up the Beauty experience that we offer, based on the personal touch of a skilled therapist, using the best quality products & techniques.” Very high standards & attention to detail is the hallmark of a successful salon. “It’s good to take over an established salon with an existing client base, though new business is always welcome, & I’m confident that when new clients come to us they too will become loyal customers.” Twice Irish Dancing Champion of Great Britain, Elizabeth finally withdrew from World Class Competition Dancing this year after an incredible 17 consecutive World Championships. “I like to think I bring the same dedication to my career as a Beautician as I have to my dancing. I’m a bit of a perfectionist!” At her home in Handsworth, Sheffield, hundreds of dancing trophies & medals from regional, national & World Championship competitions pay testament to a life dedicated to dancing since aged three, which has taken Elizabeth as far away as China. Now turning her drive & perfectionism to running her own business, all we can say is “watch out World, there’s Halcyon days ahead!”

CONCERN OVER LACK OF SKILL IN ECOLOGY ISSUES THREATS to a natural heritage site posed by a proposed mass composting site were overlooked by the council, a government agency has said. When the council’s planning board considered the composting site at Hood Green, concern was raised about the impact on the health of people nearby and a decision was deferred until more information about the health risks was known. But a councillor says no mention was made of the development’s potential effect on a natural heritage site. The council is responsible for protecting and managing the site due to the plants found there, although the council says the precise area within the site proposed for development is former industrial land. Coun Peter Middleton says it emphasises the point that the council has a lack of expertise in ecology and biodiversity. MP for Barnsley West and Penistone Mick Clapham also said he is concerned: “A letter I received from Brian Davies at Natural England (a Government Agency)

Coun Peter Middleton. made it quite clear the site falls within the Falthwaite and Low Wood Natural Heritage site. “Well, the idea of these sites is to ensure the sustainability of the biodiversity in those sites. “The fact the application falls within this site was overlooked. That is a worry. “If we can overlook something as important as that because we don’t have the kind of expertise in planning then it’s certainly something of concern to me.” Last month, Coun Middleton

told councillors the council was failing to deal with biodiversity and ecology issues and Barnsley was the butt of jokes among ecologists for its lack of expertise. The commission asked Coun Middleton to provide more evidence and examples of his claims and this is one example he will provide. He did not realise the importance of the site himself at first. He said: “I work as an ecologist, but all around the country. “I don’t know myself where all the borough’s 48 Natural Heritage Sites are. That is why we do need an expert.” The council normally does not grant permission in natural heritage sites. Coun Bill Newman said he refutes any allegation that the council does not take biodiversity seriously. He said: “In regards to the Hood Green site, we have consulted with Natural England and my understanding is they have no statutory reason to object. “The application has been withdrawn until more information is brought forward, but I believe that is mainly with regard to health matters and transport issues.”

Butcher’s pork pies score high, but the ingredients are staying a secret A LUNDWOOD butcher’s secret ingredients have won them an award for their pork pies. The pies, baked every day at Lundwood Butchers on Pontefract Road, were voted among the top five in the North East, having received a gold award by judges at a ceremony in Harrogate last week. Along with 36 other businesses they were judged on the quality of the pastry and meat and scored 96 marks out of 100, just being pipped by the winner of the BPEX Regional Roadshow (98). It is the first award Lundwood Butchers, who took over from Potters butchers, have gone in for and hope it will be the first of many. Kevin Sidebottom and Mick Ellis started the business in December last year and began making their pies in April but as for the special ingredients they are keeping quiet. Kevin said: “It is a secret and it’s stopping a secret.” Mick said it was about buying the best of everything. Kevin added: “It is the first compe-

they are a good but we were delighted and it is nice to get recognition. We have to thank everyone who has supported us.”

Discover the Majestic Fjords Join Discovery on a no-fly cruise sailing from Harwich to the wonderful Norwegian Fjords, a destination of outstanding natural beauty and historic interest. The spacious Discovery is a classic 4-star vessel with elegant lines on which you will be accompanied by no more than 660 passengers. Our highly-acclaimed team of lecturers and guest speakers will ensure that your time on board is as memorable as your time ashore. You’ll enjoy excellent service and great value for money with all meals, entertainment and gratuities on board included in your fare.

MV DISCOVERY Small enough to reach out-of-the-way ports, large enough to make light work of crossing oceans, Discovery has been expressly conceived for our special brand of discovery cruising there are all the facilities you would expect on a ship of this size, including three restaurants, a choice of bars and lounges, two pools, a wellstocked library, lecture theatre/cinema and internet centre.

THE NORWEGIAN FJORDS The spectacular Norwegian Fjords, where welcoming harbours and villages await, are a breathtaking destination. Ever more amazing vistas seem to open daily on this cruise to a land where Norse legend and folklore still echo. Plate-glass waters reflect forested slopes rising straight for the skies and distant summits reveal unseasonable snow. Stepping ashore in Ulvik, it’s a short way to Osafjord that cuts a 300 metre deep cleft through the scenery. Hardanger traditions thrive in villages where folk dancers and looms seem busy stitching the past with the present. At Olden there’s a chance to walk to the foot of the vast Briksdal Glacier, and at Flåm, the opportunity to wind our way up the famous railway. Bergen’s ancient wharves and Oslo’s curious Vigeland sculptures offer more ancient and modern Norse culture to enjoy.

SERVE UP A SUCCULENT CHRISTMAS FEAST EVERYONE knows how stressful Christmas can be. The house full of relatives who don't get on, over-excited and tired children throwing tantrums and petulant teenagers wishing they were anywhere rather than with their family. The Christmas Day lunch is another potential recipe for disaster, with the worry for the cook of over done turkey and soggy sprouts. However, with a bit of planning the day can go smoothly and without hassle. It’s always a good idea to start preparing for Christmas Day lunch on Christmas Eve, by making some stock from the giblets, boiled up with some carrots, onion, celery and bayleaf, to use for the gravy. You can also prepare your vegetables, sprouts and parsnips, and your pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in bacon)

and assemble your trifle. Later on in the day you can start to prepare the chestnut stuffing, using sausage meat as the main ingredient to keep the turkey moist. On Christmas Day itself, everything revolves around what time you want to sit down to eat and the size of your bird. But it is always a good idea to get the turkey and stuffing out of the fridge to allow them to get to room temperature so they will start cooking as soon as they go into the oven. You’ll need to put the pigs in blankets in later in the morning. While it is cooking, you can peel the potatoes and put them in cold water ready to parboil before roasting them, and make the bread sauce. You’ll also need to put the steamer on for the Christmas pudding, if you are having one, and make the brandy sauce.

TAKE IN THE TRUE FESTIVE MEANING THE true meaning of Christmas is often lost in the rush to open presents on December 25, but it marks a festival that has been celebrated for thousands of years. Everyone knows Christmas is the time of year when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus. The word itself comes from the Old English term Cristes maesse, meaning ‘Christ’s mass’, which was the name for the festival service of worship held on December 25 to mark the birth of Jesus. While we know that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, a few miles south of Jerusalem, we do not know exactly when he was born, or even the year. One reason for this is that the stories of his birth, recorded in the New Testament books of Matthew and Luke, were written many years after they happened and no one actually wrote down any dates. Many experts think Jesus was actually born in the spring, but date of Christmas moved to December so that the new Christian religion would have something to celebrate to compete with ancient pagan festivals that occurred at about the same time. The Eastern Orthodox and the Eastern Rite churches within the Roman Catholic church chose January 6. The day was named Epiphany, meaning ‘appearance’ – the day the infant Jesus was first seen by the Magi, the Three Wise Men. However, the Western church, based in Rome, chose December 25 and Christmas was first celebrated on that day around the year 336. Everywhere Christmas is celebrated, the day is marked by special activities that make it totally different from any other day of the year. Other customs have to do with decorating evergreen trees with lights as well as wreaths, and holly. The modern Christmas tree originated in Germany during the Middle Ages. A play about Adam and Eve around that time used a fir tree hung with apples, called the ‘Paradise tree’, to represent the Garden of Eden. German families set up a Paradise tree in their homes on December 24, the feast day of Adam and Eve. As the Christmas holiday was the next day, candles representing Christ as the light of the world Celebration: There is more to Christmas than opening presents left under a pretty Christmas tree.

Mistletoe sprig: A popular symbol of the season.

(S)

Mistletoe means more at Christmas KISSING under the mistletoe, that fine Christmas tradition, became popular in Britain during the Victorian period. The origins are believed to date much further back than that, however, with the Druids, the ancient Celtic order of priests, being credited with having started it all. They are believed to have cut mistletoe annually in November and hung it over their doors to protect them from witchcraft. The plant was thought to

work healing miracles and stimulate fertility when people kissed beneath it. But make sure there are berries left on your sprig

before you pucker up – according to tradition, no more kissing is allowed when all the berries have gone.

WEAR HEELS AND BRING OUT YOUR INNER GODDESS real lady.” She advises that legs and feet are left bare instead of stockinged as this will help your shoes ‘stick’ to your feet. Celebrity stylist Hannah Sandler has this advice: “Hair-free legs and super-smooth skin will give you the confidence to carry off great heels,” she says. “Plus, pedicured toes are simply a must if you’re going for a open-toe. “Shoes have the power to make your legs look long and lean or short and stumpy, so the size, shape and height of heels and what you wear them with is very important,” she adds. “If you have larger legs, avoid T-

HIGH heels are one sure fire way to bring out your inner goddess this Christmas. Acting like portable pedestals, they draw the eye up, elongating the legs and giving the appearance of sleeker, more beautiful pins. To help you make the most of your party outfit, the people behind the leading ladies’ razor Gillette Venus, have created a High Heel High School Guide. Contributor Camilla Morton, author of How to Walk in High Heels, says: “Whether you choose an open toe or classic court, your heels say a lot about you. “Most of all you want to show that you are elegant, groomed, and a

straps or ankle straps, wide heels and round or square toes as these styles can visually enlarge legs and widen the appearance of the foot. “Wedges can be worn with virtually every outfit, from skinny jeans, wide legs, seven-eighth trousers to maxi dresses. “Stilettos are the ultimate sexy shoes which never go out of style. Add extra sex appeal by choosing a heel with a low-cut front to reveal a peek of ‘toe cleavage’. “Super-high platforms are big news on the catwalks and good news for the ‘fuller figured’, as they provide balance for your shape and Killer heels: Black twist-knot platform shoe from Matalan. help even out your silhouette.”

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. Their aim is 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-in-one 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 with a spare base and mattress which can be used as an extra single or can form a double bed. In addition there are electrically operated bed lifters which raise the mattress vertically and also at the head and foot, which are beneficial to those in a caring role who have to do a lot of lifting. Edwardian Bedding also sells memory mattresses which were invented by NASA for astronauts. These mould to the body while you sleep and return slowly to their original shape during the day. The whole mattress is ‘slow return’ and as such can be turned, unlike combinations which feature the function on one side only. Cool-Max mattresses 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. And now the best of both worlds, Edwardian Bedding have designed and produced recovery and spring marriage, which gives a double luxury sensational sleep. You must come and try it to experience “Heaven on Earth’, and in addition to this it has the advantage of being a ‘no turn’ mattress. The company also 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.

How to walk with confidence CATWALK choreographer Lee Lapthorne explains how to apply the supermodel technique to walk the walk with confidence. “When it comes to catwalking, every designer requires a different strut. The Gucci step is punchy with lots of energy and rhythm, in contrast to a Chanel stride, which is slower paced, more elegant and relaxed,” he said. For the girl in the street, the style is more Chanel than Gucci, a sexy, elon-

gated step. “Keep your legs close together and as straight as possible,” says Lee. “Imagine a straight line in front of you and walk to it. “Add a sexy vibe with a slight strut, crossing each step over the previous one.” He advises practising in private to perfect your high-heeled gait, walking around the house in heels to get used to the height, and using a full-length mirror to see how you look.

Oh yes, it is! The wish-granting Genie from Aladdin and Cinderella’s aesthetically challenged sisters.

ROYAL MAIL HONOURS PANTO TRADITION FOR many of us, Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without a trip to the panto. It’s where we laugh at dreadful jokes, join in with terrible songs and wait in eager anticipation to boo and hiss and shout out the well-known catchphrases. Royal Mail is honouring the time-honoured tradition by choosing a cast from among the most popular goodies and baddies who have entranced us over the years to star on its 2008 Christmas stamps. Appearing, as if by magic, on first-class stamps is Aladdin’s

Genie, and he’s joined on the second-class stamps by the Ugly Sisters from Cinderella. On 50p and 81p stamps, Captain Hook from Peter Pan and the Wicked Queen from Snow White are presented in typically evil poses. Julietta Edgar, who is head of special stamps at Royal Mail, said: “Every year customers look forward to our Christmas stamps, which have been brightening up the festive season for more than 40 years. “Pantomime is a genre unique to the UK with a tradition

stretching back hundreds of years. “It certainly provided me with my first experience of live theatre and is always one of the highlights of Christmas.” Pantomimes were first performed in England in the 17th century, gradually evolving from a light, popular comedy into the slapstick extravaganza we know and love today. For customers who prefer their stamps to feature a religious image, the popular first-class Madonna of Humility and second-class Madonna and Child stamps, introduced last year, will also be available.

People plan to spend less, says survey same as usual on Christmas 2008, 58 per cent said they could do so because they had saved up for the festive season all year round. Seventeen per cent put money away from the summer time onwards, while 19 per cent said they started saving three months beforehand. Six per cent put money by for Christmas a month before the festivities begin. Of those who said they did not save up specifically for Christmas, 22 per cent

said they would use their credit card to cover the cost, while 13 per cent admitted they would have to use their overdraft facility. But the majority (47 per cent) said they would dip into existing savings. As for how much people are planning to spend this year, 38 per cent of those polled said they were expecting to spend up to £500, while 36 per cent anticipated their Christmas costing between £500 and £1,000.

Seventeen per cent would spend between £1,000 and £1,500 and six per cent would face a total bill of between £1,500 and £2,000. The remaining three per cent were looking at spending between £2,000 and £5,000. Gary Lacey, savings products manager for Norwich and Peterborough, said: “The results of the survey show us that putting money into a sav-

THE credit crunch is bringing out the Scrooge in many of us, according to a survey by Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The research revealed that the current financial climate has forced some people to rethink how they will splash the cash this festive season — with more than half of those polled revealing they have planned to be far more frugal than usual. Fifty seven per cent of those polled said they were planning to spend less this Christmas and, of those, 68 per cent said that they would make savings by buying cheaper or fewer presents. Forty eight per cent revealed they would buy less food or forego meals out in order to save money, while 16 per cent were planning to miss out on parties as a way of saving cash. Ten cent cent were not planning as many, or any, decorations this year. However, of those customers who said they would be spending the

WAYS TO RECYCLE FESTIVE RUBBISH BY TRACEY SMITH YOU’LL blink and it’ll be all over for another 12 months — presents open, tummies full to bursting and ‘Turkey Surprise’ on the menu through to New Year. Perhaps this is a perfect time to look at the rubbish you’re about to create over the Christmas week and better still, for you to include some serious rubbish reduction plans in your resolutions for 2009. Tracey Smith, the author of The Book of Rubbish Ideas, which is full of ways to help you minimise your impact on landfill, says: “There’s something about the sheer abundance of Christmas that makes all the excesses feel quite overwhelming. “We invariably eat too much, we over-cater for too many people and we definitely spend too much money. The net result of this uberconsuming can leave us feeling quite vacuous after the event. “By giving a positive embrace to living with less you’ll start the New Year in a great frame of mind and your bin men will have considerably less backache carting your rubbish away.” Here are some of her top tips to get you on the right, green track with your festive trash. Wrapping paper:Harvest it to rewrap gifts and customise your own by buying a roll of cheap brown paper, decorating it with a hand-printed potato stamp in a Christmas design and fastening it with raffia or string. Add nonreusable paper — minus the sticky tape — to your recycling bundle or your compost heap. Cards: Have a Blue Peter moment and cut all the spangly bits off of the cards you receive, pop them in a shoebox and make your

own cards next year. Decorations: If they’ve seen better days, cut them up and add them to the crafty shoebox, or remove the staples, stick them through a hand-shredder and use them to pack out gifts like jams and preserves in a homemade hamper, or use them to protect items you put in the post. Tree:Make sure real ones find their way to the green waste bin at your local civic amenity site. Many sites also recycle old plastic trees too. Unwanted presents: Don’t clutter up your life, recycle unwanted gifts. Wrap them up and pass them on to a more suitable recipient, or ‘freecycle’ them — via the worldwide network of groups devoted to seeing that unwanted but reusable items go free to a good home rather than ending up in landfill. Visit www.Freecycle.org.uk for more information. Leftovers: Don’t bin them, recook with them. Invest in a few cook books and learn how to use them to make quiches, pies and soups. Check out Tracey’s video at www.BookOfRubbishIdeas.co.uk with her super-easy recipe for making Fabulous Rubbish Flatbreads. And don’t forget to put all your organic waste into a composter or wormery, which turns your cooked and uncooked food waste into a fantastic worm compost which you can plant in or just dig into the garden, and a nutritious liquid plant feed which you can use to feed your plants, indoors and out, flowers, vegetable patch or lawn. You can find out more information at www.OriginalOrganics.co.uk. For more rubbish ideas visit www.BookOfRubbishIdeas.co.uk.

PAWS FOR THOUGHT FOR YOUR PETS AT CHRISTMAS

Presents for pets: Indulge your furry friends this Christmas.

Picture: Supreme Foods.

RESEARCH shows that animal lovers enjoy treating their pets – 70 per cent of dog owners and 56 per cent of cat owners buy gifts for their four-legged friends. And Christmas is a great time to treat small furries, like rabbits, ferrets and guinea-pigs, with a gift that is good for them as well as fun. The new Animal Welfare Act aims to encourage pet owners to keep their pets happily active and the right to exercise is considered by the RSPCA to be one of the five basic welfare needs. Therapeutic toys will provide a more stimulating environment for your pet and prevent boredom, encouraging them to undertake lots of natural behaviour as well as enjoy a little extra exercise. Ideal Christmas presents for small furries include dumbbells, exercise balls and Rip and Run Burrows, which can be used for playing hide and seek, and also encourage your pet to chew, which is a great way of keeping their teeth healthy. Natural wood log panels can be easily bent into arches or rolls, ideal for chewing, playing with and hiding behind. These are simple stocking fillers for your rabbit or guinea-pig and will keep your pets entertained as well as exercised for months to come. A new grooming comb and brush is also a great present.

Gently brushing or combing your pets’ fur or coat provides a good opportunity to check their skin, hair, eyes, paws and claws to make sure everything is in good order. And while everyone eats lots of rich food at Christmas, it is important to watch what you feed your pets or they could end up being sick. Giblets, stuffing, puddings, chocolate and cream can all make cats and dogs ill. Dogs enjoy chewing on a juicy bone, but make sure it is a big marrow bone so there is no danger of the dog swallowing it. Never give a dog or cat turkey bones – they splinter easily and could cause an animal to choke to death – not to mention what damage they can do to their stomach and intestines. And if you are going to feed your pets turkey meat, make sure it is white, not dark, as that is too fatty for them. Lots of supermarkets stock Christmas food for pets – pet puddings, packets of tasty treats and chews, and even turkey-flavoured food. Make sure you pick up some animal crackers too - full of bits and pieces which your canine and feline friends will find fun.

CRAFTY TIPS TO HELP YOU MAKE CARDS THE tradition of sending Christmas cards dates back to 1846, when the founder of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Henry Cole, commissioned artist John Horsley to do an illustration of a happy family. He had 1000 cards engraved and hand coloured, and sent half to his friends and sold the rest for a shilling apiece – quite a sum of money in those days for most families. The idea caught on fast and Christmas cards remain as popular as ever as the preferred Christmas festive greeting, beating off strong competition from newfangled formats like text and email, according to research by Royal Mail. Holly, ivy and robins and piglets were popular Christmas card designs with the Victorians but these days, anything goes, from traditional Nativity scenes to mild or bawdy humour. For a more individual greeting, it's very rewarding to make your own – and they’re certain to be deeply appreciated by the recipient. Here, handmade stationery designer Louise Cunningham shares her ideas on trends and inspirations. “It’s a good idea to begin by making a 'mood board', containing a collage of ideas and inspirations, cut out from cards and magazines, for example, with colours and images that have caught your eye. Keep your eyes open everywhere you go and look out for things from everyday liv-

ing which inspire you. It might be wallpaper in a magazine with a pattern that you like or a Christmas decoration. “Craft shops are a wonderful source for embellishments and attachments.” Louise has picked out three distinctive trends for this Christmas to help budding designers choose a theme. ‘Winter wonderland’ use a frosted palette of ice blues, white, cream and silver, with hints of dusky pink, teal or slate blue for contrast. For the design, choose from twinkle ribbons, diamante, beads, sequins, lace and feathers, with layered hearts, snowflake patterns and stylised lettering. ‘Burnished glow’ is a bold, metallic look, with gold, bronze, copper and amber tones dotted with hints of black and pale pink. For embellishment, try butterflies, ribbons, jewels and bows, with kaleidoscope patterning or bold, botanical imagery. The traditional look is always popular, with a palette of rich tones like berry red, plum and cranberry and burnt, earthy tones like orange, chocolate, cinnamon, fern green and olive, with hints of gold, cream and ivory. Use oversized bows, velvet ribbons, lace and beading to decorate. Louise, who lives in Barnsley and runs a wedding stationery business called Mimosa Designs, was previously a handmade Christmas card designer for Hallmark, creating ranges for major retailers like Asda, Tesco and Next.

Traditional: Rich tones like berry red, cinnamon and cranberry capture the spirit of the season.

Winter wonderland: Use crystals and jewels for simple, sparkling glamour.

Burnished glow: Gold, bronze and amber tones merge to make up the metallic trend.

Poinsettias are simply the best this Christmas

ADD FESTIVE FOLIAGE TO YOUR HOME THERE are so many ways to decorate your home for Christmas with delightful displays of festive foliage. Here are two easy-to-follow ideas to whet your appetite. For a lovely Christmas wreath in green and white, use a mixture of wintry blooms like hyacinth, freesia, longiflorum lily and star of Bethlehem with brunia and snowy spruce, offset with natural shells and sparkling Christmas lights. Light from a round candle in the centre will cast a glow off the pretty pearl beads. Crimson begonia are perfect for Christmas. You can weave them into a ready-made

ix

woven wooden wreath, available from florists and garden centres, for a gorgeous traditional red and green arrangement. Just take eight red mini begonia, and tape four cocktail sticks to the base of their pots, so that the sticks protrude like legs. Use the legs to slot the begonia pots into position on the wreath frame. Cover the remaining space with evergreen foliage by simply weaving individual branches into the frame. Finally, take lengths of ivy and wrap them around the wreath. Four candles placed in the middle give a warm, Christmassy glow.

COLOURFUL poinsettias bring an exotic edge to the cold season and even have a day dedicated to them - December 12, the date of the death of Joel Poinsett, the US diplomat and plant lover who first bought the plant from Mexico to the new world. Here?s how to create the- fes tive arrangement pictured left ● Take a cone-shaped piece of moist florists’ foam and pin moss all over, leaving a gap at the top. ● Pierce crab apples with cocktail sticks, and push into the foam. ● Add pieces of spruce and some berries. ● Glue sticks to pine cones and add to the design. ● Add your Poinsettia ‘star’ — cut the stem from a plant and seal the end by passing through a candle flame. Voila – your very own homemade Christmas tree!

Bedrooms are still proving popular for Design Interiors and, with the new factory now open, flexibility and quality are even better. As they manufacture the units themselves all

the furniture can be custom made for most requirements, including dormer bedrooms. For all the DIY buffs, supply only isn’t a problem, with all kitchen units being fully assembled and delivered free of charge. They can even do the planning and check survey to avoid any costly mistakes.

Since then the farm has made a name for itself as a quality producer, supplying trees to many household-names, including supermarkets for their festive commercials and the BBC for last year’s Christmas episode of Dr Who. Its latest move was to open up an internet side to the business, The Christmas Tree Farm, allowing people across the country to order its trees online.

Swotting up: Barnsley first-teamers Dennis Souza and Anderson De Silva are pictured with Holgate School Year 11 pupils at the launch of the Football and Schools Together scheme (FAST).

FAST FORWARD THE HOMEWORK BARNSLEY FC have signed up to a £270,000 national scheme, funded by the Football Foundation, to encourage youngsters to attend homework clubs. Twenty-five professional football clubs have joined the FAST – Football and Schools Together – scheme, which will reward attendance at homework clubs with professional football coaching. The local focus of FAST has proved popular with football clubs as it fits well with the agenda of Football in the Community. UEFA-trained coaches from Barnsley FC will now be making weekly visits to local schools to pro-

vide an hour’s football coaching to youngsters from Year 8 to 11 who attend the school’s homework club for at least an hour a week. Homework clubs are aimed at under-performing children who, with the right stimulus, could achieve higher results. FAST aims to reach 900 children from more than 50 schools across England. Dr Liz Marr, director of the project said: “Homework clubs are an excellent idea but they are not always attractive for youngsters and this is where FAST Forward comes in. “Football is a very powerful motivator and can be a real force in

inspiring children and encouraging participation.” Dr Marr added: “Research has also shown that children who are physically active are up to eight times more likely to excel at exams, ideal for those in the FAST age group who are taking their GCSEs.” As well as benefiting from improving their literacy, numeracy and computer skills at homework clubs, young people involved in the scheme can work towards a FA Junior Football Organisers (JFO) Coaching Award. Barnsley FC will be supporting pupils at Holgate School and Royston High School.

Toilet humour: It looks as if Reds defender Darren Moore has forgot to properly sort himself out after a toilet stop. But seriously, the club say he suffered a torn abductor longus muscle. Oh aye? Not a bog standard injury then. Is that a posh word for Darren’s groin? Now we know Mooro is a big lad but does he really need the whole roll – or is he just showing off?
