Terry Newton Obituary The Barnsley Eye and sister magazine The Wakefield Eye were saddened last month to learn of the death of Wakefield hooker Terry Newton aged just 31. The news has shocked and saddened the whole of the Rugby League Community. Newton was one of only five players to have appeared in each of the 15 seasons since the introduction of a summer Super League in 1996, although he only made two appearances this year for Wakefield Trinity, his fourth professional club, before receiving a two-year ban in February after testing positive for human growth hormone (HGH). In his autobiography – retitled Coming Clean, he spoke frankly of his shame at being exposed using the growth hormone, which he conceded was even harder to cope with following the death of his younger sister, Leanne, as a result of her heroin addiction. He made his Leeds debut aged 17 in the first Super League season, and played in the Rhinos team who won the last Challenge Cup final at the old Wembley against London Broncos three years later. He joined Wigan at the end of that season and played his best rugby for his hometown club, scoring 62 tries in 186 appearances, and earning his second cup-winners’ medal against St Helens at Murrayfield in 2002. He made his Great Britain debut against New Zealand in 1998, shortly after turning 20, and played in the team that secured the Lions’ last victory against Australia, in Sydney in 2006. Newton had spoken of his eagerness to work with the RFL in warning other players of the dangers of using drugs. He had started running a pub in Wigan, the Ben Jonson, with his father-in-law, the former Wigan and Warrington scrum-half Keith Holden, and had been there the day before he was found hanged at home. He leaves behind wife, Stacey, and two young daughters, Millie and Charley-Mia. We here at the magazine offer our sincere condolences to his his family.

The Jean Genie Fashion Show 2010

The Jean Genie lives on his back, the Jean Genie loves chimney stacks…. Ah yes who can forget the lyrics to Bowie’s sassy Jean Genie tune, and what better way to open this unforgettable fashion show! Before attending this show I didn’t quite know what to expect. All I knew was that a wonderful lady called Raychel Perks was on a mission to turn £50 into a much larger sum for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and to do this she decided to host a fashion show where the design entries were created from recycled denim. Hence the name Jean Genie! Upon arrival, a beautiful hostess treated us to nibbles and some lovely pink fizz to get us in the mood for what lay ahead. It wasn’t long before the terrible twosome that are drag queens Lady Bacardi and Miss Fanny Dee (pictured above with the nights models) graced the smoky stage. Hats off to these ladies now, they had me in stitches all the way through the show with their naughty banter and cheeky song numbers. Before the cat walk began, the ladies of dance troupe Cabalesque teased the audience with a saucy tribute dance to Lady Marmalade. Cabalesque is a local troupe that captures the fun and frolics of both Cabaret dancing and Burlesque. Their saucy moves and glittery costumes certainly left a few pulses racing! A breath taking, vintage style tap dance was also performed by local beauties Laura Amy-White and Samm Robyns aka Foxy Follies. Moo designs proved that Barnsley has plenty of fashion talent as they flaunted their sensational designs on the catwalk. I must admit, being a typical girl, I was drooling at the mouth thinking, ‘I want that one, no I want that one!’.

The highlight of the show was of course the Jean Genie competition, (above) where the denim design entries were auctioned off to the audience. The Debased team managed to get our grubby, fashion hungry mitts on a denim corset and long line skirt, as well as the actual Jean Genie harem outfit! The night was a complete success and an amazing total of £3257.75 was raised! This money is to help support Bluebell Wood and keep it running as they receive no statutory government funding. They simply rely on such events and donations to continue their amazing work in Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Debased Magazine team wants to congratulate Raychel and all those involved in the show. For more information on the work that Bluebell Wood do, please visit their website at Written by Sofire Rosa (at Debased Magazine( for the Eye.

06 Eye on Local News Superdad Darren takes Part in Run for the 4th Time Darren Pollard so loves a challenge that he took part in the Great North Run last month for the fourth time. Darren of Mapplewell, (left) is aiming to raise £1500 for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, the charity he has supported ever since his five year old son, Elliot, was diagnosed with the liver condition, biliary atresia as a baby. Following a successful liver transplant when he was six months old, Elliot is now fit and well but his family never forgot the support they got from CLDF when he was very poorly. “CLDF was there for us at a really difficult time” says Darren. “Thankfully Elliot leads a very active life now but other families are not so lucky and I’ll always want to do what I can to help people in the same situation as we were” Although training is going well, Darren is doubtful he’ll beat last year’s personal best of one hour 34 minutes. “I was delighted with my time last year but my training runs haven’t come close to that” he says. “Still I’m running in fancy dress this time which will slow me down a bit. I’m going as Batman’s sidekick, Robin, so I’ll look ridiculous but I’ll give Elliot a good laugh and that’s what it’s all about!” CLDF Chief Executive, Catherine Arkley, added: “We depend on the efforts of individuals and small groups for 75 percent of our funding and Darren has been a tremendous supporter of ours over the past few years. We’re delighted he’s taken up the Great North Run challenge once more and think a superhero costumer is highly appropriate!”

08 Eye on Local News Supporting Our Heroes Past And Present As Britain continues to combat the troubles in Afghanistan and Iraq and look to remember personnel from wars in our history, Hidden Hearing, one of the UK’s leading hearing healthcare providers, has launched an initiative to support The Royal British Legion. Many of those who fought either in WW2 or in more recent conflicts such as Afghanistan experience difficulties with their hearing and for some help isn’t easy to find. From 1st September and until November 14th, the company will donate £5 to The Royal British Legion for each hearing assessment carried out at any of it’s specialist hearing centres nationwide. Teresa Greener form The Royal British Legion commented ‘The Royal British Legion were delighted with the support received from Hidden Hearing last year, and particularly pleased that they want to continue and expand their support in 2010. Without the support of concerned and responsible organisations such as Hidden Hearing, the Legion could not continue its vital work supporting those who are serving and have served in the British Armed Forces.’ Graham Lane, Managing Director of Hidden Hearing, said: ‘Our service men and women deserve all the support we can give. Many return home experiencing difficulties with their hearing as a result of the noise experienced in areas of conflict. ‘Hidden Hearing provides first class hearing healthcare for our clients along with the most modern and discrete hearing systems. Hidden Hearing also offer products for Hearing Protection to help prevent the damage from exposure to noise, whether it be through battle field sounds, loud music or factory machines.’ Whether you are a service man/women past or present or a member of the public who would like to show their support and book a free hearing assessment, please call 01226 704080

Howells is a long-established South Yorkshire firm with an excellent record of providing expert legal advice to individuals, not organisations. In the last year, the firm has won a Yorkshire Lawyer of the Year Award and the Criminal Defence Lawyer of the Year in the prestigious national Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards. Solicitor Jack Danaher is already a very familiar face to many people in Barnsley, having run his own firm Jack Danaher and Co. for 25 years. A former miner, Jack went to Leeds University at the age of 34 to do his law degree. He specialises in criminal law and, unusually for a solicitor, is qualified to represent people in both the Magistrates and Crown Courts. Jack joined Howells earlier this year to help put the firm on the map in Barnsley. Legal Executive Ann Ridge (nee Mannering) is a native of Barnsley and started her legal career here as an office junior at D. B. Richards and Co. which she joined after leaving Kendray Oaks Comprehensive.  Over the years, she has built up her qualifications and experience with a variety of firms and joined Howells’ Crown Court team in 2002. Ann also has the qualifications needed to represent people detained in a police station. Jack and Ann are joined by legal secretary Joanne Wogan, who also comes from Barnsley.

Column We dont have to take our clothes off .....(to have a good time)!!!


This morning while poking mascara in my eye with one hand and eating toast with the other, I chanced upon Rhianna’s ‘Rude Boy’ video on MTV. At 7.15 in the morning, I was faced with Rihanna’s gyrating crotch, in teeny hot pants, provocatively waggling her backside in the general direction of said ‘rude boy’ with the catchy lyrics: ‘Come here rude boy boy, can you get it up, come here rude boy boy, is you big enough?’. The same day in the supermarket I overheard a group of young girls in school uniform singing the lyrics ‘I wanna take a ride on your disco stick’ from Lady Gaga’s ‘Love Game’. It brought to mind the day I saw a 4 year old being pushed along Blackpool front wearing a T-Shirt wearing the slogan ‘If You Wanna Be My Lover’ (you can blame Geri Halliwell et al for that one) and I began to wonder – are we all becoming so numbed to the blatant sexualisation of practically everything, that its seems anything goes these days as long as its under the label of ‘female empowerment’? How many times have we opened a magazine to see the latest has-been/ wannabe/pregnant celeb stripping off her clothes (and dignity) because it ‘makes them feel empowered?’ In the 60’s a lady called Mary Whitehouse (also often featured in ‘Oink!’ magazine!) campaigned against the explosion of sexual content on our TV screens, warning that it would sexualise young women in an unhealthy way. Back then she was laughed at, she was seen as an uptight old biddy, getting her metaphorical knickers in a twist over nothing - but she was right. We’re all used to ad agencies ramming sex down our throats to sell products but when they are resorting to sexing up particularly unsexy products like Yorkshire Tea and CHEESE(!) surely its going a bit too far. My nan buys tea-bags, I’m sure she doesn’t want to associate her morning brew with a couple on TV who are about to go at it on the settee. We’re becoming so blasé about sexual behaviour that we live in an age where nobody bats an eyelid at the couple hammering away on the tube train, but complain when they light up a post-coital fag. In her book Living Dolls, Natasha Walter recorded in shocking detail her conversations with British teenage girls about sex. They did not object to pornography, glamour modelling or lapdancing - on the contrary many considered the sex industry a viable career option and strippers and porn stars were viewed as being ‘cool’. ‘To be told that we looked like “porn stars” was the ultimate compliment’ said one. There was a time when a bloke would’ve got a thick ear for saying such a thing. Natasha and the girls shared a common cultural reference - Sex And The City. It’s been lauded as the ultimate feminist programme, with the message that girls could be just as promiscuous and predatory as men. The myth that casual sex ‘liberates’ women is still being peddled by the SATC movies - the only lines fifty-something menopausal Samantha has, revolve around her desire to snare any man she can get her hands on. I sincerely hope that any young women watching SATC can see the Samantha character for the caricature she is - I know of no women in real life like her and incidentally most men appear to be disgusted by her ever-sleazier conquests. We urgently need to be teaching our young sistas that this is not the way to be. Female empowerment means behaving as though you are equal to, not less than men, in every way – legally, professionally, financially, intellectually and sexually. This requires independence and self-respect, neither of which will be gained from sleeping around or lapdancing strangers in a bar. I’m not advocating a life akin to Maria Von Trapp. But the belief that overtly sexual behaviour empowers women is a dangerous delusion - its time we went against the media’s idea of ‘empowerment’ and showed our younger generation what it REALLY means to be a strong female.

Do you know when you’re a kid and you are BURSTING at the seams to tell someone something, but you know you can’t? Well, that’s me at the moment. Or should I say ‘us’ because there are five people in the same boat – the ‘Come Dine With Me’ boat. It was last year when we were picked out of all the entrants in Barnsley (over 600 I hear) to film the programme and we all wish we had a quid for every time someone has asked us ‘When are you on the TV ?’ It’s a big relief to be able to say that finally... ‘WE HAVE A DATE!’ You have to do some funny things as an author , but the one thing I said I would never do is a reality TV show. Especially not something like this show which has some of ITV’s biggest viewing figures of all time - and now goes out worldwide. Gulp, so no pressure then! I mean, I could totally wreck my career if I came across as a twerp/ horror/nutter – was I totally mad? However, my pioneering spirit kept nagging at me. ‘Go on, you wimp. Have an adventure. Get yourself put for’ard!’ And as I’ve always been of the Que Sera Sera persuasion, I thought , ‘if I’m meant to be on, I’m meant to be on.’ And I was. So many times we’ve been asked ‘did we know the people before? ‘ , ‘Is it just like you see on the TV?’ The answer is ‘more or less, yes’. No, we hadn’t a clue whose house we were going to on the first night, or the names/ages/ sexes of who would be there or what we were going to be eating all week. We were totally in the dark and we had to learn about each other as the days went on, loyalties formed, frictionsSummer arose... Chesham Road, just as you see it on the TV.

What I didn’t expect was the week to be as intensive as it was. We were all totally and utterly knac...tired out by the end of the most rock ‘n roll week that I have ever had - we made Keith Richards look like Anne of Green Gables! But BOY is it scary – sign up for one of those things at your peril. It’s hard to act in front of the camera for more than the first five minutes , because, surprisingly, you quickly forget they are there. And we have no control over editing or what Dave Lamb says on his voice over. We don’t get a preview and will see it at the same time as everyone else. I’ll be watching from behind a cushion, wondering if I should get intensive plastic surgery and a one way ticket to Acapulco rather than risk anyone I know ever seeing me again. I would spoil things for you if I gave any details away ( plus ITV would have my guts for garters) so all I will say is that we had a ball – and it must show because ITV have told us it’s one of the funniest ones they have done. I hope we did the town proud – and to all the scoffers who have said ‘A Barnsley Come Dine with Me? How many ways can you cook soup and chips?’ well, I return that we definitely gave other towns a good run for their money. I reckon Marco Pierre White will be quaking in his boots if he watches it...maybe. Would I do it again? Yes - in a breath and just goes to show, you should never shake your head to even the daftest opportunities if your intuition is telling you to nod to it. We were all bereft after the last glass of champers was sipped. For five days we were in a surreal, mad, wonderful, emotional parallel universe and it was unbearably sad when it ended – the sign, I think, of a very good time.

12 Eye on Hair This month The Eye asked our Barnsley grown expert Zena Claire what’s hot and what’s not in the wonderful world of hair. Zena shares her knowledge & expertise to hairdressers around the UK as a regional educator for Paul Mitchell and exclusively to Eye readers.

Live life in colour… Colour is my baby, I love colour it makes such a difference to our soles, our moods and our outlook on life- it can lift or dampen anyone’s day and is such a big impact on our surroundings. “Have you ever drawn back the curtains, to discover a grey, dull, drab day? Yet, when a beautiful sun greets you, your day starts so much better” Autumn colours play a big part in salon life the natural earthy tones inspire me to create individual “cocktail colours” for my guests. Autumn gives its way to beautiful colours that can be brought into your colour wardrobe and reds certainly turn heads. But which red suits you, here @ ZC we are colour specialists and can create a shade unique to you – we choose to work & play with Paul Mitchell The colour this

allows us to create beautiful, natural looking reds as close to nature & as organic as possible, beautiful damson plum reds, orange tones similar to the leaves found on the Japanese maple tree and rustic mahogany red hues. Your designer should consider your lifestyle, budget and time when designing a red tone as reds are notorious for fade- be aware of red that are so vibrate and claim to be permanentthese tend to be bleach based and wreck havoc with the condition of the hair. We would recommend a softer approach (as pictured above) and choose an Ink which is less damaging but need frequent top ups of 2/3 weeks.

Don t you deserve the best…?

There’s a popular style at the moment that is both cool and versatile. The hair should be a short cropped back and sides, graduating into a longer top. The top should still be long to wear either up or down. This style should be cut with plenty of texture to get the maximum results when worn up.

Most recently this style can be seen sported by David Beckham because of the styles versatility it would look great on both young and old. This style is also great no matter what the occasion, for a night out with the boys you can wear the style up, with the slightly heavy fringe up to give you that slight teddy boy look, which has been mentioned in previous columns. Alternatively for the office or wedding say, you could wear this style down and even with a slight parting. This should give you a more groomed look. Here are 3 products I would recommend for achieving this versatile style. All three products are great because there are easy to apply and contain enough hold to give all day volume American Crew Defining Paste This product is great for adding texture and increased definition. This product contains beeswax that provides natural, pliable hold for various lengths. Karl Smith Matte Clay This product is a firm holding, dry look product it is still soft enough and flexible so you can mould, shape or give a rough look. Ice-Erratic This is a smooth clay and like the other two products is very easy to apply, but it also benefits from giving maximum hold whatever your styling needs.

Relaxation............Just how do you do it? When was the last time you really relaxed? If we are really honest with ourselves relaxation is not easy to achieve in today’s merry-go-round of constant demands that we seem to have to cope with.

you to return to unfinished work refreshed and renewed. It will also help you to maintain a more positive attitude and able to complete your work more efficiently.

I was reading the other day that we are constantly being given new gadgets that are supposed to make our life easier, more streamlined and therefore we should have more time. But do we have more time? No we just seem to pack in more work and we end up more and more stressed. Phones with e-mail and internet facility are a good example of this. It is great to have one because you can access e-mail, reports etc when you are not at work. Great, you might think, time saved, sort the e-mail before going to work. Did you really want a working breakfast? And what about going on holiday? Constant access to the internet wherever you are in the world. It’s great for being in contact with friends and family, but you are supposed to be getting away from it all, and who can resist all those office e-mails? Can you be away from your desk for a week or even two and not feel that you have to check in?

1 Have an end of workday routine. Tidy your workspace. Think of all the things you have achieved during the day. Even if you feel as though you have not completed anything because of the demands of others you will find that each task has its small achievements. You might also consider your relationships with other colleagues and find something positive to say about your day. If it has not been a good day don’t dwell on it tomorrow is a new day, a new beginning.

Ok, you might think that I have painted a rather extreme picture, but that scenario does exist and we are all drawn into it in one way or another. Think of this. How much do you enjoy your work? It would be nice to think that we all enjoy work. Some consider it to be a necessary evil and can’t wait for the working day to finish but others become really enthusiastic about what they do. They enjoy it so much that they begin to live and breathe their work and for a time they float on the adrenalin rush that they get as they achieve great things. Sadly they don’t see that other areas of life that keep us in balance are slipping away until eventually work is the only thing in their life. What about those who take work home each evening so they can keep up and stay on top of the job? Once in a while this is ok but they can easily find themselves extending their day well into the evening and sometimes making early starts too, just to keep up. All they are really doing is running themselves further and further down, becoming more and more stressed and eventually depressed. Work has taken over and they see no way out.

So how can you really achieve relaxation? Here are some tips.

2 Try some meditation. Find a quiet space. You might want to play some quiet music or light a scented candle. Sometimes you might find a place outdoors near running water. Your space should be somewhere you won’t be interrupted. Concentrate on your breathing and allow yourself to become calm. 3 Your home is your sanctuary so make it a good place to be. Keep it tidy and ordered. Decorate using calming, soothing colours and choose natural textures, such as cotton, linen, natural wood and stone. Use relaxing aromatherapy oils to scent the air, play quiet music. 4 Get some exercise. It should not be competitive, as this will build stress into the situation when you feel you have to win. Build exercise into your day, walking, cycling gardening, swimming or dancing. Exercise such as Yoga and Tai chi combine gentle movement with meditation and breathing techniques as well as exercising the muscles and so are an excellent way to promote physical and emotional relaxation. 5 Have a relaxing bedtime routine. Avoid caffeine in drinks such as coffee, tea and cola. Try a herbal drink instead like chamomile tea or valerian. Lavender can also help relaxation. It is time to step off the work, sleep, work cycle. Switch off the work phone. Leave all th e-mails till tomorrow. Make time for you, for you and your partner, for you and family and friends. Do things together, enjoy each other’s company, laugh. And then go back to work refreshed, renewed and ready to face a new working day. Written by Maria Nortcliffe MAR. MICHT

So here is the challenge. We all need time to rest, recreate, switch off from the daily grind. If you are stuck in a rut of work, work and more work as above you need to take a risk. That risk is to make an effort to end the working day at a reasonable time and give yourself time to rest. Surprisingly it will allow

16 Eye on Beauty MINX NAILS

Verruca-Warts HPVI

by Claire Bryan at Sparkle & Gloss Minx Nails

Verruca Vulgaris (Common Wart) most often presents on the hands and knees although they can occur on almost any surface of the body. Verruca Pedis

(aka foot warts) are warts that occur on the foot. Verruca is derived from clinically observed rough top surface. The HPV virus can be transferred to other members of the family via towels, showers, baths, wet floors, changing rooms and bare foot activities, which may act as the vector for the transmission of this virus. The viruses are one of the most common skin diseases and can be difficult to treat. There is no known cure but there are agents that can cause the immune system to be made aware of the viral infection.

Having a problem with a Verruca or a Wart? Is the treatment given not working or taking too long?

Then Contact –

What exactly are they? Minx is a solid film with an adhesive back that is activated by heat. The heat gives Minx the conformability to fit over the curve of a nail, heat-seals the film onto the nail bed. The patent-pending, proprietary material that Minx is made of can easily be removed with heat or simply with acetone. Off in the bath? Minx is bang on trend at the moment with celebrities like Beyonce, Lady GaGa and Fergie wearing them to many celebrity functions. Can I go into a bath and also swim wearing Minx? Absolutely! You can enjoy long soaks in the bath, swimming or even lounging in hot tubs, when applied correctly, Minx has a waterproof seal that will prevent the minx from lifting. How long will Minx last? This depends on several factors; the most important being proper application. From my users, it appears the normal range is from one to two weeks on fingernails and toenails between 4 –6 weeks although I have had clients were they have lasted up to 8weeks, Minx does not chip, it can wear slightly depending on how they are treated. What range of designs are there? Here at Sparkle & Gloss we stock a large selection of minx from metallic to skulls and spiderwebs (for halloween - left) and the designs can be viewed by following the Minx link at

18 The Guide to a Healthy Bowel This article aims to give you a better understanding about the Bowel and how it works and what you can do to reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer.

Eating fruit, vegetables and wholegrain cereals is associated with reduced risk of certain cancers including those of the digestive system.

The digestive system is approximately 9 metres long and contains more than 400 different types of bacteria, most of which are located in the

Drinking enough fluids is just as important as eating the right kinds of food. The minimum recommended daily fluid intake for an adult is between 2 – 3 pints (approx 1.2 litres). Increase your fluid intake in hot weather or when exercising. Your urine should be a pale straw colour if dark it is likely you are not drinking enough water.

large intestine. The mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (bowel) are all part of the digestive system. The digestive system extracts the nutrients, vitamins and minerals from what you eat and drink and gets rid of the waste.

Limit the amount of alcohol you consume. Women should drink no more than 2 - 3 units a day, men 3 - 4 units. Limit the amount of sugary and fatty foods you eat. If you feel hungry and need a snack, try to keep hunger at bay with nuts or a piece of fruit. Chew well. Break down each mouthful into small pieces. This helps release the enzymes that aid digestion so that food is processed thoroughly and all the goodness extracted Don’t miss meals. A lack of food in the system can cause excessive gas - and lead to a gurgling, wind filled stomach Try and avoid eating large or fatty meals before going to sleep. Being overweight or obese can affect health in general and is especially the case with regards to our digestive system. A healthy lifestyle can help with many forms of illness to find out about keeping healthy visit

How to keep the digestive system healthy The digestive system can be upset easily. An unhealthy diet, stress, antibiotics and travel are some of the causes. An upset digestive system can make you feel bloated and sluggish. Many people suffer from digestive related problems at one time or another. One third of the population regularly suffer from digestive illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhoea, stomach-ache, nausea and sickness and 60% of British adults have experienced digestive problems when in stressful situations.

Diet - Useful Tips: We have compiled some useful diet tips below which could help ease and avoid bowel related problems and help you to maintain a healthy digestive system. Choose a wholegrain breakfast cereal or porridge in the morning; you could even add a handful of nuts and seeds or some fruit Eat small regular meals. Swap white bread for wholegrain or granary bread. Choose foods that are rich in fibre such as fruit, vegetables and starchy carbohydrates. A moderate amount of lean meat, fish, eggs and protein alternatives are also recommended, along with milk and dairy foods. __EYE_OCT_Complete.indd 18

Eye on Health 19 Bowel and digestive health tips: Alcohol Drinking too much alcohol is toxic to every part of the body, including the brain, the pancreas, the muscles and our digestive system. Alcohol is at its most concentrated in the stomach and this is especially the case when no food is present. As a result, when consumed in large amounts, alcohol can cause irritation and inflammation of the stomach lining. This in turn may result in nausea and vomiting.

Stress Stress is something that is quite difficult to avoid in today’s society. Problems occur when our lives cause a lot of stress, and one of the first parts of the body to react to stress is our digestive system.

Signs and Symptoms of Bowel Cancer: In 2007 there were 68 deaths from colorectal cancer in Barnsley, which accounted to approximately 10% of all cancer deaths. It is important that we recognise the signs and symptoms of bowel cancer (which last over a period of 4-6 weeks) and these are as follows:

• Bleeding from the bottom • A change in bowel habit to more frequent, looser motions • Lump in the tummy area • Pain in the tummy

Smoking Smoking is bad for every aspect of your health which includes your digestive health. Smoking is responsible for many changes in the digestive system. It contributes to common disorders such as heartburn and peptic ulcers.

Dehydration The human body needs water to maintain enough blood and other fluids to function properly, therefore it is essential that you keep yourself hydrated. As soon as the body begins to lose a substantial amount of water more quickly than it is replaced, the body starts to get dehydrated. A common effect of dehydration on your digestive system is constipation.

Getting Older As we get older, our bowels tend to become quite sluggish. This may be due to many factors including changes in our diet and less exercise. There is some evidence to suggest the lower bowel itself changes in old age. In some cases this can lead to bowel emptying difficulties and leakage. It is important to seek help from your GP or continence advisor if this occurs. Bowel Cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK after breast and lung cancer and is largely preventable. It is reported that around two thirds of cases could be prevented by lifestyle changes.

If any of the above apply to you it is advisable to contact your GP to discuss further. The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme offers screening every 2 years to all men and women aged 60 – 69. People in this age group will automatically be sent an invitation, then their screening kit (pictured below) so they can do the test at home. Your GP will provide your contact details, so it is important that he or she has your correct name and address. After your first screening test, you will be sent another invitation and screening kit every 2 years until you reach 69. If you are 70 or over, you can ask for a screening kit. You can contact your programme hub on Freephone 0800 707 60 60.

22 Eye on Style The Tall and Petite of it! The number of discussions I have had lately about how to dress tall and petite heights has gone off any scale. There are some easy guidelines to use if you are height challenged in both its forms!

Grand (tall) Is usually defined as over 5ft 7in in height – lucky you! But being this height and over can bring its own problems of leg length and how to avoid looking over tall. Ladies and gents who are grand need to use colour to break up their height. Different blocks of colour on a jacket, top, skirt or trousers will give the appearance of reducing height. You should wear larger bolder prints, statement accessories and heavier weighted fabrics (or finer fabrics worn layered). Try Long tall sally, Lanky Birds, Marisota, Very, Boden and high street stores, M&S, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Next, New Look, who all have longer leg lengths. Look below how Erin O’Connor gets it right and Jade Parfitt so wrong!

toe (or a tonal variation of one colour). Try to avoid lots of volume in clothing as it will swamp you. Use smaller prints and accessories (i.e. keep everything in proportion), minimize the amount of texture and bulk in fabrics, as again this can swamp you. The key rule is to keep your outfit neat and fitted correctly at the shoulders, waist, wrists and ankles. Try Précis petite, Minuet, Asos and high street Wallis, Next, Country Casuals, Debenhams, Jaeger, Dorothy Perkins, and BHS. Tesco have launched a range and other mail order petites include Very, Marisota and Kaleidoscope. Our favourite petite lady, Kylie Minogue shows how to do it right and wrong below...

Four years after she beat breast cancer, Kylie Minogue is raising awareness of the disease in a new campaign. The 41-year-old strips off and wears nothing but a smile and silk sheet with the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer logo across in a striking image taken by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino. Joining Kylie (below left) in the revealing new campaign, is pregnant supermodel Claudia Schiffer and actress Sienna Miller. Minogue’s involvement in the campaign comes nearly five years after she was diagnosed with the disease in May 2005. After a year of treatment, which involved a partial mastectomy to remove a malignant tumour, followed by eight months of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the pop star was given the all clear in 2006 and was able to resume her Showgirl tour in November 2006. She said: ‘It means so much to me to be part of this year’s campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. ‘I wholeheartedly support their efforts to raise funds for the vital work undertaken by Breakthrough Breast Cancer.’

28 Eye on Local Business Should I Sell or Extend? Steve Betts of Butcher Residential Ltd. gives the Eye his exclusive monthly property advice: There are a number of reasons why people decide to move, these include; having a family, wanting to be closer to work, preferring a rural setting and moving into a certain school catchment area. However, many people just want a bigger home. There are generally 2 options; you move or extend, but which one is best? There isn’t really a right or wrong answer as each circumstance is totally different. By extending you stay in a familiar area, there is no need to pay the costs associated with moving (solicitors, estate agents, removals etc) and you can plan exactly how you want an extension to look. Before making the decision to extend get quotes for the costs of extension and weigh them up against the cost of larger house. Moreover, remember every house will always have a natural ceiling in terms potential full value, regardless of the number of extensions. Unless you love the house you live in, I would never recommend spending more on an extension than the potential equity added value after the full works have been carried out. Another thing to remember is that certain types of extensions don’t add significant value. Conservatories, porches, vestibules and loft conversions (without bedroom building regulations) are great additions to any home, but the overall cost often doesn’t always add the same value. However, these types of alterations do certainly improve saleability. In my experience, and broadly speaking, a detached property will normally benefit more, in terms of added value, by extension. However, this is broadly speaking – if you are seriously looking at moving or extending, speak to an estate agent. We are generally happy to pass on any advice as to whether to extend or move we often have plans brought into our office from people want to know what to do for the best. In the majority of cases the advice is normally free. Once again, September has been a busy month at Butcher Residential with our overall sales continuing to improve month on month. I wish everyone who has bought and sold a property with ourselves over recent months the best of luck with their new home and hope you are very happy with your decision.

Eye on Entertainment Kes is Coming Home LS Theatre Production Presents Kes by Barry Hines and adapted for stage by Lawrence Till. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Kes and LS Theatre Productions are proud to be bringing the play home to Barnsley the town where it was born. Producer Lee Semley (below left) said “As a die hard fan of the film it was a childhood dream to meet the actor who brought to life one of the most iconic roles in british film history, Billy Casper. Meeting Dai Bradley has inspired me even more to so get this right and produce a piece of theatre that recaptures all the elements of the original film as well as allowing us some artistic licence to bring it to stage. Dai went on to offer some invaluable words of advice to Joe and Lewis on how to portray Billy. I told Dai that I would be taking on the role of Jud in the production and he said “I reckon you could play the part brilliantly - you certainly have the right build, so really go for it!”.


October Album Review

Dearne FM DJ Vicky Norton gives her low down on this months new releases:

Dai said “It was very pleasant meeting Lee and the boys, and I’m sure they will do the local theatre-going community proud when the production opens in October.

Robert Plant – Band of Joy Some may say there is something noble about Robert Plant’s refusal to sign up for a Led Zeppelin reunion. In a recent interview, the legendary singer spoke with enthusiasm about their one-off O2 Arena gig in December ’07, and the apparent £200 million he turned down for a full reunion tour, but he also revealed how his thoughts led him to question who exactly would be running that show. It seems apt that his new project should be named Band of Joy, as Plant seems to have stayed true to his heart and sounds to be making the music he wants to..for now. If you’re like me, however, you won’t be able to resist giving your old Led Zep vinyl a spin again.. ....just for old times’ sake. VN



Answer this easy question to WIN a family ticket for the matinee on Saturday 23rd October or Sunday 24th October: Q: Name the Barnsley actor who played the original role of Billy Casper?
