to the May/June edition of Aroundtown Magazine.

Dear Reader

As we spring into summer, it’s

great to be sharing events and

happenings across our towns,

something we have all missed. From

music events to food festivals, this

edition is packed with things to do with

your family, not forgetting some new

places to eat and drink.


To commemorate the Queen’s Platinum

Jubilee, we look back at the historic royal

visits to our region and feature where you can

go to join in the celebrations to mark this

milestone occasion.

Talking of nostalgia, we hope you enjoy our

trip down memory lane with a look back at

Eldon Street in Barnsley. Thanks to £4million

in funding, the buildings on Barnsley’s main

gateway are being brought back to life and their

stories uncovered.

From the past to the future, young people

in Rotherham have been given a golden

opportunity to be part of the borough’s journey

to become the world’s first Children’s Capital of

Culture in 2025. Over 50 Young Producers have

been busy working on a series of cultural events

taking place this summer.

A big concern for us all at the moment is

the rising costs of living but Rotherham charity

RotherFed share some tips on how to make your

money go further.

As ever we are big patrons for shopping local

and spending money in our towns. Together we

can make a difference by choosing to support

local independent businesses.





Happy reading!

Tala Lee -Turton

There’s an admirable

fearlessness about

Tala Lee-Turton.

Her whole life has been spent

meticulously moving her body

beyond its limits as a classically

trained dancer. But now she’s

pushing the boundaries of ballet,

exercising her creativity to produce

performances that defy the

customary conventions and boxed

in views of the past.

Ten years ago, aged just 16, Tala

left her home in Barnsley to study

at the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet

Academy in Moscow. Following

four intense years of rigorous

training, she became only the third

British female to graduate from the

Bolshoi in its then 245-year history.

Few have the dedication and

drive to make it to the top of

such an incredibly competitive

profession. But Tala fervently leapt

into professional contracts with

the English National Ballet and

Astrakhan State Theatre of Opera

and Ballet, dancing in the classics

such as Swan Lake, Giselle, and

The Nutcracker.

Then the Covid lockdown hit in

2020 which broke the cycle that

Tala had found herself stuck in. This


hiatus from performing enabled

Tala to see life through different

eyes, encouraging her to grand

jeté towards more meaningful

opportunities by launching her own

production company to create short

films and ballets set within South


“Life moved really quickly from

school to training to professional

contract, and only now have I

had the chance to take stock and

evaluate. I’ve got more clarity as a

dancer, something which I never

got from training, and this is the

first time I’m making things for me,”

Tala says.

Tala has been dancing since she

was four years old, when her mum

Sara enrolled her on the books

at Cudworth’s Fearons Middleton

School of Dance to make new

friends. Ballet was prioritised and,

having done well in her exams, Tala

was pushed to progress through

to associate programmes. Aged

11, she won a government-funded

scholarship at a performing arts

boarding school where she was

told by a tutor she’d never make it

as a classical dancer.

“Dance is very much a lifestyle,

and children and their parents get

thrust onto that crazy rollercoaster.

My family had no previous dance


Tala was commissioned to create a

dance film called Chinese Laundry based

on her paternal family history. The plot

follows a Chinese immigrant trying to fit

in with life in South Yorkshire

experience; we didn’t know what

to expect. In the big eco-system

of dance there’s a lot at play and

many aspects to consider, such

as psychology and sociology. I

hope eventually there will be some

proper research into these barriers

that people don’t realise exist.”

Nobody in her family dreamed

that Tala’s career would unfold the

way it has, but for her she says

it was always going to be about

dance. But having given so much

of herself over the last ten years,

she’s now throwing out the rule

book and advocating her own

vision for the future of ballet.

“With ballet, the training is more

like that of an athlete; it doesn’t

teach you how to be creative or

an individual. You’re taught to be

identical to the girl in front which

can create a homogenous mass.

If even one finger is out of place

the line is incorrect. It’s a fantastic

skill and very valuable, but there

should be time set aside to develop

autonomy and individuality which

would serve classical dancers well

in the end.”

Change is embedded within

performing arts; it’s not fixed like a

portrait or sculpture. But ballet has

seen a slow pace of change, still

entrenched in outdated sensibilities

and decision making dominated by

the white male gaze.

Tala’s projects aim to break

down elitist connotations and

make ballet relevant to modern


“I have a real drive to create

content in South Yorkshire. Our

region often gets a bad rap from

people with warped perceptions,

but we have such a culturally rich

society full of multi-faceted people.

My grandad was a lorry driver

who loved opera. It’s all about

the audience and I’m not here to

dictate how someone should enjoy

and interpret a classical art like

ballet as that only serves to widen

the gap.”

Her past and present

productions touch on pressing

issues close to her heart, such

as female empowerment. Tala

has been keen to champion the

work of like-minded women on

similar paths in their careers, such

as composer Grace Stubbings,

director Patricia Zhou, and

choreographers Zhongjing Fan and

Krystal Lowe.

“I’m lucky to have strong female

role models in my life and I admire

the grit they’ve all shown. My mum

Sara raised me as a single parent

and fundraised to send me to

the Bolshoi, all whilst running a

successful business.”

As part of WE Wonder Noir at

Wentworth Woodhouse earlier this

year, Tala was commissioned to

create a dance film called Chinese

Laundry based on her paternal

family history. The plot follows a

Chinese immigrant trying to fit in

with life in South Yorkshire and flits

between a laundrette and the Peak


“I’ve wanted to explore my

heritage for a while now. My

grandparents came over to the

UK from China in the 1960s and

opened a Chinese takeaway. Then

when my dad Tom was a similar

age to what I am now, he opened

a dry cleaning business. We shot

the film in one day in Dad’s dry

cleaners and in the Peaks.”

In August, Tala will bring ballet

back to Wentworth Woodhouse

110 years after prima ballerina

Anna Pavlova was reported to have

performed for King George V there

in 1912 with a four-date showing

of her current production, No Time

Like the Present.

This one-act ballet challenges

traditional conventions such as

setting, costume and music. All

the dancers are young women,

comprising varied dance

backgrounds, heritage and

experience. Tutus and pointe shoes

are replaced with unconventional

textures and flashes of neon,

while the musical score swaps

an orchestra for synthesizer. The

performance will be given outdoors,

removing the walls of a theatre

which can feel intimidating to some.

“I chose Wentworth Woodhouse

as the venue due to its rich cultural

landscape. I feel it’s representative

of a South Yorkshire community -

my grandma walks there regularly.

We spent weeks there last summer

doing research and development

in the gardens, where visitors had

the chance to see us rehearse. The

part of the gardens we’ve chosen

has a slight incline, so it’s a natural

amphitheatre and will mean the

audience will feel like they’re having

a picnic semi-immersed in the


Following this, Tala will start

research and development into

another new production called

Here Lies based on the unrecorded

graves of women at Sheffield

General Cemetery, symbolising the

social constructs that bury women

in life and death. Here Lies will be

a duet between Tala and cellist,

Roxanna Albayati.

Alongside producing and

training, Tala is back in education,

studying an art management

degree at Goldsmiths, University

of London. This has proved

invaluable for Tala, with networking

opportunities opening doors to

funding and grants opportunities

which will enable her to further

develop her productions to take

them to different venues or create

triple bills.

Life changing events often lead

to us turning to art and culture to

tell us about ourselves. Had it not

been for the pandemic flipping her

world on its head, perhaps Tala

wouldn’t have been afforded the

opportunity to elevate her work

beyond the remits of what had

been ingrained in her from a child.

“My days are tougher now as I

lead on operational and creative

decisions as well as performing.

I’ve also done a lot of bid writing as

my work is all funding dependent.

But as I also still dance in my own

productions and as a freelancer,

I still train to maintain a high

technical standard and develop

my craft physically, stylistically and

artistically. So, training is just as

intense as it always has been, with

ballet and contemporary technique

classes, cycling, yoga, crosstraining

as well as rehearsals.”

No Time Like the Present

No Time Like the Present is on at Wentworth Woodhouse

across the last two weekends in August, from Friday 19th to

Sunday 28th. It will also be on at Sheffield Botanical Gardens

on 24th and 25th August.

Tickets available from May at 5




With Good Measure Pharmacy

How can your local pharmacy help you?

Community pharmacies are a common fixture of

high streets, neighbourhood centres and even

supermarkets, with each playing a vital part in

helping people live longer and healthier lives.

Nationally, we make around

1.6million visits to over 11,000

pharmacies every day. In fact, most

people see their pharmacist more

than any of the other three pillars

of primary care – GPs, dentists and


But the role of a community

pharmacy goes far beyond

just dispensing prescriptions

or supplying over-the-counter

medicines. Pharmacies make a

substantial contribution to the

overall healthcare landscape,

even more so since the start of

the pandemic when other areas of

primary care may have been harder

to access.

Pharmacies offer a wide range

of healthcare services, from

vaccinations to health checks and

help with healthy living. The advice

they provide, combined with their

accessible nature, acts as a buffer

for the NHS, reducing pressure on

other healthcare providers.

Many pharmacies are open late

and at weekends, and you don’t

need an appointment to speak

to a pharmacist. Community

pharmacies across England deliver

58 million informal, appointmentfree

consultations per year, saving

the NHS some 24 million GP


Pharmacists have a unique

expertise and knowledge in the safe

use of medicines and are on-hand

to advise about how patients can

get the most out of their medication.

But we have also continued to

develop our skills to provide more

clinical services and support with

minor health concerns such as

tummy troubles, common viruses,

or general aches and pains.

We have so much to offer

patients, but many people don’t

realise the full extent of our services.

So, how can

your pharmacy

help you?

New Medicine

Service (NMS)

If you have a long-term condition

such as asthma, COPD, type 2

diabetes or high blood pressure,

pharmacists are able to provide

support with any medicines you

have been prescribed to help

improve medicines adherence.

This has recently been expanded

to now include conditions such as

high cholesterol, Parkinson’s

disease, epilepsy, gout and

osteoporosis. Free consultations are

available with your local pharmacist

to get the most from newly

prescribed medicines.

NHS Community



Service (CPCS)

Launched in 2019, the CPCS

connects patients with pharmacies

for emergency supplies of

medicines or for advice on minor

conditions following NHS 111 or

GP referral. Should the patient need

to be escalated or referred to an

alternative service, the pharmacist

can arrange this.



Pharmacists administer a range

of vaccines including the NHS flu

vaccination to eligible adult patient

groups, Covid-19 vaccines and

boosters, and travel vaccinations

for private patients. Some larger

pharmacy groups also offer

vaccines for HPV and pneumonia.

Healthy Living

As part of their essential services,

all pharmacies should offer advice

about healthy living. This may vary

at each pharmacy but often includes

help with weight management,

stopping smoking, or blood

pressure, cholesterol and blood

sugar checks. Some pharmacies

also provide sexual health services

such as emergency contraception

and STI screening.

Above all, community pharmacies

are adaptable and will continue

to strive to further improve patient

outcomes in the communities we

Thoroughly modern


with Chris Moody of Moodyhair

A jubilee year is a great

opportunity to look back and

celebrate everything that’s been

achieved so far, and fashion

is no exception.

In the world of hair we find ourselves revisiting

and celebrating looks and styles we enjoyed

in years gone by and adding to them a very

modern twist.

Two of the biggest trends that appeared in

2021 and are still going strong this year are the

old ‘70s favourites, The Mullet and The Shag. Both

styles have been given 21st century makeovers

to make them softer and more stylish than their

50-year-old ancestors.

The modern-day Mullet is a far cry from the

footballers’ favourite of yesteryear. It’s a much

gentler and feminised shape, still combining those

familiar trademarks of shorter around the face and

longer lengths through the back. If cut with razors,

it can be very wispy and soft, or more structured

and textured if cut with scissors.

The key here, as always, is suitability. The

Mullet shape is very rectangular, creating narrow

sides and emphasising a longer shape. If your

face shape is very narrow, longer or squarer, this

may not be the best option for you. But if you

have a wider or circular face shape and want to

create a narrower look then this will work very well.

Depending on your hair type it can be very easy

to maintain, with a lot of work going into the hair

cut shape so all it needs is a quick dry and some

texture products to enhance the look.

A more universal and all-round mellower option

is the longer, more layered haircut of The Shag.

You may also have seen or read the term ‘Wolf

Cut’ which is basically a slightly fuller, more layered

version. This type of shape will suit almost any hair

type, texture and face shape, with lots of length

and layer variations. Hair is still shorter around

the face but with a gentler transition into the back

length, with lots of layering to make the hair soft

and textured.

If you have finer hair texture, just be careful

about the layering process. Although it can create

texture and softness, and allow for a very full blowdry,

layering does make hair thinner; too much can

leave the perimeter of your hair wispy and weak

as short layers usually need a short perimeter.

Equally, if you want to keep more length, you’ll

probably need longer layers. If you have thick,

heavy hair you can afford to go strong here with

lots of layering and texture.

As always be sure to ask you stylist about

adding a little extra time for a consultation. Let

them guide and advise you on suitability and after

care before you take the plunge.

It’s time for all of us to celebrate so why not do

it with new hair. Who knows, you may be wearing

tomorrow’s future classic haircut.

Tailored treatments

you can trust

While ageing is inevitable, there are tricks and treatments to help

you look timeless and feel confident in your skin. But if you’re

considering a non-surgical cosmetic treatment, don’t just put your

face in the hands of anyone.

At FACE Medical Aesthetics in Brinsworth,

upholding medical ethics and patient safety is

paramount to their practice. The clinic opened

in 2019 and is led by former district nurse

Danielle Tolley who has been a reputable,

qualified aesthetics practitioner for almost

five years.

One new treatment

is Morpheus 8 which

combines the benefits of

micro-needling and radio

frequency for natural skin


Danielle is constantly refreshing her technique

knowledge and completing additional training.

She is one of 24 advanced practitioners who has

been given a scholarship on the renowned Dr

Ayad Harbs’ Aesthetics Intelligence® intensive

fellowship programme which aims to produce a

new generation of aesthetic experts and trainers.

Many people are opting to try dermal fillers

and wrinkle relaxers for a fresher, more youthful

appearance. Full face rejuvenation continues to

be a popular treatment at FACE Medical, where

filler is administered using an advanced multilayering

technique to replace lost facial volume.

They are also seeing many more new clients

for corrective work to fix complications of previous

injectables arising from improper technique,

lack of medical training, or unawareness of the

anatomy of the face. Even when undertaken by

medically trained nurses or doctors, there will

always be an element of risk, but FACE Medical

are able to timely manage complications or

concerns to prevent harm or lasting damage.

One new treatment is Morpheus 8 which

combines the benefits of micro-needling and

radio frequency for natural skin remodelling

deep under the skin’s surface. FACE Medical

have brought this pioneering treatment loved by

celebrities to Rotherham and are looking forward

to helping clients see a visible difference in their

loose and sagging skin.

And if you’re looking to get set and glow this

summer, how about trying the 3D HydrO2 facial

for the ultimate skincare treat. If your skin is in

need of a deep cleanse, the hydrofacial uses

seven technologies to draw out impurities, wake

up dull skin, and give an intense hydration boost

Rotherham as the world’s first

Children’s Capital Of Culture

This summer, see Rotherham

through the eyes, ears and

actions of its young people with

a host of family-friendly events

planned as part of the borough’s

journey to become the world’s

first Children’s Capital of Culture

in 2025.

The journey to 2025 starts now, with a host of

opportunities, events, and activities for children

and young people in Rotherham aged 0 – 25.

This includes the Young Producers programme,

which has given 16-to-25 year olds a golden

opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge,

and experience while working part-time to help

Rotherham become the world’s first Children’s

Capital of Culture.

In a bid to retain talent and create a place

young people can thrive, over 50 Young

Producers traineeships were created at some

of the town’s leading leisure and tourism sites:

Wentworth Woodhouse, Gulliver’s Valley Resort,

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

(RMBC), Grimm & Co, Magna, Rotherham Open

Arts Renaissance (ROAR), Rotherham United

Community Sports Trust (RUCST), The Source

Academy, and Affinity CIC.

Hundreds of young people aged between 16-

25 from across the borough applied to take part

in the project, a platform to upskill and access

life-changing training opportunities.

All Young Producers were selected for their

vision, hopes and aspirations for the town rather

than qualifications or experience. Coming from a

range of backgrounds and abilities, some have


been through college and university and looking

to take the first steps in the careers, while others

have an innate creative flair. Placements were

chosen based on where they thought they’d

like to work, as well as where the Children’s

Capital of Culture team thought their skills would

shine brightest.

With a brief to create a series of colourful,

family-orientated summer events, the

Young Producers were given autonomy and

independence to crack on with their plans, while

also encouraged to endorse ideas when pitching

and presenting.

Working under the wings of some of the

town’s biggest cultural influences, all of the

young people have learnt invaluable on-the-job

skills, collaborating to share ideas and harness

their individual strengths. From planning and

design to promotion and delivery, every aspect of

hosting events has been the responsibility of the

Young Producers.

Clifton Park will see two events taking place.

The first is an ongoing exhibition at Clifton Park

Museum that tells the story of the Children’s

Capital of Culture, and showcases objects

from the museum’s collection linked to different

generation’s experiences of youth and childhood.

In July, a mysterious sculpture will appear

somewhere in the park, designed by Young

Producers with the help of innovative outdoor

artists, Kaleider.

At Rotherham’s magical literacy charity, Grimm

& Co., Young Producers have been conjuring up

schemes to chronicle a festival based on how

stories are performed to younger audiences.

Imagination has also been a powerful attribute

for ROAR’s Young Producers who are working

with local artists to host an event with a strong

environmental focus based on the mythical

Thurcroft guardian trolls.

Upholding Rotherham United Community

Sports Trust’s ethos of improving sports

participation, their Young Producers have been

building up to launch a pop-up museum at New

York Stadium, working with schools to assemble

a dance routine based on Rotherham’s Arthur

Wharton, the first black professional footballer.

At Wentworth Woodhouse, filmmakers and

animators of the future have had an exciting

opportunity to film, edit and present short films

at the grand stately home known for its allure as

a TV and film location, working with high-tech kit

such as augmented reality, auto-cue, multi-cam

and three-point lighting machines. One team are

creating a music video based on mental health,

while the other is organising an immersive film

premiere complete with red carpet and paparazzi.

Their idea includes creating a quest through

state rooms in the house, where guests can

get involved by jumping into sets, experiencing

augmented reality, and taking part in filming.

As well as the traineeships already in place,

there are also other opportunities for young

people to take their first steps towards a

bright future.

A Young Creatives Network has been launched

to help those aged between 11-25 develop their

skills, confidence, and creative talents. There are

a wide range of inspiring workshops, classes and

events of opportunities covering everything from

games design and filmmaking to journalism and


The Source Academy is also delivering drop-in

skills sessions at Riverside Library this May for

people aged 13-25. The sessions will provide

individual advice, career guidance and support

with CVs and interviews. Sessions will cover

a broad range of topics including first aid and

fire marshalling, stress management, growth

mindset, resilience in the workplace, and interview

techniques. There is also an opportunity to

achieve a Level 1 award in customer service or

work skills.

The whole programme has been made

possible thanks to funding of over £1.8m from

the UK Community Renewal Fund, as well as

additional funding from Arts Council England and

Restoring the


of Eldon Street

Eldon Street has been the

principal gateway into Barnsley

town centre for over 170 years.

But what are your memories

of one of the most historic and

best-loved streets in Barnsley?

Do you remember Eldon Street as a thriving

street for businesses, echoing with the voices of

entrepreneurs past and present? A street where

nervous teenagers started their first jobs at Frank

Bird or Leslie Frances; where forthcoming nuptials

were sealed with a kiss and a ring bought from

Benj Harral’s; where appetites were satisfied with

a Barnsley chop or pork pie from Albert Hirsts; or

where ladies could get virtually everything they

needed from A Porter and Sons, the town’s first

female-focused department store.

Perhaps you spent many a night in your prime

revelling in Eldon Street’s culture at one of its

pubs, clubs, theatres and cinemas. A party street

where the carnival and parades came to town;

where eager workers clocking off on a Friday hit

the Bunny Run pub trail; where teens flocked to

the pictures each weekend to see blockbusters

for pocket money prices at the Gaumont, Odeon

or Parkway; or where romance blossomed for

love’s young dream at The Civic’s teens and

twenties discos.


Maybe you remember the assortment of

architecture, each adding to Eldon Street’s eclectic

appearance. Bookended by two grand, classical

style buildings - the canted Yorkshire Penny Bank

at the Market Hill end and the Queen’s Hotel with

carved stone heads at the Regent Street end –

with the Baroque style Civic building in the centre.

But Eldon Street has lost its shine in recent

decades, time and neglect wearing away its

unique character.

Thanks to £4million in funding from Historic

England and Barnsley Council, a four-year project

is set to reinvigorate Eldon Street as the beating

heart of Barnsley.

In 2020, Eldon Street was given High Street

Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) status as part of

a national programme aimed at unlocking the

potential of high streets to fuel economic, social

and cultural recovery.

The Eldon Street HSHAZ project is led by

buildings archaeologist Dr Tegwen Roberts from

Barnsley Museums. She is working with artists,

students and communities in Barnsley to share

creative ways to make Eldon Street an enlivening

place that provides a new future for the high street.

Tegwen says: “Eldon Street has always had its

own identity and we want to make the most of that.

It’s a beautiful and unique space and the character

of the individual buildings can be enhanced to

create the vibrancy a modern high street needs.”

It’s easy to overlook the significance of a street

A key part of the

project involves funding

conservation work to

restore, repair or revamp

some of the historic

shopfronts and buildings

on Eldon Street’s west side

and its structures, especially when you’re going

about your business on autopilot. To the naked

eye the shop fronts may seem mundane. But look

a little further and you’ll see these buildings are

silent witnesses to past eras and milestones, their

architectural charm and imperfections telling the

story of years gone by.

The HSHAZ project has been working with

Yorkshire performers Mark Mark Productions and

We Great Ladies to develop alternative history

tours and a wider engagement programme to

retell those stories to new audiences.

This summer you might see three Edwardian

characters – the Un-Naturalists – walking through

Eldon Street and the Victorian Arcade sharing

stories of the people who once made these streets

tick. Maybe you’ll see two brides teetering down

Eldon Street, or ‘80s game show hosts having a

nosey in your shopping bag.

Earlier this year at the Love Barnsley Festival,


Barnsley-born artist Liz West brought her colourful

Hymn to the Big Wheel installation to the Glass

Works Square to shed a new light on Eldon Street.

And in September, poet laureate, Simon Armitage,

will be showcasing new work titled ‘Barnsley:

an unnatural history’ inspired by stories of

Eldon Street.

There has also been an animation produced

highlighting the previously untold stories of the

many women entrepreneurs of Eldon Street from

the 19th and 20th centuries who disregarded

societal norms to build blossoming businesses.

Women ran pubs, confectioners, cafés,

draperies, tobacconists and more, but they rarely

advertised under their full names, often relying

on word of mouth and repeat custom due to

the way some parts of society viewed women


One of the most influential women business

owners on Eldon Street was Ann Porter who

opened Barnsley’s first department store

specifically for women. Rather than inheriting

a family business, Ann set up a small shop on

Sheffield Road after her husband, Benjamin Porter,

a gas maker, died in the 1870s and she was left

to raise five sons. The shop then relocated to a

larger store on Eldon Street which had previously

been a textile warehouse and animal feed shop.

A Porter & Sons sold everything from kitchenware

You might see three

Edwardian characters

Street and the Victorian

Arcade sharing stories of

the people who once made

these streets tick.

to fashions and all customers received a free cup

of tea.

The building is one of the oldest surviving on

Eldon Street and would once have had a double

frontage, the off-road entrance having become

hidden by the neighbouring building. It’s now

owned by Leslie Frances hair design.

A key part of the project involves funding

conservation work to restore, repair or revamp

some of the historic shopfronts and buildings

on Eldon Street’s west side. Business owners

or landlords can apply for grants to improve the

condition of buildings, reinstate lost architectural

features and bring empty upper-floor space back

into use.

The face of Eldon Street has continued to

change with each new decade since it was first

laid out in 1840 following an act of Parliament

that called for a programme of improvements to

Barnsley town centre. Eldon Street became the

first of a new set of wider streets created on the

edge of the medieval settlement and soon became

a mixed commercial and cultural area.

By the time the new railway opened in 1850,

Eldon Street had become the main gateway into

town and this connection has long continued.

Horse-drawn taxi cabs soon became trams and

trolleybuses. People from outside the town who

have ever visited on public transport will have

walked down Eldon Street.

Throughout the 20th century, Eldon Street and

its adjoining Victorian Arcade, which opened in

1892, became home to a range of household

names. Woolworth, Halfords, the Famous Army

Stores, Thorntons and Burtons were some of

the bigger national brands. But over the years,

Eldon Street has seen all manner of shops and

businesses, from photographers to plumbers,

cleaners to chemists, and wallpaper shops to wine

and spirits merchants.

Benjamin Harral’s ring shop was one of the

most well-known shops, famous for its elaborate

window displays and magnificent marble façade,

a real showpiece frontage, much of which has

been stripped away. But one peculiar element that

does remain is a long, thin protruding window. Its

origins were previously obscure, until the HSHAZ

project brought to light a memory from an elderly

gentleman of a golden clock that was in the

window in the 1930s.

After some digging, Tegwen found the golden

clock was in fact a time ball, a now antiquated

time-keeping device that was primarily placed on

observatories for use in maritime navigation. How

this fisherman’s friend ended up in Barnsley is still

unknown, but Harral was a clock and watch maker

as well as a jeweller. His time ball used the wireless

signal from the Eiffel Tower to raise and drop the

ball at 11am each day

One of Barnsley’s proudest buildings, and a

key component in the Eldon Street HSHAZ, is

The Civic which paved the way for selfdevelopment

and education for ordinary workingclass

folk in Barnsley.

It opened in 1878 as the public hall and

Mechanics Institute, funded by the Harvey family

who were linen makers and philanthropists. The

Harveys wanted to provided people in Barnsley

with access to arts, culture and education. Along

with six shops on the ground floor, the public hall

had a library, reading room, games room and

lecture hall. It also housed the public arts school

on the top floor, which was a predecessor of

Barnsley College.

The public hall, which later became the

Harvey Institute and then the Civic Theatre, also

had a 2,000-seater hall which hosted many

variety shows, cabarets speeches, prize days

and exhibitions.

The Civic Theatre closed to the public in the late

‘90s and its shutters on Eldon Street have been

down for some years. Redevelopment in the 2000s

focused on the rear of the building which created a

new art gallery and theatre space, but the current

Civic only uses about a third of the building.

However, part of the Eldon Street HSHAZ

funding is being used to restore the magnificent

Victorian front entrance of the building with

elaborate mosaic floors and a grand ceiling.

Plans include creating a food and drink offer,

studio, workshop and events spaces, plus an

extended gallery to offer more shows, events

and exhibitions.

The Eldon Street High Street Heritage

Action Zone runs alongside other largescale

developments in Barnsley such as the

regeneration of the historic market and the creation

of the Glass Works retail and leisure space.

High streets are no longer just about shopping.

Visitors are looking for an experience, and

Barnsley Council is committed to improving the

quality of the environment and re-engaging with

the public to retain that experience. Restoring

Eldon Street’s character and historic features while

introducing a creative arts programme will help

make it a unique and attractive destination for

residents and visitors alike.

Twisted –

Festival of

Natural Art

Saturday 28th May – Sunday

12th June

Do you remember Barnsley’s

fantastical beasts from last year?

Well, the giant willow sculptures are

back for 2022 alongside a host of

natural art events.

The Twisted trail will see eight

beasts pop up around the town

centre at various venues from

Eldon Street to the Metrodome.

Barnsley Council have worked

with three willow weavers, Sarah

Hayes, Emma Parkins and Leilah

Vyner to create sculptures using

sustainable materials.

As with last year, the beasts

are inspired by Barnsley legends,

people and myths. The popular

griffin and unicorn are returning

along with six new beasts created

specifically for the event. The eight

remaining original beasts from

last year – bear, cat, elephant,

kestrel, lion, mermaid, reindeer and

whale - will take pride of place at

Barnsley’s principal towns.

In keeping with the natural

theme, a series of events are

planned over the two weeks.

On launch day, join in the fun

from 11am to 4pm. Activities for

families to take part in will include

willow weaving and land art school

in the Glass Works Square, with

stone balancing, mandala art

and chalkboard painting. Take a

free ride on the Bewonderment

Machine, a cycle powered

carousel. Barnsley Libraries will

also be doing readings of the

popular Stick Man story.

There will be a special visit from

the Mayor of Schwabisch Gmund,

Barnsley’s twin town in Germany,

as well as performances from

the Frumptarn Guggenband and

Silkstone Morris Dancers.

Throughout opening weekend,

why not join the Un-Naturalists

for a walking history tour with

a difference. These eccentric

performers will be retelling

Barnsley’s heritage from the town

hall to the Glass Works at 12pm

and 2.30pm on Saturday 28th and

Sunday 29th May.

From Monday 30th May, be

amazed by spectacular sand art

as artists Sand in Your Eyes create

a giant sculpture in Glass Works

Square. Across the jubilee bank

holiday weekend on Thursday

2nd and Friday 3rd June, they

will also be holding family sand

workshops for visitors to make

their own sculptures – albeit on

a smaller scale.

On Saturday 4th June, more

natural art activities continue with

willow dream catcher making and

Royal cardboard crown workshops

at the Lightbox.

Barnsley Live

Saturday 18th June 12pm-10pm

Music lovers rejoice. The everpopular

charity live music festival is

back for 2022 with the biggest and

best Barnsley Live yet.

After last year’s gig in October,

the annual one-day event is back

to its early summer slot where

over 200 bands and musicians are

set to take to stages across 20 of

the very best venues in the town

centre. The line-up will include a

range of genres, from rock and

punk to folk and blues, as well as a

bit of pop for good measure.

The free event showcases an

eclectic mix of venues that are just

a stone’s throw from each other,

creating a trail of performances in

micropubs and mega crowds. New

for this year is an outdoor stage in

the Glass Works Square, bringing

an urban festival feel to the

town centre.

As ever, Barnsley Live supports

nominated local charities through

the donations of its generous

attendees. Not only will you be

helping raise funds for good

causes, but also backing some

of the town’s first-rate musicians.

your listening schedule, download

Jack goes back

to his roots

He’s been a symphonic

Coalfield crooner, a

country and western

cowboy, and everyone’s

favourite pantomime


But now the Lamproom Theatre’s

inimitable Jack Land Noble goes

back to his roots, bringing the

sounds of the Emerald Ireland to

Barnsley with a one-off performance

of his new solo album, Jacky & His

Celtic Soul, on Saturday 25th June.

Inspired by a rich family history of

Irish descent, self-taught singersongwriter

Jack has been working on

new solo material since last August

to add to his multi-faceted musical

ability. His new record is a ten track

compilation of original Irish folk and

country songs, laced with strong

elements of R&B, Northern soul, funk

and rockabilly; creating a truly unique

fusion of traditional and modern

Celtic music.

Though not strictly a concept

album, Jack says his latest work links

together with an overall ‘emerald

tinge.’ Blending melancholy ballads

with unforgettable foot-tappers,

the work has influences of Irish

folk greats such as Van Morrison,

Gilbert O’Sullivan and Ronnie Drew

of The Dubliners.

Jack has worked with some of

Yorkshire’s finest session musicians,

adding originality and iconic

instrumentation to his songs. At the

live performance at the Lamproom in

June, it will be the first time all such

players plus Jack have performed

together on stage, promising an

evening of all-out musicianship.

The finished LP has been coarranged

and produced by Jack’s

musical partner from The Coalfield

Symphony, Robert Cooper. The

songs were recorded at Studio

5B Barnsley in Autumn 2021, then

mixed and mastered by Rob while

Jack was away for panto season in

Milton Keynes - performing alongside

Ashley Banjo and Diversity.

A true showman at heart, the

‘Jacky & His Celtic Soul’ LP has a

prologue and epilogue which adds

another dimension to the listening

experience. Jack’s parents are part

of the Northern Clubland fabric, so

it was only fitting that his newest

work tells the story of the northern

soundscape. Listeners will feel like

they’re at a Working Men’s Club,

as Jack - in the guise of concert

secretary - welcomes us into his

distinctive ‘Celtic Soul’ world.

Tickets for Jacky & His Celtic

Soul are on sale now for £18 via

the Lamproom website: www. or by

calling the box office on 01226

200075. The album will be

available to download on Amazon

Music, Apple Music and Spotify

from Friday 3rd June. Physical CD

copies of the album, in addition to

limited edition vinyl 45s will also

be available via social media and

A royal


As the UK gets set to celebrate

the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

in June, one village in South

Yorkshire holds a historic affinity

with the British royal family.

Developed as a resplendent display of power by

the Earls Fitzwilliam from Wentworth Woodhouse,

for centuries Elsecar has been an attraction for

visiting aristocracy and royalty.

Elsecar was perhaps the first of its kind, a model

village with cottages, a school and church built

for workers at the Earl’s colliery and ironworks.

Its successors Saltaire, Bourneville and Port Light

were heavily influenced by the Elsecar model.

The village epitomised the Fitzwilliam family’s

desire to boast of their might, influence and

vision. It was built at great expense, pulling out

all the stops whenever a royal visit was planned;

of which there were many during the 19th and

20th centuries.


One of the earliest known visits of the Royal

Family to Elsecar is when King George III and

Queen Charlotte’s third son, the Duke of Clarence,

visited in 1828 two years before he would become

King William IV.

William was the first royal to ever go

underground when he descended Elsecar Old

Colliery. The Fitzwilliams had two grand stone

colliery entrances built for noble guests to walk

through, evidence of which were found through

the Elsecar Heritage Action Zone scheme,

a partnership between Historic England and

Barnsley Council.


The Earls intended for Elsecar to be in the

eyes and minds of influential visitors. But in 1851,

the 5th Earl, Charles Wentworth-Fitzwilliam,

showcased their renowned commodities to

the world at the Great Exhibition of products

and industry. Miners from Elsecar New Colliery

managed to extract an eight-foot column of

coal from the pit which was transported to

Crystal Palace.

The Fitzwilliams were one of 100,000 British

manufacturing exhibitors at the event which

attracted over six million visitors. Queen Victoria

was reported to have been taken outside to marvel

at the imposing column of coal.



Inspired by the Great Exhibition, the 6th Earl,

William Wentworth-Fitzwilliam held an exhibition of

fine art and industry at the Market Hall (what is now

Milton Hall) in 1886.

By royal appointment, he invited Queen

Victoria’s cousin, Princess Mary Adelaide,

Duchess of Teck, to open the event. She was

joined by the full band of the 1st West Yorkshire

Yeoman Cavalry, of which the 6th Earl was in

command for forty years. The Duchess was joined

by her husband and daughter, Princess Victoria

Mary ‘May’ who would later go on to marry King

George V.

The event would see the Earl’s collection of

Canaletto paintings brought down from Wentworth

Woodhouse, along with a display of works and

inventions by over 600 entrants. There was a band

contest, cricket matches, pony showcase, and

reduced fare rail trips.

Throughout the village, residents had gone to

town on designing and creating special gardens

for Her Royal Highness’ visit. But a big dust storm

that day would dampen their efforts.


What is now the children’s nursery within Elsecar

Heritage Centre was once the Earl’s private railway

station which opened in 1870. It was primarily

used to transport the Earl’s visiting parties to St

Leger race meetings in Doncaster, known as the

EFW Specials.

The station also had a special Royal Standard

issued by the trainline which was to be flown

when royalty was visiting. One such occasion was

in 1891 when Edward, Prince of Wales took the

special royal coach to St Leger races.

Thousands turned out to see Prince Edward,

the eldest son and heir apparent of Queen Victoria

and Prince Albert.

Edward was a keen horseracing enthusiast

whose many horses went on to win stakes at

St Leger, Newmarket and Derby as well as the

Grand National.

many will have seen the

iconic photos of the bowler

hat-clad king arriving

at Elsecar to become the

first reigning monarch to

descend a coal mine


Perhaps the most famous, well-documented

royal visit to Elsecar is when King George V and

Queen Mary came in 1912. It was notable for

the fact that the King went underground despite

a terrible mining disaster in the nearby area the

day before.

George’s oronation was the previous year

following the death of his father, Edward VII. At the

time, the country was in the midst of social unease

and it was suggested the King take a tour of

industrial areas to observe people in their working

conditions, understand how they made a living,

and better connect with the working class.

During his visit to South Yorkshire, the monarch

and Queen consort were invited to stay at

Wentworth Woodhouse as a guest of Billy, 7th

Earl Fitzwilliam who was known for being the most

grandiose of all Earl Fitzwilliams.

However, the King was of the opposite

disposition and actively discouraged any majestic


decorations during his visit so not as to place any

further expense on the struggling communities.

The royal couple visited Conisbrough Castle,

Clifton Park Museum, Silverwood Colliery,

Hickleton Hall and Barnsley’s Rylands

Glass Works.

But many will have seen the iconic photos of

the bowler hat-clad king arriving at Elsecar to

become the first reigning monarch to descend a

coal mine. This was all the more poignant as 91

men had been killed only the day before when two

explosions happened at Cadeby pit.


During the Second World War, King George

VI and the Queen Mother visited Elsecar Main

Colliery to have lunch with 70 pit workers. A roast

beef dinner was prepared by a woman from

the village, with the Queen Mother reportedly

commenting that they had not had a better meal

for a long time.

The King and Queen were figures of the fight

against fascism and had refused to leave Britain

during the war. Instead, they toured the country

to make morale-boosting visits as a symbol of

national resistance.

Their visit to Elsecar was part of a six-hour trip

to West and South Yorkshire coalfields, where they

also visited Wentworth to see the open cast mining

workings and giant excavators.


Fifty years after her mother and father, Queen

Elizabeth II made the journey to Elsecar in the mid-

90s to officially open Elsecar Heritage Centre.

After the final colliery, Elsecar Main, had closed

in 1984, ending 230 years of mining in the village,

the ironworks and workshops were sold off before

being taken over by Barnsley Council.

Since its opening, Elsecar Heritage Centre has

continued to flourish with the New Yard now home

to various independent businesses and shops.


The most recent royal visit to Elsecar was in

2015 when Prince Edward became the seventh

generation to visit when he came to officially mark

the conservation of the 1795 Newcomen Beam


His visit also gave Prince Edward an insight into

well the area’s proud iron making and coalmining

past, speaking with local businesses residents and

school children.

The Newcome Engine is a brilliant piece of

machinery that has been described as the most

important piece of industrial heritage in the world.

It is the oldest steam engine still in its original

location and was restored to its former glory

thanks to a £465,500 Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

at The Pantry

Treat yourself to a visit to The

Pantry at Elsecar and tuck into

their range of delicious, freshly

made and locally sourced food.

Based in one of the oldest buildings on site,

the former watchman’s house, The Pantry is a

great place to start your visit to Elsecar Heritage

Centre. Feel right at home in the charming, cosy

tearoom, or bask in the warmer weather with their

glorious outdoor seating surrounded by flowers

and foliage.

The Pantry first opened almost 13 years ago,

and in that time they have made doubters eat

humble pie as they have continued to thrive

through a dedication to providing the highest

quality of food made fresh on-site.

Inside, the smell of fresh baking wafts through

the tearoom from the Victorian kitchen where

owner Jane and her team of bakers are busy

puds. The Pantry have their own range of jams,

curds and chutneys, a unique blend of coffee,

and use locally grown and sourced products

where possible.

And it wouldn’t be a café without a tempting

selection of cakes – but you’ll be spoilt for choice

at The Pantry. Their sweet treat display gives a

French patisserie a run for its money, bursting

with cakes, scones, tarts and traybakes that

look just as good as they taste. All their mouthwatering

Channel your

inner child

with a visit to Rivelin Valley

For a free and fun day

out for all the family,

Rivelin Valley has it all.

One the edge of Hillsborough

linking Sheffield to the Peak District,

Rivelin Valley has long been a

popular place for its natural beauty

and serene waterside location.

Along with waterfalls, paddling

spots and an abundance of wildlife,

Rivelin Valley is also home to a play

area, water splash zone, café and

toilets, making it a children’s haven,

especially in the summer.

Go nature exploring through

the woodland, play pooh sticks

down the river, criss-cross over the

stepping stones, or dip your toes in

the cool, fresh water.

The area has been protected

by the Rivelin Valley Conservation

Group for the last 30 years who

have worked to encourage wildlife

habits and reverse the decline of the

nature trail.

The Rivelin Valley nature and

There are remains of 20 watermills

and 21 mill dams from as early as the

16th century

heritage trail is a three-mile straight

route that covers a series of

beautiful riverside walks mixing

nature and industry.

Lined by ruins and remnants of

industry, Rivelin Valley is steeped

in historical and archaeological

interest. There are remains of 20

watermills and 21 mill dams from

as early as the 16th century, which

played a key role in Sheffield’s

cutlery and steel industries. As these

industries became less dependent

on waterpower and the mills moved

to more accessible areas of the city,

the valley has slowly been reclaimed

by nature.

Now a quirky old chair like

something from a fairy tale has

replaced the water wheels. The

sculpture is the work of artist Jason

Thomson, whose aim was to mix up

the countryside and industrial past.

It looks like it’s made from tree roots

but is actually sculpted from steel.

The chair is situated on a small

island in the river and can only be

accessed by a short trail of stepping

stones from the river bank, but is

worth seeing the next time you take

a stroll in Rivelin Valley.

The paths along the trail mainly

pass through woodland, with trees

such as Alder, Ash, Beech, Holly

and Oak. If you look carefully, you

will find various types of plants,

trees, birds and animals, providing

endless opportunities for budding

nature photographers.

Birds such as Blackbird, Great tit,

Long-tailed tit, Robin and Wren are

regularly seen amongst the trees.

Others such as Dipper, Grey Heron,

Grey Wagtail, Kingfisher and Mallard

can be found along the river or at

the water-filled mill dams. At dusk

look out for bats patrolling the river

or flying low over the mill dams.

Plenty of picnic spots can be

found at Rivelin Valley, but there is

also a café and toilets by the play

area. From June to September, the

water splash area will be open every

weekend and also daily during the

school holidays.

Ample free parking is available

on the roadside as well as the

signposted car park. Use SAT NAV

code S6 6GF. For access via public

transport, buses and trams from

Sheffield take you to Malin Bridge

which is just a short walk away.

With Elmhirst Parker Solicitors

No-fault divorce: how have things changed?

Hailed as the biggest shake up

in divorce law in fifty years, the

new no-fault divorce system

hopes to reduce conflict and

costly acrimonious litigation

in relationship breakdowns by

taking away the blame game.

The Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act

2020 came into force on 6th April 2022, replacing

the existing Matrimonial Causes Act 1973.

Previously, divorce proceedings required one

party to prove their partner was at fault through

adultery, desertion or unreasonable behaviour.

The only alternative was a lengthy period of

separation: two years where both parties agree to

divorce, or five years if one side does not consent.

It is now possible to

file for divorce jointly,

allowing couples

to reflect a mutual

agreement to part.

The new DDS Act allows married couples

to issue divorce proceedings without assigning

blame or proving a certain behaviour; only a

statement of irretrievable breakdown will be

needed for evidence. With no facts to dispute, a

respondent cannot contest the decision other than

for reasons such as lack of jurisdiction or invalidity

of marriage.

Couples must still have been married for

at least 12 months and the sole grounds for

divorce are that the marriage has broken down

irretrievably. But it is now possible to file for

divorce jointly, allowing couples to reflect a mutual

agreement to part.

No-fault divorces are also set to speed up


the divorce process, shifting to an online service

where divorce papers are sent by email. The DDS

Act introduces a minimum period of six months

from initiating divorce proceedings to when

the final order – previously known as a decree

absolute – can be granted.

It is important to state that divorce proceedings

only legally end the marriage. Financial matters

need to be dealt with separately. A legally binding

financial settlement order is needed to agree how

joint assets or finances will be divided. But this

can be more challenging and complicated than

the divorce itself.

Speaking to a family lawyer is the best way to

protect yourself against making costly mistakes. If

couples save money on needless legal arguments

via the new no-fault divorce, this should

enable both parties to have more productive

conversations and make sensible arrangements

about finances and children.

When this involves complex financial assets,

such as pensions or investments, it is more likely

couples will call on specialist input. But for anyone

needing to reach agreement, getting guidance in

the early stages is likely to result in a faster, more

cost-effective and mutually agreeable outcome.

If children are involved, parents should talk to

them and prepare the ground for separation, while

avoiding putting children in a position where they

feel they must take sides.

Most parents will want to avoid subjecting their

children to court proceedings at all costs. They

would also prefer to see results in days rather than

months, particularly amidst lengthy delays in the

family court system. Alternative dispute resolution

often proves more cost-effective for couples

because having a fixed, shorter timeframe can

keep the lid on legal fees.

If suitable, mediation should be the first port of

call. Talking things through calmly and openly is

always best, but it may help to have someone sit

in to help focus those conversations on positive

negotiation. Expert input can also ensure that any

agreement over assets or custody arrangements

is fair for both sides.

Arbitration is another alternative to court, if

separating couples are unable to come to an

agreement through mediation. An arbitrator is a

legal professional with specialist training, who

will send their decision to the court so it can be

turned into a legally enforceable order. This would

have the same force as an order initiated by the

court but cuts out the waiting time. As a private

arrangement, once a date is fixed, it will not be

pushed aside by other cases with higher priorities.

Whatever route is taken, seeking out the right

help and support can make all the difference for

couples, so they come through the divorce with a

sense of a positive resolution, where everyone has

an outcome that works for them and feels fair.

More than just

office space

at The Business Village

Taking the plunge to start a business from scratch

can be pretty straightforward. But making it

successful and sustainable can throw up many

challenges. How do you turn ambition into profit?

Unlock your business’ true

potential with the help of The

Business Village. Along with

providing flexible, high quality office

space and business units, The

Business Village actively supports

their tenants looking to accelerate

growth through a range of tailored


ScaleUp 360 is an exciting

programme for start-ups and

SMEs delivered in partnership

with Sheffield Hallam University

and the East Midlands Chamber

of Commerce. Whether starting a

business or scaling up an existing

venture, business owners can

receive a minimum of 12 hours

of fully funded business support

plus access to modern business

development facilities.

Following a business review,

the ScaleUp 360 team look at any

specific challenges a company

is facing and how they can help

overcome them. Their one-to-one

business advice, mentoring and

workshops cover a broad range of

issues from finance and sales to HR

and legal issues.

Maybe a business would benefit

from marketing, branding and

packaging support to launch a

new product or service. Some

businesses might be looking for

ways to improve systems and

processes to become more efficient.

We spoke to one of

The Business Village

tenants about the

ScaleUp 360 project

It doesn’t take long for most

tenants to feel at home at The

Business Village. But for Alterior

and Puddles, they got more

than they bargained for when

looking for somewhere to house

their growing home fragrance

and décor business.

After merging their two

complementary businesses

together, childhood friends Laura

Bentley and Carly Asquith, both

25, quit their jobs in sales and

teaching to pursue this new joint

venture handmaking toxin-free

wax melts and bespoke jesmonite

resin products. They’d both already

outgrown their home workspaces

and were looking for premises to

complete their increasing orders.

They went to look round The

Business Village last summer and

were taken by the idea of having

no lease contracts – a big, risk-free

pull for fledgling businesses. But on

hearing of the additional benefits

being a Business Village tenant

would bring, they knew it would be

the perfect fit.

“We had no clue about any

help that was available and to us

the only way to scale up was to

create a partnership and learn how

to make each other’s products. It

was suggested we enrol on their

ScaleUp 360 project. The project

has given us a clear focus and

direction and we now have three,

five and ten-year goals. It’s been

like having a Dragon on board,”

Laura says.

Alterior and Puddles have quickly

achieved their short-term goals of

merging and rebranding into one

business, along with having their

products stocked in local outlets.

Their product range has grown

from five wax melt fragrances

to 140, and their handmade

acrylic-based resin products now

includes trinket trays, reed diffusers

and ornaments made to match

customers’ home décor.

They’ve also launched a new,

niche product unique to them

that perfectly blends both sides

of the business. Their Made

for You candles are completely

customisable; customers choose

the colour and design of the resin

pot, the colour and scent of the

candle, as well as the style of wick.

With the support of the ScaleUp

360 project, they’re now working

towards their long-term vision of

branching into international trade.

Carly tells us they’ve recently taken

on two big wholesale contracts,

one being a shipment to America.

Already on the waiting list for

a bigger workspace, Alterior and

Puddles are looking to open a retail

unit at The Business Village within

the next year.

Alterior and Puddles have

enthusiastically jumped at every

opportunity the ScaleUp 360

has provided, such as attending

invaluable seminars and

workshops, having marketing

advice, support with developing a

financial model, and meeting multimillion-pound

business owners

who started off in similar humble


“The support we’ve had is unreal

and we wouldn’t have had that help

had we not come to The Business

Village. The mentors are on-site,

so we know that if we need advice

about anything they’re always

there. There’s not a question they

aren’t happy to answer,” Carly says.



Our tenants benefit from a range of support to accelerate their business growth

Including: • ScaleUp 360 • Start-up Services • Business Coaching • Net Zero Accelerator

We manage inspiring, flexible workspaces that help businesses collaborate, grow and achieve their dreams!

Make your money

go further

with RotherFed

We’re facing the biggest

income squeeze in a

generation as the rising

cost of living becomes a

heavy burden to carry. Many

families will begin to see a

decline in living standards

as their budgets erode,

leaving them teetering

on the edge of a poverty


A Rotherham-based charity is helping to

stabilise residents at risk of spiralling into

financial hardship by offering free services,

advice and guidance to tackle the cost of living


Rotherham Federation, aka RotherFed, has

been harnessing the power of communities

for 15 years, giving the people of Rotherham a

voice to grow and develop the area they live in.

Last year, they launched two new projects to

support people feeling the squeeze from rising

bills – and that was before the likes of the energy

cap, fuel costs, inflation, water rates, national

insurance contributions, and council tax bills had

risen dramatically.

Whether you’re in paid employment, are

retired, are a student, or in receipt of benefits, no

matter our income everyone is having to tighten

the purse strings. RotherFed is there to listen

and help you access the free support you need

to make ends meet.

Around £16 billion in

benefits goes unclaimed

each year, so you could

be missing out on money

you’re entitled to


Making Our Money

Go Further

This is a three-year project aimed at

changing the way communities think

and talk about managing money.

Working in partnership with Rotherham

Citizens Advice, the free service is lottery funded

and advises people in Rotherham how to cut

their bills without cutting back.

We’re all paying considerably more for

necessities. But in Yorkshire, over 40 percent of

families are living below the minimum income

standard. If you’re worried about affording the

basics, are struggling to pay all your bills, or

would like to know how to budget, the Making

Our Money Go Further project is there to help.

The project is multi-faceted, providing

practical tools needed to deal with money

worries. RotherFed staff together with staff

and volunteers at Rotherham Citizens advice

are on-hand to help you reduce expenditure,

increase income and renegotiate outgoings.

This might be speaking to a Citizens Advice

advisor about any government benefits you’re

eligible for or if claiming benefits means you

qualify for discounts on your council tax, water

rates or broadband contracts. Around £16

billion in benefits goes unclaimed each year,

so you could be missing out on money you’re

entitled to.

Have you ever looked at your outgoings

to see if you could pay less for the same

things? The RotherFed team can empower

you to save money on childcare bills through

government initiatives like tax-free childcare,

recycle children’s school uniforms at a uniform

drive, cancel unused subscriptions, or haggle

with your broadband and TV provider to get a

better deal.

Maybe you’d benefit from some budgeting

advice. There are now many apps available that

can be linked to your bank account so you can

The RotherFed team are

big advocates for saving

on your shopping and

regularly offer taste tests

see exactly which bills are rising and where you

might be able to cut back.

With rising food prices, the total at the till

seems to be more each week - even after

resisting the luxury items. Most supermarkets

have their own budget or saver ranges, as well


as wonky fruit and veg. The packaging might

be plain and simple, but the quality and taste

is not much different to premium ranges. The

RotherFed team are big advocates for saving

on your shopping and regularly offer taste tests

to see if you can taste the difference with your

mouth and not your eyes when products are out

of the packaging.

Simple things like checking the cupboards for

what you don’t need, making list of meal ideas

before you go, or doing your food shopping

online to reduce impulse buys can help save

money each week. As too can growing your own

fresh produce at your local allotment.

The RotherFed team also have access to a

cookbook compiled by Thurcroft woman Kathryn

Bliss on how to feed a family of four for less

than £2. The cheap and nutritious meals have

been costed per specific ingredient, such as

how much one onion or a tablespoon of tomato

puree costs. Recipes include bangers at mash

for 72p, mushroom risotto for £1.28, or peach

crumble for 47p.

The project is also working with services

such as Rotherham Foodbank and the social

supermarket initiative. Service users can tap

into expert advice from RotherFed and Citizens

Advice for help with debt and budgeting to help

get them back on track.

And finally, an important part of the project is

raising awareness about fast-fix finances, such

as loan sharks, investments scams, and buy

now pay later agreements.

The Making Our Money Go Further team

works with individuals across Rotherham but

is also able to deliver sessions at grassroots

community groups.

Energy Know How

With the energy market in crisis, there

are no cheap deals and the only way to

save money is to use less.

This two-year project supports Rotherham

residents to reduce their energy use and costs

while improving knowledge and awareness

about energy efficiency.

It is funded by the Energy Redress Scheme,

where money taken from energy firms who

breach Ofgem’s rules is redistributed to help

people who are most at risk from cold homes

and high energy bills.

Of all the recent price rises, the energy bill

increase is by far the largest. The energy price

cap rose by more than 50 percent on April 1st,

There is also free help

available to assess your

home for energy saving


with many residents seeing an average increase

of £700 on their annual bill. As oil and gas prices

continue to surge, there are fears the energy

price cap could rise even further in October.

But what does this all mean to consumers?

The Energy Know How team can help you

understand your energy bills and price caps

if you bring a copy along to one of their

drop-in sessions.

If you are unable to pay the increased energy

bill, your provider has a duty of care and

should have hardship funds or signpost you to

government support, such as the Warm Home

Discount for low income households, or annual

winter fuel payments for those born before 26th

September 1955.

There is also free help available to assess

your home for energy saving measures.

The Energy Know How team is working with

Groundwork’s Green Doctors to look at how

you can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

This might be simple solutions to tackle issues

like heat loss by using reflector sheets behind

radiators on external walls, installing draft

excluders to doors, switching to energy efficient

light bulbs, or looking at how to prevent damp

and mould.

The team can also give you tips on how to

save money by being consciously aware of your

energy usage. For example, you could save

around £55 a year by remembering to turn your

appliances off standby mode, or £65 a year by

turning the thermostat down one degree.

As well as remote support over the phone or

email, the Energy Know How team run regular

drop-in sessions. Contact the Energy Know How

team or visit their Facebook page for up-to-date

details of when and where their face-to-face

sessions will be.

Cottagecore is the epitome of The Good Life

in the 21st century, disconnecting from the digital

Throw your imagination to your dream English

country kitchen. Whether you live in such an

idyllic home or not, there are ways to create that

wholesome, nostalgic and mindful rural vibe.

Cottagecore décor is saturated with bountiful

dried flower bouquets to a ceramic vase,

collecting mismatched vintage crockery, and

showcasing them in an organised chaos fashion

on open shelving is an easy place to start.

leading glazier

With a proven track record for delivering high

quality products and excellent standards of

service, Rotherham Glass has been the town’s

leading glazier for 35 years.

Whether you’re looking to replace

a single pane of broken glass or for

all-new windows and doors for your

home, Rotherham Glass has built

a solid reputation of offering a nononsense,

no hard sales approach

with products at affordable prices.

All products are made at their

on-site factory at Parkgate by

experienced and skilled technicians,

so you know you’ll always be in safe

hands. Rotherham Glass take great

pride in their standard of work and

each valued customer is offered the

same high level of service.

Unlike other large window and

door firms, Rotherham Glass don’t

employ salespeople and the price

you’re quoted is the best and final

price. If you’re looking for a quote to

replace existing windows and doors,

one of their fitters will come to your

home to carry out a site survey and

discuss your needs.

You can also visit their window and

door showroom to view the product

range first-hand, including the vast

range of colour finishes available

for window units, uPVC doors and

composite doors. The friendly and

helpful team are always on-hand to

offer advice and answer any queries

you may have.

If your current windows are

draughty or misted up, it’s a sign

that your double glazing has been

compromised. This reduces the

energy efficiency of the glass,

which is the last thing you need

when energy prices are already

rising. But it can also impact the

safety, so it’s important you have

your double glazing inspected

and repaired as soon as you

notice a problem to save you time

and money.

As well as windows and doors,

Rotherham Glass are well-known for

supplying glass and mirrors cut to

the size you need, usually while you

wait. So whether your greenhouse

needs some TLC, you’ve given

yourself seven years bad luck from

smashing a mirror, or you need a

glass splashback for your kitchen,

no job is too big or small. They even

offer decorative stained-glass panels

created from your design ideas for

doors and cabinets.

in Rotherham and beyond, including

football stadiums, hotels and even

Dementia Carer


Rotherham Dementia Carer

Support is set to blossom this

summer thanks to over £12,000

in grants towards a new garden

project at Rotherham College.

The team at Rotherham Dementia

Carer Support, which is operated

by national adult health and social

care charity Making Space, had

been keen to start an outdoor

venture for some time. But due to

the long waiting list for an allotment,

Rotherham College volunteered one

of theirs which had been neglected

during the pandemic.

Voluntary Action Rotherham’s

Mental Health Small Grant Scheme

awarded the service almost £9,000

over the next three years while a

further £3,230 came from VAR’s

Supporting Our Communities grant.

The grants will be used to buy

tools, plants, seeds, compost and

seating for carers with restricted

mobility, as well as to pay for a

gardener to help get the project

started. The grant will also go

towards helping to bring back the

existing monthly dementia cafes

in Thurcroft, Wath-Upon-Dearne,

Dalton and Maltby.

You can find out more about

getting involved with the garden

project by calling 01709 910889

Penistone WI joins

the Royal Canopy


It was double celebrations for

members of the Penistone Women’s

Institute as they celebrated their

21st anniversary along with the

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by taking

part in the Royal Canopy project.

As part of the tree planting

scheme, Penistone WI donated

and planted three fruit trees

in Penistone’s beautiful

Watermeadows Park. Known locally

as the ‘windy city’ due to its location

in the foothills of the Pennines,

the wind was in full force as the

day of planting arrived in April. But

the ladies were ably supported by

Twiggs Landscaping, the Mayor of

Penistone and town councillors to

get the job done.

provide plums and pears for the

community for many years to come

Rosa “Lady Emma Hamilton”

“A rose by any other

name would smell as


As roses are not only at their

peak of perfection in June, but are

also our national flower and are

steeped in symbolism, they seem

the perfect flower with which to

celebrate the Queen’s Platinum

Jubilee this summer.

The Tudor rose, a combination of

the white rose of the House of York

and the red rose of the House of

Lancaster, was adopted by Henry Vll

as a sign of peace to mark the end

of the Wars of the Roses. Together

with the thistle and the shamrock, it

still forms part of the Royal Coat of

Arms and is worn by the guards at

the Tower of London.

Roses are the essence of the

traditional English garden in midsummer,

evocative of times past,

of idyllic childhoods concocting

‘perfume’ from velvety petals, of

heady scents as evening falls and of

exquisite patterns on dainty China

and old chintz fabric. The rose, a

Rosa “Gertrude Jekyll”

Rosa “The Generous Gardener”

symbol of love, is strewn in all its

romantic forms throughout music,

art and literature, most famously in

the plays of Shakespeare.

Rose petals are dried to make

confetti, pot-pourri, used in cooking,

for decoration and in medicine

around the world. Rose oil,

perfume, soap and rose water are

all popular products made from the

distillation of fresh roses. The rose

is millions of years old, native of the

temperate regions of the Northern

Hemisphere and, it is believed, was

first cultivated about 5,000 years

ago in China.

I love roses, for their versatility,

scent, large variety of colour, long

flowering period, ease of growing

and hardiness. Even their stems,

arching branches, thorns, hips or

heps can be dramatic. There is

a rose for almost every situation

whatever the size of plot that you


In the past, roses were grown

formally in traditional rose gardens

perhaps in a parterre or geometric

layout edged with low box hedging

separated by paths. They would

Rosa “ Veilchenblau”


Sedum and hardy geraniums

be delightful for a short period of

time, dull for the rest of the year. As

tastes change, rose breeders have

developed roses suited to more

informal layouts, less prone to black

spot producing plants which repeat

flower, are perhaps thornless but

still retain their heavenly scent and

exquisite form.

Whenever I have been asked to

incorporate roses into a design,

or indeed added roses to my own

garden, I interplant the roses with

a wide range of complementary

plants including spring bulbs to

produce a mixed border ensuring

a continuity of interest throughout

the year.

For example, rose beds can be

edged with generous clumps of

dianthus, Heuchara “Palace purple”,

Stachys lanata and saxifrage; then

interweave beds with ribbons of

foxgloves, Verbena bonariensis,

fennel, Tellima, Alliums, lavender

and purple sage punctuated by

obelisks supporting roses and

clematis to give height and variety.

If space is limited, choose from a

range of patio roses or grow roses

vertically up and over an arch or

a wall such as Rosa “Gertrude

Jekyll” and Rosa “The Generous


The English Shrub Roses

are excellent for cutting, highly

perfumed, fabulous in form and

range of colour. My favourites,

which I grow against an old stone

wall with the climbing purple Rosa

“Veilchenblau”, sage, lavender,

Stachys and passionflower, are

Mossy Saxifrage

Mixed border of roses,

sage and Heuchara

Rosa “Lady Emma Hamilton” and

Rosa “Lady of Shalott” in shades of

orange and copper.

If you want to plant a rose this

summer, a beautiful new English

Shrub Rose called Rosa “Elizabeth”

has been bred to mark the Queen’s

Platinum Jubilee.

Whilst container grown roses

can be planted throughout the

year, bare-root stock is available

in late autumn and should be

planted on arrival. Roses prefer a

sunny position with well-drained

soil although there are roses which

will tolerate some shade. They like

clay soil, improved with well rotted

manure. Prepare the ground in

advance of planting, digging a hole

big enough to spread out the roots,

fork over the base with a mix of well

rotted manure and bonemeal; after

planting, backfill with the same mix

with some soil added. Do not bury

the graft or union. Protect the rose

with a thick mulch over winter.

Enjoy the roses and the

celebrations in June.

His brother’s keeper:

remembering George and Ted Robledo

The football league’s history is littered with

siblings, from the Charltons to the Nevilles

and the Toures. But a footballing family whose

careers constantly mirrored each other’s is

the Robledos.

The Robledo story is that of

unity. While not always both in the

starting XI, brothers George and

Ted played together simultaneously

at four different clubs in England

and their native Chile: Barnsley FC,

Newcastle United, Colo-Colo, and

the Chilean national team.

South America has a reputation

for producing some of the world’s

greatest footballers and George

Robledo is arguably one of the first

foreign-born players to have an

impact on English football.

But while the Robledos were

born in Chile, their sporting

prowess was nurtured in South

Yorkshire and polished on

Tyneside – bagging a whole host of

silverware along the way.

Legends in the Toon and Tarn,

the Robledos owe their success to

the village of West Melton.

As with many sporting siblings,

one Robledo brother went on

to shine brighter than the other.

George, the eldest, set many

footballing records including

the first foreign player to win the

Golden Boot for being the First

Division’s top goal scorer.

From grassroots games in the

Dearne to claiming back-to-back

victories at Wembley, George

played and scored in the 1939 Totty

Cup, 1944 Montagu Cup, 1950

World Cup in Brazil, and 1952 FA

Cup – of which his winning goal

was immortalised in crayon by

a young John Lennon and later

used on the cover of his Walls and

Bridges album.

The brothers both died decades

ago, remembered in South

Yorkshire by Reds fans over a

certain age who were fortunate

enough to see them play at Oakwell

or hear stories from family who did.

But now, two new blue plaques

have been unveiled to preserve the

Robledos’ legacy on the footballing

world: one on the wall of their family

home in the Dearne Valley on what

would have been George’s 96th

birthday, and another at their later

home in Newcastle seventy years

to the day of George’s FA Cup

winning goal.

Due to economic and political

instability in Chile during the 1930s,

George and Ted moved from one

mining community to the other,

emigrating with their mother from

Iquique to West Melton when they

were five and two.

Their mother Elsie hailed from

Rotherham and moved to Argentina

aged 18 to look after the children of

a mine manager. When that family

were transferred to Chile she joined

Ted and George

George and Ted

them, where she met the mine

company’s accountant, Aristides


The couple married and had

three boys: George born 1926,

Edward born 1928, and Walter

born 1932. When Walter was just

six weeks old, Elsie and the boys

travelled by ship back to the UK.

Their father stayed in Chile, never

to see his children again until a

brief meeting with George some

decades later.

Elsie took over her family’s

general store on Barnsley Road

following the death of her parents.

The boys went to nearby Brampton

Ellis School which is where the

oldest Robledo lad first showed an

interest in football.

Aged 13, George played in

the Totty Cup, a competition for

Don and Dearne schools, scoring

four goals of the 9-0 triumph over

Thurnscoe Hill in the 1939 final.

At the following year’s final, he

scored five of the six Brampton Ellis

goals in a 2-2 draw and 4-0 replay

against Bolton Modern to retain

the cup.

Robledo scored over 50 goals in

the 1938/9 season, with the South

Yorkshire Times reporting that, had

it been normal times (the country

was in the throes of World War II),

he’d have certainly received his



Elsie, Ted, George and Walter

county cap. As a school player,

he would score 139 goals in four


As the war raged on, a

teenage George continued to play

football, picking up a few amateur

appearances with Huddersfield

Town and Barnsley while working

down the pits on leaving school.

In 1944, he ‘guested’ for Wath

Wanderers in the Montagu Cup

final replay, opening the scoring

in a game that lasted almost two

hours forty minutes.

After the end of the war, George

signed a professional contract with

second division team Barnsley

FC. In his debut with the Reds,

he scored a hat-trick in a 3-0

victory over Nottingham Forest.

The following season, brother Ted

joined the Reds which would begin

a brotherly bond like no other for

the Chilean siblings with Yorkshire


Having scored 45 goals in

105 appearances with Barnsley

over two and a half seasons,

George was approached by top

flight Newcastle United in 1949.

But while moving up a division

appealed to him, he had one strict

condition that would be make or

break: the Magpies had to sign his

brother, too.

Ted had only made five

appearances at Barnsley, but they

agreed without hesitation, making a

record transfer deal of £26,500 for

the pair. Tyneside would become

the new home for all the Robledos,

with Elsie and youngest brother

Walter moving into a house rented

by the club.

George went straight into the

first team, making his debut goal

a month later to score the winner

in a derby against Sunderland on

home turf at St James’ Park. The

Newcastle crowd soon claimed him

as their own, aided by a winning

partnership he struck up with the

club’s golden boy, Jackie Milburn.

A hard-working and robust

playing style cemented his place

in the high-flying Newcastle side.

Although primarily an insideforward

with a fierce shot and

strong heading ability that netted

him endless goals, George played

in every position except centreback.

He was even once the

goalkeeper replacement while

facing Manchester United at Old

Trafford – but not before scoring a

goal against the opposition first.

During his overall time for Newcastle,

he scored a total of 82 league goals in 146

appearances, a record for an overseas

player that was held almost fifty years

until it was broken by Dwight Yorke

His remarkable performances

for the North East club caught

the eye of his home nation, with

George called up to represent

Chile at the 1950 World Cup in

Brazil. Drawn in the same group

as England, it was like a busman’s

holiday for George, facing up

against First Division mainstays

that formed the England squad.

But while Chile didn’t get past the

group stages, George became a

national hero for his contribution to

the team in all of the club’s games

at the competition.

Despite being nicknamed

Pancho by his Newcastle

teammates, George couldn’t speak

a word of Spanish – he’d left Chile

while still in short trousers and they

didn’t speak much Spanish in West

Melton! He was also the only player

out of 286 from 13 nations who was

playing for a professional league

club outside his own country.

The Robledos never gained

citizenship so couldn’t play for

England, but George earned 31

caps for Chile. He and Ted would

also go on to play for their birth

country together when Chile

hosted the 1955 South American

Championship, aka Copa America.

Back on British soil, George

continued to make waves in

Reunited with Jackie Milburn

the Magpies’ black and white

stripes, with a run of firsts and

record-breaking triumphs for the

club. During his overall time for

Newcastle, he scored a total of 82

league goals in 146 appearances,

a record for an overseas player

that was held almost fifty years until

it was broken by Dwight Yorke in

1998. He had a better goal ratio

than Newcastle’s Shearer, Milburn,

and MacDonald.

The 1951/52 season was

George’s most prolific. He became

the first non-British top goal scorer

in the First Division with a tally of 33 71


A display in the Colo-colo museum

Gladys and Elizabeth

league goals, with the FA verifying

this has never been beaten by a

non-British player. For context,

contemporary overseas Golden

Boot winners in the Premier League

are Salah with 32 goals, Ronaldo

and Suarez with 31, and Henry and

Van Persie with 30.

The previous season, George

had become the first South

American to play in an FA Cup final

as Newcastle beat Blackpool to

bring home the trophy. He returned

to Wembley with Newcastle the

following year as defending

champions; this time he was

joined in the squad by his brother

Ted. Again, another first was set

as the brothers became the first

two foreign players in the same

team at an FA Cup final. It would

be almost thirty years before two

South Americans played together

again in an FA Cup final, in the form

of Argentinians Ossie Ardiles and

Ricky Villa for Spurs in 1981.

George went on to score

the only goal of the final against

Arsenal to retain the trophy for a

second year. More than 60 years

later in 2015, Alexis Sanchez

became the next Chilean player

to score in an FA Cup final. A

photograph of Robledo’s header

which clinched The Magpies’ win

was drawn by an 11-year-old John

Lennon and later used on his

fifth solo album cover, Walls and

Bridges, released in 1974.

Still in his mid-20s, George

remained at the summit of the

English football league pyramid

with Newcastle. But his English

career would soon come to an end,

fuelled this time by his younger

brother and a run of bad play by

the Magpies.

Having lived in his brother’s

shadow at Newcastle, in 1953 Ted

was sold to Chile’s premier team,

Colo-Colo, after 37 appearances

with Newcastle. Changing

formation, George decided to

follow his brother back to Chile to

play for the Santiago team. A cap

on wages in the UK was reportedly

what swayed his decision, with

Colo-Colo doubling his wages to

£14 a week as well as giving him a

£4,000 signing bonus.

Again, their doting mother

Elsie moved her life to stay with

The Robledos played together at

Colo-Colo until 1957, during which time

they won two league titles and George

was the top goal scorer in two

back-to-back seasons

her boys, relocating back to Chile

to where their journey first began.

Younger brother Walter went too,

with the travel fares and house paid

for by the club.

The Robledos played together

at Colo-Colo until 1957, during

which time they won two league

titles and George was top goal

scorer in two back-to-back

seasons. Ted phased out his career

there, and many presumed his

older brother would also announce

his retirement, having reached

the age of 31. However, George

went on to play for O’Higgins de

Rancagua for a couple of seasons

before moving into coaching in

1960 aged 34.

By then, he had a wife Gladys

and daughter Elizabeth. The family

moved north-west to the coastal

city of Vina del Mar where George

took a job as sports master of an

English school. He also played a

role in organising the 1962 World

Cup held in Chile.

Ted, meanwhile, was working

on oil rings in the Persian Gulf

when tragedy struck. He went

overboard, presumed missing, in

1970 aged 42 while sailing out of

Dubai. Mysterious circumstances

surrounded his disappearance;

the ship’s captain was tried and

acquitted of murder. Ted’s body

was never found and his death

remains unresolved.

Their mother Elsie died a

few years later, having moved

back to the UK. Walter had

remained in education and, on

completion, moved to the US to

work for a mining company, which

subsequently led to him being

transferred back to Chile and then


George died of a heart attack in

1989 aged 62, leaving behind his

wife and daughter and a legacy in

both England and Chile.

All these years later, Elizabeth

returned to her father’s childhood

home in West Melton in April for the

unveiling of the new blue plaque.

The event had been postponed for

two years owing to the pandemic,

with Elizabeth finally able to

travel over from Chile to mark the


Installing a blue plaque was

the original idea of Chris Brook, a

former teacher who has a hand in

running the Totty Cup and Montagu

Cup competitions that George

played in and won as a youth.

When researching the history of the

Totty Cup, a name on the 1939 goal

sheet intrigued him – Robledo.

After hearing that the same

Robledo had gone on to play in FA

Cup and World Cup finals, Chris’

fascination into the family piqued.

Coming to realise little was known

of him in his childhood home,

Chris put the wheels in motion to

organise the plaque in 2019.

But he needed proof that the

family had indeed lived at 97

Barnsley Road, West Melton.

A fire had destroyed the 1931

census and the following census

didn’t happen because of the war.

However, Chris managed to track

down a Robledo distant relative,

Lucy Thorpe, whose father had the

original contracts from when the

brothers signed for Barnsley FC,

complete with their address.

He then needed permission

from the building’s owner. It was no

longer a shop, having been turned

into flats, but Chris found the owner

via a Land Registry search who

readily supported the plans.

Another hurdle was the cost,

with crowd funding helping raise

half the £350 needed and Barnsley

FC offering to pay the rest.

And there was to be no plaque

without family present. Through

the power of social media, Chris

was put in touch with Elizabeth

who lived over 7,000 miles away in


At the unveiling, Elizabeth

was joined by Chilean diplomat

Francisco Tello, and former

Barnsley player, Barry Murphy.

Elizabeth was then invited as a

guest at Oakwell to watch the Reds

play Peterborough on April 18th.

Following her time in South

Yorkshire, she then travelled up

north to the Tyne to be a guest

at St James’ Park for Newcastle

United’s game against Liverpool

at the end of April, shortly followed

by a second blue plaque unveiling

on her family’s Newcastle home in

myth busting

With James Ward at the Grape Kitchen

Following the start of our wine myth busting series

in the last edition, which dispelled the myth that all

wines get better with age, this time we’re addressing

another myth we hear regularly…

“Wines with a screw

cap are lower quality”

I personally prefer a cork in my

wine bottle, but that’s because I’m

a sucker for the whole ceremony of

opening up the bottle and hearing

a pop of the cork. However, that

doesn’t mean I discriminate against

screwcap wine. In fact, screwcaps

sometimes have benefits over corks.

People say that

you shouldn’t age a

screwcap wine, but

it shouldn’t be an

issue so long as the

screwcap is secure -

I’ve got a few in my

collection that are

at least five years


A screwcap wine

can’t be corked

Cork comes from a cork tree which

produce a natural compound called

trichloroanisole (TCA). If too much

TCA is present in the cork, then it

emits odours reminiscent of damp

cardboard into the wine, aka ‘corking’

it. Cork producers have been working

to reduce amounts of TCA but cork

taint is still possible.

Screwcaps are made of plastic,

so no TCA compound, meaning a

screwcap wine will never be corked.

However, if a screwcap hasn’t been

fitted properly it will run the risk of

oxidising the wine. This is uncommon

as most screwcaps are mechanically

fitted, but if you can smell vinegar

then your wine may have been


Screwcap wines can be

opened by hand

How many times have you been

with friends, gone to open a bottle

and found that the pesky cork won’t

come out?! How many times have

you broke a cork because it’s either

crumbled or you’ve not put the

corkscrew in enough? A screwcap

will alleviate any of these frustrations.

Screwcaps can be

recycled easier

A cork may be natural but the

plastic from a screwcap is easier to


Can a screwcap wine

be aged?

People say that you shouldn’t age

a screwcap wine, but it shouldn’t be

an issue so long as the screwcap

is secure - I’ve got a few in my

collection that are at least five years

old. The reason why cork is preferred

and why they say you should lay the

bottle down is so the wine can come

into contact with the cork and stop

it from drying out, which would let

oxygen in.

Aside from its red-meat core, The Barley grill

menu is also bursting with tasty alternatives, such

as gammon steaks, ribs, and spatchcock chicken.

Get your burger fix with patties that are made from

a blend of high-quality beef and bone marrow,

or go traditional with steak and ale pie, bangers

and mash, or hand battered fish and chips. The

children’s menu also features freshly prepared

options such as fish or chicken goujons, a mini

burger, or mac and cheese.

Their meat-free and plant-based menu is every

bit as flavoursome, with options such as a spicy

vegan pie, or colourful veggie grill with grilled

vegetables, mac and cheese, coleslaw and a

choice of homemade chip or sweet potato fries.

And make sure you leave room for dessert.

Head chef and manager Vanessa is the queen

of puds, whipping up a range of tempting cakes,

cream buns, and self-saucing puddings served in

a cup and saucer.

While The Barley Bar and Restaurant only

opened at the end of April, there are already more

plans in the pipeline to expand their outdoor offer

with a bar, BBQ, children’s play area, beer festivals,

and a log cabin for private events.

The perfect pear



Top off your trip to

Cannon Hall with a visit

to The Pear Tree Pantry

where you can have your

cake and eat it.

wentworth’s traditional family pub

The Pear Tree Pantry,

named after Cannon Hall’s

famous pear collection, is

run by Terri and Clive from

the popular Glo Coffee

van which has been on-site each

weekend for almost three years. But

following the success of their graband-go

food offer, they have since

left their jobs to focus solely on their

thriving venture.

The new coffee bar with outdoor

seating overlooks the historic walled

gardens. Before marvelling inside

the museum or after a walk around

the stunning parklands, relax in the

cobbled courtyard with a freshly

brewed coffee and a homemade


The Pear Tree Pantry caters for all

dietary requirements and is the only

food offer on site that offers dairy-free

milks such as coconut, almond, oat

and soya in their drinks for the same

price as regular milk.

Many of their cakes and bakes

are gluten-free, with people travelling

from all over specifically to try that

week’s offer. Terri has also developed

a vegan range of cakes and pastries,

including a Bakewell tart, jaffa orange

sponge, and barbecue jackfruit


As well as ensuring their

customers are looked after, The Pear

Tree Pantry is also helping care for

the environment. Their repurposed,

battery powered transit van is selfsustainable,

their coffee is roasted

in Sheffield, and all cups used are

compostable and biodegradable.

A warm welcome awaits

village of

Scholes, The Bay

Horse is everything

a traditional inn

should be with

hand-pulled ales,

hearty homemade

food, and a warm


The décor is

a mix of old and

new, entwining the

building’s vast history

with utmost comfort. In the dogfriendly

snug there’s a cosy log fire,

while the dining area with glazed

gable roof leads out onto the large

beer garden with open views of the

rural village.

Run by Jean Lawrence and her

husband Andy, all food at The Bay

Horse is homemade, from soups to

sauces to sweets. The menu boasts

classics such as 100% beef burgers

or hand-battered fish and proper

homemade chunky chips, as well as

dishes such as chicken smothered

in peppercorn sauce or a tandoori

chicken naan sandwich.

Jean has been dubbed the Queen

of Pies for her speciality pies filled

to the brim and covered in melt-inthe-mouth

shortcrust pastry like your

nanna used to make. Popular pies

include Jean’s steak and stilton or

roasted veg and sweet potato, and

there’s always a weekly pie which

could be anything from minted lamb

and potato to hunter’s chicken.

And situated on the edge of

Wentworth, why not quench your

thirst after a summer walk from the

well-stocked bar with cask ales,

refreshing lagers, and fine wines.

visit to Noshy’s

Coffee Lounge in

Rotherham Town


Noshy’s brings

the continental café

culture to Rotherham,

with owners Noura and Allan

creating a sense of community with a

calming atmosphere and exceptional

customer service.

Sit and relax overlooking the

Minster Gardens while enjoying a

barista-style coffee, herbal tea, or

fresh fruit smoothie. One of their

specialities is Turkish coffee, brewed

in a traditional cezve brass pot and

served unfiltered to create a thicker,

denser and stronger espresso-style

coffee – try it alongside a piece of

knafeh, a sweet honey and cheese


Their hearty and healthy food

menu blends the hospitality and

culture of the Middle East with

flavours and spices of Mediterranean

food. Their signature dishes give a

nod to Noura’s Egyptian heritage,

such as a fillet of white fish served

in an Arabic sauce with tomatoes,

peppers and subtle spices with

perfectly fluffy rice and fresh salad.

Noshy’s also has a selection of

sandwiches and salads made fresh

daily, as well as full English breakfast,

jam scones, and pastries, so

something to suit all tastes.
