mayor of Brierley Town council, councillor Chris Sykes handed over the
proceeds from the Harvest festival auction that was held in Brierley
Social club recently, to the staff at the Special Care baby unit at
Barnsley hospital on Tuesday night.
Planning permission refused
Planning permission for a recovery vehicle to be parked behind Brierley
General store on Church Street was refused by Barnsley Council. Road
safety was the deciding factor in the decision.
Defend Council Housing accused of giving wrong information
Objectors to the proposed handing over of council properties to Springvale
housing have been accused of giving the tenants of Hillside misleading
information. Steve Jagger housing development manager who has steered the
plans for the take-over for the last three years stated "Everything we
tell people is the truth and it is all checked by solicitors in London
before it goes out." Tenants were urged not to believe the group's
comments. It seems to be made up of unions and political groups who were
ideologically opposed to the plans. "We're putting out nothing to mislead,
upset or twist the facts," he added. If the tenants vote yes all council
property on the Hillside estate will be handed over to Springvale Housing
association. The postal ballot is expected to take place early this month.
Allotment Award Winners
Tuesday night saw the annual presentation of Brierley Town Council garden
and allotment awards presented by Brierley Town council Mayor councillor
Chris Sykes. The awards were held at Brierley Social club but it was a

certificates and awards were invited to attend the presentation, but only
a handful turned up on the night. I tried without success to obtain a list
