Clock corner in Doncaster town centre

What have you done to our once elegant Doncaster town?

Well we've just been into Doncaster, People walking about with a frown Where are all the smiling faces, What have you done to our town? The streets are dismal and dingy, many of the shops closing down I think it's the cost of the parking, What have you done to our town?

The Burghwallis pub

Letter: Looking for an old friend from the 60’s

F.A.O. Gillian Carr  In 1965 Gill and I met on a blind date, at that time she worked in the Co-op Emporium. The date was a foursome to the Golden Ball pub at Bramley.  At the time Gill lived with Mum, Dad and younger sister Jackie at Spring Lane Sprotbrough. I was working at ICI Fibre's on Wheatley Hall Road. Shortly after Gill left the Co-op and went to work at Owen & Owen. We went on holiday to Jersey and remained close friends until mid 1967. Eventually we broke up, mainly due to our immaturity.  I left ICI Fibre's and went to E & G Charlesworth on Bennetthorpe and by chance I met Gill who was working at the Deaf School on Leger way so we arranged to go out for a meal which was fantastic to catch up. It wasn't until 1999, I was at the Burghwallis Pub for a meal and a lady with her son attracted my attention. "Do you recognise me?" I thought it was Jackie but it turned out to be Gill. Since then I have tried numerous times to contact her, without success. I now live in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Gill you have always remained a fond memory and I would love to hear from you. Phone +64275447700 Robert Campbell Email cawdor@outlook.co.nz or crosrol@gmail.com

Lakeside development Doncaster

Letter: Time for Doncaster council to deliver

In 1993 the local papers told us we were to get a no cost massive leisure park within 10 years. It was to contain Britain’s first major indoor ski centre, an all-seater community sports stadium, a leisure lake and marina, a theatre, restaurants, a holiday village and landscaped areas for recreational activities.

Brexit

Letter: 

One recurring argument for leaving the EU at any cost (Alan Machin, letters, 13 September) is to escape from a ‘European superstate’. This is a fantasy. None of the EU member state governments want a superstate, and most even reject ‘ever closer union’.

The planned Doncaster museum, library, and archives building built around the former Doncaster Girls Grammar School

Letter: Token gesture to rail heritage is not enough

As a boy train-spotter and member of the Doncaster Grammar School's Rail Society during the later 60s and early 70s I spent many a happy lunch hour in the school clock-tower, surrounded by all the fabulous and evocative memorabilia, that still form the priceless rail collection there.
