CHARITY TEE TIME: The funds of the British Heart Foundation were boosted by £5,500 raised at a golf day at Doncaster’s Wheatley Golf Club. The Texas Scramble tournament was organised by John Fairhurst in memory of his son Richard who died in 2015 aged 45. The event has become an annual fixture on the golfing calendar and will have raised over £19,500 with this year’s proceeds. Julie Calendar, secretary of the BHF’s Doncaster and Bawtry fundraising branch, received a cheque from John Fairhurst on behalf of the charity. John said: “We all know someone who has been affected by heart disease and sadly it touches us all. It is great to know that our efforts will make a difference in helping to fight for every heartbeat.”


OLD FACTORY SOLD: The empty 1960s-built former bottling plant and agricultural grain store adjacent to Tickhill Road which has been up for sale for some months has a new owner, a local businessman and entrepreneur. The local estate agent that was selling the factory that covers an area of 30,900 sq ft described it as being a one acre development site with main road frontage that included a Grade II-listed barn set within the town’s conservation area that will be suitable for a variety of uses including potentially residential, retail, leisure of a mixed use scheme subject to planning and other consents.
