Clive Betts, MP, is correct when he points to the crisis in the city's public transport (Real problem of city public transport, 10/1/19).
Your Say

It is so positive to read about the visitor numbers soaring at locations up and down The Moor (The Star, 11 January). Anyone who has visited the new shops, The Light cinema and the Moor Market cannot fail to be impressed by what has been achieved. The whole team at The Moor deserve the city’s thanks.

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?

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’.

Letters: “I am always happy to take up any issues”

Your correspondent Justin Smith recently wrote to you saying that I had not helped him. I had not answered an email he sent me personally, but through a member of my staff, and in the reply my case worker said that what he complained about – noisy car exhausts - was not a matter for me but for the police. What Mr Smith did not say was that in the reply (this goes back to 2015) my case worker had set out what the police can do – issue defect rectification notices – and urged him to report directly to them the specific circumstances so they could look into it. I would like your readers to know that I am always happy to take up any issues involving South Yorkshire police even if I am not able to effect operational decisions directly – which is what happened here.    Yours sincerely   Dr Alan Billings Polioce and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire

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.
