Tips and preview for Doncaster’s Thursday, July 14 evening race meeting

Doncaster
"A historic but neglected industrial area on the banks of the River Don is being tipped as the next renaissance hotspot for Sheffield. The Neepsend Forum, recently set up by local business people, is confident the riverside and surrounding areas from Waingate to Parkwood Springs are ripe for  development but says the "renaissance" of Neepsend must be sustainable and sensitive - and benefit local residents in Upperthorpe, Netherthorpe, Southey, Owlerton and Burngreave. A view of Neepsend as it could be - with some extra public transport!" -- That is what The Star reported on this at the time
