Hard hats on as college students go on site at health centre

DOZENS of Doncaster College students have been given a closer look at how a landmark town centre building is going up.

Builders Morgan Sindall invited 60 youngsters on to the site at St Sepulchre Gate West in Doncaster, where the company is creating a 6.5 million 'super surgery' for NHS Doncaster, to be called the Flying Scotsman centre.

They are all studying for diploma at Doncaster College.

During the series of visits, the youngsters were given a tour of the site by Morgan Sindall project manager Paul Limb and were able to take a closer look at the construction process.

Paul said: "We are always happy to do what we can to show young people that there is a vast range of opportunities out there for them if they decide to pursue a career in the industry."

Once complete, the triangular shaped building will offer a wider range of services for the local community.

NHS bosses expected the facility to be opening in November.
