LET there be light!

Youngsters in Balby are able to play sports during dark winter nights thanks to some new lighting being put up at the suburb’s multi-use games area.

Six battery powered lights have been installed at the Oswin Avenue site by Doncaster Council, after Doncaster Youth Council representatives asked for them to be added.

Coun Nuala Fennelly said the youth centre would now be able to offer more activities. “It was great meeting young people at the youth centre and seeing the new lights in action,” she said.
