Mexborough burglars left facing jail

A ROADSHOW to keep people informed about the impending digital TV switchover will be calling in the Dearne this month.

The switchover will see analogue TV channels turned off and Freeview services boosted to reach virtually every home in the UK. Most residents in Rotherham and Barnsley will switch to digital television in two stages on September 7 and 21. The next information roadshow will call at the Bellows Road Car Park in Rawmarsh on Monday, July 25, from 9am-5pm.

MEXBOROUGH-based tourism group Heritage Inspired has been nominated in the Best Tourism category at the White Rose Awards. The winners will be revealed at Doncaster Racecourse on October 10.

PLANS for a Parkgate restaurant that promised up to 50 jobs, have been thrown out. Frankie and Benny’s applied for planning permission to build a restaurant at Parkgate Shopping, but their application was vetoed before it reached committee, because it was not in Rotherham town centre.
