Conisborough Parish Council and Colliery Company.

The attitude of the Denaby and Cadeby Colliery Company towards the efforts of the Conisborough Parish Council to provide a recreation ground for New Conisborough was strongly criticised at a parish meeting held at Conisborough.

The object of the meeting was to obtain the authority of the ratepayers to application being made for a loan to purchase the proposed recreation ground. The land has been offered to the Council for £2OO and the Meeting gave authority for a loan of this amount being applied for forthwith.

The Chairman of the Council, Mr. S. C. Urch, pointed out that several applications for a right-of-way to the ground had been made to the colliery company, but all had been refused.

The matter had now been taken up by the Doncaster Rural Council.
