After today's #Woolworths drama, we have decided to capitalise on this wave of 90's nostalgia by announcing that we are bringing back Gladiators.

Doncaster will see events such as Hang Tough, Vertigo and Powerball, culminating in a gruelling Eliminator at the Mansion House.
(The UK media picked up on the unsubstantiated @UKWoolworths announcement today, so we're hoping they'll do the same here.

That way, we can trick them in to covering the actual stuff we want them to ⬇️)
As we prepare for the glorious return of Gladiators (sorting out Saracen's contract has taken a lot longer than expected) then why don't we, ohhh, I dunno...

Think about some of the ways to spend half term around Doncaster?
#Coronavirus has put a halt to lots of people's plans - now that we're in tier 3, we can't leave the local area.

Luckily, as any follower of this twitter account will know, Doncaster is one of the BEST places on earth and there are lots of things to do right on our doorstep.
Follow the lead of the Allen family, for example.

They had a week full of plans that went out the window, but instead of letting it get them down they have rediscovered the beauty of our borough with some amazing walks!

Here are Poppy and Sophie out in our glorious countyside
If you're looking for ideas of what to do this week, then look no further.…
So go forth, and rediscover your doorstep!

If you don't mind leaving us to it, we've got to order 5,000 foam fingers and some giant cotton buds.

In 2017, a man running the London marathon showed some of the most incredible sportsmanship ever.

We think it’s a story we all need to hear, as we wait for today’s announcements about #coronavirus restrictions.
It was April 2017 when runner David Wyeth was running the London marathon.

Just 300 metres from the end, his race was run. His legs had turned to jelly, and he was at the point of collapse.
After 26 miles of gruelling effort, he had longed to see the finish line – but, having turned the final corner, the sight of the last 300m seemed too much to bear.

You think the last few months have been monotonous for YOU? Well, let us tell you a story.

It’s about a church in Germany that has been playing the same piece of music WITHOUT STOPPING for two decades.
#coronavirus #covid19
In 1987, composer John Cage wrote a piece of music –the catchingly titled ‘Organ² / ASLSP’ – and it contains an instruction that the piece should be played ‘as slowly as possible’.
Now, performances of the composition usually last around 70 minutes.

However, in the late 1990s, a mischievous group of incredibly-literal German people got together, and decided to play the piece PROPERLY.

From tomorrow, we’ll have to wear a face covering whenever we go into a shop.

Lately we’ve seen a lot of different methods for wearing a face covering.

Some great, some not so great.

So here are some notes on how NOT to wear one…

‘The Bruce Forsyth’

It’s NOT nice to see this, to see this nice.

If we’re wearing a face covering it needs to be over our mouth and nose; clearly just on the chin is too far south on the face map.
The ‘Bane’

Don’t be a ‘super-villain’ by only wearing the covering over your mouth and not including your nose.

The best available scientific evidence says face coverings may reduce the spread of droplets but this is only when used correctly and both nose AND mouth are covered.

Who fancies a night out with Doncaster Council?

Pubs, bars and restaurants are re-opening this Saturday, and things will be quite different when they do.

Luckily, your dreams have come true: the local government is here to enjoy your night out with you!

Let’s do this.
First of all, we know what you’re thinking – you never thought you’d be having a night on the town with the local council.

Listen, we know how to let our hair down too! We like a raucous quarterly team meeting as much as the next person
We all know that the best part of ANY night out is the administrative planning beforehand, particularly if you make a binder full of your plans with colour-coded tabs.

We need to talk to you about the NHS test and trace system, but in a way that's engaging and interesting to everyone (especially younger people).

It took several brainstorming sessions, but we finally nailed it.

Everyone, meet your new best friend, Justin Case.
How do we explain Justin?

He’s hip, he’s happening, he appeals to both the business community AND youth culture.

I mean, he wears his cap BACKWARDS! How whacky and cool can you get?
Justin’s ‘creps’ are always ‘on fleek’, and his tik-tok game is very 'with-it' indeed

(He is also diligently prepared in the eventuality that he’s contacted through the NHS test and trace system.)

We have a little thread for you that starts off cute, then gets VERY SERIOUS in the middle, and then ends up cute again. It's a real rollercoaster of emotions for a Wednesday lunchtime.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

We were made aware of a wonderful little guy called Grayson, who takes bin bags and a litter picker on his walks every day.
On one of these walks, Grayson came across some fly-tipping.

It's fair to say the sight of this dumped rubbish turned our 8 year-old hero in to a kind of miniature-Hulk.
