Doncaster Orthodontist to cycle 3000 Across America for Help For Heroes
 
Damian Bourke, Principal Orthodontist at The Orthodontic Centre, will be part of a team cycling across America in aid of Help for Heroes.
 
The Strategic Lions Cycling Team have set the ambitious goal of winning and setting a new record in the gruelling and prestigious 2011 Race Across America (RAAM) team event, now in its 30th year. The team has been assembled and organised by Strategic Team Group (STG), a Yorkshire company.
 
Eight riders and eleven support crew will be joining forces as The Strategic Lions Team in RAAM to raise money for Help for Heroes. The cycling team includes STG staff Andy Watson and Stuart Loben, Sportscover Strategic Pro Cycling Team riders Ash Brown, John Tanner, Kev Dawson and Chris Last and Collin Humphrey as well as Damian Bourke, Doncaster Orthodontist. The race commences on 18 June in California and finishes around 5 ½ days later in Maryland, USA. 
 
The support team will include Chris Parkinson of Parkinson’s Dental whose son, Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson was seriously injured in Afghanistan. He was serving with 7 Para RHA in September 2006 and is still the most severely injured soldier ever to survive.
 
 
Damian Bourke said “Help for Heroes is such a great cause and I am delighted to be contributing, especially in view of the fact that Ben is a local lad and the son of my friend Chris. I have been very impressed with peoples’ attitudes and enthusiasm to back our effort for Help for Heroes. Wates are an excellent example of a company with a sense of responsibility and I am very grateful for their support.”
 
Wates Construction, currently building the town’s new Civic Offices and Campsmount Technology College, has already donated £200 to the race team for the Help for Heroes charity. Wates will also be opening the doors to its Civic Office site canteen to enable Orthodontic Centre staff to sell home-made cakes and help raise more funds.
 
The Strategic Lions Cycling Team is now actively seeking sponsorship and charitable donations from individuals, businesses and organisations who wish to be associated with this exciting and prestigious international event. For further information, or to make donations, please contact Andrea Coley at The Orthodontic Centre on 01302 366466 or just call into the practice at 3 Chequer Road, Doncaster.

Waterdale’s transformation continues
 
Enabling works for Doncaster’s new performance venue and public square will start later this month as the town’s Civic and Cultural Quarter (CCQ) project continues to progress.
 
The exciting new venue and public square are key elements of this regeneration scheme which will revitalise Waterdale.
 
To make way for these two important developments - under the supervision of the council’s development partner Muse Developments - a number of changes will be made which include the gradual closure of Waterdale Central Car Park over the coming months.
 
The car park will be closed in phases, with the intention of moving users over to the newly refurbished Southern Multi-Storey Car Park – to be renamed the Civic Quarter Car Park – which remains open during the works.
 
The plan is to close the final section of Waterdale Central Car Park at the end of August, by which time the Civic Quarter Car Park should be substantially complete with all 850 spaces available for use.
 
Small sections of Waterdale Central Car Park have already been removed so work can start on building a new access road to serve the new performance venue.
 
Week commencing Monday 16 May will see about 124 of the 389 spaces removed for archaeological evaluation work to take place.
 
As the archaeological work progresses, a second section of car park will be closed week commencing Monday 13 June with the loss of a further 148 spaces. The remaining 117 spaces will go in late August when construction of the new performance venue and public square are planned to commence.
 
In July the transformation of Waterdale Surface Car Park into another high quality public space will start. During the works, 20 of the 51 short stay parking spaces will remain available. This will increase to about 30 spaces once this public realm is complete in spring 2012.
 
North Midland Construction is carrying out the public realm and infrastructure works.
 
Councillor Jonathan Wood, Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration, said: “We have every reason to be pleased with progress to date. The civic offices’ building is clearly visible and rising further every day. Regeneration of Waterdale is on track and budget and I am looking forward to the next stage of development.”
 
The much improved Civic Quarter Car Park – which for years has been operating at less than half capacity – will cater for visitors who previously used the Waterdale Central Car Park.   
 
Work on the £2.5 million transformation began in March, will be substantially complete by late August and will see an extensive range of improvements made to the existing building including complying with the Park Mark for Safer Parking Scheme. This will provide car users with a safe and secure parking experience. Morgan Sindall is undertaking the works.
 
Dan Needham regional director for Muse Developments commented: “The Civic Quarter Car Park will accommodate all users of the Waterdale Central Car Park and it remains open during these works. It will provide Doncaster with a safe and secure car park that fits into its new environment in Doncaster’s Civic and Cultural Quarter”.
 
The first phase elements of the CCQ will start opening late 2012.
 
Further information is available at: www.doncaster.gov.uk/ccq
 
The project is supported financially by the European Union, as part of the European Regional Development Fund’s support for the region’s economic development through the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme.
 
 
A temporary car park will be created behind the old girls school once the civic offices are completed in autumn 2012. A multi-storey is planned to replace this in the later phases.
