One of the most hectic campaigns in which our Society has been involved was the one in which we worked with the Hospice Trust against a Council proposal to build a huge commercial leisure complex on Herringthorpe Playing Fields adjacent to the Hospice.
Nearly eight years ago, our Society started campaigning for the restoration of Boston Castle, one of the town's most important historic buildings. We found strong public support for the idea and we called a meeting to launch a "friends" group to carry on the fight.
Blenheim House, on Doncaster Road, has a special place in Rotherham's history but, only a couple of years ago, it was vacant, derelict and threatened with demolition. Now, following intervention by our Society, it will be repaired, improved and brought back into use.
