As a newly qualified beauty therapist Lisa left for Greece with the aspiration of working on Cruise Ships however, she missed home too much and soon returned to the UK and joined the House of Lindsey team. After 7 years, and at the age of just 25 years Lisa, also affectionately known as Margaret due to another colleague with the same name, was offered the opportunity to acquire the business and has earned the reputation as one of Doncaster’s most well-respected beauty salons with
Market Hill Funding Campaign – Enhancing Bawtry’s historic town centre.
Bawtry is a small market town, the historic centre of which is dominated by a rather ‘ugly’ car parking arrangement that, necessarily, has to serve as a shared vehicular/pedestrian space. The car park is essential for the town’s viability, as no suitable alternative provision can be found, but its presence detracts from the attractiveness of the central conservation area. The town is also rich in history dating back to the Roman times and a recently formed Heritage Group aims to bring that rich history alive again. There is currently a small Heritage Centre within the Community Library and a Heritage Trail is being created, which includes the market cross on Market Hill.
The Town Council is proposing to carry out improvement works to the central Market Hill area but the lack of alternative parking, together with financial constraints, limit what is achievable at this time.
A scheme is currently being prepared to reconstruct the Market Place footpath (using conservation type materials) and, as a minimum, to resurface the general Market Hill area with suitable bituminous material. The new

On Remembrance Sunday, 2008 (Bawtry) Squadron Air Training Corps paraded to pay tribute to all those who laid down their lives in service for our country. We were humbled by the response from the local community, many of whom watched us march to St Nicholas Church, and packed the church with standing room only. The tribute, led by Rev Jonathan Strickland, remembered with sadness the fallen, but also celebrated the peace that followed, and the continued efforts over the years to maintain this around the world. The ‘There but Not There’ silhouettes, brought into the church by the Squadron, were a poignant reminder, not only of those who died, but also those who do not exist because of those deaths. Following this, we marched along Bawtry High Street to Bawtry Hall, the former home of No1 Group Bomber Command, where a Service of Commemoration and laying of wreaths was held at the RAF Bomber Command Memorial. We would like thank the people of Bawtry, Austerfield and Tickhill who turned out
