After many complaints about the hand driers in the ladies and gents they have been replaced today. FoSP negotiated the donation as part of the overall plan to bring the toilet facilities into the 21st century.
Our thanks to Moran Electrical Solutions of Rotherham who kindly supplied and fitted them totally free of charge. We are grateful to Brian Moran and his ultra efficient electrician Ash for a great piece of work – the facilities really are ultra modern now. For details of their company click here.
A rather nice picture of one of our group, Jean Ketley, in 1958.
It does show an interesting view of the old boat house that looks in pretty good condition – mind you it was only 19 years old then!

Yes the weather may be warm/hot but we still need to prepare for our flagship event in the park – the Santa Dash!
The Wheatley Hotel has sponsored this years event with substantial donation as well as holding the events first After Dash – Bash! Details have to be finalised but it promises to be a great way of extending this ever popular event…. A massive thankyou to the Wheatley Hotel and Paul in particular…. what a great guy to do ‘business’ with.
The numbers this year have been increased to 600 after last years event sold out. The event will be launched in the first week in September – watch this space!
