Snapper Needed for Sunday

Calling you photographers out there! We some decent photo’s of the Dash on Sunday – our group snapper can’t make it. We are normally too busy on the day to take decent pics ourselves. Many will be used by the media and will be credited (and certainly used by us).

All help would be appreciated. Great opportunity to show your skills and our park off.

Paths Get TLC

Many of the paths in the park have had a makeover prior to this Sundays Santa Dash.

This has included not just the paths on the Dash route but other dodgy areas as well.

Our thanks to the DMBC guys for sorting everything out. The main feeding area next to the lake is now a lot safer. Thankyou.

We are delighted to be able to announce BIG developments in the park.

The future developments will include a new cafe/restaurant, new public toilets and new car park.

The Friends of Sandall Park have been working with the council and a property developer for months to arrive at the stage where the proposals will become a reality.
