The Friends of Sandall Park are in need of some new recruits. it doesn’t have to be hours litter picking, or attending every monthly meeting – though that would be nice.
We need some younger members to join us. We are a smallish group, and our members work really hard to keep the park nice and develop it for future generations to enjoy.
But it says something when a request for volunteers goes out for painting benches and the only people to turn up are our two (very active if with restricted mobility!) eldest members who are both in their late 70’s/80’s.
Thousands of people enjoy the park each week. 25 volunteers (working with the council) are what makes it nice for those thousands. Those 25 can’t sustain the group forever.
