Park Life

Car Park Closed for a Day

Please make a note that the main car park will be closed on Tuesday 9th May so that all the car parking lines car be renewed. There will be notices around the car park as a reminder on the lead up to this date.
We thank everyone in advance for their cooperation.

Gabions Fixed

Today saw a joint work party of FoSP and Angling Club volunteers repairing damage to the gabions caused by children breaking into them and taking the stones out.

We’re pretty please with the end product – you can hardly tell the difference…… except the repaired ones have no debris or litter in them!

Radio Sheffield – Clueless!

Today saw Sandall Park as the final destination of the Sunday morning programme ‘Clueless’ on BBC radio Sheffield.

The programme has listeners solve clues and eventually end up at a destination South Yorkshire – and for the second time Sandall Park was that location.

Thanks Radio Sheffield for thinking of us and well done to all the listeners who managed to ‘find’ Sandall Park.

That Went Well………

Our thanks to everyone who supported todays events in the park – and what a day it was. It turned out to be our biggest EVER fundraiser thanks to everyones kindness and generosity.

For the record more than 1,000 children completed the Easter egg hunt, 258 people took part in the Hook a Duck Championships and more than £500 was raised on the tombola. Every penny from today will be invested in the park.

Our thanks also go to some special volunteers who made today happen as they are not formal members of the Friends of Sandall Park – but wanted to help out….. brilliant.

The busiest ‘people’ today were Minnie and Mickey mouse. Regular supporters of ours…. so thanks Spotty Frogs. The Easter bonnet competition was tough call!

Finally we must point out the hard work and contribution of the council Neighbourhood Team – without them today would never have happened. Thankyou.

All in all – a cracking day. Bring on the next event……..
