That went well!

After lots of weather prayers the sun didn’t quite shine on us but then again we didn’t get a white out as forecast.

well over 400 Santa’s took part in this years Dash and raised £000’s for local charities. Well done Doncaster – see you next year!

The weather forecast for the Santa Dash on Sunday could be classed as ‘seasonal’.  Not the best forecast we’ve ever had but we are prepared and w will take whatever is thrown at us.

Our message is clear: “Come and join the fun – wrap up warm and be prepared to smile and have some fun throughout the day”.

Damage will not deter us!

Despite the fact that ‘children’ (under the age of 18yrs is a child) tried to set fire to the new £50,000 play equipment, threatened volunteers, and children have set fire to a youngsters play facility in the playground – we, the Friends of Sandall Park, will not pack up and go home. We will not throw the towel in and say “That’s it we’ve had enough”. There are tens of thousands of people that visit the park annually, and those people get a lot of pleasure from what it has now become – a family friendly place for everyone to enjoy. For quite some years we’ve been able to say “There is no crime in Sandall Park”. That is obviously not the case at the moment. But it won’t be long before we will once again be able to say “There is no crime in Sandall Park” because we will get these numpties, these pondlife (no offence to pondlife). It might take some time, and we will need your help, but we will track them down and put a stop to it. That’s my promise to you – our park visitors and supporters.
