The FoSP 100 Club has had a couple of members drop out in recent weeks creating a space for new entries.
Advertising on Facebook has filled the spaces but we can still take new entries if anyone is interested.
Anyone interested in joining the 100 Club will have a chance of winning £30/£15/£5 per month and support the park at the same time……. for just £1 per month!
Interested? Contact us via our contacts page.
Not a bad turnout this morning for the Sandall Park leg of the Doncaster Walking Festival.
Given the icy wind in fact it was a very good turnout so thanks to everyone for supporting the event and we hope you enjoyed finding out a little about the park.
Another tree has come down in the gales and snow – this one blocking the footpath near the picnic area.
The council have been informed.
If it not cleared by Saturday it should NOT cause a problem for parkrunners as they can just make a minor detour around the obstruction. The parkrun Race Director has been informed.
Thankyou to everyone who has contacted us about the big branch that has come down on the old golf course in the winds.
The council have been informed and it will be remove in due course.
The Sandall Park Angling Club (SPAC) yesterday spent three hours clearing litter from the North Bank of the lake.
A great piece of work from Team SPAC as that area is very difficult for our own volunteers to get to. Can we say big thankyou from FoSP and well done.
The playground on Barnby Dun Road is to get a refurb. Some current equipment will be replaced by new kit due to it having reached its sell by date and may become dangerous.
1. The current ‘spiders web’ will be a replaced by a rope cone that spins round;
2. The roundabout will be replaced by a ‘dish’ that is suitable for the less able;
3. There will be a ‘Jetski on a spring’;
4. Two new seats within the area;
5. The red safety matting will be covered with a green grassmat type safety covering.
It should all look pretty good when completed and should be sorted by Easter. There may a little inconvenience while the work is being carried out – so please be patient.
