The Sandall Park parkrun goes from strength to strength. Last Saturdays run had 126 complete the course.
This is all great for the park and of course for park visitors with yet another event for the take part in or even to watch and be inspired.
Well done to parkrun and especially the volunteers who make it happen EVERY Saturday morning at 9am – come rain or shine!
107 completed yesterdays parkrun as it continues to be one of the most popular events in the park…. and it’s free!
Well done to everyone – especially the volunteers who make it happen – week after week after week……….
OK – The ‘Cricket Pitch’. The area that was ploughed up (formerly a cricket pitch) was as a result of a local cricket team asking the council if they could use the park as their home ground.
After a huge amount of preparation work by the council the team has given back word. Because of forthcoming events over the summer we are encouraging the council to make sure the area is restored so that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
We were contacted by another person wishing play cricket in the park last year but unfortunately I can’t find his contact details. If he would contact us again maybe we can resurrect the cricket project…..
A big welcome back to Jim Fletcher, his first parkrun since being tackled by a goose back in January.
It was a nasty injury and it’s great to see Jim back running again. Thought we had better check he wasn’t too nervous around the geese.
Another busy Sandall Park day in the morning – parkrun, cycling, fitness training and football….. for the middle of February that’s not bad at all.
If all else fails just visit the park to have a walk, feed the ducks, have a picnic or just do your own thing. The weather forecast is not too bad AND it’s Valentines day!
The usual Saturday activities are set for the morning with parkrunners, footballers, keep fit and cyclists!
The weather doesn’t look too bad either – a bit warmer and little wind. Good time for a PB in the parkrun.
