Defib Deployed

The use of the Public Access Defibrillator in the park (funded by parkrunners) has been called upon  when a customer in Lidl had a heart attack. The 999 caller was directed to the defib and it was taken for use to Lidl. CPR was administered and fortunately the defib wasn’t needed. The defib is now back in its house.

Although the defib was not used – this is a great result. Thankyou parkrun people…. you have made our little part of Doncaster sooooo much safer.

What a Day THAT Was!

An unbelievable day in the park with 500 Santa’s and reindeer’s taking part in the Doncaster Santa Dash.

A huge thankyou to everyone who took part, the council neighbourhood team (without them the event would not go ahead) all our own volunteers and of course all the sponsors for the Dash.

Massive well done to Ready Steady Store – they were here today but their main support has been the storage of the Santa suits (obvious) and the distribution of the suits and antlers (not so well known). Again without them the Dash would not go ahead. 

Magnificent – bring on 2017 (10th December by the way!)
