We have recovered a shopping trolley from the bog pond…… and in the best use of available resources it was used to relocate a damaged information board that had been damaged in the park.
Not ideal but someone’s got to sort it. Small stuff really but all in the ‘line of duty’ for our volunteers.
For the first time in years we had a graffiti attack in the park – it is annoying but we’ve sorted it now and things looking tidy again.
We would appreciate any information anyone recognises the tag.
Someone overnight upended our Tour de Yorkshire cycle and all the flower baskets on it.
Worse things have happened in urban parks but it’s annoying all the same. Delighted to see our volunteers hard at ‘work’ unfazed by the problem.
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!
Here are some interesting stats from the Spring Clean weekend – well done to everyone who took part…… and got wet – you are in these stats somewhere!
We’re going through a bad patch at the moment with more crimes reported in the last week than we have had in the last year (in fact five years). This one is detectable though.
On Friday evening a set of two metal goal posts and nets were stolen from next to the football club container. Two ‘people’ were apparently seen carrying them across the park and on to the Clay Lane estate.
Things like this can cripple a small group like Sandall Park Rangers Junior Footbal Club so any information would be appreciated. Report any information via Crimestoppers, 101 or PM us (via Facebook) in confidence. We want these back.
