‘Someone’ just doesn’t want the park toilets stay open. Cleaned and stocked up by volunteers this morning, the ladies was trashed by the end of play today.
The toilets would normally be closed throughout the winter until the 1st April but as most know – volunteers have worked hard to keep them open. We are beginning to wonder maybe why?
The great thing is that we know that 99.9% of park visitors welcome the facilities in the park and as always we will never let one setback knock us off course – we’ve come too far………..
Damage in the park is rare but today saw a strange incident where parents actually condoned damage caused to trees by there own children.
You can see a full report and the reaction from park supporters on our Facebook page.
Bit of help needed please. We have another quad bike problem this time on the old Golf Course. Late evening 7.30pm -10pm. No lights, no plates , no numbers. The authorities are aware but as we know it’s a tricky one to sort……. but not impossible – with everyones help.
There is a huge danger to park users even at this time of the evening as there are plenty of evening dog walkers on the park at this time.
It would be a real shame if they crashed into a tree (honest). We’d hate a tree to be damaged!
In the first instance please ring 101 or the out of hours council response team on 01302 341628 (out of hours). You can message us but we are not the fourth emergency service. Any description would be great – they usually head off on Thorne road towards town.
We have good record of eventually catching these people so let’s do it again.
Someone is determined that the park toilets will close – for the third time in a month our storage cubicle in the gents toilets has been broken into. If this was three strikes – the toilets would now be closed.
Extra vigilance please. It is always a morning and it is always a week day and nothing is stolen – just damage that we have to pay for.
Our keen FoSP Ranger Les spotted some dodgy looking bread in the park recently.
It had been placed by two youths (other park visitors offered this information) near the picnic area and had green pellets in it. Lots of enquiries have been made, the council and police are aware and are going to step up patrols. We cannot confirm it was poison, though that is what it looked like.
If you see anything at all suspicious please notify the police immediately. As always, our volunteers are on the ball and will deal with anything they see that is remotely dodgy.
Another campaign day in the park – encouraging people not to give the ducks and geese white bread.
It started with our volunteers doing a live interview with BBC Radio Sheffield at 7am (in the dark!) Great interviews and coverage.
This was then followed a blitz of Tweets on the subject and then later in the day volunteers set up an information stand handing out bird seed and information sheets.
Well done volunteers and thanks to everyone for your support.
