Great night at the park with Armthorpe beavers scout group helping with a litter pick.

Two groups litter picked old golf course and north bank and far playground, kids brilliant really enthusiastic managed to get lots of litter.

We also gave everyone duck leaflets and duck food, they will get badges for community service to sew on to their tops and said they would love come back and work with us again. Great stuff and thnkyou to everyone.

Wet Magic Monday!

It was a very wet ‘Magic Monday’ for eight volunteers in the park today – (that’s 50 hours of ‘work’ in one day). So called because all the litter from a busy weekend disappears as if by magic! And it’s National Volunteer Week too.

Great work team FoSP – even though it was pretty wet. Loads of TLC for the park and not just litter picking.

Busy Volunteering Day

Yesterday saw a busy day for volunteers in the park with half a dozen completing a whole range of jobs including litter picking, storing bird food, handing out bird food, painting the boat, gardening and sorting the willow tunnel.


Our thanks to everyone who took part. This will be a regular Monday feature in the park – join us 10am in the main car park.

If you spot a blur of a high viz jacket – that’ll be us!

Another Volunteering Day

FoSP volunteers had yet another great day in the park this morning.

 They washed down all the picnic benches, all notice boards were repaired and updated, fallen branches were removed from wooded area, all rusty sensory trail signs painted, litter picked sensory trail and play area, tidied the park storage container, handed bird seed out, unblocked gents toilet…….. which was actually blocked by a full dog poo bag! 

Pretty satisfying morning actually……… except for the unblocking the toilet bit!
