Yorkshire Post Litter Campaign

Yorkshire post 1The Yorkshire Post are running a campaign to clean up God’s own county…………

We will do our best to be part of the campaign – we supported the Grande Depart and we supported the Tour de Yorkshire (even if it didn’t come through Doncaster – maybe next year?)

Our big day will come on Monday 8th June at 10.00 in the main car park when our illustrious band of volunteers will attack the park (metaphorically speaking of course) to ensure it is spotless following Sundays BIG Lunch.

Litter – Hedgehog Traps

KFC supplies the most litter in the picnic area and we have noticed a huge increase in this sort of litter that is a huge danger to all our wildlife especially hedgehogs.

One day maybe a member of staff would walk the 30 yards to the picnic area at the close of play and clear things up………. we’ve been here before and it’s time to work on it again.

No Soiled Nappies Please!

Over the last week volunteers cleaning the toilets have had to remove soiled nappies from both the baby change facility and the disabled toilets – in spite of signs informing them that we do not have disposal facilities and a request for them to be taken home.

Baby change signA request on Facebook has met with overwhelming support for our stance on this.  Bizarrely two people thought it was OK to leave soiled nappies for volunteers to clear up. Not true.

The very existence of toilets in the park is on a knife-edge and we need the support of everyone to make sure they are treated with respect and remain open. Toilets facilities are key to our park development strategy.
