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.

Great team work between FoSP and the newly formed Sandall Park Angling Club – producing sacks full of litter and rubbish.

Would You Believe This?

 We knew litter was bad – luckily not too bad in the park. But these figures are amazing……. another good reason for making sure our own little bit of Doncaster is clean and tidy.
