Soap Box Racing Anyone?

New Event for the Summer Holidays! Doncaster Soap Box Derby in Sandall Park. Before we make any firm commitment to organising this (it won’t be easy!) would people support it and enter?
soap boxDo dads have the skill and knowledge from their days as a youngster to help in the construction of such mechanical masterpieces? Can you drag your kids away from the computer and XBox long enough to engage in the building of their trolley and participate in the event? Let’s have your thoughts and we’ll see where it takes us ……….

Friends With Friends

After a mega weekend in the park, it still looked lovely for a visit by some new found friends – Friends of West Park, Goole.

CIMG6319They, and a couple of Goole council staff, came to see how Sandall Park operates. A very nice morning was spent in discussion and a tour of the park. And we didn’t get wet!

Proms Day – Brilliant!

That was a great event …..even by FoSP standards! Great weather – great people.

A new location in the park for this years event and we think it worked well – in fact very well according to the people we talked to.

A huge thankyou to the Doncaster Concert Band and the Senior Brass Group for coming to our park. But special thanks to everyone who supported the event….. without you it would never happen.

The event raised £500 for the Doncaster Concert Band – a Doncaster institution that has brought enjoyment to thousands of people.

Good luck too to all our junior Sandall Park football teams taking part in a mega tournament in the park today.
