Watch out for wasps Nests

We currently have at least two wasps nests in the park that people should be aware of.

1.One is in the BUG hotel in the trees between the play area and Thorne Road near the main car park.

2. The second is in the woodwork of the Herb garden near where the parkrun finish line is.

Both have been marked with warning notices.

We are currently taking advice on what the council policy is for wasp nests in public places.

TiCLsticks are GO!

We are indebted to the 1st/36th St Peters Warmsworth Scouts, Cubs and Beavers for our fabulous TiCLsticks family. They are now happily living in the trees around the park and will be entertaining children and families who visit, and get them exercising at the same time. 

The TiCL app is already up and running. They have all been given names of people linked to the scout/guide movement.

If you haven’t tried our TiCLsticks trail yet – you should. It’s free and it’s a great way to have a look around the park.

You can have a look at the tree trail on-line by CLICKING HERE.

You can download the free App and track the characters around the park by downloading the TiCL app from the App store or Google play. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a smartphone CLICK HERE to download and print a map of the rough location of each TiCLperson and let the kids search to their hearts content – a great way to spend the summer holidays.

2019 Santa Dash to Go Ahead

We have exciting news about this year’s Doncaster Santa Dash. 
It did look as though we were going to have to cancel this year’s event and remove it from our calendar altogether.

The key FoSP organiser suffered a stroke last year and organising events is no longer an option for him.
However! Curly’s Athletes have stepped up to the plate and are going to take over the running of the event.
They are keen to keep it – as far as they can – much the same as the event we have run for the last ten years. The beneficiary charities will remain the same as last year.
Jono and his team will do all they can to ensure everyone has as fabulous a time as they always have at this ‘start to Christmas’ fun day. The only difference will be that this year it will be on Saturday 7th December – and not Sunday 8th. This is because they already organise a run at the Northern Racing College on the Sunday and it wasn’t suitable terrain for the Santa Dash to transfer to there.
We hope that you will give Curly’s Athletes the same support you have given us over the years – and have a great time!
Further information will become available as the new team get things organised.
