The Quiet Graden was today the venue for a workout as part of the mental Health Awareness week. Our thanks to Isiasha for giving time and skills freely. Thankyou
Our volunteers spent another day installing a new archway leading into the Quiet garden.
We had a VERY productive meeting with a manager at Sainsbury’s this week.
They’d like to partner with Friends of Sandall Park and volunteer, committing to 150 hours of volunteering in their 150th anniversary year. It won’t stop there though – they want to continue the relationship with us, working within the community for the benefit of all.
We look forward to a long and lasting relationship!
It’s that time of the year again when we have a lot of goslings and ducklings in the park. So, a request please that dogs owners keep their dogs on a lead near the lake. We were down this early morning checking the new tarmac and saw one owner allowing their dog to chase geese.
The geese can fly off but the goslings can’t. We would remind people it is an offence to allow their dog to worry wildlife in the park.and the area is also subject of a Public Space Protection Order – which means that dogs must be kept on a lead on the paths around the lake. A fixed penalty ticket can be issued in these circumstances. We have asked the council for increased enforcement.
The lake side and childrens play areas are the only places in the park where dogs should be on a lead. This is reasonable, the park is massive and there is room for everyone.
We thank everyone for their co-operation.
