Changing Place now Open 4 Business!

We’ve eagerly followed work on this CPT – from fundraising to installation, so we’re very happy to say a huge well done to Sandall Park!

This Changing Places toilet has been installed with funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities programme

Christmas Came Early – Changing Place in Place!

Well it was long time coming, but it will be worth the wait with this great facility in the park. It will be up and running shortly.


Huge thanks to everyone involved – this will make a huge difference to our disabled visitors to the park.

Parkrun Cancelled due to flooding

Copied from Parkrun Facebook Page:
Event cancelled!
We have been for an early course check this morning and unfortunately we have decided to cancel tomorrow’s parkrun.

There are several large puddles across the course which are deep.

The football field is also saturated and the area by the playground is very wet.

We don’t think the course would be safe which is why we have cancelled.
Lots of other parkruns on this weekend though so it might be a good opportunity for a bit of tourism.
Next week is forecast to be a bit drier so fingers crossed the course gets chance to dry out a bit.
Have a lovely weekend!

Mural Centerpiece In Changing Place.

Our Changing Place is in the final stages of coming to fruition. We can’t wait to see it open!

The Pod is under construction by Rise Adaptations (https://riseadapt.co.uk/) and as you can see, our Love Grows Here Tree, depicting the donors to the facility, has already been installed. The design is based on our logo, devised by our friend Noelle of IFoSP (International Friends of Sandall Park) in New Jersey. 

The artwork is by Natasha Clarke of https://www.natashaclarkeart.com/  (who painted our mural in the Quiet Garden). We think you’ll agree – it looks amazing!
