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 was the AGM of FoSP tonight and all the officers currently in post were re-elected for another year.

After our first Crowd funding campaign the wheelchair roundabout is now in situ and up and running after its launch last weekend. Hopefully this will provide many hours of enjoyment to those who would otherwise miss out.
Our thanks go to EVERYONE who contributed.
Due to the terrible situation with the condition of the lake, and the devastating impact it had on our duck population, it has been necessary to purchase an aerator to pump the water round the lake. This is in addition to the existing fountain which couldn’t cope with the entire lake.
The cost of this (£925) has severely depleted our funds which are used to regenerate the park.
All our funds go back in to the park – we donated over £4000 to the Woodland Adventure Play area phase 1 and substantial amounts to other play areas.
If you witnessed the plight of the ducks (and even if you didn’t) we hope you will help us in our quest to recoup some of this cost. Thank you for your continued support.
