A Doncaster park is set to make a splash thanks to improvements at its lake.
About £70,000 has been spent on maintenance work at Sandall Park’s lake
Friends of Sandall Park (FoSP) received a £50,000 WREN grant and Doncaster Council allocated about £20,000 of Section 106 money, which is cash that developers of larger sites pay to the council to reduce the impact of their development, for the project.
Wheatley Ward Councillors allocated the Section 106 money for the project. Councillor Moira Hood said: ‘We are very pleased with the work, it is money well spent.’
The scheme has enhanced the lake edging at Sandall Park www.doncaster.gov.uk/countryside. This has improved its appearance and created an access point to clear any accumulation of debris and waste.
Councillor Joe Blackham Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Enforcement and Trading Services, said: ‘This is an excellent example of local people working with the council to improve their neighbourhoods.’
Peter Cox, managing director of WREN, said: ‘WREN makes a difference to people’s lives by awarding grants to community, environmental and heritage projects across the UK.’
