The Friends of Sandall Park have just the thing to keep youngsters entertained next month.

On April 14, the park will be the venue for an action packed day of environmental fun and games starting at 11am.

Pleveys, the park’s local garden supplier and supporter, will be in the park to help youngsters plant spring bulbs in the playground area.

They will be teaching them about plants, insects and the benefits of gardening for wildlife.

And in the afternoon, there will be ‘wild thing’ activities to get the kids exploring the park and learning about the environment in which they play.

Anyone wanting to take part just needs to turn up and register. Young children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children cannot be left unattended.

The Friends of Sandall Park are also supporting the Royal Horticultural Society’s campaign to Turn Yorkshire Yellow with all the volunteers wearing yellow.

Every child arriving dressed in yellow will receive a small treat.

Chairman of the group Sandra Crabtree said “We know how difficult it is for parents to keep the family occupied during school holidays and we thought we’d try and provide some activities within the park to get kids interested in all things nature”.
