Plans have been in the pipeline for a number of years to replace the cafe in Sandall Park with a brand new, modern state of the art building overlooking the park’s lake.

Now a spokesman for Friends of Sandall Park, the volunteer organisation that looks after the park, has announced that work has started.

Posting on Facebook, a FOSP spokesman said: “Great news! The first stage of the café development is taking place.

"An in-depth survey of the ground is being conducted by architects. Exciting news indeed.”

The plan was finally given the go-ahead by Doncaster Council last February.

Under the scheme, the current cafe – which is closed due to coronavirus restrictions – will be demolished and replace with a brand new and modern building, forming a distinctive landmark in the popular park.
