The Friends of Sandall Park do an April fool stunt every year – but this year it involved our good selves…….
It did escalate a bit and has been viewed by more than 233,000 people and most were ‘fooled’ because we have been besieged with requests for information on weight, bait and location.
So, for the record we can officially confirm the ‘Superpike’ featured in the picture with one of our members was an April fool…….. obviously anglers would never be fooled. Would they?
Thanks to everyone who played along………
The angling club that held the lease for angling in the park until 31st March 2015 was the ‘Anglers of Sandall Park’ (AoSP). The lease ended on 31st March 2015 and was advertised by the council.
A totally new club the ‘Sandall Park Angling Club’ (SPAC) bid for the lease and was successful starting on the 1st April 2015. SPAC has nothing whatsoever to do with the previous club. The Chairman and officers of the group are not the same.
We are aware of certain issues regarding AoSP. Any complaints regarding angling in Sandall Park prior to 31st March 2015 should be made direct to Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. Sandall Park Angling Club are not in a position to resolve issues regarding actions by AoSP or the refund of monies collected by AoSP.
The lake is fishing well at the moment with some great catches over the last week.
The next Sandall Park Angling Cub meeting will be 7pm Sunday 29th March at the Wheatley Hotel.
This is the last meeting before we officially take over the lease for the lake and your chance to have some input into the running of the club.
Todays Community Clear Up included a spring clean of the lake by the club members.
Well done to everyone who managed to make it. It is our own interest to keep the lake nice – the future of the club looks bright.
Sandall Park Angling Club have been awarded the new lease for angling in Sandall Park.
The club is looking forward to the future especially developing the club and the lake to make it the best public lake in Doncaster.
