The next Doncaster GreenSpace Network meeting will be as follows: confirmed guest speakers for the next DGSN, Wednesday 21st March 2018, 5-7pm at Townfield Pavilion, Thorne Road, Doncaster, DN1 2JP.

Katy Turner – Voluntary Sector Co-ordinator DMBC

Introduction to the group and to discuss possible funding opportunities.

Bill Hotchkiss –  Head of Service – Community Safety DMBC

Following the last DGSN I emailed Bill and explained a number of volunteer groups have and continue to experience ASB on the sites they volunteer. And have expressed concerns there is no support from the SYP and the local authority, so said he would attend to discuss this with volunteers.

Next Meeting – Date to be Arranged

The date of the next Network meeting is yet to be fixed. The last meeting on the 7th June was well attended.

The meeting included a presentation from the local representative of the RSPB. In attendance were reps from the Friends of Sandall Park, Friends of Martinwells Lake, Friends of Denaby Crags, Friends of Grove Gardens and others. The council were well represented to answer any queries.

The subject of Public Space Protection Orders were discussed, crime in parks as well as the future direction of the group – which is looking good and inclusive.

We we will publish the date of the next meeting as soon as possible.
