The weather was cooperating for the village pond tidy up on November 17th, with it being cool but sunny. With the help of a band of volunteers the pond has had it annual hair cut. The cutting back of vegetation will help encourage greater biodiversity around the banks of the pond, as well as improving its appearance. See the photos below to see what has been achieved.
Many thanks must be extended to the volunteers who managed to do great work within a short time. Without their help the pond would not be as healthy as it is now.
Looking forward to next year there is much to do at the Bascote Road Community Nature Reserve. An ambitious plan of activity is anticipated to get the reserve into good shape to be able to be opened to the public. There is a seasonal pond to create, footpath to finish, fences to construct, gates to build, and hedgerows to be restored and new ones planted.
Lots to do!
In the new year there will be plenty of opportunities to help. If you are interested then please get in touch, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates to follow. 😃
