Thanks to the generous funding from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme work is now well underway on the redevelopment of our pond area.
It was amazing to see the space appearing once our contractor Groundwork started the ground clearance, moving fallen trees and clearing scrub and brambles.
New screening has been erected, and now that the natural light can get into the site the hawthorn hedge which was already in situ should be able to flourish.
New gates are in place and the boundary has been moved to provide a better access. The newly laid paths allow for access around the whole site and will be safe for wheelchair users. A new beach area has been created on the side closest to the house.
The platform has been removed from the pond and the new one has been positioned to allow fuller use of the whole site.
We are looking forward to the next steps which include fencing around the pond, seating and a shelter.
