Pond near the
School exit
The School exit pond has been filled in to become a boggy plant area and is currently seeded as a wild flower bed.
A new amphibian pond has been created between the exit and the bridge. It will be dug deeper in the Autumn 2021 to enable pond lilies to grow and will be more suitable for pond life.
On-going
