Swans on the Pond?
"Look North" have asked why we do not have any real swans on the pond. It’s a question other villagers may be asking again since our temporary, inflatable pair have arrived!

There used to be a pair of resident Swans on the pond, however after one was killed crossing the road and the other re-homed
to a swan sanctuary. it was decided that the pond not big enough to safely have swans. Read more details Swans on Swanland Pond (pdf)

Pond Survey
Engineering firm, Mason Clark Associates, have carried out a 3D laser scan of the pond's perimeter to produce a topographical survey drawing of the area; including information on water levels. This survey was proposed to further investigate our leakage problem and when combined with other information, should help direct any future investigations or remedial work.

Mason Clark will be returning at a later date to measure the depth of the pond and carry out a visual inspection of the perimeter. The SPP are very grateful to the Parish Council for agreeing to fund this survey.
