Pond Partnership (SPP)
News Update -
blooms are still causing problems with water
quality, so the water does not look or smell
very good at times. Influxes of rainwater
help to improve the situation momentarily,
but the water also helps to “re-generate”
of the water which helps support the fish
also provides oxygen for the algae so the
cycle of die back and re-growth continues.
We are fortunate that the beauty of the pond
plants and the surrounding landscaping helps
to frame the water in a more beautiful setting!
We hope you
enjoyed seeing the yellow flag iris in flower
and can continue to enjoy the beauty of the
community garden, surrounding borders, planted
pots and hanging baskets/ hay racks. Thanks
to all those who work so hard all year round
to make the pond area so attractive and litter
free – we really appreciate it!
The moorhens have had another brood of chicks
which should do well as their older siblings
help to raise them!
would like to join the group of volunteers
who look after the pond, please contact Alyson
on 634 168 as we have the autumn maintenance
to plan in September/October time.
Thanks – Alyson.
