Fishing is NOT PERMITTED on the pond, even with a rod license. The police are monitoring the situation.

If you witness anyone fishing and feel comfortable please point out the signs, if this conversation turns abusive call 101.

Duck Food Signs
Two signs in the pond highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks. Healthier food (grain) is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves.
