Swanland Pond is a much-admired focal point in the village.

Following the award of a silver medal in the 2003 Britain in Bloom competition, resident Mal Cracknell pioneered a Swanland in Bloom group, which led to many improvements around the pond area and an annual display of plants and flowers all through the summer months.

The late Carole Ledgarde founded the Wildlife group, which planted aquatic plants around the pond Perimeter.

Currently the pond area is maintained by several groups of volunteers.

 The Gardening Group plant and cultivate the area around the pond.
It is a very informal group who meet up at the pond every Tuesday morning.
If they have any meetings they are often just discussed while they are at the pond!

Minutes are the 120+ minutes spent every week at the pond

A rota of volunteers to keep the plants watered is published on this website by the gardening group.

A rota of litter picking volunteers keep the area clean and tidy is published on this website by Christine Walker of the SVA.

The pond itself (water quality, wildlife and aquatic plants) is maintained by the Pond Partnership run by Alyson
