Although Groundworks do not have the funding available to proceed at this stage with their work to create a community allotment area, they have managed to dig the two ponds as part of the drainage improvement works along the northern arae of the site.

The pond takes water from one of the land drains along that side of the site, and the overflow from the ponds is then returned to the drain further along.

Some planting has already been done, with Norfolk Reeds and Yellow Irises around the edge and Water Lilly and Pondweed in the ponds.

More work is needed, but at least we are underway.
