Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with the clearing of the duck pond and gardens today and to the scouts/cubs for all of their help and for providing hot food, soup and drinks.
Also huge thanks to George from the Castle Hotel and our MP Jesse Norman.
We plan on having another day again later in the year.
Good to see Jesse Norman lending a hand today before he left for Manchester for his parties conference.

Here are a couple of before and after photographs.









The breeze had moved the duckweed to one end as you can see from this photo and although there is a lot of silt at the bottom of the pond the water itself looks pretty clean.

I called by the duck pond today and is was good to see Corden there scooping out the duckweed. To be fair to Corden he has been spending two or three hours here everyday this week in between jobs. 


The duckweed appears to be sitting at the one end, which is making it a lot easier to manage.


Corden has created a nice stack ready to be spread out, where it will rot naturally. 


If anyone is around this afternoon or tomorrow and have some nets please come along a lend a hand. I will be here again tomorrow.

The pond is looking a lot better since the event last weekend and Corden continued efforts to remove the duckweed.
