  1. I am very frustrated today, some vile idiot has removed the donated duck feeding advice sign from the wall at the duck pond and thrown it into the pond. I am also quite concerned as there are a several large dead fish both in the water and one on the side near to where the bamboo is located. (not sure what fish these are?) Possibly eaten and killed by Otters The pond is fairly shallow and clear and I spotted a number of big fish swimming around which has confirmed to me there are plenty of fish in the water however, I do have concerns over what has caused these others to die. I still have additional signs at home and it looks like we will have to house tase in a enclosed notice board. I am aware that there are a few scattered about the city no longer being used that we may be able to use going forward. There is also still a lot of discarded rubbish, can and signs still in the water which needs removing, so another clean up will be required once the weather improves, I will advise a mutually agreed date in the coming months. In the meantime have a look at the photographs that I took today.
  2. Hereford duck Pond Day - Sunday 7th October 9am-3pm We will continue to paint the remainder of the metal fence, put up two new signs and generally clean up the surrounding area to include weeding and clearing over grown bushes etc. Please bring garden tools and garden bags etc like last time. We will try and arrange refreshments again, I am sure that Castle House Hereford will help out, they have always been excellent.
  3. Duck Pond Day - Sunday 24th June 10-4pm. We need Volunteers! We will continue to paint the remainder of the metal fence, put up two new signs and generally clean up the surrounding area to include weeding and clearing over grown bushes etc. Please bring garden tools and garden bags etc like last time. We will try and arrange refreshments again, I am sure that Castle House Hereford will help out, they have always been excellent.
  4. We notified Balfour Beatty about our second action day weeks in advance, yet a week after all of our hard work I find myself picking up some of our own litter from the bags we left last weekend. Yes it is all still there! Nothing has been collected! All these volunteers have given up their day and time to commit to this fantastic project and it feels like we are unappreciated with this lack of response, not impressed at all. I am also waiting for promised emails and the results from the tree survey which took place weeks ago, I am starting to realise why things take so long in this city, well I am not going away, on the contrary, I will just increase the volume!
  5. Okay folks I have just had a discussion with Keith and we have agreed Sunday 19th November 0900-1400 for 'Phase 2'. We obviously need as much help again and we will see if we can encourage the scout/cubs etc to keep us refreshed with beverages again. The plan of actions is to clear some of the outstanding dead branches and bushes and to paint the fence! We will also continue to try and break the back of the duckweed and also erect two additional signs. I have got the funding for some Hammerite and I will make sure that we have a dozen of so paint brushes to make light work of the 75 metre length. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  6. Well I have some good news :) I have managed to secure funding to buy some decent Hammerite paint for the fence and aerating pumps for the pond. I will have a chat with the other guys involved and we will agree another day here to finish off what we started.
  7. A few months ago we were walking past the duck pond and noticed how dirty and full of algae it had become and I commented at the time on how it had deteriorated over the years. A few days later I noticed a new Facebook group that has only recently been set up by local chap Keith Marston called 'The Duck Pond Hereford clean up' and I thought what a great idea, I joined the group immediately and said that Hereford Voice would help out and publicise this idea as much as possible. Cllr Jim Kenyon is also doing what he can to raise awareness. I took this photograph today, the pond is absolutely covered in green algae, a lot of this is because people are feeding these ducks with bread, most of us think this is kind but in reality, bread can makes ducks ill and certainly does not contain the right calories and nutrition to keep ducks warm during the winter months. Rotting bread pollutes the water and encourages bad surface algae which kill the fish and causes diseases in ducks as well making the water smell. I also thought long term could we have a food vending machine like the one in the photo below installed and the proceeds from any profits made to go towards the maintenance of the duck pond...
