Friday 1st September – Friday 8th September, with machinery arriving Monday 4th September. We ask that residents and visitors don't park in front of the bollards on Church Lane, to ensure safe and easy access for the contractors and machinery.
Kindly remain considerate of ongoing works and machinery in and around the pond area.
Our project has received a £23,269 grant from HS2’s Community & Environment Fund (CEF). The CEF fund has been created by HS2 to add benefit to communities along the route that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of Phase One of HS2 from London to West Midlands / Phase 2a of HS2 from the West Midlands to Crewe.
We’ll be carrying out the restoration of Hampden Pond and the environment around it which involves:
Reducing the lilies and rhizomes in the water which are restricting oxygen levels, this will also result in an increase in different plant species in the pond enhancing the biodiversity.
Removing deadwood/falling trees from the banks which are a health and safety risk, the Parish Council will be planting trees to replace the felled trees, the hope is to plant tree species that aren’t already found around the pond.
Repairing, and improving an eroded section of the bank to make it safer for residents and visitors to enjoy the open space.
