At the pond, Simon and Chris caught up with Cathi Farrer from the Parks Foundation. In the picture you can see a large new educational map of the pond, provided to help young (or not so young) visitors understand and appreciate its rich range of natural life.

Chris Rigby commented: “it’s great to see the new pond taking shape. We're looking forward to seeing it develop through spring into a thriving ecosystem that can also be enjoyed by everyone - with the Parks Foundation running pond dipping sessions, for example.”
