VOLUNTEERS will carry out thousands of pounds’ worth of maintenance work to a popular pond.

Around 20 workers from Amey LG, a public services firm which deals with public services like highways and railways, will help out at the North Pond in Bishop’s Waltham.

It forms part of the restoration of the pond, which started two years ago after being voted the top environmental concern of its neighbours.

Volunteers will carry out work worth around £5,500 by lifting trees, laying a wheelchair access path and treating Japanese Knotweed.

The volunteers start work tomorrow.

Without their help, the Bishop’s Waltham North Pond Conservation Group would otherwise have had to raise cash to pay for the work themselves.
