The sun beamed down on the Fleet Pond Wildlife Open Day as families enjoyed the multitude of activities and walks on offer. These ranged from guided insect walks, to demonstrations of chainsaw artwork – with the chance to part-take of delicious refreshments provided by Odiham Scouts.

The new dipping platform, sponsored by the Fleet Townswomen’s Guild, and built by volunteers from the Fleet Pond Society was a roaring success.  The platform was officially opened by ladies from the Guild, and for the rest of the day there was a constant stream of adults and children dipping the provided nets into the waters of The Flash.

Congratulations to Fleet Pond Ranger, Louise Greenwood, and her colleagues at Hart Countryside Services for organising such a great day – including the weather!
