Earlier this year, Fleet Pond Society (FPS) received the Helen Deakin Environmental Award (see above, and also here for details).
We’re delighted that FPS has regularly been recognised for its many contributions to improving the environment at Fleet Pond.
Another (major) example is provided by the Fleet Pond Restoration Project which recently won the ‘Sustainability and Environmental Management Award‘ at the Institution of Civil Engineers Excellence Awards in June this year.
If you would like to support FPS in it’s conservation activities, why not become a member? See here for how to do this.
Independently of joining the Society, if you would like to help through taking part in a conservation task, either as an individual or as a team, please contact our Chairman, Colin Gray via phone 01252 616183 or email Colin Gray.
To give a flavour of typical conservation activities, here are some photos taken at different events held this year:
Premier Inn Volunteers At The Pond
Volunteers Constructing The New Pond Dipping Platform
The 22nd Odiham Fleet Scout Group At A Sunday Volunteering Session
The Scouts were working towards their Community Challenge Award, which is one of the 7 challenge awards required to earn the Chief Scouts Gold Award (the highest award available to Scouts).
