There will be a volunteer event at Fleet Pond this coming Sunday and all are welcome to attend (see below for registering).
Colin Gray, Chairman of Fleet Pond Society, writes:
“The task for the coming Sunday will depend on how the water levels have settled after the recent rain. The target area is Coldstream Marsh (see map here), accessible from the “workers only” stile near to where the Coldstream Ditch flows under the footpath into the marsh. Alder and sallow scrub need to be cleared from this area. Soil conditions will be wet and muddy so please bring your wellies or borrow a pair of ours from the workshop.
Meet as usual at the Countryside Workshop, Old Pump House Close, Fleet, GU51 3DN at 9.15 a.m. Please park in Kenilworth Road as parking is very restricted at the workshop. Bring water if you need it but we will have our usual choice of warm beverages mid-morning.
Should you come later and cannot find us at Coldstream Marsh, call me on 07966 441671 and I will let you know if we have had to change location.”
For further information and booking for this event (which is essential as tools and resources have to be planned beforehand), please contact Hart Countryside Services:

The Sunday volunteer tasks are supervised by a Hart Countryside Ranger, Nick Macfarlane, together with members of Fleet Pond Society.
