We are converting an unused, un-loved boating pong into a Wildlife habitat.

Weston-super-Mare Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We have a leaking, unused boating pond which we faithfully clean every year and had publicised this facility with appropriate groups, schools etc, but never attracted any boating use. The idea behind the Wildlife Pond is that it will provide the missing link in our habitat offering. Of course the development of this space is beyond our developed basic skill sets of clearing, weeding, planting, maintaining, etc. So we approached and presented our ideas to North Somerset Council, resulting in the agreement for our project to go forward. I can assure you that our Group is here to stay as demonstrated by our successful 6 years to date, and look forward to a successful conclusion.

What we'll deliver:

  • Deliver a Wildlife Pond in an attractive space
  • Deliver new eye-catching fountain
  • provide opportunities for pond dipping

Why it's a great idea:

Will attract more visitors to these Gardens, which provides the single green lung for locals residing in converted victorian villas without outside space. Will deliver an improved bio diverse environment. Will deter inappropriate behaviour in this otherwise little visited space

Steps to get it done:

  • construction
  • site preparation
  • add water!
  • planting out

We are well advanced in our funding, just the last hurdle to go!
