Scone Park pond was given a spring clean on Friday 13th April and although the date maybe unlucky for some, no one fell in the pond so proved lucky for us!
A group of local residents helped extract litter from the pond edges using extended litter pickers. We will go back into the pond in October to remove some of the vegetation when pond insects have stopped breeding and will collect the litter in the centre of the pond then. The pond was busy with bird life – mallard ducks, moorhen and the swans were guarding their newly constructed nest.
A big thanks to everyone who came along on the day. We are gauging interest in a volunteer group to help with tasks in Scone Park and wider Scone area such as footpath maintenance and keeping paths clear from vegetation.
