HORSEWELL POND in Ivy Lane, Hedon is listed as a site of local significance within the town’s conservation area. However, the pond has suffered from overgrown plants and silting in recent years which hides the actual deep water beneath.
Now Hedon Town Council is taking the lead in helping restore the pond but is requesting help from the public. See this from Hedon Deputy Mayor, Councillor Jim Lindop:
Hedon Town Council in partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust would like volunteers to help with the first stage of the restoration of Horsewell Pond, Ivy Lane.
The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will take the lead and direct the work that is required, it would be very helpful if some volunteers from Hedon could get involved.
This will take place at 10am on Saturday 28th January 2012. If you can help, please bring the correct footwear and possibly a spade.
Many Thanks for your help.
Councillor Jim Lindop Deputy Mayor
