On Wednesday, we were delighted to hold a Grand Opening Ceremony for our new wildlife pond. This was made possible by the kind support of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, who provided all the materials, and sent one of their team, Mr Peter Eley, to design and co-ordinate the work. The pond was then built by a team of volunteers from the local YMCA. We are now looking forward to seeing all the wildlife that will be attracted to the pond, even though we are in the middle of the city, and next year the children will be able to go “pond-dipping” to investigate what is in there for themselves.
We are very grateful to everyone who gave their support and hard work in making this project possible, and would like to say a huge ”Thank you” to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and the YMCA.
