Our Chairman has been on BBC Radio Surrey

Our new chairman Jim did his first live broadcast on 29 May with the Beeb. He met up with Allison Ferns of BBC Radio Surrey when their Big Bus Tour came to Fleet – in the rain. You can hear what they talked about starting at 1 hour 11 mins in at https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p078sxd5. He also got the chance to review with Allison what was in the daily papers. And we have to say at that point the views expressed were Jim’s own! All the crew were very welcoming and Jim had a really great time.

Launch of the Member’s Gallery

We are pleased to launch a new initiative where members of the FPS can share their favourite photographs taken in and around Fleet Pond nature reserve.  The rules can be found here Gallery Rules

We will aim to update the photographs on a regular basis, at least monthly. Send your photographs to membersgallery@fleetpond.org.uk together with your name and a short caption to accompany the photograph. We look forward to seeing your photographs and sharing the beauty of Fleet Pond with others.

At the moment the gallery contains favourite photographs from members of our committee. Check out the gallery so far, it can be found under the Galleries Page.

Conservation Sundays

On Sunday 9th June, a good sized team of volunteers enjoyed clearing invasive plants  on the dry heath, near Boat House Corner. This is important to ensure the heathland remains clear of all vegetation which could soon turn the area into a woodland. Check out our chairman joining in the fun, good job Jim! Further photographs can be found in the gallery.

 

 

If you wish to join us on our next volunteering session on Sunday 8th September 2019 you will need to book your place with the Countryside Ranger and further details can be found at Conservation Tasks page  or on our Blog here.
