The trustees of Fleet Pond Society consider that an Independent Examination of its accounts is good practice, although this is not required by the Charities Commission because of the level of our activities. Our Annual Report and Accounts are always independently examined.
For details of the main achievements in previous years and/or copies of our annual reports and accounts, please contact our secretary on email@example.com.
Our annual accounts for 2022/2023 have been formally examined and signed off by the Executive Committee. You can download them, annual report and accounts 22-23 annual report and accounts 22-23
The work of the Society was able to get back to a more normal level following the removal of the various Government restrictions on public activities that were in place to tackle the Coronavirus pandemic. The Society has continued the voluntary management activity at Fleet Pond, including habitat management and repair and upgrade of paths and protective fencing.
We commissioned a new group of volunteers to study the moth populations on the reserve. We funded new equipment to do this, and very interesting results have been noted and reported to the County Moth Recorder.
We spent a significant amount of funds on purchasing new types of tools and replacements to allow us to be more efficient in our conservation work. We were also very proud to design and install a new butterfly ID board in the memory of our late President, Peter Martin.
We received a good number of donations this year from activities our public supporters carried out, money in lieu of flowers at funerals of our members as well as Southern Co-ops. The amount of these donations we received totalled roughly £2900.
