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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our annual accounts for 2019/20 have been formally examined and signed off by the Executive Committee. You can download them, annual report and accounts 19-20
Our conservation activities focused on routine habitat maintenance, directly mainly at heathland, woodland and marshes. We now have a new team tackling the scrub growth on the new islands that were created by the dredging a few years back. The new protective fencing we sponsored along the higher path along the eastern side of Fleet Pond is already delivering recovery of bluebells along this section.
This year has been quite unusual for the amount of donations we received which totalled roughly £15,000. This has been received as a result of bequests and money in lieu of flowers at funerals of our members. Also a local family collected donations for us from their house’s Christmas lights display. However the biggest source was our local Waitrose and Coop stores, particularly the latter.
