In 2003 Fleet Pond Society was honoured to receive ‘The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service’, an ‘Unsung Heroes’ award through which Her Majesty recognised the important work carried out by our volunteers.
We were the only conservation group in Hampshire to receive this recognition. We continue to proudly display the award logo on our literature today.
In November 2003, Colin and Mavis Gray and Peter and Barbara Martin were invited to the Great Hall at Winchester to meet Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.
Her Majesty chatted with them about the Pond and the conservation work which the Society volunteers carry out.
