Here’s my selection of photos that were published on the blog during 2014 (plus two others). They are mostly in chronological order, January to December.

As you can see, a lot more goes on at the Pond than you might imagine!

If you’d like to support Fleet Pond Society, please consider joining, it’s just £10 a year (with the newsletter emailed) or £15 via post (see here).

Membership fees help us carry out a wide variety of tasks that extend and complement those carried out by Hart Countryside Services. In addition to this, we also greatly appreciate funds and services kindly provided by a number of local organisations and companies.

On the theme of pictures, please note that the deadline for the FPS Photographic Competition for 2014 is fast approaching – 5 January 2015. You can find the details here. Best of luck!
