Fleet Pond is managed by Hart District Council’s Countryside Service and Tim Ackroyd is the new Ranger for the Nature Reserve. Previously the Fleet Pond Ranger was Joanna Lawrence and Joanna is now studying at Sussex University for an MSc in Biodiversity.
“I have been working for Hart District Council’s Countryside Service as a Countryside Ranger for over three years and previously worked as an assistant ranger for Hampshire County Council based at Yateley Common. I have enjoyed the experience of looking after a variety of interesting sites over the years and I am very excited to take on my new role as Fleet Pond Ranger.
It is a very exciting time to be involved in the management of Fleet Pond. The Nature Reserve is undergoing some important changes over the next ten years with significant restoration of habitats and infrastructure. These changes will hopefully bring about considerable benefits, both for wildlife and for people.”
