Background to Fleet Pond Society:
Fleet Pond Society (FPS) was formed in 1976 to help maintain Fleet Pond Local Nature Reserve and works in close co-operation with Hart Countryside Services. It is a Registered Charity and its Patron is Chris Packham, the well-known TV-presenter, photographer and author.
The Society runs a wide range of activities including organising volunteer conservation events, guided walks, educational visits to schools, research on environmental and wildlife matters and corporate team building events. The current membership is over 450 (plus one corporate member to date) and the Society maintains both this blog and a web site.
