Group aims to pro­tect pond life

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

AN AC­TION group has been formed to save a pond which has be­come choked with an in­va­sive weed.

The Bo­tolph Green pond is full of the cras­sula weed which has taken over and is deny­ing other pond life the chance to flour­ish.

Peter­bor­ough En­vi­ron­ment City Trust (PECT) has teamed up with the River­care group and lo­cal res­i­dents to tackle the is­sue.

The group de­cided more needed to be done af­ter ini­tial work by Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil.

A meet­ing was re­cently held mark­ing the start of a com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion with Rachel Price, from the Wildlife Trust, Max­ine Palmer from PECT and Joseph Du­rant from River­care along with about 30 con­cerned res­i­dents.

Max­ine Palmer, of PECT said: “River­care is de­lighted at the re­sponse from the lo­cal res­i­dents and we ap­pre­ci­ate their con­tin­ued sup­port.”

The next con­sul­ta­tion meet­ing will be at the Fes­ti­val on the Green on June 15, 16 and 17.
