Group aims to protect pond life
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.
