Pill Pond, West Burton, works

As part of our programme for the upkeep and maintenance of our public open spaces, work has just been completed at the Pill Pond in West Burton, involving de-silting of the pond to create a deeper area in the middle to encourage and preserve wildlife throughout the year, together with repair to cavities which had appeared in the embankment. We were able to finance these works with the aid of a grant from Operation Watershed, an  Active Communities Fund created by West Sussex County Council to enable groups to apply for funding to support projects that are important to their communities, to help prepare and protect against flooding and flood issues.
