Volunteers Asked to Help Cut Trees by York Pond

Minster FM News Generic

6:01am 2nd November 2013

City of York Council, together with The Friends of Chapman’s Pond are inviting anglers and volunteers to come along and take part in the many improvements taking place at the Pond off Moor Lane.

The Friends are working with the council to put together a management plan for the site to make improvements for both people and wildlife. The aim is to secure a Green Flag Award for the area. A new footpath into the site has already improved the access and this was made possible through a successful funding bid to Yorventure.

This weekend the next phase of cutting back and managing trees starts with the assistance of one of the council’s Smarter York officers. Volunteers are invited to join the Friends of Chapman’s Pond at a workday on Saturday 2 November where some basic training will be given to all those taking part. Everyone is welcome to turn up between 1pm and 3pm – all tools are provided but be prepared to get muddy!

Councillor Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism said:“Chapman’s Pond is a gem of a public space and is a great example of how the Friends, the council and other organisations are all working together to make this a better recreational space”.

The Friends of Chapman’s Pond have also been working to try and promote responsible use of the site. With the help of the Get Hooked on Fishing programme, the Angling Trust and the police they would like to deliver regular fishing coaching sessions to encourage people to learn more about this sport. They are running a taster session for this programme on Saturday 9 November from 11am to 3pm. For more information or to book a space please contact Sarah on sarah.collins@ghof.org.uk or visit www.ghof.ork.uk
