New Residents at Chorleywood Primary Allotment

Gardening Club has been very busy building a pond on the allotment and releasing some frogs spawn there. Mrs Davis said ""The space was originally homed by a ceramic sink but the frogs found it difficult getting in and out. We are hoping the frogs will prefer our new design which is abour 1.5 m sq.. It is much larger and completely built by the Gardening club. They dug down deep for the pond liner making sure the surfaces were clear of stones and level. Then they placed the liner in the hole and filled with fresh rain water that we have collected from our water butts on the allotment. Recycled wood chips and logs donated by PC Landscapes were placed around the overlap of the liner . The pond has been temporally made safe with a wire grid but we will be building a live willow guard which will go over the full area of the pond. The whole area surrounding it will be made to look like a wildlife area. We are so excited for the frogs,lets hope they will be content in their new habitat.""
