Pond to be restored to former glory at Kenilworth school

A POND at a Kenilworth school is set for a much-needed facelift.

The Park Hill School Parents and Teachers Association has been awarded £3,640 from Warwickshire County Council’s Green Shoots Community Climate Change Fund to carry out restoration of the large pond to encourage the gradual reintroduction of biodiversity – aquatic, bird, insect and small mammals.

The PTA plan to remove the existing pond and fencing and clear out the overgrown plants. In its place they will create a new pond with a decked viewing platform, plant some new native plants and install a new fence and gate.

PTA chair Sara Hattersley said: “The Park Hill pond is a much-loved feature of our school grounds, enabling children from our wider community to enjoy and learn from it. Our school families worked really hard to clear the area and identify the problems.”
