Refurbishment of Fairfield Pond
Thanks to generous grants from Essex County Council CIF and Essex Heritage Trust, Fairfield Pond will be renovated next month. Works will be undertaken by Anglia Land Drainage to remove the silt, build up the banks, remove some of the willows and nettlebeds and restore the site to its former glory. During the works, any fish in the pond will be removed off site and all care and attention will be given to flora and fauna in the area. The security fencing will remain on site until the silt is dried and sown with grass seed. The Parish Council will then install new picnic benches, seating, bins and an information board in the area. The length of the works is weather dependent but it is anticipated to last 3-4 weeks.
Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council have created a questionnaire to gain an insight into what is important to residents and therefore shape budgetary planning in the future. It would be great if you could take the time to complete the online questionnaire by clicking on this link below:
Paper copies of the questionnaire will be distributed with the Parish Newsletter which will be delivered at the beginning of next month. Copies are also available at the Parish Office, 118 High Street or at Ingatestone Wines, 40 High Street. You can also deliver your completed copies to these two locations too.
Please take part in the questionnaire and help shape Ingatestone and Fryerning in the future.
Closing date for online and paper responses is the 31st August 2016
