Hardwick Village Plan

A Village plan sets out how the community wants to develop in the future, what it needs and the steps needed to make things happen.

Hardwick Village Pond – Asset or Eyesore?

May 11th, 2016

Asset or Liability?

A few years ago, the village pond benefited from some local residents taking an interest in cleaning it out and sprucing up its surroundings.  Since then, it has again languished with the water level often dropping during the warmer months, lots of blanket weed and algae clogging the water and some litter accumulating as well.

The pond is hemmed in between the road on one side and the adjacent field hedge such that it would be difficult to make more of it unless some additional land was available.

On a pleasant summer day, it seems a shame that it isn’t possible to buy a drink from the Blue Lion and sit beside the pond watching ducks, moor hens and other pond life going about their business.
