Maintenance Work Continuing On North Pond Dunwear 14/01/2024

The bitter cold weather and the risk of frost bite did not deter the hardly souls of the Dunwear ponds management team plus the ever enthusiatic Josh in continuing the up keep and improvements to North pond. They were clearing an area our older members will remember as the island. The island swim was situated in the reed covered area of senior pond just before you get to Tunc and used to be entered by actually going under the pylon. In  its day a prolific peg but sadly it has become lost and overgrown over the years.This work has been carried out to allow more airflow to reach Tunc and the North bank area of the North pond and allow us to manage the environment going forward. The island area is well known as a spawning ground for our senior pond tench and maybe in the future we may reinstall a small stalking/day swim.
