Newtown Village Pond

In 2016/17, Dave provided advice to a small community in Newtown, on the Solway Plain, in restoring the village pond and creating an attractive wetland feature with seating and interpretation panel. The pond had become overgrown and silted up and, with the help of a grant from the Solway Wetlands Partnership, it was dredged and extended to create more open water and safer nesting sites for wetland birds, such as coot and mallard.
