100-year-old village pond makes a splash after restoration

It is now a haven for wildlife and there are spaces for locals to take it all in

A 100-year-old village pond is making waves after a £37,000 project to bring it back to its former glory.

Residents in Great Limber highlighted the pond in their neighbourhood plan as an area that needed a bit of work.

It is now a haven for wildlife and the locals can take it all in with a wooden platform on the water and benches all around it.

Great Limber Parish Council unveiled the space at a special ceremony to celebrate the work that has been done.

It is over 100-years-old.

Councillor Angela Lawrence, vice chairman of West Lindsey District Council, was invited along to the official opening.

She said: “The pond is a focal feature of the village and it really does bring the community together. I

“I would like to commend and thank the parish council who have passionately worked on this for this project.

“I am pleased that our match funding has helped to secure the grants they needed to complete the work.”
