The council continues to work with the Friends of Broomfield and Curtis Wood Ponds on the delivery of the management plan for these two sites. The management plan is based in the CABE space template.
The Friends of group was established in 1994. It has a membership of 150 and represents 48 local households. Each family pays an annual subscription and any funds raised, including grant aid, helps towards running costs and purchasing equipment.
The group meet on a regular basis and carry out tasks to keep the ponds in good condition. These activities have included fixing bird boxes, coppicing, clearing vegetation and clearing rubbish. Other community groups such as the Girl Guides have recently taken part in tidying activities as well as bulb planting.
