Why not join us, we meet the first and third Sunday of every month, weather permitting. There are a range of jobs you can get involved with from simply cleaning up litter to eco cleaning of the Sud Brook as well as planting bulbs and assisting with wildlife recording.

You get to make new friends, talk to locals and work with the Council, Police and Fire Service who all regularly visit the pond and nature reserve for one reason or another. It’s always a fun day out, we have a laugh and have over the past twenty years made a BIG difference to the pond and surrounding area turning it into a recognised nature reserve.

Last year, our efforts were rewarded by gaining the coveted Green Flag Award for raising the standard of the ajoining park and surrounding green space. To find out more about what volunteering entails you can either call Ken on 07541 920229, or email our organisation secretary, Will Apperley for details secretary@fosp.org.uk

Alternatively, just show up any first or third Sunday of the month at the Saintbridge Pond, and you’ll find us spread around the pond undertaking various jobs, ask us any questions you like, you can even roll up your sleeves and you’ll welcome to join in. You’ll be briefed by one of senior team on the work we do and how it is best done.

Older children are welcome to join in as long as they are accompanied and fully supervised by parents, but because of the dangers of water and drowning younger children cannot be involved and we are sure you understand for safety reasons we retain the right to refuse younger children access for their own safety.

We look forward to maybe seeing you around the pond some day soon, even if it is just for a wander round, see what we’re doing, and if your tempted to join in you’ll be most welcome. The FOSP team comprise of people from all walks of life, communities all coming together for the betterment of Saintbridge Pond, its inhabitants and the surrounding park and green space.


Please help us maintain the pond and surrounding area by making a donation to help fund the work we do as volunteers. You’ll be helping us with your donation, 100% of funds received go to the work we do in conservation.[paypal_donation_button]
