Ruislip Residents' Association

Manor Farm Pond

On 5 October Friends of Pinn Meadows volunteers joined Countryside and Wildlife Officer Dragana Knezevic and Hillingdon Council Parks Officers to help out with clearing undergrowth and rubbish from around Manor Farm Pond as part of the RRA and Conservation Panel supported initiative to set up a regular maintenance programme for this feature.  Passing residents generally expressed their appreciation.  The eventual programme will be subject to further discussions.

Further work is planned to ensure the safety of trees surrounding the Pond as soon as Council resources are available.  The willow tree which fell in the Pond as a result of recent high winds will be dealt with as soon as possible, but priority is being given to other fallen trees that are causing obstructions or threatening property.  The Gazette is running an on-line poll asking readers “Should local authorities spend more money on checking trees that might be at risk in high winds?”
