Mellors Pond re-opens following improvement works

by Jonathan Kearney

Mellors Pond in Whiston has re-opened following its temporary closure to enable improvement works to take place.

The community facility has benefited from levelling and landscaping works as part of the wider Halsnead Garden Village development.

The community facility is to benefit from 15 new fully accessible fishing pegs, the creation of new areas of wetland habitat and tree planting, along with water quality improvements.

The enhancements will improve the climate change resilience of the site through better drainage and increasing biodiversity through habitat management and creation.
