Village ponds

Working with the Countryside Rangers from Waverley Borough Council, Cranleigh in Bloom helped to improve the three village ponds on Cranleigh Common.

We assisted with volunteer working parties which focused on removing willow from the ponds.

Due to the presence of Great Crested Newts in all three ponds, we worked carefully from the banks of each pond to avoid disturbing this protected species.
