The ‘Pride of the Bay’ crew visited Big Mead Pond on Tuesday night to give the home for fish, ducks and other creatures a little bit of tender loving care.
Shanklin’s fire crew set to work to aerate the water in a bid to improve the oxygen levels and water quality. It comes after some resident fish were found to have perished.
The retained team will be returning soon to repeat the process as part of their work in the local community.
2 years ago the pond had to have similar treatment when an algae was discovered.
