Pond beauty spot freshened up

Have your say

Friends of Tickhill Mill Dam teamed up with Doncaster Council for a two day environmental clean-up.

A deep-cleanse of the area included replacing missing stones setts, cleaning and treating the wooden benches and handrails as well as repainting the metal railings around the pond.

The area team also got stuck into weeding around footpaths.

Coun Cynthia Ransome, Doncaster Council cabinet member for communities and Street Scene, said: “The Friends of Tickhill Mill Dam are just one great example of Doncaster’s many hardworking groups of volunteers, who have taken on some of the responsibility for looking after a much-loved part of their community.

“They have recognised that they can make a very real difference.

“I hope that they will inspire others to work with the council to improve areas which are there for us all to enjoy.”
