|Close to the hedge: the Omega Pond team.|
Thirteen volunteers and residents spent three days laying a hundred metres of hedge at Omega Pond.
The event was the second organised on the site and is part of a project to encourage more wildlife into the green spaces of the town by providing shelter and food for birds, mammals and insects. A volunteer day in October created wildflower areas around the pond.
The site, which is owned by Hambleton, District Council, is open to the public.
