| A rumour
recently has started around the village regarding a proposed expansion
to Wear Pond. This rumour I believe has come from some obscure EU
Regulation that caters for the welfare of birds and, in particular, migrating
You may have noticed recently there have been a few more ducks on other birds
using the pond. Well so have some bureaucrats in EU.
Their studies show, so it is said, that the projected use of the pond
by migrating birds will cause major congestion around it. It is
conjectured that the increase in birds/ducks or geese wishing to use the pond
will increase to such an extent that in-flight landing collisions
will considered normal, resulting in the pond being littered with debris of
these landing accidents.
The projected solution is expand and redevelop the pond so that it can
accommodate more traffic. The expansion will result in the doubling of
the size of the pond with many of the beautiful Willow trees being
removed to clear the landing paths for the birds. (See picture on
welcome page, this could all be gone if the plans go ahead). So!
