Cumnor Conservation Group needs a Pond Manager for the Village Pond. See the contact details on the Cumnor Conservation Group page.

Cumnor 'Fit for the Future'
Connecting people in Cumnor Parish to do stuff - big and little - that promotes wellbeing, biodiversity, sustainability and supports climate initiatives.
What is Cumnor Fit for the Future?
Cumnor 'Fit for the Future' is Cumnor Parish Council's way of bringing together the many different local initiatives and projects that are protecting and enhancing our environment and wellbeing.
For many years, the Cumnor Conservation Group has cared for and protected the Village Pond and The Hurst. Larger projects are ongoing at Longmead Wildlife Site and Hill End. However, we know that as individuals there is much we can do - to increase biodiversity, to become more sustainable and to improve our wellbeing.
Cumnor 'Fit for the Future' aims to connect the big projects to the little projects, and give us a way of starting new projects off.
If you would like to start up a project or get involved in a current project, email us at email@example.com
