Our Pond Project
Liberty Training, Kent Mentor Support and St Anthony's School helped us design and build a raised pond partially on the land Optivo helped to clear. All visited us and had a budget to work with to buy the resources to make the pond. Julie Wickers from Tesco helped to choose the best idea. We were able to fund this project with the help of the young people involved and build the pond with their help. They learnt new skills, measuring, sawing and working as part of a team. We now have resident newts and insects.
