Littleport – Peacocks Meadow – Update Sept 2023


Since the Open Day, Peacocks Meadow in Littleport is about to start building its eagerly awaited eco-pond thanks to a Pride of Place grant from East Cambridgeshire District Council.

The community garden has been awarded £13,414 towards the cost of building the 15 metre pond which will boost the environment for a broad range of aquatic invertebrates, pollinating insects, birds and mammals.

As well as boosting biodiversity, the pond will bring interest and pleasure to the 100s of visitors to Peacock’s Meadow and become a learning resource for youth clubs, Scouts, Guides, pre-schools, early years groups and organisations which support disabled children.

It will also help counteract the catastrophic loss of natural ponds in Cambridgeshire, which have declined 95% in 40 years.

This event took place in September 2023:-

Sunday 17 September 2023 at 2-4 pm at Limes Cl, Littleport, Ely CB6 1QQ. The Friends of the Woodland Garden manage Peacocks Meadow, a community woodland garden in the heart of Littleport. Creating an accessible, tranquil sanctuary for all.
