EXCITING NEWS :

Pond restocking - We have introduced 10 breeding pairs of Tench (April 16'th).

These will take a while settling in but should be a welcome addition to the pond.

Shortly to be introduced : CRUCIAN CARP.

In the next few weeks to months we will be introducing 100, 4 to 6 inch (10 to 15 cm) CRUCIAN CARP. These are pure bred English fish and are a lovely butter gold colour. They feed both bottom and mid water, they are very shy feeders and small baits will be a must if you want to grace your net with one. They can grow in excess of 4 lbs in weight.

The pond offers quiet country walks round the recently completed bank side path for walkers,

push chairs and dog walkers, together with quiet Fishing for many native fish species. 

The pond draws members and visitors not only from the local areas of Wilford Village, Compton Acres,

West Bridgford, Clifton and the Meadows, but because of the convenient location close to many

amenities, many visitors to the area from all over the East Midlands and beyond.

The Iremongers Pond Association is the management group for the pond and was formed in November 2007

and has in that time has won many  Awards. It is staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers from all the

surrounding areas of Nottingham. Associate membership is available for people who just want to support

these activities as help is always needed to maintain the environment for fishing, wildlife and visitors.

Now that the construction of the Tram is complete and the Pond has been returned to us, we are working hard to return it to former glory.

We can now provide access for most pushchairs and wheelchairs from the South Western corner, very close to the previous access point, closest corner to the new tram stop and the Ferry Inn.

All of the paths have been cleared but can be a little difficult during times of high water levels and the pond can again be appreciated from the paths all the way around.

The benches have been relocated to the North Eastern corner, along with a tree lined grass area suitable for picnics.

We are endeavouring to improve facilities round the pond all the time and we now have 4 large bins located approximately at each corner.

We regularly organise volunteer "Clean-up days" and suggestions, comments or notice of any problems are always appreciated, either by emailing us  at:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or in an emergency, contact numbers can be found on several notices around the area, usually located in pond side trees.

Please remember, this is a voluntary organisation with very limited funds and any help  will be eagerly received.

Keep an eye out for future improvements both to the pond and website, including a new and improved gallery.
