friends of millers pond

About

Friends of Millers Pond was formed in 1998 in partnership with Croydon Council.

Our aims are to provide a responsible group of local people whom Croydon Council can consult as representatives of the Millers Pond users; to preserve the natural layout of the Pond and monitor any proposed changes.

A Croydon Councillor regularly attends our meetings and helps us liaise with Croydon Council regarding any problems such as vandalism, security etc.

We have six local meetings per year where the group can discuss various issues, and we meet for monthly work mornings at Millers Pond. (see our Schedule page).


Thank You Friends!

A special thank you goes out to all of our existing and hardworking members past and present. You have made such a difference and Millers Pond would not be what it is today without you.


Friends Remembered

We would like to take this opportunity to remember some very special Friends who have sadly pasted but will never be forgotten. Thank you to all of their time they devoted to Millers Pond.

Jean Glassborow, a valued and regular member of the Friends group. Jean loved and dedicated her time to Millers Pond and was often seen gardening and working extra days with friend Pearl. She also took the local Guides and Brownies on informative tours around the Pond.

Robert Sowter, who often lent a hand with the building projects as well as organising some inspiring and very popular evening Bat Walks around the Pond, where you could actually see and hear the Pipistrelle Bats! Rob also ran two of his own Volunteer groups, Friends of Spring Park Wood and Croydon Coppice and Charcoal.

Alec Stroud, a previous Chairman. Often seen wading through the pond whilst attempting to clear rubbish, which he always did with a smile. He is remembered by a memorial bench which is placed in the park near the main viewing platform.
