Help ARK create a large wildlife pond in Stonebridge Meadow
ARK (Action for the River Kennet) has launched a Grand Pond Raffle to raise funds for the proposed large wildlife pond in Stonebridge Meadow adjacent to the river Kennet as it flows through the middle of Marlborough.
"A pond in the meadow will add a new habitat for wildlife and will also be a wonderful place for children to learn about all the plants and creatures that inhabit a natural pond" said Anna Forbes, ARK's Grand Pond Raffle organiser.
"Local businesses have been extremely generous and we have over forty prizes, first prize is a £200 voucher for David Dudley, we also have meals for two, family passes for days out and a wide range of other fantastic prizes" she added.
Other major prizes include a day's flyfishing on Marlborough College's two trout ponds, six bottles of champagne donated by Hamptons International and a round of golf for four at Marlborough Golf Club, as well as many other smaller prizes.
The raffle will be drawn next April at ARK's Spring Stonebridge Meadow Day on 29th. This event is open to everyone. The day will have a range of wildlife walks, a children's nature trail and lots of other activities.
Tickets cost £1 each and can be purchased from the Town Council offices at 5 High Street (opposite the Town Hall), or directly from Anna on 01672 511 028
