Residents may have been concerned at the state of Ashtead Pond where the growth of waterside plants, especially rampant willow has all but hidden the pond from view. It is a well known feature of Ashtead appearing in many old photographs. Mention Ashtead, and everyone remembers the pond.
Councillor Pat Wiltshire (Common Ward) is on the case and has been pressing Mole Valley Council to undertake some vegetation clearance. It now looks as though this might happen this coming Autumn as restrictions relax a little. Let's hope we can get the view of the pond back soon.
