Garden ponds

garden pond

Garden ponds can be dangerous.

I have a concrete curved pond – 430cm x 280cm approximately at widest parts in the corner of a small North London garden. The ground around slopes upwards to fences and lawn. With the advent of a toddler in the family, I want it broken up, removed, & remaining ground left with necessary drainage, soil, turf/seed, & the slope managed, probably with existing rocks from an old rockery.
Any advice on how how to proceed ?

An emergency service operator has been recognised in the first BBC 999 Awards for saving the life of a one-year-old child.

Milo Jelly had fallen into a garden pond at his home in Lincolnshire when his father Andrew’s back was turned. Mr Jelly called 999 in panic and spoke to Lisa Harrison at the East Midlands Ambulance Service.

Building a city

These are truly fascinating images. The buildings look as if they were made to last an eternity. What a pity so many have disappeared. Many of the buildings in London look very similar.Lot’s of stone buildings. Facing the new world the Atlantic, you can see where the inspiration came. Both cities linked via the trans-Atlantic liner trade. When you stand and gaze at the old buildings in London, momentarily you can feel connected with turn of the century America and all the optimism it held.
