Excited pupils and teachers gathered to watch the official opening of a new pond at Milton Mount Primary School in Pound Hill on May 23.

The Friends of Milton Mount raised £10,000 for the building of the pond. The ribbon was cut by Eleanor Hayton, Sven Buss and Tilly-Bluebell Archer who won the chance to officially open the pond after entering a poster competition. Members of the Friends also ran a barbecue and children were entertained with a bouncy castle and roller disco. Sam Hamilton from the school said “It was a great evening.” td1_9840
