Sugar Mill Ponds

Due to social Distancing measures put in place by the government we are aware that people are using the ponds to access their daily exercise which is lovely to see the ponds being visited by everyone in the community. To make sure we keep this a safe area that can be continued to be used, the ponds are now NOT accessible by car, only by foot. Please DO NOT travel to the ponds by any vehicle as the gates are now closed until further notice. Access is for walkers only.
We thank you for your cooperation and hope you all stay safe
