TULLIBODY Delph Pond Forum held its annual spring biodiversity event at the pond on Saturday as dozens of families turned out to take part in the festivities.

PC Laura Conner, Policy Wildlife Officer with Central Scotland Police shared her wildlife exhibits and brought along Larry the lamb who proved to be the star attraction as everyone wanted to hold him and get their photo taken.

There was also an informative element to the day’s proceedings as Jo McNally and her team from Hebees Community Bee Keepers gave an interactive lesson on bees and how important they are to the planet’s biodiversity and wider world.

Pauline McNaughton of Party Face Painting was also on hand to cheer everyone up up with her beautiful designs with most people wanting in on the action.

Doris Vasse made sure that all the hard working litter pickers were fed and watered with her selection of fruits and refreshments as a thank you for their wonderful efforts.

Hazel Musk, chair of the Delph Pond Forum, told the Advertiser that these events are vital in order for the area to thrive.

She said: “The area around the Delph Pond needs these clean ups to ensure that wildlife can continue to thrive and the pond is enjoyed by the local community.

“A big thank you to all the volunteers who turned out to support the event despite the wet weather.”
