Just as the weather has warmed up and the pond becomes an attraction in the Town Park, Trowbridge Town Council’s Neighbourhood Services Team have had to deal with recent vandalism to the pond’s running gear –  the electrics powering the pump which adds water. Despite fencing off the area under the bridge, unfortunately someone has dug out the ground to enter beneath the fence and proceeded to damage the electrics to the pond. Quotations have been asked for to deal with the access issue, before arranging repair to the electrics in order to minimise any risk to the public.

Unfortunately, this means that it could be between three and four weeks until the pump is restored.
