Spa Ponds, (Gara Ponds) Forest Town

Conservation work in the late 1900s

By P M & MM

Photos from the Museums Chad Negatives, which are undated

They show the late Cllr Kath Tait (in the red coat) and possibly other people associated with nature conservation, at Spa Ponds, often known as Gara Ponds, Forest Town. Additionally volunteers are taking a rest while the photos are taken 

While conservation work is obviously taking place as can be seen by looking closely at the pictures, the reason for the photos being taken is a complete mystery. Had funding for the conservation work been given by Mansfield District Council, or Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust? and who are the other people in the photos?
