Time again for a pond?

I have visited many villages throughout the UK and was struck by how many actually feature a village pond.

Some of those villages or hamlets are much smaller than Audlem, nearby Hankelow being an example.

Aside from the great biodiversity a pond can bring to a village, when many in this region have been drained, they can also act as a focal point and help build community spirit.

Audlem used to have a designated pond. Is this something the village would consider re-instating? I for one would certainly welcome it as a community amenity and habitat aid when current times are seeing wildlife being put under more and more pressure.
