Bryer Pond - Blue Lagoon

From the BEO Estate Wide News email:

The Mystery of the Blue Pond

Have you wondered why Bryer Court pond has turned blue? The solution was revealed to members of the Garden Advisory Group at their quarterly meeting earlier this month. Extensive growth of blanket weed had become a problem and a harmless vegetable dye has been put in the pond to filter the sunlight and so prevent the weed photosynthesising. The dye has been used in the lakes for some years but is more noticeable in the pond.
