1, The Pond was dug out because it was leaking into the Hamlet.
2. The fish were caught and removed by the Environment agency.
They were transfered to one of their holding Ponds while the dam was repaired but they lost them when the pond silted over.( Including the Lovley ghosties )
3, Mr Gibbon was not responable for restocking the pond the way it is now,that was done at the request of the Members,who were fed up of catching Perch all the time.
