Pete the Pond is the man from Willingdon fighting a battle with Wealden District Council over his garden.

Now he wants the public to donate money to help him.

He needs to raise £1500 to ‘help with legal fees in our fight against the Council.’

Peter Birchall has a garden full of ponds, flowers and rare pond plants.

On March 3, Peter was told by Wealden District Council to remove all the features in his back garden by the end of the month because the council sees it as a ‘commercial enterprise’.

The story has gone viral.

Now he has set up a fundraising page.
