Harry Kelsey Leicester Pond Maintenance Consultant

Harry Kelsey - Pond Background

Harry Kelsey

Harry Kelsey runs the Leicestershire pond maintenance branch for Head Squared Aquatics. He has been working with us since 2013 and became a franchisee in 2015 taking over responsibility for our pond maintenance contracts in and around Leicestershire.

Personal Statement

I have been working in the aquatic and gardening industry since 2011 and have maintained a strong interest in the hobby for many years before that. With my family, I helped construct a garden pond and stream when I was younger and since then have been fascinated by the nature, wildlife and whole ecosystem that is provided to you.

Currently I am running my own 600 litre tropical freshwater aquarium, which is housing a range of large South American fish. In my spare time I am designing a second self­sustained, planted invertebrate aquarium which I hope to commission shortly.
