NANTWICH in Bloom continued working in the town during the Coronavirus pandemic to ensure it looks as attractive as ever. One project they embarked on was the planting of some tree saplings by the lake off Shrewbridge Road.

  Honorary Alderman Doug Butterill, former Chairman of Nantwich in Bloom, suggested that some self-sown tree saplings could be removed from Coed Wen Community Woodland in Shrewbridge Road (the road to Whitchurch) and be replanted across the road by Nantwich Lake in a commemorative copse.

   Following agreement with Cheshire East Council on the proposed location, Nantwich in Bloom volunteers met at Coed Wen and dug up 22 self-sown tree saplings. A mix of native trees including oak, rowan, cherry and hazel were removed and were replanted to make a small copse in an area next to two existing alder trees adjacent to the lakeside footpath.

   Unfortunately, many of the saplings that were planted in 2021 did not survive flooding and periods of drought. Nantwich in Bloom volunteers have now transplanted many more tree saplings from Coed Wen into the copse in the hope of a higher establishment rate.

   As the pandemic recedes they hope it will be a more opportune time to revisit the naming of the copse to commemorate all the local residents who were affected by the coronavirus

   A plaque donated by Nantwich Partnership will be installed in the area and will be , inscribed “Remembering the Nantwich community affected by coronavirus”. Local residents have been asked to put forward suitable names for the copse. Ideas, along with name and address contact details, can be

 o handed in at Nantwich Town Council offices at the Civic Hall in Market Street;

o e-mailed to ntc.marketing@nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk; or

o submitted online to www.nantwichinbloom.org
