To remember all those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic
Nantwich in Bloom have continued working in the town during the pandemic to ensure it looks as attractive as ever.
One project they have embarked on over the past few months has been the planting of some tree saplings at the lake.
In autumn 2020 Doug Butterill, ex Chair of Nantwich in Bloom, suggested that some self-sown tree saplings could be removed from Coed Wen and replanted by Nantwich Lake as a commemorative copse.
Following agreement with Cheshire East of 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 have been replanted make a small copse, in an area next to two existing alder trees adjacent to the lakeside footpath.
Some of these saplings have established and now the team would like this area to become a commemorate copse for all those who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. Further saplings will be planted next winter.
We need you
The intention is to commemorate all those local residents affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. A plaque, kindly donated by Nantwich Partnership, will be erected next to the copse to say:
‘(chosen name) Copse 2021’
Remembering the Nantwich community affected by Coronavirus
However, we need a suitable name for the copse, and this is where you come in. We would like to hear your suggestions. All entries will be reviewed by the Nantwich In Bloom Committee with a vote on the favourite.
