Lakeside Copse

To remember all those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic

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 as a small copse by Nantwich Lake as a commemorative copse.

Following agreement with Cheshire East of the proposed location, a small Nantwich in Bloom working party met at Coed Wen on 1st December and dug up 22 self-sown tree saplings, a mix of native trees including oak, rowan, cherry and hazel and replanted them to make a small copse in an area next to two existing alder trees adjacent to the lakeside footpath.

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.

Please send your suggestions, with a reason why you selected your name, by completing the form below or send an email to ntc.marketing@nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk
