AFTER trading in the Nantwich area for 25 years, estate agents Baker Wynne and Wilson of Pepper Street donated 25,000 to local voluntary groups in 2017.

    Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC applied for 970 to buy wild flower bulbs and were successful. With the money they bought 500 each of bluebells, wood anemone, wild daffodil

 

snowdrops, wild garlic and snakes head fritillaries. These were planted in Nantwich Riverside with help from Weaver Primary School, Pear Tree Primary School, Millfields Primary School and St Anne's Catholic Primary School, all in Nantwich, together with the Millfields (7th South West Cheshire) Scouts and Cubs.
