Pupils of Weaver C.P. School dressed in green for their Green Day. Pictured with them are Doug Butterill (Company Secretary of Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC, left) and James Thompson (Executive Director).

NESTING boxes were put up on trees at Weaver County Primary School, Nantwich, on July 9, when the pupils dressed in green to mark a Green Day. The event was in support of Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC which had just become a company.

   The boxes had been produced by students of the Countryside Department of Reaseheath College just outside Nantwich - the main supporter of the

 

successor organisation to Nantwich Riverside Project.

   Although each pupil is holding a box for the picture, two were put up in the copse at the school with the rest going to other schools and Nantwich Riverside later. The pupils will be watching closely to see which birds take up residence in the new boxes.

   Crewe and Nantwich M.P., Edward Timpson, dropped in at the school to support the Green Day,

 

and chatted to the pupils about what birds they might expect to see.

   James Thompson later called in at Malbank School in Nantwich where staff and pupils have also offered support for Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC, and Doug Butterill was due to visit Acton C.P. School.
