PUPILS of St Anne's Primary School, Nantwich, indulged in a little pond dipping in April in the pursuit of aquatic wildlife.

   The Nantwich Riverside Wildlife Pond is the home of creatures such as pond skaters, three-spined sticklebacks and common frogs. And in the adjacent meadows one of the plants to be seen at the right time of the year is the vivid blue cornflowers.

   To help visitors to the pond to know what they are looking for, the pupils produced some drawings (left) which were incorporated into the information on the sign (right) which stands at the edge of the pond.

   The information includes such items as explaining how pond skaters walk on the surface of the water. 

   The pond is used by all primary schools in Nantwich for discovering more about the wildlife.

   To visit the pond, make for the Shrewbridge Road car park opposite Brookfield House and Nantwich Town Council's Brookfield Hall. Head away from the road, round some trees towards the river.   


The sign and work on the pond has been sponsored by Nantwich Light Haulage (NLH) Express Deliveries Ltd.

   Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC - who are behind the project - are grateful to NLH for their support.
