Pupils plant trees in St Anne's Wood

 

AFTER the ceremony in Nantwich Riverside, the Mayor moved on to Coed Wen, the area of land across the road from the River Weaver being converted into a woodland area with the help of local schoolchildren.

   Accompanied by teachers, a large party of St Anne's pupils each planted a tree - mainly oak tree saplings - in an area of Coed Wen to be called St Anne's Wood.

   The Mayor was also shown an area created for the local insect life - grass-filled plastic pipes to help them weather the winter. 

   Pupils of Weaver Primary School had previously planted oak and others tree saplings in an area to be known as Weaver Wood.
