and Crewe Fire Cadets answered a call out to attend to flowering baskets and
Nantwich Museum's planters (right) on June 1.
The Cadets' officers had volunteered
the youngsters' services and it was also an opportunity to present a cheque for
£50, raised by the young people through
supermarket bag packing among other ways.
After posing for the picture
above, the cadets split into two groups. One hung pre-planted flowering baskets
in Pepper Street, while the other took more baskets to Nantwich Railway Station
- even if some
of them did think for a while that their destination was Nantwich
FIRE Station. A misunderstanding of the comment: "These are for the station."
Then it was on to Nantwich Museum
to put more plants in the planters outside the museum (centre.
The whole operation was
co-ordinated by Nantwich in Bloom Chairman, Doug Butterill assisted by
members of the committee.
