DOUG Butterill, Chairman of Nantwich in Bloom Committee, writes: Weaver School pupils have planted a small copse at Coed Wen - the most southerly point of Nantwich Riverside - in conjunction with James Thompson (Nantwich Riverside Project Manager, Cheshire East Council) and Nantwich in Bloom. 

  Underplanting was carried out with primroses, cowslips, bluebells, red campion, ragged robin, greater spearwort, meadow buttercup and teazle. Many of the plants were grown from seed by the pupils and Nantwich in Bloom.
   It is believed that the primroses are the only ones growing wild in Nantwich!
   The other photos show red campion and ragged robin (both pink) and white greater spearwort.
