James has also
(hopefully) secured funding for bluebell bulbs. Most of these will be planted in
the triangle behind the houses on Shrewbridge Road opposite the willow
copse. This will be the site of a proposed community orchard.
MY congratulations to Mr
Chadwick of Marsh lane
Nantwich in Bloom
whose garden has won an award in the Community Pride and
North West in Bloom garden competition.
I RECENTLY visited Garstang, one
of the most successful small towns in Britain in Bloom.
September 19, their representatives were in Croatia for the results of Entente Florale. Having been shown around the town and experienced their unbounded
enthusiasm I am confident they will do well.
Whilst being shown
the town, we visited their local dairy where Garstang Blue Cheese is made. For
those who like a blue cheese it is very good, but not in my opinion as good as
Nantwich Blue! This is available from both cheese stalls in Nantwich Market.
