HERE'S a quick
update from the Riverside Project.
Nantwich Lake Area
from new seating provided by Nantwich Town Council and a grant
from the Rights of Way team earlier this year, work is currently
under way on a circular path round the lake to tie everything

Nantwich Mill / Mill Island Area
installation of the new bridge earlier this year,
works are now
under way on tidying up the Mill Bridge area - the main entrance
to the island. These involve remedial works and the upgrading
of the bridge area to make it safe and fit for purpose. We also
hope it will look quite nice once finished.
we hope to do something much more exciting with this site to
provide for the future. Watch this space.
quite frightening but we are shortly to be consulting with all
and sundry on the plan for the Riverside area in the
future. This plan/plans will outline all the ideas and potential
for this wonderful area of ours.
AS we have
done in the past, we are holding an event on Sunday, October 12,
12noon to 4pm, at the Shrewbridge Road car park area. BBC
Radio Stoke will be there with their gardening programme and
nostalgia hour, so itís an opportunity to make your voice heard
on the airwaves. We will be running activities on the day,
including planting out, preparing wildflower meadow areas and
willow weaving. So come and join us.
