Heath Lane Nursery has set up a new scheme ‘Flower Power’, which will be a community planting area. They will work with people in Willaston who are socially isolated or suffer long term conditions, recommended by Willaston Surgery. There will also be a family area for those who have no garden themselves to grow their own plants.
To enable this to happen, they are seeking volunteers with some gardening knowledge. If you would be interested in getting involved in this exciting new project, please contact Una or Paul on 07478 277477 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
WR&CS is working with other organisations to plan a commemoration weekend to mark 100 years after the end of the First World War. This will include an exhibition and we would like to hear from anyone who had relatives that came from the village and served in WWI. The Festival Society has done significant research about those who served and did not return but we know very little about those who came back to Willaston at the end of the war and what happened to them. If you have any information, please contact Alan Roberts on 0151 327 4600 or email email@example.com.
