You might have noticed that there has been some earth removal work going on in Jubilee Wood.
TWiG has most recently employed a contractor to remove some of the topsoil to provide the perfect balance for seeding with wildflowers.
Perennial woodland wildflowers, together with a nurse crop of cornfield annuals, were sown by TWiG volunteers last week.
The woodland wildflower mix will not come into flower until the summer of 2019, but the cornfield annuals will produce a brilliant display of flowers this coming summer.

For newcomers to the village, the planting of Jubilee Wood was an initiative, led by Tattenhall Wildlife Group (TWiG), which resulted in 1200 trees being planted in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee in 2012. The trees were donated by the Woodland Trust, the Bolesworth Estate and Cheshire West and Chester Council and planting took place over a number of weekends between late November 2011 and early 2012. Local resident 'Reg Hewitt' was charged with planting the 'Royal Sapling' and members of the community, including the local primary school, created a lasting historical and environmental legacy. 'Jubilee Wood' was officially opened on Saturday 2 June 2012 by Katherine Dewar, the Chester schoolgirl who designed the Diamond Jubilee emblem.
