A very generous gift was made to Richmond Village Nantwich
recently as resident Miss Avice Hunt arranged for a van full of plants to be
delivered for the Village pond.
Miss Hunt, a keen gardener remarked “The pond is a lovely area
but I thought it needed some more plants so I contacted local business Ripples
who have helped me to choose the right ones to ensure that it will look even
The plants were delivered on a very wet day but nothing
could dampen Miss Hunt’s spirits as she handed them over to Head Gardener
Jonathan Basford. The pond, already home to a number of fish has also acted as
a nursery ground for a mother duck and her ducklings. Remarked Jonathan “The
pond is now a perfect home for them, as is the weather!”.
