Eco logs – the finishing touch


Four eco logs have been placed on two sides of the renovated pond by Wilmslow Leisure Centre. Two are hornbeam, one is beech and the fourth is sweet chestnut.

Two years ago the pond area was cleared, mainly by volunteers and then replanted in February 2017. As a result this year the pond has been brightened up with marsh marigolds, primroses and cowslips followed by flag iris and become home to a pair of moorhen.

Ruth McNulty, Chair of Wilmslow Partnership, who managed the renovation said "The four eco logs complete the last step of renovation. They are there both to attract wild-life on the one hand but also to offer entertainment for children tempted to climb or adults in need of a brief resting place."

Renovations have been completed through grant funding and by extensive use of volunteer labour.

A wonderful asset and so near the town centre. IF only our trusty volunteers could get hold of the old coach house in the adjacient carpark. CEC said they had let it to a builder from Stockport last year. Nothing has happened, other than it falls further into decay. .
You have got to be suspicious.

IMO If no takers occupy within 12 months, the Contract reverts to CEC, who must offer it to Town/Parish Council on same terms, with the lower Council being able to reject the offer after Stat Consultation period.

The lease for the Old Stables was signed 4 June. I do not know the identity of the tenant.
The subject of the above article is the success of the renovation of the pond so hopefully this thread will now revert to that subject.

Perhaps the Ward Councillor could make his business to find out who has the lease and let the people of the town know?

This thread is about the eco-logs and the renovated carters pond.
For those who persist in diverting to the old stables may I say that I have asked Assets for the name of the tenants and have been told that this is commercially confidential information and not available to me.
Now, back to the eco-logs.
