Green Flag Inspection

Green Flag May 2010

In May, inspectors from the Green Flag award scheme surveyed the whole of the Wom Brook Walk from Rushford Bridge, close to where the Brook enters Wombourne in the east, to where it leaves the village in the west, at the edge of Poolhouse.

This formed part of the annual inspection process, and it is hoped that the village should learn soon the result of that inspection.

Rhino Mania!


This multi-coloured fibreglass model of a rhino would be an unlikely sight at the best of times, but the city of Chester has in the region of 60 + models located in and around the city.

Rhino Mania‘ is an interesting initiative which not only brings an endangered species to  prominence, but engages local groups in an engaging art project. Could a similar event be staged within Wombourne to promote the plight of the water vole?
