WILMSLOW Town Council has joined the new Lindow Moss Landscape Partnership as a ‘friends’ group is launched in support of the much-loved local landscape.

The partnership is a collective of community organisations, landowners, relevant local authorities, academics and charitable organisations.

They are committed to conserving, restoring and interpreting the landscape as a Local Nature Improvement Area.

The Lindow Moss wider landscape and the other large natural landscapes in Wilmslow, including the river valleys, heathlands and mire habitats at Lindow Common, are complex ecosystems in which wildlife has adapted to live over hundreds of years. Town council vice chair Jon Kelly has been appointed as its representative on the partnership’s steering group.

He said: “Lindow Moss is an important part of Wilmslow. During Covid, it provided a real lifesaver for people to get out into the countryside.

“If members of the community would like to get involved and contribute to the future of Lindow Moss, Transition Wilmslow are launching a group called Friends of Lindow Moss.”

More than 90 people attended the first meeting of the Friends of Lindow Moss in early February. They discussed how local people can help influence the area’s future.
