About Us

Originally a derelict piece of land used for fly tipping, it has taken 3 years of regeneration to introduce the flora, fauna and wildlife pools which have given us what is affectionately referred to today as “the puddle”.

So what is The Puddle Project?

Now for the boring bit, try and stay awake, trust me, it gets better.

A steering committee of local business owners / directors, parish councillors, head teachers, environmentalists and of course the ultimate kill joys being health and safety executives and accountants (yawn) have been assembled and tasked with conscientiously and innovatively developing “the puddle” with the assistance of the local community.

Their objective is to create a self-sustaining social enterprise that can continuously evolve in line with the strategic needs of Warrington Borough Council in bringing physical and mental wellbeing to the local community and provide a rural educational facility for those with special needs.

Now that Mother Nature has had a chance to re-establish the environmental balance it’s time to allow “the puddle” to further evolve and share its wonders with the rest of the world.

Phew, thank goodness that bit is over with, I know it all sounds very formal – but don’t worry, you didn’t honestly think we’d forget about the fun side did you? Let me tell you, we also have a fantastic team of creative interweb peeps, childrens literature authors, illustrators and graphic designers waiting in the wings that are eager to bring to life a very special world of natures characters to engage and educate the younger members of our community whilst dealing with many of the social issues we face.

Oh and if that’s not enough and you can keep a secret, why not keep an eye out for “the puddle” on your telebox thingy……. But remember, you can’t tell anyone, it’s a secret so puddle’s the word!


Protect, Promote and Engage people with the environment, through providing a sustainable and respectful culture, focused on enhancing the well-being of the community.
