In the item entitled, "Tarvin Unsung Heroes: Bryan Evans", that appeared in TarvinOnLine on Tuesday 6th September 2016, you were asked to see if you could find the inscribed glazed stone that gives the year in which the building of the splendid sandstone wall alongside Mount Pleasant on Tarporley Road took place. It seems that it was done as a part of a road-widening scheme which occurred in 1938 and one of the builders has left us this dated stone as a memento.
When you were up at Austins Hill (perhaps on the Celebration Walk?), you might also have noticed that there is a fine new litter bin there. Knowing how long it can take for local Councils to get things done, I contacted our Council, Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council (CWaC) to ask them to put a dog bin there for the walkers who will use the new woodland. The time that elapsed between the first email enquiry and the time that it had been installed was a period of just a fortnight! The Council don't always get a good press but, in the case of our new bin, I have nothing but the highest praise for them.
Good old CWaC — keep it up!
