Members of Tarvin Meeting Point enjoyed their Christmas party last night (Dec 10th) and in keeping with the group's traditions, met at the home of one of their members. As well as excellent food and drink, the group enjoyed a surprisingly tense session of bingo, and a true/false story-telling session. Who would have guessed that members had lead such interesting lives, or had such well-developed skills of 'fibbing'.

Tarvin Meeting Point started in February 1969 as Tarvin Housewives Register and although none of the original members remain, there are a number of current members whose connections with the group go back to the early 1970's. In 1987 the organisation changed its name to the National Women's Register and four years ago the Tarvin group left to become an independent group. The format of Tarvin Meeting Point however continues the long history of NHR/NWR, it is a group of women who are interested in everything and talk about anything. Meeting fortnightly in members' homes and creating material for meetings themselves, the members of Tarvin Meeting Point have never run out of topics to discuss. The last meeting before the party looked at earlier mass migrations of people, discussing the causes, problems and outcomes of the great movements of people throughout history.

Though the original members of National Housewives Register tended to be 'stay at home Mums', more recent recruits have been somewhat older, perhaps at the end of a busy working life. If you would like to find out more about the Tarvin group, please call Sue on 018289 741962. Or go to www.nwr.org.uk to find out more about the national organisation.

Travellers of all kinds have used Platts Lane for thousands of years. On foot was the major form of passage but also on horseback, on small carts or in carriages, as well as packhorses and farm animals.In recent times it was even proposed to build a road through this historic place. How could a council imagine this was a good idea?Thankfully, it remains a quiet by-way for walkers, cyclists...
