Duckers Well Sign

The small area off Church Street know as Duckers Well is a small, modest, but important piece of Tarvin's history. Much of the work to clear the site of the old garage was completed by local volunteers and the Parish Council were delighted to pay for an interpretation panel to be erected.

In October last year an agreement was made with the Gardening Society that they would look after the planting in the Well area and a recent site meeting was held to decide future work. After the area was weeded and tidied, an inspection of the ground was carried out. Though some parts of the planting are growing well, some concern was raised about the apparent erosion of the rear bed and the impact it might have on the neighbouring property. A planting and pruning scheme will be started that should help, and regular site visits to ensure that everything remains stable.

The Gardening Society have also taken over responsibility for the two flowerbeds on either side of the entrance to well Cottages, opposite the Post Office. These two small areas add to the general visual pleasure of the High Street and the work of the Gardening Society is much appreciated.
