Parish Plan

In the budget for 2016 Tarvin Parish Council allocated £2,900 to be given to local organisations in the form of grants. On Monday evening the following grants were approved;
Tarvin Community Woodland Trust — £1,000
Tarvin Community Centre — £1,000
1st Tarvin Scouts — £400
Tarvin Village Fete — £200
Christmas Festival — £150
The eagle eyed among you will realise that this does not add up to £2,900 but only £2,750. This means that there is still £150 still in the budget. If there is any local organisation that feels it could benefit from this money to support their involvement with local people then please do contact the Clerk, Mike Hassall, on 01829 741075 or on
