Its Tarvin Time!

Home » Newsroom » Its Tarvin Time!

All of us recently had to move our clocks forward 1 hr. Come October we will all have to move them back again.

change clocks

It never ceases to amaze me how many clocks and watches there are around the house. Most are simple to change once you have got them down off the wall.
Others are always a challenge- can you remember how to change the clock on your cooker without the manual? I always seem to spend 10 mins trying to get the oven off Auto in my attempt to find the right button combination ( in the right order as Eric Morecambe would say).
As for the car clock! I could not even find the entry in the index in the Owner's manual. I looked up clock, time, change time. Eventually I stumbled across it- digital clock of course! About 5 levels down on the "infotainment display" and I was there.
Never mind all is about to change in Tarvin Parish.
As you know the Parish Council no longer exists until a new Council is elected in May. Well as a parting gift they decided ( in a closed Council session) to use their powers under the Localism Act and do away with this annual time changing routine. Clocks will in future stay at 2 hrs ahead ie 1 hr ahead of now. We will use a 24hr clock system and stop using am and pm designations. To make it perfectly clear we will annotate all times with TT standing obviously for Tarvin Time. For example 1700 TT.
We will put all entries in our Calendar in this format. No doubt this will cause confusion at first- not least when we attend events outside the Parish and visitors come here. Never mind Tarvin sets the trend and I am sure others will see the benefits and follow us.
The Council were concerned about the change and have asked Tarvinonline to compile any feedback from visitors to the website.
So please email us on

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
