Parking rant

Dear Reader

I can only apologise for the following article which I would agree is somewhat of a rant!

You will have read on Tarvinonline only this week that work had started to up-date the bus stops on Tarvin High St and Church St. This essential work was provided and paid for by CWaC with the purpose of improving services for Bus Passengers and Pedestrians as the existing pavement was without a kerb and cars were being parked on the pavement restricting the passageway for pedestrians and disabled alike.

Now for the rant — this morning (Saturday 14th March) at 9.30am two cars were parked on the newly kerbed pavement as shown in this photo!!

Why do they need to park cars on a pavement? Do these drivers need a big sign to tell them to park on the road, or, do we need to get the police involved?

I'm sure you could come up with suitable answers to these questions but this is a family website.

Please, please car drivers park on the road and leave the pavements for pedestrians.

There, rant over

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...
