Road Junction update
As part of the planning permission granted to Taylor Wimpey there was an agreement that they would allocate an amount of money for the improvement of two of the main village road junctions — where Tarporley Road meets the A51 and where the Lower High Street meets the A54. Work has been carried out but the Parish Council still has some concerns

The changes made to the Tarporley Road/A51 junction were intended to improve a situation where there was no obvious priority, where drivers were often uncertain where to position their cars and where the right of way was unclear. The solution, however, to hold back traffic turning right into the village, has created the unintended problem of poor sight-lines for traffic leaving the village and turning right
Cheshire West and Chester Council engineers who attended a site meeting recently agreed to add extra hatching to the road surface to force drivers turning into the village to keep well over to the left. It is hoped that this will give drivers turning right out of the village plenty of space to ensure that they can see oncoming traffic. The Parish Council is not convinced that this will work and sincerely hopes that the junction causes no accidents. They intend to keep a watching brief and would like residents to report any difficulties encountered

Minor changes have been made to the Lower High Street/A54 junction but the Parish Council was disappointed that it had not been widened to ease the waiting time for vehicles turning left. It appears that the junction area is home to a number of other pipes and cables that would have had to be moved to make the road wider. The cost of moving these was more than the budget allocated.

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...
