Tarporley Road Improvements
As a rural parish Tarvin has many footpaths bordered by hedges and grass verges that provide pleasant recreational spaces and well used walking routes. However, keeping these clear and open is sometimes a thorny problem involving the rights and responsibilities of landowners, Cheshire West and Cheshire Council and the Parish Council. The issue has occupied the Parish Council on many occasions and they will continue to push for proper maintenance to be carried out on all such footpaths.
On October 7th Councillor Cotgreave and the Clerk met with Ewan McHenry, Localities Manager for CW&C, to look at the problem of the footpath from Brown Heath Farm to Cross Lanes on the east side of Tarporley Road. The path has become seriously overgrown with trees and the hard surface of the path had almost disappeared under the creeping grass verge. There had been some dispute over the ownership of the adjoining bank, but it was accepted that the responsibility lay with CW&C and agreement reached was that the work would be undertaken.
In another aspect of change on Tarporley Road, the Parish Council was told that work was underway to change the speed limit along the road to slow down vehicles passing the new Taylor Wimpey development. Such a change to a highway speed limit is quite a lengthy and legal process so the Parish Council was pleased that a start had been made.

Our latest update from the Tarvin Rex football club begins at the start of October with a sorry tale of a 6-1 defeat against Handbridge Red Bulls — the Rex started very well and actually took the lead in the match with a goal scored by Neil Astbury, but unfortunately Handbridge's home advantage and greater experience shone through and they outplayed Tarvin for the majority of the rest of the...
