During a year, Tarvin Methodist Church plays host to many groups doing some vital fundraising by running a coffee morning. The woodland is no exception and our coffee morning will be at 10.00am on Saturday 21st October 2017. Most of the costs of maintaining our woodland are paid for out of fundraising and, with our May Plant Sale, this one of the two most important parts of that. However, as well as offering the usual coffee, biscuits, cake and the inevitable raffle, there is another purpose of the morning: we want to enable the community to meet the woodlanders; those folk entrusted with the job of looking after the woodland on behalf of the village.
And what a raft of topics there are to discuss! Since the Plant Sale in May (the other occasion during which Trustees make themselves available to chat to folk in the village about woodland matters), a great deal has happened and a quick list includes:-
* The installation of our storage container.
* The management of the Saxon Heath section of the woodland.
* Work done on the woodland fences.
* The success of our new ride-on mower.
* Wild flowers in the woodland.
* Management of our trees.
* The Jim Grogan Countryside & Wildlife Award — and this year's winner: Annabel Thorp.
* Our work with the school.
* Our newsletter- its delivery, content and usefulness.
No one is likely to run out of things to say! So, if you care about our woodland, if you would like to help us to raise the funds we need to maintain it properly or if there is an issue (or issues) that you would like to talk through with Trustees, then 10.00am next Saturday is the time and the Chapel on High Street is the place for you!
DO come and join us. Your support is hugely valuable to us!
