In May of 1987 the Tarvin History Scrapbooks included several articles referring to the Northern Dairies depot and the noise of their wagons arriving and leaving from the depot on Lower High St (now the Industrial Estate).

A local pensioner, a Mr William Taylor of Lower High St, had dubbed Tarvin as the "village that can't sleep" due to the traffic leaving the depot at 5.30 am and returning as late as 11pm. Mr Taylor was supported by Tarvin Parish Council, who took up the matter with the Company.

On hearing of this problem, a member of Northern Dairies canteen staff, Barbara Grogan put her thoughts on the matter in the form of a poem, right, adding that "members of the canteen staff had lived in the village since they were children and had never found cause to complain.

Mr Taylor agreed that the changes implemented since his complaint had been a vast improvement, saying "the wagons don't come through the village now...it is smashing, really marvellous."
