Ed: "In our recent article, Tarvin History Revealed, we announced the start of a series of articles using scrapbooks created by Tarvin Local History Group. This is the first article in the series, and, it is only fitting that we start off by highlighting the contribution to Tarvin's History provided by the History Group."
As you will see from this article in the Chester Chronicle in 1984, the members of the History Group are busy researching the story of Tarvin before publishing the book "The History of Tarvin" which was planned for production in 1985.
Interesting to see the "young" couple Tony and Jackie Bland in the centre of the photo, and behind them the late Frank Latham!
Frank Latham was responsible for publishing a series of histories of Cheshire Villages (Alpraham, Tilstone Fearnall, and, Tiverton) and of publishing those by Local History Groups (Tarporley, Cuddington & Sandiway, Tattenhall, Christleton, Farndon, and, Barrow).
Tarvin Local History Group in 1984 included: Tony & Jackie Bland, Pat Bogunovic, Gill Chaplin, Sam Davies, W. John Edwards, E. Margaret Larkins, Marjorie Lightfoot, Barry Page, V. M. Radcliffe, Madeleine Sheppard, Joan Trowell, and, Valerie B. White.
