    A year after this photo was taken The National Housewives Register became the National Women's Register, a move that reflected the changing lives of many women who were much more likely to be working outside the home than wielding a duster in the living room.
    Recently the Tarvin group decided to withdraw from the national association to form Tarvin Meeting Point but the group remains true to the aims of the original. We enjoy exchanging information and ideas in an atmosphere of friendship. We meet in members homes and mix the serious with the light-hearted. Despite the changes that time has wrought in us we remain 'lively minded women' and would welcome new members.
