Tarvin Woodland competes for support

As a part of their 'Green Flag Award' scheme, 'Keep Britain Tidy', the operating organisation, runs a competition for all the winning sites whereby their supporters are able to cast a vote to find the nation's favourite open space. Being a small woodland in a small village, the chances of Tarvin Woodland receiving this accolade are probably very slim but, should anyone wish to vote for OUR very own village's favourite woodland, here is the link to the website

The Trustees hope that more members of the community will enjoy the woodland now that it is more small-wheeled buggy and mobility scooter friendly. The seats and surrounding areas now offer the facility to park and ponder and won't keep getting overgrown.

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
