First was the celebration of the ownership of the new woodland strip being handing over to the Trust by Taylor Wimpey, with the accompanying walk and picnic.
The second was the Apple Pressing Day, being held in the woodland on 1st October.
The third event is perhaps the least high-profile but, in some ways, the most important of them all. It is our Autumn Coffee Morning, being held at Tarvin Methodist Church between 10.00am and 12.00 noon on Saturday 15th October 2016.
The coffee morning is one of only two fundraising events that Tarvin Community Woodland Trust runs each year — its partner is the Plant Sale that we run each May. The cash raised at these two events, together with the grant which we receive annually from Tarvin Parish Council and the donations which we receive from our generous supporters collectively provide all of the money available to us to run the woodland. (The intention with any additional events such as the Celebration and the Apple Pressing is not to make money — on such occasions we set out merely to cover our costs.)
But, while the coffee morning is an opportunity to raise much-needed cash, that is not its sole purpose. It is the very best opportunity Trustees have to talk to the Tarvin community about the woodland and its' care. It is your chance to discuss the changes that have taken place and the things that YOU, the members of the community, would like to suggest for the future development of our lovely woodland.
Do come along, buy a cup of coffee, a piece of cake and a raffle ticket and talk to Trustees, to make sure that your ideas are recognised and can be considered for future action. The support that we receive from the Tarvin Community is hugely important to us. Do come along on Saturday 15th October and show your support!
