Community Woodland

The weekend has finally arrived! Tarvin village is going to receive a huge gift of the land that forms the extension to its woodland — and our benefactors will be funding our celebrations! Everyone has watched with interest as the Saxon Heath development turned what was just a couple of fields into an attractive new housing estate and we have all waited for the chance to investigate the 'woodland strip' that the builder, Taylor Wimpey, has created alongside the A51. On Saturday, the land will be handed over to Tarvin Community Woodland Trust, and thereafter will be managed alongside our existing woodland. This event also marks the opening of the extended pathway from Broomheath Lane up to Austins Hill, which gives us a quiet country walkway stretching all the way from Austins Hill to the King George V Playing Fields. There are not many villages that can say that they have such a wonderful facility!

The celebration day is Saturday 10th September. Festivities commence at 1.30pm, in the school hall, when Stuart Craig, Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, will hand over the deeds of the land to the Trust's Chairman, Stuart Exell. Then, beginning a little before 2.00pm, people will start a circular "Celebration Walk" of both old and new woodlands, setting out from and returning to the school playing field. The walk is, for the most part, on quiet footpaths, it will be well signposted and, along the course, there will be marshals who can deal with any problems. The section from Austins Hill to Saxon Heath, the only part which is on a busy road, will be cordoned off from traffic, with signs to warn drivers and extra marshals to keep everyone safe. On arriving back at the school, all children who have completed the circuit will receive a commemorative medal and everyone will receive a certificate and a lollipop — all by courtesy of ActiveCheshire, whose ambition is to get the village walking!

Once the walk has been completed, all of those present (both walkers AND those who are unable to walk but who come to share in the fun) are invited to join us for a picnic, funded by Taylor Wimpey. Food and drinks can be collected in the school hall and, once you have collected your food, you can join your friends on picnic rugs (which, hopefully, you thought to bring along in advance!) on the school field. Taylor Wimpey has been most generous and we can promise you a really good picnic. Do come along and join our village celebration. This really will be a very special day!
