Tarvin Community Woodland Trust
This year, our coffee morning will be on Saturday 19th October 2019. However, as well as offering the usual coffee, biscuits, cake, and a raffle, we have another purpose, unrelated to raising money. We want to enable the community to meet the woodland Trustees and to have the chance to discuss what has been going on in our lovely woodland.
And what a list of topics there are to discuss! Since the Plant Sale last May (the other occasion during which Trustees make themselves available to chat to folk in the village — for as long as is needed — about woodland matters), a great deal has happened and a quick list includes:-
- The progressive development of the Saxon Heath section of our woodland.
- Wilding an area within the woodland.
- The on-going survey of the birds in our woodland.
- Wild flowers in the woodland.
- Management of our trees.
- Our bird boxes and the woodland birds.
- The Jim Grogan Countryside & Wildlife Award — and this year's winner: Freddie Parr.
- The success of Apple Pressing Day.
- Our on-going work with the school.
- Our newsletter- its delivery, content and usefulness.
No one is likely to run out of things to say! So, if you care about our woodland, if you would like to help us to raise the funds we need to maintain it properly or if there is an issue (or issues) that you would like to talk through with Trustees, then 10.00am next Saturday is the time and the Chapel on High Street is the place for you!
DO come and join us. We find your support hugely valuable!

There were many discoveries in store for us when, over 40 years ago and in the depths of winter, we moved to Tarvin. Everything was new and we were able (with, as it were, new eyes) to watch the village go through its seasonal evolution: winter becoming spring and then moving into summer. In the spring, it was a joy to see buds beginning to break and, not long thereafter, hedgerows along lanes...
