has been removed from around the Parish. The Parish Council hopes that this will be equally successful. Like most individuals, the Council regrets that this seems to need an annual effort, but feels that the hard work involved by local people does make a measurable difference.

The Council has agreed to fund the application for Tarvinonline in the Best Community Website section of the same competition.

It is a spiral obelisk, approximately 5 feet tall, with a woven bird sitting on the top, sculptured in willow. My photograph certainly does not do it justice! For those unfamiliar with Caroline's work, I suggest you simply Google her name, "Caroline...
