George V Playing Field
By Tarvin Webteam - 27th June 2015 6:00am
Moving with the times, Tarvinonline has accepted that the days of "letter to the editor" are numbered and that the future lies with "e-mails to the editor!"
We had two interesting ones recently that we think deserve a wider audience and the chance for our readers to chip in with their support or otherwise.
The first was from Margaret Dixon and involved the current work taking place on the A51. Margaret wrote:
"I have heard several people comment on the smooth running of the A51 during the present work being done for Scottish Power Energy Network.
We are all fast at complaining so I sent an email to Duttons, the contractors.
Today Richard Dutton, the Managing Director replied to say how pleased they were that their efforts in planning and cooperation have worked well and are appreciated."
The second e-mail was from Joan and Harry Bradley who were responding to the recent Tarvinonline flyer. Joan and Harry wrote:
"Your leaflet today invites contributions. Our "love" is Tarvin Library, an immensely valuable local resource with infinitely helpful staff. How are we able to register this and invite local supportive comment?"
Ed: Tarvinonline exists to inform and reflect the issues that are important to Tarvin residents and so please lets get engaged in order to create the community we all want. You can start by adding your e-mail thoughts on the above subjects.

As a part of the Woodland's recent Plant Sale, Caroline Gregson has donated a very fine plant support. 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!
