Exhibition at St Andrew's

There was a steady flow of visitors to St Andrew's Church on Saturday (11th June) to view the Exhibition of Royal memorabilia, staged to celebrate the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen.

Exhibits spanned the 90 years of the Queen's life, with church records of local baptisms and weddings, programmes, illustrated books, celebratory china and photographs of the many royal occasions, and original newspapers relating to historic events.

With our traditional music playing in the background, a slide show of Tarvin as it was in the early twenties, visitors also enjoyed the refreshments of scones and cream cakes.

The exhibition was also available for view by the congregation at the special service on Sunday morning.

Congratulations and thanks to all who staged this truly unique exhibition, and the volunteers who provided and served the refreshments.

Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
