Failure to meet our Target

Home » Newsroom » Failure to meet our Target

Nowadays all you hear on TV is how this or that organisation (usually the NHS) is failing to meet its targets. Well, albeit on a smaller scale, TarvinOnline has its own targets. A key target is to publish at least 1 article by 6am every day except on major Bank Holidays.

I am holding my hand up that this week the presses failed to meet the timetable until late morning due to a major power failure at one of the Editors' houses rending all communication ( including phones) useless. That's not a bad record as the first time in 4 1/2 years I would humbly argue.
Since we usually get about 50 logins before 8am I wonder what everyone did that day ( curse or bless the website?) As we are about to go on hols for a couple of weeks to escape likely freezing February weather and we had no hot water or CH, resolution of the outage took priority over a story.
A mixed blessing I guess for some but one we will not try to repeat for at least another 4 years. However the "London Bus" syndrome lurks in my mind as we will be "single legging" on the Editor front for a bit so do help and send some articles in please to reduce the workload on the remaining editorial brain.

It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
