George V Playing Field

We have just been told that our application for a grant from Tarvin Parish Council has been supported in their latest round of funding. As you probably appreciate we have operated on an entirely voluntary basis over the last 6 years using funds that we have received from two Lottery grants. These enabled us to set up the original Tarvinonline website and pay the monthly hosting costs on the servers we use for the website software. However the well was starting to run dry this year hence our local application which will keep us running for another 12 months.
A few facts and figures:
Since Jan 2015 we have published 3940 articles and our readers have exceeded 300000 in number reading almost 600000 pages — so we must be doing something right!
Do keep us up to date with all the local information so we can share it around.

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...
