18th months after purchasing Pryors Hayes Golf Club, the new owners, Tim and Richard Barnes, are continuing to renovate features, and make improvements, to the Club.

The latest renovations include digging out overgrown reeds from the ponds on the 17th and 18th fairways. In addition to relaying some current tees to to ensure big flat areas, some new tees are being built to produce a better alignment through to the greens. Four tees have been completed so far and over the next few weeks work will begin on a further six. Other plans include more drainage work on 12th fairway and some tree planting in new areas. The remedial work done on all 18 greens has been a dramatic success story, such that some members are now complaining that they are running too well and, the excuse that a bobble on the green caused the missed putt, is a thing of the past!

Even more exciting future possibilities have been revealed in a review of the course by the Golf Architect, Mark Westenburg. Mark's CV includes work on Trump International, Rock Cliff, and more locally Wychwood Park — see www.westenburggolf.com. He has proposed changes from further new tees and bunkers, to possible major design changes to three holes in the Spring. Apparently the really clever bit will be that this major work will be achievable without interruption to the current holes!

It's a sign of the growing strength of the Club that Rachel, a member of the ladies Cheshire Team, and Matt Leach, General Manager, have recently joined the existing staff on a permanent basis. In addition, the Club is looking for someone part-time to work behind the bar or in the golf shop. Anyone interested should contact Matt Leach or Club Secretary, Joan on 01829 741250,

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...
