Wells Cottages Garden
Duckers Well 2

The Parish Council is delighted to announce that the Tarvin Gardening Society has agreed to take over the maintenance of two pieces of local land so that these areas continue to contribute positively to the village environment.

The first piece is a stretch of shrubbery adjacent to the wall of Well Cottages, opposite the Post Office. This surprisingly fertile bit of public space can grow a good crop of weeds and soon look untidy so its regular maintenance will enhance the High Street.

The second piece of land is that around Duckers Well on Church Street. This interesting area has been transformed recently from the site of an old garage to provide a modest but fascinating glimpse into Tarvin's history. Though there are no visible remains of the old lock-up, well or the pinfold — an area for holding stray animals — the interpretive panel there does remind today's residents of the life of past inhabitants.

The Parish Council has agreed to make a donation to the Gardening Society and the arrangement will be reassessed in a year. Such co-operation is yet another example of the great community spirit that exists within the village.

If you would like to get involved through the Gardening Society then do call 01829 740870.
