Tarvin monument 2
Poppy window display

At Jacqueline Wilson Independent Funeral Services Ltd, we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from the community in Tarvin since we opened our office at 52 High Street on 11 August 2014.
As a thank you to the village, we have arranged for the War Memorial to be cleaned and this was completed on Wednesday 5th November 2014 just in time for the upcoming Remembrance Sunday on 9th November 2014.
The window display at our office on the High Street is remembrance themed with a lovely poem, In Flanders Fields by John McCrae 1915, as the centre piece.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We have also been selling Poppies in behalf of the British Legion.
Fresh Flowers are now available to purchase from the Tarvin office. These are supplied by The Flower Room in Tarporley. Flower arrangements and bouquets are also available to order and these can be collected or delivered.
For any further information please call 01829 740002.
