Parish Plan

At the Parish Council meeting on Monday (July 24th) the Council and public stood in silence for one minute to honour the memory of, and to reflect on the contribution made by former Councillor Brian Spruce, who died after a long illness on Saturday July 23rd.

Brian was a Tarvin Parish Councillor from 26th March 2007 until 23rd November 2015 when deteriorating health forced him to give up the role he so enjoyed.

Brian was born in Barrow and trained as an engineer. He then went on to found the very successful local company Turner Groundscare based at Stanford Bridge. He retired as Managing Director in May this year
Brian is survived by his wife and three sons. Tarvin Online wishes to extend their sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

The funeral will be held at Barrow Church on Monday 31st July at 2.30pm with refreshments afterwards at Pryors Hays Golf Club
