Peter Crab

The Parish Council has announced that the village operative, Mr. Peter Crabbe, is retiring following a bout of ill-health. Mr Crabbe has been working for the Parish Council for the last 23 years.

It is possible that not many people are aware of Mr Crabbe or the work that he did. Working for one hour a day and for five days a week, he kept Parish Council land tidy and litter free. The King George V Playing Field was his main area of concern and such a well-used piece of land inevitably collected a daily amount of litter. The steady removal of carelessly dropped paper, cans, and bottles has kept the space pleasant to use for many years now.

The Millennium Garden was the other area he cared for. For a small, modestly paid job, the impact on the parish has been great and the Parish Council is saddened that Mr. Crabbe's recent illness has prevented him from continuing.

He is definitely one of Tarvin's unsung heroes.
