I wonder if any of our Tarvin residents can help us identify this amazing patchwork quilt or wall hanging that was found during recent renovations of the guide hut. Who made it, what for, and any suggestions with what we can do with it? It's about 20 foot long.

Many thanks

We received this from a resident today:"I had a strange experience when going into the Tarvin Co-op this morning. I was just putting my mask on before entering when a woman, probably 40ish came out of the doors not wearing a mask and told me to take my mask off as I didn't need to wear it in the shop. For a moment I was taken aback. Had the Co-op been declared a risk...
