George V Playing Field
By Sarah Dutton - 30th June 2019 6:00am
After recently being appointed as a Councillor for Tarvin Parish Council, I would like to take the opportunity to briefly introduce myself.
Originally from Chester, I moved to Tarvin as a child attending the local primary school and then Tarporley High School. From Tarporley High School I went on to University to study for a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.
I currently work at a University in Liverpool, where I am responsible for student recruitment and heavily involved in widening participation initiatives. Alongside this, I have spent the past 2 years studying part-time for a Masters degree in Education. I am currently in the final stages of the course with a deadline of September 2019 to complete my 15,000-word thesis!
I have recently purchased my first house in the village and I am happy that Tarvin will continue to remain my home for the foreseeable future.
If I am not working, studying or renovating my house, you may see me walking around the village with my Mum and two wire-haired Dachshunds. Please do say hello!
I am pleased to be serving on Tarvin Parish Council and hope to make a positive impact to the local community.

There were many discoveries in store for us when, over 40 years ago and in the depths of winter, we moved to Tarvin. Everything was new and we were able (with, as it were, new eyes) to watch the village go through its seasonal evolution: winter becoming spring and then moving into summer. In the spring, it was a joy to see buds beginning to break and, not long thereafter, hedgerows along lanes...
