George V Playing Field

The June meeting of the St Andrews Women's Group was held on Wednesday 5th in the Parish rooms and was a most successful and sociable evening.
Our speaker Mrs Janet Appleby was superb and entertained us with many humorous anecdotes of her time at the Tattenhall Ice Cream Farm when as a member of the WFU she acted as a guide to parties of schoolchildren from around the county.
The children were introduced to farming life and showed the progress from "cow to cone". The highlight at the end of the visit was being taken to the ice cream parlour to choose their favourite ice cream cone. A lengthy process!
The finale to Janet's talk was to introduce us to some of the more unusual flavours of ice cream.Stem ginger, Ferrero Rocher, sticky toffee pudding and liquorice with blackcurrant all proved delicious and very popular. Vanilla will seem a little tame after this. Provided with a small tub and a plastic spoon we were soon tasting and queuing up for more! No need for our usual tea and coffee on this occasion.
Thank you Janet for a wonderful evening.
There is no formal meeting in July. An outing has been arranged so our next meeting will be our AGM and social evening on 4th September at 7.30 in the Parish Room.
The meetings of this group are open to all, you do not have to be a member or join so we look forward to seeing you.

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...
