Shortly after the Parish Council was awarded a Gardening Licence so that people could do work in the area that was to become our woodland without being guilty of trespass, Jim Grogan was offered two notice boards that were past their best and surplus to requirements in Delamere Forest. He jumped at the offer and the two boards, smartened up with some coats of wood treatment, were installed within what was then the new woodland — one at the Broomheath Lane gateway and the other at the Hockenhull Lane gateway. There they have been for over 20 years, keeping the users of the woodland up-to-date with the progress and the plans of, firstly, the Parish Council Sub-Committee and then the Trust (which now (amazingly) has been in existence for getting on for 12 years.)
It will take several months for the next two boards to be produced. However, Tony is optimistic that they should be ready before the New Year and so it looks as if Tarvin Community Woodland will have three brand-new notice boards fitted during 2019. Timber care for the new boards involves merely an occasional coating with Osmo oil and so, provided that is done, they should last even longer than the two recycled Forestry Commission boards have done. "Start with good stuff and it will last" seems to be a good motto!
