Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Market coffee morning on Saturday, 22 November. We raised just over £160 to go towards the organisation and running of this year's Christmas Market. This is the best result we have ever achieved.
A special thank you must go to the Methodist Church for letting us hold the event on their premises and to the Brownies who gave up their Saturday morning to help run the event by selling books and raffle tickets and helping to clear the tables. Thank you to all those who baked cakes, gave raffle prizes and a thank you again to those who supported us.
As you are aware the Christmas Festival and Market is being held on Saturday, 6 December, in the High Street from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm so do please put it in your diary and bring family and friends along. It promises to be a great event and it will take place whatever the weather.
This is an opportunity for us to remind you that the High Street will be closed to transport from 12 noon until 11.30 pm on that Saturday from the junction with Hockenhull Lane down to Church Street.
Keep following Tarvinonline for further updates.

Imposing and elegant, the black poplar (Populus nigra) was once a...
