Tarvin Christmas Festival and Market
Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Market fund-raising coffee morning and cake sale last Saturday at which we raised just under £100 to go towards the organisation and running of this year's Christmas Market.
There are as always a lot of people to say 'thank you' to when organising a fund-raising event. A special thank you must go to the Methodist Church for letting us hold the event on their premises. Thank you to all those who baked cakes, gave raffle prizes and a thank you again to those who supported us on what weatherwise was a very dreary and cold November Saturday morning.
A reminder yet again that the Christmas Festival and Market is being held on Saturday, 3 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.
We would at this stage like to draw everyone's attention to the fact that the Tarvin High Street will be closed from 12 noon to 11.00 pm on Saturday, 3 December. To keep everyone safe the road has to be closed during the erection of the market stalls, the electrical installation, the event itself, the taking down of the stalls and the tidying up afterwards. This inevitably takes a long time so please bear with us. The High Street will be closed from the junction with Hockenhull Lane to the junction with Church Street. The road closure will be controlled by Amberon, a specialist road management company.
We do hope that this will not cause anyone too many problems and that everyone will feel that the fun of the event itself will more than compensate for any inconvenience.

It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...
Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
