Autumn Coffee Morning
Tarvin Methodist Church plays host to many coffee mornings during which organisations are able to do some vital fundraising. The woodland is no exception and our coffee morning will be at 10.00am on Saturday 11th October 2014.
However, as well as offering the usual coffee, biscuits, cake, bric-a-brac, etc., there is another purpose — we want to enable the community to meet the woodland Trustees and to have the chance to discuss what has been going on in our lovely woodland.
And what a list of topics there are to discuss! Since the Plant Sale in May (the other occasion during which Trustees make themselves available to chat to folk in the village — for as long as is needed — about woodland matters), a great deal has happened and a quick list includes:-
- The success of our new footpath.
- Changes made to the woodland gates
- Management of our trees.
- Developing coppice along our northern boundaries.
- The Jim Grogan Countryside & Wildlife Award — and this year's winner: Leah Barnham.
- Our new bird hides.
- Feeding the birds — a joint effort between school & village.
- Our other work with the school.
- Our plan to install water scrapes in the woodland.
- Acquiring the freehold of our existing woodland from CWaC.
- Acquiring the freehold of the new woodland strip from Taylor Wimpey.
- Communicating our activities with the community.
- Our newsletter- its delivery, content and usefulness.
No-one is likely to run out of things to say! So, if you care about our woodland, if you would like to help us to raise the funds we need to maintain it properly or if there is an issue (or issues) that you would like to talk through with Trustees, then 10.00am next Saturday is the time and the Methodist Chapel on High Street is the place for you!
DO come and join us. We find your support hugely valuable!

Well after a long day working at the hairdressers on Saturday a Sri Lankan takeaway from the Manor house (previously known as Jessops) was just what I needed, and it was delicious. Not knowing much about the cuisine and had never previously eaten any I was intrigued to give it a try. 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...
