The George and Dragon features in the Tarvin History Group's scrapbooks for September 1986 following their success in coming second in a national competition for English Country Gardens run by Bank's Brewery!

Norman Cain and his wife Olwen appear in the photo 'hoping' to win £50 as a result of coming second!

The gardens at the time were described as a popular attraction in Tarvin and had already won the village's Civic Trust hanging basket competition on a number of occasions.

Mr Cain did confess "To be honest, I am not the gardener in the family: My wife does it all!"

Ed:Why did the annual hanging basket competition disappear, it would make the village centre more attractive!"
