The Tarvin History Group's scrapbooks for 1988 include these photos of the fun and games of the village playscheme in August.

Tarvin youngsters had the opportunity to pit their soccer skills against Steve Currie, goalkeeper for Runcorn Cavalier Football Club, in a "Beat the Goalie" session at Tarvin Primary School.

Another competition involved children doing hoola-hoop twirls, with 8-year-old Joanne Gilder of Hallfields winning after spinning a hoola-hoop 1587 times!
