In May 1990, wartime evacuees gathered at Tarvin Community Centre for an afternoon of nostalgia and meet friends that they had not seen in 45 years. The event was hosted by the Parish Council and one of the organisers, Clerk, Mrs. Nancy Sutton, said "Some of the people only stayed in Tarvin for one day after being evacuated, but some had remained for a few years." In May 1990, one couple were reported to be still living in Tarvin.

The photograph shows wartime evecuee, Evelyn Newton, of Stockport being welcomed by Mrs Sutton.
