Cheshire will be celebrating Cheshire Heritage Festival from the 3rd to the 11th of September this year.

Organised by a partnership of Chester Civic Trust and Cheshire West and Chester Council, in association with other local societies, Cheshire Heritage Festival celebrates our architecture and culture by allowing free access to interesting properties, as well as free tours, events and other activities.

A full colour brochure is available for free from Tarvin Library and includes all the events and how to participate in them.

One of the events, organised by Tarvin Local History Group, is a guided tour of the historic township of Tarvin. Starting at 1.30pm on Saturday 10th September, the tour starts and finishes outside St Andrew's Church.

This is usually a very popular event, so make sure you turn up on time (no booking required).

Ed: "An ideal afternoon for anyone with an interest in the history of our village, especially if you are one of the many new families who have recently moved here, or, if you just want to know more of our history!"

Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
