Tarvin War Memorial

Home » Newsroom » Tarvin War Memorial

We received this from a Tarvin resident on Sunday.
"The war memorial looks fantastic and all thanks to the generosity of Jacqueline Wilson Funeral Directors. The service of remembrance was a very moving occasion and very well supported by all groups in the village. It was made even more special because the memorial now looks cared for.

The only thing marring the whole scene is the insensitive placing of the waste bin by CWAC Streetscene.

This space was once filled by a bench to match the one placed on the other side. Another bench could be placed in this spot to mark the 100years anniversary of WW1. A project not beyond the capabilities of fund raising in the Village. It would be a continuation of the restoration work already carried out and make the view of the memorial more respectful.

A more appropriate place could be found to site the bin whether a bench is placed there or not. At the moment it is an eyesore and a complete distraction from the meaning of the war memorial."

(Ed. Perhaps the Parish Council could take the initiative and arrange for this to move and pay any costs involved?)

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...
