Tarvin Woodland competes for support

Home » Newsroom » Woodland completes path

As you are probably aware from a previous article on Tarvinonline, Tarvin Woodland has been awarded a Green Flag (Community) for the fourth consecutive year — one of just nineteen sites in the whole of the North-West of England (and only two in the old County of Cheshire) to receive this award.

As a part of their 'Green Flag Award' scheme, 'Keep Britain Tidy', the operating organisation, runs a competition for all the winning sites whereby their supporters are able to cast a vote to find the nation's favourite open space. Being a small woodland in a small village, the chances of Tarvin Woodland receiving this accolade are probably very slim but, should anyone wish to vote for OUR very own village's favourite woodland, here is the link to the website

Editor's Comment" Come on residents of Tarvin let's all vote for Tarvin Community Woodland here"

Talking of the Community Woodland here is up-to-date information on the new path!

The Grogan's Walk path through the woodland is now complete and fully open.

The Trustees hope that more members of the community will enjoy the woodland now that it is more small-wheeled buggy and mobility scooter friendly. The seats and surrounding areas now offer the facility to park and ponder and won't keep getting overgrown.
