George V Playing Field
By Tarvin Community Woodland - 29th August 2013 7:00am
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

There were many discoveries in store for us when, over 40 years ago and in the depths of winter, we moved to Tarvin. Everything was new and we were able (with, as it were, new eyes) to watch the village go through its seasonal evolution: winter becoming spring and then moving into summer. In the spring, it was a joy to see buds beginning to break and, not long thereafter, hedgerows along lanes...
