Tarvin's Spring Clean got under way on Thursday, 2nd March, when volunteers gathered in the village centre and picked litter on High Street, Church Street and Bye Pass Road. Gutters were also swept in High Street and grids cleared. The garden outside Well Cottages also received some attention.
The initiative coincides with Keep Britain Tidy's 'Great British Spring Clean' which runs from Friday 3rd March until Sunday 5th March. Roger Hones, a Tarvin resident, who has coordinated this year's Spring Clean says " The Great British Spring Clean is about everyone working together to clean up the litter that blights our landscape and communities and I'm delighted to be taking part and bringing people together to tackle an issue that many people care passionately about". Volunteers taking part so far have come from Tarvin Civic Trust, Tarvin Community Woodland Trust, Tarvin Gardening Club and Jacqueline Wilson IFS.
Another Community litter pick is planned for Sunday 5th March starting at 10:00 from Tarvin Community Centre. Litter pickers, high viz bibs and rubbish sacks are supplied by Tarvin Parish Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council. Volunteers should dress warm and wear gloves. Some of the wider area in and around Tarvin Parish will hopefully be litter picked.
Anyone can also join in the spirit of Tarvin's Spring Clean by checking the street where they live and picking litter at anytime this coming weekend.
