The word "Community" is used a lot and taken for granted, but what does it really mean? Does it mean for the good of the "Community", certain sections of the "Community" or something that should be freely available to all.
If the latter then let us consider the noticeboards in Tarvin. We have been told by a Tarvin resident that there seems to be a self appointed censor who takes it upon himself/herself to remove any notices they do not agree with even when those notices are outlining events to be held in Tarvin and of interest to a good cross section of the community. Perhaps this is an official role?
The purpose of the notice boards should be clarified. Who "owns" them and approves? what can be put on them. If you have a notice to put up and the boards are full what happens then?
The boards in question are one situated next to the Parish Council notice board in the centre of the village and the other in The Community Centre.
The best way of advertising any event is through the tarvinonline website ( we would say that!) but we are aware that there is still a section of the community that relies on the public notice boards.

(Ed: We will try to get to the bottom of this, so if you are aware of someone removing posters before their due date then let us know via editor@tarvinonline.org)

Climate change is constantly in the news. Rising temperatures and sea-levels are part of a cycle repeated many times in Earth's history. We are within an interglacial period lasting, with warmer intervals, many thousands of years. The land surface has changed many times most recently during the last Ice Age. A time when ice hundreds of metres thick advanced across Cheshire and its retreat...
