It promises to be a very busy day in Tarvin on Saturday, 10th September for locals and visitors alike.
As part of this year's Heritage Open Days programme in Cheshire West and Chester, you can visit St Andrew's Church to view the acclaimed History Exhibition, including remains of the Saxon Cross unearthed in the village, artefacts from the English Civil War and the recently restored funeral bier. Set in the Grade 1, 14th century listed building, the exhibition is open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.
If you want a further insight into the history of Tarvin village itself, you can join the Guided Tour of the conservation area of the village following the Tarvin Trail, starting at 1.30 pm from outside the church. Just turn up, no booking is required.
If you are interested in art, you can visit the St Andrew's Art Group Annual Exhibition, which is being staged in the Old Grammar School, now the Parish Room (next to the church) from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Admission is free, but coffee and refreshments are available. Visitors to the church are also welcome to pop in and partake of these refreshments.
Last, but not least, there is the Tarvin Community Woodland Trust's "Celebration Walk and Picnic" to mark the opening of the extension of the Tarvin Woodland Walk. Starting at 1.30 pm at Tarvin Primary School there will be medals for all the children, certificates and lollipops for everyone and, to round it off, a super picnic – bring your own rug! The event is being held in conjunction with Taylor Wimpey, Active Cheshire and Tarvin Primary School.
