Weeds get Everywhere!

Home » Newsroom » Weeds get Everywhere!

Though it has hardly been a vintage summer, the recent combination of mild temperatures and rain showers has seen a proliferation of weeds everywhere. Recently the Parish Council's Streetscene working party took a look at the state of the village centre and was surprised to see so many weeds growing out of the junction between houses and pavements. One three foot ragwort was standing proudly to attention outside a local hostelry!

The Parish Council would like to ask all homeowners just to take a minute to look at their properties from the outside and just check that all is looking neat and tidy. Pulling up a few ugly weeds or trimming a bit of overhanging hedge can make a great difference to the overall look of the Parish.

The Streetscene working party was delighted to report that the overall state of the village centre was good, with little litter to be found. The Parish Council has worked closely with the CW&C authority to ensure that the village is kept clean and will respond quickly to any complaints to try and make sure that problems are solved quickly. A couple of weeks ago a gutter cleaning van was seen in the village so it is hoped that the weeds in the gutters have been dealt with at last.

If the Parish Council, CW&C and residents can all play their part, Tarvin will continue to be a pleasant and attractive place to live.

Ed: No Tarvin resident is responsible for the weeds in the accompanying picture because it is a generic one obtained from the internet. But please feel free to send in pictures of any Tarvin Parish examples you come across. Perhaps we could then have a competition to spot the guilty parties!!
