Welcome Minor Improvements

Some of the more sharp-eyed among you may have noticed theses small improvements in the village lately:

  • Village notice board.
    New Board

    The old board on the Red Lion wall had become very pitted and tatty and the Parish Council has provided a new one so that voluntary organisations can advertise their events. They ask that people only use pins and NOT staples to fix notices as the latter make a terrible mess of the wood. When an event is over they also ask that you remember to remove your notice so that others may use the space. The Parish Council would like to thank Ray Woollam for providing the board at a very reasonable cost.

  • Playing Field Gate.
    Over the years a weakness in the hedge between the King George V Playing Field and the
    New gate 2014

    Community Centre had developed, a weakness much exploited by youngsters climbing over to retrieve footballs. During the last Village Fete the gap was used to let visitors move between the two areas and when this was refilled, the result was visually messy. A new self-locking gate has been provided with the cost shared between the Parish Council and the Community Centre. Both would like to thank CW&C who installed it free of charge.

  • Community Centre Noticeboard
    The Community Centre notice board by the entrance to the Playing Field suffered from high winds a few weeks ago and has been refurbished. Part of the board has been created from the remains of the original A-frame that was damaged in an earlier storm. This board is for Community Centre

It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
