St Andrews

The Churches of St Andrew's Tarvin, and St Peter's Duddon are in need.

It costs a great deal of money to equip and run our churches in order that they are there when members of the parish need them,for a special occasion,or for a sad occasion.

The church is supported financially by those who attend church regularly and by a limited number of others in the community. With the cost of keeping the church buildings in order and maintaining its use for the community it belongs to, this is increasingly too little year on year. The Churches are looking at a financial loss of £20,000 this year.

It may get to a stage where the church will not be able to serve the villages that it is part of, and not be able to maintain its use for those things that the majority of families look for in their local church.

We are asking for you to consider supporting your church in a financial way, either by regular giving or a one off donation, both can be gift aided, adding 20% to your kind gift.

If you would like to be able to use your church in the future, or support an important building in the village, then please consider making a donation, and if you can make a regular monthly one, this can be done by standing order, cheque, a gift aid envelope or by bank transfer.

If you are able to help, please contact our Treasurer, Richard Orfanelli, on or 01829 741189

Thank You.

Adam Friend.

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...

Well after a long day working at the hairdressers on Saturday a Sri Lankan takeaway from the Manor house (previously known as Jessops) was just what I needed, and it was delicious. Not knowing much about the cuisine and had never previously eaten any I was intrigued to give it a try. It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...
