Plant Sale 2018 - Thank you, Tarvin This year’s Plant Sale on Saturday morning, May 12th, was a great success and we made over £1,200. There was an excellent selection of plants and the sun shone. Tarvin folk turned out in force, also supporting the raffle and refreshments supplied by the Chapel which also made some money. Click for pics.
As part of informing the community, our April 2018 Newsletter has been delivered to all houses in Tarvin and Oscroft. It provides an update on what we’ve been doing and our plans for the future. Click for our Management Plan. There is also a leaflet from Tarvin Primary School.
Our CWaC councillors John Leather and Hugo Deynam have given us £574 for a petrol powered chipper that will enable us to process the increasing amounts of “brash” as the woodland matures and more maintenance is required. Click for more detail.
The scheme to by-pass the village of Tarvin included screened open space
between the village and the new road to reduce the impact of the road on the existing community. Over the last fifteen years, a major village asset has been created from that space. The Tarvin community has given over 10,000 hours of voluntary effort resulting in an area of woodland that now contains several hundred newly planted oak and other native hardwood trees together with a growing selection of wild flowers, birds and small animals. Its footpaths, informal tracks and adjacent bridleway are well used. Come and enjoy our living legacy. The government has published “Community-led spaces”, a guide for local authorities and community groups. This woodland is used as a case study on page 28. Click to download the booklet. In Britain we have one of the most crowded, modified landscapes in the world. Pressure on land continues to damage and fragment habitats of our native trees and wildflowers. The creation of Tarvin Community Woodland is a long term environmental scheme to provide an area that allows native flora and fauna to flourish. Please protect and enjoy the countryside and preserve it for future generations to come.
