On September 10th 2016 about 400 people from the local community celebrated the completion of the new woodland extension created as part of Taylor Wimpey’s Saxon Heath development off Tarporley Road.  As usual, Andy Davies, head of Tarvin Primary School, generously allowed the Trust to use the school as its base of operations for the day. 

There were two elements to the celebration; the handover of the deeds of the extension land and a walk for the community to explore both the new and the the existing parts of the woodland.

There were two key sponsors for the day.  Active Cheshire gave sponsorship for the walk and medals were awarded at the completion of the walk.  Taylor Wimpey provided the picnic after the walk.

Stuart Exell, chairman of the Trust thanked all the various supporters and groups that enable Tarvin’s woodland to be the success that it is.  The many Users, lots of whom are regulars, the Parish Council, Chester West and Chester Council, the local people who donate so that the Trust can function, the Volunteers who turn out on Thursday mornings in all weathers to do the physical work and those who do the equally valuable paperwork.  He also thanked Tarvin Methodist Church which, together with the school, hosts the events not actually in the woodland.

Stuart Craig, the Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey (TW), then said how constructive it had been for TW to work with the community on the planning and agreements for constructing the woodland extension as part of the housing development.  The existence of the woodland in Tarvin had been a positive factor in selling all the new houses in a fairly short time and many of the new residents are regular users.  He then handed over the deeds to Stuart Exell.

Here are some pictures of the day.
