Green Flag (Community) Award Yes, we’ve done it again! We’ve just won our 12th consecutive award that shows we meet the global standard for well-managed open spaces. This reflects the financial and voluntary effort that the Tarvin Community provides to keep it running. Thank you, Tarvin.
Plant Sale 2021 It wasn’t the usual sunny weather, and Covid rules prevented use of the usual High Street location, but a successful plant sale was conducted from Andrews Close and Church Cottages on Saturday, May 15th. Heather Exell and Jacqui Bradley had spent months of hard work and dedication to ensure that a wonderful selection of plants and hanging baskets was ready for sale. The Tarvin community responded as usual and most plants were sold. It had been agreed that, for this year the profit, after costs were recovered, would go to Tarvin Methodist Church (TMC) to help with its financial problems. As a result, ¬£1,250 went to TMC and, additionally, donations worth ¬£150 went to TMC and ¬£150 to the Woodland. Surplus plants will be available to buy at the Village Fete on Saturday, July 3rd and the Plant Sale will hopefully be back to its usual format, using TMC, in 2022. Thank you Tarvin and thank you Jacqui and Heather.
