Tarporley Twinning Association

Tarporley has been twinned with Bohars near Brest, Brittany, since 1983 and is a self funding association open to all in Tarporley and surrounding villages. There’s one adult exchange in May and one children’s exchange, late August, each year. It’s inexpensive as Bohars is relatively easy to reach, and we’re always looking for new people to join us, including families with 12 to 16-year-olds, to experience the activities, fun and friendship.

You don’t need to speak French, and all help and advice is available. If you’re interested, contact David Dunning on 01829 781426 or email daviddunning53@googlemail.com.

A message from Linda for anyone who's lost 2 horses...

Two horses loose on the A49, both bay/dark, rugged and I think 1 has a plait in its tail? We managed to steer them into a field as they were getting very spooked at the traffic. I couldn’t catch them but they are safe. If anyone has any idea who they belong too they are in the field next to the Murco garage.

What shall we call the new car park and road?

As you will have noticed, part of the former Royal British Legion site in Tarporley is being re-developed. This will create a new road and a new car park (to replace the old car park that houses will be built on). Ownership of the new car park, the bowling green and remaining allotments will be transferred to the Parish Counci.

Tarporley Parish Council are inviting suggestions for a name for the new car park and the new road.

If you would like to suggest names then please email the Parish Clerk at clerk@tarporley.org.uk

The deadline is 5th March 2018

Here's an interesting local history query from Ruslan in the US...

Hi, my name is Ruslan and I am wrestling fan from Delaware Ohio of USA.
My inquiry is about the traditional wrestling contests which were essential part of the annually held Bunbury Wakes in the 1800's. I recently discovered that sport event on
BritishNewspaperArchives as well as I saw online the old 1808 wakes sports bill which mentioned wrestling.
My question is about the style of wrestling which was practiced by local men at Bunbury Wakes.
I would highly appreciate any info on that subject.
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards,
Ruslan

A message from United Utilities for those in the CW6 area:

You may have noticed that the water is coming out of your tap slower than usual or may have gone off altogether. We have one of our inspectors looking into this at the moment and as soon as we know what the cause of the problem is we’ll let you know.

We’re sorry about this and will try and get your taps flowing normally as quickly as we can. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know what’s causing the problem.
