The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

Land at Rear of The Bear & Ragged Staff

We have already publicised that Tattenhall is entering 'The Best Kept Village Award' this year.

With that in mind, the Committee has rolled out a plan to encourage everyone to get involved and to be mindful of litter, dog fouling, the need for tidy noticeboards etc., whilst accepting that we are a 'working village'.

Some of you may have already noticed that the metal benches in Millfield and on the Millennium Walk have had a make-over — our thanks to the individual who has given their time in this respect. — they look terrific. Thanks also to the individual who most recently cut the grass on which our Silent Soldier and our History Interpretation Panel are located (ie opposite the War Memorial).

However, there are areas which are just dreadful and which may be more difficult to tackle.

The rear of the Bear and Ragged Staff is, frankly, disgraceful as our images suggest.

Clearly the exterior of the Bear and Ragged Staff, a building which is currently for sale and which dominates our High Street, cannot be touched since it is privately owned.

One has to suggest, however, that should the panel judges take a stroll up the gap between the Bear and Ragged Staff and Pluto House to the area at the rear, then the litter alone is something on which we would immediately fail.

Suggestions please?
