Community Centre Sign

If you live in the Tarvin parish area you will have recently received the latest "Tarvin Times" — the newsletter of Tarvin Parish Council — together with a report giving the results of Tarvin Community Centre's community survey, which was delivered to households in April 2014.

The survey gave the Community Centre Management Committee comprehensive feedback on how much many of you value the Centre. It will also help the Committee determine its priorities for improving the Centre.
The Committee has identified three main areas for improvement:

  • Bringing the back room behind the Hall, which is currently used for storage, into use as a lettable space. This would include an alternative entrance, a toilet which can be used by people with a disability and a bar/server
  • Extending and refurbishing the kitchen, including providing access from the foyer
  • Changes to the main Hall including permanent steps to the stage, access to the stage for people with a disability and better lighting

These improvements are currently being costed but the Committee has already begun sounding out possible grant funders so that the best application can be made.

Of course the Committee does not expect external funders to provide all the necessary money. This is why the Committee, although it has continued to invest in modest improvements such as the sound system in the Hall, the new ceiling and lighting in the Edna Rose Room and extra parking spaces, has also built up an investment fund of about £25,000.

This fund has only been able to be accumulated thanks to the hard work of the Committee in promoting a variety of entertainment at the Centre.


The next such event is the Bolton folk band Bandersnatch on Saturday 15 November at 8.00 pm (doors open 7.30 pm), tickets £10. Please support this and other events and so help the Centre continue to improve
