Community Centre

Many of you will remember that the Community Centre recently conducted a questionnaire to find out the villagers' thoughts about the Community Centre. There was a very large response and the importance of the Centre to the village was more than adequately demonstrated. The Community Centre Committee has started applying for grants to get the work under way and the questionnaire results will form a central part of that submission.

However, funding bodies do like to see a wide range of support from a community when considering allocating funds. So the Community Centre will be sending out a letter to a range of village organisations asking them to add their voice and views to the request. This method of generating support has been used very effectively by the Woodland Trust in applying for grants.

Of course you don't have to be a member of an organisation to give the Community Centre your support. If you have enjoyed a party, seen a film, attended a meeting or come to a play, you can write a letter of support.

To see a copy of the letter, to read about the improvements that are planned and to find out where to send your comments, please go to

The Committee look forward to hearing from you.

Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
