Home » Newsroom » Community Groups Celebrate

Three village organisations are celebrating this week as the Co-op Local Community Fund delivers a significant grant to each of them.

The Community Centre is due to receive £1440.07. Chairman Alan Wilkinson says "This is a most welcome boost to our funds and will go to help pay for the construction of a storage building at the rear of the Centre. Thank you to all who have contributed"

Scout Leader Jo Richards says "A great big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who supported 1ST Tarvin Scouts by joining the Coop Community Fund and to the Coop themselves for organising it. We have gained a whopping £1,398. This is much needed funding and it will enable us to buy enough tents to take our newly formed scout troop camping in July."

St Andrew's Church will receive £1450,95. Vicar Adam Friend says "We are very pleased with the support both from the Community and the Co-op. The money is going to much needed repairs to the stonework on the church tower"

The Local Community Fund was established by the Co-op as part of its plans to re-establish the Food Store business as a 'local' brand. The funds have come from Co-op members 1% contribution on all their Co-op branded shopping and from the 5p plastic bag levy. Members can choose which local charity they wish to support with unallocated funds being divided equally between the three nominated charities.

Tomorrow, Wednesday April 19th., the local store will be celebrating the successful conclusion of its first Local Community Fund period, so do come along and help celebrate this piece of very good local news. The next phase of the Fund has already started and the three local charities are, Tarvin Primary School PTA, the Woodland Trust and St Andrews Church. For more details on how you can become a Co-op member and actively support a local worthy cause of your choice, go to or ask the staff in the local store.
