Great End to 2013 Family Film Season
When Sue Hardacre collected the tickets sales for Turbo on Friday evening she was a bit disappointed that only a dozen had been bought. Had the message got through to parents? Had the publicity been adequate?
By 6 o'clock the answer to these questions was a resounding "yes" as 90 children and 48 grown ups packed the Community Centre to enjoy the show. It was the largest audience of the year and was a very satisfactory end to the 2013 season.
"We are so pleased with the response from the village" said Sue, who looks after the marketing and publicity for the Centre. "It is a very family friendly evening and though the concentration level might not always meet with the approval of the Manager at the VUE cinema, our audience thrives on the informal and relaxed ambience. We are also attracting people who might not have seen the Community Centre as having a place in their village life, which can only be good for the future success of the Centre".
The Film Nights will continue in the New Year, usually on the fourth Friday in the month. The next family event at the Community Centre is the Family Christmas Concert on Friday 6th December. This starts at 6.30pm and the performance, including a visit by Father Christmas, will last about one hour. Tickets, £5 for adults, £3 for children under 12, are now available at the Post Office or from 740868 /741962

Those of us amongst the Tarvin population who have been around a while can remember a time before the A51 bypass; when huge lorries came through the village and the bollard opposite the pubs and chip shop was in a permanent state of demolition! Building the bypass made a huge difference to the centre of the village. But there was a wonderful by-product — the abandoned part-fields, no longer of...
As Christmas approaches we all do a little online shopping as it's so convenient. However when you are not in having your delivery driver put your pricey goods in the safe place really isn't that safe as we found out earlier on this week when a resident of our village gave us a warning after she got her parcels stolen. For those who use Amazon they have an option of...
