There are two groups of people who will be relaxing today (Sunday Dec 3rd) after the successful conclusion to a great deal of arduous work. They are the Community Centre Committee after the sell-out performance of Snow White, and the Christmas Market Group after delivering another excellent High Street fair. Once again, the Christmas season in Tarvin has started with a bang.

Sue Hardacre for the Community Centre said "We were delighted that we were packed to the rafters with a very happy audience. Bitesize Theatre again produced a Panto that mixed the traditional with just enough of the modern to please everyone." Tickets has sold slowly at first, but a last-minute rush meant that all the seats were sold. Booking early is a must for this show.

Lyn Hillier for the Christmas Market said "We were delighted with the response from both residents and businesses who supported us so generously. Some stallholders who were new this year have asked to be invited again". Local businesses on the High Street joined in and did excellent business providing food and drinks for the revellers, and Santa, as always, did a brisk trade in present requests.

The Christmas Market Group has grown a bit recently and was able to share out the jobs to more willing hands. However, Lyn would be delighted to hear from anyone locally who would like to be involved and invites anyone interested to contact her at lynphillier@googlemail.com. "It's a wonderful way to get to know the village and make friends" Lyn said.

The Community Centre could also do with some extra help. "The staging we use for the audience is strong and stable but extremely heavy to manoeuvre about" said Sue "The sight of a bunch of septuagenarians, some with medical conditions, heaving the planks around is not a pretty one and next year we may have to put out a call for some younger volunteers to lift and carry".

But however tired these two groups are today they both agree that the sight and sound of happy children and smiling parents, and the feeling of community goodwill, is worth all the effort. There is probably a good chance they will do it all again next year!

Ed: If you e-mail us your pictures of the Pantomime & Christmas Festival we share them with the local community.
