The Community Centre is delighted to announce that Simon Shaw has started work as the new caretaker. Though formally starting before Christmas, the New Year sees Simon getting fully up to speed with his new job.

Simon is employed by the service provider Qwest but his 15 hours of employment are spent in the Community Centre. Simon has to open the Professional Centre each weekday morning at 7.30am but then he can structure his working day to ensure that both routine jobs and daily activities are covered in the most efficient way. Chair Alan Wilkinson said "After a long period when the caretaking was done by a mobile team working late in the evening, we are delighted to have someone who can get to know the Centre and it's customers and can become part of the team."

Simon was born in Sheffield and Joined the police there in 1986. He transferred to the North Wales Police in 1989 and remained with them for the rest of his career, retiring in 2016 in a senior role. His decision to live in Tarvin was prompted by his wife's connections with the village, she was born and brought up here. Having settled in to village life he was keen to find a role that would enable him to contribute to the community. He has also become involved in the Woodland Trust.

Simon says" I have rarely come across a Community Centre that is as intensively used as this one. I look forward to doing what I can to help the Management Committee develop this great community asset".

We wish Simon a successful second career at the Community Centre and trust that he will enjoy working for the Management Committee and the village as a whole.
