Tai Chi
American Cheerleaders

Tarvin Community Centre has announced the start of two new activities at the start of 2015.
The first is a Tai Chi class from 13:30 to 14:30 beginning on Tuesday 13th January in the Edna Rose room and then weekly thereafter. The classes are being offered by Ashworth Time-Bank and you can ring them on 01829 751398 to reserve a place. The cost is £35 for 10 weeks or £5 for an individual session and a free 'taster session' is available for those who would like to try before buying.

Tai Chi
Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, tai chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise. The Tai Chi Union of Great Britain was formed in 1991 and promotes Tai Chi Chuan as accessible to people of all ages and physical abilities and that it can be practised on many levels, from a simple 'meditative' exercise to a realistic martial art.

The second new class again has the theme of keeping fit, but in this case the exercise is based on the American Cheerleading experience. Called Cheerladies, there will be two classes per week starting on Saturday 17th January from 11:00 to 12:00 with a second class from 11:30 to 12:30 on Monday 19th January. Both classes will be held in the Edna Rose room. The class leader, Jasmine, promises stunts, motion technique, and mini cheer and dance routines to exciting upbeat music and pom poms! No cheerleading or any other experience required and all age group above 16 are welcome. Jasmine can be contacted on 07922640239 or by e-mail at

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. 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...
