In this age of austerity it is quite unusual for a public body, in this case Tarvin Parish Council, to have to decide on how to spend money rather than save it.

cheque, money, finance, charity, donation

This pleasant problem has come about for two reasons. Firstly the Council included an amount in its budget and secondly, the Parish Council is in receipt of New Homes Bonus funding, generated from the new properties that have been built in the village.

The first Council meeting in May looked at a number of potential projects some dealing with improvements in the Playing Field.

  • One major project being costed is the provision of low level lighting along the pathway, giving illumination without adding to local light pollution.
  • Improvements to the playing field car park,
  • Some extra seating behind the basketball hoop
  • A graded track to encourage bike riding by toddlers were also looked at.

At the meeting on Monday evening (June 22nd) the first improvement was agreed with the purchase of a bench for the Children's Play area. In the fine weather families like to congregate there and the current metal benches are hardly conducive to a comfortable stay. It is hoped that the bench can be installed quickly so that families can enjoy it during the warm summer days of the school holidays.

Another important decision was taken to give a one-off Capital Grant to the Community Centre of £2,625. This money, together with a similar and most generous donation from Mr. Wright of Hockenhull Hall, will enable the Community to put in a proposal for a much larger grant from WREN for the development of the rear room into a lounge area.
WREN require all requests to be accompanied by a sum of money raised from outside sources before they will consider offering a grant.
The Community Centre Management Committee will be now be able to send the application off by the closing date of July 8th 2015 and hope that there will be good news when the results of applications are announced in November.

The Parish Council would be delighted to hear from anyone who has suggestions to make for improvements, but residents need to remember that the sums for such projects should cost sums in the hundreds or lower thousands of pounds.
Please contact the Parish Clerk on 01829 741075 or Miketarvinparish@aol.com with your suggestions or speak to any Councillor.
