Police Band Drummer

The Community Centre was busy this weekend with a concert on Friday evening and a children's theatre performance on Saturday afternoon.

The Cheshire Constabulary Brass Band and Corps of Drums entertained with a thrilling display of musical virtuosity. With a wide repertoire that covered a number of musical styles they showed why they have such an excellent reputation both in this country and abroad. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the show. Yet this must be tempered by the fact that the audience was small with only 44 people coming along. The band, which is made up entirely of volunteers, very kindly waived any fee so that £400 will be donated to Tarporley Hospital from the proceeds. The evening was by no means a disaster, but the Committee were disappointed by the low turnout.

The audience for the play, Sammy and the Snow Leopard, was larger, with 60 people, young and old enjoying a lively piece of storytelling. When Sammy 'adopted' a snow leopard, he was amazed to be sent the real thing rather than the expected cuddly toy. If the narrative was a bit contrived at times, the engagement with the young audience was charming and very effective at holding the attention of the boys and girls seated close to the actor. Many parents in Tarvin seem to relish the opportunity to let their youngsters experience the special thrill of live theatre.

Chairman Alan Wilkinson said "We continue to try and bring a variety of events to encourage as many people as possible to come along and enjoy themselves. While we do seem to be doing some well like the film nights, there are times when we don't seem to get our choices quite right. I do hope that people will come along to the AGM on May 2nd and try and help us do better in the future"

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...
