The Community Centre's financial year ended on 31 March 2015 and the accounts for 2014/15 have now been produced and audited.

The accounts show that an overall surplus of almost £5,000 for the year was achieved, and this will go towards the major investment in the new lounge area, additional disabled toilet and improved rear entrance which it is hoped will start this year.

The estimated service charge paid to the Community Centre's landlord, Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) was over £25,500, or over £2,000 a month. Lettings income was enough to meet this charge. The Centre has seen a decline in lettings income from CWaC itself but luckily this was more than offset by income from other users.

The Management Committee has worked hard to promote a range of live performances for a broad audience. The film nights have been particularly popular and profitable. The reintroduction of the Tarvin Summer Fete was a great success raising almost £2,000, and the Village Quiz, still going strong after over 30 years, raised over £700.

The Management Committee knows that to remain successful the Community Centre needs to offer a wide variety of events which residents want to support. This is a genuine challenge. The Centre has gone from strength to strength in recent years. The facilities have been improved and with luck this will continue to be the case, but to remain successful there must be support from local residents.
