Tennis open day

In less than 5 weeks time on Saturday, 17 June, Tarvin Tennis Club will celebrate its 50th Anniversary with a dinner to be held at the Tarvin Community Centre. The Club hopes that it will be one of the most significant and enjoyable social events in Tarvin in 2017, and it is anxious that as many local people as possible come along — there are many former members still living in the village — to enjoy the evening.

In addition to a 3 course meal, a drink will be served on arrival and there will also be live music.

It will be fascinating to see how the Club and its facilities have developed over the years and for people to recognise how, through the efforts of Club members, the Club now offers some of the best tennis facilities in the area.

Prior to the dinner the Club will be open for local people to visit the new clubhouse which has been largely provided through a very generous grant from Sport England. Those wishing to play tennis will be very welcome.

Tickets for the dinner which are £22/head can be obtained by contacting Rob Millar on 01829 741314 or Margaret Dixon on 01829 740665.

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...
