The Parish Council has been asked by the Tarvin Tennis Club to offer their support in their bid to obtain funding for floodlighting, (and a new clubhouse), which will enable the club to offer more playing and coaching time for youngsters in spring and autumn.
The Tennis Club occupies land on The King George V Playing Field of which the Parish Council is the Trustee.
The Parish Council was somewhat taken aback by the speed at which this request had arrived, coming as it did without any prior consultation with themselves or the residents of Crossfields who might be affected by the new lighting. However, they did recognize that the opportunity to take advantage of some Olympic Legacy funding has happened suddenly and needed to be seized quickly.
The Parish Council has a duty to encourage the improvement of the Playing Field facilities and would not wish to stand in the way of a successful local organization. It also noted, with some regret however, that that the majority of the Tennis Club members come from outside the Parish. The Parish Council agreed to support the Tennis Club in principle, and would reserve its comments on the actual work proposed for when, and if, the bid is successful. It is understood that formal planning permission will need to be applied for before any work can be carried out.
