The Community Centre Committee is delighted to announce that they are to receive a total of £3,029.00 from the local Co-op Community Fund. This money comes from the decision by many local Co-op members to make the Community Centre its chosen charity, and from an equal division of unallocated monies between the three nominated organisations.

Vice-Chair Sue Hardacre said " We are really pleased with the level of support we have received and would like to say a big 'thank you' to everyone who nominated us as their charity. The money will go towards the provision of new carpeting in the foyers and help towards the cost of renovating the Hall floor".

The Community Centre is not one of the charities to receive support this year, Save the Family, Tarvin AC and Tarvin Pre-School have been chosen. To find out how you can support a local good cause go to www.coop.co.uk The Co-op will be distributing over £17 million pounds to 4000+ local good causes throughout Great Britain this year. As well as providing a well-used retail outlet, the Tarvin Co-op has made itself a valued part of the local scene.
