A-Frame Returns to the High Street

Home » Newsroom » A-Frame Returns to the High Street

Tarvin Community Centre is pleased to announce the re-appearance of the A-Frame outside the Post Office after a break over the Christmas season. The frame will carry information about Community Centre events, and, if there is room, other events of interest to the village.

Sue Hardacre, who is responsible for the frame, says "The location of the Community Centre means that there is very little general footfall past it, so getting information across can be difficult. The frame has proved very valuable asset in bringing news to a wide cross-section of the public".

The current frame is the fourth version — one was blown over in strong wind, one suffered an attack of excessive exuberance in the middle of the night and one broke. The current one has been very kindly donated by resident Luke Judge, who runs The Hub Fitness based at Sheaf Farm. This replaces one that was donated by Mr and Mrs Kumar at the Post Office and the Committee would like to thank them both for their generosity.

The success of the A-Frame also depends on the role the Post Office plays in acting as a Box Office. Seeing an event advertised and being able to buy a ticket easily without having to ring someone up has been a boost to ticket sales for such things as plays, films and concerts.

The A-Frame is usually out 6 days a week. If you are planning an event at the Community Centre please do get your advertising information to Sue ( 01829 741962) who will make sure that it goes on the A-Frame to spread the word as far as possible.
