Christmas Market 2018

The annual pantomime has now become a fixture in village life and the Community Centre is delighted that Aladdin on Saturday afternoon (Dec 1st) proved as popular as earlier shows. There was a limit of 180 tickets available, and though there did seem to be a slow patch a couple of weeks ago, in the end, all were sold.

The event now attracts families from neighbouring villages as well as Tarvin families excited to start the Christmas season. Bitsize Theatre form Wrexham continues to supply a professional, colourful and accessible show with all the traditional trimmings.

Of course, getting the Hall ready is not an easy task. After the departure of Rugby Tots at noon, there was just 2 ΒΌ hours to get the space ready. To ensure that everyone has an unobstructed view, the heavy staging belonging to Ashton Hayes Theatre Club is used to raise part of the audience. Sturdy but heavy, assembling this has proved an increasing problem for aging Committee members. This year several younger and fitter individuals came along, and the problem was dealt with promptly and with an ease that amazed the Committee. A big thank you to all those, young and old, who came to help.

After all the excitement of Aladdin, the Christmas Market provided a lively evening as always. The Community Centre stall sold 80 copies of the Christmas Quiz, a fun way to exercise the brain cells over the holiday. (If you would like a copy, contact 01829 741962) The stall also provided a chance for Committee members to talk to people about what goes on and to remind the village of the role that the Centre plays.

As a final coda to all these activities, on Sunday the Centre was delighted to welcome a family party in the Lounge to celebrate a christening. Chair Alan Wilkinson commented "This weekend was a wonderful example of the importance the Centre plays in village life. Yes, it is demanding work at times, but with the help and support of lots of people and their willingness to participate, we plan to be at the heart of the village for a while longer"
