Controller for new lighting system

The Community Centre is delighted to announce that they have upgraded the lighting system and can now offer customers a range of specialist lighting effects to complement any event. New multi coloured LED lights can now illuminate the stage, and two clusters of adjustable lights within the Hall that can give white/red/and blue tones to create different moods.

The Hall also boast lines of coloured LED strips just under the walkway that can be easily adjusted for multiple effects from controls by the light switches. (see picture)

The system has been installed by Alun Williams of CSP Audio Visual Ltd based in Saltney. A Tarvin resident, Alun runs a very successful company providing technical support for large scale events nationwide. With his expertise he has installed a system that is simple to use and efficient to run. Alun's commitment to the Centre and the village was also reflected in the highly competitive price he offered to the Committee.

Chairman Alan Wilkinson said "We have been delighted with the work that has been done and with the effects that have been achieved. Alan has advised on lighting for several occasions and he has expressed a willingness to help us when any special effects are required. As we get to know the system, it will be adapted to give us the widest range of lighting effects. We are extremely grateful for his involvement. I believe that the Tarvin Community Centre is now as well-equipped as any venue in the county for arts and social events."

The new system will run independently from the ceiling-hung theatre-style lights that belong to Ashton Hayes Theatre Club. The first events that will make use of the lights will be Bonkers Bingo for the Pre-School on May 11th and the George Heath Foundation Celebration Evening on May 18th.

Ten years ago, Jim Grogan discovered that there is an award for well-run community woodlands and he thought it would be a good idea if our woodland applied. He was successful and we have been successful every year since then. This is an award that the whole community should be proud of and share. The Woodland has been funded by the community via the Annual Plant Sale, the...
