Tarvin Community Centre

I am delighted to say that Tarvin Community Centre has finally got its Facebook page up and running. I wish I could say that it was all down to me but the thanks must go to a delightful young lady called Kat Lacey, who has finally succeeded in planting us firmly in the 21st century!
To encourage people to join our page we are running a raffle. When the number of 'likes' reaches 100, a winner will be chosen from those pioneering people and a bottle of excellent champagne will be theirs. The champagne, Landon Black Label, was recently donated by the Co-op. I am not quite sure if this raffle is done by some special electronic magic, or by pulling a name out of a hat, but for this, as for most of the things to do with Facebook, we will be guided by Kat.
Our indefatigable Chairman, Alan Wilkinson, bumped into Kat some weeks ago at the Toddlers Group and during their conversation Kat mentioned that she not only had professional marketing experience but was happy to be of help to the Committee. There was a slight delay between this conversation and the starting of the Facebook page, but even I accept that having a baby is a great excuse.
Facebook is one of the ways many younger people receive information and communicate with each other and with the world. We have already got 63 friends in just a week or two, yet already we have had an enquiry about booking the Centre from one organization and have had a number of messages of support from a wide area. The information we wish to get across to people about activities in the Centre can be accessed at any time, anywhere thanks to the increasing use of mobile phones.
So, if you are on Facebook, please do go and take a look and 'like' us — that champagne has to be won by somebody and it could be you!
