Tarvin Community Centre Committee are delighted to announce that they are now in a position to sign the contract for major redevelopment work to begin. The contract is with Novus Property Solutions and the work on site should commence within four weeks. The completion of the plans, which will turn a large storage space into a lounge area, should be complete by the autumn.
Alan Wilkinson, Chair of the Committee said "This is the culmination of many months of hard work by the Committee and the new space will allow more members of the community to come together and enjoy themselves for both leisure and learning. The Centre is currently bursting at the seams with over 40 regular users and the new lounge will increase our capacity and flexibility greatly"
The funding has been obtained from WREN, a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FFC Environment through the Landfill Communities Trust. Significant contributions were also received from the Garfield Westin Foundation and the Williams Family Foundation. There were also smaller, but vital contributions from Tarvin Parish Council and from local resident Mr J Wright. The Community Centre Committee has also worked hard to build up a fund from their own resources to complete the budget for this major piece of development.
Mr Richard Smith, Grant Manager for WREN says: "It's always nice to see something we have funded start to take shape. We're delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile project and look forward to it benefiting the community of Tarvin for many years to come."
