Tarvin Community Centre - Shed Construction Starts

Work has begun on the new timber storage shed to the rear of the Community Centre. The ground clearance and the construction of the concrete base should be completed by Christmas, weather permitting, with the structure being completed early in the new year.

Alan Wilkinson, Chair of the Community Centre Committee says "To be precise, this is NOT a shed for storing timber, but a shed constructed of timber! Half of the space will be rented out at a modest cost to Ashton Hayes Theatre Club so that they can store their costumes and props in a safe and dry place. The rest will be used as storage for a range of items that currently clutter parts of the Centre".

One benefit from the extra storage space will be the reduction of items stored under the stage. Though this space is large it is extremely difficult to access items that get put to the rear. The spare blue-seat chairs will also go there, freeing up space that is currently being considered as an occasional office for the PCSO.

Two trees have been removed, and the planning consent obtained requires that three replacements be planted after completion. The walls of the shed will be painted green, and shrubs will be planted along the rear wall to soften the visual impact that the building will have on near neighbours.

The cost of this extension is coming out of Community Centre funds which have been accumulated from the high level of use the Centre gets. Alan says "We are delighted that we can demonstrate to the community that their support is being acknowledged by improvements to the building. We would also like to thank CW&C, our landlords, who have been very supportive of all the changes we are planning for their building."

The Committee are also drawing up plans to apply for grants for major improvements to the Main Hall.

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
