New era for Tarvin Community Centre


TARVIN Community Centre has signed a new lease with Cheshire West and Chester Council that will secure the future of the building and its users for the next 25 years.


Officially opening in 1976 as a part of the newly-built infant school, Tarvin Community Centre has always played an important part in village life as the centre for village activities and is run by a committee of volunteers.


With the lease secured the Community Centre is to seek grant funding to embark on a new development programme designed by its dedicated committee to bring into community-use a large storage area with the provision of a bar and lounge.


The lease signing was celebrated with a special reception at the centre, based on the village’s Meadow Close.


Alan Wilkinson, chairman of the management committee says ‘Like many such organisations, Tarvin Community Centre has had its ups and downs but in the last five years has become thriving and profitable once again.


“It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this point. The Centre is in use nearly every day and the income from


this is vital to pay our share of the everyday running costs, roughly £23,000 a year.


“As well as our regular activities we put on a series of events to raise funds so that we can keep on improving facilities. The security of a long lease is vital to this work.”


From ballet classes to keep fit, flower arranging to Parish Council meetings and Women’s Institute evenings to private parties, the Community Centre provides excellent facilities including full disabled access, off-street parking and free WiFi.


There is a thriving local library service and the centre is an enthusiastic promoter of performances sponsored by Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. It has recently started a Friday Family Film night to great acclaim, with two separate films for family and adult audiences.


The centre will welcome Nottingham Playhouse for the first time on 31st May for the next Cheshire Rural Touring Arts production ‘The Second Minute’.
