Somehow things in the Community Centre seem quieter in summer, but there is still the steady use of the two halls every week. It is this regular support that forms the bedrock of the Community Centre’s financial stability and we are delighted that so many organizations and individuals use our facilities. To add to the services on offer we now have free WiFi. Please ask a Committee member for the code if you need to use this while at the Centre.
The Family Film Nights continue to be a success and we plan to continue them throughout the autumn. So if you have young children do keep the last Friday of every month free. There may well be a show in August but we do not have confirmation of a film yet, so do look out for the A-frame in the village, visit our website www.tarvincommunitycentre.org or the new village website www.tarvononline.org
The Committee has been working with the wonderful Cheshire Rural Touring Arts organization to bring a couple of new shows to the village in the autumn. On October 18th out younger residents will be able to hear the very talented story-teller, Dommy B in ‘The Dragon who Hates Poetry’ and on Friday November 1st there will be a weird and wonderful show called ‘6 Impossible Things’ . Even the Committee is not quite sure what will be happening, as the show is being specially commissioned, but the company coming usually do street theatre and this is described as using music, magic and daring. It will be suitable for all ages so please do put these dates in your diary and watch out for further details.
Following our successful Junior Disco last year, we have arranged to repeat the event on November 15th.
Looking further into the future, the Community Centre Committee is working to support and sponsor a traditional Village Fete in July next year. At the moment we have a sub-committee of one, the incredible Jo Richards, who has already persuaded a large number of local organizations to participate. In September we hope that there will be a somewhat larger group formed to help Jo, so that this event, which will be to boost funds of both Community Centre and local organizations, can really develop momentum. So many people have expressed a wish that the Carnival of years gone by can be revived. This is the chance to get involved and make things happen. Go on, you know you want to!!.
