Appeal for information
Deliberate damage to Tarporley Community Centre new roof
The new roof has been seriously damaged for the second time by persons unknown. From the nature of the damage it looks
as if the
roof has been jumped on with the intention of breaking the tiles.
The police and other authorities have been informed and everybody
is asked to look out for anything suspicious happening.
This has happened at a time when the Centre has just reopened for the benefit of the community but is operating with a significant loss
Proposed wildflower area
Thanks to a £250 grant from Councillor
Eveleigh Moore Dutton, the
Community Centre Trustees were proposing to establish a wild flower meadow in the strip of ground between the field path and Churchill Drive. The grass and weeds have been treated with weedkiller and it was
planned to rotavate the area and sow with wild flower seed shortly.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic Government restrictions
and the shutdown of seed suppliers this work has had to stop.
We apologise for the present appearance of the area
Volunteers urgently needed
Tarporley Community Centre and Recreation Ground is an independent
charity registered with the Charities Commission (number 1040034).
Nearly all the income comes from the letting of rooms, with only limited
grant support from Tarporley Parish Council (annually for the field)
West and Chester (quarterly for the car park).
The present Trustees have been very busy with this re-development for the last
two years and are proud of the results. However most of the Trustees have
been in post for a decade or more and new talent is urgently
We are looking for expertise in the following areas :
- Governance including compliance with all Legislation
- Finance and book keeping
- Website and publicity
- Operation of the on-line bookings system
- Maintenance inspection
- Project management
- Supervision of cleaning contractor
- Meeting and greeting new hirers
If you would be interested in volunteering please email the Trustees

Picnic tables & anti social behaviour
Unfortunately, after many reports of late night drinking, noise, other antisocial behaviour and disregard for social distancing, the
picnic tables have
been temporarily removed.
They may be returned to a different location on the field when the
situation improves - this will be kept under review.

Dogs on the Field
The Community Centre field or playing field as it is known is owned by the Community Centre. The Community Centre Trustees received complaints about dog mess on the field / football pitch and because of concerns
about Toxocariasis and the refusal of some owners to pick-up, we
eventually decided to restrict dogs from the field. Signs were erected but dogs are still allowed on the path if on a lead and any mess is picked-up.
The PARISH COUNCIL have confirmed that they fully support
the position adopted by the Trustees.
Several groups complained about the lack of available
parking spaces in the car park when attending events at TCC.
To address this issue, we introduced a 3 hour time limit with no
return within 1 hour - controlled by CW&C Mon to Sun 8 am to 6 pm
To guarantee extended parking periods for users who can justify it,
we will issue a limited number of day and annual parking permits.
These will be specific to user group, car reg and will have an expiry date

New Defibrillator Installed
Tarporley Village has just been equipped with a heart defibrillator
which can be accessed by any member of the public on dialling 999.
The defibrillator is located in a yellow box on the North side wall
of the Centre and is illuminated by a light from dusk to dawn.
The cabinet is internally heated to keep the kit in working order.
The defibrillator and cabinet were made possible by a very
generous, anonymous donation, together with smaller donations
from Community Centre user groups - more info below
