New Roof Appeal

Our roof is now approaching 60 years old and has suffered many leaks in recent years.

It is now in urgent need of complete renewal but the opportunity will be taken to improve thermal insulation
to reduce heating bills and add sound insulation to the ceiling to improve the acoustics in the Main Hall.
It will be partly funded from reserves and room hire but we will need further funds from grants and/or fund-raising
events such as TarpFest to complete the project which is expected to be carried out over 6 weeks in Summer 2020.
For further information please see our publicity flyer.

Following the launch of our ‘Raise the Roof' Appeal - we now have a Just Giving page.
So far, we have received donations of £490 - so that's 49 tiles bought - only 7,201 to go!
Thank you to everyone who has donated and if you want to donate, there are 3 ways :
Buy a tile (or more than one) on our Just Giving page

The Committee is aware that a number of potholes have
appeared in the car park especially around the turning area.
We are looking into repairing the surface and will post further updates.

Damage to Main hall floor

The Main hall floor was refurbished in Aug 2016 but is already
showing signs of deterioration caused by inappropriate footwear.

An area near the serving hatch was especially damaged by
either studded sports shoes or badly worn stiletto heels.

Please ensure that further damage is prevented
by not allowing inappropriate footwear at your event.

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

Please email : for training

New Parking Restrictions
Start date 30th January 2017

Several groups have complained about the lack of available
parking spaces in the car park when attending events at TCC.

To address this issue, we will shortly introduce :
a 3 hour time limit with no return within 1 hour
controlled by CW&C Mon to Sun 8 am to 6 pm
see Tarporley News

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

Picnic Tables

Four picnic tables were recently installed on the
Community Centre field for use by the local community.

They were purchased with funds provided by the local Co-operative community fund but after only a few days, one has already been
severely damaged by fire.

If you have any information regarding this crime, please email us at : or contact the local police
who are already investigating the incident.

Tarporley News Article - December 2018

Tarporley Community Centre has been successful in being chosen as one of the Co-Ops Local Fund charities for the coming year.

This money is going to be used to further improve the Audio System and Acoustics of the Community Centres Main Hall.

Tarporley Community Centre have been working with Tarporley & District U3A on this and over the Summer,
new curtains were installed which act as both blackout and noise reducing curtains. Some noise deadening tiles have
also been installed and we will be installing more tiles once we have replaced our roof, which is our next major project.

Before then, with the continued support of Tarporley & District U3A we will be improving the audio system which will comprise
of installing new speakers, mixers and amplifiers. This will cost several thousands of pounds. We shall also be contacting
other local organisations who regularly hire our Main Hall to request their support and financial assistance with this.

As doing this will provide a better facility for all users of the Community Centre, we hope that you will choose us as
the Co-Op Local Fund charity you support.

If you would like to find out more about Tarporley Community Centre or wish to get involved with the Charity/Us
you can either view (this website) / or contact myself by email at or by phone on 0781 4089666.

New Defibrillator Installed

Our local First Responder Mr. Jeremy Mills gave much useful advice during the project, and acted as the liaison person with the
North West Ambulance Service. The defibrillator is now registered with the Ambulance Service control, and in the case of a 999
call relating to a collapsed patient, the caller will be told of the location and the keycode to gain access to the defibrillator.
The unit is "smart" and gives voice instructions, so any member of the public can use it.

Jeremy has offered to give training in resuscitation and defibrillator use to Community Centre users, with the objective
of ensuring that every group using the centre will include at least two trained personnel. The training is currently being organised.

The attached photo shows the defibrillator being installed in the cabinet by (left to right) Rob Hussey (NWAS),
Angela Yeates (Management Committee member), Linda Martin (Chair of Management Committee) and
Jeremy Mills (Tarporley First Responder). Linda has agreed to be the "Guardian" and Angela the "Deputy Guardian"
to routinely check the defibrillator and act as the liaison point with NWAS.
Management Committee members Anita Langford, Judith Oates and Tony Yeates were also present at the handover.
We would also like to extend our thanks to Robin Ford for tendering the installation work,
and to village electrician Brian Rathbone who installed the cabinet at short notice.
