The future of the Tibberton Church Room discussion

6.30pm Monday 13th May 2024 at the Tibberton Church Room

The church room is the property of and managed by the Parochial Church Council (PCC), it is a unique heritage asset in the centre of the village, used by clubs, societies, a local toddler group as well as for church events and meetings.  The PCC pay each year for regular maintenance, upkeep and insurance of the church room, but as it is now over a hundred years old it could really do with some more significant updating.

The Parish Council and the Parochial Church council have been discussing whether effort should be put into grant applications to raise further funds to update this facility (possibly damp proofing, a new kitchen, audio visual facilities etc), or to simply carry on with just essential maintenance.

We are fortunate enough to have two nearby modern village hall facilities both of which can also be used for meetings and events.

The PCC and Parish council would therefore be interested to hear the views of users and parishioners.

Tibberton Parish Councill meeting will follow afterwards at 7.30pm

Any queries or questions, please contact the Clerk.

Mumbo-Jumbo Review

The flyer said  ‘Four Hands and a Horn’ which could have covered a multitude of possibilities. On a gusty Spring Saturday evening, a good crowd of hopefuls gathered to hear these hitherto unknown musicians treat us to a myriad of musical styles. Who could have known that two keyboard players and a brass player would produce such original and thought provoking songs, wonderful blues, soul, jazz and folk music, just to name a few genres? These are talented musicians and fully deserve the appreciation given to them by the audience. The only criticism, constantly voiced was: ‘I want to get up and dance’!
This is the second live music event held in recent months and we must support these heroes who tote their genius around small venues in order to entertain us.

Graffiti Classics Review

“A great evening out…”

The first LIVE concert at the Taynton & Tibberton Village Hall since COVID proved to be a great evening event on Friday 26th January 2024.

“Graffiti Classics entertained with style and humour”

Three talented violinist lead by an energetic Irish double base player entertained a full house with classical hits including Beethoven ‘Elise’, Pachelbel Canon…, along with humorous renditions of ‘O Sole Mio’, ‘Blue Danube’ and interspersed Irish themes of ‘Danny Boy’ and ‘Seven drunken nights’.

Thanks went out to all involved in putting on a great local evening of entertainment.The newly installed lighting raised the atmosphere and the loosely coordinated audience participation made for an enjoyable evening in our village hall.
