Tudorville Residents Association are on the point of taking
over the Youth Centre in Tudorville, opening it as as a
Community Centre which is available to everybody. A Fun
Day took place in the building on Saturday, 2nd September
at which children enjoyed themselves while adults met as
part of a feasibility study to discuss and find out what
the people of Tudorville want from the hall, including how
it is going to be decorated.
Youth Club no longer wish to have sole control of the community
building. They still wish to use it but have passed control
to the Residents' Association, who will share future usage
with toddler groups, youth club, sports clubs, senior citizens
and general hobby clubs.
free raffle took place at Saturday's Fun Day, with prizes
of a case of wine for the adults and cuddly toys for the
children. There was a bouncy castle outside for younger
visitors and a competition to name the centre was held.
A demonstration was given by Tudorville Boxing Club, who
now regularly use the hall as a club venue.

Matt to Cheltenham for his regular visits and other miscellaneous

together over the weekend and on Monday and I have still
not had time to process all of last week's photos. I usually

at the Flower Festival and at the Summer Music Spectacular,
