Thank You Testimonials

"Dear Alan,

I am writing on behalf of Nicholson Court to thank you for the Tideswell and District Community Association's generous contribution to our new garden furniture. Please accept my apologies for not replying earlier, but I wanted to wait until we had actually purchased the new furniture and got it installed and in use. The residents eventually opted for metal framed furniture with removable cushions as requiring minimal maintenance and the actual style chosen was particularly good value, it enabled us to purchase two sets of tables and four chairs with parasol as well as a swing seat.

The overall effect on our new terrace is rather pleasing as you may have seen from photographs posted on the Tideswell People Unleashed Facebook page recently, which received a massive amount of 'Likes'. Our first occasion to use the furniture was an impromptu 'Pimms' party which had a good turnout including three residents who don't normally leave their flats. We hope to enjoy more of these occasions, barbecues as the weather permits. I hope some of the TDCA members come out to our open day on the 29th June, and weather permitting there may even become more 'Pimms'"

" Dear Tideswell and District Community Association,

Thank you so much for your very generous support for a wildflower meadow for Tideswell. Now we just need to prey for the perfect amount of rain and sunshine to give a fabulous display this year, and for years to come.

It will be a delight if we can start to attract butterflies and bees and re-establish native wildflowers on Weston Bank. We hope we can create something that all of Tideswell can enjoy"

Tideswell Community Orchard and the Wildflower Meadow Group - 2018

" Dear TDCA Committee

This is an official thank you from the Tideswell Community Players for your kind donation of £177, which we have used for the purchase of an LED floodlight. We are trying to modernise our lighting system, and when we have changed all our lights to LED, it will mean that we can use them in any venue, as the LEDs do not draw as much current.

If the TDCA wishes to use the lights at any time when we are not doing a Play, they are very welcome (They are not suitable for outdoor use). We are currently trying to purchase some staging which hopefully, should be delivered next year and if you or any associated group would like to use it you are welcome to borrow that too (as long as it doesn't clash with a Play)

Thanks once again and quite literally your kind donation has lit up our world"

Rob Puckett and Ceri Royal - Co-Chairs Tideswell Players - 2017

" On behalf of the band, we would like to thank you for the cheque received. The band really enjoyed being a part of such a successful evening, and we thank all the TDCA committee for all their hard work in pulling the event together. We would most definitely like to be a part of a repeat Proms concert in 2017. and once you have some dates in mind, please let us know"
Libs Slattery - Treasurer - Tideswell Band - 2016

" Many thanks for your previous generous support of the Tideswell Allotment Association Open Show. Last year, despite another poor growing season, it was a great success with over 50 exhibitors, along with Tideswell Band playing for an hour before the award ceremony bringing many visitors from Tideswell and further afield."
Alan Dowling - Chair - Tideswell Allotment Association - 2016 - £30.00

" The Parish Council has asked me to write to you, to thank all the TDCA for their participation in this year's Remembrance Parade. We have had overwhelming positive feedback from this year's Parade and we really want to thank you all for being such an integral part of the Parade again."
Hannah Owen - Clerk - Tideswell Parish Council - 2016
