About The TDCA

The TDCA was established in 1978 and is an umbrella body firmly based in the local community that offers support to community associations, sports clubs, societies and village events.

Read more about our
history, committee, and some of our achievements such as the sports complex.

Our Aims And Objectives

As stated elsewhere, the primary function of the TDCA is to raise funds to enable us to give grants to local associations in need of support. We do this by organising coffee mornings, a very successful bonfire and firework event, and hosting our very own Tideswell Last Night Of The Proms.

As well as organising events the
TDCA are also keen to improve the standard of life in the village. Without doubt, one of our crowning glories was the building of the sports complex which was achieved though a mixture of local fund raising, Lottery grants, support from patrons etc, but conceived of and driven by the TDCA.

TDCA Is also involved with providing flower baskets in the summer, village Christmas lights and organising a Defibrillator, which was sponsored in conjunction with a grant from the Derbyshire Dales Council for Voluntary Service (DDCVS) and installed by kind permission of the CoOp..

About TDCA Grants

As previously stated, the primary function of the TDCA is to raise funds to enable us to support local associations. We do this by organising an assortment of events from our flagship 'Tideswell Last Night Of The Proms' and a very successful bonfire and firework event, to more modest events such as coffee mornings.

However, occasionally a cause comes along that we select for special fund raising attention, you will find out more about our current flagship concern on this page.

Special Campaigns

TDCA fund raising activities are on-going for a wide variety of causes. However occasionally will adopt or focus on a particularly time-pressing or note-worthy cause, such as our Defibrillator campaign.

Green TDCA

The TDCA's 'raison d'etre' is to improve the quality of life for the village and naturally that includes environmental issues, read more about the green policy by using the link below.

Our History

The Association was originally formed in 1978 with the principal aim of providing a village hall for Tideswell. Although there were a number of places in the village where people could meet or hold events none of them was felt to be really big enough for a place the size of Tideswell and all lacked some facilities or had restrictions.

Our Team

The TDCA and all they achieve would not exist if it were not for the efforts of a dedicated committee of volunteers who give up their free time to make grants and fund-raising events such as 'Last Night Of The Proms' and 'Bonfire' night' possible.
