Tattenhall Community Association

Tattenhall Community Association (TCA) comprises a group of volunteer Trustees who are responsible for the Barbour Institute which is rented from the Bolesworth Estate. Those involved have raised funds for the substantial building and internal works that have taken place over recent years paying for the re-wiring, plumbing, underfloor heating, lighting and sound equipment and decorating amongst many other projects.  The most recent improvement to be completed is the refurbishment of the Bar Area.

The Bolesworth Estate, to which TCA pays a nominal rent, has also contributed to some of the major works including the new roof. The building has been sympathetically modernised to provide bright inviting rooms for the many activities which take place there.

As it is vital that the building is financially self-supporting,  TCA depends on the rental income from the many varied organisations and private bookings which use the rooms, and supplements this income with fundraising for specific projects.

About the Barbour Institute

The Barbour Institute was erected in 1898, by George Barbour in memory of his Mother, Janet Andrew Barbour.  Janet died in 1896 and in her will it was specified; ‘To the parish of Tattenhall, for the purpose of providing a public room for parish purposes, £500 to be laid out in such manner and to be vested in such persons as my son George shall determine’.
