Tidworth Community Area Partnership Update and Funding Request

To receive an update from the Tidworth Community Area Partnership, including the work of the Thematic Groups, and to consider a request for the first tranche of funding.



Tony Pickernell, Tidworth Community Area Partnership (TCAP) Coordinator, provided an update on the Partnership’s activities since the last meeting. This included the following:


·         Tony was currently in the process of visiting each parish and town council in the Community Area to talk about the work of TCAP and explain how they could become more involved.

·         An event hosted by Hampshire Council regarding funding sources had proved to be very informative.

·         A ‘Blue Light Day’ was being held at Tidworth Leisure Centre on 26 August.

·         Also being held was a concert at the theatre in Tidworth to raise funds for allocation to small local projects and events.

·         A Christmas pantomime for local schools was being organised.

·         A band workshop had been successfully held with over 200 local children in attendance.

·         The thematic groups of TCAP were mostly up and running and working well, and work was underway to re-establish the remaining groups which had lapsed.


Col. Paddy Tabor of TCAP announced that the Partnership had formally submitted a request for its first tranche of funding. The Chairman explained that the Partnership was entitled to 20% of the Area Board’s funding budget, and the first tranche of this equated to £5,000.



Tidworth Community Area Partnership was awarded its first tranche of core funding for 2010/11 of £5,000.


The Chairman commented that it was good to see such an active Community Area Partnership and encouraged people to become involved.
