What is a Community Association?

Basically the Tideswell & District Community Association is an umbrella body based in the local community that supports other community organisations.  Our proposed constitution can be found here.

What can it do?

It can raise money, give out grants, work on its own account to provide things for the community or work with other bodies to do so.

When does the Committee meet?

We get together around six times a year. Details of the next meeting can be obtained from the Secretary, Maureen Douglas: maureen.douglas@hotmail.com

Who’s on the Committee?

TDCA has a President, a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary, and a small committee. We are always happy to welcome new people to join us on the committee. President: Julia Fell Chair: Amanda Cookson Treasurer: Alan Brignall Secretary: Maureen Douglas

What has TDCA done for the area?

The Tideswell & District Community Association has been around for more than 21 years. We have raised money and given grants to many local organisations, such as Pre-School, Tideswell School, Living History Project, Visit Tideswell Accommodation Group, Tideswell Allotment Association, Fountain Square Church Flower Show & St John’s Ambulance. We also started off the Sports Association and are still the accountable body. We also add colour to Tideswell by planting some wooden troughs with some blooming lovely plants. These are distributed round the village and kept watered and tidy by people close by. Newcomers to the area can have a “Welcome Pack” that we have put together. It contains lots of vital information about local groups, useful telephone numbers, and where to go for all your essentials. It is available for collection at Peaches Fruit & Vegetable Shop or contact Dorothy Whitehouse 871661
