Our group (Friends of Tewin) organises events for the enjoyment and benefit of the village. We were formed in 2001, developing out of a committee that was created in 1998 to plan events to celebrate the Millenium. The activities organised were enjoyed so much it was decided to continue and since then we have gone from strength to strength.
Our aim is to organise events for the enjoyment of Tewin's residents and to raise funds to assist community projects and organisations within the parish.
Some events are organised annually and have become a regular part of village life, for example, Senior Citizens Lunch in February, Maypole Dancing by the children of Tewin Cowper School, Classic Car & Craft Show in August and the Carols on the Green in December.
SENIOR CITIZENS' LUNCH - 15th FEBRUARY
Our first event of the year was the Senior Citizens Lunch which was held on 15th February 2017. It was a very busy but really enjoyable day and we were delighted to welcome approximately 90 people to Tewin Memorial Hall. Our senior guests sat down to enjoy a lunch of either coq au vin or salmon, followed by a dessert of lemon flan or pineapple upside-down pudding.
After lunch we were delighted to welcome a local lady, singer Aimi Percival, everyone enjoyed listening to her very much. We followed this with a quiz to round off the afternoon.
We also delivered 5 meals to the homes of people who weren’t able to attend.
We had some very kind comments from people telling us what a great afternoon they had and we were pleased it was such a success; it makes all the planning even more worthwhile.
Once again we had many people to help which made a big difference and we were able to serve the food while it was still nice and hot. We want to thank everyone who helped to set up the Hall, serve the lunch, wash up the mountain of dishes and also deliver the meals. We couldn’t have managed without you.
DANCING AROUND THE MAYPOLE - 28th APRIL
We were thrilled when the sun shone down on us for the Maypole Dancing. Besides the sunshine, it was also a very calm day so the children easily compleed all the dances they had been practising so hard. It is lovely to see the children of Tewin Cowper School perform their dances and our thanks go to their teachers for helping them learn the intricate moves involved. We had quite a crowd of people who came to watch the dancing, enjoy the sunshine and chat to their friends.
