After 20 years, Blackburn TARA closes
Posted: 31 August 2017
20 years ago, the group came together over shared concerns in the local area. The aim was always to make Blackburn a better place to live. A lot of things have been achieved included the regular Drop-In. Summer and Christmas fetes have been held, day trips run and various exercise classes hosted.
Val Baldwin, Mary Jacques and the committee were thanked for their contribution to the local community and Mary Maxfield from Blackburn Youth Club announced that a special bench will be installed outside to mark their contribution to Blackburn over the years.
The TARA has been always an active member of Rotherham Federation and their closure will be a great loss for tenants.
