Kimberworth Park TARA
David Senior and Kimberworth Park TARA were successfully nominated for the Excellence in Community Action Award at TPAS in Manchester on Friday 16th March 2018.
The TARA are now in the process of relocating to a new base.
We at Kimberworth Park Tenants and Residents Association hold many activities during the year which involves members of the public, we operate from the Tenants Hall on St Johns Green (to the rear of the housing office) and are open on Monday’s, Tuesday’s and Wednesday, 9 am till 12pm where we run a cafe serving food including breakfast, sandwiches, tea and coffee. Our café offers great value for money and we offer a range of different sandwiches and drinks.
We sell clothes and bric-a-brac which have been donated by members of the community, all the money we raise through that goes to fund various activities we do throughout. This year we have had charity days where all the money we make on the day is donated to a charity we support, recently we raised over £200 for children in need, which was a very good response from the local community.
We run up to 5 outings per year to which anyone living on Kimberworth Park can go on. We charge £8 for adults, £4 children and a family price for two adults and two children costs £24, this is cheaper than the local tour operators.
In addition we hold a fun day every year at St Johns Green as well as our free Christmas bingo afternoon and children’s Christmas party
We at the T.A.R.A are inclusive not exclusive we welcome people of all race and creed and have a wide mix of people of all races and ages.
