TVCA logoWho we are and what we do

The Association is a group of people who arrange community activities in the three villages of Birch, Layer Breton and Layer Marney. Social events are organised with the aims of bringing local people together for enjoyment and fun, to foster a greater sense of community in our villages and to raise funds to enhance local facilities for people of all ages living in our catchment area.

All the activities of the Association are organised and run by a group of unpaid volunteers. Everyone living in our villages is warmly invited to attend and join in our events. We also welcome any who would like to help - there are various ways in which you can assist - even basic tasks like setting up or clearing away things in the Hall, cooking, washing up, gardening and litter picking. If you would like to know more or offer your services, please contact any of the following:

Elaine Bowtle (Chair) Tel: 330388
Marian Campion (Secretary) Tel: 331327
Carol Ninnim (Treasurer) Tel: 331477
Chris Boyce Tel: 330275

Information about TVCA events is regularly published in Parish News which is delivered each month to every house in our three villages.
