TIBSHELF VILLAGE HALL
We Need Your Support
Tibshelf Parish Council are undertaking a major community consultation on proposals to extend Tibshelf Village Hall.
To meet needs we want to improve the facilities by constructing a new extension to provide a second hall and meeting space.
In recognition of the loss of a valued facility in the village, we are also looking at the feasibility of providing gym facilities , either as part of the extension or in a seperate building.
We can only acheive this with your help, comments and ideas.
A questionnaire has been distributed with the Parish Newsletter and we strongly encourage you to fill this in to support the evidence of need. We need your feedback to support applications to funders and investors. If you haven't seen our newsletter yet you can access a copy of Tibshelf News here and you can also download the Questionnaire here.
Your completed questionnaire can be dropped off at the Village Hall, the Post Office or the Cooperative Store. You can also hand it to Adam Jeffrey, (who is carrying out the consultation for us) at Tibshelf Carnival on 23rd July at Tibshelf Sports Ground
FUN, FAMILY CHALLENGE
WELCOME TO TIBSHELF PARISH COUNCIL'S WEBSITE
Tibshelf, and the surrounding areas, have had a colourful and varied past and have been important for mining, quarrying, medicinal springs and horticulture.
In 1550 several shallow mines, one of which was owned by Bess of Hardwick, were opened in the area, starting a trend, which was to see coal mining overtake agriculture as the main industry. By the 19th century, two deep mines were in operation and a main line rail network developed to support the transport of both passengers and coal . Tibshelf’s claim to fame was also based on the fact that Britain’s first inland oil well was sunk on the outskirts of the village.
In recent years the village economy has changed radically with the closure of the local collieries and the railway. Today the village provides good educational and leisure facilities, and a pleasant rural home for 3400 people within a short distance of the Peak District National Park, Sherwood Forest and The Dukeries. Because of the close proximity of the M1 motorway, and the links to the west provided by the A38, Tibshelf is ideally situated for commuting to Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield or even further a field.
Further information about Tibshelf can be found on the Tibshelf Past and Present section of this website. Our thanks to Tibshelf Local History and Civic Society who continually maintain and update this page on our website.
