TDCA Working For The Village
IMPORTANT: This site is also intended to provide an informal information portal for all things Tideswell for residents and people new to the area..
What do we do?
Through 'fun events' and other activities the TDCA raises money to support local non-profit groups on a grants basis. In addition the TDCA also works with other partner groups in the village such as the Tideswell Parish Council with a general look to improve the quality of life in the village for all residents and visitors, by providing things such as entertainment featuring home-grown village talent, through to improving the village generally by installing flower displays and also assisting with village Christmas lights.
As the world slowly returns to something approximating pre-covid normality the TDCA is looking forward re-introducing our programme of events, starting on a small scale with the 'Proms In The Park' event on Saturday 25th September 2pm onwards on the sports ground in front of the pavilion. MORE INFO

The TDCA Team
Sandra Howard joined the TDCA in 1996 serving as secretary until 2014, becoming elected chair in 2015. Sandra has been heavily involved in a number of hugely time-consuming projects including the Sports Complex project which was initially headed up by Eric Simpson with Sandra being secretary during the Lottery application. It was under Sandra’s time that the very popular Tideswell Proms was introduced which we are hoping will return in full in 2022. After an impressive 25 years-service to the TDCA Sandra stepped down as Chair in August 2021 but remains a much-valued committee member.
Taking over the reigns from Sandra Howard is Bernard O’Sullivan, who moved to Tideswell in 2014 and from the onset felt it was important to contribute to village activities. He joined the TDCA association in 2016 and became chair in August this year. Bernard told the VV in 2021 that “Sandra’s achievements as chair will be a very hard act to follow, and trying to emulate her stewardship is quite a daunting prospect, but I believe that a vibrant active community spirit is only achieved through our volunteers and through the support of the wider village, please help us to support the village”
The TDCA welcomes applications from local clubs and associations, for more information please email the TDCA directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
