A massive thank you to everyone who came along to support our second Big Book Sale and helped us to raise funds towards the running costs for the Centre. We received some very positive comments from people attending, with several saying they were amazed by the number and quality of the books. One of the comments on our Facebook page was “Fantastic effort! Well done to everyone involved. What an amazing group of volunteers.” The Tea Room was open all weekend and many visitors took the opportunity to enjoy a drink and a cake. We now look forward to our next Big Book Sale in the Autumn.
The long awaited Tottington Tea Room in the Tottington Centre and Community Library is to open on the 1st November.
Kelly-Ann Simister, owner of Bloomin’ Kitchen is to operate the Tea Room and said “I am very much looking forward to opening the Tea Room in this wonderful Grade 2 listed building, getting to know the visitors whilst bringing a new Tea Room twist to Tottington. I will be offering a selection of fresh light bites and homemade daily specials”.
Spookily the Tea Room is said to mysteriously open for a sneak preview and ghoulish food such as Pumpkin Soup (fresh from the witch’s cauldron), Black Peas, Parkin and Pumpkin Spiced Scones.
Come and join the freakish family fun at the Tottington Centre on Sunday the 28th October from 12pm-4pm. It’ll be fangtastic!
The Tottington Centre has been chosen as one of Tesco’s three local charities.

The more tokens we get in our box .. the more money Tesco will give us. It is as simple as that.
So please keep shopping at Tesco and dropping your token in our box …. right up till the end of October … when the winner will be announced.
A sign to acknowledge the importance which Tottington Public Band have made to Tottington’s history was unveiled today at The Tottington Centre and Community Library. The band are one of the longest established public bands in the country. Records show they first played officially on 29th May 1835 for the Whit Walks at the Methodist Church – however they played informally in the early 1800s!
The Tottington Centre has welcomed its 1000th member to join since opening on 19th February. Bruno Mendoza Creswell who is just 2 years old is bilingual – speaking both English and Spanish. Bruno, accompanied by his mum Sophie, was presented with a book token to mark the occasion.
