Clifton Team : 11th October 2017 19:38 : News

We are aware of postings on social media about the Dunelm buildings or you may have heard through word of mouth, that a proposal has been submitted to develop the former Clifton site into retail floor space and 52 residential dwellings.

Directors of the Clifton Community Arts Centre received individual invitations to a consultation to be held by the developers on Friday 13th October from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturday 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  At that time, no publicity had been made available to the general public.

We will be attending the consultation event where we aim to establish all the relevant facts and then report back to members (shareholders) once we have digested the information we will be provided with, so that we can form an opinion on how to proceed.
As such, we intend to report back to members early next week and will also post information on this web site and if appropriate, through social media.

Telford & Wrekin 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Clifton Team : 4th October 2017 15:19 : News

As you are probably aware, Telford & Wrekin Council have set aside funds to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Telford and have recently announced that they intend to release the first tranche of that funding in early 2018 and the application deadline for such a grant closes on 23rd October.

The release consists of grants up to £2,000 to fund projects in celebration.

We will be applying for an award and would like to hold a five series film festival in the last two weeks of February to hold films where there is a connection with the borough through arts, culture, media or sport.  The grant will enable us to hold the films free of charge except for one where we anticipate holding an afternoon tea as well which will be separately charged.

While we have provisionally identified five films from requests we already have we would encourage anybody from the local community to get in contact with us to request a film to be shown.

If you would like such a film to be shown please get in contact with us at with details of the film and how it links to the borough.

Earlier in the year we held two quiz sessions at the Sir John Bayley Club on Haygate Road.  Beginning with only a few teams, the number doubled for the second quiz and we have been asked to “stage” some more – details are on the poster here!  Form a team and join us.

Team of One?  Don’t worry – we can match you with a team when you arrive.

Latest on HSBC, film festival and supporters’ meeting

Clifton Team : 8th September 2017 13:42 : News

We started our film festival last Saturday with a sell out for Brief Encounter and this week we are showing Rio Bravo.  There are still seats available so please come to the Belmont Hall at 7.00 for a 7.30 on Saturday if you can to see this cult classic.

We distributed at Brief Encounter an update on our progress towards getting the lease on HSBC and this is attached for everybody’s information.  In particular, please note that the TWC consultation exercise for the legacy fund remains open until 18th September.  We would be grateful if as many people as possible were to respond to the survey by e-mail or Freepost indicating their support for part of the fund to be applied to us to fit out the HSBC building.  This could be an important source of finance for us.

Finally, the next supporters’ meeting will be on Tuesday 19th September at the King Street Café at 18.30.  As always, everybody is welcome to attend to receive the latest updates on what is a fluid situation.

Hello everyone.

Just to keep you all up to date –

Film bookings coming in now. Brief Encounter Tea+Film especially. Don’t miss out on a seat!
Just to make it clear in answer to a question yesterday. The film and tea are inclusive. If you only wish to see the film that’s fine but the ticket will remain at £10. We believe the film will begin at about 6.00 p.m. but we have to make allowances to clear tables etc. And of course there may not be a seat available, so we still recommend you book and let us know you will not attend the tea. Thank you.

If you have any questions about the Festival in general – please email
