What goes on in Tansley?


Tansley Hotwire will tell you about shows and other social events in the village and keep you posted about the activities of groups and clubs you can join. It will let you know what is going on in the Village Hall and the Community Hall, keep you informed about Parish Council meetings, and alert you to crimes in the village. It publicises events happening at the village pubs and in the churches. It will keep you informed about planning issues and alert you to crimes committed locally. It posts appeals about lost cats and dogs and advertises unwanted domestic items going free. 


The Hotwire’s focus is Tansley, its mission to help community cohesion through good communication. Hotwire makes its sources clear and tries to report without bias. No fake news!
