The Parish Council supports all local projects that aim to maintain the features of the Parish, and one of these groups is TPEG.

David Shearn, member of TPEG asked to share some information regarding the group;

“The group was formed in 2004 by a number of people in the Parish who were concerned to maintain and improve the environment of the two villages. Among the more visible results of our work are the two village stones and the wonderful display of bulbs – daffodils, crocuses and snowdrops – that appear each spring in the Parish. Less obvious, but just as important, is the work we do in woodlands, clearing away saplings, and strimming near the edges of paths to keep them open for walkers.

We also do litter picking on some of the roads on the outskirts of the village.

Our funding comes from a number of sources, including the Parish Council.

To find out more of what we do, and how you might be able to contribute with ideas or a little of your time, do visit the TPEG website via the following link;”

Tankersley Parish Council worked alongside residents to gather their views on community issues and opinions regarding topics such as housing and development, crime and policing, public services, roads and the local environment.

Resident responses were collated and their views have allowed the Parish Council to develop a summary document, to be used to better the community and support residents within the Parish, while attempting to meet their needs.
