The Tyume Times

The Tyume Times is our new in-print format regular newsletter! It was born from a need for a slower, more considered form of consuming our local news and sharing our stories in a time honoured traditional way.

It also will endeavour to raise much needed money that can be ploughed back into our Hogsback Community Chest Fund from where we can serve the needs of the community and infrastructure. We therefore ask that everybody support this newsletter by buying it for their cottages, for themselves and asking their guests to buy copies as well!!

All the editions will be archived on this site, once it is all sold out or when the next edition is printed.
