Tarset Grumpies are an informal group who meet regularly at the Holly Bush Inn on Tuesday evenings to discuss, over a pint, the many challenges faced by the world in the 21st century, and more importantly, propose radical but practical solutions.
The conversation varies with the composition of the group on the night but unsurprisingly MPs and others have had their fair share of our time, as have more weighty topics like:
"Are bankers liable?"
"What's the next Tarset valley challenge event?"
"Do we want a mobile phone mast in the national park?".
Future topics are expected to include "What has happened to apostrophe's?", "Is Tarset Better Off in Scotland?", "Should the Parish Council reduce the Lanehead-to-Greenhaugh toll road charges for quad bikes?" and "Why was the Tarset UFO visitation covered up?".
Tarset Grumpies have raised a fair amount for Water Aid by enjoying a weekend in the Lakes climbing a few hills, and running a charity fundraising stall at the annual Falstone Show.
