Happy new year to all our lovely members. 2016 was a busy year for Tisbus & we hope this will continue throughout 2017.Our new bus has opened up new possibilities for Tisbus & it’s members, including working with Nadder Campus on some great upcoming events.

Great News -Tisbus now has sponsorship from Bassets in Tisbury High Street & the Co-op has added us to their local community fund. Those of you who have Co-op membership cards, everytime you scan them at the checkout, 1% of everything you spend on selected Co-op branded products & services goes directly to helping a charity in your community & this time they chose Tisbus.
