Volunteers needed for Tankersley bonfire

By helen williams, Hoyland Reporter Wednesday 9th April 2014

BONFIRE planning has started early in Tankersley to avoid last year's problems when the village bonfire was cancelled due to lack of volunteers.

The parish council has set the date for November 8. Chairman Helen Reckless said two people usually collected wood for the fire but this was not enough.

"We need at least four people, and on the night we need ten people to build the bonfire and then to marshal and manage it," she said.
