Welcome to the re-launched Totnes Pulse

Totnes Pulse is a not-for-profit community magazine for the wider Totnes area, online right now and with a printed magazine in the near future.

We aim to offer:

1) ‘Citizen journalist’ News on community issues relevant to the wider Totnes area produced by taking a pulse on local opinion, and making accessible information not readily available elsewhere.

2) Comprehensive events listings for the area covering a wide range of categories – art and crafts, film, music, live performance, kids  – everything!

3) Features on people, groups and businesses who add colour and vibrance to the community and make a positive difference to the world.

4) Useful info like job vacancies, car-sharing, rentals, travel …


Want to be involved?

If you’re an event host or know of an event not listed, please use the Add-an-Event feature to upload full details of what’s happening when and where or tell us about them – info@totnespulse.co.uk

There are some wonderful local people to be featured – including absolutely amazing charity-creators, artists, musicians, wonderful food producers, innovative teachers …

If you would like to contribute in any aspect, writing articles, video, useful information please get in touch. There are many possibilities within the plan for the magazine outlined above, other ideas not mentioned yet, and of course your own imaginative ideas.

Overall, the site is intended to help all of us living and working in the Totnes area to be more informed about issues relevant to our lives and so more able to use well what democratic rights we have by hearing a range of opinion; to find fun and interesting ways to spend our time; to respect and value a little bit more all the varied people who make up this community; and to have a giggle.

We are very open to suggestions for improvement.
