Regulars at a Calder Valley bar haven’t waited for their favourite licensee to be recognised with an award - they’ve presented her with one of their own!

Customer Derek Elton presented a certificate of appreciation to owner Matthanee Nilavongse - known as Gig - for running the Three Wise Monkeys bar, Water Street, Todmorden.

Derek said: “She has received a ‘Star of Todmorden’ award which I had invented, with the support of many other of her friends, specially for her and had the pleasure of presenting to her.

“It was bit of fun with a more serious purpose - people do admire her for her energy and she has made a great contribution to the town.”
