Local residents were invited to the second coffee morning held by the Luddenden Foot Conservatives at The Delvers Pub, Wainstalls.

Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker was present and the proposed car parking charges in Mytholmroyd were discussed.

Jill Smith-Moorhouse, Conservative candidate for the Luddenden Foot ward, said: “The Conservative group vigorously oppose these charges because they could reduce footfall to local shops and harm businesses that are just recovering after the floods. A petition has been put in the shops for people to sign to oppose the charges and will be presented to Calderdale Council.”
