Funds will see us bloom in summer

COUNCILLORS have agreed to give a £4,000 grant to Todmorden in Bloom.

Members of the town council’s amenities committee voted in favour of giving the funding towards watering costs, replacement of barrier baskets and the annual prize-giving event.

Sheila Greenwood, from the Bloom group said: “We have become a product of our own success and simply can’t do the watering ourselves. We need help.”

Coun Margareta Holmstedt said: “People expect Todmorden in Bloom to produce something really magical, so I would like to support this application.”
