Grant boosts for Bloom and church

TODMORDEN in Bloom has received a grant of nearly £3,000 to contribute to three projects around town.

The funding has been provided by Todmorden town council to help with the costs of watering baskets and carrying out some more planting at Fielden Wharf. Some of the money will go towards the Bloom group’s annual prize-giving event.

Coun Anne James said: “They do a good job.”

St Mary’s Church Youth Cafe has received a £1,000 grant for a trip to Camas Outdoor Centre in Scotland.
