Grant towards celebrations

MARKET traders have received funding from Todmorden town council to stage events to celebrate Easter and the Royal Wedding.

Councillors agreed to give Todmorden Indoor Market Tenants Association a grant of £839 to contribute to the costs of the events such as decorations and advertising.

Coun Margareta Holmstedt said: “I think it’s a wonderful idea.”

Coun Hilary Myers said: “Hopefully it will attract people to the town centre on these weekends and will attract people to the town.

“I’m in full support of it.”
