Handmade Parade organisers were happy to host a famous friend last weekend for a cuppa at The Bear in Todmorden and discussing the upcoming Fantastical Cycle Parade.
“I’m a big fan of Todmorden and Hebden Bridge,” said Candida Doyle, keyboard player with 90s sensations Pulp, “and I think the Yorkshire Festival is going to be brilliant for the whole county.” Jarvis’ musical documentary ‘The Big Melt’ will be part of the Tour de Cinema series of events, one of which is coming to Hardcastle Crags, so I’ve been keeping an eye out on what’s been going on.”
On the Fantastical Cycle Parade she said: “You lot are a determined and a creative bunch round here and I can’t wait to see what you come up with on parade day, April 26!”.
There is an Open Volunteers meeting on Monday March 31, at The Bear (5.30pm). Anyone interested but unable to make the meeting is welcome to contact event organiser Hannah Merriman via email email@example.com for a chat.
Free bike makeover workshops will take place at Todmorden High School from Saturday, April 12. For full details and times, go to: handmadeparade.co.uk/cycle-parade-todmorden.
