‘No’ to nanny!

I AM writing to air my annoyance at Todmorden Council “standing firm against Sainsbury’s” - this town is fast becoming a nanny state in miniature.

The thing I love most about Todmorden is it’s essence; one that embraces individualism and creativity, whilst looking towards a better future for its residents. By standing against this new store Todmorden Council are saying no to jobs, and no to encouraging visitors to come and spend in our town.

The local shops and makets are fabulous, but they do not and cannot meet the shopping requirments of everyone all of the time.
