The Tod that has two faces

TODMORDEN has two faces.

When we moored up by a local pub in the sunshine, we were so impressed.

Your protected swan, lovely veggies and proud folk, we were told all about the In Bloom group and Incredible Edible.

Young males boasted about TV programmes you have your town on.

My on my, come the evening we were in hell - yobs throwing glasses and bottles in the water. They even threw in the same bench we had enjoyed the sun on, wrenched it up, stones and all, and threw it into the water.

We were terrified for our safety.

We won’t come back, nor will the other boaters.

Your town is a delight, but the night life will drive folk away.

Mr J. Carr, Doncaster
