Town Hall bid

IN my opinion, Coun Jayne Booth (letters, August 18) is incorrect about the Town Hall lottery bid.

This was prepared by the Todmorden Town Hall Development Group, of which I have been a member throughout.

We have had exemplary chairs with Coun Ian Cooper and then Coun Olwen Jennings, and great support from Calderdale officials.

It is this group which put together the bid, over many months, whilst also exploring match funding. The group is minded to make a revised bid in the New Year.
