For Valentine’s Day with a difference, campaigners in Todmorden will be collecting signatures for petitions around town tomorrow, demanding Calderdale take action over eyesore sites in the town.
Using the message “Let them know if you think it’s pants”, Todmorden Time For A Change is backing action to tidy sites at Abraham Ormerod Centre/Olympia Cinema and Halifax Road in the town centre, and at Cinderhill, Halifax Road.
Calderdale Council can take action to use statutory powers to ensure the sites are at least tidied.
They are also visually making their protest seen as well as heard. “If you think the Ormerod Centre looks pants, bring some to peg on our line,” they say.
