Get facts right over the Hall bid

Share this article

AS a member of The Todmorden Town Hall Group, I wish to correct Coun Jane Booth on her letter August 18.

Todmorden Council did not put together the lottery bid or provide match funding, this was provided by The Town Centre Rennaisence Group who also set up The Town Hall Group as a sub-committee.

The Town Hall Group worked hard on this bid and are very dissapointed it was not successful, one of the reasons was the progress on the Piece Hall Halifax, Heritage Lottery wanted to see funding rather than letters of support which Todmorden Town Council was not prepared to do,

The group is now looking at a revised less ambitious bid. As a recently elected councillor, will Coun Jane Booth please get her facts right.

Mrs Olwen Jennings,

Station Parade, Todmorden.
