Mayor backs re-build bid

THE Mayor of the borough has welcomed Calderdale Council’s bid to the new Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) for funding to re-build Todmorden High School.

Coun Nader Fekri said he hopes the funding bid is successful.

“It is a testament to our young people and their teachers that they manage to achieve so much,” he said.

“Our children deserve much more than the frankly often shabby surroundings in which they have to study.”
