What makes Todmorden unique?

LOCAL businesses are being asked to identify Todmorden’s unique qualities by a new project working in the South Pennines.

The South Pennines local distinctiveness project, managed by rural regeneration company Pennine Prospects, is holding a marketing meeting to look at what makes Todmorden special and different. 

“What are the most important aspects of the area? Which bits should we be trying to promote? What does the area offer that’s different?” asks Rebecca Yorke, project co-ordinator.

To find out, Rebecca is inviting local businesses to an event at Barearts Beer Shop and Gallery, Rochdale Road, Todmorden at 1.30pm on Tuesday June 12.

This is just the first stage in the South Pennine LEADER-funded project which is designed to benefit tourism, hospitality and creative businesses across the area.  All attendees will receive a free copy of the Local Distinctiveness Handbook, which is packed full of ideas for local business marketing, said Rebecca.

There’s no charge for the workshop, but those interested in coming along are asked to register at www.southpennines.co.uk/news-and-events.html

Regular updates will also be posted at www.facebook.com/southpennines or tweeted, @southpennines.
