This is a golden opportunity - let’s make most of it

Well done Todmorden Tourist Information Centre for organising a really useful meeting last week to consider preparations by local communities and businesses for Le Tour’s journey through Calderdale in July next year.

It was attended (at a quick count) by about 40 people.

We started to talk about a wide variety of ideas and possibilities – from campsites to street parties!

This is a golden opportunity for local people to participate in and benefit from the event.

We need to show the world how lovely our area is: the beautiful countryside and the spirit of the people and the place.

I’m sure that this will be the first of many meetings so that we can get organised.

Similar meetings are being planned for Hebden Bridge (Thursday, July 18, 7.30 in Hebden Bridge Town Hall), and for Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale.

I hope that everyone will join in!
