A group hoping to submit a business plan to keep Todmorden Community College in public hands has a meeting on Tuesday evening and a family fundraiser event on Saturday, September 16.

Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub aims to create a National Learning Centre in the Calder Valley to provide marketable skills in natural building, agro-ecology and micro-generation and house some local services – including a children’s centre and a youth club, with any profits going into the development and maintenance of the facilities.

The group’s next meeting is on Tuesday, September 12, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Egg Factory, Victoria Road, Hebden Bridge, and everyone is invited to come along to the all-day fundraiser at the Golden Lion, Fielden Square, Todmorden, from 11am on Saturday, September 16, which includes a table top sale and performances from musicians and DJs.

Last Saturday TLC had a stall at Todmorden Food Festival.
