LOCALS braved the bad weather at the weekend to give their village a tidy-up.

Cornholme Community Project in Todmorden accumulated 25 bags of rubbish.

The Big Tidy Up was organised to remove rubbish that had built up during the winter and prepare the community for spring.

A total of 25 people helped out and the council gave the team a skip, litter pickers, gloves and bags.

Liz Hinchcliffe, secretary of the project, said: “We do this every year and have seen definite improvements.

“We did get wet in the rain but we were rewarded with pie and peas at the working men’s club afterwards.”
