West Yorkshire’s Temporary Chief Constable Dee Collins saw local police officers and several organisations and projects at work when she visited the Calder Valley last Friday.

Temporary Chief Constable Collins inspected the growing beds run by Incredible Edible Todmorden with local community groups - at Todmorden Police Station among other areas - and learned more about the Incredible Aqua Garden, which is based at Todmorden High School, Ewood Lane.

Then at St Mary’s Church, she met Sandra Peach and team who spoke about the Indepepndent Living and associated Independent Nightlife project, which is a group for adults with learning disabilities, encouraging acceptance and integration into the local community - and is one of the Mayor of Todmorden Coun Michael Gill’s charities this year.

The policing team joined Independent Living members and volunteers for afternoon tea. They were delighted to welcome the officers and thanked them for the support they received from West Yorkshire Police.
