The Jubilee, which marks the Queen's 70 years of service, will be celebrated over a four-day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022 and celebratory events taking place in Todmorden over that weekend will be eligible for funding.

Coun Denis Skelton said “We have made a pot of £2,500 available to help the citizens of Todmorden mark and celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Whether you are planning a street party, a tea dance, or any other kind of celebration, we look forward to hearing all about it."

Applications can be submitted to the Town Council now for grants of up to £500 for events organised by constituted groups and £100 for individuals or un-constituted groups who are organising an event for the benefit of the wider community or residents of Todmorden.
