Burnley Road

Todmorden

Todconnect entered Burnley Road, Todmorden to the Rising Star Award under the Environment pillar. Their initiative started with community litter picks, which created a community of volunteers and now aims to follow an environment strategy to improve Todmorden for everyone. Their plan will encourage community groups to collaborate on this strategy, including litter picks, promoting the inclusion of environmental responsibility into the school curriculum, competitions in bin design and social media campaigns, a plastic-free push with reusable bags, water bottles and takeaway containers. Their campaign is named ‘OUR PLANET TOD is neat (OPTin)’ and wants their high street improvements to be a legacy for inclusion.
