Todmorden Town Council Candidate - Angharad Turner

19 May 2017

I moved to Todmorden in 2016 because I love the place. It’s a great town full of independent businesses and vibrant community projects. As your councillor, I would do everything I can to support and promote this.

I oppose the council’s plans to demolish Todmorden College and support keeping it as a community resource. We need this space where our fantastic local initiatives in natural building, alternative energy and community agriculture can thrive.

As a regular public transport user, I am shocked at the lack of accessibility in Todmorden rail station and throughout the Calder valley. I support the campaign for step-free access to the Leeds platform of Todmorden rail station and will campaign for a public transport system that works for all.

Thanks to the great NHS care I received, I have recently made a full recovery from a very debilitating depression. We must stop the cuts to NHS mental health and other services that are happening across Calderdale. I will campaign for the retention and development of the life saving Calderdale Arts Psychotherapy service, based on the service users’ recommendations.

My working background is in archives and recordkeeping. I am passionate about accountability and access to information. As a councillor I would promote transparency and make myself directly accountable to you.

I joined the Green Party in 2014 for its long-term environmental plan and its commitment to building sustainable communities. We have made great progress in Todmorden. I want to help us to do even better.
