Community Hub & Learning Centre

Todmorden Learning Centre & Community Hub is a well established project to transfer the current Tod College into community control. The building has been under-used and run-down over the last few years by CMBC, and needs investment. It will provide everything from increased learning opportunities and vocational courses, to well-being classes, rooms for meetings, a hall with stage for hire, a well-equipped gym, as well as office and workshop space for small businesses. However it’s a massive undertaking, and will take several years to build up to be financially self-sustaining. It also needs capital works to improve accessibility, fire safety, energy efficiency and so on. Todmorden is crying out for this building to become a community hub/learning centre, and so some of the funds ought to be invested into helping this project.

  1. A learning Hub that is centred on local craft, building and farming practices would be a fantastic draw to the town. Post-Covid 19 Universities will be decentralising their teaching and offering blended learning and spoke and hub models may develop. This Community College could provide a space for smaller group teaching face-2-face for the many Universities and colleges in the wider area.

  2. Todmorden Community College is just what Todmorden needs now and in the future. I would have thought the Towns Fund is exactly designed for the type of community project the Todmorden Community College and Learning Centre represents. yes things will start small but will build up quickly – if an old soldier can walk 100 laps of his garden at the age of 99 and raise over 27 million pounds for the NHS. Then we can all together make to TCC&LC a great success.

  3. I have already commented on another suggestion to revitalise Calder College and offer educational opportunities for the whole community.
    It would be a huge benefit to the town – basic skills training and work related courses to basket weaving and macrame, the opportunity to learn together locally would help so many
