I would like to suggest that some of the money be invested in youth services/ projects. Aside from traditional youth services(cubs, Scouts, guides etc) there is very little youth provision in Todmorden. I feel the town would benefit from a well funded, dedicated centre where youths could meet and channel energy positively. There are many examples of such projects having a positive impact on anti social behaviour and crime statistics. As a parent of young children I feel that opportunities are severely limited once they are older.
