Bringing businesses together

Better Together

Running your own business can be a solitary and lonely life at times, even if you do have people working with you.

Getting together and chatting with other business owners gives us an opportunity to talk through issues, share ideas and even uncover possibilities for exciting collaborations.

However it always works best when everyone approaches it with the attitude of ‘going to give’ and helping others first rather than themselves.

Todconnect provides a way for businesses to come together, to get to know each other and form stronger relationships which will hopefully develop to benefit not only their own businesses but the town as a whole.

It also aims to forge closer links with other local associations & groups such as Todmorden Information Centre, Tod Civic Pride, Incredible Edible & Todmorden Town Council.

When businesses and communities connect and work together with common goals and a unified approach then only good things can happen.

GBHS 2018

It was a truly amazing effort from a number of local businesses, community groups & residents that secured the Great British High Street Rising Star Award for Todmorden in 2018.

Our Planet Tod

Emerging from the GBHS Campaign, this is an initiative aiming to improve Todmorden for everyone – exploring ways we can empower & support the community to look after our town.

A Town In The Valley On The Rise

Over recent years community groups such as Incredible Edible & Todmorden in Bloom and business groups like Todconnect who led the successful Great British High Street Rising Star Award campaign in 2018, have spread awareness and raised the profile of this great town far & wide.

A number of high quality new businesses have already opened this year and with them comes a wider choice of products, services and experiences for residents and visitors alike.

Whilst few businesses would deny trading conditions are still challenging, what can’t be denied is our ‘High Street’ certainly seems to be bucking the current national trend.

Spreading the word about Todmorden being a great place to visit will attract more people into the town and a good choice of quality businesses gives them a reason to stay.
