Meet The Committee

Meet The Committee

The Todconnect committee members are all volunteers – and busy local business owners like yourselves.

However, we can’t and don’t do everything by ourselves. It would not exist without the involvement and actions of many, many people unified under the passion of making Tod an even better place to live, work & play.

If you’re a business owner with either ideas, enthusiasm, connections, skills, or just simply a hankering to ‘give back’ or ‘pay forward’ and help in any way – then that would be BRILLIANT.

You can contact any of the committee members, or just come along to our next meeting and say “Hello”.

Alan Rogers

Acting Chair

Alan is the most recent of residents to Tod (of Todconnect committee members that is) having moved here in late 2018. But only from Sowerby Bridge where he’d lived since 2001.

As someone whose business is in creating websites and online marketing he was a handy person to get on board as he has created not only this Todconnect website for us, but also the There’s More in Todmorden site too!

His background is in high volume retail mangement and he’s also completed a Business Mentorship Programme through Calderdale Council to better help new & growing businesses.

Alan says… “Having come close to setting up a similar group in Sowerby Bridge last year, I am delighted to have the opportunity to become more involved with Todconnect. I believe that Tod has so much potential and it’s fantastic to see how many new businesses have opened up in 2019 alone. Exciting times & possibilities ahead for sure.
