Following the extensive public consultation earlier in the century by the Upper Calder Valley Renaissance project residents and business owners from Mytholmroyd are invited by Royd Regeneration to update plans to improve the village.

During the last five years the town team, which aims to regenerate both Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale, has worked with community groups, Hebden Royd Town Council, Calderdale Council and Yorkshire Forward to achieve a mixture of many and varied projects.

"Some of our smaller projects include the refurbishment of small garden areas like the one at Hawksclough, Midgley Road plot and Cragg Vale park, which local people asked for help with. Larger projects include the refurbishment of St Michael's Church Hall, and the creation of the village Square and the enterprise hub," said Chairman Eric Alston.

"We are also very proud to have been the parent organisation to the Elmet Trust which now runs an annual walking festival, poetry events and lets out Ted Hughes' birthplace: 1, Aspinall Street, for use by the public as a holiday cottage" added former chairman Alan Brooks. "In 2010 we will oversee the refurbishment of the Memorial Garden which will again transform the centre of the village."

"It is however, time to look again at what needs to be done in the village and we cannot do this without asking the people who live and work in the area," said secretary Jade Smith. "There is more to Mytholmroyd than people might think and whilst there are some obvious buildings that clearly need refurbishment, Royd Regeneration would like to know what other ideas people have."

The consultation event will take place on Tuesday 26th January 2010 at The Erringden Room, St Michael's Church, New Road, Mytholmroyd. 7.00pm start. For further information please contact the secretary Jade Smith 01422 885325 or Chairman Eric Alston 07768 257726.
