Artists are being invited to work with the community towards plans for a new heart for Mytholmroyd. Calderdale Council is working with Royd Regeneration and St Michael’s Church to create a new Town Square for Mytholmroyd, and a piece of public art will form a focal point in the centre of the site, and will be a key part of the transformation.
Teenagers will be putting their own stamp on the new Hebden Bridge library at a graffiti workshop this Saturday. They will produce a large graffiti board which will go on display in the new teenage area when the library opens next month.

Hebden Bridge residents will be paying some of the lowest council tax increases in the region. At last night’s Budget Meeting, Calderdale councillors voted to peg council tax rises to 1.78%.
