Todmorden is a market town in the Upper Calder Valley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. It is about 17 miles from Manchester and has a population of just over 15'000 people. Todmorden is at the confluence of three steep-sided Pennine valleys and is surrounded by moorlands with outcrops of sandblasted gritstone.
Despite the comment by the Greek poet Alexis c.350BC that committee meetings are a 'victory of the posterior over the mind', it's becoming ever clearer to me that they are essential. So essential, in fact, that the Town Council has decided to promote one mere 'sub-committee' into a fully blown 'standing committee' (Staffing).
