Kidsfest worked its magic again, this is such a fabulous free event for all the children of Todmorden, we are always thrilled to help in anyway we can, and getting covered in glue glitter paint and more is well worth it.
this year was just as packed as ever, over 600 must have come through the doors and all those happy faces were pure joy to see.

there were so many wonderful groups making up the day if I wrote about them all it would take me a month.
So I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone, with a special thank you to Kirsten Fussing for organisung it all and letting us be part of the fun, and to her wardens for doing such an incredible job on the day.
