Congratulations to Festive Fandango winner Wendy Siddiqui from Brighouse.  This year’s scheme was a great success with more shops and businesses taking part and spreading beyond Hebden Bridge to include Mytholmroyd. 

Wendy said  “I love coming over to shop in Hebden Bridge and Mythlomroyd as the local businesses are so distinctive and I always make sure I fill in my Festive Fandango card. I couldn’t believe it when I found out I’d won the hamper in the raffle so thanks to all the businesses who donated. It has found a very good home.

“I have also been following the story of a couple who were living in a tent over Christmas, who the community here have rallied round to help, so I wanted to do my bit by donating one of the meal vouchers in the hamper so they can have a night out to relax and enjoy themselves. I think the businesses would see that as being in keeping with the community ethos of Festive Fandango.”

“One of the great things about the Festive Fandango is it brings shoppers outside Hebden Bridge and Mythlomroyd into Calder Valley to shop,” says Helen Meller, Festival Director. “It was a real pleasure to meet Wendy who came across from Brighouse to fill in her Fandango card because she loves Hebden’s unique  local businesses”.
