Cllr Liz Thorpe
Liz was elected to Stansfield Ward, Todmorden Town Council, in May 2021 since when she has been actively involved in representing resident’s interests.
Liz has lived in Todmorden since 2013 and moved here because of the sense of community in the town.
She had a career in the public sector as a nurse and subsequently as a social worker. Her hobbies and interests include DIY, furniture restoration, upholstery, gardening, and spending time with her family.
Since her retirement she has been able to increase the amount of voluntary work she does and is now one of the tour guides for Incredible Edible Todmorden, showing people from all over the world around Todmorden. She also supports Together We Grow with their programmes for refugee families and is lead volunteer at the Cornholme and Portsmouth Old Library.
