After waiting for two months for a decision on just £1500 worth of funding for The Haworth and Worth Valley Media Project we have been turned down.
The funders say there is no "social need" for the project and were dismissive in a particularly uninformed way of what we are trying to achieve.
OK. The project goes on without funding. The only thing that the Haworth area will not get for the moment is a newspaper of quality with real informative editorial content. No problem there, it hasn't got one now, in fact it never has had.
What it will get is under wraps until we launch it, and launch it we will.
Watch this space, as they say, and in the meantime shed loads of money will be thrown at projects which, in our humble opinion, are not worth it.
