I like this forum, but am a little downhearted at the level of negativity... We live in this town that most of us are actually quite proud of, and yet our forum is just a tiny bit grumbly.
In the interest of half full glasses across the valley has anyone got anything to add to the following entirely spurious and distinctly arbitrary awards for local excellence.
Best Pint... Fox & Goose invariably. But there are a good few about.
Best Pint outside with a nice view on a summers eve.... is it called Lane Ends up on the edge of old town?
Favorite Short Stroll... depends on your definition of short but almost certainly up to the Blue Pig along the river.
Best Market Stall... the young couple who do fish on a Thursday. Great fish, really friendly, really fresh.
Best Service... Oasis, outstanding. Closely followed by the united friendlies at Mooch.
Best night of the year....Bonfire Night- well done Round Tablers.
Gig I'd wished I gone to see and didn't Paul Daley. Was he any good?

A few more;
Best 'greasy spoon' caff - Ken's Cabin Cafe (back to its former glory)
Best pub grub - The White Swan (cheap, too)
Best night's entertainment - The Open Mic Surgery, every Wednesday above The Stubbing Wharf
Best walk - up the Colden Valley to Jack Bridge, pick your own wild garlic on the way
Best supermarket - Lidl, Todmorden

What about best shop? I'd nominate Bonsalls for the top two places, followed by Oasis. I'd disqualify any shop that opened after 9.00am. Worst shop? Hmmm...
