Week two into my Hebden Bridge Arts Festival Residency and the sun continues to beam at me as I cycle to the big red bus on the canal path from Todmorden, my home for a fortnight with J & TC. Treated with boundless tlc I'm not sure I'll be able to leave come Sunday. I am making a page-a-day publication in celebration of the town's 500th Birthday. Everyone I meet has a local story, a slice of advice, an invitation. The people here are like no other and each day I like the town more. I also like the rice crispie cakes at Waits Confectioners, a 90 pence piece sweet treat.
