Spring Clean 2010

Yet again the Mytholmroyd Monsoon started just when we had arranged to do some station work.

Nevertheless, the station stalwarts were there in force – dozens of them filling dozens of sacks with the accumulated rubbish.

A good start for our preparations for Yorkshire in Bloom – not only at the station, but also the churches and ‘our’ Stuart and Brenda’ clearing the debris from under the viaduct.

Yorkshire in Bloom 2009 AND 2010

Despite a bit of weather to spoil all this Global warming, we are busy planning for a colourful 2010 season.

Not only will we, along with our neighbours around the station be welcoming the Yorkshire in Bloom judges, but are planning to start a Community Garden on the embankment.

Watch this space!
