Our thoughts are with you – Floods June 2012.

Little did we know when our station volunteers were working at the station last Friday afternoon that some would have a very stressful night and weekend as the two rivers rose over their banks.

Our thoughts are with our friends and everyone in the valley who have been caught up in the events.

It may be small compensation for the ruined property, but Calderdale Foundation have established a relief fund.

see www.cffc.co.uk

As a small way of saying thanks to our sponsors and supporters who have helped us so much over the last six years – we have the following Poster on the station platforms.

Please help all our locals when you can.

We did not wait for Summer 2012 – t’Judges came and (we think) they were impressed!

Friday 20 July – it stayed (more or less) rain-free for an hour.

Christine Stewart and Steve Bumley were shown around the station and surrounding area by the volunteers who have done so much to improve the area.

We shall have to wait and see  what they rank us in the order of things within the Yorkshire in Bloom award system.

Friday 6 July – with the river fast approaching 3 m above normal it was prudent to postpone the weeding session.

Thanks to Alex who made a spirited effort and sorry his RSPCA shop is flood-shut.

Hey lads and lasses – we beat the weather gremlin – a full two hours without a drop of rain.

Must be a record for our gardening teams – and what splendid bunch of people came along to get the station looking that much better after the awful weather we have had this year.


Watch this space……….

Yorkshire in Bloom judging is on July 20.

Those that can are busy clearing the mess from the flood, so our visitors will have something to see.

What they will see is a neighbourhood that has helped each other whenever possible.
