With thanks to Northern Rail and Drew Haley, our volunteer workers and supporters enjoyed a day at sunny Morecambe.
Month: July 2013
t’Natives are getting restless ….
A few years ago we asked Network Rail the owners of the Access Road if they could make things easier for the less mobile folk who use Mytholmroyd as it is the step-free station in the upper valley.
Network Rail resurfaced two dropping-off points and made improvements along their road.
The road (whilst not a car park) is again causing concern for local rail users.
We have requested Network Rail to divert a truckload of tarmac before the locals find some Trident missiles.
A truck and gang arrived and the potholes were levelled out – no sign of the tarmac lorry, perhaps it is too hot here for next 3 or 4 years.
Well done Network Rail – Thank you.
Mosaic turns into Community Display
The wonderful Northern Mosaic produced by the students from calder High school finally surcumbed to the Pennine weather up on Platform Two.
We have replaced it with a Display celebrating all the voluntary work and support we have received over the years.
Hope you like it
Thanks to ACoRP –
Association of Community Rail Partnerships
Would you Believe it ??????

Station gardeners are used to the Mytholmroyd Monsoon descending as soon as they get ready to spruce-up the station.
At our annual unveiling Luncheon when we entertained over 50 guests, it became even more exciting!
Just before we went outside for photographs with out talented local artists, the new Mayor of Hebden Royd Cllr Karl Boggis gave a very thoughtful speech on the value of communities like ours.
Then as our MP Craig Whittaker made an appreciative few words, the event organisers were watching the May blizzard raging outside the windows. The young artists from Cragg Vale school were outside with signs of hyperthermia.
Sue and Geoff Mitchell were quietly saying to themselves – Don’t Panic – DON’T PANIC !!!!
Everything went well in the end – thanks to all our supporters.
