Well done everyone !!!!

Station volunteers, the children of Scout Road, the directors of Calder Weaving and the great and good of our railway system and local councils  descended on the community railway station of Mytholmroyd on June 22.

A super  lunch was enjoyed – thanks to Lisa at the Shoulder, Fr John, Mary and Anne at the Good Shepherd and Station Secretary Sue for the goodies.

From Seed to Settee

Yes here in t’Royd we have one of the last weaving sheds in Yorkshire

Calder Weaving Co. produce quality furnishing cloth for internationally renown firms as Laura Ashley and DFS.

Production Manager Alan Clayton kindly arranged for station volunteers and local school artists to visit the looms.

The 2015 Station Art project will be by youngsters from Scout Road Academy on the theme from Seed to Settee.

Their artwork is now up on the station building –  coordinated by Annie Lawson and Sue Mitchell.

Young artists and station volunteers make the old station building brighter
