The Thumbs have it!

We went down to the annual Association of Community Rail Partnership awards knowing we had been short-listed for two categories – Temporary Artworks and the Photography.

We are delighted to announce our new Station Stars – Isabelle, Francesca and Oliver.

The photo (and the station) were voted  Third place out of the hundred or so entries.

Truly OUTSTANDING – we are

Thanks to all our station volunteers, supporters and sponsorship from the local community and businesses and not forgetting the local Councils and Northern Rail – we are have been deemed an Outstanding Neighbourhood in the Yorkshire in Bloom awards.

Thanks to Mary and Doris for venturing across to York to collect the Award – and have a nice lunch!

We wuz Judged

It threatened to rain upon them – but did not.

The Yorkshire in Bloom judges had a nice dry and friendly introduction to Mytholmroyd.

Station and neighbourhood volunteers and supporters showed our visitors round.

Thanks to everyone – including Town Clerk Jason and Neighbourhood Manager Jae.

Didn’t we do well?

Out of the 400 plus stations they operate, Northern Rail nominated us for the Best Station Adoption Group award 2012.

We are in a shortlist of 6 stations from around the country who will learn who is top-dog at the national Community Rail 2012 ceremony at Swindon on 30 September.

We did not get a Gong this time, but we all can be very proud how we have brought together a small community round the village railway station.

It can be fun – some of the time (when it stops raining!).

Next Dig-in was last Friday at 13.30 and there was no slacking.

Our faithful dozen or so got a lot of weeding and hedge trimming done – in the sunshine!

 

Thriving t’Royd

The Award was for our neighbourhood improvements – and meeting such lovely and interesting people.

More to it than just pretty flowers in tubs!
