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.

Route 66 and Permissive Path to Brearley

Brearley Bridge is now open for all users to enjoy the shared path down the valley.

The station approach ramp is for pedestrians only – cyclists should dismount especially when there are other people there.

The station ramp comes under railway bye-laws and there are sufficient notices explaining the position.

We have suggested to the cycling fraternity that this would be a good opportunity for the cycle route to be diverted away from the station approach.

Consult with your cycling and community groups with practical ideas.

Thanks

Cycling on Railway stations

Long before cycling became as popular as it is now – Cycleroute 66 was directed down the station approach here at Mytholmroyd.

There are now some serious conflicts between station users and cyclists who ignore the notices pointing out that it illegal to cycle on station property

The pedestrian-only notices have been installed – but  a minority of cyclists ignore.

If you have any problems please contact British Transport Police – either

Phone 0800 40 50 40 or

New plants for Route 66

By late September it is planned to have an improved entrance to the Manchester approach path.

Our contribution will be an enhanced garden area – and to help us along, local resident Stella Charnley has donated some plants and shrubs.
