Do not fret – Hector is alright!

Amazing while he was being gently removed from his perch on the station banking – and since it was feared the worst had happened to him – folk have been querying his whereabouts.

The artist creator of Hector Sue decided he had had a week facing the Pennine elements and it was time to be retired before anything else happened.

Hector has now retired back home – and thanks all those who have admired his proud Yorkshire greetings to all our visitors.

What a fantastic event !!

Even this grumpy editor has to admit that the Tour de France event was a resounding success.

Here at the Royd visitors were welcomed by Northern Rail staff – followed by a carnival atmosphere in the village.

Great time – well done and thank you everyone.

Not least the station volunteers who have made the village railway station such an attractive feature..


Station Cycles

As part of a regional project to have cycle storage facilities at stations – Mytholmroyd now has THREE places.

The Station Partnership, through the generousity of Graham Joyce and Fr Gott arranged for one in from of the Church.

Northern Rail then put a smaller one next to the Leeds shelter.

Now, the Cycling Forum have put one at the top of the Manchester approach.

So, you cyclists forget your car and get biking – but please remember it is against the railway bye-laws to cycle in station areas.
