How does the (station) garden grow? Find out and meet new friends!

A really friendly team of volunteers from our local community – and further afield  – make our village community railway station a  welcoming and an attractive place for residents and visitors.

Just look at our station and surrounding area and approaches – makes the village look the nice friendly place it is.

All Welcome

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.

Thanks Stella. and anyone else who can help with the village station.

Another Thriving year for our happy team

After a scrumptous lunch at York Racecourse, Deputy Chairman George and Shirley came back with another Yorkshire in Bloom award.

Well done everyone who braved the Mytholmroyd Monsoons and to all our sponsors and supporters.

Then Sue, George and I found our passports and went across the frontier to Llandudno for the annual Association of Community Rail Partnerships dinner.

Mytholmroyd  was nominated THREE times – once for the new Montage on Platform 2 and for two  photos of the group and local school sponsors.

We did not get an award but enjoyed the company of the new Northern Rail MD, Alex Hynes , and Stakeholder Manager, Drew Haley – support  from whom resulted in our Yorkshire friends at Bentham station getting  the top gong.

These occasions remind us how lucky we are to have the backing from a company like Northern Rail and  the managers.
