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.

What went wrong!

Two whole days of station work – and NO rain, wind or snow!
The following is a selection of pictures of our volunteers merrily doing the Hebden Royd Spring Clean.

Where to start?

Didn’t they all do well

 

Who needs a Met Office?

We seem to spend millions on the mis-forecasts by celebrity weather presenters – when if you look at our Station calendar to see when our next Dig-in occurs – you can bet it will be pouring it down!!!!!!!!

Thanks to Jason and Emma for the plants and bulbs which we managed to squelsh in.

And of course so many thanks to the dozen volunteers who turned out in such appaling weather to make the community station look brighter this winter.

 

Bring out your snaps!

We are always looking for old photos of Mytholmroyd and station for our posterboards on the platforms – makes the wait for trains that much more interesting.

So, if you woud like to see them on this site and on the station please send them to

myt.station@btinternet.com

Just went for the 10.05 to Sowerby Bridge and found MYT station crowded – apparently a steamer was running 30 minutes late.

Never one to miss a snap – hope you like it.

 

Ringing in – the Tubs

Our Hon. Treasurer Caroline can sometimes be found ringing in the changes up the bell tower of the parish church.

‘R ‘Arry has gone one step further and ‘rung-in’ our flower tubs.

He has done the Manchester side in his beloved Lancashire Red –

and the Leeds side in our beloved Yorkshire White.

Thank you Mr Ward.

 

Celebrating Jubilees and top quality

With the help of students from Calderdale College our station volunteers have transformed the area at the top of the Manchester approach into an attractive garden.

The Elizabeth Garden – not only for the Jubilee – but remembering Betty Ward who helped with the station improvements.

We are also very fortunate to have in the area,  a top-class Sign-maker with Affordable Signs of Todmorden.

Here we have Keith Hudson putting up the latest notice they have made for the Station Partnership – top class service and all……..

Thanks   to    Keith Hudson
