Royd Market – Free Draw

Northern Rail kindly donated a free ticket for up to four people to travel anywhere on their trains for two days.

The winner was Chris Wrathnall

Well done Chris – and thank you everyone for participating.

Watch out for similar goodies at

Marmaladies on Nov 19 at their first Art exhibition

when  Margaret Knight won it –

then there is the

Toy Fair at the Good Shepherd on December 6th

Thank you Pete and Northern Rail for you help and support to our Community Railway Station.

 

We did not wait for Summer 2012 – t’Judges came and (we think) they were impressed!

Friday 20 July – it stayed (more or less) rain-free for an hour.

Christine Stewart and Steve Bumley were shown around the station and surrounding area by the volunteers who have done so much to improve the area.

We shall have to wait and see  what they rank us in the order of things within the Yorkshire in Bloom award system.

Friday 6 July – with the river fast approaching 3 m above normal it was prudent to postpone the weeding session.

Thanks to Alex who made a spirited effort and sorry his RSPCA shop is flood-shut.

Hey lads and lasses – we beat the weather gremlin – a full two hours without a drop of rain.

Must be a record for our gardening teams – and what splendid bunch of people came along to get the station looking that much better after the awful weather we have had this year.

Watch this space……….

Yorkshire in Bloom judging is on July 20.

Those that can are busy clearing the mess from the flood, so our visitors will have something to see.

What they will see is a neighbourhood that has helped each other whenever possible.

Our own MBEEEEEs

No,  not those sort who want to protect their coverted fox-hunting in the Chilterns from the evil High Speed Rail Mk2.

Paul and Mary richly deserve to have been done at the Palace –

they have contributed so much towards the community stations that we now have in the Calder Valley.
