A few years ago we asked Network Rail the owners of the Access Road if they could make things easier for the less mobile folk who use Mytholmroyd as it is the step-free station in the upper valley.
Network Rail resurfaced two dropping-off points and made improvements along their road.
The road (whilst not a car park) is again causing concern for local rail users.
We have requested Network Rail to divert a truckload of tarmac before the locals find some Trident missiles.
A truck and gang arrived and the potholes were levelled out – no sign of the tarmac lorry, perhaps it is too hot here for next 3 or 4 years.
Well done Network Rail – Thank you.
The wonderful Northern Mosaic produced by the students from calder High school finally surcumbed to the Pennine weather up on Platform Two.
We have replaced it with a Display celebrating all the voluntary work and support we have received over the years.
Hope you like it
Thanks to ACoRP –
Association of Community Rail Partnerships
Thanks for coming to the station Do – hope you enjoyed it. Wasn’t the food good – well those who came earlier enough or unlike me spent too much chatting around the place!
What a great variety of interesting (50+) people are associated with the Station.
Plans are on-going for our 2013 displays!
It will be the turn of Cragg Vale School artists – and we are receiving some interesting pictures of local history.
Keep them coming – anything up to 1980s with local interest please.
A great selection of photos of the 2012 ‘Do’ are attached.
The following is the poetic emails between Sue and the lady in Pink. Too clever by half for me……
Glorious in Pink
A gal with a mission
Dogoil – good for bones!
She moved thru the room
Resplendant in pink – our Bard
She’s done it again.
The gardening club party was a reet grand affair
Everyone who was anyone just had to be there
The mayor gave a speech, his gold chain just glistened
And Geoff praised us all, and made sure we listened
The man of the moment was dear Father John,
Tending the bar with his usual aplomb
The buffet was good, but I was really bereft
When I went for my trifle – nothing was left
Still, seeing old friends made it all worth while
The sun kept on shining and made everyone smile
The hard work’s paid off, the station’s a stunner
And will still look lovely through all of the summer

In between bites of the delicious lunch provided by Lyn of the Shoulder of Mutton and refreshing drinks supplied by Fr John Gott and Hon. Secretary Sue – we heard how our voluntary efforts are apprecited by the wider community.
Then the highlight of the event was to see the artwork by the scholars of Scout Road Academy – and the artists themselves.
The artwork has been coordinated by local artist Annie Lawson, a generous grant from the Association of Community Rail Partnerships made the 2012 exhibition possible. The displays themselves are a the result of a landfill grant from the Green Business Network – our extended partnership of community groups.

Burnley Road School were the artists this year.
The new Mayor of Hebden Royd Town Council, Robin Dixon unveiled the art.

The new History Displays were researched by Michael Allen and are proving interesting and popular.
