Our thoughts are with you – Floods June 2012.

Little did we know when our station volunteers were working at the station last Friday afternoon that some would have a very stressful night and weekend as the two rivers rose over their banks.

Our thoughts are with our friends and everyone in the valley who have been caught up in the events.

It may be small compensation for the ruined property, but Calderdale Foundation have established a relief fund.

As a small way of saying thanks to our sponsors and supporters who have helped us so much over the last six years – we have the following Poster on the station platforms.

Please help all our locals when you can.

Aren’t we Lucky?

A few months ago the Station Partnership embarked on improving the approach to the station by planning artwork in the window spaces of the old station building.

What to put in the spaces?

No problem – our young people at the local schools soon had the first artwork ready.

Under the guidance of artist Annie Lawson and their teacher Janet Normanton, Scout Road school students produced the first Window Art.

Here we see the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Dr Ingrid Briscoe, with our talented students and on the right is Nigel Oliver from Green Business Network who sponsored this work.

More is planned, watch this space!
