  • Tony Smale Continuation of my previous post... For most stations in Britain, it’s easy to check the poster for any particular station by viewing it online from the comfort of your own home: (1) Go to the National Rail website (2) Select your Station (3) Click on “Getting to and from the station” (4) Look down the list for “Onward travel information” - for most stations it will say “Information to plan your onward journey is available in a printable format here”. Remember that the version online may be more up to date than the version at the station – that, in itself, is worth reporting! When the poster first appeared at Wool station about 6 years ago, John, a member of our Station Adoption group, was astonished to find that the doctors’ surgery was in his back garden – how was it he hadn’t noticed? … We got it moved!

  • Simon Clarke The Royal Horticultural Society & North West in Bloom Awards 2016 were held in Southport again this year. At last weeks event three stations on the South Fylde Line and two on the West of Lancashire Lines received accolades. St. Anne’s-on-the-Sea, Lytham and Ansdell & Fairhaven stations on the South Fylde Line all received Level 4 – Thriving awards for their stations and Croston and Meols Cop stations in the West of Lancashire took  Level 4 – Thriving  and  Level 5 – Outstanding awards respectively. This is down to the hard work of the Friends of Station Groups who carry out cleaning, painting and planting at the stations. All the members of the friends groups are volunteers and their time and endless enthusiasm is much appreciated by their local Community Rail Partnership and Northern, the local train operator. The work the volunteers carry out helps make the stations a pleasant environment to wait for a train and also makes the station a gateway to the local area for visitors arriving by rail and makes them feel very welcome.
