A Card from a Friend




Today we collected a Christmas card, signed by 'a regular train traveller.'

"To all the Friends of Whaley Bridge Station.  Merry Christmas and thank you for all your hard work keeping the station so nice.  I have enjoyed lots of your books too, so here are some to share."

Thank you very much for your kind thoughts and a very merry Christmas to everyone who uses Whaley Bridge station.




Whaley Station hosts Major Friends' Gathering

Simon Brookes, our station manager, chaired a meeting of twelve Station Friends Groups on 31st August in the Waiting Room on the Buxton platform. This was an opportunity for group representatives to share information about any projects and events that have taken place recently at their station. This generated much discussion about avenues for funding, ways of acquiring help in completing projects and who to contact. Thanks to Alison for ‘flying the flag for Whaley' and for providing refreshments.

From Oxford to Whaley Bridge

Congratulations to John for all his hard work.  As well as a celebration of John's life it covers the formation and growth of FoWBS.  The new edition will  be available for purchase soon.  Watch this space.
