Over the coming months we'll follow their mission to gather funding, ideas and support for the improvement of the platforms and the overall modernisation and revamp of the run-down station.

On March 1st GMPTE provided free tickets for the group to travel down the line to Handforth Station where local people have joined together on a similar community improvement project.

I was delighted to see the art work on the station, my son is starting schoool at Alma Park and it was good to see local involvement, it brighens my day going to work.
