Praise for rail­way sta­tion’s re­vamp

Accrington Observer - - FAMILY ANNOUCEMENTS -

ON­GO­ING rail sta­tion im­prove­ment works at Church and Oswaldtwistle sta­tion have been praised.

Both the old bar­rel pas­sen­ger shel­ters have been re­placed and the area that once held the gas me­ters has been com­pletely ren­o­vated with a new steel gate fit­ted to pre­vent ac­cess.

Church and Oswaldtwistle Ro­tary Club vol­un­teers are now build­ing two large planters, and plants will be placed in them dur­ing the com­ing months. This fol­lows the re­moval of un­der­growth and ap­pli­ca­tion of four tonnes of chip­pings to the area last Au­tumn.

The sub­way to the sta­tion has been painted and steel net­ting fixed to the ceil­ing and walls to curb roost­ing pi­geons.

Ro­tar­ian Michael Jack­son said: “Our Ro­tary mem­bers con­sider this project very im­por­tant in en­sur­ing the lo­cal rail­way sta­tion looks in the best pos­si­ble shape. We are very ap­pre­cia­tive that by work­ing with Car­il­lion and Net­work Rail any large items that has needed at­ten­tion has been achieved, I would also like to thank the help that has been ex­tended to us by Hyn­d­burn Bor­ough Coun­cil and the Prospects Or­gan­i­sa­tion.”
