Flower Beds

The application for a grant from Forever Manchester has at last been finalised and posted of it’s just a matter now of waiting but at least we can go ahead with renewing the safety fence as we are paying for that ourselves.

Flower Beds

Hi everybody the next project which hopefully will start in the coming months is to build two flower beds across the platform this time in front of the safety fence at the end of the platform we also want to renovate the fence its self when also we are hoping to have a sign six foot by two foot mounted on the flower beds with Denton Station painted on it we have applied for a grant from Forever Manchester so keep your fingers crossed.    I am also going to contact Theo the station Manager and ask him if he can supply us with a tin of Northern Blue paint so that we can brighten up the existing lamp posts

Sainsbury’s Denton

In a recent conversation with Mark the manager of Sainsbury’s Denton we discussed our problem about having a fund raising day in their Foyer. Because of a missunderstanding we were told that we could not sign up any members all we could do was collect money. Let me say this is not the case Mark told me he had no objection to us signing up members and he along with Andrew Gwynne was doing everything in his power to help us for which i thanked him so all i have to do now is arrange a date  with Jan as to when we can have our day fundraising

The Campaign

Our campaign for a train service took a turn for the better when during the last two weeks Tameside and Stockport Councils at council meetings ratified their backing for our campaign. Then apparentely the result was poured scorn on by Andrew Fender from Transport for Greater Manchester saying the cost of starting a new service from Stockport to Manchester was prohibitive and there was not the rolling stock available.  But our two groups Reddish South and Denton are not proposing a new service we are talking about existing services being diverted at Stockport and running round to Victoria through Reddish South and Denton  and don’t forget Victoria in the future is going to be used as a through station that means any service to Victoria will carry on to further destinations so it seems Andrew Fender has got it all wrong
