Surprise Visit by Ruth Kelly and Barbara Keeley

October 11, 2007

As those present at last week’s public meeting heard, local MP Barbara Keeley takes a keen interest in the improvement of Walkden station: she spoke earnestly to the meeting about its problems, and promised to speak to Secretary of State for Transport and MP for Bolton West Ruth Kelly.

FOWS were delighted to learn this week that the two MPs have visited the station.  Naturally we hope that its poor state will have made an impression on the Secretary of State, and that the visit will help secure some much needed investment. 

There is a full report on the MPs visit on Barbara Keeley’s weblog.  

The FOWS are grateful to both MPs for their interest in Walkden station, and for taking the time to visit the site.
