120th Anniversary Party success !

July 3, 2008

FOWS held a celebration of Walkden station’s 120th anniversary yesterday morning, distributing 120 free goody bags to commuters, displaying historic photos of the station and enjoying a champagne toast and cermonial birthday cake cutting.

With great support from our colleagues at Northern Rail and British Transport Police the event put a smile on the faces of some slightly surprised passengers, and hopefully gave people a reason to feel a little more pride in the venerable old station.

Look out for coverage in next week’s Salford Advertiser.
