Thanks for the memories !January 8, 2009
FOWS were delighted to be contacted by Syd Winward – a regular user of Walkden station back in the 1950’s when he was a pupil at Worsley Technical college.
Syd recalls the Waiting Room which used to adorn the platform being put to good use as fellow students waiting for the 16:30 departure to Atherton would use the waiting time to tackle their homework – and not always as individually as perhaps their tutors intended !
Syd emigrated to New Zealand many years ago but has learnt about FOWS through our website and says “the difference FOWS have made is obvious – keep up the good work”.
Thanks Syd – we will !
