Another busy year for FRECCLESMarch 31, 2009
This week we had the pleasure of attending the AGM of our colleagues at the Friends Of Eccles Station (FRECCLES … of course !) .
FRECCLES are a hard-working and well-organised group who have done a spectacular job of transforming a tipping ground into sizeable station gardens, and are campaigning to promote the station as an interchange for bus, tram and change serving the Trafford Centre, the Quays, and the BBC’s new MediaCity development.
FRECCLES have organised themselves into sub-groups to tackle specific issues like improving connection options, station heritage, a website, and of course the gardening.
FRECCLES were established a couple of years before FOWS and gave us a lot of advise and support when we were still finding our feet. We salute their achievements and count ourselves lucky to have made good friends of the Friends !
