A look back 12 – and 24 – months …

October 24, 2010

The FOWS monthly Station Condition Report for October is now available from our website, and comparison with the report from October last year provides an encouraging reminder of how things have steadily improved in the last 12 months.
Back in Oct 2009 we had no CCTV or pigeon netting of course, and the report contained a depressingly familiar tale of graffiti around the premises, vandalised litter bins, a leaking roof over the stairs, pigeon mess on the platforms, and missing “Walkden” station signs.
Going back another year to October 2008 things were worse still with more vandalism, graffiti and problems with the roof.
Of course we know things could still be better, and we continue to look for way to improve the station, but there can be no doubt how the station has been improved in the last few years. A good time then to say “thanks” to Station Manager Pam Williams whose hard work has brought many of the benefits to Walkden.
