AGM date approaches

February 16, 2011

This year’s FOWS Annual General Meeting will be held at 7.15pm on Weds 2nd March in the Walkden Legion Club on Wilfred Road – that’s just 2 weeks away !

As usual we hope lots of members of the travelling public will attend to have their say on what FOWS should be tackling in the year ahead.

In the last 12 months we’ve scored some pretty big successes – none more so than the re-introduction of Sunday services after a 40 year gap. We were told it’s nearly impossible to get new train services started in England – but we did it !

Thanks to our really supportive partners at Northern Rail, Salford City Council and British Transport Police we’ve also seen CCTV cameras installed, anti-pigeon nets installed, and several arrests for anti-social behaviour at the station. The lesson is clear … there are significant gains that a volunteer group can achieve, and the more public support we have the better our chances of achieving more.

In addition to FOWS matters we’re also delighted to welcome the Rail Programme Director of GMPTE Stephen Clark, plus representatives of Northern Rail and BTP.

So why not come along and help shape FOWS’ plans for next year ?

Entrance is free (of course) and the Legion has a well-stocked, affordable bar so you don’t have to go thirsty !
