Local Council Results: FOWS Win – and Lose – in Walkden South !

May 12, 2012

Congratulations to FOWS member Labour’s Richard Critchley who last week won election to Salford City Council representing Walkden South.

However Richard’s victory came at the expense of Conservative opponent – and fellow FOWS member – Anne Broomhead. Our commiserations to Anne.

The story illustrates FOWS’ commitment to full political engagement with local councillors and MPs, without bias or attachment  to any particular party. FOWS work with anyone and everyone who has the interests of the station at heart !

FOWS current membership includes 2 councillors from Walkden South – Iain Lindley (Con) and Richard Critchley (Lab).

We’d  love to see the councillors from Walkden North and other nearby wards whose constituents make up most of the station’s passenger base getting involved with FOWS too !
