Salford Mayor visits Walkden Station

Salford’s new Mayor Ian Stewart (left) tours the station with FOWS Chairman Andy Barlow

FOWS welcomed the recently elected Mayor of Salford Ian Stewart to the station yesterday as part of a fact-finding visit to Walkden.
The Mayor met with several community groups at the Gateway Centre before travelling to the station with FOWS Chair Andy Barlow. At the station the party was joined by FOWS member Preva Crossley for a tour of the platforms, pointing out the various enhancements that have been made by FOWS or as a result ofour working together with Northern Rail and Transport for Greater Manchester.
The Mayor took so much interest in FOWS’ work that he had to be practically dragged away from the station by his team !
We hope the Mayor took away an impression of a “can-do” group that has made a positive difference to a valuable local amenity, and will lead to further collaboraions on station improvements with the city council.
