FOWS give station a tidy up

August 21, 2016

Weeded and re-stocked troughs

Thanks to our volunteers who were out in the rain this morning to give the station some TLC.

Our team weeded the beds and planters, replaced a few poorly plants, ripped up platform weeds, and did a litter pick down Park Road and the surrounding area.


Foliage and litter removed from in and around the station

We removed 5 large bags of vegetation and 1 bin bag of litter.

We hope you agree it looks a bit tidier in and around the station (for a little while at least !)


Plants on the Wigan platform after a haircut !


Vote for Art Work funding at Walkden station

August 20, 2016
FOWS are working with Wigan-based artist Mark Mennell to introduce an art scheme onto the station to improve the dismal condition of the entrance stairway.
We have applied for funding towards the project from Salford City Council’s Recycle and Reward programme.
Please take a minute to vote for us following the link below, and pass it on to any supportive friends, family and social media contacts you have ?
Thank you … Neil, FoWS
