Who we are
Friends of Westhoughton Station was set up at the end of 2012 to re-develop and improve the station and its facilities. It's a long term project, and we aim to clear away the rubble, rubbish and weeds and plant flowers to brighten up the station. Local schools are getting involved and will be providing art work to be displayed. An area has been set aside to attract wildlife, and we have already put up some bird feeders and intend to have nesting boxes too.
We meet every Sunday each month, usually at 10am and you can stay as long as you like. If you're new, please contact us first, so we can arrange to give you a safety briefing, give you a high viz vest, and let you know what you'll need to bring with you. You can help us in a number of ways - we have people who love gardening and those who prefer to pick litter and tidy the station up - whatever your skills or preference you'll be warmly welcomed! As long as at least 2 people are present, for safety reasons, ad-hoc work dates may be arranged at any time, see the posters on the station platforms. We are always looking for volunteers to help, or donations of plants, bulbs, compost etc. Please get in touch if you want to get involved.
