Several of our volunteers are also actively involved in gardening activities on the station with the kind cooperation of TransPennine Express.
This includes planting in the existing boxes on platforms 1, 4 and 8 and a larger area at the western end of Platform 4 which is being developed as a memorial garden to Billy Bolt. Billy’s Garden commemorates his railway service and his great assistance and support when the Friends group was set up.
A bench commemorating Billy's railway career was unveiled by his wife Val. It stands on Platform 4 next to the garden.
