Friends of Stations – Whalley
Whalley station has a Friends of Stations group formed by volunteers from Ribble Valley Rail, the local rail user group. RVR adopted the stations along the Clitheroe Line route as far as Entwistle when the train service was reintroduced between Blackburn and Clitheroe in 1994.
Whalley station has a number of planters on the platforms and a small garden on the approach to the Clitheroe bound platform which the volunteers look after keeping the station tidy and the planters weeded and watered.
Contact Ribble Valley Rail’s Friends of Stations Co-ordinator, Brian Haworth on 01254 386579 or email Community Rail Lancashire on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of the group or if you fancy getting involved.
