The 2013 operational season at the Apedale Valley Light Railway has got off to a great start. Unexpectedly, sun shone on a ceremony first thing this morning to mark the opening of a new access pathway to the station. This was funded by the Staffordshire Local Community Fund. This grant was facilitated by Staffordshire County Councillor Derrick Huckfield, and the picture shows Councillor Huckfield and Moseley Railway Trust chairman Phil Robinson declaring the footpath open for business. Phil Robinson said “We are very grateful to Councillor Huckfield and the Staffordshire Local Community Fund for their assistance. We now have a fine, smooth all-weather path to our station which means our visitors can discard the wellies and access will be much easier for all, including our mobility-impaired guests”.
We’ve seen lots of visitors, and given away lots of chocolate eggs to those who completed the Easter Egg Hunt – and we’re doing it all again on Sunday and Monday. Get in touch here.
