Stockport's Rail Services

Your readers may be interested in my petition to the Government set up recently when I heard that the long-standing Act of Parliament concerning the Viaduct and trains having to stop at Edgeley Station had been over-turned by the Department of Transport. Here is a link to my petition:
Much as I've always admired the architecture and sheer scale of Stockport Viaduct, it's presence across the Mersey valley is to my mind only acceptable so long as Stockport residents get a decent rail service with all trains having to stop at Edgeley Station. I would therefore welcome any additional exposure of this petition that you are able to give through the magazine,
Michael Perkin (formerly of Offerton and Hazel Grove)

Tour of Eccles Church

A tour of St. Mary's Church Eccles, was arranged for Thursday last. In spite of the cold weather nine members turned up at Piccadilly Station. A short tram ride got us to Eccles and after a much needed hot drink two groups were taken around by members of the church.

The Party then doubled back to Salford Quays and half went around the Lowry and the remainder, the Imperial War Museum.

Thank you to Kevin Dranfield for organising another good trip

The next day out will be Bury Market / Steam Railway, on March 26th meet as usual Piccadilly Station Meeting point 10.30am.
