FRIENDS OF ASHBURTON STATION.
NEXT MEETING FRIDAY 5th DECEMBER – 19.00 – St LAWRENCE CHAPEL, ASHBURTON.
Thank you to those who attended the short notice meeting on the 28th November. Around 20 people devoted their evening towards the cause and great progress has been made. Roughly 30% of the people there were residents of Ashburton and they discussed the huge economic benefits that a railway presence could create for the town. The next stage will be to create a formal group with the appointment of roles and responsibilities for those who wish to get involved and this will take place at the next meeting on 5th December in St Lawrence Chapel, Ashburton at 19.00. This will once again be open to all those who would like to find out more about the possibilities and benefits of preservation of the unique station area and eventual railway reinstatement to the town.
I look forward to seeing you all there and please spread the word!
