In May 2024 volunteers from the community ‘set to’ with the station friend’s group to litter pick the harder-to-reach areas around the station and clear overgrown vegetation. The station friend’s group has been busy painting fencing recently and the planters are filled with colourful flowers to welcome visitors and locals alike. A new artwork was also installed featuring photographs by local young person, Imogen Murray. Station friend’s groups from along the South Fylde Line joined in the celebrations.

Community Rail Lancashire coordinated the event as part of Community Rail Week to showcase the important role local community volunteers can play in making their station an attractive gateway to their community.

Station adopters and volunteers are invaluable at enhancing stations. New station adoption volunteers along the South Fylde line and in particular at Blackpool Pleasure Beach would be very much welcome. If you’d like to get involved email: adopters@northernrailway.co.uk.

And Blackpool Central…

By 1911 Blackpool central was the world’s busiest railway station. After delivering millions of holiday makers and making Blackpool the town that it is, Blackpool Central Station closed in November 1964.

Fast forward through 60 years and many different failed plans and the site is finally to be developed as a new leisure attraction. All about the new Blackpool Central development here
