Friends of Heaton Chapel Station
The ‘Friends of Heaton Chapel Station’ group was formed in 2011 to improve the station by looking after the gardens and through art projects. We also want to encourage greater use of the station by promoting the facilities, services and destinations served, and by lobbying for improvements where necessary.
We have already transformed :
- the flower beds
- displayed a 'Running Man' artwork
- upgrade one ramp with new stonet wide
- built new wooden framed flower containers
- acquired eight flower planters, now in bloom, around the station
- provided a 3 foot wide 'Victorian ' clocK
- discovered a 'Bridge to Nowhere' [art project]
- displayed 50 photographs and posters
- a library for rail users
- won ACoRP awards in 2012, 2014, 2015.
We are always in need of more volunteers to help maintain the station gardens and keep the area neat and tidy. You don't have to be an enthusiast or expert to help - just turn up at one of our events or monthly meetings in the Moor Club on Heaton Moor Road [usually on the 1st Monday of each month at 7 pm].
This website tells you about our activities and how to join in. We also have some interesting information and photos about the history of the station and line.
