It’s virtually ‘all change’ at our station project. Charmaine & George McKissock
are taking more of a back seat, and making way for new & enthusiastic
curators of our Art Exhibitions, and our ‘Words down the Line’ writers

Jane Ostler, who has previously exhibited with us (remember her
‘orange-themed’ exhibition?), will be looking after future art exhibitions on
the platforms & booking hall. Joining her will be Sue Dawes (who was once
responsible for the art exhibitions at the station), who will be taking charge
of local writers work showcased in our ‘Words Down the Line’ leaflets.

Our latest exhibition will display the work of local artist Jane Watson,
featuring a display of family pets on platform 2, and two Colne-side scenes in
the booking hall cabinets. We’ll also be featuring the work of Hilary Lazell
& Martin Newell, with a piece called ‘Leaves Down the Line’ on platform 1,
which features Hilary’s illustrations & Martin’s text (apparently also
available in advent calendar format). Jane can be contacted on:

Sue Dawes first ‘Words Down the Line’ leaflet features the work of
Jonathan King, Helen Chambers & Nicole Weller, and also features some
useful contact details for a variety of creative groups. Again, these leaflets
are available free in the station booking hall.
Sue Dawes can be contacted on: dawes@freeuk.com

We’re also celebrating our second anniversary of ‘Books Down the Line’,
which has proved very popular since the Garrett’s initial donation of bookcase
& books back in 2012. A big thank you to all who have contributed to the
success of this project: your kindly (& timely!) donations have almost
ensured that this initiative has become ‘self-managing’ !

We’re going to continue to manage the latter, and keep an overview of
the ‘Off the Rails’ project, including the station garden, (many thanks for all
your kind & supportive words during Gardens Open Day), so our train hasn’t
quite left the station yet…
