Hutton Cranswick tidy up 2014

 

Article from Driffield Times & Post 12.6.14

 

Hutton Cranswick station is well used.  Recently drivers exiting the station have complained about visibility being compromised by a very overgrown hedge.

Now the hedge has been cut down to size thanks to volunteers from YCCRP, Village in bloom and community minded villagers.

On 5th June once the hedge had been checked for late nesting birds, Tony Cooper, Alan Gouldthorpe and Lawrie Greenwood (YCCRP) began cutting down the arboreal ivy.  Fortunately for the group, local resident and Parish Councillor, John Poolford came by and offered to assist by using his hedge cutter.  This speeded up the job significantly.

ViB members provided green bags, rakes and brushes and assisted with clearing up the cuttings.  Hutton Cranswick in bloom is a group member of the YCCRP so it was a useful experience to work together for the improvement of their local station.

Cliff Mayall, Northern Rail Station Manager, East Yorkshire, was on hand to oversee the work and discuss other station issues with ViB member Glynis Jenner.

It would seem that care of the hedge had ‘fallen between the cracks’ of responsibility.  However,  now that it has been ‘cut down to size’ Northern Rail contractors ISS should be able to maintain it.

Sincere thanks to everyone who helped, especially to John Poolford and Sean Paxton from Station House whose input greatly assisted the working group.

Thanks to John and Sandy for providing refreshments.  Cliff Mayall commented that ‘It is a privilege to work with the Village in bloom group who do a fantastic job looking after Hutton Cranswick station—it’s the best station on the line.’

 

 

 

 

Easter Special - April 2015

 

The Easter Egg Special train ran on Saturday 4th April.  It went very well on a rather busier service than in previous years.  Thanks to Barry for organisation and distributing the raffle tickets, and to Alan for the photographs.
   The two winners on the first section (Hull-Bridlington) were presented with their eggs at Bridlington. They travelled from Driffield to Bridlington, but unfortunately their details were misplaced.  The winners on the remaining section were Michaela Woods, travelling from Bridlington to Scarborough, and Finlay Sanderson of Leeds who was travelling from Filey to Scarborough.
   Children on the Special were given a Cadbury Crème Egg, and remaining eggs were distributed on the return journey.
Thanks also to the suffering crew (who were rewarded for their trouble!)
