On Saturday 3rd December FOGS will be hosting its annual Santa event at the station.
We will have music by the Altrincham based trio Spindrift, a display by Glossop Model Railway Club and a craftmaking stall - decorations for the tree with Andrea Strogen and Lesley Nixon. Seasonal refreshments ie Bunty and Jacqueline's hugely popular soups will be available again!
Santa arrives on the 11.49 train and every child present will receive a small free goody bag courtesy of Northern Rail. Santa will be assisted by Matthew Cox and Sam Scott from GODS' pantomime Dick Whittington.
The Christmas tree lights will be switched on by PETE MYERS Head of Service Quality at Northern Rail. The tree has kindly been supplied by Glossop Garden Centre. Seasonal decorations have already been put in the flower boxes by Bunty Gibson and Chris Harris and the remainder will be put into place Friday evening.
Although the renovation work on the platfrorm and canopy will result in less space than usual being available the event is going ahead with the kind permission of Network Rail. THeo McLauchlan, Glossop Line manager and Mark Barker Client and Stakeholder Manager for Northern willalso bepresent.
So do come along to join in the fun!!
