Last Tuesday the 10th January Natasha Wilding Northern's Head of Stations at Manchester paid an inspection visit to Broadbottom, Dinting, Glossop and Hadfield Stations. She was accompanied by Theo, Glossop Line Manager. We know Natasha because she kindly switched on our Christmas Lights 3 years ago so Theo said Neil could meet her again at Glossop. Beforehand much much work going on - 5 ISS personnel cleaning and tidying plus Neil in preparation for Natasha's arrival - a bit like a Royal Visit! At one point Neil is frantically fretting over a red mark on the floor of the waiting room knowing he has 5 minutes to get rid of it!! He does just as Natasha and Theo arrive! Natasha is very complimentary about the imrovements - the new Waiting rooms/Booking Office and Simon's displays. She ponders buying one of Tacey's pictures! Neil invites her to find her photo in Chris Strogens' homage to FOGS! She is really taken aback at the Embankment and the changes here declaring kindly that Glossop is now one of Northern's Flagship stations. We are now thinking of putting HMS GLOSSOP over the entrance!
