Friends of Littleborough Stations

2016 Projects

An ongoing project is recruitment of members, including those who may wish to help further by serving on the FoLS Committee. If you're interested in joining FoLS and becoming more involved please email us via the contacts form. 

Our big project for 2016 was to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the opening of Summit Tunnel and we worked in partnership with STORM on this. Littleborough Historical and Archaeological Society opened the History Centre for the celebrations. 

Throughout the year we will also be seeking sponsorship for the planters at Littleborough and to meet our day-to-day running costs. 

We also want to identify the major events in and around Littleborough & Smithy Bridge throughout 2017 and aim to have a presence at these events

We will continue to organise fund-raising events; litter picks; gardening days, and of course, Littleborough’s famous Santa Special.
