The Friends of Levenshulme Station will hold a meeting on Wednesday 18 May 2022, 18.30-19.30 at Arcadia Library and Leisure Centre.
Network Rail will start work on improvements to Levenshulme Station this month.
Work is scheduled to start on Monday 28th September and finish on Friday 13th November 2020 with work taking place between 7am and 5pm.
Flooding in the subway under the platforms has been a problem for many years. The inside of the station will be upgraded with new lighting, flooring (a new concrete and resin floor), a new ceiling, cladding and painting.
The work will involve a temporary closure of the subway tunnel so the old Albert Road entrance will be reinstated permanently. This will provide access to platform 1 only until the subway reopens. Access to platform 2 will continue from the existing entrance. Access to both platforms will be available from either side of the tracks once work is completed.
Apart from the reopening of the Albert Road station entrance no other improvements will be done as part of these improvements. Friends of Levenshulme Station continue to campaign for access improvements alongside other local groups such as the LCA, local councillors (Dzidra Noor, Basat Sheikh and Bernard Stone) and our MP (Afzal Khan).
Emergency meeting about cuts to train services.
Just when you were feeling short of an election to vote in!
Friends of Leve Station Annual General Meeting will be on Wednesday 17 May at 6:30 pm at the Arcadia.
Amongst other things the AGM will elect officers for the coming year and set a subscription (the proposal is to set this at a nominal £1 per member) so please try to attend if you can.
1. Apologies for absence
2. Minutes of previous AGM
3. Officer’s reports:
b) Secretary – including Annual Report
4. Election of Officers for 2017/2018
5. Motions (see below)
6. Any other Business relevant to the AGM
Motions for FoLS AGM 2017:
The Friends of Levenshulme Station annual membership fee for 2017-2018 will be set at £1.00 per member.
Proposed: Ian Ford, Seconded: John Brown
Notes: the following notes are an explanation only and do not form part of the motion.
a. This isn’t about money – the few quid will doubtless be useful to cover small items we currently rely on individual generosity for but the issue is about sorting out our membership.
b. We currently have a mailing list but no formal membership. The current officers want as many people to be involved as possible and want to keep an open list for everyone with any interest and to continue to welcome anyone interested to our meetings. However we believe that we do need a formal membership who can vote to elect officers and on any policy matters.
c. Our constitution requires us to consider a membership fee every year – which has always been set at £0.00. We thought the easiest way to list actual members was to have nominal membership fee – the members are simply those who have paid.
The next meeting of Frinds of Levenshulme Station is Wednesday (15 March) at the Inspire cafe from 6.30pm till 7.30pm. All welcome!
Please note this is a change from our usual Community Room in Arcadia Leisure Centre. It’s a one-off meeting at Inspire due to a double booking of the Arcadia community room.
