For three weeks Stalybridge rail station is being transformed into a community hubs as part of Transport for Greater Manchester’s Platforms For All project.
Spaces at the station will be used for a range of free activities for the benefit of passengers and the local communities. Events include arts exhibitions and classes, community gym classes, mental health awareness sessions, debt advice workshops and Christmas stalls.
Platforms For All is part of Action Stations, a TfGM project that transforms the city-region’s stations into community hubs by connecting them to social enterprises.
TfGM believes this innovative partnership-based project will enhance the stations, stimulate the local pride, and create a sense of community ownership.
