We've produced a short video on the Home page of this website describing how the Station Master's House was renovated from the dilapidated old building into a community hub and library. We hope you enjoy it.

We have received a grant from the Access for All fund which will enable us to complete the purchase and installation of the lift at the Station Master’s House. The grant was obtained by Merseyrail on our behalf and we are buying the lift from Stannah, a British company with a factory in Hampshire. The lift shaft and associated works are already in place. Our contractor William Scott...

Our website has been redesigned in preparation for the opening of the library for click-and-collect when this is possible, and of course full opening later in the year. We hope you like the new colour scheme and layout which we feel is cleaner and easier on the eye. The library link in the header section will indeed let you browse out library stock, but unfortunately not yet reserve any books for collection until it is safe to do so. Our two managers, Tim and Ian, will be regularly assessing...

The small outside courtyard has largely not been touched...
As you can see from the recent photos below real progress is being made in the Station Masters House. All the hard work and planning is reaping results and the house is now taking shape. The carpet upstairs has been fitted and once all the bookshelves have been built, fitted and varnished then the remaining carpet can be fitted on the stairs and downstairs rooms. Our thanks to Tania of Shaw's Floors in Lynton Road for donating the flooring. The transformation is almost complete. The...
As you can see when compared to previous photographs slow but steady progress is being made to the internal renovations. It has been difficult during the lockdown but the builders have observed social distancing at all times with only one person often working in the house.
