Twelve Tales of Christmas – Day by Day

Each day from the 12th of December until Christmas day a new children’s story reading will appear here, we hope you enjoy them.

New Renovation Video

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.

New lift to be installed

Great news, we’ve finally received funding to complete installation of a lift in The Station Master’s House. 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 Ltd is overseeing the installation and the estimated installation date is 11th March 2021. 

This means that we open fully we will be able to offer full access to the whole building for everyone, including those in wheelchairs.

Welcome to our new website

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 when this is possible with the trustees, so please check back to see our latest news.
