We are today calling another demonstration to further our cause.

Tomorrow, Salford Central Railway Station is being ceremonially re-opened by both the Secretary of State for Transport, Ruth Kelly, and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Hazel Blears, who is also the local MP for Salford.

Whilst we welcome the development of any railway station, we feel that the potential destruction of a national asset such as Woodhead by National Grid should not be ignored by this government and we plan to use every possible opportunity we can to remind the Secretary of State of this.

Details of the demo are as follows:

Date: Friday, 22nd February 2008

Time: 12.00 p.m. (for 12.30 p.m.)

Place: Salford Central Railway Station, New Bailey Street, Salford, M3 5ET

Station information is here. The station is very easily accessible - it is only a few hundred yards from the junction of Bridge Street & Deansgate in Central Manchester.
