As stated in the Newsletter the inaugral AGM of the friends of Denton Station will be held on 11th August at Victoria Park Community Centre there is a slight aleration The AGM is at 7 00pm not 7 30pm then the regular meeting follows immediately after


The raffle which at the time of writing seems to be a succsess but because our member school St Marys Primary has just had their summer fair and has had two of their own raffles on the go they have not sold any friends tickets so the committee have extended our raffle to the end of this month and the draw will take place the first week in August Alan Jones Chairman
