Children jazz up station with art

Glossopdale schoolchildren have cemented they place in history by creating permanent artwork to spruce up Hadfield train station.

Pupils from Hadfield Nursery, St Andrew’s Junior School, St Charles Primary School, Padfield Community Primary School and Hadfield Infant School designed pieces on the theme of Hadfield and its surroundings.

Yesterday (Wednesday), the artwork was put up to adorn the internal boarded up windows at the rail station, on Station Road, which adjoins the vacant Edward’s Wine Bar.

The young artists used a variety of media including paint, ceramics and pipe-cleaners to create images and collages of the town, Hadfield Hall, the reservoir, the railway and the mills.

The project, which was organised by the Friends of Hadfield Station, was sponsored by Northern Rail, D and D Newsagents and Glossop Glass and Glazing.

High Peak Borough Councillor Vicky Mann also donated money from the Initiative Fund to enable the initiative to take place.

Joy Hallsworth, one of the Friends said: “They have all produced beautiful pieces of work.”
