His work at St Annes and Squires Gate was always appreciated as he helped to make the station look cared for and well maintained. He had a similar role at Squires Gate and visited that station on an almost daily basis as he lived just across the road.
The two plaques, commissioned by the Station Friends Group many months ago should have been unveiled by his wife Margaret and representatives from the rail industry but the on-going regulations concerning groups meeting etc and people being ‘discouraged’ from using stations meant that those plans had to be put on hold.

Instead it was agreed that the plaques would go up and be acknowledged officially at a later date. Glynn laid the foundation for the work at St Anne’s station many years ago and sadly a number of his contemporaries have also passed on. They too are recognised by plaques on the site.
To mark Gynn’s work at Squires Gate, the station friends group arranged for the plaque to be installed this week by a bench and planter combination which his wife has previously sown with bulbs though currently it’s the summer bedding that continues to provide some colour.
