CHRISTMAS has officially arrived at Westhoughton Station after the community set up the annual festival display at the transport hub.

The Friends Of Westhoughton Station, which is responsible for the upkeep of the station, has set up a model of Santa Claus, his reindeer and his sleigh.

The display is close to one of the 'Westhoughton' signs on the platform.

The group was set up in 2012 to redevelop and improve the station and its facilities. For more information, go to
