Alsager Station Wins 4th ‘Best Kept Stations Award’

Staion awards feb 2015For the fourth year running, Alsager station has been recognised in the Cheshire Best Kept Stations competition. This year the station has received the high accolade of the ACoRP Award (Association of Community Rail Partnerships), which reflects outstanding achievement in partnership working and community involvement. Highlighted by the judges were the immaculate station gardens, improved and tended by the hard-working station volunteers and the level of involvement and support from the local community, including stunning artwork designed by Alsager School students for their station to commemorate the 1914-1918 War. Faye Lambert, Project Officer for North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership, which works to promote and develop the Crewe-Derby route, said: “To win four years in a row is a real tribute to the determination and ongoing support of the station volunteer team, who work on the station gardens in all weathers to make the station pleasant for passengers. This combined with great community projects, like the latest artwork by Alsager School, certainly makes Alsager a real community station.”
