Welcome to the Friends of Handforth Station
We are a local community action group, formed in 1996 when the outlook for the station seemed bleak. Our primary aims are:
- To make changes for the better at the station where we can (the many “Handforth” rail sign-posts, “Art In A Box”, annual Christmas Lights, keeping the station tidy, and so on).
- To campaign and lobby the relevant authorities for improved access to the station, and for other areas where we can’t make the change ourselves.
- To represent the users of the station.
As you will read elsewhere on this website, the station has seen a remarkable turnaround in fortunes over the past 12 years thanks to the group working in partnership with the local community, businesses and rail industry.
