Work has been completed on a project to ease access to the booking hall for wheelchair users. There is now a ramp (compliant to DDA regulations) leading to the door of the office.
Pupils from Wilmslow Grange Primary School visited the station on 12th June as guests of Northern Rail and Friends of Handforth Station.
Having been introduced to Station Manager Adrian Barkley they were issued “platform tickets” at the booking office by Terry before visiting the “down” platform to view the sleeper carvings and Rotary Garden. Highlights were, no doubt, the trains passing through and the stop at a local bakery for cakes on the way back to school!
Artist Paul Noon has made a start (May 2009) on the next phase of sleeper carvings in our Rotary garden. This was funded through Macclesfield Borough Council/Cheshire East. Keep an eye out for him at work.
