The Big Tidy Up event at Handforth Station on 12 March was a huge success with 30 volunteers leading their time and effort. The event was run by Friends of Handforth Station in partenrship with British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and Northern Rail. Rotary did work on their award-winning garden whilst 1st Handforth Guide Unit made great progress on preparing a plot of land for their new station garden. Birdboxes were built whilst 20 bags of litter were filled. Well done to all involved.
Handforth received the tidiest station award at Cheshire’s Best Kept Station Awards for 2010 held in Northwich.
On receiving the award Mike Bishop praised the support Friends of Handforth Station have received from Northern Rail, ISS, Rotary and the local community.
