Were very proud that at the 15th Cheshire Best Kept Stations Awards Evening held on Tuesday 23rd January 2018, Handforth Station won the “Youth Challenge Award” for our work with a number of schools and youth groups.
Some examples off the work we’ve done are:
- The Art in a Box gallery, created in two unused cycle lockers, is currently showcasing a changing display of works from Wilmslow High School’s art loan scheme.
- In December 2017, the 2017 reception class at St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School in Handforth created three colourful stained-glass effect Christmas windows for the Art in a Box display. See the previous news item here.
- Under our “Conservation” theme, local schools have designed flags for our flagpoles – the chosen design came from Rainbow Preschool, created by our youngest budding artists aged 2-4.
- Handforth Scouts also embraced our “Conservation” theme and in Autumn 2017 built Hedgehog Homes for our resident hedgehogs to hibernate in.
