The Friends of Handforth Station and the Friends of Malahide Station have completed the first ever twinning between International “Friends of” groups.
FoHS celebrated the event with a ceremonial flag-hoisting at the station on Tuesday, 1st May 2018.
The ceremony included a handover of four station name boards, two in Irish and two in English – one of each is now displayed on each platform. Handforth also received a Malahide flag, whilst a Handforth flag depicting the Honford star and Handforth Hall will fly at Malahide Station.
Jools Townsend, chief executive, Association of Community Rail Partnerships said “The Friends of Handforth are exemplary in the fantastic range of work they carry out to engage the community. We look forward to continuing to work with them to share their good practice and ideas across the community rail network.”
