Cheshire is unique. It is the only county in England that has a Best Kept Station Competition.
The Friends of Handforth Station are proud to have won an award in every year bar one, since the Cheshire Best Kept Stations competition started in 2003. This run of success at Handforth continues: at the CBKS awards evening in Northwich on Fri 1st April, we were presented with the “Promoting Rail” award, sponsored by CrossCountry rail.
The award from CBKS acknowledged several pieces of work that FoHS did in 2021, including displaying videos on our own website, working on rail publicity with Handforth Town Council, running a Covid-safe quiz about Handforth Station, and hosting visits to our station from groups for the disadvantaged.
FoHS are delighted to have been recognised for our efforts, and we are proud to mount this plaque inside Handforth Station’s ticket office, for all to see.
