Cheshire Best Kept Station Awards 2016 – Mid Cheshire wins three! ….

Posted on January 15th, 2017, by The Chairman

Sixteen stations in the former county of Cheshire scooped awards at the 14th Cheshire Best Kept Stations Awards Evening held on Tuesday 10 January 2017, and attended by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire, the High Sheriff of Cheshire, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Chester, the Mayors of Cheshire East, Halton, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, and six other Mayors.

The Awards were presented before 140 guests at The Grange Theatre, Hartford, Northwich by Prof. Paul Salveson MBE, Group Advisor Society & Communities at Arriva UK Trains and a ‘founding father’ of the Community Rail movement.

Poynton won the coveted top “Best Kept Station’ Award”, Chester won a special Queen’s 90th Birthday award for commemorative events, and Rose Hill won the first Transport for Greater Manchester Award to be presented.

We hope that the event was enjoyable and inspiring for all who attended and that everyone will carry on the good work at your stations in the coming year.

The photographs of the evening can be accessed and downloaded through this Dropbox link.

Both printable and web use versions are available and can be freely used.

Congratulations to Chester (Queens 90th Birthday Award), Delamere (Roberts Bakery Award) and Knutsford (Highly Commended Certificate for Queens 90th Birthday) for achieving this against such strong competition.
