MID CHESHIRE CRP REPORT 2016

20th April 2017

The Mid Cheshire CRP has published its Annual Report for 2016 ....

John Oates, Chair of both the Community Rail Partnership and Mid Cheshire Rail Users Association opens the report saying ...

"Cheshire Best Kept Stations brings together volunteers, councillors and local mayors together with representatives from the rail world to celebrate all the excellent work that station friends do at stations across Cheshire.

We were particularly pleased to see Delamere and Knutsford win best kept station awards.

The partnership with Petty Pool College at Delamere and with the staff at Knutsford station makes a big difference.

This is what community rail is all about.

April saw more celebrations as the new franchises started across the North with the new TransPennine Express franchise and the new Northern franchise.

Not surprisingly the new Northern franchise has seen staff leave and retire and we have welcomed new faces.

Eight months in to the franchise and it feels like Arriva Rail North are still feeling their way in some aspects.

This has impacted on the CRP in that we have lost volunteers from along the Line and are having to find our way through new policies and procedures.

Nevertheless, we are pleased with the new regional structure, are meeting regularly with Liam Sumpter our new Central Region director and are looking forward to the new Northern staff and systems bedding in."
