Congratulations to all involved in Friends of Goostrey Station (FoGS) for winning The Diversity Award; the award for involving people with different cultures, abilities and backgrounds.
Frodsham was the overall winner. Cheshire is unique in that it is the only county to have a Best Kept Stations award. Their aims are :
To promote, publicise and encourage community involvement to improve railway stations by holding an annual competition, and by other means, to find the Best Kept Station in Cheshire and other examples of good practice
To hold an annual event to support this aim by recognising and publicising such activities by giving Awards and to promote these stations and the railway industry in Cheshire.
To encourage community involvement and recognition of the significance of their railway stations, particularly by young persons, through conservation, environmental projects and associated education, artworks, at the stations and their environs.
To work in partnership with the railway industry, Local Authorities, Parish and Town Councils and other relevant stakeholders to achieve these aims.
Well done Goostrey…..and don’t forget FoGS are always looking for more volunteers. Working party mornings are on second Sundays.
