FOWS on short-list for national awardAugust 7, 2008
FOWS are delighted to have been short-listed for the Best Station Adoption Group at this year’s ACoRP Community Rail Awards. To have reached the short-list of 5 in Britain’s most prestigious, national community rail awards ceremony is quite an achievement for a group just over a year old.
FOWS’ competition entry was endorsed by Northern Rail, showing the strength of the working relationship we have with the train operator.
Our nomination recognised both the practical improvements we have made on the station itself, and our efforts to involve community groups and local politicians with the station (something that we would like to do much more of in the coming year).
The other groups on the national short-list are Brierfield in Lancashire, Leamington Spa, Bruton (Dorset), and Christchurch (also Dorset).
The award winners will be announced at the ACoRP Community Rail conference on September 19th.
