FOWS miss out at national awards

September 21, 2008

FOWS reached the national shortlist of 5 for the Association of Community Rail Partnership’s Best Station Adoption Group, but at Friday’s awards ceremony in Plymouth we were pipped by another Northern Rail station group – the Friends of Brierfield – in 3rd, the Friends of Bruton in 2nd, and the 1st prize went to Friends of Leamington Station.

Our hearty congratulations go to all the award winners – listed on ACoRPs website.

FOWS were grateful to attend the ceremony as guests of Northern Rail, and delighted that Northern stations won several other awards including a 1st prize for the brilliant METAL art studios established in disused station buildings at Edge Hill.
