Friends of Walkden Station – and our friends at FRECCLES (Eccles station) – both enjoyed success with national recognition in the 2010 Community Rail Awards.

FOWS were second in the Best Marketing Event category for our Sunday Service Launch Gala. First place went to First Great Western for their “Bicester Link Launch”

We didn’t get into the top three in the Best Station Adoption Group category, but we’re very pleased to have been  shortlisted anyway. Friends of Wemyss Bay in Scotland won this award.

FRECCLES success came in the highly competitive Best Station Garden category where they were awarded 3rd place – our congratulations to them.

Full details of the winners in all categories can be found on the ACoRP website.
