Get Involved!

Our volunteer team have helped to deliver real improvements for passengers at stations along the North Staffordshire Line, and have won many awards for their efforts.

We are also fortunate to have very strong support for our work from the community.

Here are just a few examples:

  • Staffordshire’s very own JCB helped sponsor a welcome mural for Uttoxeter station;
  • REACH Pupil Referral Service created colourful poster artwork for Longport station;
  • Artwork by MaryHill High School and Clough Hall School decorates Kidsgrove station
  • Amco are joint-funding a station mural for Longton station
  • Heath Fields Primary in Hatton produced ‘Happy Birthday’ posters to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tutbury & Hatton station
  • Alsager Town Council provides funding to help the station volunteers maintain Alsager station gardens
  • Forsbrook Parish Council and Heath House Farm are sponsors of the station planters at Blythe Bridge

Why not join our award-winning volunteer team? If you can spare a few hours on a regular basis and have an interest in gardening, we’d be pleased to hear from you.

You can also get involved by sponsoring one of our projects, plants and gardening equipment to help the station volunteers, or becoming a funding partner.

Just get in touch with the partnership to find out more.
