For the 5th year running, Alsager station has been recognised at the annual Cheshire Best Kept Stations awards and this year it has taken the top accolade - Overall Winner. 

Alsager station is on East Midlands Trains’ (EMT) Crewe-Stoke-Derby route, which North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership (NSCRP) works to promote and develop. Alsager is the epitome of a real community station, and it is the level of community engagement and support that has won Alsager this year’s top award. 

This year, NSCRP projects developed and delivered with the station volunteers and EMT, including a dedicated award-winning marketing project – Make Tracks for Alsager -  to promote services from the station,  which has grown the passenger base; a project with children from Betley Primary School to help them use stations safely; a station gardens improvement project supported by Alsager Women’s Institute; station ‘twinning’ with Rose Hill Marple station to share good practice in community rail, and, of course, the unstinting work of the station volunteers to create award-winning station gardens appreciated by passengers, all contributed to Alsager picking up the top award, and being named Cheshire Best Kept Station Winner

Faye Lambert, Project Manager for NSCRP said: “This is a great achievement for Alsager station and the town, and is a tribute to the outstanding community and volunteer support for the station. It also reflects the great value that community rail and volunteer support can bring to local stations such as Alsager, which is especially rewarding for us at North Staffordshire CRP in what is our 10th anniversary year.”
