Penkridge Station Project

Community Rail project shows children’s pride in Penkridge

On Wednesday 19th July 2017, primary school children from Princefield First School and Marshbrook First School, Penkridge, joined with North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership (NSCRP), train operator partner London Midland and the local community at Penkridge station yesterday to unveil their very own station art created to promote where they live.

The art project `My Village` is the result of a partnership between NSCRP, Penkridge Parish Council and local schools to give children an opportunity to develop special art for their station to reflect community pride.

Through `My Village`, local schoolchildren were asked to draw their own interpretation of what Penkridge means to them. 10 very individual designs were chosen by NSCRP for display in new poster cases sponsored and fitted by London Midland in the station waiting shelters at Penkridge station.

Emily and Isabelle (aged 9) from Princefield First School and Edward (7), Finlay and Rose (both 8) from Marshbrook First School are the first to have their colourful designs on display at the station. Five further designs by children from St Michaels First School and Penkridge Middle School will be displayed during the coming months.

Penkridge railway station serves the town of Penkridge and is in the Staffordshire County Council authority.

It is situated on the Birmingham branch of the West Coast Main Line. To the north, the line continues towards Stafford. To the south, the line continues towards the city of Wolverhampton. The station is operated by London Midland, who run all of its train services.
