Triple celebration at Alsager Station

18th May 2021

Hard working station volunteers, local councillors and officers and East Midlands Railway (EMR) staff gathered at Alsager Station on Tuesday to celebrate recent achievements: New dementia friendly signage, a Cheshire Best Kept Station award and the welcome return of the full EMR service to the town.

  1. Alsager is a dementia friendly community (DFC) and its station has recently been recognised as working to become Dementia Friendly.
  2. The Friends of Alsager Station were awarded a special Cheshire Best Kept Station award for their contribution to the dementia friendly project and for their ongoing work on the station’s extensive gardens.
  3. From 16 May EMR reinstated their hourly service at Alsager Station which had been temporarily reduced since September 2020. This was thanks in part to a campaign led by Alsager Town Council, North Staffs Rail Passenger Group and North Staffs Community Rail Partnership. Not only will Alsager residents regain their service between Crewe and Derby, but they will be able to take full advantage of this year’s EMR route extension to Nottingham, a popular tourist, business and educational destination, and Newark Castle. In addition, passengers also continue to enjoy a direct service to Stafford and Birmingham New Street with London Northwestern Railway.
