Community Rail Awards 2016
Since starting RSW we have been working alongside ‘Station to Station’ within the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration Project. Station to Station provided the perfect opportunity to put the spotlight on our rail lines and stations and to bring together diverse partners to create a community gala for our passengers.
The clear objective in taking part in this initiative was to organise a community rail celebration, get positive messages out about the railway and perhaps most importantly creative partnership working. We are part of a diverse mix of partners working together to provide a different experience for passengers passing through Piccadilly.
The project itself has been shortlisted for the Community Rail Awards 2016. The Annual Community Rail Awards were devised in 2005 so that the unsung heroes and heroines of the community rail world would have their hard work and dedication publicly recognised and rewarded.
The winners will be revealed at a gala dinner and presentation evening at The Floral Hall in Southport on Thursday 29th September 2016.
It is an amazing achievement for the organisers behind ‘Station to Station’ to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award throughout the rail industry and we’re extremely proud to be part of it.
