POYN­TON train sta­tion has been named one of the best in the county.

It won the Cheshire East award for be­ing a tidy sta­tion with well-tended gar­dens and its re­cent restora­tion of the wait­ing room.

Sta­tion man­ager Julie Corke picked up the gong at the at the 13th An­nual Awards Evening for Cheshire Best Kept Sta­tions.

She de­scribed the awards as ‘a well de­served trib­ute to the ded­i­cated sta­tion staff who go above and be­yond their re­mit to care for their sta­tion’.

The Awards were pre- sented by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieu­tenant of Cheshire, David Briggs and Pro­fes­sor Paul Salve­son, a founder of the Com­mu­nity Rail move­ment.

Alex Hynes, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of North­ern Rail, said: “Our sta­tions in the heart­land of Cheshire stand out as a fan­tas­tic model of what a strong com­mu­nity rail part­ner­ship can achieve.”
